I’m at it again! I love running clothes the way some people like shoes (oh wait, I like those too). Every now and then I can afford to splurge and others times I need to save. Here are two outfits that look very similar but have two different price points. How about you, splurge or save?
My model is Alison
Bra (C9): $18.99
Top (C9): $17.48
Shorts (C9): $16.99
Bra (Under Armour): $57.99
Top (Nike): $42.00
Shorts (Nike): $58.00
Outfit A was purchased at Target and is all C9 by Champion. Alison said that the C9 top felt more fitted and the shorts do not have a liner or pockets (nothing to stash keys or Gu’s in) so might be better on a shorter run.
Outfit B was purchased at Dick’s Sporting Goods. The shorts do have a pair of built in “boy-shorts” underneath the top layer. These are Tennis shorts, but I just ran the Cherry Blossom 10 miler in them and they are stellar to run in. In fact, I had a PR that day.
These are both great outfits to run in. So no matter what your budget, you can always look and feel good when you go out for run or race. When you look nice, it makes you feel good inside and, I personally think that helps you run your best – especially on race day.
Which one do you think you would get?
