Call me a sucker for marketing, but after I saw the running tanks that the New Balance sponsored Team Off Balance girls wore for the Reach the Beach Relay last month, I *had* to have one. I loved the color, the style and I just happened to be in the market for some new, quality running tanks.
I bought the Get Back Racerback tank a few weeks ago and it came Saturday. I was super excited to try it out so I took it for a little spin Monday afternoon. Literally…I wore it to spin class 🙂
After the class, even though I was super sweaty, it wasn’t stuck to me or all wet on the inside so I didn’t even really feel sweaty! In fact, it dried so quickly that I wore it again yesterday morning for my speed workout. And let me tell you, I NEVER, EVER wear workout clothes twice without washing them first.
Plus it also fits great and is flattering.
Please ignore the unmade bed in my in-laws’ guest bedroom where I am sleeping this week 🙂
I also love that the racerback portion is made of a mesh material that is thin and cool for super hot runs.
The one I have is “Virtual Pink with Black”, but it comes in 5 more fun colors:
I currently have my eye on the lime green color and will probably order it before I head out to Hood to Coast in August!
The top is $43.99, which is a little pricey for me since I usually buy Target running tanks, but not nearly as expensive as Lululemon or some of the other high end brands. I ordered it online direct from New Balance, but I saw it on other on-line sites as well. I haven’t seen it at Dick’s or my local running store, but I wasn’t looking specifically for the top at the the last time I was in either of them, so you may be able to find it locally and avoid shipping costs. Unfortunately I also wasn’t able to find it discounted anywhere, but I will certainly keep my eye out!
Since I have absolutely zero affiliation with New Balance and I wasn’t compensated in any way, you can be sure that I just really like this tank top and wanted to share it with you as one of my new favorite pieces of running gear 🙂 .
