Girly Things Giveaway

Without getting into too much detail (remember my Dad, FIL, brothers and some co-workers read my blog) let's just say that the RIGHT SPORTS BRA IS NECESSARY for a happy and enjoyable workout.
IMG 6277


Moving Comfort gave me the opportunity to choose a sports bra from their AMAZING sports bra fitting room.  This fitting room allowed me to choose the best fit/style/color for ME.  I like that.


So, now that I am eating like I am still run 70 miles per week and taking estrogen.....lets just say the girls have grown a little.  I have been in need of a better sports bra's than my $3.99 clearance ones from a few years ago.  This new one is so comfortable and does the job well.

I am O.B.S.E.S.S.E.D.


I don't know how I ran or worked out before this baby.
IMG 6278


No making fun of me for my moles, embarrassment of taking my whole shirt off or my sweaty blotchy skin.  It happens to everyone, just a little more often for some people.


To Enter:


1.  Leave a comment in the Hungry Runner Girl discussion on their Facebook wall by clicking HERE!!!!!  In your comment just tell them which sports bra you would like using their new interactive Sports Bra Fitting Room (click HERE to access fitting room)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------


The giveaway will last for one week and the winner will be able to select a Moving Comfort sports bra of their choice.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Even though you are leaving comments for the giveaway on their facebook page......I am still going to ask you questions for fun.


Favorite color of sports bra?


Do you experience chafing form your sports bras when you do a long run?
-My old ones yes (even though I used half the tube of glide each time).   I can't wait to try this new one out!!


Do you have moles or freckles?
-Both for this chicka, during the summer they really come out to show their face.


What was the best part of your THURSDAY!!!
On my way to a faculty party at a park wahoo!!!!

Covered in freckles!! :-) my favorite sports bra color is definitely neon orange, gotta make sure those drivers can see me from 80 miles away!
I am so excited for this giveaway, I could definitely use a new bra, no lies

My favorite sports bra is the FROG BRA from title nine (which they don't make any more as of a couple years ago). It's perfect for the bigger chested girls like myself.

When do you get to run again? I'm out with an achilles injury...just over 2 weeks away from my marathon. We'll see if it happens

I love good sports bras. Nike is the best so far....gonna enter this giveaway though!

Awesome giveaway - a good bra is definitely essential to a good work out! :)

 
At May 26, 2011 at 3:46 PM , Blogger theAlmostRunner said...

Oh I for sure have freckles and a few moles... soooo attractive. : )

 
At May 26, 2011 at 3:46 PM , Blogger Lindsey@arunningtale said...

All my sports bras are grey, so I guess thats my favorite color! I have never had chafing from a sports bra, but do use a chafing stick for runs over 28km or so.
Today is my Friday, thats the best part - oh and I have less than an hour to go before I head to a 2 hour spa appt! Post marathon treat to my feet :)

 
At May 26, 2011 at 3:48 PM , Blogger Tor said...

I definitely love working out in neon sports bras... neon orange, yellow, pink, blue... it just makes me feel a little bit perkier in my step as I feel it reflects my personality.

 
At May 26, 2011 at 3:49 PM , Blogger Geneviève said...

Hello muscles!! Check out your biceps and triceps in that first picture! :D You go girl!!

 
At May 26, 2011 at 3:53 PM , Blogger MelPeabody @ Green Mountain Runner said...

awesome give away! Fave sorts bra color would have to be something fun, although currently all of mine are the basic grey, black or white. They are the ones that are at TJ maxx...yes, I need a real good sports bra clearly!

 
At May 26, 2011 at 3:53 PM , Blogger Amanda@runninghood said...

Totally have moles and freckles! Tons of them! :) Um, do they make a bra for the tiny titty women out there?! Gosh, before kids I needed a sports bra for support of my perfect full B cups! Ha! Now, I need a sports bra so that I resemble a woman! ;) So, I'm off to see if they have a PADDED sports bra like the Handful bra I love so much! :)

 
At May 26, 2011 at 3:58 PM , Blogger Jerilee E. said...

Love my Moving Comfort Alexis bra! I'm a black sports bra sort of girl- and covered with moles and back freckles :). I get chafing under my sports bra if I don't take it off immediately after a long run.
Best part of my Thursday was my daughter's preschool graduation! So silly and cute all at the same time.

 
At May 26, 2011 at 4:07 PM , Blogger Jess @ Blonde Ponytail said...

I posted a comment with my preference--have heard such great things about these bras!

 
At May 26, 2011 at 4:14 PM , Blogger Caitlin said...

chafing is the WORST! it's weird how i usually get it worst the first few runs i go in a tank top or when it gets really hot. but i'll have to check this ones out. they've won your stamp of approval after all. :) i usually rock the new nike ones, i'm loving the new fabric, but i'm always up to try new stuff..especially if it could possibly be free! hehe :)

i have a little mole right under my right eye. i used to be sooooo embarrassed about it when i was in grade school because i'd get teased, but now i usually forget it's there.

 
At May 26, 2011 at 4:17 PM , Blogger ihatepickleslikewoah said...

I love wearing bright colored sports bras. Like a fun little secret ;)

BEST part of my day was my little baby laughing hard in the bathtub :) :)

 
At May 26, 2011 at 4:18 PM , Anonymous Pam said...

Girl, your arms look great!! All of the body pump classes are paying off!! :)

Yes, I've experienced chaffing from sports bras!! Worst part about long-distance running for sure!! Fav. color - black!!

Best part of my Thursday...ummm...I have a hair appt. tonite! Oh, and I'm going to treat myself to Wendy's new summer salad!! I LOVE IT!! YAY!! :)

 
At May 26, 2011 at 4:19 PM , OpenID fitchocoholic said...

I posted a comment on FB! I totally know how a good bra makes a workout better! :D

 
At May 26, 2011 at 4:19 PM , Blogger ihatepickleslikewoah said...

O and i have little freckles all over my necl. I NEVER thought anything of them until i got a pic drawn (like at an amusement park or something) and the guy put a billion dark freckles allll over it!!??

 
At May 26, 2011 at 4:26 PM , Blogger Christina @ The Athletarian said...

I love anything colourful! Putting on fun coloured sports bras gets me even more excited to work out!

I have actually never experienced any chafing! I guess I am lucky :)

I get freckles on my face in the summer too! I don't have a lot of beauty marks though...

PS can I please have your arms and back? Thanks.

 
At May 26, 2011 at 4:26 PM , Blogger Mary Nevin said...

Best part of my Thursday is this giveaway. I'm unable to run without a military level of support and moving comfort is the only bra I wear. I've never gone back. The Juno is my absolute favorite!

Have fun at the faculty party!! :)

 
At May 26, 2011 at 4:38 PM , Blogger Connie said...

I LOVE purple and try to buy all of my sports bras in that colour! Even though I'm small up top I always feel like sports bras are pinching me under the arms and that's where I get chafing too :(

 
At May 26, 2011 at 4:39 PM , Blogger Allyssa said...

I love colored sports bras! White is always an essential though :)

I never get chafing from my bras. I wear the cami style from Target and they never irritate.

I also have moles and freckles. Living in Florida they are visible pretty much all year.

The best part of my thursday was relaxing at the beach all afternoon! I was off work today and my kids went somewhere with their grandparents.

 
At May 26, 2011 at 5:12 PM , Blogger Stacie said...

I liked the Charity, Phoebe, & Vixen bras. Loved the green on the Charity.

Black seems to be my sports bra color of choice. I'd love to add some color.

I've only had chafing issues a couple times. Once during the Portland Marathon when it rained the entire time. Wet running gear isn't your friend.

Favorite thing about today ~ I had a great workout.

I have lots of moles and freckles. When the sun come out, it can get ridiculous :)

 
At May 26, 2011 at 5:17 PM , Blogger Vanessa @ Gourmet Runner said...

Lots of moles and freckles for me! My grandma told me those were the marks left from where angels kissed me before delivering me to my parents. Awesome. I still go with that story!

PINK sports bra all the way!
:)

 
At May 26, 2011 at 5:19 PM , Anonymous Cortney @ Nerd on the Run said...

I like white sports bras. I am fairly busty and did a post on my blog about some bra options for bigger chested ladies. I wear an Enell sportsbra. If they are good enough for the BL contestants to use, they are good enough for me!
I'd love to win this new bra... I'm open to having options. :)
Favorite thing about today - I had a coffee date...with a boy! haha. It's the little things!
I have moles and freckles. My face is currently a smattering of freckles. I'm hoping one day that I will turn into a giant freckle and then maybe I'll look tan!

 
At May 26, 2011 at 5:33 PM , OpenID hauterunningmama said...

Favorite color of sports bra? PINK!

Do you experience chafing form your sports bras when you do a long run? No! I have the C9 ones from Target and they work just fine. Maybe thats what happens when you are completely flat, lol!


Do you have moles or freckles? Too many, although my grandpa used to tell me they were angel kisses. Thats how I knew I had guardian angels!


What was the best part of your THURSDAY!!!

Picking up my kids from preschool! They get so excited to see me :)

 
At May 26, 2011 at 5:53 PM , Blogger Holli Marie said...

I like anything colorful and fun. I am hooked on NikePro bras right now, but I may have to give some of these Moving Comforts a tri! Some of my older sportsbras chafe so I have to be careful about what I wear on a long run! The sun brings out some darling lil freckles of course, but I love the sun and summer and everything that does with it. Best part of Thursday was...My long run! Wicked hot out in DC, may have to start running in the AM and swimming in the PM. Can we do an Ironman together?!?

 
At May 26, 2011 at 6:00 PM , Blogger Julia said...

I have LIME green sports bra and highlighter yella, they are my favs.

I have never experienced chaffing, and I also use the c9s from Target.

Do you have moles or freckles?

I am COVERED in freckles. They are everywhere, even on my toes.

 
At May 26, 2011 at 6:09 PM , Blogger B said...

It's shocking what a good sports bra can do, and I haven't even had a really good one. I switched to Champion bras (17 dollars at Target) and it made a huge difference. Those suckers feel amazing and have fun colors :)

In other bra news, if you're ever feeling small in that area--go to Victoria's Secret for a measurement. It's crazy (and a bit funny) when they tell you what size bra you are in theirs

 
At May 26, 2011 at 6:35 PM , Blogger Running Ricig said...

Awesome giveaway! I actually stopped wearing sports bras because of chafing, instead I wear the Champion baby-doll running tops with built in sports bras and they are AMAZING!

Best part of my Thursday was starting the second season of Glee! How sad am I?

 
At May 26, 2011 at 6:37 PM , Anonymous Rachel @ The Perseverance Diaries said...

I always, always wear a black sportsbra! It's just my color :)

I do chafe and I also have moles on my back, talk about uncomfortable, yuck.

My favorite part about this Thursday is the new recipe I made! Coconut crusted tofu with kiwi salsa, nice and summery :)

 
At May 26, 2011 at 7:29 PM , Blogger Samantha said...

During my marathon I got some bad chafing at mile 23. Thank goodness they had vaseline on the course.

I def have moles...one smack dab on my face. Like to refer to that as a beauty mark though lol

My fav part about this Thursday is new Brooks Adrenaline shoes!! :)

 
At May 26, 2011 at 7:55 PM , Blogger BigHappyFamily said...

I am feeling too lazy to go get a tape measure and do the virtual fitting room thing.

I like to have a white, and an opaque bra on hand.

Favorite part of Thursday? That tomorrow is Friday! Kickin' off the weekend early!

 
At May 26, 2011 at 7:56 PM , OpenID fitfeastingfriends said...

I have two sports bras and super bright colors-hot yellow and hot orange-and they are my favoriteeeee!! I was actually thinking I need some new sports bras because I've been getting definite chafe! It looks like a got a boob job because of two healing scars from the chaffing! -TMI- sorry! =)

make sure you get those mole checked out. i just found out my mole was skin cancer. No joke

My favorite color sports bra is nude because you can wear it with any tank and it doesn't show up in race pictures if it hangs out. I agree i use a half a stick of glide every time i race because of chaffing.

thursday was a good day for me. close to the weekend.

BTW you are so freaking cute and funny. I always follow but forget to comment when I read and catch up with my coffee daily

I have to have a little, ahem, not padding....but...inserts so myheadlightsaren't showing! That being said. Old Navy has some good ones. I have yet to see about the chafing.

 
At May 26, 2011 at 8:07 PM , Blogger Melissa said...

I have all sorts of different colors of sports bras. I like the really bright ones they sell at Target. :)
I haven't had chaffing issues but I haven't run more than 11 miles at once. Crossing fingers.
My favorite part of today was my cooking class. :)

 
At May 26, 2011 at 8:16 PM , Blogger my little celebration said...

I like black sports bras best because they look cute under colorful tanks :D.

And no need to be embarrassed of your bra photos, friend. You have a perfectly beautiful back in my humble opinion!

 
At May 26, 2011 at 8:20 PM , OpenID indecisiveathlete said...

I always wear Nike ones love love love. My fav color right now is an obnoxiously bright orange one :)

I have moles and freckles. I love them.

 
At May 26, 2011 at 8:25 PM , Anonymous Jayme @ Runner-n-Spice said...

I kind of like when my bras are different colours than the tops im wearing!!

I have freckles. My mom used to tell me that they meant that I was being kissed by the sun... :)

Ahhh....I'm running a half marathon on Sunday!!

lululemon makes great sports bras! Before wearing them, I'd always double up on my Target bras, but they do the trick. I love them!

best part of thursday: baking away in the kitchen!!!

 
At May 26, 2011 at 8:51 PM , Blogger Lulu and Ruby said...

Love this giveaway - I haven't had too bad chaffing from my bras so I can't complain. My fav is the Lululemon TaTa tamer in purple! I do have moles - everywhere but no freckles... My favourite part of this Thursday is fresh baked cookies cuz it's cold and rainy!

 
At May 26, 2011 at 8:51 PM , OpenID roadworthrunning said...

that's an awesome giveaway! I just checked out their website and want everything!

 
At May 26, 2011 at 8:54 PM , Blogger Running for the Kitchen said...

Favorite color sports bra: grey

I chafe at the bottom of my bra right on my chest between my ladies

Best part of Thursday: Cooking with my sister and playing with my nephew. That's kind of two, but it was all at the same time, so it counts.


And I really want that sports bra. Looks awesome!

 
At May 26, 2011 at 8:59 PM , Blogger Melissa said...

I've actually never had problems with sports bra chafing and I use the cheapie brightly colored ones from Target! And it looks like a lot of other runners do too!!

I have a bunch of moles, and it kinda freaks me out. Esp. the ones on my back bc then I can't see if they're changing shape/size/color or any of that scary stuff, ah!

 
At May 26, 2011 at 9:01 PM , Anonymous Kim said...

My favorite color sports bra?
that I own? My hot pink compression sports bra from TARGET he he :)

No chafing cuz I don't think I've been on a run long enough yet :)

I have freckles on my nose & little moles (I prefer BEAUTY marks) all over my bod!

BEST part of my Thurs - HUBBY ARRIVED HOME FROM THIRTEEN DAYS IN ISRAEL!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 
At May 26, 2011 at 9:07 PM , Anonymous Sarah Elizabeth said...

I got horrible chafing after an 8 mile run with an old (and probably also cheap, but it's so old I can't remember) sports bra. Let me just say that I never want to experience that again. Who knew a good sports bra could be so important? =)

 
At May 26, 2011 at 9:40 PM , Anonymous Holly @ pink runner said...

Love PINK sports bras :) I have Target ones that are more comfortable than my more expensive Nike ones. I hate chafing!! Best part about my Thursday was my sushi dinner!!!

 
At May 26, 2011 at 9:54 PM , Blogger Natalie Cates said...

I love my neon pink sports bra and my white one! The white one fits the best and I always feel more tan in white! :)

I don't really experience chafing, but I will let you know as I am starting half marathon training soon.

Best thing today for this girl - NEW CAR!!! I went car shopping (just looking), and ended up trading in my car for way more than I expected and got a new (to me) Nissan Murano. I.AM.PUMPED. :)

 
At May 27, 2011 at 12:54 AM , Blogger Flor said...

Great give away!!! I've chosen JUNO.

 
At May 27, 2011 at 5:04 AM , Blogger Nik said...

I like the charity bra. I'm fairly boring and like black.

I am head-to-toe moles and freckles but I've learned to love them. Except the handful of scary ones I've had removed.

Best part of my Thursday was the pepperoni pizza bagel I had for lunch at Einstein Bros.!

 
At May 27, 2011 at 5:15 AM , Blogger Lindsey said...

I'd choose the alexis print or the charity. I need another one badly, too! Haha. This is an AWESOME giveaway!!

I have some moles (people who say they don't are lying!!! :) ), and my nose is getting freckled, hmm.

 
At May 27, 2011 at 6:09 AM , Anonymous mel said...

My sports bras are all target or forever 21 so I def need a good one!! I love the plain black/blue/ or gray ones b/c they go with everything!

 
At May 27, 2011 at 6:18 AM , Anonymous Alyssa @ Life of bLyss said...

THIS IS SO COOL. I can't wait to go try this out! I love sports bras in bright colors... especially since it was mandatory all through my field hockey career to wear navy blue. I've still got about 7 navy blue sports bras.

 
At May 27, 2011 at 8:08 AM , Blogger Erin @ UntilYouTri said...

OH MY GOSH I AM SO EXCITED!!! I am seriously OBSESSED with moving comfort sports bras!! I seriously cannot go back to anything else after trying theirs. I only have two, though, so they get quite the rotation:). I would love to add another to the collection. You better believe I went straight over to FB adn commented on their wall. I love bright colors...blue, pink, orange, etc!

I have tons of moles! Bleh!

 
At May 27, 2011 at 8:48 AM , Blogger lolamako said...

Phoebe all the way!! And the brightest color they have!! Target has some really really pretty sports bras but I'm to cheap pay $17, I just go to Ross or Marshalls and look for good ones.
I have tons of freckles, I love them though :) A few moles that scare me back from my tanning bed days :( I removed a scary one with Cansema/Black Salve recently, hurt like a mofo, but I'm glad it's gone.

 
At May 27, 2011 at 10:40 AM , Blogger wendiw80 said...

I can only wear yoga bras when I run long distance because i get chaffing EVERY SINGLE TIME!! Bleh!! But my boobs need a little more support, i just don't have any other options :(

I do have moles and in fact, I need to get a couple checked out because they're weird.

best part of thursday: let's see: watching the Miami Heat win!!

 
At May 27, 2011 at 12:00 PM , Blogger Laura said...

Fun post!
I am smaller-chested (B cup) but sometimes have to wear two sports bras, depending on the activity. If I'm running or walking, one seems to be fine... if I'm horseback riding, aka being shaken around for two hours by a horse with a choppy trot, then I've got to double it up.
Target has some sports bras on sale this week that I really want... they are tie-dyed!
I have freckles AND moles. And I'm normally super pale. Jealous?

 
At May 27, 2011 at 8:40 PM , Blogger [Red Sox] Wife said...

I have freckles and moles... i' mlike a connect the dots waiting to happen.

um I havent bought a sports bra since I had a baby and my boobs shrunk from a DD to a very small B!! (TMI???) I would LOVE to win a bra... probably Charity or Vixen would be awesome... and if I dont win them I think I will get them anyways! :)

Okay I am way behind the times on this blog, but I used to get THE WORST friction burns on my collar bones from sports bras until I found Moving Comfort's Fiona bra. CHANGED MY LIFE! I never noticed how much the ladies were bouncing around... until they weren't and no more burnage.
