1. shutupandrun.net

Blog Post Excerpt: So many running apparel items look the same. The designs start to run together. YMX by Yellowman deviates from the norm and brings us some colorful, playful patterns that are lightweight and performance material. full post.

Excerpt from the “About Me” tab of the blog: I love to run. I discovered it 2 1/2 years ago. Like I do most things, I went from zero to 26.2 miles. No half marathons for me, no running cross country in high school. I just set my mind to it, trained and crossed the finish line. In April 2011 I came back from a hip stress fracture to run the Boston Marathon. I didn’t win, but I crossed the same finish line as the winner did. I’m proud of that.

I also love to write. I believe in holding nothing back. I believe in telling the truth. I believe in being real. I’m sure it offends some, but I’m also sure it resonates with more. more here.

Excerpt from blog post: I wore the shirt on a 20-mile run outside, then on a 8 mile track workout (with the armsleeves), and then again this morning on a 12-mile run on the treadmill. I love it! I think this is the lightest running shirt I have ever worn. full post here.

Excerpt from the “About Me” tab of the blog: I work (from home) as an adoption coordinator for special needs kids in Ethiopia for Adoption Advocates International. It is a rewarding and yet stressful job.

I am a runner, and running has given me so much. Running has helped me lose and keep off 75lbs. Running has given me a sense of personal satisfaction and accomplishment. Running has helped me reduce my stress and increase my patience. Running has helped me make taking care of myself a priority and better balance my life. Running has given me a wonderful friendship that I desperately needed. Running helped me find a part of myself… a part that is athletic, strong, tough, brave, determined, and confident…a part of me that I didn’t know existed. Every day running betters my body, mind and soul. more here.

Blog post excerpt: The fabric is great, I’m used to the tech shirts I receive at races, but this was something completely different.  The jersey is made of a “MadKool” fabric, it was very light and soft, and a bit stretchy, with a bonus UV Protection of 50+.  In addition, it’s wrinkle and abrasion resistant, which is nice, especially when your dog jumps up on you, while you’re wearing the jersey, as you take him for a run. Full post here.

From the “About Me” section of the blog: I’m a wife and mother of two, who left the wilds of NYC for the wilds of Central NY. I am a runner, with one marathon, and one triathlon under my belt. Next up, the NYC Marathon, I’m raising research funds for The Children’s Tumor Foundation. I appreciate good food, I love to cook healthy meals, but I also indulge when the mood strikes. I’m a Stay At Home Mom. Basically, I’m all about balance, as I try to figure it all out. more here.

Blog post excerpt: Things I liked about the Tribal Sea Running Tee:

1. It is super light weight and silky to the touch (I kinda want to wear it for everyday clothes)
2. The fit is flattering
3. It is SO SO SO comfortable to wear!
4. The colors are bright and the design is fun
5. I LOVE the sweat wicking material, it dries super duper fast
6. After washing it a few times it doesn’t seem to have lost any of it’s brightness
7. CHAFE free!!! 🙂
8. There is a pocket in the back that is big enough for a GU

Full post here.

There’s no “About Me” section of this blog, but there is this in the header:

Luck is taking the opportunities God gives you and making the most out of them… this is my journey about making the most of the life He’s blessed me with and training for races while going back to school and planning a wedding!
