1. Moving Comfort Rebound Racer
With sports bras, I like to try them on to make sure they actually fit. It's amazing how different the same brand, but another style can fit totally different.
Our REI carries moving comfort so I went there to try on sizes and styles before selecting this one in charcoal heather.
What I like about this bra: high support (the girls aren't going anywhere), adjustable straps, sweat wicking, attractive, fits well.
Downfalls: I can't think of any.
I don't know about you, but sports bras are one of those things I KNOW I need, but hate to replace. I mean, $56 for a stinking sports bra that no one sees! But, good support is important to me, so I shell out the $$.
2. Lululemon Bright at Night shorts
I was in the market for a pair of plain black running shorts and bought these in Chicago when we visited Pete's family. His brother and wife live just a block or two away from lulu - dangerous!
At first, they felt a bit restrictive, but after a few runs, they felt perfect.
What I love about them: wide waistband, adorable ruffles, two zip pockets w/ reflective tape, perfect length (not too short)
Downfalls: As a distance runner, they could use a zip pocket in the pack to hold gu or heavier items. The zips on the side are great for a key or an empty wrapper, but feel a bit heavy with actual fuel in them.
It's likely I get far too excited about my new running gear, but when you spend so much time in sweat wicking attire, you might as well feel comfy, confident and cool in it! Plus, you don't HAVE to buy a ton of it if you have a few quality pieces.
Have you made any exciting purchases lately? I think this needs to be the fall I finally buy a pair of riding boots...
P.S. I finally took a rest day yesterday. The body was telling me it was time. I gave in and reminded myself that with rest comes strength.
