There was a clue.

Earlier today, I was rushing out the door, trying to get my run before my next obligation. I went to put my house key into my pocket, but it was kind of flipped over funny and I had to fold it up to keep the key in.

Which should have been my clue.

But I didn't catch on and went running around town, thankfully not for very long. Because now, hours later (still in my running clothes because I'm going to get in another mile on the treadmill before bed), I walked by a mirror and realized...

My shorts are inside out. As in, the bloomers are on the outside. As in, it looks kind of like I'm wearing a gray cloth diaper over my shorts. And I ran around in public like this. Aren't I a great ambassador for runners?

P.S. I had a lot of running excitement over the week: 5K! New Shoes! The Best Running Store Ever! I'll share all about that later, but I had to let someone else in on this shorts issue.

P.P.S I'm getting in my long run after school tomorrow. I'm trying to get jazzed up about it, but I really wish I had someone to run with here. I just need a little more distraction from the fact that I'm trying to run 15+ miles.


  1. You're too funny! Might I also add that you were the one that almost jumped in the pool with your underwear remaining under your swimsuit. Only Rachel! Love ya though.

  2. I cannot tell you how happy this post made me. I have gone running with my running bra inside out and my shirt inside out, but I haven't yet managed this. I'm sure it's only a matter of time, but whenever it happens I'll know that I'm not the only one.

  3. Note to self, 'walk by a mirror before leaving the house'. Now you've probably started a new fashion trend for the rest of us runners.

  4. OMG! That is hilarious. And I promise I am laughing with you.

  5. Just found your blog -- running with your shorts inside out? Sounds like something I would do! Eh, maybe it'll start a trend :).

  6. This makes me LAUGH! It's funny because we've all done something similar before.
