Scenes from Soldier Field: Nike Workout + Fashion Show

16 Nov

I mentioned yesterday that I took advantage of a last minute opportunity to attend a Nike Women’s workout event at Soldier Field.

In case my pics didn’t give you this hint, it was awesome. And yes, that is Kristin Cavallari, and yes, she is showing off those shoes I want so desperately. I think I want them as much as Kristin wanted to roundhouse Lauren Conrad in the face circa 2004. And now I’ve been sucked so deep into a Netflix Laguna Beach marathon, I’ve almost convinced myself that chokers and toe rings were kind of cool after all.

  Damn her. That’s what I get for cheating on LC.

Reality TV affinities aside… the evening was divided into two parts: a football-inspired workout with NTC Master Training Marie Purvis, followed by a fashion show highlighting Nike’s newest looks, hosted by Brittney Peyton and none of other than K Cav herself.

The workout consisted of everything from plyometric drills to individualized toning exercises. We were FREEZING on the field (mid-November in Chicago isn’t exactly a walk in the park), but I swiftly forgot about the chill as soon as we started in on some jumping lunges, air squats, and skaters, maintaining a steady jog throughout. With upbeat music vibrating through the stadium as we worked out in droves, I have to admit this was one workout whose end I regretted!

I quickly forgot about how sad I was to stop working out when I realized it was time to head inside to the [heated] club level of the stadium for some warm appetizers, complimentary wine and fantastic fashion show. I kind of want to buy everything I saw, especially these.

Overall, not too shabby for a Wednesday night. Nike made hundreds of ladies feel like a hundred bucks!

This weekend I’ll be hitting the road, heading to Atlanta with JC via car trip (picking my brother up along the way.) I can’t express how stoked I am for a calendar week at home, eating, drinking and yoga’ing myself into oblivion. Don’t worry about me, I packed exclusively stretchy pants.

I’ll post from the road this weekend, but stay tuned early next week for Thanksgiving tips from my Friendsgiving feast!
