Friday's Workout: 6.8 mile easy run
Thursday like usual I met up with Kara and Angela for our speedy work.. but our group is growing. We now have two more regulars - Rachel and Danielle. I love that our speed work group is going. I also love how much fun it is to be on the track helping my friends get faster and see them benefitting from it!
After out track workout I went to the Beaverton Portland Running Company store to check out the weekly women's run that is Thursday evenings at 6pm. I was lucky that my first night there they were also having one of their monthly events!
I walked in and immediately saw a table with a sign in, some GUs and raffle tickets. They also had some extra reflective gear that people could borrow if they didn't have any.
Moving Comfort and their products. I have three Moving Comfort bras and I love them. I didn't know that they were made just north in Washington! I also didn't realize that they had other products and would love to try them out.
After hearing about the products and that 8/10 women are wearing an ill fitting sports bra I figured that I needed to get measured and correctly fitted. Theresa didn't even have to measure me to notice that my size was all wrong.
My first MC bra was a 34 C which was close to my regular bra size - 34D - just a little more snug. Recently my bust has been shrinking so when I most recently bought a new sports bra I went with a 34 B. I still received some chaffing right along my bra line. I have taken this chaffing to just be the norm and something that I can't avoid and just need to live with. In reality my bra size is to blame. Once I get my allowance and purchase my "prescription" I will be chaffe free!
After the measuring we headed out for a fantastic 6.7 miles around familiar territory (I live nearish to the store)

We came back to wine, cheese, chocolate and a swag bag! It was super fun to drink wine and eat cheese while raffle tickets were drawn - I didn't win but I still felt like a winner with my SWAG!
