How timely! I just read an article about this on the New York Times Well blog: http://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/08/18/phys-ed-the-right-kind-of-sports-bra/#

I promise this isn't spam--it's a link to a real article. :) Basically it says that the right bra for those of us overly blessed in that area doesn't yet exist, but that it is in the works in Australia. That said I've had tons of luck with the Enell bra--spendy, but it works, even during a marathon.

Thanks, Lana! I was looking for a reference article when I wrote this and didn't find much. The Enell is certainly the gold standard in sports bras!

One thing my Mom always stressed to em is buy a good bra! When you have a good bra and a good pair of shoes a woman is happy she says. As funny as it sounds it is so true! I stressed that to my own daughter and she now arees. The best way to get a bra is go to a place like Victoria Secret to get meassureed. They are tought well on how to do it properly. Then I suggest buying a bra someplace else. It is so important to have a good fitting one for so many reasons.

Great article!

Q- may I quote you/this in a future newsletter... well done.

It's like a train wreck, you can't help but watch and you feel badly for staring (not b/c you're a perv, but b/c you feel their pain)

  • Running is Funny
    This guy is great, so funny! Love his Carnival of Running entries.
  • Map your Running Routes
    There are several sites that do this, but this is the one I've used for a while. Not only can you map your route in detail (I recommend the "hybrid" setting, which puts the map on top of a satellite photo so you can see the sidewalks in your neighborhood), you can also search through routes other people have saved on the site and find a route you hadn't thought of!

    More Penguin, this one a q and a blog that's worth reading.
  • Penguin Chronicles
    John "the Penguin" Bingham is a champion for slow runners, though he's sped up in recent years (at least by my standards). Nonetheless, he speaks to all runners and is funny and accessible.

    Galloway's walk/run method changed my perspective on running and made marathoning a possibility for me and many other people.

    I admit, I'm an organizational junkie--I obsessively mind my calendar and to do list, and I like keeping things efficient and orderly. Zen Habits has lots of good tips that keep me in line.

    Jennette Fulda's blog started out as a weight loss journal, chronicling her journey losing half her weight. Now she continues writing about life in a thoughtful, clever way.
