Yep, you read that right! There's a company that makes these cute sparkle skirts that you can order to wear at your next race or you can become a part of "Team Sparkle" and they'll send you one of their "traveling skirt's" to wear at your next race and then they'll interview you about your race and post it on their site. Soon after your race event, you have to mail the skirt to the next runner who is due to wear it at the next race destination. They have two skirts that travel...a hot pink one and a turquoise one and they're really bright with a lot of sparkle so you'll definitely shine in your race--from the starting line all the way to the finish line! This is really a neat idea and a fun way to share in the camaraderie that runner's have.
If you've got a running group and you all want to wear the sparkle skirts, you can order a larger quantity and they give you a better deal on them if you order more than 5. What a fun way to celebrate running with your running gal-pals and what a great way to start off 2011! Get on line and get involved with Team Sparkle or order your favorite colored sparkle skirt in time for your next race and SHINE BRIGHT!
Happy running in 2011 everyone :)
