Oh my goodness has the weather been great these past few days! It has been sunny and beautiful and has just made me beyond happy. Well, today is the first official day of spring, so I guess the good weather came about just in time! As most of you know, I am training for a half marathon in April. It is less than a month away at this point, and I am freaking out. I ran 8 miles (yes, all at one time) this past week and I was actually fine, but all I kept thinking was that in the race I was going to have to run 5.1 more miles after that. I think I’ll be fine, I have been training hard, but I still have a little anxiety that I’m going to trip and fall, break my leg, or stop breathing at some point in those 13.1 miles.
One thing that has really helped me through this whole process is my work out gear. Yes, I know it’s girlie and silly, but the thought of getting new clothes, whether it’s for fun or running, just makes me happy. So, when Lorna Jane contacted me about trying their new Uniquely Lorna Jane line, I just about peed myself. (Another fear for race day…I am going to have to pee in that 13.1 miles I just know it!) The line is so much fun and all of the items are so versatile you could wear them out running or at the gym and then cross them over into your other activities.
Get The Look:
Amy 3/4 Tights: c/o Lorna Jane, Reflect Active Jacket: c/o Lorna Jane, Seamless Tank Top: bebe sport, Shoes: New Balance from DSW, Water Bottle: Camelbak from Amazon, Sunglasses: Aldo, Headband: Hobby Lobby, Infinity Necklace: Christmas gift from Wes
The Amy 3/4 tights are my favorite. They aren’t full tights so I can wear them all through the year! I can’t do shorts when running long distances, I don’t have this “thigh gap” everyone keeps talking about and running 8 miles with your thighs touching…not cool. Capris like these are the only way to go for me, and this one even has a handy little pocket to put your money, keys, ID, anything you could want in.
The reflect active jacket is perfect for running on those cooler brisk mornings, or a weekend like last one where we had 20mph winds! It breaks the wind and you don’t feel one ounce of the chill, yet it’s not so heavy that you sweat in it. I also love that it’s reflective! Now with daylight savings time its darker in the mornings and the cars will be able to see you a mile away in this baby! This jacket could also be used for a casual outing with your girlfriends or lunch with the hubby . It’s the perfect add on to give a plain white t shirt a little extra oomph.
