Happy Friday! This afternoon I will be heading down to Richmond for a half marathon this weekend….just kidding…will be there for a wedding 🙂 Today I am linking up with Mar, Courtney, and Cynthia and the theme this week is Five Brands to Love.
1. Jade Yoga

When I was looking for a new yoga mat last year my friend Laurel (also a yoga instructor) recommended Jade Yoga. I love my mat and they come in different colors. According to the website they are environmentally friendly, non slip (but can be slippery during hot yoga) and comfortable (if you need extra cushioning they do have a thicker mat size, but it is not as thick as the lululemon version).
2. Brooks Heritage Collection

My Brooks Adrenalines are my Go To Shoes (GTS) for running. Last year Brooks introduced the Brooks Heritage Collection and I purchased a couple of pairs when I was in Boston for the B.A.A 5K. They come in fun colors and are so comfortable! I use these as my “casual” shoes – they look a bit nicer than wearing my running shoes all weekend. If you have a chance, check out their Instagram account, I swoon over the shoes they post!
My roller of choice! I was looking for a dense foam roller and this brand does the trick.
Surprised? Love their spring line/colors and luckily I was given a few holiday gift cards from my siblings, cousin and my Oiselle Secret Santa, Sheila! Good clothes, good mission, good people.
Lucy is another athletic clothing retailer. I primarily shop here for their socks….I know pretty random, right? A few years back my mom purchased some of their training socks for me (no frills, very cushiony) and I wear them for all my runs/races. I’ve never gotten a blister so I just stuck with them!
Good luck to all the Boston Marathon runners as they prepare for Marathon Monday (shout out to Pam and JR)!
