I often feel like a toddler or Dory from "Finding Nemo," my attention distracted by all things shiny and new. The other day, the onions I was sauteing for pasta sauce nearly burned because I was drooling over the dresses and boots in the new J. Crew catalog. I rarely buy something new for myself, but when I splurge, a new sweater can make me as giddy as tween at a Taylor Swift concert.
When I get new workout wear, I can barely wait to break a sweat. There are still miles to run and squats to count out, but the anticipation for the new duds makes me feel like I'll float through the workout. Like last week at boot camp: I take a women's only class at 9:30 every Wednesday morning, prime fashion show potential. I skipped off to class in my FreeMotion capris and colorful FreeMotion tank, giggly and beaming a big grin. I don't have empirical data to support my claim, but I swear I busted out more reps and held those side plank a few....seconds....longer thanks to my sassy new outfit.
We want to share the giddy feeling: FreeMotion has generously offered to give away an outfit--capris + choice of one of two tank tops--to three lucky ladies. Not exactly what you'll be running in outside these days, but they'll brighten up your visits to the gym or treadmill runs. To enter to win, tell us what puts a spring in your step during workout. New apparel? A fresh playlist? A running buddy? We'll announce three random winners on Saturday. Giddy up!
