Picking up from last time –
How, oh how, did I forget to mention in the pre-race chapter the whole dressing all in white thing?!
This was something I didn’t think that much about until I realized how stressful it is for a few reasons. (Still fun, mind you – but fun and stressful, for sure.)
When I first was setting up my entry to the race, I decided to buy the white t-shirt, because why not? I was going to need a white t-shirt anyway, might as well buy theirs. (This is another brilliant idea by Color Me Rad, by the way. They seem so smart over there!)
So, I figured, okay. I got my t-shirt. I’m good.
But as I got closer to the race and started planning what I was going to wear and such, I realized “uh, wait a second. People can sort of see through white. And I have no white undergarments – none.” (Why would I, right? White is kind of boring… but I guess it can go under a lot of stuff.)
So, this is the first reason why it’s stressful to wear white – you have to worry about what you’re wearing underneath.
I also realized “hmm, what pants am I planning to wear to this part-ay? ‘Cause I also don’t have white pants. (You can see the stress building, right? ;))
So, I headed to Target. I did find an actually somewhat cute white bra. (High five, Target and Barely There.)
Then it was on to finding some white bottoms. There were pure white shorts. But I think it’s pretty safe to say I’m so not wearing shorts. There were some cute white flowy skirts I considered. After all, it is just a 5k. But ultimately, I decided I wanted pants pants pants.
There were no totally white pants – at least from what I saw. So, I shrugged and went with cream-colored pants. (I could’ve gone to other stores, but cha’mon now. (There’s not enough time in the day sometimes.))
So, I made do with cream-colored pants, knowing they should still show color pretty well. The pants were thick enough I didn’t even have to worry about getting white underwear (score).
Okay, so I have the clothing. Tomorrow, I’m gonna talk about a few more concerns with all-white clothing (*shakes head* I know, life’s rough…).
