I am currently on Orcas Island off the coast of Washington State in the San Juan Islands. It is incredibly beautiful with its lush green mountains, crystal clear lakes, Cascade Mountain views, and the Pacific Ocean. It is literally a summer dream, except for the fact that it is quite brisk and on the colder side. Going into the week I had no idea about the chilly temperatures, so when I got to Seattle with ONE sweatshirt, I ended up at the Nike Store (in Seattle) and bought a windbreaker. Yes, it was a spur of the moment purchase, but I am SO happy with it, I can’t seem to take it off (and not just because I need it). It is lightweight, retro stylish, cool, unique, and the perfect layer on piece. I plan to wear it on runs, casually, and basically, all day everyday!
Retro windbreaker — both the design, the look, and the color. But I love it!
Since I spend 40% of the time in workout gear (the other 40% is equally divided by Natori pajamas and day clothes i.e.jumpsuits and rompers), I was ecstatic to find a new silhouette of a sweatshirt — cropped and boxy. It is Nike and comes in multiple colors, and as soon as I saw it, I knew that I needed two immediately.
Cropped. Boxy. Petite. SWOOSH.
The Olympic Trials for Track and Field.
With school out for the summer, I am in Oregon for the next two months with my parents and the kids, and Ken is going to be back and forth from New York. New York has the Yankees, Mets, Knicks, Rangers, Islanders, Jets, and Giants. Eugene, Oregon has the Track and Field Olympic Trials! Eugene is actually known for its track (nickname: Tracktown, USA). It is the home of Prefontaine and is where Nike was born.
Even if you don’t love track (I do), watching Olympic Trials is pretty cool. Hundreds of athletes from around the U.S. come here after training for years. What transpires at Hayward Field determines if all of the blood, sweat, tears, and sacrifice are worth it. Lots of emotion, suspense, drama, and great track and field. Enjoy the pics!
Hayward Field. Big crowd. Despite the rain.
