I should be clear here...I know it's important to do runs at different paces, but I'm not exactly there yet. I pretty much go out there and just try to survive. So none of this was intentional- except for the 2 mile run on Sunday with Corey (who's still working to get to my
And this leads to a fun topic- the importance of clothes! When it's hot outside, sweat-wicking clothes that don't hang on you and get heavy when it's hot out are essential. Here are some of my current faves:
C9 by Champion Women's Seamless Babydoll Tank: cute, comfortable, wicking fabric, and only $19.99. Awesome.
Lululemon Run:Swiftly Tech Tee: This one is superb: thin, flattering and the perfect length. I bit the bullet and bought it in red as a treat for myself for my half marathon. What's bad about it? It's really freaking expensive: $58 for a running shirt. Yep. Don't even try on Lululemon unless you're prepared to get addicted.
Champion Seamless Empire Long Top: Also cheap and super-cute. Doubles as a yoga top for me. Plus Skinny Runner wears them and she's like a running superhero, right?
Nike Tempo Track Women's Running Shorts: Does anyone NOT have these? I was thrilled recently to find some for $14 at TJ Maxx!
Gap Body Fit Ruched Running Shorts: Just see the reviews- people love them. Plus you can adjust the sides to make them tighter/shorter or looser/longer. Even better, I think I got them for about $10. Gap has fantastic sales.
So there you go- a few things that I'm loving to help get me through this hot weather. And call me superficial (go ahead, do it) but having cute workout clothes actually does motivate me to work out. So I have to say I think it's worth investing in a few things that get you out there and moving!
One more thing on a serious note- be careful out there. The heat can be scary.
