A Fabulously Fit Party!

So last week I hosted a little party/shopping night for my fit friends at Road Runner Sports.  There were about 17 girls in all, and we drank some champagne and ate delicious, healthy snacks (courtesy of the fabulous Kirsten, who is not pictured but should be because she's gorgeous and awesome).  All of the girls who attended were given goodie bags full of all sorts of fantastic swag, including socks, kinesio tape, muscle rub, Gu Brew and more.  Everyone also received a VIP membership for an entire year.  Needless to say, it was a super fun evening with my incredibly awesome friends.  I think I enjoy shopping for workout clothes more than shopping for regular clothes.  Am I weird?  It may have something to do with the fact that I spend every single weekend in workout capris and nothing else.  But that is beside the point...

I think Renee and I convinced her to buy those Brooks.  Once you go Brooks, you never go back!
P.S.  I got that awesome bright orange top and love it!

Champagne in a can -- greatest invention since sliced bread
I enjoy shopping at Road Runner Sports because of the free services they offer, like the Shoe Dog video gait analysis.  They analyze your feet as well as your gait and give you a handy dandy little print-out with your results.  This helps you to choose the appropriate footwear.  I'm not saying it's a guarantee against injury, but one of the girls at the party had expressed that she has always had pain in every pair of shoes she's worn.  She then went to RRS and had her gait analyzed and had the appropriate shoe picked out for her.  She hasn't had a problem since.  People into the barefoot movement might not agree with this approach but I think it can be insightful.  The more you know, the better.  For instance, I have extremely high arches and I supinate way too much.  That tells me that I shouldn't be wearing a shoe with arch support and ankle support because this will futher inhibit me from rolling inward, which I need to do more of.  Good to know, right?



Road Runner also offers free bra fittings in their "Bra-llywood" section.  It  turns out most girls are not wearing the correct bra size, even when it comes to sports bras.  I don't have very much boobage so I find it pretty easy to get the support I need; but some girls with more robust chests could use a little help in that department.  A couple of my well endowed friends were able to find incredibly supportive bras; which will be a nice break from having to double up on the sports bras. 

Do you have more fun shopping for

workout wear or regular clothing?

 

Have you ever had your gait analyzed or your boobies sized?

  1. I did a gait analysis once at the Brooks bus. They told me what I always knew - despite my inside-wear on my shoes, I have a neutral gait and strike. But every running store always put me in stability shoes! I put my foot down (pun) and bought neutral shoes the next time around and my chronic knee pain went away forever in about two weeks. Impressive. I highly recommend gait analysis!

  2. Party at RRS. What a fabulous idea! I've been a VIP since they were catalog only and I'm a true fan. Did you know they can look you up and tell you how much you have spent there over all time? Scary!

    Never had the girls tested, but had the gait analysis done last year at an event RRS was at. They told me I had a much more neutral gait that I'd thought and it prompted me to switch from Asics Kayano to a less supportive, more cushioned shoe (still Asics though, I'm a true fan-girl). I haven't noticed a difference yet in any of my "issues" but, where there's life, there is hope!

  4. Every time I go out to buy something for normal wear, I come back with workout clothes. So yes, I love shopping for them more than regular clothes. Love the orange tank!

  6. I don't have enough of a chest to need fitting, but I've done the gait analysis. Mine is totally normal, which is great.

  7. I *heart* Road Runner...and their gait analysis even though I'm a minimalist runner. It works for me, not for everyone so I am glad they provide that service! So yes I've done that. I have, however, never ever whatsoever had my boobies measured because they would likely A: laugh and ask where they are and then B: send me to the training bra department. The joy of being "built like a long distance runner".

  8. No on both, unless you count getting felt up the first time I purchased a bra at VS. :P What an awesome evening, missy!

  11. Sounds like a great event! I am addicted to buying workout wear. My husband is awesome and frequently comes home with new gear for me, too! A few weeks ago I got a new running jacket from him, and last weekend a new hydration pack. Love it!
