Be a trailblazer like Ivanka in lululemon running gear
Ivanka Trump and her husband live by a work hard and work out harder disciplined regimen. It was business as usual as we spied them out for a run in their Washington DC neighborhood with Secret Service in tow.
Now that temperatures have cooled, Ivanka was wearing a gym set perfect for jogging in the crisp winter air. Ivanka's blue and black Michi leggings are a favorite that we've spied on her before, while the adidas Ultra Boost running shoes are a new addition.
And her lightweight stretch jersey zip up jacket is just what we need to get motivated for an outdoor workout.

Sources say that Kushner is the 'high-ranking' administration member mentioned in court Friday.
They said Kushner was responsible for telling Flynn to contact Russian officials back in December 2016, before Trump came to office and Flynn was authorized to do so, about working out a United Nations resolution on Israel.
Prosecutors outlined details from the discussions handled by Flynn - which were to influence a?UN security resolution toward the end of Obama's term.?
Flynn pleaded guilty in federal court for lying to the FBI over the exchange.
Ivanka and Jared?were out and about for about 40 minutes before they returned from their run and it seems it is just what they needed after a chaotic week.?
Ivanka had spent the past few days in India where she attended an annual entrepreneurship summit.
The businesswoman co-hosted the event alongside?India's Prime Minister, Narendra Modi.
At the speaking engagements and dinners, the First Daughter donned a series of printed gowns that were criticized by an Indian media outlet.
The Daily O lambasted Trump for her pricey 'Oriental-style' ensembles which they described as a 'superficial assimilation' of their culture.

The power pair were out and about for the light exercise outing for about 40 minutes
On Saturday, Trump appeared to tweet that he knew Flynn lied to federal investigators over his contact with Russian officials but that he never needed to lie himself because all his their interactions were 'lawful'.
'I had to fire General Flynn because he lied to the Vice President and the FBI. He has pled guilty to those lies. It is a shame because his actions during the transition were lawful. There was nothing to hide!' the tweet said.
The tweet appeared to be a attempt by the president to defend Flynn and disprove suspicion that there was any collusion between his aides and the Kremlin.
Instead, it placed scrutiny back on him and fueled talk of a different offense entirely.?
Stunned political pundits and Democrats quickly linked it to Trump's apparent request of former FBI Director James Comey to go 'easy' on Flynn the day after he was fired.
However, later on Saturday two inside sources told The Washington Post that it was Trump's personal lawyer, John Dowd, who made the tweet. It's not clear if the president saw it before it was posted.
Flynn was fired on February 13. At the time, the president said the decision was based on him misleading Vice President Mike Pence about his interaction with Russian ambassador Sergei Kislyak on December 22.
He did not admit to knowing Flynn lied in an interview with the FBI in January.
On February 14, Trump met with FBI Director Comey. Comey claims he was asked during this meeting to 'go easy' on Flynn and drop the investigation into Russian collusion.
He was fired on May 9 and says it was because he never complied with this alleged request.
The president has never admitted asking him to 'go easy' on Flynn and said that he fired him over his handling of the Hillary Clinton email scandal - which many say won him the election - months earlier.?
It seems the couple needed some fresh air and light exercise following the hectic week
