What’s Beautiful

Under Armour: What’s Beautiful . . . You!

When you decide on a goal for yourself, do you follow through with it? What makes it worth attaining, and what helps you along the way? What if I told you that you could have support, accountability, and possibly win really cool prizes, like being one of the faces of Under Armour? Motivation enough for me!

Under Armour has just launched their What’s Beautiful campaign. This thing is big. REALLY big. It’s pretty awesome too. All you have to do is sign up online (free!) and announce a goal. It can be any goal from running your first mile to completing an Ironman or losing five pounds.

This will last for nine weeks, and at the end of it, Under Armour is choosing a handful of women to basically be the faces of the brand. REAL woman, reaching real goals.

I love it. I believe true beauty lies within. In your drive and determination to reach for the stars. In your hopes and dreams, to be the best version of yourself that you can be. Are you what’s beautiful? YES!

Have I already signed up? Heck yes! So what is my goal you ask? My goal is to run a 27:00 5k. It will actually have to be a training run and not an actual 5k because racing season is pretty much over here. I know it will be hard, but I also know with the help and accountability of the campaign I can do it.

This goal is important to me because last year my 5k personal record was a 27:18. It was on a hilly and hot course, and I was so close to hitting that sub 28:00 mark I had coveted for so long. This year, due to a lot of half marathons and a stress fracture, I only ran one 5k and I was not in the best shape to do so. I don’t want another year to go by before I reach my goal, I want to do it now!

I placed in my age group last year, but didn’t reach my goal of a sub 28:00 5k

I plan to reach my goal by doing the following:

1.) Run 3-4 times per week, with at least one speed workout on the treadmill

2.) Lift weights for a stronger, healthier (injury-free) body

3.) Practice yoga at least once a week to help keep my body limber and flexible

4.) Cross train at least once a week to keep my body guessing and to be overall more healthy

Here at Running With Sass, you know I value fitness and health as well as looking cute while getting fit. Under Armour has an amazing line up of apparel that can help you look great while training for your goal. Personally, I am loving the idea of the slash capri, the Armour bra, and the charge RC storm running shoe. These products look super cute and I am sure they would help me on my way to my goal.

So you want in on this awesome project? Have a goal in mind? Go sign up on the Under Armour website and get going!

  1. Those slash capris are super cute! I’m also intrigued by the Yoga Bra. Their whole Studio line looks like fun!

  2. Rachelle says:

    Is “I want everything on the Under Armor website” acceptable? I could always use more sports bras or running shorts, but specifically, the slash capris are pretty clutch.

    Won’t let me comment above :(
