Running colors (and prints)

Training for a marathon takes a lot out of you mentally -- long runs are looongg. My trick for pushing through a mental block is to visualize myself crossing the finish line the day of. There are several scenarios that I play over and over again in my head but they all include me wearing a brightly-colored and/or multi-patterned running outfit. While I know from experience when the actual moment comes the last thing I will be thinking about is how pretty or cute I look, I also know having stylish gear the morning of the race will boost my confidence. (Plus it's great to wear during training!)

  4. Athleta Printed Base Camp Half Zip ($69)
  5. Saucony Elite Arm Warmers ($25)
  6. Nike Printed Tempo Track Women's Running Shorts ($36) (yes I did them twice but the prints are all so fantastic!)

  1. That sparkle sweat band is amazing! Would it be lame to wear a sweat band while not actually exercising?

  2. Mmmmm compression socks. Love all of it. Seriously, if you're going to be running, you might as well feel AWESOME doing it :)

  3. I need workout clothes like this!

  5. I bought those shorts last night at Dick's sporting goods. They're having a great sale right now. They were only $21. And with those and an Under Armour Dri-Fit shirt and a $10 coupon I only paid $40 including tax. You should check it out.
