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.
Watch this video to get a better look at the Jette:
And a couple more photos of yours truly in various Jette skirt prints:

I like to get back into a routine once the kids have started school again.
I suppose my favorite thing is the cider mills start to open and everything pumpkin is on sale again. Other than that, I don’t like summer ending!
My favorite thing about the last days of summer is reminiscing on our summer memories.
What I love about the last days of Summer is that the kids go back to school and the hope of cooler temps around the corner.
The weather starts cooling down
The weather starts cooling down and it is almost time for Halloween
the weather starts cooling down and school starts…feels like a new year starting!
the weather starts to cool down
I like that it’s getting cooler!
Being able to enjoy the longer days with more sunshine than the fall and winter months.

My favorite thing about summer ending is that fall is coming!
The weather starts getting just cool enough
My favorite thing is knowing that Fall is coming and yummy coffee drinks!
The cooler weather for running and that means the dogs can join us.
Knowing that our fall vacation is coming!
I love the cooler mornings that turn into warm afternoons. It means fall in is the air!
I homeschool, so my absolute favorite thing about summer is that all the kids go back to school, and my kids and I can enjoy parks and museum and pools and splash pads without crowds for the last days of summer!
Wish it was cooler! Maybe in October where I am, but I wear skirts year round!
My favorite thing is the kids going back to school.
My fave thing about Autumn running is that life gets back into a routine so it’s easier to fit running into our lives. Also capri pants. I love them. But I also love running skirts and I REALLY hope I win.
My favorite thing about the last days of summer is how cooperative the kids are with getting things done because they know their last days of freedom are ending soon and finishing their rooms/dishes/etc. faster means more soccer/game/pool time before school starts!
Fall colors in Colorado … just caught some auburn leaves popping up on my early morning run this morning. 🙂 <3 fall
My favorite thing about the ending of summer is that now I have the house to myself 🙂
Fall is my favorite season. I’m not big on summer heat, sun, and bugs. (I come from a long line of pasty white people from northern climates who were not meant to see sun, and bugs think I am delicious!)
Love the fall. Plus it means watching my kids play the sports they love…hockey, soccer, and dance.
The cooling of the weather making it easier to run and breathe! Woo!
trying to fit in lots of fun here in Michigan before school starts in a week – it’s hot here this week
My favorite thing about the last days of summer are the beautiful sunsets and sunrises.
Buying school supplies but knowing they don’t need to be used yet!
My favorite thing is those last warm and sunny days. Although fall is my favorite time to run, that sun is amazing!
Love being able to run earlier in the evening…even though daylight is shorter.
Fall is the BEST time of year for running–love the cooler weather!
I love how the cooling weather seems to be making the running easier 🙂
love the fit of the jette!
Getting back into a routine with my kids!
Love fall, even up here in Minnesota – just to get rid of the humidity and mosquitoes! They just take the fun out of summer sometimes!
Living in Texas, my favorite thing is the cooler weather!
