Team Sparkle Giveaway

One of my favorite signs from a spectator while racing is:

You don't Sweat you SPARKLE

I do sweat, I love the idea that as a female runner I can be feminine while giving it my all on the run. Enter Team Sparkle HERE.I was introduced to Team Sparkle through Nuun, two of the founders of Team Sparkle Carrie HERE and Kelly HERE were in my Vanmates for Hood to Coast. I LOVE these ladies!! And I was proud to test the Team Sparkle Skirt for the first time at See Jane Run.

What a great way to add some color and cover up the BORING capris. My sister and I go loads of compliments on the run which is always fun. The best part about the Team Sparkle Skirts are you can wear them over anything, so light weight you will hardly know you are wearing a skirt.

Team AfterNuun Delight wore the skirts for Hood to Coast and they were GREAT! Ideal for relays making teammates easy to spot on the course and for handoffs.
I also wore my Blue skirt on 9-11 for the Iron Girl 5K, showing my pride in Red White and Blue.
Team Sparkle Skirts are
TALL MOM APPROVED!!

How do I Sparkle - I sparkle by sharing a smile with people in the halls at work. I figure a smile is free and it might brighten up someone else day. Plus when you smile it just makes you feel better!

I'm torn between which color I would order, if I think about my next race it would probably be red or green, however I'm partial to the pink simply because I got the honor of wearing it as part of the the Team Sparkle Traveling Skirt! Whatever color it'll be bright and bold!

I sparkle when I race by wishing all the other runners encouragement as they go by! No better way to shine then to be spreading cheer...even at the 10k when my local running competition was beating me and came back from the turn around, I still put a big smile on and honestly cheered her on to catch the girl in front of her.

I would choose either the pink or purple sparkle skirt.... So hard to choose just one!! Probably purple ;)

Kristen said...

Liked them on Facebook. Can't believe I hadn't done that yet.

Kristen said...

I sparkle every day of the week...at the gym, on the run, being mama to three little studs of my own. The skirt would just further enhance the obvious...I am queen 'o this household!!

Kristen said...

I'd choose green for a shamrock run or black for a subtle sparkle.

What makes me sparkle? I sparkle because of my running girls and the support of my family. Love all of them. Couldn't do any of this running without them!

I'm at a terrible loss as to what color to choose. I think initially I would get a purple one because I love purple, but then I'd be forced to buy more. It's so hard to choose!!!
