Of course this means one day closer to my BIG race, but not much I can do at this point. Well, except eat Cheez-Its and panic.
So in order to divert my attention away from a post about panic and thoughts of riding so long on the bike with so many other people, let’s have a give away!
Champion was so cool to send me a pair of shorts and a jacket for review/give away. I decided to test out the shorts and give the jacket away. That’s how I nice I am.
I got up at the butt crack ‘o dawn yesterday to run and made P-Funk take a photo of me in the YMCA parking lot. We were giggling as she took the photo because A. it was way too early for photos and B. I made her take a pic of my butt.
See how cute the shorts are? And they were really light. Plus I love the pocket in the back for the key. Theses shorts are awesome and I would totally buy them. They also have some reflective stuff on them so that when you are running at O’ Dark Thirty you are more visible. (I must also add that I truly love the Champion Sports Bras at Target. I know that the Redhead does too!)
As for the jacket, I haven’t worn it out of consideration for the winner and didn’t want to get my boob sweat all up in it. Whoever wins it will just have to let us know how it is.
Here are the deets on the jacket:
Champion Double Dry Ultimate All-Weather Soft-Shell Women’s Jacket
Super-soft bonded shell resists both wind and water…protects you from cold and chill…wicks moisture to keep you dry.
Sleek ergonomic seams streamline your silhouette. (They’re triple-stitched for strength and flat-locked for non-chafe comfort.)
Details make the difference: tag-free fabric-taped mock-neck; invisible zippered pockets; zip-up media pocket; white reflective details; full-length lock-down zipper with gel pull and cozy storm flap.
The jacket is a women’s small so if it’s not your size or you prefer to wear men’s stuff, you know, like, if you’re a dude and all, then stand by for a more gender neutral give away next week.

Go to the Champion website and tell me what other items you’d like to try. And become a fan of their facebook page, I am! (You can facebook them from their website.) I’ll choose a winner on Monday.
Oh, and one more thing, What are you thankful for today?
Eat Cheez its and panic. Adding that to the "to do" list for my race – ha ha! Love Champion gear. I have their knee pants which also have a little key pocket in the back. Best thing ever!
I like the shorts you tested Champion Double Dry Sprint Women's Shorts, I think that small pocket should be a requirement in shorts these days. I love their sports bras.
I am THANKFUL that no tornadoes touched down near me! But praying for those effected by them.
Cute shorts! Jacket is too small for me so count me out. 🙂 Good luck with the race this weekend!
I like their fitted pants I actually have a pair that I use all the time! Hey and it's actually Thurs. today 🙂 I'm thankful for nice weather on Saturday, I hope!!
I love those shorts, and I love the Target bras too. Today I am thankful to have so many other options to choose from since I didn't get in to the NYC Marathon. Good luck on your event this weekend!
the jacket looks perfect for all the crazy spring weather we've been having! I think the Champion Seamless Empire Long Top also looks super cute to try!!
I would try these: Champion Double Dry® Cotton SEMI-FITTED Women's Shorts.
Enjoy those Cheez-its — and the race!
Their relaxed fit training pants look RAD!
Today I am thankful that I live in a place where the weather is so beautiful. It's sunny and warm in L.A. today. Yay!
Cute shorts for a cute butt
I need some of their strappy sports bras! cutes!
TONS of luck to you this weekend!!
I'm thankful that I have a job that allows me to grab a quick 20 winks when I'm wiped from half IM training (see: today).
I'd like to try the Powersleek sports bra because according to their site it offers maximum support…and let's just say that certain funcions of motherhood mean that I need that maximum support. ; )
Good luck for the upcoming race.
I would get the sports bra! Love those shorts too…going to facebook to like them!
followed you from caution: red head running!
I like their "runner in motion" graphic
i don't really need another jacket of that type so i will pass, but thanks for the offer 🙂 i reallllly like the shorts.
I would love a new running jacket!
I am already a big fan of Champion gear – my fave sports bra is one of theirs. I saw a super cute dip-dyed sports bra on their website I would love to try too. Maybe I'd even let it come out of hiding. Yeah, right – shirts for me!
I'm thankful for my boyfriend taking care of me while I'm sick.
Lots of the Champion gear looks great, especially the double dry tanks and sports bras (of course!)
