Race Day Essentials #3 {Giveaway and Winner}

Let’s talk running clothes.  I mean this is a running AND fashion blog after all (although I admit, the fashion has been lacking a little lately).  I’ve gone back and forth over the years as to what I prefer to wear to run.  At one point, hell bent on having my outfits match and at another, determined they wouldn’t match just to prove I was a “serious” athlete. HA!  Somewhere along the line, I actually did become more serious about running and realized form/function trumps fashion when it comes to running gear.  Luckily, thanks to the women of Oiselle, you can have BOTH!  I know, I know, I run for Oiselle so of course I’m going to tout their products.  Well, I wouldn’t have applied for the team if I didn’t believe in the goods!

When it comes to marathons (and marathon training), my gear has to be comfortable and able to withstand hours of running, coupled with bouts of irritability and tears with no chafing and no riding up (seriously, who want to be adjusting their gear in the middle of a long run/race?).  If you’re like me, it also has to handle copious amounts of sweat without becoming heavy.  That magic for me is found in the Roga short.

The Rogas have a super soft/no elastic waistband that’s perfect for chafe-prone people.  They are also super soft (like wearing PJs- or maybe even nothing at all) and light weight.  I have worn them on even the hottest of southern days and not felt like they were heavy.

Terrible selfie post hot run- August 2012.  You can see how soaked my shirt is and the rogas look unfazed.

Have I convinced you yet?  Want to try the shorts that sparked the #rogarevolution ? Well, today’s your lucky day!  I’m giving away a pair to 1 lucky reader.

Required:  To enter, go to Oiselle and leave a comment telling me Roga color you’d like to try and/or add to your collection (standard colors only- sorry no diamonds).

+1: Follow Oiselle on Twitter
+1: Follow Oiselle on Facebook

*Note: Although I run for Oiselle as part of their ambassador Oiselle Team,  I did not receive compensation for providing this review- I just love the shorts/brand!  Oiselle is kindly providing (donating/giving) the winner a pair of Rogas!  Contest open to US residents/addresses only- ends Friday, April 26th 9am.


According to the highly intelligent random.org, the winner of yesterday’s Picky Bars giveaway is:
