Get Moving with Active Clothing!

I had once believed that to be a runner you had to start with a perfect size 5 body and ripped muscles. Then, I met some of the amazing women of Zappos5Kers and began my own journey as a runner with their help and inspiration. 

Laura, Macy, Precious, Cody, Geenah: each one has been inspirational to me, proving that the biggest thing you need to be a runner is the desire to get off of the couch. They also gave me the foresight to recognize that my 14-minute mile was the same distance as someone else’s 5-minute mile.

Laura has gotten me through many races with encouragement and coaching, and her agreement that running oftentimes sucks, but nothing beats the feeling of crossing that finish line. 

Macy has shown me that determination, making a plan, and sticking to it pays off. She’s the “Beast Beginner” featured on our Zappos Running page, and she just ran yet another half marathon. 

Precious and Cody remind me of the reason I run, because they run for the same reason — to set a good example, and to make sure they’ll be around for their kids.  

Geenah has shown me to find joy in completion, rather than competing with anyone other than myself.

All of them are some of the most beautiful women you’ll ever meet. While I don’t think any of them are a size 2, they have all shown me that you can choose a goal and meet it, whether it is to finish, to be healthier or to be stronger, no matter what your numerical relationship with gravity or the number on your clothing tag. 

Running as a curvy girl has one challenge beyond getting up and taking that first step out the door: finding the right gear. I hope that someday companies will realize that those of us with the greatest need for technical workout gear are not a size XS. Until that time, I have some suggestions for gear that will go the distance with you as you get up, get out and chase that goal.

Cool weather is great for running — you don’t quite so much feel like melting. However, you’ll want some great pieces that wick away sweat to keep you warm and dry.

Even when its cold, I’ve always preferred a crop to longer running pants, simply because they always seem like they ride up less and cause the dreaded chafe. And a fun pattern makes it easier to be seen if you’re running in those dusk or early morning hours before or after work.

Do not run without a great bra — you’ll save yourself pain and breast damage. I also highly recommend a good compression sock when you’re just starting; it makes recovery a lot faster, and reduces pain.

Momma always said, “Safety first!” This time of year, when the sun goes down early and comes up later, make sure you’re being seen with reflection gear. Oh, and just because it’s cooler out doesn’t negate you staying hydrated. 


If you’re hitting the road in any of the gear you’ve seen here, tag us in your selfies or pics with #zapposWRW — we’d love to see your style!

Inspired By: Tee Time

If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then street style replication is fashion flattery at its finest.

Today’s street style inspiration is centered on one of the most effortlessly cool wardrobe staples around: the graphic tee. Even on our laziest days, the ubiquitous graphic-print tee instantly offers style redemption with its cool, laidback vibe!

We translated this comfy look with a gritty burnout tee underneath a military-inspired twill jacket. The pop of bold color in the beanie just gives that extra oomph on those days when you just want to roll out of bed and go!
