As part of my new year resolution I will try to incorporate fitness in my life as much as possible and start a fitness fashion series to keep myself accountable. These series will be a reminder for myself that I should stay committed to my exercise routine. (I know how hard this can be for all of us, at least it is for me). My hope is maybe the series will also inspire you to get back into or stay on course with yours. <3

Running has always had a special place in my heart. I ran track for school in my teenage years, became really competitive in team races, and used running as a warm up for various athletic endeavors. After college though my interests shifted to fitness and exercise classes as the main motivation was being social with friends; and I got disconnected from running.
I reunited with it a couple years ago. After my youngest two were born I was so happy but super exhausted. I also had this feeling of feeling distant from a lot of things I used to really enjoy. At times like this, sometimes it is best to go back to what you loved as a child to bring back that joy into your life, and that’s exactly what I did.
Running makes me feel free, and independent. I like being out in the trails when I only hear my own footsteps and clear my head from all the little stresses of the daily life.
I am huge believer that exercise a couple of days a week is the best stress reliever, and of course all the health & physical benefits are a huge bonus. I try to choose my exercise clothes keeping their practical use in mind, be it comfort, staying dry, or ease of movement, as well as the style.
Do you exercise? What’s your go to fitness routine that makes you feel great?
