Running was and is a big part of my life and my family's life. The majority of our family vacations the last 10 years have revolved around cross country and track meets.

How does this relate to a personal style post you ask? Well, my teammates and I were pretty competitive and wanted to be as fast as our abilities allowed, and would say that we wanted to be "cheetah fast", thus we bought every running related item in sight that had what looked to be cheetah print on it: ribbons, hair ties, socks, shorts, you name it we bought it.

This was when leopard was coming back as a popular print and what we took as cheetah was really leopard, but we weren't too technical about it :)

Those days of being The Cheetah Girls (yes, we really did call ourselves that....) are long gone, but my love for all things leopard/cheetah has not left, which is why I had to have this coat as soon as I saw it. Also, I'm excited to announce I will be running the Boston Marathon this spring (eeek!), so I may have to bust out the all cheetah look again. Maybe my Cheetah Girl days aren't behind me after all :)
