Team Sparkle Skirt Giveaway

After a long, hot summer of many training ups and downs, marathon week is finally here! I’m trying to stay relaxed, rest a lot, and focus on positive thinking to help me run strong next Sunday.

If that fails, I’m adopting the following strategy:

To get my mind off the race and celebrate the end of another training cycle, I figured we should do something fun. And what’s more fun than a sparkly giveaway?

I know you’ve seen them – those flashy, sequined skirts that powered Team After-nuun Delight 200 miles across the state of Oregon. And if you’ve been thinking about buying a Team Sparkle skirt of your very own, today is your lucky day. The girls at Team Sparkle have generously agreed to provide one Health on the Run reader with a Sparkle Skirt in the color/size of their choosing.

Now I know what you might be thinking: Running skirts are not for me. I’ll stick to my less girly articles of clothing, thankyouverymuch.

If that’s the case, I wouldn’t really blame you. I’m not really a skirt person either. In fact, when I tried a running skirt for the first time last spring, I was less than impressed. So I’ll admit that I some doubts about running in a skirt for the entire Hood to Coast relay.

But then I tried it on. I loved the way it fit over any running bottoms that I wanted to wear, spandex or not. And I loved the way it moved when I ran.

My first run in the skirt was through the hottest temperatures I had raced in all summer. Yet suddenly it didn’t matter. For over 6 miles on black unshaded asphalt, my fellow relay runners and I battled the heat. And the skirt that I thought would annoy me for the entire run ended up being the best thing about it. There’s nothing like tearing down a long stretch of road wearing a flashy racing outfit. When I started passing people in that flashy green skirt, I was hooked.

The girls who were wearing the sparkle skirts soon became recognizable on the relay course. Which only fueled my determination to run faster. Running fast when you’re dressed the part and people sort of expect it is one thing. But when you’re decked out in a sparkling skirt and matching from head to toe?

Something else, altogether.

And if you think the skirts are only for females, think again. There have been some super fast male runners who have been known to rock a sparkle skirt.

Like Team Sparkle on Faceboook and leave a comment (here) that you did.

I typically don’t love giveaways that make things complicated for readers to win something, but then again, it’s nice to have a few extra chances to win, right? So if you want extra entries, you can*:

  • Leave a comment telling me why you want a Team Sparkle skirt and/or where you’d wear it
  • Follow @runTeamSparkle on Twitter

*Please leave a separate comment for each entry

Edited to add: Contest will run through Tuesday, November 1st. (Sorry I left out that very important detail!)

Team Sparkle has provided me with one skirt to give to a reader. Although the company also provided my team with sparkle skirts to wear during the Hood to Coast relay last August, I did not receive anything else in exchange for this giveaway. I truly love the product and would like to spread that love to a reader.

Winner will receive one Team Sparkle skirt in the color/size of their choosing and will have a week to claim their prize before a backup winner is chosen.
