Personally, I think Anne Hathaway’s fashion sense is admirable. Her classic style never fails to turn heads whenever she struts down the red carpet. However, just a few days ago, she was caught wearing something that may just turn heads for all the wrong reasons – a pair of spandex leggings with galaxy print topped off with a pair of trainers and a plain denim button-down shirt. For someone of Anne’s caliber, it appeared to be a poor outfit choice. Are printed leggings so bad? Actually, printed leggings do seem like a bad choice whether you’re a celebrity or not. Printed tops are cool; you can match a printed top with any type of bottoms (pants, skirts, shorts, skorts, and leggings) ...

If Michael Jackson were alive today, he’d probably be singing to Beat It while doing his morning 3k run. Although images of him occasionally holding his crotch while sprinting may not exactly be too appealing, any serious runner would do well to follow his example- not so much the crotch-holding, but the part on using music to fuel your run. Just like a soldier marching to cadence, listening to music while running does benefit the runner. For one, music puts one in the mood to be physically active.
