I’ve been running again since the beginning of 2015. It has been a very long time since I’ve had any new athletic wear. What I have is either worn out or it’s uncomfortable because it has become so tight. I’ve been hesitant to buy myself any new workout clothes. I want to wait until I’m thin enough. Which, of course, my logic makes no sense at all! I knew one thing though, my running tights just weren’t going to cut it. Thankfully, I was invited to an event at the La Jolla Westfield UTC Athleta store to do some shopping and take a yoga class. Did you know that Athleta has workout classes in the store? I didn’t either! Athleta yoga and shopping! A perfect Saturday!
We did an hour long yoga class, right there in the store. It was a lot of fun! It was also challenging enough that my arms are still a little sore from the class. I took a look at their schedule online and realized that I’m not a special snowflake, Athleta stores frequently host exercise classes and running groups. How awesome is that?
They also offering altering services for their customers, which intrigued me, as I’m not a short woman, but my legs are very short in proportion to the rest of me. I’m often fighting to not step on the hem of my full length yoga pants. They also offer the “Give it a workout guarantee,” which guarantees that if after working out in the outfit, it doesn’t work out, you can return it for free! Athleta is part of The Gap, Old Navy, Banana Republic stores, which I didn’t realize until Saturday. I love that they offer clothing that performs like sportswear, but is very fashion forward that it could be worn every day. I’ll definitely be back to Athleta, either online or in the store. They have the cutest workout attire. I was so excited on Monday to try my new workout outfit. When I felt good about what I was wearing, I was motivated to workout. Who knew?
Here’s the outfit I chose. What do you think? I just adore it!
