The tutu isn’t just for ballerinas anymore. Once seen strictly on center stage, you’re now just as likely to see this graceful skirt cross a finish line at a foot race. Soft layers, lots of bounce, and just enough sass to make an impression, the tutu is part of the RAD running revolution. Here are 4 reasons why we love the tutu.
1.) It’s comfortable.
There’s nothing restrictive about a tutu. It moves with you, creating its own dance with each step.
2.) You get to play dress up.
Remember when you were 4 years old and you had an entire box dedicated to nothing but dress-up clothes? Grandma’s hand-me-downs, a few pairs of heels, and some plastic purses were always tossed to the side for a pretty tutu, a crown, or a long wig. Running at Color Me Rad is the perfect opportunity to let loose and pull your favorite dress-up item, the tutu, out of the box.
3.) It makes people smile.
In a world of dark spandex, the tutu is a bright spot amongst runners. Give it a try. Layer a tutu on top of whatever you’re wearing and see how many frowns turn upside down. There is some kind of whimsy in all those layers. Plus, the pictures you take in tutus are #srslysocute
4.) It’s fun.
Very few clothing items are classified as “fun.” Pants? Boring. Shirts? Yawn. But the tutu screams fun. In fact, runners wearing tutus are oftenscreaming, “This is fun!” louder than anyone else. Tutus equal fun. It might not be a mathematical fact, but it probably should be.
