Today I’m sharing the new line from PUMA —IGNITE —featuring their most responsive running shoe ever.


First up is the PR Pure Fitted Short-Sleeve Tee.  I love the color and fit of this workout top.  It’s form-fitting, yet breathable with CoolCELL sweat-wicking fabric and unique mesh inserts that work like vents.  Plus the little cap-sleeves make it slightly unique and a little bit of a different design.


As for the pants, the Pure 3/4 Running Tights hit at a nice length, just a couple of inches below the knee and really accentuate those calf muscles 😉


And the IGNITE running shoe is one that doesn’t necessarily look like your typical, technical running shoe. Instead, it looks sleek and casual, just like a normal sneaker.  The foam insole and sole provide cushioning and comfort, with the special “foreverform” in the heel lessening the impact for those that might be more of a heel-striker.


Become a part of the movement and hashtag #IGNITE[yourcity] and share your running photos and prove that your city is most energized!

“The Under Armour SpeedForm Apollo running shoe is so lightweight, you might even forget you’re wearing shoes! The new ArmourVent upper makes this shoe even more breathable, allowing for your feet to quickly dry on hot days and sweaty sessions. I find it’s the perfect performance shoe for neutral runners, ideal for any fast distance 5k or less.”

I have high friends in high places that work with pretty cool brands like Foot Cardigan 😛 That, and I guess I’m kind of a cool blogger? lolol 😛 😛

Foot Cardigan is a monthly sock subscription, which is like the best thing ever. If you know me, I loooooove patterned socks, maybe a little too much #treatyoself.  Foot Cardigan makes it exciting, sending you random socks every month.  Plus the website is really funny — see for yourself.


Basically, it’s an awesome gift (for you or someone else), the socks are really soft, and who says you can’t base your entire outfit off of what socks you’re wearing?  I know I do!  And (ahem) you can still hook someone up with a subscription for Valentine’s Day with their printable PDF gift certificates (also funny).


What’s your #treatyoself item? // Best Valentine’s Day Gift?



“If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em, right? Ashleigh will run circles around you with a breakfast burrito in one hand, Garmin on the other. The 24-year old San Diego blogger has got the scoop on the latest races, running tips and recipes on her blog Daily Cup of Asheejojo. Our feet hurt just reading it.”  –This is probably the best introduction I’ve ever received/read!

Stop by the Finish Line blog to check out everything on my holiday wish list!


Today, I’m showcasing two different types of looks by PUMA.  The first, performance look, is essential for all types workouts –use it for running, yoga, gym, cross-training — it works well for them all.  The second, fashion comfort, is stylish yet versatile to move with you to-and-from workouts.

Performance Look


 Move 3/4 Capris these capris fit really well.  They stay-in-place and hug your body in all the right areas.


Gym Tank –  this tank has a soft, yet breathable material, criss-cross back and a built-in bra.  This has quickly become one of my favorite workout tanks!


Mobium XT – These shoes are super lightweight, very minimal, and probably best for light runs (on the beach, as shown), or for cross training.  The lower profile works with you to increase agility and enhance your performance.


Fashion Comfort


Progressive Trend Pants These pants are light and breathable, and slide easy right over your workout pants (if necessary).  They’re comfortable, while not being just your basic pants.


French Terry Sweatshirt – This sweatshirt has unique features, like slight cowl neck, thick drawstrings, kangaroo pocket (it’s been a while since I’ve had one of these!) and signature PUMA No.1 logo.


Carson Runner  These shoes are also lightweight, yet I wouldn’t recommend them for running.  They’re a casual shoe perfect for slipping on after your runs or workout, to give your feet a break.


What do you look for in new workout clothes?

Thanks to Danny Chan for the awesome pictures!!!

I don’t always go hiking.  But when I do, I prefer to go barefoot in wool socks 😛  LÄRABARs have been a favorite, clean snack, packing a lot of flavor, in a 9-ingredient (all of which are WHOLE foods) or less bar!  These are my favorite to grab on-the-go, before a run, or on a hike!  Any of the flavors with chocolate chips (such as chocolate chip cookie dough, coconut chocolate chip, etc.) are my favorite.

One of my favorite places to run/hike/explore in San Diego is Torrey Pines.  The views are literally breathtaking (hey, that climb is pretty tough).  So you’ll know where I’ll be for National “Take a Hike Day” on November 17th — outdoors and up Torrey Pines, with a LÄRABAR in hand.  Make sure to take a hike on this special day, and share your experience by using the hashtags #eatclean and #getoutside!

A new addition to the LÄRABAR line is RENOLA, a gluten-free, grain-free “granola” option.  It tastes great all by itself, wrapped in individual packages easy for running out the door.  And it’s also good added to yogurt parfaits.
