August, is that you? I know, I’m just as shocked as you are to be writing that out. On the fourth, no less.
I’m getting back into the swing of half marathon training – putting one foot in front of the other, while simultaneously hoping I don’t keel over from a heat stroke. I’m looking forward to running the Kansas City Half Marathon in October (cool weather!) alongside one of my best friends…hey, Meg! I did, however, miss one teeny tiny little detail. The race is the Saturday after we get back from our cruise. Meaning we get back Friday and I’ll be racing bright and early Saturday morning. Big, big oops (and a true testament to my scatterbrained nature as of late). But there’s no turning back now.
I usually subscribe to the less is more option when it comes to workout wear because my body tends to overheat in even the coolest of temps. Old Navy’s activewear is by far some of my favorite on the market – for both functionality and price. I own three pairs of their compression pants (which offer more coverage for strength training classes or Bar Method) and I’m looking to add a few more with color to add some pizzazz to my workout wardrobe.
I’ll be rotating this pair of running shoes with my waveriders during training, but I knew I needed to invest in a pair of tennis shoes that work for strength training as well. I’ve gotta hand it to Nike, the cushioning on these are like heaven on my feet and at $75, the price is right.
