Fashion faux pas Friday: jogging through a photo shoot
Now I know a few joggers and I think that they’re nice, conscientious people. But there’s always a few who just ruin it for everyone, aren’t there?
I do get annoyed when I’m strolling casually on a sidewalk and all of a sudden comes a jogger roaring by, dodging fellow pedestrians, dogs, strollers, and just lazy Starbucks café’d window shoppers. Sure, we all share the sidewalk, but there are always countless running trails and quiet streets within inches of where we’re at.
Is there such a thing as the Entitled Jogger personality? I always end up thinking that there’s a kind of “Look at me! I’m jogging! I’m so fit! I don’t care you’re enjoying your whipped cream caramel mocha on a sunny day! I’m not! Move!” vibe.
For me, the ones that take the cake are the bold rush hour joggers who dash around the financial district downtown while all the suits are rushing to grab a sushi tray to go. Seriously!?
So I had to share this photo of a Victoria’s Secret photo shoot-in-the-making on the Brooklyn Bridge yesterday, where model Elsa Hosk is posing with balloons for the neighbourhood’s launch of its very own PINK store. And there you have in the background some joggers who, unlike other ones, stumbled upon the shoot and decided that no, they wouldn’t alter their route for the day, but rather would just go on through the shoot. If variety is the spice of life, this is what we’d call a no spice day. Hey joggers- maybe you think you’re really, really fast. (see pic).
