Decked out in Under Armour

by - Thursday, January 22, 2009

I can't remember if I mentioned it before or not, but the BF got me some Under Armour for Christmas because he knows how much I love it. Unfortunately the jacket he got me was a little too snug to fit another layer underneath. When we went to exchange it, the store didn't have anymore in stock so the BF got his money back and promised me we'd go pick out something else.

That's what led to our fateful trip to the Under Armour outlet in Baltimore this past weekend. Poor BF didn't know what he was in for releasing me into a store full of Under Armour at prices that I could almost afford!

My eyes probably glazed over from looking at all the stuff and thinking about how much I "needed" to have. Seriously, I was like a kid in a candy store (minus the temper tantrum). About 20 minutes later, I had a huge stack of things to take into the fitting room, and this is when I noticed BF looking a little bored. "Antsy" is what he called it later.

So I tried to hurry along, settling finally on...

a pair of running shorts

a compression top (for $10!!!!) Mine is a dark red.

and a fleece to replace the Christmas gift that didn't fit. Mine is blue like the shirt in the pic. above.

I was in UA heaven! The only thing I can use in this weather is the fleece, but I'm super excited to rock the shorts and the top when it gets warmer.

Now I think the only running gear I own that isn't Under Armour are my shoes and my socks. UA is releasing their running shoes at the end of the month. I was reading all about them on their Web site and they have a stability pair. I'm really tempted to try them out, but I love my Mizunos and I'm not sure I want to shell out $120 for a pair of shoes just to try them out.

  3. Under Armour makes good stuff! It's just expensive!! I like all of your choices and I can't wait to try the shoes!

  4. Great deals! It's always sweet to update the running wardrobe.

  5. oh yea, i hear ya. we don't have a ua outlet here, but we have a couple of different nike outlets to choose from with all of the same stuff, plus tons of nike golf stuff.

    i have to show restraint lest the wife get too poor.

  6. Uh oh!! Don't let this become a habit HAHAHAA

  7. Under Armor is great! I would love to try their shoes as well...

  8. Hurray for outlet shopping! Your stuff is super cute!

    I was lucky enough to test drive a pair of UA running shoes (neutral) and they are the best pair of shoes I've ever had. (No, I do not work for UA!!) I was able to get three other pair at cost and they've totally revived my running. I would pay full price for them anyway.

    You can find discussion threads about them on Runner's World and other places. I guess the designer used to work for Fila.

  11. I could NEVER get BF to shop with me. Unless it's for fishing gear, which I would never shop for. He took me shopping for my bday one year and it lasted ONE stop at the make up counter. I've never seen him have so much anxiety. It was wierd.

  12. Oh soooo cool!!!!! I would be in serious trouble in there!

  13. i'm jealous that you have a ua outlet nearby! it would've been so hard for me to resist putting together a hefty credit card bill. now bf just needs to learn that a trip to the outlet is going to mean at least a few hours of browsing ;-)

  14. Ahhhhhhh...I need one of those stores here in Chicago, if I have not found one already.

  15. yay for shopping!!! i still dont have an UA clothes, i am a nike addict :)

    my friend works for underarmour and she got their running shoes to try out, and she absolutely loves them! she says they're really light and feel great to run in

  17. I love thinking and deciding about running clothes. It's such a tough job, but someone's gotta do it, and I'm happy to step up.

    I really like your shorts and tank top. I bought a running skirt recently and felt really nice during my run.

    Nothing like a nice new outfit to add that extra frisson to your run!
