lululemon Fast & Free. Run Tested. HIIT Approved. When lululemon asked us to Product Test their new crop- we said absolutely! Little did I know I would fall in love. When I put them on I loved the higher waist band that held me in but the light feeling thru the legs – it was if I was naked. Now came the test. The first run I did in them was a cold and windy 9 miler in Long Beach. I loved the way I felt secure during the run but I had one complaint – my Spi Belt slipped all over the place. Little did I realize lulu had built a pant that I would no longer need a belt!
I have tried wearing crops with pockets for my phone before but I always found them distracting. The next run I went on I decided to test the pocket. It was amazing! I didn’t even realize my phone was there – it was easily accessible for a beautiful boardwalk pic and I didn’t need a belt. There are also built in pockets along the waistband for gel packs/keys/chapstick.
The true test was the Shape Half Marathoh which was the first race. (Louise actually broke the “nothing new on race day” rule and wore her pair for the first time!). I carried my phone in the leg pocket, 2 gel packs in the outside waistband pocket, and my chapstick in the center back pocket. The gels were easily accessible yet secure and my crops didn’t budge! The ones sold out quick so I constantly checked my local lulu until they got in a second pair that I immediately purchased.
These pants come in a crop and full length style and are a MUST HAVE for your running collection. I have ran miles and miles in training runs, 2 half marathons, and a 10 miler in them over the past couple months! RUN over to your local lululemon and try them on for yourself – I guarantee you’ll fall in love.
Also a special thank you to lululemon RF for gifting 7 lucky ladies a pair at our anniversary party – we love seeing you guys sweating it out in them.
