If you follow Kristin Armstrong’s blog, Mile Markers, you are familiar with what she calls the Reset Run. The purpose of this run is to clear your head, recharge, and refresh. This is exactly what I needed after last week. It was an ugh, ick, and meh kind of week. I contemplated running a 5K today but my gut was screaming for a Reset Run. Fourteen miles of pavement pounding on a gorgeous Fall morning did the trick. I feel refreshed, things are in perspective, and I’m determined to make this week much better.
In the afternoon I hit up lululemon for some Fall/Winter running necessities. I’m always leery of running tights. My legs are short and muscular and I think they look like stuffed sausages in tights! I tried on every running crop they had and decided on the Priiti Crop. They were by far the most flattering and comfortable. I also got the Run: Swiftly Tech Long Sleeve (love!) and another Cool Racerback tank (I wear these every week; can’t have enough!). All together now…
I used to be Nike obsessed and now I’m slowly converting to lululemon obsessed. I don’t mind spending the money (the R&D discount is sweet) because I spend hours each week in running clothes and I want them to last, look good, and not get funkified after a sweaty run.
Tell me about your weekend run. Long, short, Reset Run, race, or no race…I want to hear it all!
