The weather here has been so weird lately – one day it’s balmy, the next it’s frigid. What the heck, mother nature?
Last Thursday morning was one of those frigid days. Thankfully, I had some cozy accessories (which you’ll have a chance to win at the end of this post!) from my friends at Brooks to keep me warm!
Above I’m rocking the Utopia Thermal Headband – so cute, right? Stayed put nicely too! On my feet, I had the Essential Low Cut Tab socks on – my faves. On my hands, the Utopia Softshell Gloves:
I was also rocking the PureProject Warmer, which was awesome! I remember last year while running during the Polar Vortex I was cozy in all my gear with the exception of my butt/hips, which got super cold.
This won’t be a problem anymore! The warmer is one size fits all and you cinch it in with a drawstring. Didn’t budge during our run and kept me nice and cozy, too. It’s super soft material!
After the run, Sokphal and I experimented other uses for it. Hat? Neck warmer? You decide… 😉 (Yes, we’re weird.)
As for the actual run, we had a good one! The sunrise was gorgeous and while it was windy and cold, it felt nice to be out and getting some fresh air.
We had the whole place to ourselves! 🙂
5.3 miles – great run and fun to catch up my friend Sokphal, who has been traveling/out of town for awhile!
And now, it’s your turn to win some cozy Brooks running accessories – whether to keep for yourself or to gift to your favorite runner. 🙂
Here’s what one lucky fANNEtastic reader will win, in their choice of sizes/colors:
- PureProject Warmer
- Utopia Thermal Headband
- Essential Low Cut Tab socks
- Utopia Softshell Gloves – just an FYI that these gloves run large, so I’d size down in them if you can! (My tiny hands could have used an XS – Brooks, please start making XS gloves!)
To enter to win, simply follow the instructions in the Rafflecopter giveaway widget below. The only required form of contest entry is leaving a comment on this blog post with what your run happy resolutions are for 2015 – how do you plan to run happy in the new year? After you comment, you can get extra entries with some social media shares/likes, etc. Good luck! 🙂
p.s. Looking for some other holiday gift ideas for runners? A few other favorites of mine from Brooks lately are the Utopia Thermal Tight II (sooo cozy and love the pockets – I’m wearing them in this post), Adapt Jacket (REALLY warm and comfortable – will be great for super cold runs!), and LSD Lite Vest II. I’m also a long time lover of the Essential 1/2 Zip and the Infiniti Anorak (love the ruffles – it’s the pink top I’m wearing in the photos in this post!); I have both in multiple colors so you see them a lot here on the blog!
