My workouts are vital to my sanity. Here's the problem: I have a time crunch when trying to fit in a run. Top priority is family time, then the business. Finding time for my health is next. Often I don't have time to change after a workout or before running errands. I need workout gear that looks great and also looks fashionable.
I have to get creative with my time. Ideally, I'll take my daughters to school and then head right out for a run along the Brooklyn waterfront. Thanks to Mayor Bloomberg and concerned citizens Brooklyn now has an expansive running area along the East River. After the mile walk to school (a great warmup) I tighten my laces and then head off on my 4 mile waterfront run that loops me back to my apartment. It's a fabulous way to start the day.
I run from school along the water and then back home--who needs a gym! Last week on my run, I tested out the hot new workout gear from Heidi Klum--the collection is a high performance/high style collaboration with New Balance. Heidi knows a thing or two about being a hot mom and managing a busy schedule. New Balance knows about performance fabrics. A perfect partnership. I love all the little details she put in these designs integrating tons of pockets into the looks. These sleek little HKNB Tech Capris are perfect for spring running and the HKNB Tunic was a fun splash of color to wake me up in the morning.
While I might not look like Heidi Klum when I wear her new workout line, I sure feel great.
