I realize we're all blogging gurus, and feel the need to capture a lot of (sometimes insignificant) pics on our running adventures (selfies, anyone?). Do you also feel compelled to lay out your race outfit the day (or evening) before said race? Or even for an especially significant training run (I'm looking at you, Mr. 20-Miler)?
Yes? No? Maybe so???
Well, I unashamedly admit to doing it. Care to hear the whys behind the madness?
**It's a great opportunity to play with color.
In case you cannot tell, I have a small obsession with color. I also have an artsy-fartsy brain, which means I can visualize how certain colors are going to play with (or against) each other. That said, setting everything out allows me to confirm all the colors are a go without the stress of doing it last-minute in a dark, early morning bedroom.

What do you think? Have you ever laid out your racing gear the night before a race? Any tips you'd share?
