Fit 6: Style Blogger Kate Makes San Francisco Her Fitness Playground in the Sonar Capri
Kate Ogata, style blogger and startup professional, takes a break from her busy schedule to explore her favorite city—San Francisco. Kate rocks the Sonar Capri, proving that with the right gear, you can turn any workout into an adventure. Check out more blogger stories featuring our Fit 6 pants right here.
A few months ago, I went from working remotely to a full-time gig for a startup located in the heart of San Francisco. Taking care of yourself becomes a necessity when you’re working such long hours, so it’s important for me to have a little “me” time when I can. My favorite thing to do is sneak my workouts into impromptu solo weekend excursions around San Francisco; there is nothing more inspiring than the sights and smells of the Bay Area. It feels like the entire city is my outdoor playground!
Running the Lincoln Park Steps
I’ve lived in four different neighborhoods in San Francisco, and each one has its own quirks and personality. Case in point: the Lincoln Park Steps. It’s a gorgeous work of public art! But don’t let the bright colorful mosaic fool you—these steps are a tough, high-impact workout! Fortunately the Dobby Sonar Capri banished every jiggle and bounce with its ultra supportive compression fabric.
Next stop, the Legion of Honor. This fine arts museum is just as striking on the outside as the works of art it holds on the inside. The Legion of Honor marks the halfway point on my run through the city, so it’s a great place to catch my breath, do some stretches and complete some light circuit training. The Lava Sonar Capri is so eye-catching against the white marble pillars that a cyclist shouted, “nice Athleta tights” as she rode by!
The cool thing about the Sonar capri is that it wicked the sweat away so I stayed comfortable throughout my run. I only wish I could say the same for my hair!
Shopping in the Fillmore
On Sundays, I like to sneak in a little shopping and one of my favorite places to go is the Athleta store on Fillmore Street, a bustling street lined with cute boutiques and great restaurants. Now that fall is in full swing, I was looking to layer up for cooler weather. I picked up the super cozy Passage Sweater Vest in Oatmeal Donegal to throw over my Pure Top in Bright White. I paired this with the black Sonar Capri and New Balance sneakers to complete my look.
