Swirlgear review and discount!

I am always looking for new products to try and share with my readers and it's always great when I can write about local companies. Swirlgear is a Chicago-based start-up run by women that provides functional, cute, and affordable running clothing for women. I've actually been an ambassador since this summer but I decided to wait to write this post because the gear I reviewed is more for the fall/winter. A great perk for my readers is that you can use code 1035 at checkout to get free shipping!

In the pictures I'm wearing the Pink Running Hoodie and Black Shorts (size small in both). I actually took this outfit hiking in Wisconsin and it was perfect! The hoodie is unique because good running hoodies are hard to find. It is stretchy with a good fit with thumbholes and even a pony tail hole (see below). I haven't tried running with the hoodie up yet because it hasn't been cold enough, but it seems like it would stay in place because it's secured by my ponytail. I also like the half-zip for ventilation when you get hot. If you don't love pink like me, try the camo color!

I'm not in love with the shorts for running because they are too long for my taste. They worked for hiking and other sports, like kickball. I'm hoping the new line will have more options for running bottoms, like spandex. Tank tops will also be in the new line that is supposed to come out soon!

I'm excited to be a Swirlgear ambassador and tell my readers about a great women-owned company. An even better, Swirlgear supports Bright Pink!! In fact, if you make a purchase this week (until Oct. 31), you will get 10% off and 10% will be donated to Bright Pink (use code "Pink" at checkout). Bright Pink is the only nonprofit that focuses on breast cancer prevention and education and I ran the Chicago Marathon to raise money for Team Bright Pink!

Support my marathon even more by buying some awesome running clothes this week!
