Help!

I know I haven’t talked much about it this year compared to last, but race day is less than 48 hours away!  Eeekk!  In sooooo many ways I am MUCH more prepared than I was last year.  Mentally and physically I’m ready – excited, even (wha???).  However, there is still one last thing that I’ve been putting off and it’s making me feel unprepared. 
I need to figure out my race day attire.  I know, I know, first world problems.  But, still…look good, feel good.  Right?
I had every intention of buying a cute new running outfit to wear on the big day, but it seems that time somehow got away from me and before I knew it I was in Target last night with only 60 minutes to grocery shop AND find THE perfect outfit. So, what’s a girl to do?  Grab 3 different outfits, snap a few dressing room photos, consult with the blogosphere (that’s you!), and return the leftovers – that’s what!
So, here goes.  I want to know…what do you think?  Outfit 1, 2 or 3?

A couple things to keep in mind:
1. I WILL be wearing an actual sports bra on race day, not the cute pink polkadot number shown above.
2. I do realize that while Target gear might not be the best in terms of quality, I’ve never had any problems with it.  In my opinion, it’s cute (for the most part), fits well, and the price is right (I’m cheap, remember?).
3. This body of mine carried 4 babies in 5 years and I’m proud of it.  However, separated abdominal muscles (Diastasis recti) is an annoying condition I could live without.  Unfortunately, that is not an option.  So, I’d prefer to wear the outfit that “shows off” my protruding abs the least.
Ok, give it to me straight.  1, 2 or 3?

I choose #1.
I like the shorts the best and it looks the most comfy.
Plus your family will be able to spot the orange faster than the other colors.
Have fun, i have been thinking about you and how cool it is you are doing this.
Way to go Gal!

you look great Missy! My vote is #1...good luck, you'll do awesome!

Chelsie said...

#1. Because the shorts look awesome.
#2. Because the bright yellow is so happy and won't show swoobs as bad as the darker tops.

Tough choice, good luck with that and the race!

1 or 2. Bright colors are awesome! You look great in all of them! What's your secret? Good luck at your race!

I like #2 the yellow makes you look more tan (not that you're going for that) but yellow is so "in" too!! You look fabulous, all your hard work has paid off!! Good luck on Saturday you'll do GREAT!!!

#3...that being said and have run lots of race myself. My biggest advice is that you don't try anything new for race day, albiet clothes, food, drink. You don't know where these new clothes are going to rub and pinch, the fod will swttle or come up etc. yep, Debbie downer here...go with an outfit you have run in during training:)
