Race Date: Saturday, June 14th, 2014
Location: Canton, Michigan
- Sweater with beaded fireworks
- Red and blue socks
- Decorated Jazzy Jorts (jean shorts)
I decorated my jorts with some bows from the dollar store, felt stars super glued on on the front. For the back, I wrote the name of the race with glitter pens, and drew the Statue of Liberty in green fabric ink. Both the Statue and the glitter pen writings took a full day to dry.
I'd never run in jorts before, so I played it safe. I wrote running shorts under the jorts (is that cheating?) and lubed up the inner thighs with BodyGlide.

The weather was a little cool that morning - in the low 50s - which was lucky! My sweater was making things a little toasty. But I felt that I was channeling freedom and that's what mattered.
|And we're off!|
After the race, I went home, changed clothes, and Jason and I came back to spend a few hours at the festival. Had a great time at both the race and the festival!
