So there are 3 things I really love about running and they are:
- Channeling my competitve side into something constructive
- Fun clothes/running gear
I love that I can justify shoes and fun tops because well, I need it to run, right?
One of my favorite brands is RawThreads (www.rawthreads.com)! They are seriously awesome.
One of my biggest problems as a runner is that running tops chaffe… bad. At the top of my boobs where the top of the tank top/bra hit, at the bottom of my boobs if the band rides up, side seams, armpit areas… basically anywhere there is a seam, I have issues. Not fun. This issue is greatly mitigated by wearing RawThreads.
Their stuff is lightweight, wicks sweat well, is super, super soft, and they have a ton of cute designs.
My love affair started with RawThreads as I was gearing up to run my first Disneyland race last year and was earning my first coast to coast medal, so naturally I needed to run that half marathon in this bad boy:
I fell in love. It didn’t chaffe, it was super light weight, and so soft. I knew something was starting right then.
Since then I’ve run in many races wearing their stuff.
