Went on a bit of a running "shopping spree" on Friday due to it being August and that's when those wonderful sales on summer gear start before all that "back to school" cr*p starts.
I got alot of wonderful stuff at Sportsmart at Gloucester Centre in Ottawa (but there are alot of Sportsmarts around). They have alot of stuff marked down 50%.
I got an Adidas s/s tech Clima365 hoodie in grey/aqua for $20 (reg $39), 2 Nike dryfit s/s shirts in a dark violet and a lime green for $20 (reg $39), a Adidas Clima365 s/s in a really cool dark lime for $19, a Nike Pro sports bra for $20 (reg $39). I got a Nike dryfit s/s shirt there 2 weeks ago for $29, so the prices are further marked down this week. I don't like the shoe selection there though.
I went to Lululemon and got two bounce breaker sports bras because I keep losing weight (that is good) and running bras are expensive. These are adjustable by quite alot and by running in one yesterday, they are really great and I highly recommend them. The price was nasty (they were about $50 each - and weren't on sale) but I would get these again. I was told that there was a sale there but there was very few things marked down there and only by about $10 and limited size and colour selections were on sale.
Got some great running capris (okay, so they are yoga capris, but they are soooo comfortable and have these little pockets . . . ) at Old Navy, which also has some great sales in their summer clothes. I paid about $15 each for them as opposed to almost the same capris at Lululemon for $85. They have some good, cheap athletic wear if you look hard enough.
I went to Running Room also and got the New Balance Biocool Bamboo shirt (which wasn't on sale) but it felt sooooo good on my skin and I had to get it and I am glad I did. I also looked into getting another pair of Adidas Adistar Comfort 6 before they went away. I saw one on the display shelf, so I started getting excited that they would have a pair, but they didn't have one in my size (size 9). I hope I can get another pair before mine wear out and they go extinct.
Well, that's my shopping day on Friday! Hit lots of clothing sales!
