A few weeks ago I was scrolling through my Twitter feed and saw another blogger’s review (I’m so sorry I can’t remember who it was) of some running shorts, so being a workout clothes fiend of course I clicked the link to read.
That blog post is where I was introduced to GRACEDBYGRIT, a new women’s activewear company.
I browsed the site and looked at all they had to offer, and immediately noticed all of the bright colored tanks, tops and knickers. What I found particularly interesting is some of the activewear can be worn both on land and in the water–which is appealing to me as a triathlete (swim-run bricks anyone?)
A little about the company: it was founded by two women named Kimberly and Kate while they were on a run realizing women’s workout clothing needs to be functional and fashionable. They also incorporate safety into their gear, having pockets int heir pants that accommodate a smart phone and most of the products come with a safety whistle. Read more here.
The more I read about the company the more I wanted to become involved. I applied to be an Influenster the same day I found out about GRACEDBYGRIT, and after an interview and a small waiting period, I found out last week I was a GRACEDBYGRIT Hey Girl Influenster!
As an influenster, I was provided with a tank top, a pair of knickers and some headwear to review and #sweatmystory, and I chose the Delicious Tank, the Land and Sea Logo Knicker, and the visor.
The Delicious Tank is a silky smooth, stretchy basic racerback tank top you can wear for running, yoga, well…just about anything. It’s just that versatile. I wore it for my plyo test and walked in it and it doesn’t ride up. I chose a simple navy blue, but there are a ton of bright colors available.
The Land and Sea Logo Knickers are a dream come true. I love the wide yoga waistband, their super light weight, and I personally love the length. Again, I wore these during my plyo test and walked in them and had no problem at all. I can’t wait to run in them!
There are 2 things I love about these knickers:
1. The wide waistband–it doesn’t cut in to my stomach like a thinner waistband would and it stays in place
2. There are TWO pockets in the waistband, one in the front and one in the back so there is plenty of room for a phone and keys.
Both pieces have reflective logos.
I haven’t really tested the visor because I haven’t been running, but it certainly is comfortable and I love the color! I see many runs in the future with this visor!
