I Was Featured - AGAIN! Mankato Marathon

About two weeks ago, I mentioned that I was featured on for my wacky race day wardrobing. 

Just as that post was going up on my blog, Mankato Marathon posted this to their Facebook feed:

Hm.  Wear something gaudy day, you say?  I didn't know there was such a holiday.  This is just what I wore for a regular old race day in 2015.

Now I'm faced with a conundrum - how does one who's gaudy on normal occasions dress for a day specifically celebrating gaudy?!  Discuss below!


  1. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!! Here are a few ways to step up the gaudiness: 1) Wear dress socks with your sneakers, 2) Try to be more mismatched (e.g. a polka dot top with plaid bottoms), 3) Fit is everything, you gotta wear clothing that is either two sizes too small, or at least five sizes too big. If you can combine opposite nonsizing together, even better!

    1. All good suggestions! I'm imagining also those tacky shirts that make you look like you've got a hot bikini bod, or maybe the Borat monokini. Hahahahaha!
