Packing for a five-week trip to Europe, where I expect it will be hot, humid, crowded and well, at times a bit unpleasant, the obvious question was “What am I going to wear?”
Fortunately, thanks to the great and good folks at AETHER (“eee-thur,” so you know), I am fully prepared.
Following an introduction from John Fray to Nicky Byrne, the manager of the Aspen store, we shared our race2walk2016 program with the AETHERmtn team. Without missing a beat, they immediately came back with a “we’d like to help.” It seems that they were fans of Amanda and her mission and, being good eggs in the community, thought that putting me in their clothes was a good idea.
And so … AETHER decked me out me with running clothes, and city clothes, too, for my trip. I packed them up and still had plenty of room. My bag had not been so light in years. It’s in the cloth. The fabrics are stretchy, they dry fast and they revert to like-new right away.
The store, on the Cooper Avenue Mall, is one of the coolest shops in town. The clothes are fitted, comfortable, reasonably priced. I felt great in everything I tried on. Shorts. Pants. Jackets. T’s. Check it out.
I’ll keep you posted on how they work as I head out on my running journey.
