The Newest Nugget

29 Sep

Tomorrow’s the big day! My legs are eager to let loose at the Brooksie Way half marathon.

But before I pound the pavement, I have some exciting news to share! I posted yesterday that I was meeting with a social media guru for the company I work for (in addition to being a GA)..

I’m ecstatic to announce that I’m the newest member of lululemon athletica Somersets’ social media team! I couldn’t be happier and am thrilled to get the ball rolling on this project! I’ll be blogging about:

  • products (the newest to the not-so-newest),
  • what to where during “this” workout,
  • how this product felt during “this” workout,
  • workouts (in general),
  • ambassador classes, local yoga studios/gyms, running club reviews
  • recipes, and
  • fitness, healthy living, and fashion nuggets here and there 🙂

I’ll also be venturing out into the community and hopefully, in some way-shape-form, incorporating Oakland University into the mix! Expect a post weekly with deets of all things lululemon-this is exciting!

I’m heading into the store today to pick up an outfit for the half marathon tomorrow. If you know me, I’m not one to wear tight pants; loose, relaxed capri’s and pants, yes; leggings and spandex, absolutely not! It’s not a body image thing, rather, a claustrophobic thing. Something about skin-hugging pants and barely-breathable tops is just not comfortable for me to wear daily, let alone exercise and run 13.1 miles in. BUT..it’s time to get over this. I’m stepping out of my comfort zone and will try: photos courtesy of the Lululemon website.

  • Wunder Under pant/crop
  • Run: Inspire crop II
  • Star Runner tight
  • Runnin’ with my Homies pant

A couple of things I’ll think about as I’m trying these on:

  1. do I feel like “Katie” in them?
  2. is my stride restricted?
  3. when I start to sweatglisten, will it change the feel of the pant?
  4. most importantly (ladies will agree), are they flattering, cute, and fashionable?!

There’s a 30% chance of rain in the morning and the temperature will be between 60-65 degrees. I’m one to dress warmer rather than dress for how I’ll feel actually running (you can always take off, not put on!); I’m leaning towards a pant, a short-sleeved shirt with arm warmers, and a vest. How does that sound?

A sneak peek:

Come back tomorrow evening to see what I chose to run the race in!
