Matchy-Matchy Workout Clothes

by - Wednesday, March 30, 2011

When I was still working with my personal trainer, he used to tease me that my workout clothes were always matchy-matchy.

Typical gym outfit. Blue Under Armour top matches blue in tights, matches blue headband.

(Side note: These Under Armour capris are fairly new and I'm pretty much in love with them.)

What can I say? I like my workout clothes to look cute and coordinated when I'll be working out around other people.

In the mornings when I run by myself, sometimes that matchy-matchy goes right out the door, especially in the summer. At that point I'm just looking for a clean pair of shorts and a clean sports bra. Although since most of my shorts are black, I guess I technically match by default.

Come race morning though, I'm absolutely neurotic about having a cute outfit. I mean, hello, there are going to be cameras taking my picture. And while I will probably look like hell in most of them, the least I can do is make my outfit match.

Who says workout outfits can't be cute and functional?

So do you workout in matchy-matchy outfits or do you just grab whatever's clean?
