Stella McCartney is my hero

I will explain this in detail...Stella McCartney is my hero because she makes a mundane task like working out, fun..at least for me. It is the perfect excuse to get excited about buying and using these cute clothes. Stella McCartney's collection is very comfortable and has very soft neutral colors, usually accentuated with a bright color. This season it's a very vibrant blue. Every season I go to the Adidas website to see what Stella McCartney has brought in. The trick is to get the items on sale at Adidas, on ebay, or at the Adidas outlet. I scored a pair of running pants at the Adidas outlet from last season for $20 USD.

Here comes the real truth...Last year I ran the NYC marathon and was so burnt out from the training that I completely stopped running after the marathon. I forgot why I started running in the first place. But, the Adidas Stella McCartney $20 USD pants singlehandedly brought me back to the feeling. Running feels like...It's just me, sweaty all over, feet pounding on the Central Park pavement, with thoughts running through my mind of everything that happened throughout the day, my mind sorts everything out and then suddenly I realize that my mind is clearer. I'm at the end of my run.
Below are my must get favorite outfits....

Congrats on running the NYC marathon. That's no small accomplishment. I wasn't aware that Stella McCartney designed active wear until I saw the pictures on your website. I've been looking for nice comfortable pieces for yoga. I'll be on the look out for these items.

Running pants for $20? That's a total deal. I usually buy running tights for about $25-$30 at the end of the season, and I thought that was a bargain.

Cute exercise clothes always motivate me to workout!
