AERO Active – Hot Pink!

I don’t know about you but I LOVE sweats. I mean, I LOVE them!  The minute I get home from work, I change into something more comfy.  I probably own over 30 pair of sweats and I refuse to get rid of any of them!  (Thank goodness my hubby still loves me!)  There’s something cozy about them and even in the summertime, you’ll often find me in lounge pants (which I refer to as “sweats” as well).  When I started working out regularly (read about My Story), I quickly found that sweats were not the best for jumping, lunges, well…anything else other than lounging around in!  I also found that when I wore cute workout clothes, it changed something mentally and made me workout harder!  I’m not complaining because that gave me an excuse to go shopping and I’m sure my hubby didn’t mind that I wasn’t lounging around in frumpy sweats anymore!

With 3 little ones, I don’t have a chance to go shopping very often but this summer, we had the opportunity to send them to the in-law’s which meant lots of jogs after work, random movie nights and even the occasional shopping trip!  One afternoon, I went to  Seattle Premium Outlets in Marysville to do a little retail therapy!hotpink Read more

Brooks Running Fall Preview Event

A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to go to a Fall Preview Event at Brooks Running.  I got to preview the fall fashion collection at the Trailhead store where we got to meet the design team and tour the corporate office!  This Pacific Northwest-based company knows what we need in terms of style, comfort and fit for people that are active, particularly runners, in the PNW.  I definitely wouldn’t call myself a “runner” by any stretch of means but have gotten into running short 5k races in the past few years (UW Bothell Husky 5k and Beat the Bridge).  It’s been a fun activity for the family and something we plan on doing with our kids annually.  So when we were asked to try on items from the fall fashion collection and pick a couple items to take home with us, I was SO excited!  Here are a couple things I tried on:

Title Nine Fitfest

Last week my friend, Tiffany, invited me to attend an event at Title Nine, a local woman’s fitness store, for a Fitfest!  The cool thing about this company was that it was founded by a woman and to this day, is employed by mostly women, so all of the items are carefully created and thought out with proper fit + comfort in mind.  We had the opportunity to meet with and get bra fitting advice from one of their “Bravangelist” experts.  Here are a couple of items I tried:Title Nine Runway Read more
