Why: The past few months have been a whirlwind, but I am happy to share I have officially earned an MS in Kinesiology. With this in mind, the next few weeks hold very exciting things.
First and foremost, in the absence of homework, I am eager to share more consistent What I Wore (On My Run) posts. Second, as of early August, the scenery of my posts will be changing to the gorgeous, mountainous backdrop of Salt Lake City, Utah!
Between apartment hunting, packing, and visiting family and friends, the next month will undoubtedly be a blur of excitement and stress. Despite this, running is the last thing that will be cut from my daily routine. Much like I have mentioned in the past, the busier and more stressful my schedule, the more critical running and exercise is to my sense of well-being. I also want to enjoy as much sea level training as I can before the move!
For today’s run along the hilly shore of Lake Monroe, I wore this fun new Nike skort. Incredibly practical for both running and casual wear, the skort is composed of a thin outer skirt and a pair of yellow, gusset-lined, spandex shorts. With lots of storage, the skort has a zippered key pocket in the back and two large side pockets. As a comfortable and flattering piece, the only drawback is the side pockets lack closures, causing them to be risky to use during a run.
While I typically dislike mixing brands, I found my Adidas Fave Run Tee to be a perfect match with this skort. With two other colors also in my closet, I love the soft feel of this shirt; although I have found the tight weave of the fabric to be a bit stifling on hot, sunny days. Had I purchased a Nike top to correspond with the skort, I would have opted for the thin, breathable Miler Running Shirt.
It is bound to be a short and busy summer, but I am so excited to embrace the next few weeks as I prepare to move! Until then, anyone have tips on places to run or things to see in Salt Lake City?
