Race Ready + New Knitted Textures From lululemon athletica

There is something about a fresh-off-the-rack new race day tank that gets me super pumped to run thirteen point one. So I headed over to lululemon Leawood to get race ready and do a little collaboration featuring their fall goodies.

That includes their new (oh so comfy) knitted textures. The new Jacquard line is inspired by a vintage piece of distressed leather. They wanted to bring texture and depth to the 2016 fall collection. The Jacquard technique is not new but the process is a weaving technique that uses different color (nylon) threads to create a specific pattern. Each individual thread is dyed and then knitted to form awesome textured effects. This gives each garment a unique (and super soft) texture.

Here is a sneak preview of all my favorites. For the Go Girl Run this weekend, I ended up with the red number below. Red is a color that represents energy, strength, power and determination. All things I will need come Sunday!


Top: Fast As Light 2-In-1 Tank {designed for training and running, this breezy tank is made from lycra technology to stretch and shape retention. This medium support tank has a built in bra + removable cups}

Pants: Outrun 17″ Crop {designed for running with reflectivity to help keep you visible and the design gives you a hugged sensation–engineered to feel like a comfortable embrace throughout. Holds you close and moves with you}


Bra: Jacquard Circuit Breaker Bra {designed for high-impact workouts this bra is stylish and super duper soft. It is also flattering on the back–a must!}

Tights: Jacquard Pace Rival Crop {designed for running  with lots of low-bounce pockets that give you plenty of storage options for phone, keys, cards what have you}

Tank: Essential Tank {designed with silverscent technology powered by x-static, which inhibits the growth of odor-causing bacteria to keep you smelling fresh}


Tank/Bra combo: Essential Tank + Free to Be Bra {a strappy, open back bra for small support. Perfect for yoga or adding a little flare to any tank}

Shorts: City Sky Run By Short {super lightweight mesh-type layering gives these shorts dimension without adding bulk. Designed with hidden pocket in the underneath biker short}


Jacket: Belle Jacket {belle is my middle name but regardless this lightweight jacket is adorable. This hip length jacket has a slim fit to help keep core heat close. There is also a hidden media sleeve to keep your phone in place}

Oh and if you want to register for the Go Girl Run, there is still time + you can use GGRKirsten for 15% off the 5k or half. Come race with me!
