Sporty April ChallengePosted: April 2, 2014
I really want to make this garment. I mean really want to make it. It is Melissa Fehrs XYT workout top. I had intended to make one for my daughter – but after my alteration binge she says she has enough exercise tops at present and so I can try it for me first. Woot woot!

Now, I do enjoy a nice workout and have even been known to join a 5k ‘race’. I will never be the worlds fastest, nor do I want to be. That said I hate the cold wet weather we have had and have proved myself to be a dedicated warm weather exerciser. However, I am (I suppose) ‘a lady of a certain age’ and there is a family history of osteoporosis so it is in my interest to get my butt outside and jog a bit. A new top and a bit of sunshine should help things along don’t you think?
In addition to designing workout gear Melissa runs marathons, and I know will be running at this years London marathon. As my daughter is also be running this year I will be looking out for them both! Given that pedigree I think I can be assured that this workout top will be a goody. Melissa is also encouraging us all to get up and get active by posting a ‘Spring Race Challenge’.
All of the details are on her blog, and I am certainly ‘in’. I am therefore declaring the XYT top my GAM for April. Let stash diving commence!
