The Pretty Palm Run a Marathon Crops with the Gray Runner Up SS. I can't decide if I like this pattern on the run crop or not. I'd like to see it styled with other tops than the Runner Up ones.

I so agree with you about the Runner Up top. They should've made a plain option in every color! It's so pretty but the writing ruins it!

All the new running stuff has made me want to pick up running. (I dont run). Any shoe suggestions??

@ anon 12:19 pm - Go to a running store and get fitted. I didn't when I first started running. It turned out that I pronate and needed shoes to help with that. I ended up giving myself ITB issues that went away after I was put into the right shoe.

LLA- do you think we'll be seeing any more colors of the Stuff Your Bra? Kind of hoping for something more summery!

I saw cadet blue inspires with groovy stripe details on the legs today at my store in NYC! I tried those and the .run a marathon and finally got the marathon because I prefer the shorter lenght, but the inspires were super nice (I think the waist was quilted

I totally agree with LA! Getting fitted by a pro can really make a huge difference. I use Superfeet and they have helped my knees and hips so much. It really pay$ to pay the big bucks for shoes that are gonna work for your specific feet.

@ anon 1:20 pm - I would think we'd be seeing more Stuff Your Bra colors. The ones out now aren't that great, imo. It was a pretty popular bra.

The more pics I see of the RAM Crop in Pretty Palm, the more I'm certain I'll return them once I get my package. The contrasting mesh in back really bugs me. I hope the length is shorter like in most pics & not long like in the Cadet Blue pics.

Anon 12:19: ditto ... Head to a running specific store (not Sport Chalet, Sports Authority, Modell's etc, but Fleet Feet, The Running Room, RoadRunner Sports, etc). Expect to spend at least an hour, maybe more. Bring the socks you would expect to wear, or allow them to suggest a pair. I like Balega socks. If you're a skier, getting fitted for running shoes is like getting fitted for ski boots. It's a process, but is so well worth the time and effort for the right pair. Make sure that they not only look at your foot strike from the front/rear, but also from the side to check your stride. Good luck and happy running!!!

Wish there was as many green camo promotional photos as there are for this latest upload photos.....
Wait, the green camo didn't need any promotion! It sold out in seconds because it was great and most people were dying to get it.
Rise and shine jacket, hotly hot shorts, all sports bra, vest, CRB, forme jacket in GREEN CAMO will be forever missed...

Maybe I'm weird but I just dont udnerstand the "stuff your bra" crap. I think it's just nasty and gross (not to mention kinda tacky) to put your phone or money or whatever in a stinky, sweaty workout bra.

Skeeves me out. Anyone else? Am I alone here?

I agree LLA, I wish the Runner Up SS had no writing on it - the back is pretty and I like the neckline. But the word print ruins it.


@ 12:19, start with walk/run to build up your lung capacity and general tolerance. Of course there are all kinds of apps and programs out there to use as resources. Absolutely get fitted for the right shoe at a running store (not a big conglomerate). If you just run in cushion shoes and you need more support, you'll pay the price physically. I overpronate and wear a stability shoe. This type of shoe generally costs more money (than basic cushion), but it's worth it as it's the key equipment. What I usually do to economize, is I wait until the current year shoe model goes on sale (usually on-line) and I buy then. So I'm usually a year behind in model year (who cares...sometimes the technology improves, sometimes it doesn't) but the quality is there. I usually have 2 pairs on the go so I prolong the life of the shoes. I've tried other brands but am loyal to Mizuno for many years now.

Happy running!

@ anon 5:09 pm - I don't really get it either. My bra/chest is one of my sweatiest areas when I run. I'd have to put my money in a ziplock otherwise it would get all wet. Now, if they made the pockets with the "block it" waterproof material that would be something else. However, I know people who love these bras and put tons of stuff in them.

Can someone remind me what time the WMTM upload is happening now?

Jen said...

I love the stuff your bra, though I would never actually stuff it with anything that isn't already attached to my body. Great support for long runs. I find that it's more comfortable and less-chaffing (sp?) than the energy bra (my go-to for shorter runs)

Anonymous said...

I like the stuff your bra for casual wear... to the beach, under a tank in the summer, walking my dog, etc. It's great to have somewhere to put your phone, keys, driver's license when you don't want to carry a handbag. It would gross me out to have all of my stuff dripping with sweat while running!

I ordered the Run A Marathon crops in Pretty Palm and returned them today. I don't like how the pattern gets light in areas from the white backing and they are super low rise. On the plus side I LOVE the Wamo Camo inspires!

I run marathons and need supplements for my long runs mad races. I always put my salt capsules, shot bloks, etc in a little zip loc bag. I love the stuff your bra for races. On my long runs I'm sweaty all over.... Not just my chest. I love the speed shorts and pacesetter skirts and I figure the more pockets the better!

One thing to consider when you're shopping for new shoes - be sure to try them on in the late afternoon, or when you've been standing/on your feet all day since they usually swell.

Depending on your fitness level, I would start by walking a couple of days/week while you break in those new shoes, then try one of the Couch-to-5K apps (C25K). They build you up slowly. When I started a year ago, I could barely jog for the 30 second intervals. It takes time, but now I'm up to 8 miles on my long runs! Be sure to sign up for a color/dye run and have a great time!

Hahh! If not-getting-things-sweaty was my criteria for putting them in my pockets while I ran, then nothing -- nothing!! -- would ever be in my pockets! My money/phone/gels are going to get sweaty and nasty no matter what pocket they are in, whether it's in a bra or in an amazing side pocket of a crop or short, or in the back zipper pocket. All of those places are gross and sweaty by the time I'm finished a run. If I really want to keep things from getting nasty, I stick it in a ziploc.

That said, I actually didn't like the Stuff Your Bra last time it came out. Band was too loose, grrr. I'll wait for it to hit stores and then try it on. I hope it fits this time, because I always need more pockets! :)

Out of topic: Has anyone seen the WAFS Blue Tropics WUC in Canada? I'm so waiting for them!

Stuff Your Bra...it's not for me but I guess there is something for everyone. I saw a women the other day with her iPhone in her bra and my exact thought was "gross" to the phone being anywhere near one's chest, never mind the sweat and just looking silly.

I'm a minimalist runner for the few things that I take along. Fortunately LLL speed shorts and crops with the pocket in back and 2 little pockets in front are enough for me. (Also have the older version of the Run A Marathon crop and all the extra pockets which are great). Some l/s LLL shirts too have a pocket and I pretty much always utilize it.

I generally hate to run with a belt (and do only on really long runs) but if I need to take my phone with me, I now use a SPIbelt. I bought it and wore it recently for a race (as this time around it was just going to make things easier for meeting up with friends afterwards) and it was awesome. When they say that thing doesn't budge, it did not! It stayed put! I almost forgot about it so that fact (no distraction or annoyance) makes this a great solution.

wholly wmtm batman. you think lulu is cleaning house?

Jane Doe said...

OT… but After Asana pullovers are finally on WMTM! Grabbed one in my regular size in fatigue. Have been patiently waiting for weeks and weeks :D


Anonymous said...

I might be a little late to the party on these, but does anyone know how the free reign shorts compare to the work it out shorts from last year?

Sarah said...

Yes Jill there is a ton of stuff! What time did WMTM even upload tonight? I stayed up till 11 pm RMT and then bagged it, still tons of stuff left this am though, grabbed a few things!

Anonymous said...

Picked up a 105 singlet off WMTM - have been hoping for one for a while on sale! I also wanted the CRB in cashew, but it sold out in my size before I could grab them!

LuluAddict said...

@ Sarah - I think it came online around 4 or 5 am PST

anon at 12:19 here.

Thank you for all the advice! I am super excited to start running. Hopefully my years of yoga will make it a little easier. Im going to go to my local running store in SLC and get fitted for some shoes! Im thinking I should get a pair of road shoes and trail shoes since my fiance prefers to switch it up.

LuluAddict said...

@ anon 8:56 am - If you haven't run before definitely look into the Couch to 5K training program. That is what I used to start running.

Jill Erwich said...

I am on the east coast and checked it around 7am so 4am pst. When I looked there were only a few of the end (2,10,12) sizes which works for me because i take a 10 in crbs and bras.

y said...

I agree with Jen--I never actually put anything in the stuff your bra pockets! I wear it solely for the support--WAY better than the energy bra for me.

Anonymous said...

I wear the Run: Stuff Your Bra bra (and tanks) for everything from runs to practice (I play a field sport) to just out and about casually. I haven't ever put anything in the pockets, but it's the only bra that I've found that offers me enough compression while still being comfy. Just my $0.02 though. To each her own! :)

Jennifer @ Running on Lentils said...

Re: starting to run--don't give up yoga when you start running! Yoga is what has kept me injury free. When I started I'd never been able to run in my life. Like even as a little kid I was the only one who couldn't run the mile in elementary school. When I started, I followed Chi Running (which you may like if you do yoga) that promotes proper form & a technique that makes running easier. I was almost instantly (like over a week) running for 30 minutes straight after never running in my life. The book is from Danny Dreyer & available at any library. Good luck!

12:19/8:56, it's 6:24 PM, absolutely your years of yoga will help you. I've practised yoga for many years and am also a hard core runner (longer than being a yogi). They are excellent complements to one another. I have always been pretty balanced, but I often wanted to book my next run and sometimes yoga would take a back seat. In the past few years this is no longer the case. I now want both just as much, but sometimes I now want to practice yoga more. For me this is a good thing. Over the winter (brutal in Ontario this year), I did only a handful of runs but practised yoga all winter. I came into the spring barely missing a beat with the running, still in great shape and stronger than ever.

And definitely mix it up with road running and trail running or trail hiking. It's all great.
