Wednesday-6 miles, early morning run with Lindsay
It was seriously, such a beautiful run. Beautiful sunrise and an even better conversation. Lindsay and I have one more run on the books and then she’s off to Portland, OR. Anyone out there want to be her new running buddy? She’s taking applications…

Winter Running Gear
I didn’t do all my running outside this Winter. If you’ve been reading my blog for a hot second you’d know I’m madly in love with my treadmill=) but I did invest in some great winter running gear for a great price.
My top favorite shops for running clothes are: Target, TJ Max, Old Navy, and Ross. I like these stores because they still have great clothes but they don’t break the bank.
Running pants: TJ Max-$16(if you get them anywhere like Nike, Under Armor, etc. they are usually $60 or more)
The inside is a warm fleece, and I love that they are tight so they don’t feel heavy.
Nike Jacket: Nike- on sale $30, orig. $75
I love the pockets(one on each side and a back pocket), thumb holes, hand coverings, and the inside is really warm. It’s also very light weight(think light like a wind breaker).
Nike Pullover-Christmas gift 2 years ago-$no idea, my husband used a gift card so it truly was free=)
I love the hand coverings and the hood(even though it looks absolutely ridiculous to wear). It’s a heavier material than the jacket and doesn’t have pockets but it keeps me very warm.
Long Sleeve shirt: TJ Max- $7.99
I love the color, the fit, and how light weight it is. It wicks away sweat and was super affordable.
*If I would’ve run outside more in the Winter I think I would have wanted to invest in ear warmers and sleeker gloves. I usually would wear my fleece gloves but they were bulky and made me hands feel claustrophobic.
If you sign up for any of these races, let me know and we can all meet up=)
