Women’s Shorts Are Having A Moment at the 2018 Australian Open

Long time no see, right?

Well I was summoned from my fall/winter slumber by fashion; women’s sports fashion at that.

A few years ago, you only saw one athlete on the WTA Tour wearing shorts during their tennis matches. That was Victoria Azarenka. And sis was working those shorts too. After a match between Serena and Vika, Vika said she’d get Serena a pair of shorts since Serena kept complimenting her pair.

Now, just a couple of years later, errrrrybody is rocking shorts! Nike and Adidas both got the memo and I am so here for it! Adidas even seems to have given the ladies culottes. (Does anyone else call them that? I never called them skorts. My mama called them culottes, so I call them culottes)

My New Fave Sports Commercial

I’ve already talked about my love for Peyton Manning and his hilarious MasterCard spot. How can you not like Peyton? Don’t answer that! I don’t want to hear any “well, he doesn’t play for my team” lame-o excuses.

Anyway, I have a new fave commercial and it stars my favorite NBA baller, King James of the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Behold LeBron’s “Chalk” commercial to promote his Nike Zoom LeBron VI Shoe. And keep your eyes open as Weezy F. makes a cameo. The song is “Candyman” by Cornershop. [Download, Buy Album] Catchy, is it not?

Love it. Very well done, Nike!

P.S. Nike, please stop making those atrocious gold Swingman Jersey jerseys. They hurt my eyes. kthx

New Running Shoes!

I realized that I had been doing a no-no with my Couch to 5k training. I had been running in relatively old shoes that I also used for aerobic activity like kickboxing and step workouts. I know, bad Suz!

So, today I went to a store that specializes in running and ended up with a fantastic new pair of shoes that I shall use only for running: Nike Women’s Air Max Moto + 6. They are so comfy and cushiony. I can’t wait to run with these tomorrow!

The best part of the experience was going into a store with a sales person that really knows what they’re doing! At running stores, the sales people will look at you old shoes (I wore mine in), have you walk, and ask you what your goals and training habits are. From there they will use their expertise to pick out a few pairs of shoes for you to try on. But it doesn’t end there!

They even encourage you go outside and run a little in them. Can’t do that at Finish Line! So, if you’re in the Greater Columbus area, I highly recommend FrontRunner for all your fitness needs! They’ve got a lot of other items besides shoes. I went there for my running shoes and racing spikes when I was in high school as well.

So, even though the price tag was steep, making sure to have the proper footwear for my training will make me feel better and avoid injury. It’s a worthwhile investment!

Now, I need to find a 5k to sign up for. In my searches so far, nothing has jumped out. Here’s to hoping some better events pop up in Central Ohio!
