Running Wish List + Kushyfoot Giveaway!!

Running Wish List





Today I wanted to share with you some of my favorite running fashions. You may have already seen most of these items last week from my Girls Run the 901 guest post, but I wanted to share them with you too.  Some of these items I already have, and some are still on my wishlist. I have about 5 of these sports bras, and they are the only ones I have ever worn that actually hold me in place and work for me without having to double up on sports bras (yes, some people do that.) And what is better than a sports bra in a bright neon yellow?!  I just recently got this running skirt to see what all the hype was about, and I am completely sold on them now. I can assure you I was very set in my ways and happy with my running shorts, but if you haven't tried the running skirts yet, definitely give them a try as they are really comfortable (and cute!)  A neon pink tank top, enough said. = )   I know I must be one of the only people who don't own any Lululemon. I have been wanting to try some of their pieces for a while, but haven't talked myself into spending the money yet.  You definitely won't blend in with the pavement in these floral shorts. They are another item that can be worn to run or workout in, and then you can pair it with a cute tee and some sandals for night.  I have about 10 pairs of Nike Tempo shorts, but what I don't have is any with my initals monogrammed on them.  Little did I know this was something I needed. I'm from the south, monogram everything. = ) New Balance Minimus shoes are some of my favorites, and I love this new design. They always make such fun, vibrant colors, and they are incredibly lightweight! I have a couple pairs of these bike shorts, but none with polka dots. The brighter, the better. These shorts are great for running, cycling, pilates, basically any kind of working out. 


And last but certainly not least are these amazingly comfortable and soft running socks from Kushyfoot!  Kushyfoot sent me a few pairs of them, and I love them!  So comfortable and great for running, working out or lounging in.  You're in luck today because I have partnered with Kushyfoot to give away a huge combo package of 8 different pairs of socks from KushyFoot!  They are great for running in, lounging in, doing yoga or pilates in, or wearing for everyday wear.  To enter just use the Rafflecopter widget below.  Do you have any of these items on my list? Would you wear them? Which are your favorite?

I used to buy expensive sports bra from Athletica but the hooks wore out so quickly. I am not large chested but I hate the headlights when I run so I always ran with 2 sports bra. That is until I tried the Old Navy sports bra - they do the trick and no more double sports bra!

I have a ton of the Nike shorts too and have not seen monogram ones - how fun!

Oh I love everything well maybe except for the teeny tiny shorts. I have some hungry thighs so teeny tiny shorts don't work for me. And I second the running skirts. Love them!

Alyssa said...

You are not alone with both the doubling of sports bras (none of my friends believe me when I tell them I used to do this) and not owning any Lululemon (I'd rather save my $$ shoes & bags! haha)

TheTinyHeart said...

Maybe if I had cute workout clothes like these I'd work out more often? :) Happy Friday, Laura!

I love the Nike Pro workout shorts but there is no way that I'd actually be able to wear them in public. I'd have to buy an XXXXXL to look acceptable!

FamilyFitnessandFoodery said...

Kiki said...

Exactly, Rachel. Sometimes it's okay to buy stuff that are stuff for as long as they make you feel amazing or comfortable.
