Winner of Saucony Spring Outfit, and Portland Solidarity Run
In times of crisis, strength can be gained from being with others–whether online, like we all have been this week on our Facebook page and this website, or in person. So Wednesday evening, after dropping off my 7-year-old son at a baseball game, my running partner Molly, her older daughter, and I headed to the east bank of the Willamette River for a group run, organized by the Portland Triathlon Club to show support for Boston. Here are some iPhone images from the life-affirming event.
Best line of the evening, from the organizers before the run: “You may shake us, but you’ll never break us.”
Another bright spot in the week? Getting to bestow an adorable, hard-working Saucony running outfit on one gal. For telling us the flower that stops her in her tracks, she’ll get a Transcendence Jacket, ideal for capricious spring weather that is sunny one moment, blustery the next. Underneath, she’ll be sporting a Run Lux Short Sleeve shirt, adding comfort and color to any run. Finally, a pair of Ignite Tight Capri–warm enough to keep chill (and chafing) at bay, yet not stifling like full-length pants.
The winner is:
Angela: “Lilacs! They’re already in bloom here in Southern California and I love their scent!”
Angela, please email us at runmother [at] gmail [dot] com, letting us know what size top and botton you wear and your full name and mailing address. Everyone else, go on a group run or a run with a friend. We all need some extra human interaction this week. XO
