Back to Winter Training and a Giveaway

We have a winner! Using random.org the winner is Sara P. Please email me laney.cohen (at) gmail (dot) com.  For whatever reason I thought it would be a great idea for my first half marathon in  a year or so to be in March. Unfortunately, that means training in the dead of winter. When it comes down to training, I tend to wear the same comfortable items...Sugoi MidZero Tights, Nike Compression Bra, Lululemon Cool Rackerback, a long sleeve shirt (either Lululemon Run Swiftly or if it is really really cold Craft Mock Long Sleeve), and a Mizuno wind breaker. I am not as you can see a brand loyalist. I spread the wealth depending on my needs.

A few weeks ago, I received an email from activewearusa asking if I’d like to review some of their products. New workout clothes? That are stylish? What girl could say no? I rationalize my need for more workout clothes because I work from home and these are in essence also my work clothes.

I received an all-purpose Stella Crossback tank, solid pink with white straps. They are not joking when they say it was great support. I was surprised at how high the neck came up, but loved the slimming fit of the top. The tightness and the color created a small exposure problem, so even though a second bra wasn't necessary for support when I was doing yoga, I needed it for a little coverage. (I am thinking a darker color would be a different situation.)

When using it as my base layer for running, it didn't ride up like some of my other tanks, which I loved. So now that I have told you all about the tank, would you like to win a little exercise style?
