Hump Day Giveaway: Springing Forward

April 13, 2011
by

Pure + simple: spring.

I’ll spare you the picture, but my closet is a mess. I’ve got summer skirts mixed with wool sweaters mixed with yoga pants. None are in neat piles, let alone even folded well. Back in the day, I used to change over my closet seasonally, but somewhere between Ben being potty-trained and Amelia reading the Ivy + Bean series, it’s become a mash-up of all seasons, all styles.

But spring always gives me a little kick to clean out–and add to it. Who doesn’t love a new white tee (no more pit stains!); a new summer weight pair of jeans (no more sprung out knees!); a pair of shorts that show off how badass your legs are, thanks to how many miles you’ve logged?

Better yet, who doesn’t love a piece of running gear that celebrates spring and is totally cute and functional at the same time?

Spring has sprung, and it's time to dress up for your run!

Enter Nuu-Muu dresses, a company whose tagline I love:
We believe in strong girls and women.
We believe in real bodies and real friends.
We believe in trying really, really hard.
We believe in having fun along the way.

The dresses, which come in a variety of pick-me-up prints, are multifunctional: they go on a run, they go on a ride, they go into Warrior pose. Ranging in sizes from XS to XXL, they fit and flatter nearly every body, and because they don’t have any liners, you can put your choice of compression shorts or leggings, as well as your own sports bra underneath.

In honor of the sprouting daffodils and warming temps, we’re giving away a Nuu-Muu dress of your choice; you can pick the original style or a Ruu-Muu, which has a helpful back storage pocket. In order to for a chance to spruce up your closet (and with it, maybe the motivation to do some spring closet cleaning), you just have to answer this question: if you had a tagline, what would it be?

________________________________________________________________

p.s. From fun florals to basic black: the random winner of the 110% compression capris is Beth Jensen, who, like many of you, voted for the jogging stroller as the best invention for mother runners. Beth writes:

I also think the jogging stroller. There is no way I would have found time or energy to train for 3 marathons (and maintain my sanity) since becoming a mom with out it. Also, the kids love it because they know that usually runs mean a stop at the playground!

E-mail us at run mother at gmail dot com, Beth, to claim your cargo capris! Congrats!

    My friend Elizabeth and I just began a running club on Facebook…https://www.facebook.com/T2M2R.Teacher2Mother2Runner

    Our tag line is “We run to be stronger…for everyone.”

    We are teachers, mothers, and runners. By running, we give ourselves time away from helping everyone else to be stronger individually. In turn, we are then better for everyone :).

    Phoebe: Be Hope

    (Explanation… my Mom’s name is Hope. Two of my sisters have H-names [Heidi & Heather] and I always felt bad as a kid because I didn’t have an H-name. Then, a couple of years ago, a co-worker pointed out that if you change the letters in Phoebe around you get Be Hope. If you knew my mom you’d understand why that is such a daunting but worthy goal. My family and friends seem to be under siege lately with illness and sadness, so this idea is really important to me right now….)

    Dimity, I think the reason I don’t swap over the seaonal closets anymore is because we are fortunate to end up in warm weather places in the winter and we need that stuff. It’s the sign of a good life, enjoy it! But you also give us a good reminder to clear it out, mother’s everywhere need our donated stuff.

    My Tag line “Will Run for food and adult beverages” At my last HM there was a group of women who ran past me around mile 10 and gave me a ‘shout out’ which helped me pick up my dragging behind, I caught up with them at mile twelve and they were walking, I yelled to them “why walk now? There’s beer in 1 MILE”, the one woman said “She’s right, let’s go”. (PS-can’t remember what was on the back of their shirts but it was a clear indicator that adult beverages was also a motivator)

    Replace ‘hot hot’ with ‘cold cold’ and you have a comment on winter running where I live – kooky. Too long for a tag line, I know.
    BTW, I couldn’t wait, and immediately ordered Nuu-Muus for me and my daughter. So cool, and they ship to Canada.

    This is hard! I’d start with “Because I Can.” It’s what’s on my Road ID. That’s what I tell people when they ask why I run.

    But I’ve got “Powered by God” in my head. I use a lot of my runs to pray. I’d like to finish this one out with somethign, but it hasn’t quite gelled yet. I use “Power, Energy, Strength” a lot (power from God, energy from my mind/heart, strength from my body).

    I also use “You got this!” and “Just keep swimming” (a la Dory from Nemo)!

    Not really a tagline but I love the quote I found……

    Runners just do it – they run for the finish line even if someone else has reached it first. ~Author Unknown

    As a new runner, some days it is so hard for me to run. Running doesn’t come easy for me. I have to remind myself to just do it, keep running, and keep putting one foot in front of the other.

    I’m a recovering perfectionist and it’s hard for me to accept that some things will never be exactly the way I want. Like right now, I can’t run due to an injury, so I’m having to swim instead (a distant second choice). Some days I would rather do nothing if I can’t run. I always remind myself “perfection is the enemy of the good”…something I also have to remind myself as a mother, wife, and PhD student with a full time job. Some things only need to be “good enough” and I can’t beat myself up over it when it seems I can’t do it all.

    Mind over miles.

    Multiple meanings:
    1- Running for me is mental, it’s where I process an email I need to write but don’t want to, or a conversation I need to have and don’t want to, or anything that requires my undivided thought process.
    2- I easily psyche out when I think about having to run more than 3 miles, so it’s really, getting that out of my head, and just accomplishing the miles.
    3-I love alliteration!

    ‘I am a knitter runner mother…’

    Like running, knitting is therapy. Unlike running, I can do it when I have 5 minutes to spare – in the waiting room at the doctor or osteopath or waiting for the kettle to boil. Both knitting and running are very integral to my sanity right now!!

    PS. I ran my first ever race yesterday – Yay!! 5.2k, ran all the way πŸ™‚ Given I struggled to run 60 seconds & walk 90 seconds for 30 minutes at the start of February, I am VERY pleased with myself!! I just hope I’m on track for the 8K I’ve signed up for in 3 weeks!
