I always get asked about my running style and fashion, so I wanted to create a 101 post to share my insights to get you running comfortably and styling as you get those miles in! I made this video to share the THREE top things I consider when choosing my running apparel, take a look:
Now, to dive deeper into what I shared I am in LOVE with styleshack.com for both running and casual every day fashion. They totally support local fashionable small business, like Gazelle sports, and you can not only save your favorite items but shop directly on line!
In addition to loving Styleshack, I LOVE when I find a running store that has awesome, stylish clothes like Gazelle Sports in Northville that I can visit in person and try on items to make sure they fit and are comfortable for that long run! In addition to running clothes, Gazelle Sports also features Lole, which is amazing for the corporate office or a night on the town.
Second, fashion and matching my shoes to my clothes!!! I love it when the shoes pick up a hint of color or contrast the clothes I am wearing.
And finally fit and function, if its not comfortable well then it’s not going to be comfortable for one mile let alone 26.2. Fit is crucial. Make sure there are no tight areas that can chafe, check your leggings or shorts to ensure the entire run is not going to be spent yanking them up and most of all, your running clothes should make you feel happy, vibrant and excited to be out there getting those miles in!
See you in just under 2 weeks at the Detroit Free Press Marathon and be sure to check out my favorite pics from Gazelle Sports on Styleshack here!
