Just The Tip Tuesday–#2 Most Important Piece of Running Gear

I think a good running shoe is the most important piece of equipment for a runner. But, a good running sports bra comes in at #2 for girls.

So, when a company hits me up to review their sports bra I gladly accept because they are expensive and I want to save you the trouble of buying a 50 dollar article of clothing that’s not going to do you any favors fucking bra racket Just The Tip Tuesday–#2 Most Important Piece of Running Gear

Today I tried the Jockey Vavavoom sports bra. It’s $42.00 <- see, not an amount of money you want to spend on something unless you’re going to dig it.IMG 1126 800x600 thumb Just The Tip Tuesday–#2 Most Important Piece of Running Gear

Yes, you can buy a $16.00 sports bra from Target, but with those I usually double up so it’s really $32.00 anyway.

I like that it has a vent under the boob area to make it breathable. Also, being a member of the IBTC, I appreciate that it has molded cups so it gives the girls some more girth. 20130219 091301 600x800 thumb Just The Tip Tuesday–#2 Most Important Piece of Running Gear

And it has a clasp back – that is my new favorite thing in sports bras lately. I don’t like that it just comes in black or white – 2 sad color options, what is this?! back copy thumb Just The Tip Tuesday–#2 Most Important Piece of Running Gear

Just the Tip: Take care of your sports bras by washing them on a gentle cycle and then hanging them to dry – NOT tossing them in the dryer.

I’m also taking this awkward blog post full of topless pics to announce I’m going to take Jillian Michaels 6 Week Six Pack challenge and starting today do her workout 3 times a week for six weeks and report back with my findings. I said I was going to do this at the beginning of February but never did. So, this is my new start!

Does anyone want to do it with me?
