Running Fashion Don’ts – Brooks Running Gear Makeover

Ah! You made my day with your Brooks Running Gear Makeover pictures. I loved going through all of them. It was extra fun because I feel like I know you too, but I don’t get to see ya as much as you see me Smile

Thanks for all the submissions!!

I had over 70 entries and can’t post them all here your boss / SO / kids getting mad at you for spending an hour looking at funny strangers on the internet.

So I picked a handful of my favorite ‘worst dressed’. But don’t get me wrong – I love sweatpants. I am just working in getting better so I don’t embarrass myself so often.

i love sweatpants

Question: Do you destroy embarrassing pictures or keep them for the memories?


  1. Teresa says

    Oh, I’ve been there. I wore way too warm of clothes on my first 5K races, and I couldn’t take them off mid-run. Being too hot during a race is the worst!

  2. says

    They were kept when I was little, but now it’s so easy to delete them with all the technology that most get deleted as soon as 😀

  3. Rachel Costello says

    Yay! I am running in the Pasadena half too!! Well, I am doing the 10k this time.
    Ventura has a bunch of 1/2 marathons that I have signed up for. I am sure you already know this but they have a Gold Coast Series. There is a half in Sept Oct Dec (Santa to the sea) and the series ends with the Agoura Great Race! I am going to do them all!!!! Fun

    I did a Color Me Rad 5K yesterday and I saw a lot of people wearing tutu’s… It’s actually quite upsetting that so many people couldn’t find something more creative than the tutu look.
