Well, guys, I've officially entered the phase of craziness where I wear and wash my running clothes so much they're usually unavailable when I need them! I have to hang them dry in the shower at night and run in them damp sometimes! Dude!
Enter my old friend, Target:
I have had a Lululemon shirt (I ended up selling it on eBay because it was long-sleeved and I never wore it. And for $68 bucks I should have been wearing it DAILY!). It was nice! Yes! I concede that Lululemon stuff is nice! But the prices are just not justifiable for me ... I need at least 4 complete sets of workout clothes to get me through a week of marathon training. I have had many inexpensive pieces from Target and Nike last me over a year and they suit me just fine.
I was out with the kids earlier this week and I knew I needed to pick up a few short-sleeved shirts to replace my heavily-rotated tank tops because I'm getting too much sun on my chest and shoulders even with 70 SPF. And the last time I ran in a cotton t-shirt I got all these little weird chafed spots! Dude! Not cool! It looked like these shirts had just been put out (there were plenty in my size!). I grabbed a grey one and my daughter chose a neon pink one for me.
I LOVE these shirts! First of all, you can't beat the price at just $12.99. There's a variety of fun colors, they are super light and breathable and truthfully labeled "loose fit." They have a very comfortable a-line shape that doesn't bunch up around the waist, the arms aren't pinchy ... I could go on. If you're looking for a bargain workout shirt that goes the distance, this one's your girl.
