What inspires you to push yourself harder, faster, longer and stronger? I used to keep a picture of myself when I was 60 lbs heavier (see image below) in my wallet to really drive my motivation. These days, it's a size 4 dress that I wear and display in my closet that remind me to keep up with my workout regime, but sometimes it's as simple as new workout gear to really get me inspired.
I've been in the market for some new kicks for a few months now and in all honesty I just haven't found the pair. I'm just as selective in my workout gear, as I am with everyday wear to pick out something that's unique and shows a bit of personality. For awhile, I was debating on creating a pair of custom NIKE ID shoes, but I didn't want to wait that long to get them...that was over 2 months ago.
If I had ordered them, I wouldn't be writing this post, but I'm so glad I didn't because NIKE is unveiling their limited edition Chicago LunarGlide+3 shoe designed by local artist Tara D. To celebrate its launch, NIKE is inviting YOU to partake in all the festivities this Saturday in Chicago! What better way re-boost your workout routine than to checkout NIKE's latest Fall running/marathon gear complete with a DJ, drinks, food and raffle to keep you motivated. To join in the festivities check out the invite below.
Timing for this event couldn't be better. In exchange for inviting you all to this awesome event, NIKE will send me a pair of these amazeball kicks - the inspiration I need to get my butt in gear for my Mexication Part Dos happening February 2012. I've got 3 months and 20 pounds to lose before I head over to Cabo for my best friend's wedding and my birthday. I can't think of a better way to be motivated than new kicks and the thought of a new figure to celebrate in 3 months. If you're in Chicago, come check out NIKE + Akin's event this Saturday and snag a pair of Tara D's limited edition LunarGlide+3 - I guarantee with these bad boys someone will definitely have shoe envy.
