Back To Running | Workout Gear

Happy Friday!  It felt so great to get back to my running routine this week!  I ran sporadically over the holidays, but I was definitely off my normal routine.  This week I got back on track with both exercise and eating and I feel so much better!  However, today I'm skipping because we are staying in the low 30's feels like 20's today.  I can run in August here when it's 100, but I cannot do the cold runs.  That burn in my throat and constant runny nose while I'm running is no fun.

I also wanted to share a few of my favorite running/workout items.  Santa brought me some new running shoes over the holidays and I love them!  My last two pair have been Brooks and once you run in those it's hard to run in anything else.  But my son got a pair of the Nike Zoom Pegasus for Christmas and I really liked the look of them, so I checked them out for women and they had great reviews.  After trying them on at a local store for fit, I immediately came home and ordered the color I wanted.  The amount of time I spend on finding the right running shoe is really pretty ridiculous.  But I ran in them this week and so far really like them.  The fit is true to size for me and I'm wearing my normal tennis shoe size.  And just FYI, this Nike Zoom Pegasus 33 color combo is currently on sale.

Another favorite of my is this Patagonia jacket.  Most of my clothing is reasonably priced, but I do splurge on pieces, like this jacket, that I know is a staple that I'll have for many years.  I love the slim, sleek fit.  True to size for me too...just for sizing reference, I ordered a small and still enough room under it for light warm clothing, without being too bulky.  I'm sure it will get lots of use this weekend. 

Have a wonderful weekend!


  1. We love our Patagonia jackets. Lightweight, but super warm. Swell bottles are awesome too.

  2. This is just a fantastic article. Glad to see these work out gear photographs. I have also bought beautiful fitness apparel recently from Carbon38.com and these are superb. The fabric is extremely cozy and super flexible for all kinds of workouts.
