The Sports Bra Dilemma #tbt

Originally posted on FIT IS A FEMINIST ISSUE:
Under Armor Sports bra. Lately I’ve been looking for something very specific in a sports bra: something that fits comfortably without chafing, provides adequate support, and dries quickly.  I have been fortunate in the first two categories, probably because I’m not all that busty anyway.  I find…

Will we go back to wearing ‘real’ bras in a post-pandemic world? Sam isn’t sure

It’s spring and I’m swapping clothes around, from winter to summer. The fall and spring stuff stays out year round. But I store out of season clothes in the basement in plastic storage tubs, as one does if you only have one closet and a chest of drawers. I have friends who don’t swap clothes… Continue reading Will we go back to wearing ‘real’ bras in a post-pandemic world? Sam isn’t sure

#StayAtHome Sam looks different

As you know I’m not much of a fan of working from home. But I’m here along with most of you, doing it. I appreciated Cate’s #wfh words of wisdom and advice.

Nicole shared this to our bloggers’ Facebook group and even though it’s an ad (I know) I wanted to share it with you.… Continue reading I know it’s an ad but I like it

What do you wear when working and exercising at home?

Unlike Cate, up until the pandemic, I’ve never been much of a work from home person. I’ve been a pretty strict compartmentalizer. In my usual life, I relax at home and work at work (mostly). I wear work clothes at work, gym clothes at the gym, bike clothes on my bike, and PJs (or PJ… Continue reading What do you wear when working and exercising at home?

My latest sports bra

I was so sad in September when my 5 year old high impact bra suffered a catastrophic failure during a soccer match. I loved that bra. It contained and supported my bust in this lovely engineered unpadded bra. It was so lovely I save it only for running and soccer. Goodbye Old Faithful. Cycling I… Continue reading My latest sports bra

Social distancing with The Swarm

This Sunday we hit peak Zwift, 34,940 riders. I was part of that peak, riding with the Swarm, a ride for women riders many of whom are new to Zwift, led by experienced Zwifters.
