Meet Ellie and Races in March

by forloveofcarrots on March 5, 2013

Hope your day is off to a good start! I spent my time at the gym plugging away in the treadmill.

I originally thought I had one race for the month of March that race being the Sandy Hook 5K which is on the 23rd of this month. This race is sure to be an emotional one, it is very family oriented so it will be great to see all the kids that come out.

A few days ago I found a 1/4 marathon for the end of March in Hartford and sent it to my dad to see if he was interested. He was so we signed up! Thankfully I do most of my races with my dad because he reminded me that months ago we had signed up for the St. Patricks day 4 mile race that we usually do.

So it would appear I will be running in races the last 3 weekends in March. Which is just fine with me, I have been itching to run in a race especially now that the weather is more running appropriate.

I am most excited for the 1/4 marathon because I have never officially raced that length before. Most of my runs I take outside end up being around 6 miles so I have a feeling this race will be my new favorite.

Now on to Ellie. A few months ago you may remember I posted about PV. Body and the cute workout outfit they sent me. Well they have switched gears a bit and rather then sending out other companies workout clothes they decided to come up with their own line which is called Ellie.

I am going to be honest with you some people have had issues with pv.body/ellie when it came to shipping their outfit and receiving the wrong size or wrong item all together. I have had nothing but a good experience with them so I have nothing negative to say.

I absolutely love my new outfit!
I selected the Vixen top, which I love so much! It is so comfortable and the dri fit material is perfect for a sweaty spin class, running, stair mastering and even good for yoga!

For the bottoms I chose the little black Leggings! Which actually look gray to me but I really like them. They are extremely comfortable! My only issue is they are extremely long and I am a tall person and feel like they are made for giant. I am able to hike them up so you can’t tell.

All of the clothes stay true to size once washed.

Do you have any races coming up this month or in the next few months?

What do you think of the new Ellie line?

Where is your favorite place to get workout clothes?
I love Target, Old Navy, TJS and Marshalls, the cheaper the better

Disclaimer: I was not compensated for my review of Ellie, I did receive the clothes free of charge. All opinions posted are my own.

I love the back of the top! I’m a big fan of Old Navy workout clothes. They hold up pretty well for the price. Plus they have such cute colors that glow during spin!

I know there was a lot of confusion with the changes pv.body implemented, but it sounds like things are settling down, and if they are still providing quality product, I think it’s all good :)

I love that top, too! It looks like light-weight; would be super comfortable to work out in outside once it gets warmer.

I can’t wait to wear it in the summer, pretty sure I will wear it on every outdoor run!

I’m glad you had a good experience with Ellie. I stuck with them for a couple of months through the pv. body switch and while I like the clothing overall and it still feels like it’s good quality, I ultimately decided to cancel my membership because it’s too expensive for me to pay every month. I love that top though! It’s super cute and I wish I had gotten it in my latest package!

Yeah I agree, I don’t need new workout clothes every month! Even though I would like it :)
