Hit The Ground Running In The Under Armour Charge RC

Under Armour Charge RCUnder Armour recently sent me a pair of their Charge RC running shoes. Now I wouldn’t exactly call myself the next Prefontaine but I certainly wont pass up a great shoe and having a shoe like the Charge RC definitely made my workout more enjoyable and if anything else, at least I looked good.

Yesterday was chilly but the sun was shinning so I headed out on a run through the neighborhood. The shoe was super light so it didn’t feel like I was lugging around unnecessary weight which was great. I would say the shoe fits fairly true to size since I ordered my regular size 6 and it fit perfectly (they go down to a size 5). Overall, the shoe feels very natural and almost barefoot like (without looking like you’re wearing those weird looking “toe shoes”) but still provides a great layer of cushion and support.

You can check out all the details of the shoe here and I’ve posted a video below with more information as well (because lets face it, I really don’t know all the scientific details) all I know for sure is that they’re super comfortable and make me look like I know what I’m doing in the gym…

A+ for Under Armour!

Lululemon Athletic: Does It Work For Petites?

LululemonI. Heart. Lululemon.

When I first came across Lululemon I thought I’d died and gone to heaven. For some reason I always thought I could get away with buying cheaper athletic wear (er…maybe because the gym wasn’t exactly my best friend) but now, after numerous embarrassing holes in my t-shirts and piling on my yoga pants — I get it. Lululemon has everything you need and more. The quality of their garments is impeccable and you might have to pay a little more but it’s so worth it because they’ll last for a long long time.

Now, lets talk fit. Their “regular” pants seem to fit me when I have my shoes on but some I’ve still have to have hemmed. What have you experienced? What I don’t get is why they make “regular” and “tall” yet they don’t have a “petite” or even “short” size for that matter. Call it what you want, I think they need it!

Do their pants work for you? What have you experienced?

I visited a Lululemon outlet store recently and then realized they have the same outlet product online too so if you love Lululemon but you want it at a discount take a look at the “we made too much” section! Here’s a look at their size chart below too to get an idea of what might work for you.
