I am a complete believer in treating yourself from time to time, and find it most appropriate on birthdays (both half and whole,) Valentine's Day & any other day that means something significant to you!
When I decided that I wanted to run the Cooper River Bridge Run in Charleston, SC (and it happened to be remotely close to Valentine's Day,) I thought this would be the perfect little gift to myself!
I immediately started working on it! Though I did have to get a few things in order, like having someone to go with/a place to stay (Yay, Marcia!) and getting the a-okay for missing work and school, everything fell right into place. Yesterday, I decided to go for it and sign up for the race. It was super easy and took just a few minutes.
I also picked out my outfit! Remember that Ke$ha tank that I thought about buying for my Disney trip in a few weeks? For this occasion, I couldn't resist it!
I decided to pair it with a pair of Victoria's Secret Knockout Capris in bubble gum pink with black polka dots. I've never had a pair of these, but I'm excited to give them a try! Here they are in black with white polka dots.
I'm fairly sure this will be my favorite running outfit yet!
Though I support rewarding yourself anyway, this treat is extra sweet because it's also good for me. I do have to run six miles and get over a bridge after all! The fact that it's in Charleston, and that I'll
probably do quite a bit of shopping and excellent eating is just an added bonus!
How do you plan to treat yourself this Valentine's Day?

As always, Have a Sweet Day!
