While some may argue that the feeling of renewal that accompanies the new year is the best part of January, I'd argue the winter sales might have it beat.
Anticipating the swarms of resolutioners who will be signing up for gym memberships (usually at a discount!), plenty of stores drop prices on their workout clothes.
I rarely shop at Old Navy (it's not convenient for me), but once a year their 40% discount on workout clothes gets the best of me! This weekend I picked up some new gym shorts for Matt and a few new tops for myself.
|I got this tank in neon coral and neon green.|
|This tank is cotton, but will be good for cross-training.|
(The sale is still going on, plus an extra 25% off with the code JACKPOT.)
|Neon green might be my new favorite neon!|
|The shirt is a little looser than my usual taste, but it's really comfortable and I love the straps.|
It's a good thing I've got some new running clothes, because I'm finally putting together my winter/spring race schedule.
February: I finally decided how to celebrate my birthday. The weekend after, I'll be in Tampa with Kristin (and hopefully some other ladies from our Ragnar team) running the Gasparilla 15k and half marathon. Yes, both! I'm excited.
Also, February 8 I'll be running the Run to the Arts 5k with Elisa. It will be her first race ever and my first race of 2015...I haven't raced a 5k in a long time and I'm pretty nervous!
March: The Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure on March 7.
April: The Shark's Tooth 10k is the morning after a friend's wedding...I still plan to get there but it will mean a very early morning and a long drive after a late night. I'm already concerned about my plan to PR it!
My backup race is a 5k I've run in the past and really love:
|The Fast and the Furriest!|
I'm hoping that this year I'll be in DC with students again in May and will finally be able to cross an item off my bucket-list: run in DC!
I haven't signed up for all these races, but they're on my radar and they would keep me motivated through spring.
Have you put together your 2015 race calendar?
Do you sign up in advance, or wait for races to get closer?
Which cost-efficient workout clothes do you love? Old Navy and Target are my favorite!
