A Great (and Inexpensive!) Sports Bra for Running

I've been consistently working out since the first of the year, and the last time I could confidently say that was probably on January 4, 2002. See, I decided at the end of last year that 2010 was going to be my year, the year to do all those things I've been putting off doing for one silly reason or another.

I even made a list, and regularly update it in the sidebar of my personal blog, She Likes Purple. You'll find a lot of my goals for the year revolve around getting and staying healthy, making nutrition a priority and finding new ways to enjoy fitness.

So, I've been running and working out and slowly morphing into someone that is, well, pretty badass, I don't mind saying.


Getting healthy and fit is a long process, and it's one I'm thrilled to chronicle here in The Stir. I love sharing tips, tricks and lots and lots of products that can make losing weight a little easier and more enjoyable.

One of the most important things to keep in your weight-loss arsenal, especially if you're doing any activity more intense than checking the mail: a sports bra.

I recently bought a filler sports bra, one to get me through my work-outs until I could find a better, more expensive one to invest in. I picked up this inexpensive sports bra at my local Old Navy when I was buying my son some spring clothes. And, no one was more pleasantly surprised than me when it turned out to be just perfect for my needs.

I have a smaller chest but am not nearly as svelte as I'd like, so finding a sports bra to fit me well has been tough. This one fits like an extra layer of skin, I kid you not. And it's a mere $15.

If you're in the market for an inexpensive sports bra to chase after your 2010 goals, I recommend this one.

I'll be back later this week to talk a little more about my weight-loss post baby. The baby who, uh, turned one last month.
