"Don't let the fat chick beat you"?

I have been racing for about 5 years now. I am not a typical runner or even triathlete. I fight with serious medical conditions every step of the way, but each step makes me stronger. I have two boys both with special needs and I have learned to chalk that up to making me stronger as well.

It is with sad heart that I must report that lupus has won the battle this year, but trust me when I say the war is far from over! My racing days are not over by any stretch of the imagination. This is just a minor setback that will make me stronger.

I am back!

I have now put 7 miles under my belt for the week so far and I feel great! The last two weeks kicked my butt and for once I actually listened to my body! I made it to the treadmill yesterday and got 3 miles in, today I managed to get 4 in on the elliptical machine; I was very careful not to use the handle things!
I have seventy odd days until race weekend and I am now thinking about what to wear! I have fallen madly in love with my CW-X tights, no matter what I wear I always have them on underneath! Since this will be a race weekend (not just a one race thing) I will be making sure my legs get all the support possible! With that said, the question is what to wear over the top! Trust me, me in just running tights – not a pretty site (I did do that once, and yea, never again!). I am a fan of running skirts, sadly SkirtSports’ skirts don’t work right on me (if they fit my thighs, the waste falls down!). I have been considering giving Running Skirts a shot (I love their purple plaid skirt). I have found a few shirts I will probably get for that weekend. I would love some input on Running Skirts products.
Tonight I go pick up my car from the garage (it died last night while I was trying to leave work!), then off to class and then home zzzzzzzz!
