Hey guys! The past couple of weeks have been INSANE at work and I completely forgot to post favorites this past Friday…whoops! Here’s what I’ve been loving the past couple of weeks.
1. Athleta Swagger Skort. I have been on a mission to find the perfect running skirt for about a year now. When Chrissy and I are at races, I’m constantly scouting the skirts and trying to find one I really like. I really wanted one that was girly in both the front and the back….something flirty and flippy. This skort is it!
I’ve been wearing it for a couple of weeks now and I’m in love! It is the perfect length and fit. It has a zipper back pocket and great little compression shorts underneath. The shorts have silicone on the inside edge so they don’t ride up…genius! I want to get this in a couple more colors!
2. Nike Dri-Fit Knit Tank. Last summer when we were in Chicago for our race, one of the reps at the Niketown store was really trying to sell me this tank. She claimed that the fabric was “AMAZING” and dried almost instantly. I was sold, until I saw the price tag. $65 for a tank?! I passed on it and have been thinking about it ever since. What exactly does $65 buy you in a tank?
I was actually planning to buy one at full price just to see, but Nike actually had a few on sale…so I bought 2. Let me tell you…that girl was right! After a long run where my hat is literally dripping with sweat, my shirt is still dry. It pulls the sweat away from your body and it evaporates, and man does it really keep you cool. You’ll basically see me wearing these two tanks all summer long in Atlanta….
3. Injinji Toe Socks. When I was marathon training, I was getting terrible blisters on the tip of my second toes. I turned to Twitter for advice and several runners recommended these socks. They took some getting used to, but now I almost exclusively wear these socks….and haven’t gotten blisters since! I need to get a few more pairs of these!
I hope everyone has a great holiday weekend! I’ll be wearing all three of these items up in Boston this weekend when I run the Boston Run to Remember 5 miler!! Do you have any race plans?
