A New Passion Means New Fashion + Giveaway

Disclosure:  This product review was made possible by Gordmans.  I was provided a product sample for my review. All opinions are 100% mine.

Running has always been a huge passion of mine and the treadmill isn't my favorite place to run.  My "running rule" is if the weather is 40 degrees, lace up and head outside to get my run in.  Unfortunately we do not live in a state that is warm with sunshine in the winter - complete opposite actually.  But the a few weekends ago I decided to brave the weather and head to my favorite outdoor trail to get in a solid run.  It was amazing.  Life has been stressful lately and I have found a new passion for these outdoor runs, even in chilly temperatures.  The scenery and fresh air helped clear my mind and get me in a more positive mind frame for the upcoming week.  It is the best form of therapy for me....and it's free.  

A new passion means a new wardrobe, agree?  We met up with my sister and brother in law for dinner Saturday and there's a Gordmans within walking distance from the restaurant.  I lured Kurtis there by reminding him of all of the fun and cool home good items (at up to 60% off department store prices!) that Gordmans carries.  It would be a shopping trip for the both of us of course.   But I was on a hunt for outdoor gear, at least a great pair of long running pants.  I was excited to see the wide variety of athletic gear that Gordmans had to offer.  Plus there were tons of other exercise items like resistance bands, weights and trendy water bottles.  Did I mention the prices were quite fabulous too?  This deal bargaining mama was in heaven.

  I ended up snagging some trendy pants and a cute tank.  Okay I know the tank isn't cold weather approved but it was really cute.  The entire cost of the outfit was just under $25 too!  When I was checking out, the cashier told me that if I signed up for the Gordmans reward points I would earn points and get 20% off one item that day.  It made my purchase even sweeter.

I look forward to my weekend runs and refuse to let Winter ruin my mojo.  My new found love for these chilly runs has been a positive experience for my mental health.  Let's be honest, the fact that I have found some great workout fashion at affordable prices has made me even more excited to hit the trail next weekend!

What's your passion?  How do you keep your sanity during stressful moments?
