New company, new products - Glyder review

Today's workout -
  - 3.5 mile run
  - 3 X 10 leg lifts
  - 3 X 10 arm curls
  - 4 X 1 min. planks

***I was not paid to write this post and all opinions stated are my own.

When I ran Ragnar in June, on my 3rd leg, I noticed a tank the girl next to me had on.  It was tighter on top but slightly flowy on the bottom.  It seemed like the kind of tank that would be right up my aisle.  Naturally, I asked her where she got it because I have no filter or something, and she told me through a company called Glyder.  The actual website is http://work-sweat-play.com.  After Ragnar, I went on the website and, because she had given me a promo code, I decided to try a couple other products that looked like something that would be comfortable.  I ended up going with the Grace tank top, which has ventilated mesh that keeps me incredibly cool and comfortable, the fusion tank – the girl at the race had this one so of course I had to have it too.  The back of it was caught my eye at the race - it's also a bit longer so when I wear the Core Shorts that I also bought, everything stays nice and covered :)


Wow.  If I could describe these in one word….just, wow.  The shorts do not ride up when I run, which I normally have a probably with in shorts and is the reason I stick mostly with running skirts in the summer.  The tanks are just fitted enough on top, and do not cling to my midsection.   The whole midsection is mesh as well, and I do not feel like I am getting overheated.  The backs of both tanks at the top are very open and really comfortable.  I am extremely happy with all of my purchases.  

I usually buy my running clothes from Brooks or Athleta, but Glyder apparel is amazing.  I will definitely be purchasing more.   I have yet to try Lululemon for anything other than their yoga pants and I’m not so sure I will now that I’ve tried Glyder – love at first run with these babies!  It is a little pricy but look for promo codes and honestly, this garb is worth every penny.  Can’t wait for my next half marathon on August 9th because I will be sporting full Glyder apparel!!!
