#RUNootd (Running Outfit of the Day)

OOTD_intro

My mom always told me, “If you think you look good, you’ll feel good.” I think this totally applies to running. If you look good, you’ll run well. I’m not ashamed to admit I put a little bit ok, a lot, of thought into what I wear on my runs every day. If my outfit is some old race t-shirt and those fluffy Nike running shorts from high school (you all know which kind I’m talking about) then I might not feel as good on my run. But if I have on some bright colors and a well-coordinated outfit, I usually feel fantastic. This might sound shallow to some people who just wear whatever is on top in their drawer but whatever, that’s your prerogative.

Lately though, I’ve noticed some followers on Instagram asking where a certain pair of shorts were from or what shoes I was wearing, so I decided, why not share this with you all? I’m trying to get #RUNootd (Run outfit of the day) going on Instagram/Twitter. This might already be a thing (is it? I don’t know) but I think it would be fun to share our running outfits. So, to kick off my first #RUNootd, I bring you this outfit I wore today.

May 26, 2014 #RUNootd.

Tank: Oiselle Flyte Tank in bright pink

Sports Bra: Nike Pro sports bra

Shorts: Under Armour Heat Gear ArmourVent Shorty 

Shoes: Hoka One One Clifton (sorry, these don’t hit retailers until Fall 2014!)

Socks: Swiftwick Vibe

Some comments on this #RUNootd:

  • The Oiselle Flyte Tank is the perfect summer running tank. It hugs close to the body without feeling too tight and lets in a lot of air. I think it’s perfect for days when it’s really warm out but not warm enough to warrant a sports-bra-only run.
  • I have been eying this Nike sports bra since we featured it in the magazine last year. I am obsessed with the speckled colors and finally brought myself to buy it this weekend at our local running store (which was having a 25% off sale on all apparel, what what??).
  • As I venture into the summer of the bootay shorts, I’ve been looking for a pair that are short but come down over my butt so they don’t ride up. I also wanted a pair that would “vent” well and not feel too hot. Oh, and I was in desperate need of bootay shorts with pockets. These shorts covered all of these bases (and I also got them for 25% off at the Run Inn!).

I’m going to try to make this whole #RUNootd thing an actual thing so it would be awesome if y’all joined in. Share your #RUNootd on instagram, tag me even if you want me to see (@HannahMcGold), and let’s share our awesome running outfits!

  1. Love your running outfit! I put a LOT of thought into coordinating cute running outfits…way more than I puy into coordinating my every day outfits! I agree with you 100%-a cute running outfit can be a great motivator and can totally make a run!! :-)

  2. You look really cute! I go running with nice long pants but now that it is getting warmer and warmer I should start wearing shorts but I also feel self-conscious :( I need to set the same goal than you :))) Regarding mz shoes I wear some old reebok (old means 7 o 8 years old) jaja that’s because I have not used them that much since the last months :)

  3. I have written a couple posts on this subject. When you look better, you not only feel better, but you actually preform better. Every runner knows proper running shoes can prevent injury. When you are injury free you run faster and further. Wearing the proper running gear, yoga attire, etc. is so important. Experts make this gear in particular to make the athlete more comfortable so they can preform better. I remember when I first started running, and I wore an old tshirt and soffe shorts with cotton socks. It was okay for a 3-5 miler, but anything longer I chaffed and had blisters. I will definitely do the hashtag on ig.
