I’ve been trying out the Seattle Tights and Seattle Shell these days. I’m a big believer that quality winter running gear makes the BIGGEST difference in your running/attitude/experience when the temps drop. I like to get just a few key pieces each winter that I know will keep me extremely warm and just wash them a bunch rather than getting a lot of cheap/not great quality pieces for my winter running. I do a lot of treadmill running in the winter but also a lot of outdoor running too and it gets COLD here so I am pretty picky about what tights/coats I will use but I am loving these ones so far.
These tights are my first pair of WATERPROOF tights!
You can see that they are waterproof on the areas that don’t need flexibility which is AWESOME when it comes to staying warm when running in bad conditions. The tights are super easy to move in and breathable which surprised me because of the waterproof material used. Other favorite parts of the pants—> a very thick and flat waistband with a drawcord (and two pockets… one of them waterproof) and the chafe-free seams (aka ridiculously comfortable). These will be worn on the majority of my outdoor runs this winter.
The jacket is their most technical jacket and it is windproof (hallelujah) and waterproof while at the same time also being very flexible and breathable. I love the way it fits (it gives some shape) while doing what I need it to do—> keep me warm and dry. There are plenty of pockets and vents and the hood can also be packed into the collar. I love the little pocket inside of the side pocket for your phone with the hole for your headphones with anchors to keep your cords in place. Added bonus is that it works as a running coat and also as a coat that I can wear all around town.
STAY WARM this winter. You will like running a whole lot more if you aren’t freezing over the next few months.
I am always beyond thrilled when Josse and I have matching schedules and we can meet up for a run. There is just something about getting to talk with one of your bfs while at the same time running.
It’s our day with Brookie’s friend so we hit up the kangaroo zoo for them to bounce around for a few hours.
I got my second workout in with the piggy back rides up the slide. My quads will burn.
I was more afraid of going down than Brooke.
I had a sweet potato and turkey burger for lunch and then snacked on these while they played… project turn as orange as I can (add in spray tanning too) is going really well.
Before I freak you out… that is a fake spider in the below picture. Brooke put it there and when the lights are off it legitimately looks like a monster spider. I actually screamed and my heart stopped when I went into the bathroom this morning and found it.
Brooke, you got me good. Just FYI when you are a teenager… I will be getting you back.
Just a few more hours to get your Donut tanks or t-shirts!!!!
What have you been snacking on today?
Parents reading—> what are some of your favorite activities to do with your little ones during the colder months?
In the winter—> do you stick to outdoor running only, add in some treadmill miles too or run solely on the treadmill?
How many miles did you get in today?
-Josse and I did 5 this morning!
