Mountain Play

Thursday, April 30, 2015

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of The North Face for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.
When Chris and I get tired of the city, I think we'll move to Colorado.
I love it here. I love the weather, the people, the wide open spaces, and the chance to hike up a mountain whenever you feel like it.
After a day full of checking out wedding venues (more to come on that later) I was more than anxious to slip into some workout gear and on hop on the mountain.

It felt so good! I know everyone probably says it, but if I lived within close driving distance to a mountain, I would hike every day.

It was fitting because I just got my new sweatshirt and crop leggings from Mountain Athletics from The North Face. And as you can tell, I'm very excited about it. I haven't taken off the hoodie since I got it. These are my new favorite athletic clothes.

The leggings have that active stretch fabric that I love when it comes to workout gear. They don't fit uncomfortably tight and they're also not baggy in places they shouldn't be like some yoga pants I've worn. Mountain Athletics from The North Face uses FlashDryXD, so they don't snag, pill, pull, or best of all, attract a lot of dog hair!

I have a North Face fleece I wear all of the time, but this is the first workout apparel I've worn from their line and I'm super impressed. Besides hiking in the mountains which I obviously can't do all of the time, it's also cute and convenient for walking Harlow in Chicago.

The best part is North Face is hosting a giveaway so you have a chance to win your own cool workout gear. The North Face Mountain Athletics Collection Give-Away!

  2. Alright I don't understand why my regular, real-life google account isnt signing out of this damn internet soooo oh well. Here's my comment again, and we're buds so I'm not worried. This isnt even my last name anymore anyway.

    Your hair looks absolutely fab. And so does Colorado. We've been meaning to visit there one of these months. Looking fwd to reading about why you chose that state as your wedding location!

  12. Colorado was our dream state so we picked up our four young kids and just went for it. It's awesome here. Now I'm waiting for the wedding venue update. In CO? Really?

  15. I've never been to CO, but it's on my list! My rule for buying workout pants/leggings is that they can't lose their opacity when bending over. No one wants to see anyone's ass!

  16. I have a few outerwear items by North Face, but I wasn't really aware they made actual workout clothes. The leggings look adorable, and if they're anything like the quality of the NF stuff I already have, I'm sure they don't disappoint performance-wise either. Thanks for sharing!

  18. I took a geography class in college and every year my professor took a poll on peoples' favorite states. It was always a mix of like and dislikes for every state except Colorado. In the years he taught Colorado never got a negative vote, every other state got negative and positive votes. But good ol' Colorado was always positive.

  20. For the longest time I resisted buying a North Face jacket and when I finally succumbed to buying one I now practically live in it during winter, my nice pea coats be damned. Why did I go so long without their gear?
