If you’ve seen any of my latest race photos, you know a few things about me…
1. I like to wear costumes and/or otherwise obnoxiously noticeable running attire on race day (and sometimes during training runs)
2. I’m a total spaz.
The 2nd point has little to nothing to do with this post – but lets talk about number 1 a little more.
Yes, I love a good theme race so that I can plan out the most theme-y costume. I’ve been a cow, Santa, a Bunny, an Elf, head to toe red, white and blue, I’ve worn sparkles, a toga, arm warmers, tiaras…. I love to stand out in a crowd on race day
It was no wonder when I found out about INKnBURN from one of my favorite bloggers Stet That Run I was SOLD on the totally funky Peacock running gear Iris was sporting. She hosted a giveaway and OMG I stinkin won that thing!!! I totally scored a pair of 4Arms running sleeves!! WOOT! I never win anything!!!
Although I LOVED the Peacock – I decided I was going to buy the Peacock cami – so I went with the Britney (you know, can’t be TOO matchy matchy) – Figured that would expand my crazy wardrobe selection! When I got them in and put them on they were super comfortable and guess what – NO arm fat hang-over. This is pretty crucially important for me. I don’t like bubbles of skin anywhere. They were tight enough to stay up but without being too tight. Although the website says some people wet them to stay cool in the summer, I think it’s going to be more of a winter-warmth thing – so I haven’t tried them running (yet) – but will come back and edit this when I do this fall!
Let’s move on to the Peacock Cami – After contacting the company about my free sleeves from Stet That Run – They asked if WE wanted to do a product review and giveaway. Um YES!!!!! So I got to try the cami I wanted!! Woo Hoo!
Iris talked about how bright the fabrics were but I was SO shocked to see that the pics on the website totally represented the well – but it was even BETTER in person!! I can’t describe the fabric – but it’s super smooth, kinda shiny (although that’s not a great word) but it’s VERY vivid!!!! It almost looks 3D or something!
I LOVED that it was a little roomy in the belly area – hello – I’m a mom – I’ve had a kid!!! THANK YOU INKnBURN! Loved the feminine spaghetti straps and criss cross back… but one of the coolest features was the little pocket between the boobs for a key, music player, money or something like that! I never have enough pockets and that was a totally cool thing!
I NEVER had any problems with the shirt shifting or sliding up when I ran – it is by far my favorite running tank I own! I love it so much I feel like it needs to be my race uniform or something…. and I even wore it in my finalist photo that was submitted to Women’s Running Magazine (hey, wanna vote for me?? Pam B! I’d love you forever!!)
Side note: Not sure why it looks like my legs are crossing – I’m guessing it was me rounding the corner… anyway – moving on…
Heather got to try the Peacock Skirt and she said it did run a little big. I had a heads up on the cami running loose so I ordered a size down. Something you may want to keep in mind when ordering and determining size!!
AND you have GOT to check out their latest product – the Performance DENIM shorts – yes I said DENIM!!! But only denim in looks – they are performance fabric. Seriously – how cute are these???? If I can get through Insanity and shave off a few inches in the caboose I’m totally getting these!!
I swear they have the NEATEST products!! Shin skins, head bands, jackets, shorts, skirts, tanks, shirts….. you name it – and it’s all totally unique!!!
