Running Chicks Rule!

Finally I made the time to have my picture taken in my new favorite Running Chics bamboo shirt!
I wore it to the school meeting I was stressed about last week and feeling like I looked pretty helped and I stayed nice and cool in the warm cramped school room. I also wore it to my nuun interview and I got the job!

  The wonderful ladies over at Running Chics apparel have a sassy logo and they think that we should feel comfortable and look good at the same time. Works for me. The gals at Running Chics are avid runners and mothers too!
They let me choose a couple of shirts and you have already seen me wear my favorite running tank.

  They promptly sent those out to me along with a tote bag that also has  the running chics on it. I use it now to hold my running gear when I go to Grays Lake for my long runs.
The mesh tank was too big the first time around and I asked if I could send it back. They said "of course" and even sent me a postage paid envelope with my replacement shirt. How great of service is that!

  I like the fit and the neckline of the mesh back tank and the logo makes me smile and makes me want to "chick" some dudes at a race!
Here is what they say about the mesh tank.

Product Description

100% polyester Birdseye Jacquard Knit. Dry wicking and anti-microbial performance. Underarm gusset for comfort. Contrast sleeve facing and bartacking on key pocket. Droptail hem.
I also chose the bamboo short sleeves in currant. I love the color! It is incredibly soft and I love how it fits. It is also long enough! I hate when t-shirts are too short.  Here is what they say about the bamboo short sleeve.

Product Description

alo 57% bamboo lyocell/38% cotton/5% spandex ladies' jersey t-shirt. StretchFlex™ technology provides comfort and freedom of movement. Natural inherent properties wick moisture and are naturally anti-bacterial, hypoallergenic and breathable. Rolled neck band with raw edge. Contrast color stitching at bottom and sleeve hems.

I find the bamboo intriguing and think it will be a fantastic summer shirt.
