Run easy, paint a picture and Wantable!!!!

The treadmill and I are still at odds.  I am very sure I want the roads to stay clear so I can run outside more often and not have to worry about the traffic out where I live.  On Friday and Saturday the roads near me where still mostly covered with a snow/slush/icy mix that I just didn’t trust to run on.  I know that I would have been able to physically run on it no problem, but trusting drivers is a whole different story.  I know that people drive too fast and don’t pay enough attention.  With there not being room to get over due to the snow I prefer just to wait it out.
Friday was 4 easy miles and by easy I mean slow, very slow!  It was probably the hardest run of the week, trying to get my body to go at a slower pace is never easy.  I know I need to do this but it is still hard!!  So when it was time for my long run Saturday my legs were happy to pick up the pace!!!     
Over the weekend I tried something I have never done.  I attended a wine and canvas.  A friend of mine was supposed to go and couldn’t make it, so she offered her ticket to me and I thought heck….why not!  I found out that I am not an artist…but that is OK!!!

My little lady loved it and now has it hanging on her wall!  HA!  Jenni’s looked much better than mine!
The weekend also had a little treat in store for me!  As you know I run and runners need new running attire!  I discovered Wantable last week and just HAD to try it out.  Well, Saturday my first shipment arrived and I am in LOVE with this service!!!  It is very comparable to StitchFix but for fitness apparel!!!!  They have different types of items you can choose from (make-up, accessories, intimates and fitness apparel) and I picked what they call the Fitness Edit.  I filled out some information in regards to sizing, colors I like, styles I prefer and what I really am looking for.  A stylist then chose 5 items for me and they were delivered Saturday!!  So now let me fill you in on what I thought!
They do a great job packaging everything so it is like you received a personal gift!  Inside is your 5 items, a return label for anything you don’t like/want/need and a description of each item. 
I was sent 2 tanks, a hoodie, sports bra and a pair of capris.
I am no model but wanted you to see how well everything fit!!
The capris are by Body Language and they are a perfect fit!  I mean perfect!  I have never put on a pair of capris and liked them this much…it was weird though when I first saw them I wasn’t a fan.  It wasn’t until I put them on that I loved them.  The bra is by Climawear and it is great!  It has adjustable straps so the fit is perfect!  Both tanks are great too, the black/white is by Climawear and the Red by NUX.  They are both soft, the black/white has a built in bra while the red does not.  The hoodie is by Rebecca Michaels and so soft it is crazy.
However, no matter how soft they all are and how perfect they got the fit, I am not keeping them all.  I am returning the hoodie.  It is just not me.  I like the feel and it fits great it just isn’t something I am going to wear for any purpose at all. 
With Wantable you can send back anything you don’t want to keep at no cost to you.  If you keep all 5 you receive 30% off, if you keep 3-4, 20% off.  Being the hoodie is the only item I am returning I feel good about the investment and am super excited to get my next shipment!!!!!  Oh, I also forgot to mention, I am loving trying new brands.  Sometimes I get so stuck on what I like I forget other brands have really good stuff too!!!
I am not affiliated with Wantable…I just really liked this shipment!!!!
Have you ever done a Wine and Canvas?
Did you know about Wantable?

  1. Wantable sounds great…However, I have a birthday coming up and my hubby always gets me a LOT of running gear (Yay!). I feel like I would need to try something like stich fix for my regular clothes. Why, because I just always wear workout clothes!!
    I have never been to one of those painting parties, sound fun!
    I hear you on the danger of being on the roads with the snow–Always better to be safe!


  2. I once did a Paint Nite event with a friend….and we painted that exact same painting!!! So funny!

    I've been running outside but I'm actually looking forward to going back inside for the track and mill. Never thought I'd say that, but I'm just so over the cold and the slush and the snow. Ugh.


  3. Learning to keep easy runs easy was hard for me. I'm definitely still working on it. The Wantables shipment looks fun! I might have to cheat on StitchFix and check it out 🙂
