Last week I participated in my first mud run {I shared behind the scenes action on Snapchat. Follow @PatriceJWill} and it was definitely an interesting experience. I’ve always wanted to do a physical challenge with obstacle courses {kinda like an adult Double Dare with mud!} and I’m so glad I did. During the Dirty Girl Mud Run, we ran 3.1 miles and challenges included climbing walls, ropes, mud pits, etc.

But the week before the race I was frantically trying to figure out what I would wear. If you’ve ever wanted to do a mud run or any type of outdoor physical course that requires getting down and dirty, here are a few tips on the do’s and don’ts of what to wear.

affordable activewear, JCPenney activewear Though I enjoy a good workout and love an early morning run, I tend to fall off at times when it comes to consistently working out. But I absolutely jumped at the chance when I was invited to the New Year, New You event by JCPenney. Dancing with the Stars champ Karina Smirnoff would be on hand leading a dance class, so I knew I had to attend.
But besides the opportunity to be whipped in to shape by a DWTS pro, I loved the JCPenney Xersion and CityStreets activewear lines. They’re chic {you won’t be embarrassed to be seen in these gym clothes!} and super affordable.

I hate sneakers, I really do. They just don’t fit with my ultra girly style at all.

Luckily, the market is full of functional (tons of support, breathable material, etc) and fashionable tennis shoes for the gal who wants to look fly while working out. They’re even cute enough to wear long after your work out is over.

Give the stilettos a rest and check out the cute running shoes below, all under $150.
