The first time she went for a run, Christine Bibbo Herr wore a pair of wide-leg jeans.
Christine Bibbo Herr was always active, but she started running 15 years ago when her now husband bought her a pair of running shoes and invited her for a jog. When he came to pick Bibbo Herr up, the Manhattanite stepped out of her apartment wearing her new sneakers, a cotton hoodie and a pair of wide-leg jeans. She remembers, “He looked at me and said, ‘What are you wearing? Get those jeans off.’”
The self-proclaimed urban-fitness girl has come a long way since her Levi-wearing days. Over the course of the last decade and a half, Bibbo Herr cultivated a career as a fashion editor for numerous publications and completed the New York City Marathon—with an impressive 3:47! She now serves as a fashion, fitness and beauty blogger for her own site, NYC Pretty, and is currently training for a half marathon this spring.
Running-wear philosophy: Comfort first—with lots of color.
