Running Chics

Hello Happy Runner Folks!

I am absolutely honored to be bringing you this review/giveaway today. Thrilled. Over the moon, even. Running Chics is a company I've been stalking for well over 6 months now and the fact that they were generous enough to offer us this chance to test their gear, well it just proves that I have good taste when it comes to my stalking.

Running Chics is a company founded by Andrea Reynolds and Kristen Moreland. Two very busy mothers with a passion for running and the idea of a little running chick. Their design graces all their clothes which happen to be of absolute top quality. I was lucky enough to test out their alo Hoodie. A performance piece that delivers.


My package arrived with a cute tote (which I have already used a dozen times), my review piece, and a sticker.

I had to wait about a week to test out my hoodie. The temps that morning were around 40 degrees so I wore it single, no layering. I didn't overheat and the fabric was super comfortable. The hood didn't pull on me and everything stayed put nicely. No chafing or bunching. I love the color and the design on the back.

I was just really cold in this last picture, I swear I wasn't dancing!

This piece got another test when I wore it with some capris to coach my son's soccer game and run errands. I got a few compliments on it and I was happy to share the source with a couple of fellow moms and athletic types. I've washed it three times now and it doesn't show any wear.

My hoodie is a medium. I think I could wear a small but was ordering big to be on the safe side. I have a pretty big bust, and the fabric is sort of stretchy so it all worked out. This way I will be able to layer when the temps really drop.

The fact that Running Chics is out of Missouri makes them even nearer and dearer to my heart. That is my home state. Lots of good things to come out of Missouri!

Want to win your very own hoodie?
