nike free runs

This year my goal is to actually sign up to do some "official" runs. I’m a keen runner but have never got around to committing to anything official or organised. Starting off slow, I've decided that do Colour Run in August but I hope to do a few others before then. Step one of getting run ready for me is always about the clothes. I always think that if I have a decent gym kit then my fitness motivation with flood into me. Long gone are my days of trekking to the gym in my see through leggings from overbearing them and a ex boyfriend tee. Forever 21 have launched an active range called Forever 21 Active. A range of fashion forward items all designed to look stylist but practical while working out. It's not all sports bras and hot pants, not all of us are blessed with the dream bod quite yet! None the less, it's a varied range of simple workout tops and bottoms in eye-catching colours, prints and styles to suit any shape and taste. I went for the striped vest top and some slim fitting legging style bottoms along with hoodie as it's a bit nippy outside.  The perfect mix between activewear and something that I didn't feel self conscious pounding around Clapham Common in!

  1. I did the Colour Run last year, great fun, but I ended up walking most of it because of how busy it was. Definitely a good day though.
    I love running, so am hoping to do a couple of 5k's this year - and was looking for some new gear so this is well timed! :) xx

  5. I discovered Forever 21's sport range just after xmas and went back for more last week ! I run and do some zumba and pilates and needed some new sport stuff to replace my grey/see through t shirts. The bra-lets are good for wearing under sleeveless T's for a bit of modesty when jumping around like a loon in zumba and the leggings are comfy on long runs, plus I think give decent support as well. I was actually surprised at how good the range is. A decent budget alternative when all my pennies are being saved for new running shoes!
