With my brain full of random detritus (a sample from today: get frozen pancakes at the store, pick up dog piles in the yard before garbage man comes, remember how to ), I'm not certain about many things these days.
But there are two things I can say with certainty:
1. This winter, Mother Nature is definitely not a mother runner. She may run in other seasons, but something—an injured IT band?, a new baby?—has set her off. I cringe everytime I hear "6 to 8 inches of snow," even if the flakes are falling nowhere near me.
2. Nothing I love better than a good blue technical hoody. Screams spring to me. Could be the optmistic color, could be the multitasking abilities of it, could be that when I'm wearing it, I'm proclaiming I.don't.need.a.jacket.—and I'm flipping you a robin of a bird, Ma Nature!)
So we're thrilled to kick off our first Saucony giveaway of 2014 with The Transition Hoody, a dreamy, technical, lightweight hoody that wicks sweat capably, sports the necessary thumbholes and small pocket, and just yells for warmer temps and brighter days. (CAN YOU HEAR IT, MOTHER N.?) And at $55, it doesn't break the bank if you're, ahem, looking for a piece of running gear to reward you for getting through the Polar Vortex. Again. And again. And again.
You're going to need something to go under that hoodie, of course, and on your bottom half, unless you're looking to imitate the pantless runner parading around Portland. Saucony has you covered.
A workhorse of a tech tee, the Hydralite Short Sleeve, made from 50% recycled polyester, is a serious sweat wicker, as well as seriously flattering: the seams on the relaxed-fit tee do any body good.
The Scoot LX Capris are another perfect compliment to spring: long enough to keep most of your lower half covered, but short enough for your ankles to celebrate the fresh, crisp air. Made with an extra supportive Powerknit EX polyester/spandex blend and sporting a zippered key pocket and flattering waistband, the Scoots add mph to any forward motion.
So these three lovely pieces from Saucony's spring wardrobe will help a lucky, random mother runner spring into spring. In order to be entered to win, please fill in this blank in the comments below: When it comes to running gear, nothing I love better than a _______________.
