30 Day Running Challenge: Day 11

What kind of clothes do you run in? Actual running clothes or old t-shirts? Show us a picture!

I now have actually performance gear that I wear.  I LOVE workout clothes, and would live in ADIDAS, Lulu, Nike… you name it, clothes if I could (even though I love fashion.  It is like my Gemini twins doing battle again.  One is a fashionista, the other is a little more low key).

It has taken me a long time to get here though.  It used to be that any old tee-shirt and pair of short would do. Now that I am logging way more miles, comfort is key…and matching always helps :).

Here is a picture of me and my beautiful friend, Jess, post Warrior Dash last year.  I am in Nike shorts and an Alo Performance tank top. (I’m on the right… and it just took everything in my power to not simply say, “I’m the big one”).


30 Day Running Challenge: Day 8

Show us a picture of your running shoes! What are they and why do you like them?

Well this picture is huge… and for some reason my computer wont let me edit it down…that’s what I get for having a 6 year old laptop.. but he still works so I’ll quit my bitchin’.

This is me and my running shoes.  Now, remember that I work at a gym, so this is the footwear of my profession, and also am part of a shoe tester program where I get new shoes to try out and review (it is awesome!)

The 3 pairs in back are trail shoes, and I wear those when running hills on, well, trails.

The white pair in the middle is the pair of Pumas that I wore during the Chicago Marathon, and they were light and wonderful!

Now, I pretty much switch between the blue Puma pair that I am wearing and the purple Asics that are closest to me.  I love them because they are both neutral shoes (I have a medium arch with a very neutral step), and they are very light with a flexible body.

I used to be OBSESSED with ADIDAS Supernova Glides.  I bought them 3 years in a row, and only strayed because I was getting new shoes to test.  Pumas have treated me very well, but I will always be devoted to ADIDAS.  They have never let me down.

Can you tell that I just kick my shoes off when I get home?  I just noticed that they are all still tied…

Happy running!
