few of my favorite run things

I love running. I love sweating. Here are a few of my favorite things to run half marathons in, and get my sweat on in bootcamp in.


I am in love with the RUN Swiftly Racerback, paired with a Flow Y.  (Cold days you'll find me in a RUN Swiftly Tech LS).

Super lightweight, wicks my sweat and literally puts a bounce in my step, but not my bust. (I am an A- B+ cup on a good day, so I do not need a ton of support).  But I can still bend over or drop it like it's hot without falling out.

I cannot run with sunglasses on. Don't get me wrong: big sunnies are one of my first loves, but they do not function well on my runs. (We all know I've tried).


So thank you lululemon design gods for the amazing Flight Running Bonnet. Lightweight hat that is comfortable and protects my eyes? Yup, it was love at first flight.

Pony tail rests comfortably without snagging my locks, and a secure zipper pocket protects my cash. The sides and pocket are lined with Circle Mesh an,d my hot head can breathe.


Now let's talk about downstairs. The RUN Empower Crops are the best things that have happened to my legs since self tanner.


My legs and butt are simply in love with stretch power luxtreme. Holds my badonk in place, supports my hamstrings, and wicks my sweat really quickly!

My waistline is smaller than my hips and bum. So the drawstring holds everything up, and the waistband holds everything in.

P.S. Who doesn't love hidden secure pockets?


Best lesson learned as a runner, you have to spoil your tootsies with good socks! Seamless, built-in arch support and moisture-wicking, the Featherlight Socks are my favorite.

soft supportive and delicious

I made the mistake of running my first half marathon with big bulky socks that did not moisture wick, and had big fat seams on the toes. By mile 10 my feet were killing me, and I ran with a hitch in my giddy-up the last 3 miles. I could barely walk at the end of the race, and my toes had 2 big new blisters.

You may not see me winning any races anytime soon. But I will always finish, I will always be comfortable and I will always be confident with my lululemon running gear. It's like my favorite coach used to say "If you look good you feel good, if you feel good, you do good." Agreed.

I am a runner and just finished my first half marathon on Sunday the 7th! I wore my run empower crops and my run swiftly short sleeve shirt! I also wore the tatatamer because at 5’4″ with a 34D chest, I need a LOT of support.
I was so comfortable the whole time! (I even had my running socks on to protect my toes.)
I lovelovelove lululemon’s running clothes, most luxurious and supportive I’ve ever felt!

I recently discovered the RUN Empower Crops and am so thankful for the support they offer. They hit my stomach at just the right height and hold everything in nice and tight!

Great post Whit – I’m dying to test out the new Flight Running Bonnet. You’ve inspired me to pre-plan my Sun Run outfit. ;)

Love it, Whitney!!! I won my AG in a local 10K on Sunday decked out in Lululemon down to my socks! (And finished an IM in November in my Run Swiftly T) I do all my running in Lululemon gear these days and hope to race in it even more!

Yay! I just asked ya’ll what to wear for a half marathon, although I’m not 100% certain that you posted this answer just for me, I have to say I feel awfully special! :)

Thanks for the great tips, I can’t wait to drop by my local store and try some of these items on!

I’ll have to do up a post for men’s run to follow this up. I’ve never been so comfortable while logging those long miles all winter long since switching my run gear over to all lululemon.
