On Tuesday, Thursday and Fridaymorning I take the kids to school wearing my running clothes. It saves me some time! I drop them off, and off I run.
Recently I read this post of a mom called Irene. She wrote 'sporty moms' make her feel guilty. And it made me think: 'Do the other moms at school get annoyed at the sight of me in my running clothes? Do I make them feel bad about themselves?'
Here's what Irene wrote: 'Seeing a sporty mom at school is a bad start of the day for me. Just seeing them in jazzpants, makes me feel guilty.'
She then writes how she got over her guilt when she realized these women tálk more than they work out. Whereas she, being a housewife, does a five miler every day just by doing the housework.
But I don't talk, I actually run. Four to five times a week. To keep myself healthy both physically, and mentally. Not running has become unthinkable. It would be like not brushing my teeth: it just doesn't feel right.
And so I take my kids to school in my running clothes. And I hope I inspire some other moms, instead of making them feel guilty.
How do you feel about moms wearing running clothes to school?
