live out loud everyday

So something pretty unusual happened at the weekend, it doesn't happen often in Cumbria, but when it does, you have to make the most of it because you don't know when it might happen again.  Yes, the sun came out, beautiful, glorious sunshine, warm enough to sit outside in short sleeves, and for long enough to actually enjoy it.

And as I get older, I seem more determined to appreciate where I live and my surroundings, and as I've got fitter, I want to spend my days getting out and about, rather than lazing on the sofa all day.  A few years ago, I would genuinely have chosen to spend a sunny Saturday watching TV, then being out in it, or if I was going to have to be out in it, I'd want a cider in hand...although, some of that statement may still stand true.

In fact, this determination to make the most of the great outdoors has even impacted our choice of holiday this year, after watching Carly's Canadian adventure, the Mr and I found ourselves booking a similar trip.  Trekking, zip lines, rafting and bike rides might not be everyone's idea of a holiday, but I can't wait...although, I'm not a total outdoorsy type yet, I pull the plug at camping, so it's all hotels and quaint little lodges for us.

So what do you need for a Canadian adventure? Well only the best of the local sports brands right? And by sheer coincidence I recently became aware of John Lewis' latest addition to their activewear, 'Lole', a brand created by Evelyn Trempe, meaning 'Live Out Loud Everyday' and designed to make you feel good inside and out, whilst still being a practical piece of clothing.

With sun in the sky, and an urge to get out, I decided to put the clothes to the test.  And while I did a lot of posing, a lot of messing around and a quick pit stop outside a pub, I did also go out for a run, and that is when these leggings really proved themselves.  Up until I owned these, I was yet to find a pair of leggings that didn't fall down while running, and there's nothing more annoying, and less glamorous, than trying to hoick up a pair of lycra leggings while you're jogging alongside a busy road.  I kid you not, these leggings did not need pulled up once, so if I have any fellow runners out there who've been on the lookout for the perfect pair then I have just answered your prayers...you can thank me later. 

  So with only 12 weeks to go till our holiday, I'm just trying to decide which extra pieces I need to add to my collection because when I'm running along the streets of Vancouver, I want to look the part...
