Nathan for You!

A lovely reader had commented a while back that I should try the Nathan Sport Wash Detergent. It's pricey, around $20 a bottle, but my clothes have started to really reek. I mean, really. My husband said "Wow, your workout stuff really smells! Wait, have those already been washed!?". Yes. They had. Today he went to REI and picked some of this magical solution for his stinky wife. And I am floored! Particularly, my Black Swan Crb has been smelly for months. And after one wash, it's
fresh and clean!! Hope this helps other sweaty ladies out there. This stuff is for reals.

Last weekend I started pulling out all my winter clothes that have been stored in bins under the bed. I love this time of year. I love the weather, I love pumpkins (not pumpkin flavored everything, but actual pumpkins), I love being outside in the crisp air, and I especially love switching out my summer for winter clothes. It makes me feel like I've gotten a new wardrobe. And my cold weather pieces are some of my favorites of all time. Today I am wearing my herringbone Wunder Unders. I love love love them. They are last years version, and I have not regretted getting them for a single second. 

So my puppy turned 4 months this month and the vet said I can already start taking her on runs! This totally made my day and I started with her yesterday. I am obviously starting out small, but can't wait to build her up to my long runs. She went a mile and a half at 8:30 pace which didn't seem too shabby for her first try! She wasn't even breathing hard or tired, so I probably could have gone more with her, but wanted to keep it short. So I dropped her off and went out for several more solo miles. She definitely liked to try and chew the running belt leash, but overall she seems to have the love of running gene :)

Free to be Wild Spotted!

just saw a photo update from lulumum that a free to be wild has been spotted in Canada! I might go a little crazy if and when I see them online or in a store. They seriously make me so happy, it's a little ridiculous. The US warehouse sale on the other hand is super meh.

Today I am wearing the Nike pants I have been obsessed with. I will definitely be on the lookout for more colors on sale. They are similar to lulu's speed tights. I am also wearing my heathered purple long sleeve swiftly and black running vest from a couple years ago (I am blanking on the name at the moment).

Nike Dri-Fit Knit Infinity

October means fall. Fall (for me) means racing season. And racing season means new running clothes. I am a true lululemon addict, but Nike has always been a first love. And right now I am obsessed with their Epic Luxe Tights and their Dri-Fit knit infinity long sleeve. This long sleeve is super lightweight, yet warm. The arms and back are breathable and the neck is loose without being bulky. I love lulu tops, but so many have zippers, and I am not a fan. Zippers make it harder to layer, and are honestly just downright uncomfortable sometimes. And this color does it for me. It's so gorgeous. I cannot wait to break it out for a run in the crisp air. I am also wearing it today with trusty uggs, and heathered grey/black ebb to street pants.

This was my outfit today. Billabong tank over a WAFS CRB, and Skinny Groove crops. And juice that I made!! I just did a 3 day cleanse thru the Juice Ranch and it left me feeling so great that I've started juicing more often. Today I did beets, carrots, ginger, fennel, lime, mint, apple, and celery. YUM. 

Darn it.

Man, lucky ducks down under! Australia got their upload of Seawheeze merch and it's pretty glorious. I am kinda obsessed with the Seawheeze Multi, as seen in this Lighten Up Singlet. 
BUT I am not buying anything this month. Yes, I'm talking to you, Free To Be Wild.

Vinyasa -ing

I cannot believe it is already October! I have no idea where September went. Or June, July and August for that matter. I've had to take a bit of a break from running the past few weeks to let my body recover and heal, but I'm hoping to get back into the swing of routine this weekend. Last night was my first run in a long time where I didn't feel like my lungs were out to get me. I'm crossing my fingers that continues for the left few months. I have some races coming up that I'm getting anxious to really train for!

So I have no idea how to really style the vinyasa scarf. I know there are so many ways, but I usually just go for a basic scarf tie or infinity. In a way it's nice that there are so many ways to wear it. That way you can kinda throw it on any which way and it usually works. So today I went for the vest type wrap. I overheat super easily, so it works for an added later of warmth in the cool fall weather without being overkill. I love this scarf and this quilted pattern. I'm a sucker for blue and grey, and I love the uniqueness of the pattern. I didn't love it until I saw my sister in law wearing it, and then I was instantly in love and ordered it right then and there :)

I am also wearing my breathe easy crops. I love love the pant version, and when I found these on markdown I thought why not?! I adore them! They kinda funk up my outfit without being crazy. And of course, they are still black!

I'm looking for new running shoes in the near future. I love Nike Pegasus, but debating about trying something new. What are some favorites out there??
