Saturday Style | Running Clothes

Next on the list of things IΒ actually wear on the weekends: Running clothes. (Both for exercising and for leaving the house without showering.)

I wear a lot of bright workout clothes, and for some reason, a few years ago, I started mismatching them on purpose. And really, I think it makes exercise more fun. πŸ™‚ (I’m sure plenty of you are rolling your eyes right now … )

I found these pants on major sale at Old Navy, and I figured that at $8, it didn’t really matter if they were good or not. But they were amazing. I was actually really surprised (because Old Navy doesn’t alwaysΒ sell the most high-quality clothes), but I can’t say enough good things about them. They’re thick enough to not be see-through, and they’re technically compression leggings, which make your legs look nice and smooth. (Which is more than I can say for my old, stretched-out leggings.)

After I’d been out of college about a year, I started running in road races with friends. It wasn’t too much – a 5K, an 8K, a 10K – but then a friend convinced me to join a half marathon training team with her.

It was a great decision, but I went from running twice a week to running five days a week. And aside from being exhausted, I needed a lot more running clothes! So I went to Walmart and bought a bunch of cheapΒ tops and shorts.

For the most part, they were pretty standard basics, but I did find the top in the pictures, which has mesh details on the sides and the back. So don’t underestimate what you can find for cheap. πŸ™‚

Thanks for reading!
