All my life, my mom has been this little petite woman with a slight aversion to fitness.
When I first told her that I was planning to run a half marathon, her response was not filled with pride and encouragement; no, it was “Well that sounds awful. I wouldn’t even want to drive 13 miles.”
When we’re driving and see someone running she says things like, “I wonder who’s chasing that poor man.”
I spent years asking her to workout with me, and she every time, she would literally laugh in my face.
But then out of nowhere, my mom decided that she was going to change her ways. When she asked me if I could show her “how the gym works” I felt dazed an confused.
Is this a joke? Are you making fun of me?
No, she insisted it was, in fact, real life. Real life it was, my friends. My mom is now something of a gym rat. She walks on the treadmill and watches Ellen. She does “the weights.” Sometimes, both in the same day.
She’s basically doing the damn thing and I could not be more proud of her. So when Champion offered to send Kate some cute workout gear for Mother’s Day, I was stoked.
She received the (surprise) package and called me saying, I’ve got something here for The Lunchbox Diaries. Why the hell did they send it here?
No, sweet mother, it’s a gift for you.
REALLY?!?!? HOW WONDERFUL!!
She’s the cutest. My mom adores these clothes, mainly because she’s a diva and won’t go to the gym without looking cute. And cute she looks, folks!
Champion gear makes her feel confident about stepping into the gym, and for that I couldn’t be more thankful.
Kate says the clothes fit “just right” and she enjoys how she doesn’t feel bogged down by a “bulky workout clothes.” If you’re interested in copying Kate’s swag (ha) check out these shorts, shirts, and jackets.
They’re mom AND daughter approved
