I’m a marathon runner and I always run in dresses. I started running four years ago, and it was important to still be myself– I never wear pants, so I started wearing dresses to work out.
I’ve completed five marathons in dresses and qualified for Boston (will run it in April this year, very excited). I’m happy to ignore rules about what you should wear to be athletic, and inspire others who might not consider themselves traditional athletes.
I write about it on Sweedish Elle’s blog: “Sofia springer” (Sophia runs!)
