Athletic Style for the Finish Line

I know I’ve inundated you, dear readers, with running-related posts, but there’s seriously no better time to break out the comfortable basics than after racing a marathon. I made my 42.2-kilometre debut this past Sunday at the Mississauga Marathon, and let’s just say I left it all out on the course to earn a 3:32:58 finish and a sweet medal. Anticipating that I’d need some rest and relaxation afterwards (not to mention a few beers), I packed what you see me wearing here.

My favorite piece is the beautiful red henley I have on, which I received as a gift courtesy of Cory Vines. Relatively new to the scene, the Montreal-based brand makes athletic clothing and lifestyle digs, both of which are beyond comfortable. I love this shirt because it feels like fine Pima cotton, but it’s made of a tech fabric that shares moisture-wicking properties with Cory Vines’ sportier stuff.

(This particular colour was discontinued, but I hear they have a new line in the pipe.)

To provide some colorful contrast, I dug out a favourite pair of chino shorts from the Gap, cut to just the perfect length above my knees. The Feiyue kicks I have on are popular among practitioners of Kung Fu. Needless to say, they’re a dream for my sore feet.

And, what do you know? Red, white and blue are the official colors of the marathon I just ran. Fancy that.

Now, to enjoy the sun and put my feet up. Check out the rest of my outfit below.

Know what's #AlwaysClassic? Lazy Sunday walks through the park. Simple, casual style. Warm sunshine on your face. Doesn't get better than that. Thank you @reebokclassicca for the fresh pair of spring sneaks. #HamOnt #ootd #wiwt #style #menswear #reebokclassic Spring fling. 🌷 #ootd #wiwt #wiwtd #style #fashion #menswear #hamont #springtide #styleblogger Was feelin' the love at #LoveLocke. First stop: @delirious_burger_co for a cheeseburger. (All hail the return of the classic burger counter!) Then @donutmonsterhamilton for a grab-bag six-pack of mystery donuts. A visit to @shopkitsu and a few others - how awesome was it seeing the whole 'hood mobilizing to support local? See ya soon, @lockestshops. #HamOnt #ootd #wiwt #wiwtd #menswear #styleblogger #style #fashion The latest experiment by @meritbrewing is Raspberry Brownie Nowhere Imperial Stout... quite the experience from start to finish! First sip delivered strong raspberry acidity with a boozy kick - honestly, Tylenol was the first thing that came to mind. How's that for nostalgia? The flavours quickly mellowed into a sweet berry liqueur as the dark chocolatey notes emerged, fulfilling its delicious promise. (And boy did I enjoy the rest of my night thanks to its hefty 9.6 ABV.) #hamont #beerporn #instabeer #craftbeer #beertography #stout #ontariocraftbeer #cheers Back on the road. It feels like close to a year since I've last run - life comes at you pretty fast. Let's just say it felt great! #running #hamont #gagepark #runhamont Tonight's armchair sipper. Roasted malts and earthy hops imbue it with a richness reminiscent of South American coffee. I have yet to make the pilgrimmage to @cliffordbrewing's new East End location, but I can tell you it'll be soon! (And for more of this heavenly stuff.) #HamOnt #beer #beerporn #instabeer #craftbeer #cliffordbrewing #ontariocraftbeer #drinklocal
