Zensah sent me my new favoritest workout outfit.  I chose to wear it on my century yesterday because I loved it so much despite the fact that I was the only person without a cycling jersey.  Hot pink and fluerescent yellow trumps anything else in the world.

Below picture not staged, Billy was randomly hiding in the bushes taking pictures of me when I was finishing up a run.

Me likey the back and the fact that the top is tight in all the right places.  Please note I went as far as matching my ponytail holder with the shirt, thats how excited I was about the whole pink thing.

IMG 9797

I really love that the material is stretchy and the top is longer than most workout tops which is my favorite part.  Sorry, I do not enjoying wearing my shorts to my belly button to avoid having my short top showing my sweaty stomach.  No worrying about bending over either….I was covered up top and in the back.

Anyone have a bobby pin I could have?

Throughout my whole ride I never remembered having to adjust anything and I could focus on my WORKOUT rather than trying to adjust what I was wearing!

All three items (the compression shorts, the racerback tank and sports bra) are made out of the most comfortable material ever.  I have been converted to the sports bra especially.

Thanks Zensah!!! Now go check them out and get a sporty outfit because we all know that if you are reading this blog you spend more money on workout clothes than real people/work clothes.

Best quote ever: “we all know that if you are reading this blog you spend more money on workout clothes than real people/work clothes!!!”

YOU KNOW US!!

The best thing I ate today was mint oreos and candy corn! I can’t believe it! I rarely eat sweets. I just caved on a Sunday afternoon!!

I think have the most shorts. I’m going to need some capris/pants here pretty soon since winter is sneaking up! (boo)

I was totally going to ask you to post about where you get your running clothes…I need more! I may have to check out the Zensah ones…any other places you have that you get them from would be great. And do you have anywhere on your blog what bike/diaper shorts you have? (basically I wanna be just like you :) ) I hope you’ve had a fantastic day refueling and recovering from an awesome ride yesterday!

Love the pink and yellow!

I HATE short shirts, longer fit is definitely the best!

Reply

OH cute! I love that pairing together of yellow and pink! I would love to try it out because I love LOVE long work out shirts. I have a long torso, so most running tops don’t cut it for me! Literally :)

Love the outfit!

Reply

LONG! My tops have to be LONG! And I cannot workout without a sports bra, especially if I am running. I do not like to let my nungas roam free and wild in the wind, the girls must be strapped in. It’s a huge D for me.
I love the colour of that shirt!

Today I ran, went to Lowe’s, did laundry, took a nap, and painted some old chairs.

It’s funny you mention the long workout tops, I was adjusting mine every 2.5 seconds this morning on my run. I need something long but also not too tight. I have quite the hourglass shape and they always roll up if they are too hot. It’s a good look.

I think I have the most workout bottoms. And my fave food today was my leftover tortilla soup for lunch.

So if you ever need bobby pins, feel free to come to my house and take them. I inevitably have 900 on the floor in various rooms, so I keep buying more, and they are everywhere….

Reply

“if they are too hot” I meant tight. Can you tell I just woke up from my nap? Hahahah.

Reply

Get the TARGET tanks! I have the shirt-ridin problem too (yay hips!) but these ones have the perfect amount of stretch in them.

Reply

Thank you!! I will have to check those out :)

Reply

I am glad it matched your ponytail! That definetly pulled the outift all together :) Haha I loved this post!

Today me and the fam headed to a Country Fall Fair where they had pig and potato sack races. A race-filled weekend (had my half-marathon yesterday)! I wanted to race the kids in potato sacks but no adults allowed. Worst rule ever!

I want my workout shirts to me LONG and not too tight around my lower shoulder/underarm area. Best/cheapest tanks are at TARGET for $9 and as long as you hang them to dry they last forever, even through crazy daily sweat sessions!

I second Corrie Anne’s comment! I never have anything to wear when I need a “normal” outfit. Why can’t I just show up everywhere in my Under Armour/Lulu gear?

The best thing I ate today was a PB&J sandwich. They will never, ever, ever get old.

I own a million tank tops and I thoroughly enjoy soaking them in sweat each and every day :) :)

So proud of you and your CENTURY! PINK is so your colour :)

Reply

man, that Zensah tank is on my list of running gear I WANT so bad but can’t justify forking out the money for! I love long running shirts- so many of them are tight and short… not exactly what a lady who has birthed 5 babies is looking for ;).
The husband made his wonderful waffles for dinner after church. SO, so yum.

Reply

Awesome workout clothes! Any workout attire that you don’t have to adjust a million times is a keeper. And once again, CONGRATULATIONS on your race, you AMAZE me!

Today, I layed around in bed until 1pm, yes, that late. I read blogs and ate breakfast (in bed, ha) and then did homework for a few hours (in bed, ha). I swear, I don’t spend my whole life in bed, today was the exception. Or was it? :)

Oh and the best thing I ate today? Leftover lasagna:)

Reply

Ooh, I’ve been looking for some new raceback tanks so I’ll have to check those out! I’m the opposite… I have a trillion sports bras but not enough shorts/pants.

The best thing I ate today was: a double fiber english muffin with a scrambled egg + one egg white, a piece of cheese, 2 slices of turkey and a smear of orange pineapple jam. Mmmhmm!

Reply

I love the outfit. Anything hot pink is awesome!!

Reply

Great job on your ride yesterday!!!
Today was a long ride, and family lunch.
I love long tops, I wish more companies made them longer.
I have a ton of bottoms too, I need more tops.
Best thing I ate so far today was chocolate Costco cake. It was quite tasty for a store bought cake.

Reply

I so agree about long workout tops!
I have an amazing one from Nike that I love because it has huge arm-holes so no chafing….but it rides up so often! I always have to keep tugging it down. And since I’m basically a professional, I carry my phone (which plays my music) in a sock to keep my sweating from ruining it, so sometimes I tug my shirt and drop my phone and its a whole big mess.

Reply

AND the best thing I ate was instant oatmeal + almond butter + chocolate chips.

Reply

Spent the day going to church, running a few errands and watching football. I definitely require my tops to be long. I also prefer that my running shorts don’t ride up, especially since I have wide hips. Probably why I wear more pants and compression shorts to avoid that problem. I have a lot of sports bras, pants and running shorts. I would like to get some more long sleeve tops. Tonight I had cajun shrimp pasta and a coconut cream cupcake for dessert. Yum!

Reply

I totally have the most sports bras because it is my hubby’s way of giving me underwear, but me considering it better than lingerie. seriously for little surprises he gets me one. Last one was pink and white camo.

Best thing I ate today was PIZZA.

Church, baking pumpkin bread, Football at a friends, papers to grade.

Reply

soo much better than a cycling jersey!!! I’m a sports bra freak and very picky, but I think I’ll have to check out zensah after your review!

My workout top requirement…I dunno. to be honest I’m a sports bra runner…I wait till it’s like 40 degrees before I put a shirt on hah. I usually just wear beaters to the gym…so I like things that are tight and don’t brush up against me and don’t have sleeves lol!

My sunday was a rest day too! I’m watching football game #3 and eating muffin #30 at the moment!

Reply

I have a gazillion tanks. I had wearing short sleeves, they always make me feel hot and gross so even in the dead of winter, tanks it is!

Reply

So cute! I like my tops long too; long, light and not too tight :)

I love Zensah. I have their compression sleeves. They saved my poor shins last year. I know everyone is all about CEP, which are great, but Zensah’s were less expensive and I’ve really enjoyed them.

Reply

Congrats on your race, girl!!! Me and hubby just finished a 10k yesterday (I’ll be posting about it later this week). Not quite the same as your kick-butt race, but hey, I’ll take it! ;)

And the best thing I ate today was a candy cookie from Panera … a big, soft sugar cookie with M&Ms in it. Yum!!

Reply

Whatever….. Girl that is awesome! Congrats and I can’t wait to hear all about it!

Reply

Workout tops must be sleeveless.
I have a boatload of workout tops but not very many pairs of shorts.
Sunday – football, church, more football. Heaven.

Reply

Seriously?! When will I be cool like you and have big companies wanting me to wear their clothes? ;)

I think I might order one if their ankle sleeves. :)

Date soon? ??

Reply

I LOVE long tanks too!! I just went to their website & I am about to order one. Did you know that they have purple too!? I knew you would appreciate that. :)

Reply

Let’s both get purple and be twinners…..pretty please!

Reply

oh yea! i would gladly have a wardrobe of 100% lululemon! as it is, i live in running gear pretty much 24/7! just too comfy!
loved reading your century recap – the sweetest is that billy came out to surprise you.

Reply

cute outfit! My workout tanks have to be long too! It’s a must!

Reply

I love long tops too!! I hate when I’m not comfortable in my workout clothes and have to constantly readjust everything. It totally takes my focus off my workout. I have a lot of everything when it comes to workout clothes. I don’t even have room for them anymore. If I had to buy more of something it would probably be bottoms. I feel like I can never have enough!

Reply

LOVE that top and that it is long! I also hate when tanks say they have a built in bra but they definitely aren’t enough for anyone! Then they are almost to tight to fit the sports bra underneath and you look like you have arm pit fat :(

Reply

love love the outfit! must have it now!!!
congrats on your ride! you deserve a good relaxing day! :)

Reply

I LOVE that tank. I have it in purple, but want it in every color!

My sunday was church, hiking, baking, and movies :)

Reply

love the colors…will have to go check out that site…
Your adorable…i am going to the us this week and looked over my workout clothes, because they are SO expensive here and i have a ton of tops and am in need of shorts bigtime!

xoxo from Trinidad

Reply

I am so extremely proud of you :D as stated on the previous post – LOVED the outfit choice ;) you are seriously the coolest chick I’ve never met <3 xox

Reply

Those colors look so good, I bet you were one pretty blur yesterday!

I have more socks than anything. Everything ekes I have just over a weeks worth of…to make me do laundry and I have a strict budget

Reply

I concur with Stephanie – love those colors!

I spent my Sunday participating a race for the cure with my best friend at Mizzou, eating silly amounts of food at the only vegan restaurant in Columbia, and then driving back to St. Louis while counting cows on highway-side farms!

Reply

Since I know you’re a Costco lover too, have you bought their running tanks? The Kirkland brand tanks, not joking here, are my absolute favorite tops. I bought one and then went back a bought it in every other color. They are super long and fit a little looser at the bottom so they don’t ride up either. Bonus that they are only $12ish.

Reply

NOOOO…you have totally inspired me to now. TWELVE BUCKS, that is AWESOME! Thanks Abby!

Reply

I love that top!! I like longer workout tops, but not so long they feel like you’re wearing a dress when they get sweaty/heavy. I also like them to not be cut too low around the armpits…I hate side boob when I’m running!

Reply

cute top!!! :)

ive spent my sunday sleeping, eating, watching football and sleeping! good sunday overall. maybe slightly productive? :)

i def need my workout top to be LONG! there is nothing i hate more then short workout tops. if something can completely cover my stomach, thennnn we are in business!

I have ALOT of workout pants/shorts. i am lacking in the workout tops department :(

best thing ive eaten today is a buffalo chicken dip that i made for my boys today, soooo good! and gave me an excuse to eat fritos…omg! :D

Reply

Hey! Nice nice nice job on that century. Way to power through – you’re such a talented athlete :).

I love the outfit but one question! Do you ever wear the padded butt shorts like me? haha…they look ridiculous but seriously make biking SO comfortable :).

Reply

Oh yeah! I am all about the padded bike shorts….they make life so much happier on the bike!

Reply

My criteria is the same- LONG tops…and it can’t be skin tight…..homegirl gotta breathe :)! Best thing i ate on Sunday was a toss up between freshly baked choc chip cookies and the big bowl of cereal with berries and vanilla yogurt before bed–> what is it about cereal that is oh so delicious?? And yes I went back for 2nds ;)!

Reply

That third pic of you is SO cute!

I have more shorts than anything else too – I’m a weird shape ‘up top’ (i.e I have more pecs than boobs…) so finding a sports bra to fit is a nightmare.

Best thing I ate yesterday (today?) were two HUGE sweet potatoes with oodles of coconut butter (and a side of ketchup, but of course).

<3

I love that your Sunday begins with church. Your faith must be a big part of the happy positive person we look forward to reading. Church, grocery store, nap, TV

Reply

Girl, you need to try peaches and honey bunches of oats combo! that is my new addiction and the best thing I have eaten today. SO good! And I’m lovin the pink and yellow combo!

I have way too many shorts and only about 2 shirts that I actually work out in because I’m very particular about my shirt being light weight and breathable. Those are my requirements!

Reply

I’m with you on the long tops…I’ll never be one of those women who only wears a sports bra to workout. My mind just instantly goes to wondering whether people are staring at my awesome abs…distracting. ;)

Reply

You look so adorable!! I love it!!

I have WAY too many tops! Throw in race shirts and it is WAY over the top!

Have a great week, friend! :)

Reply

I like my tops long too – I always go to Oakley for mine, because they generally fit pretty long and also because I’m a girl and I like their choice in colors (!). They did a range of yellow ones this spring/summer. I could not choose so got two.

Best thing I’ve eaten today would have to be fresh oranges and fresh figs. I pick all day usually and a proper meal comes around 8pm.

Reply

Congrats on your century, that’s amazing!! I just started to get into riding, and I’m hoping to do a century this March!! Any tips on training?! Oh, and what type of bike do you have? I’m looking for a new one and I’m getting super overwhelmed! Congrats again on your awesome accomplishment :) and I am beyond jealous of that sunday buffet!

Reply

So so so so excited for you!!!! My bike is specialized and I love it! My biggest tips is to eat a lot during your long rides! I basically just built up my mileage to 70 and I knew if I could do that I definitely could do 100!!! You are going to love it!!!!

Reply

Janae you are super cute and I bet were the CUTEST in the Century!! Loving the pink + yellow combo

How have you spent your Sunday?
Ran my first 5k :) 80% humidity and I swear it was almost entirely up hill.. but I never stopped and finished in 28:54 which I shall stand behind :)

What is a requirement for you with workout tops?
Does not show that squishy fat between your armpit and your boob… I hate when ppl look like stuffed sausages in their tops haha

What is the best thing that you have eaten today?
Yesterday I got a brownie sundae to celebrate the race :)

Reply

Ahhhhh congrats on your crazy hard 5k and amazing time!!! Brownie sundaes are the best….. I need to eat those more often!

Reply

I put that tank on my wishlist when i saw it on skinnyrunner’s blog… now i’m gonna have to get the sports bra too ;)

Reply

I’m looking to get a new pair of compression shorts. For running, do you like the Zensah shorts or the Aspaeris shorts better?

Reply

I love the longer tops too. I hate when they are too high and I feel like everything’s on display. I’m going to be a sweaty mess, so why draw more attention to myself?

I don’t have enough running capris. Laundry is my most hated activity (after cleaning toilets) and I don’t like having to do it so often to make sure I have bottoms to run in.

Reply

You are a destined fitness model! I just received their racer back tank and am in love with the fit and feel…plus it looks good, so that’s a positive. You know your readers well—I always invest more time and $$ into my workout clothes!

Reply

I definitely love me some workout clothes. I finally went and splurged this weekend at Lululemon. So far, i’m thinking my purchase was totally worth it. Make sure you stop by my blog today for my first giveaway. It’s a good one. Happy Monday!

Reply

That tank is super cute! I love the pink!
And I need more sports bars too!
Sunday was spent lounging around and having dinner with some friends from Oregon :-)

Reply

Congrats on your century! That is amazing and I love the pink+yellow combo!

Sunday was spent recovering from Ragnar and registering for my first marathon!
I can’t wait!

Reply

Pink is so my favorite color. I love putting yellow with pink. I will be checking this site out. I am a little OCD about my pony tail holders always matching my outfit.

Reply

I like my workout tops long too! I am funny about my waistband or stomach showing, it should not happen!
I ate some candy corn today, it’s time for Halloween!

Reply

Love, love, love that bra and top and the color combo!!! :) And an awesome job for the CENTURY!

Best Sunday meal was home made pumpkin soup with pumpkin seed oil. Pumpkin + pumpkin = heaven on Earth. I am training for my first marathon and getting crazy from the amounts of food my body requires :) Totally understand you, hope you are planning that trip to Europe for next year ;)

Reply

Loving the pink.
Super cute.

I tried clicking the link to the “best sports bra” in your “gear” page, and the link is broken! I’m in serious need of a new sports bra (or 5), and I’m wondering what you think the best one is!
