Fitness Friday: Christmas Favorites

For Christmas this year, I was pleasantly surprised with several running related items. Santa was a rock star this year (as usual) and completely outdid himself. Here’s a few of my favorites:

Raw Threads Princess in Training Hoodie

I was first introduced to Raw Threads at the 2013 Disney World Marathon Weekend Expo when the runDisney booth ran out of Goofy Merchandise. Raw Threads had 39.3 shirts available, so I bought one and I fell in love. I absolutely love the material of their clothing. It’s very lightweight and incredibly soft. Raw Threads also offers a wide variety of tops/clothing for your favorite runDisney race. Looking to dress as a Princess for Princess Weekend? Check out their Princess Tops. Want to dress as your favorite Villain for your next runDisney race? Check out their selection of Villain collection!  The variety and selection is (almost) endless. I cannot say enough good things about this company.

I’m running the Glass Slipper Challenge during Princess Weekend in Disney World, so I’m warning you now, you will see this shirt a LOT over the next few months! :0)

I was SO excited to see this Raw Threads Princess hoodie in the box I unwrapped!  Insert: awkward looking surprise face.

Rumble Roller

Do not let this “foam roller” fool you – it IS every bit as painful as it looks. Why did I ask for a Rumble Roller Christmas? Well, I saw this bad boy in Dick’s Sporting Goods one day and decided to give it a whirl. I had two requirements I was looking for in a foam roller – I wanted one that wouldn’t break down as quickly as my other foam rollers had in the past and it needed to give me a bit of a deeper massage than my other rollers. Hopefully this one will do the trick!

Mizuno Wave Inspire 9’s

The final gift on my fitness favorites list is my brand new Mizuno Wave Inspire 9’s. I began running in Mizuno’s when the Mezamashii Project was introduced. While waiting for the brand new Wave Paradox, being introduced in January (which is replacing my old shoe, the Wave Nirvana), I’m wearing Wave Inspire’s in the interim. Got it? That’s a lot of Wave’s! :0)

Mizuno Wave Inspire Shoe

This color is absolutely my favorite!

After opening a few gifts for themselves, my dogs thought EVERY gift was for them! It was really funny!

I actually received 2 pair of Wave Inspires – one from my parents and the other from Jason. I kind of already started running in my pair from Jason a few weeks ago…

mizuno Wave inspire 4

….so what I received was an empty box! Yeah, whoops.

I’m very excited to continue running in these and can’t wait for the brand new Mizuno Wave Paradox (although I’m all set for a little while)!

Did you receive any fitness related items for Christmas? Please share! I want to hear all about your new goodies!

  5. I love the look on your face when you opened your hoodie. So cute!

    I got a Garmin Forerunner 220, which is super awesome. I sort of ruined the surprise for my husband as I tried to get it myself a few weeks before and had to come clean. I

    I am scared of that Rumble Roller! I barely use my foam roller (though I should). I'll be interested in how you like it.

  6. My dogs did the same thing Karen! They were crazyexcited about all the gifts because they thought they all had treats in them! My oldest dog actually got excited when I started taking the stockings down, I guess she remembered from last year???

  7. Love that you were super excited and surprised to get the hoodie! I love surprises too! I received several running items ( lots of clothes, cold weather accessories, and some running jewelry). One of our older labs loved opening gifts too and thought everything was for her! The lab we have now could care less about opening gifts so she let's our other dog open them and then she runs off with the present!
