So, I have come to terms that race day is going to be HOT. With that being said, I have decided to ditch my black Sugoi tri top and wear a cute pink and purple one instead. Isn't it cute? :)
With sun rays blaring down on me during the run, the last thing I want is a black piece of clothing calling the sun rays to concentrate on my body. The thing is, I have yet to wear this tri top in an actual tri. I bought it months ago thinking I would wear it this season. But then, Outside PR was gracious enough to send me the Sugoi tri top to try and review and I love it and have worn it in every race since.
Although I'm not going to get a chance to swim or bike in it, I did get a chance to run in it this weekend. I headed out around 10:45, around the same time I'm hoping to be starting my run on Sunday. It was sunny and hot out. I ran for an hour and came back completely sweaty and red faced, but the top performed beautifully. So, it's definitely a go for the race. Plus, I think wearing a pink top will be easier for my family to pick me out of a crowd then a black top. And if they can see me, then they can cheer for me, and I have a feeling that I will need every cheer they can give me to help me through.
P.S. Sorry about not having a Humpastry Day post today. I promise I'll be back with something delicious next week! :)
