I could never get myself to go running through the streets of Manhattan regularly- even though I consider myself a long-distance runner. In my mind, a flashback of an episode of RHONY comes to mind when I think of a true New Yorker in their element working out- the Real Housewife of New York (only for 2 seasons) Kelly Killoren-Bensimon, in her debut episode running through- wait no, weaving through yellow taxis outside. To me, that is just actually terrifying knowing how aggressive traffic is in NYC and how no one even pays attention even when they are walking. A shoulder shove from a texting walker vs a car wheel rolling over your foot is a very big difference. I went running by the water and through Central Park a few times, but you would never catch me running through traffic.

Morgan Stewart Sport | $130 My Thoughts
Being a Bravo stan, you very well know that I have watched pretty much every show. But, let’s not forget the other reality TV favorite, E! Network. After watching Rich Kids of Beverly Hills, I have been following Morgan Stewart. When I saw her collection with LA Collective: Morgan Stewart Sport, I knew I wanted to try it out. The seamless workout sets were too cute and something that I didn’t already own. I purchased the Andy Set in “Popstar Pink.”
My Review on her workout sets: 5/10 Stars for Polyamide Fabric
The fact that there isn’t a set waistband became a HUGE problem. Maybe it is because I don’t have wide hips, but the law of motion entails that as you start moving, something must fall down if nothing is holding it up. AKA once I started running, cycling, brisk walking, etc. the leggings were falling down, down, down. For $130 total after the promo code, you expect these to be of decent quality right?
Fabric Content: 80% Polyamide 20% Lycra XTRA LIFE actually = no life. After a few washes with hang drying (my workout clothes never see the life of the dryer), there were NUBS everywhere.
Although this set was a flop, it doesn’t mean I am giving up on the brand as a whole, just giving up on this fabric combo
I am super intrigued by these country club tennis cashmere sets. 100% cashmere made in Italy, now this cannot go wrong. Envisioning myself in 100% cashmere biker shorts during #WFH is also a very pleasing thought as well. Very much tempted for another purchase

As for running around the city, a meal on the go is key. Chai tea lattes are always one of my go-tos any time of the year or day. So when I saw that a flavor was vanilla chai I couldn’t have been more excited! It didn’t taste chalky or too spicy. Another favorite is of course Pumpkin Spice, mocha, and salted caramel.
Right after a cycling class, I make my #310shake! The Vanilla Chai is AMAZING and I just mix it in with almond milk and banana. Muscle recovery is 🗝! Use code 310MEGANQ for free shipping. Follow myself @Meganquist and @310nutrition for a chance to win a $500 Gift Card 💪🏻
