Will I Dress Up?

So, I got this awesome new top from my mom for my birthday, and I love it with my Bordeaux Will pants! It's still pretty warm here in SoCal, so fall colors are welcome, but it's still totally tank top weather. Also have some Frye flats that I practically stole from 6pm. That website is dangerous.

New Shoes!!

Is there a better feeling in the world than opening a box of new running shoes?? Okay, there are, but new running shoes are definitely a huge highlight. I decided to go with my favs-Nike Pegasus. They've gotten me this far! And after making some big strides I'm super excited to start using these. Although I have another race coming up in two weeks so I think I will wait until then to officially break these in on a run. I'm getting kinda nervous, as I've never run a 15k before, but after my 10k race last weekend I feel much more confident.

Where did we go?

So sorry for falling off the face of the blogosphere. I was traveling and camping and living it up! And now I'm back home, ready to face Monday with a grim determination. I got these WAFS Inspires a few weeks ago, and I love love love them! The Violet swooshes are so bright and pretty. I layered a crb under a Gap burnout tank. I love the look of burnout material, but I hate how clingy it gets after you wash it. Good thing this one was about $8. 
Hope you all are having a wonderful Monday. I started mine with coffee and green juice. Consider me jump started!!

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.
