Lately I’ve been sporting the PureProject Jacket II.
Two things are extremely important to me when it comes to workout clothes:
1. Function. Does the piece of clothing do what I want it to do? Does it keep me warm? Does it move well? Is it comfortable? Does it keep me dry? Reflective? Etc.
2. Does it make me look cool when I wear it for the rest of the day? I generally don’t get ready for the day until about 9 hours after finishing my work out. Is it something that I love to wear outside of just running?
This jacket answers both of my questions with a big yes.
I love the stretch material which makes it extremely flexible (especially in the shoulders of the jacket) and easy to run in. It is a super light jacket yet keeps me pretty darn warm (it is also water-proof and wind-proof). I personally think it looks awesome and it has little details (like the petal hems in the front) on it that make it unique to running jackets. It is great for winterish running with an awesome base layer underneath and I think it will be perfect for ‘kind of cold’ spring mornings with just a tank under.
PS try to look away from my hair, I don’t remember the last time that I had brushed it before these photos.
I love the petal hems in the back too!
I’d like to thank my mother for always being so willing to take 45 pictures of me whenever I want to show you guys something. Her photography skills are legit.
Running clothes > real people clothes.
My bday is tomorrow and so I want to do my long run on my bday instead of on Saturday so I didn’t run today to get ready for tomorrow. Instead I taught a spin class and it was still a killer workout.
Lots of sprints, hill climbs, jumps and dancing:)
After spin Brookers and I went to my absolute favorite running trail.
On Tuesday during my speed workout I took off my long sleeve shirt and gloves and hid them under a bunch of leaves because I was overheating. I forgot to pick them up yesterday so we went there today. No joke… Brooke probably ran .75 miles on the path.
She has great form in my opinion.
And then we went and got our nails done for my bday eve (yes, I stretch my bday out for way too long).
Her first time and she did pretty awesome.
For Valentine’s Day… would you rather get:
-A box of chocolates
-Lots of red gummy candy (swedish fish, red gummy bears, cinnamon bears etc)
-All of the above
For a Valentine’s Day Date… would you rather:
-Go to a fancy restaurant.
-Get take-out and watch a movie at home.
-Go do something active like a run, hike, air hockey competition etc.
-Go to a movie and get froyo afterwards.
Is anyone else still in their workout clothes right now besides just me (it would help me feel a little bit better to know that I am not alone)!?
What songs did you listen to on your last workout?!
