Count von Count and the number 2.
The giveaway goodies:
1 - A pair of 4ARMS sleeves
2 - A complementary race entry into the Griffith Park Trail Half Marathon (November 17, 2012).
By now you have probably guessed that I choose my workout clothes for function, not form. I'm trying to win a race, not a fashion show.
But form and function are not always mutually exclusive.
I have to admit, when I opened the package from INKnBURN, I was skeptical. The clothing looks fantastic. Had they sacrificed wearability for cool designs?
