I've been thinking a lot lately about how to make running long distances and going out on races alone more fun. The first thing that came to my mind was a tutu!  Of course the modern day ballerina tutu seemed a bit stiff and too fluffy for the feel I wanted for my run.  After doing some searching I found Tough Girl Tutus.  Just the name of it made me happy!  To my delight it was what I was looking for ... A running tutu for a tough enough woman, just like myself  ( okay okay so I am not completely tough but to be able to run I consider that awesome).  The creator and founder, Alexia, of tough girl tutus is a marathoner who ran the NYC marathon in a tutu.
"Perfect for teams, races, events and even your every day run, Tough Girl Tutus put the flounce back into running and the fun into every step." -Alexia, creator of Tough Girl Tutus
Trying on this tutu I got an instant boost of FUN energy.   I found that the length was perfect. The top has a wide black band that is stretchy so I felt I could move and still wear my matching hydration belt.  There is a quick and easy way to put on your racing bib so you don't have to worry about safety pins. The hot pink color is awesome.  I felt faster running around in my yard.   There is an extra bounce in my step, as you can tell from the pictures below, and here is one really silly picture that you will just have to click and see.
