#getraceready with Get The Label

Thursday, May 11, 2017

Spring is here and it is time to #getraceready.  Get The Label is an online boutique that offers a variety of clothes for men, women, and children.  They also have a strong fitness collection that includes tops, bottoms, trainers, and sports bras.  All the top brands are there too- Adidas, Nike, Under Amour, Reebok, Asics and more, but at a fraction of the price.  Seriously- a lot of the fitness stuff is about 40% off RRP (inlcuding trainers!).  Get The Label generously let me pick out a few pieces which I thought would be great in this transitional spring weather (chilly mornings and cool evenings) as training season ramps up again for summer races.

My new outfit

Cold Gear leggings
After my spill. So sad.

The bottoms are Under Armour Cold Gear leggings which are lined with a warm material but also wicks away moisture.  The leg panels are water repellent, which is helpful in misty weather.  The waistband is high and elastic, which makes it very flattering on my body (and stays in place when I run).

These became an instant favorite during the last weeks of my marathon training. I tend to have trouble managing my body temperature during workouts but these always kept it just right.  Can you believe I tripped and fell during an Adidas Runners morning session and ripped them?  Absolutely gutted and I am going to try to mend them.  If I can't, I will be ordering a new pair soon.

As I mentioned before, I am trying to replace my old sports bras that are sad and ragged.  The description of the Reebok WorkOut Ready bra sold me- ultimate support and moisture wicking (are you seeing a theme here?).  I have worn it for both spin classes and run sessions and been happy with the suport it gives my chest.

Finally, the Nike Air Drape Hoody looked so bright and cosy, I had to have it.  I love wearing something around my neck to keep warm when there is a breeze, and the cowl neck hoody allows me to bundle up or cool off a bit.  There are a few design details, such as the pointed cuff, printed hood and zippered pockets, that add to the unique design. The material is 96% cotton and soft.  I wear this top on the way to morning sessions but also when I am home on the couch at the weekends.

I am really happy with the quality of items I was sent from Get The Label.  As I mentioned, I will be reordering the Under Amour leggings (only £29.99) if I can't find a way to patch the stretchy fabric.  I will be checking back every month to see what new products they have added to their shop.

Get The Label generously sent me these items to review.  As always, all opinions are honest and my own.
