Fitness Friday: Some New Favorites

Happy Friday!

It's Teacher Workshop Day at school today, so I'm enjoying an extra cup of coffee before heading to work.

Today seemed like a great day to SHARE the great new fitness items I've discovered recently - just in case you are looking for gift ideas for the runner in your life!

Under Armour Perfect Duffle:

For the last couple of months, I have been participating in Under Armour's #SweatADay Challenges. A few weeks ago I was selected as a weekly winner and UA sent me a bunch of awesome gear. My favorite piece turned out to be the Under Armour Perfect Duffle. I love all the space it offers and that it's fashionable.

Athleta Polartec Tights:

I like to run all year round and since I live in New Hampshire that means that I'll be running in the cold and snow. Last month I received a pair of Polartec Power Stretch 2 Tights while working on a campaign with FitFluential and Athleta. These running pants are fleece on the inside and super toasty. After wearing them a few times now, I know that I need to save them for the under 20 degree days.

Mizuno Wave Rider 17

I've been a fan of Mizuno since getting fit for my first pair of Wave Riders at my local running store. My Mizuno friend Lori Ann was generous enough to send me a sneak peak pair of the new Wave Rider 17s and they are even more amazing than my others. I love, love the slate color and the all new springy sock liner. They are available in stores today.

FitSnap App

The creator of this iPhone photo app reached out to me and I'm so glad that he did. This app lets you add workout data (distance, duration, yoga pose, comments) to your photos and offers themes like running and yoga - with more coming soon. The inspirational photos can be shared easily from your iPhone to Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. It's also easy to save to your camera roll or share through airdrop (mrC loves this feature). The photos look amazing and there are 8 filters to help make them even more amazing. (Check out all the photos in this post!)

Chilly Challenge!!

My new favorite challenge is MY OWN! Sunday marked the start of my Instagram challenge and I'm super excited to be giving away a pair of Mizuno Wave Rider 17s. I am so impressed with the photos posted by the participants so far (like the one below). Want to play along? Check out all the details here.

What's on your favorites list right now?
