Whooha Gear Giveaway & Discount Code ….

image

Whooha Gear is my go to favorite for lifestyle tees & tanks.  I’ve long been a fan of their clothing line, optimistic attitudes and their “Believe, Achieve, Inspire” type quotes.  Each piece is branded “Play Hard, Take Chances & Keep Smilin’”.  Why, yes, I will!  Factor in the low prices & great selection and now you know why I’m hooked.  Smile

Some of my Whooha Gear collection is below.  I pulled these from the archives so you won’t see all of them in the current lineup.  I’ve added a link to the ones that are still available.   I wear these pieces nonstop. If you travel with me, you may be tired of looking at them but no worries, I got a few new ones for our future trips!!!

Regret Nothing Slub Tee

As you can tell, I’ve been collecting for a while and I’ve just added two new ones this week.  The Chase Your Dreams Slub Tee and the Be Yourself Slub Tee. Michael loves the “don’t follow your dreams, chase them” tee.  He insisted on taking a pic.  So “Hello” from Mr. Michael!!  I’m a huge fan too.  Wore that one yesterday & today I’m wearing the Be Yourself.  BE strong, humble, true, happy, inspired, fearless, kind, bold, selfless, hopeful, courageous, love, consistent, graceful, disciplined, bright, brave and wise. Just BE yourself.  I couldn’t say it better myself.  We are all different.  That’s the great thing about everyone.  Don’t be afraid to BE you!

Favorite Things …… 2013 Edition

Every year as the holidays approach, readers start asking for a list of my favorite things.  This year I haven’t found a ton of NEW run things that I love but I do have a few favorites. 

image

My favorite lifestyle tees this year are the Whooha Gear, Regret Nothing tee ($24) & the Tough Chik, I Run Because tee ($22), which is actually on my wish list!  Both of these are inexpensive items that deliver a message.  The bold, neon orange Regret Nothing tee is one of my absolute favorites that I wear constantly (and you can still use the INSPIRE discount code for 10% off).  However the “Run Because” tee holds a special spot in my heart.  Shannon from Tough Chik sent out a poll asking ladies for the reason as to why they run.  All of the quotes in the heart of that tee are from MY friends, YOUR friends, and random Tough Chiks everywhere.  We may not all run for the same reason but we will run united as Tough Chiks FOREVER!

My favorite running items this year?  The Asics Emma Racerback ($34) & the Athleta Relay Capris.  My “Emma” is always dirty.  As soon as it comes upstairs from the wash, I pull it for a treadmill run.  The butter soft, lightweight fabric makes this baby the BEST shirt I own for a hot, sweaty workout.  They have three colors, I only own the Energy Print but would definitely buy more if I didn’t feel guilty cuz my workout wardrobe is larger than what most people own for “everyday wear”.  My go to “bottoms” are always the Athleta Relay Capri pants ($69).  You can say what you want about how costly the Athleta items are but these capris stand the test of time.  I only add one pair of capri’s to my “collection” every year and well, I’m still wearing the original black ones that I bought 4-5 years ago.  I’ve since added navy, cobalt blue, asphalt and the new sandstone inkblot ($74) to my closet.  They come in tall and standard sizes, fit perfectly, don’t move when I run and they also have a zip pocket in the back that is large enough for my iPhone.  I don’t own any other capri pants cuz these are perfect and stylish.  Total win!

Something that’s been on my wish list for a LONG time, is a pair of aviator sunglasses.  Why?  Cuz all the cool kids wear them and well, lots of fast runners in my area do too.  Somehow my brain now equates aviator sunglasses with cool people who run fast.  Yeah, let’s just go with it.  Since it’s no secret that it’s hard to find a pair of sunglasses to fit this oblong, skinny face, I thought I was out of luck …… until I saw that Smith Pivloc was making a “slim” version of their Serpico style.  Enter into my world the Smith Pivloc Serpico Slims ($90-$119).  According to Aby, it doesn’t matter what sunglasses I wear, I’ll never be cool, or fun and she is NOT amused.  Sorry, Aby.  Actually, no, I’m not sorry.  I will continue to embarrass you for THE.REST.OF.YOUR.LIFE.  Love you, babe!

Last but not least, I have to cover the feet.  My feet take me EVERYWHERE and for that reason, I don’t wear cheap shoes (or socks!).   When I’m not running, or hanging with the kiddos, then I’m probably downtown in the Windy City for the J.O.B.  It gets cold downtown fast.  And stays cold forever.  I need a boot that is comfortable, stylish and can take me thru the snow & ice then directly into the office.   My boot of choice for the 2013-2014 winter season is the Keen Bern Baby Bern Boot ($170).  Love these bad boys!  They are light and comfy, keep my feet warm but also don’t cause my feet/legs to overheat either, which is super important if your day ends up as long as most of mine.  I’ve already worn them several times this season and they are the best boots I’ve owned to date.  One day last week I put them on at 5am and wasn’t able to take them off til 7pm.  Long day but my feet felt great, no rubbing, no fatigue, just happy feet!

Whooha Gear GIVEAWAY!

I had a crappy weekend.  First off, there was the bad race at Great Illini where the temps soared over 100 degrees and my bike tires and shoes stuck in the tar.  Apparently nobody received the memo that heat/humidity is my kryptonite.  Second, I was struck with a full blown allergy attack that left my face swollen and haggard looking.  SO, let’s get things back on the happy track and do a giveaway!!!  WhooooHoooooo!!!  Or should I say, WhoooooooHaaaaaaa!

Whooha Gear has been one of my favorite retailers over the last couple of years.  I have multiple pieces from them ranging from butter soft tees to a loose fitting hoodie that I wear everywhere. Good stuff (you can see my last post on Whooha Gear HERE).   Whooha is a small women owned company offering products for other women athletes with the intent to help inspire other women.  That’s a winning philosophy in my book!

WHOOHA = Women Having Optimistic Objectives & Healthy Attitudes

I have two items from the new 2013 line and I have several more things on my “wish list”.  I picked up the “Regret Nothing” tee (Play Hard, Take Chances, Keep Smilin) at the Zooma Chicago expo.  I haven’t seen this orange one online yet but they have it and if you want to call them, I bet they will get you one!!

Whooha_regret nothing  

Then last week, I received this baby in the mail right before heading out to the disastrous Great Illini 70.3.  The Swim, Bike, Run Heartbeat tee:

Whooha_swim bike run

I’ve never been much of a t-shirt person but these don’t feel like traditional tees.  They are soft, form fitting but not super tight and they move with me.  I’m not only comfortable in them but love the message and designs.  I have basically been wearing them around the clock which is why I don’t have a photo of me in the orange tee cuz it’s always headed to the wash when I’m not working or exercising.

Do you want to win a Whooha shirt or hoodie?  Whooha has generously agreed to give one winner their pick from the website.  Yes, anything.  You pick what you like and what fits your style!   Go look around HERE and leave me a comment below telling me what you will pick if you win.  If you would like a second entry into the giveaway, go like the Whooha Facebook page and leave a comment below telling me you did so and please provide your FB name for verification purposes.

One winner will be drawn on Friday, September 6th at 9am.  GOOD LUCK!

And if you can’t wait to win, then please shop HERE  using the discount code:  INSPIRE for 10% off your order. 

Don’t forget to “Play Hard, Take Chances & Keep Smilin”!
