Ahhhh......TGIF! Somehow I had an insane day, and I'm still working late! Boo ending fiscal years at work! It will all be over soon though :)

Last night I had an amazing 6 mile late night run. There is something about running at night that I love....possibly it could be the fact that I am a night owl and insomniac, but I'm just guessing :) Luckily it was pretty warm and the moon was even out! The area I was running was very well lit and has a large curb and walking/running/wheels lanes so it is safe from traffic.  

"Dancing Running in the moonlight"

Either running at night or in the cold brings me to my next point - Spotlight on: 

The Under Armour Long sleeved Ts! I am absolutely crazy about this shirt that I bought a few months ago from Nordstrom. The UA TNP Long sleeved T is apparently part of their Heatgear line, which keeps you super warm. Whether it be running in the cold, wind OR rain, I have LOVED running in it. I sort of feel like a REAL professional runner/super hero in spandex while wearing it. 

The shirt is 95% Polyester/ 5% Elastane which seems to stay in place while running (meaning you wont run a few miles only to find your shirt is slowly crawling up your midsection!) It also has a 4 way stretch, yet is not too tight, which feels awesome while running long distances. I seriously need to buy more of these.....I mean, it got me through my first half:

The Under Armour tee retails at $29.99, and is worth every penny for its stretchy goodness. I might just have to pick another one up to run in tonight! Hope everyone has a great weekend!!

  1. My husband is an insomniac too! I love the morning workouts, but I just seem to run out of time in the morning. I hope that you have a great weekend!

  2. Hehehe. "Stretchy goodness." I like it!

  3. Great run, Sarah! Under Armour is one of my favorite brands for compression shirts and the like. I don't mean to be a buzzkill, but the HeatGear line is actually for the summer/hot months and ColdGear is for keeping you warm. (It's a weird way of putting it though). I used my HeatGear long sleeve compression shirt on a long/rainy run and was terribly freezing! Oh gosh! It keeps you cool, for sure.

    And you asked about running with a's FANTASTIC for running in the rain. It keeps the rain out of your eyes and it's comfy too. The Nike one I have I got at Nordies and it's one of my faves. I highly recommend it for rainy runs. :)

  4. Hi Zoe! No way...the salesgirl told me it was for winter!! I bought it 2 days before the Seattle Half! Its been working for me through this winter, but that is good to know!! :)
