Note: those of you who don’t have the patience to read my ramblings, scroll down to the bottom of this post and enter the giveaway using the Rafflecopter widget. But you’re missing out on some deep — very deep — thoughts!
Can you believe Summer is almost over? Can you believe I was the fifty-gazillionth person to ask that question?
As some mourn the end of Summer, the kids are back in school and I can think of one group of people who are thrilled at the prospect:
Runners, I mean runners!
Runners training for all kinds of events — or those not training for anything at all — are thinking, Yessssss, finally I walk out the door for my run and can feel the early morning breeze, the soft – not scorching – touch of the sun on my shoulders, the moist dew of the grass covering my ankles as I stretch.
Well, not all of us are not that poetic.
Finally, I get to wear my cute knee-high compression socks!
The best part of September and October for me is that it’s no longer as hot as the pits — even at noon, for those of us runch-ers — but it’s still warm enough to wear cute running skirts. And pair them with knee-high compression socks, if you like.
So what better time than this first day of September to host an awesome giveaway for one of my favorite running skirts ever, the Jette skirt from Skirt Sports?
The Jette is the most versatile skirt I own. I wear it to run, race, hike, watch tennis, shop, drop kid off at school… everywhere. It’s one of the shorter models Skirt Sports makes: the front is 12 inches long and the back, 13 inches. It has an elastic waistband with drawstring (to adjust, if needed) and a small hidden pocket for keys, cash, credit card or ID; the shorties have silicone lining so they don’t ever ride up, and two side pockets to store gels, your phone, or anything you might want to take with you.
I ran the Santa Rosa Marathon in one of my many Jette skirts (the Tantrum print) and had plenty of room for everything I needed to carry on my 26.2-mile journey.
