Triumph or Tacky?

23 Jun

For the Weeks 15 and 16 challenge (if you recall this one stretched over two weeks since I was unsuccessful on my first attempt) I tried to find an athletic tank top with a built-in bra. Although I originally couldn’t find anything under $20, I ended up lucking out with one that I found at Foot Locker for $19.99!

 

 I think that the purchase of this garment (along with the awesome running skirt that I bought for the Week 13 challenge) is very timely since I finally bit the bullet and registered for my first half-marathon! Eek! It’s in September and I need all of the help I can get with training,  that includes having cute running outfits for motivation! On top of that I’m doing a crazy Spartan Race in a week and a half so it looks like I will be living in workout wear outside of working hours for the next umm, 3 months or so…

 

So back to the tank top! According to all of the online votes everyone thought that I did great! It really is a  cute tank and I do love the fact that it’s a nice blue colour as opposed to my mostly pink workout wear. So far I have worn it twice, once to Dragon boat practice and once tonight for a run. I was going to wear it to the gym earlier this week but my gym has that silly rule that you can’t wear tank tops in co-ed workout areas. Again, apparently shoulders are just far too titillating for the boys around here!

Ignore the wet spot from Dragon boat practice, lol!

 

I do find that the tank is very comfortable however, my only complaint is that the bra part of it seems to stretch once it’s been worn for a little while. By the end of my run it felt much looser so I’m not quite sure how long I will be able to wear it if I drop some weight during training (which I inevitably tend to do).

So for now I’ll leave this Triumph or Tacky post open. At the moment the tank top is a Triumph but I’ll let you know if it moves into the Tacky realm (running with no support up top would definitely qualify as tacky!).

Well, that’s it from me for now! Results post coming up Saturday 😮
