Running in Pink

Shirt: Champion // Shorts: Champion // Shoes: New Balance

Running has always been my strong-suit. Going to the gym? Hate it. Winnipeg winters are really harsh (-40 Celsius...) and so running outside is out of the question. My mother still goes out and runs in the freezing cold, but I'm a chicken, so I use the treadmill. I have a free membership at the university, so I might as well use it!

Right now, the clothes I have in my locker are super old. Like, 4 years old, old. But, I don't care. It's sitting at the bottom of my gym bag most of the week anyway (I go Tuesdays and Thursdays during my 2-hour break). I did just buy brand new work out clothes, but I haven't had the chance to use them yet, until Tuesday, when I went for a quick jog outside, nearly getting myself killed by an apparently blind, mini-van driving woman.

I LOVE my new clothes! Super light, very comfortable and cheap! (Yay for Target!) It's been a revelation! I never really had really work out clothes, just whatever shorts and t-shirt I could find lying around in my closet, or whatever my mom would lend me. The pink may be my least favourite colour (it was the only one my size...), but it actually looks pretty good!

I'm really starting to dread winter right about now, but let's not get ahead of ourselves; it's only October 3rd!


  1. You look so cute! Hurray for comfortable workout clothes... I mean, exercise is uncomfortable enough, so you might as well wear clothing that feels good, right? When I ran cross-country, I got this pair of men's shorts that I loved (sounds weird but I liked them better than the women's shorts, too short and they rode up!) and they're still my favorite pair. Target is now my go-to for workout stuff!

    1. Thanks! That's a really great point! I used to wear a lot more boy clothes too. I used to hate the girls' shorts! Target just opened here this summer, so I'm just starting to make all these discoveries!
