Once we finally decided on our outfits, we headed to Central Park to try them out. Run Coach and blogger, Gia had us do 8 x 400m and I ran most of it with Meghan, who lives at Mile 7. Yup, we speak in marathon route now. We were the last two to finish, but that's okay. We are tapering! After the run, we headed back to the store for snacks. They were nice enough to provide some yummy treats before we sat down for an interesting discussion.
|I heart snacks.|
First, the staff explained how the store started in a yoga studio and how they prefer grassroots advertising in lieu of giant billboards, an approach that is obviously working for them. Secondly, we talked about trends in fitness and things that we look for in running apparel. I found this to be a great opportunity to tell the people who can make a difference what we want from our running clothes.

After I explained my need for running shorts with a thong and Gia expressed desire for a sparkly marathon line, we each went our separate ways. I had a long ride home, but my new amazing jacket kept me in warm company.
|Can I wear it everyday please?|
Thank you so much Lululemon! I’m here whenever you need me.
