I’m a lover of the world and far off places who is so excited that you’re here. Looking forward to sharing more of my world with you and all the things I love. I hope this site really does feel like a wellness oasis right here on the internet.
It’s official! I’ll be running the New York City Marathon in 2023. I’m excited to finally run the race that was supposed to happen last year in 2020. I have a long time between now and the New York City Marathon but also a long way to go. Running is something I’ve always done for my mental health and it’s a good reminder of the power that we’ve got both mentally and physically. Planning to do a summer running challenge so I’ve been focused on getting back into it. For me running is a huge way of remembering my personal power and it’s been such an important part of my health and wellness journey. I always refer back to running when I’m in times of transition. Tith the year that I have had so far, I am really looking forward to a summer challenge and I think it’s going to be just what I need to get ready for some exciting next steps I have coming up.
While I love to run there are often days where I just don’t feel like it, we all have those moments. Typically a change of outfit into something I love along with some quick deep breaths and gratitude really does the trick.
When it comes to getting out of the house to go on a run, putting on an outfit that makes me feel comfortable, confident and strong is essential. Putting on a bright color actually makes a huge difference in my mood. If you’ve followed along over the years, you’ll know I’ve been a long time lover of lululemon, especially their running bras. I have worn these bras for years. These have been a preferred bra for me since my very first days of racing and they always make me feel great. Feeling confident and feeling amazing within your body means different things every day and for me sometimes it comes from changing clothes and doing hard things but getting through them. I’m really excited to be sharing some more of my summer lululemon pics and to be able to share some more motivation with you all.
lululemon bras are a race day staple and this year as I embrace color even more I’ve been loving these red hues. Sizing is inclusive and these keep everything in place without being too tight. I’m part of the lululemon collective and will receive a commission if you make a purchase through the links below. My current summer faves are the Wunder Train High Rise Short 8″ shown here in red merlot, the All Powered Up Bra Medium Support Bra in dark red and the Power Pivot Ribbed Tank Top you can wear more than one way. I also just picked up this belt bag for summer runs and the Rain Chaser jacket since I’ve gotten caught in the rain several times lately and I’m obsessed! It’s really the quality, styles and fit for me. Love these shorts because they’re the perfect length and fabric just wicks the sweat away. I’ve always been a fan of running in Lululemon bras because they give me the support I need but still aren’t too tight and the ribbed tank is perfect for runs where I want a little more coverage on top without feeling hot! I love the belt bag for everyday dog walks, runs and more because it holds all the essentials (wallet/phone/gum) and the rain jacket has kept me dry through so many surprise Chicago storms.
