We're at the halfway point of our 5K of the Holidays so you should be nice and warmed up by now. As a reminder: We'll announce the winners of the Monday through Thursday winners this Saturday, December 8. Continued good news, Canadian mother runners: You can enter this contest. The items in today's giveaway have got you set from head to toe.
If you've been listening to a word I'd said all year, you already know how much I love yurbuds Inspire Female In-ear Headphones: They offer quality stereo sound while not blocking out ambient noise (like an approaching car or your running stroller passenger asking for more Cheerios), and they sit comfortably in the ear without bouncing around or falling out.
I don't have much in the chesticles department, but I'm still super-picky about what sports bra I wear. The Champion Spot Comfort High Support meets all my criteria, from a back hook-and-eye closure for easy on-and-off to no-bounce support to a liner of super-effective, smooth wicking material. Spot-on comfort is more like it.
Dimity and I both stepped out in Team Sparkle running skirts at the Disneyland Half-Marathon in September. We're not very girly-girl but smiles burst onto our faces the moment we slipped on the skirts. So fun, so perfect for adding some sizzle and sass to a running costume. We'll be sportin' Sparkle Running Skirts again when we run the Princess Half in a couple of months.
In a mother runner's get-up-and-go lifestyle, sometimes we spend half the day in our capris before we go for a run or we don't get a chance to strip out of our workout wear post-run. But we like to look presentable or, even better, cute. Enter a Sweet Spot Skirts reversible skirt. These cotton lovelies are meant to be worn over capris, tights, or shorts; with rows of snaps at the comfortably wide waistband, one size fits sizes 2-14.
What would be a head-to-toe giveaway without a pair of running shoes? These kicks, Dimity's new favorites from Altra, The Superior, are brand, brand new. They offer great grip and trail feel, but still some protection between you and the dirt.
Two fortunate mother runners will win one of each of these items--a pair of yurbuds, a Champion Sports Bra (of her choice), a Team Sparkle running skirt (color of her choice), a Sweet Spot Skirt (either a Pay It Forward or a Diamonds Are a Girls BFF pattern), and a pair of Altra The Superior shoes--by answering this question in the Comments below: What is your favorite race? It could be a distance--you rock 5Ks or can't get enough of marathons--or a specific race like the Tinkerbell half-marathon or your town's turkey trot.
