I love feeling my best when I hit the pavement for a long run and since I’ve been signing up for more races this Summer, I decided to buy myself some athletic gear that I knew would be a smart investment on my body and my mind. When I meet a fitness goal, I allow myself to buy another item. Here are my top four just recently purchased finds!
1) Nike Free Run+ 3: I am crazy about coral so these caught my eye instantly! I’ve always been a Nike supporter and my old running shoes were way over their limit on miles. I stopped at FrontRunner on Lane Ave in Columbus and picked up these babies and have been very pleased with the comfort so far.
2) Lululemon Pace Setter Skirt: I am bananas about Lululemon. I could spend hours in there analyzing the entire brand – it’s beautiful. The women that work there are the most friendly I’ve ever seen in an athletic apparel store or retail in general, for that matter. My favorite new thing is the running skirt. It’s breezy but has the undershort that fits perfectly and even has a little zip pocket at the top that I barely notice. I was told to try it out for my first race so I picked up the white one before I ran a quarter marathon and absolutely loved it. I want to run in skirts all day.
3) VSX Sport cross front tanks and sports bra: These bras are amazing to workout in. The support and material are perfect for running, spinning, yoga, weight lifting, etc. They are also mega-hot!
4) Lululemon Speed Short: Not only do Lululemon’s running skirts kick ass but also these adorably short speed shorts. I’ve tried many different bottoms to run in and never really found the perfect fit until I came across these pretty little shorts. I’d say they are the most comfortable shorts I’ve ever worn. Ever. The price is high but they are totally worth it.
It makes me feel great when I meet my goals and treat myself to sexy sports attire. What do you do to treat yourself? What are your favorite fitness brands and workout clothing?
