Love Running skirts, have yet to own one. Love pretty much all their skirts...especially the black with royal blue stripes. I also like the spring skirts.

Anne said...

Will be linking this on my blog :)

Anne said...

I've never run a marathon, but I can tell you this...enjoy yourself!

Anne said...

Only two races so far...but, the night before, I just make sure EVERYTHING is ready...down to the last detail. I have a list that I follow.

Anne said...

GOOD LUCK!!!!!! I can't wait to read all about your race :)

I am a follower and have been for a while!

K said...

I LOVE the running skirt! SO awesomely cool in the heat and humidity! I have been eyeing one of the plaids or the pink or black dot....really too many to choose from!

K said...

Hmm...not sure on the tip as I have only run 5k's so I don't really think I am qualified. How about stay hydrated!

K said...

My routine is to lay out everything I can(including breakfast), double check it, set a few alarms and try and sleep! Then I get to the race place early and pace until go time!

I love running skirts! I have the black and white polka dot one already and would love any of the others. I have my eye on a pink one someday.

Karen said...

The longest race I've ever run is a 5k (I'm working towards a 10K), so I don't think my advice counts for much...but make sure you double check your alarm clock.

Tricia said...

I LOVE runningskirts.com! Their "running" style is my fav! I need a basic black.

MJ said...

I'm a (old) follower!! :)

Tricia said...

I love the idea of something to keep my shoes from smelling :)

MJ said...

I have only done 5ks, but my biggest tip would be to believe in yourself!! You've trained for this, and you won't be last...no matter how much you believe you might be lol.

Tricia said...

My marathon advice?

HAVE fun! You've put in the miles, completed training and now you can ENJOY!

Tricia said...

And I always have everything laid out ahead of time. And make sure you confirm with your cheering section where they should be (giving them maps of the course hellps)

MJ said...

The night before I lay out my clothes/gadgets/shoes/clean socks/hairband etc. EVERYTHING. Then I double check my alarm and make Hubster set his too. Morning of I get up 2hrs before the race, eat a snack, go to the bathroom, double check all my gear, then head out the door and blare loud rockin' music the whole way to the race!

I love the look of running skirts and have ALWAYS wanted one! The pink plaid is so cute :)

MJ said...

I'd love to have the pink medium stuffits. I need something to freshen up my sneaks!! :)

Angie Bishop said...

Faithful follower here too!! Can't wait to read that race report!!

Angie Bishop said...

Relax and have a great time! Make sure you take in fuel before you already have an empty tank.

Angie Bishop said...

I lay out all my gear and go over my list like a million times! No real routine but I go over that list a few too many times!

Angie Bishop said...

I posted a link to my blog about this giveaway!

Angie Bishop said...

I tweeted about this giveaway!

Angie Bishop said...

I posted this to facebook! I really would love a new skirt!

Angie Bishop said...

SO I have a list of runningskirts I want!
I love any of the blue ones! I love the cheetah and pool skirt. I also really like the white skirt too.
I am a barefoot runner so the stuffits are not for me but a skirt.....I think I am addicted to skirts!

I like the pink stuffitts!!

C~~O~~U~~R~~T~~N~~E~~Y said...

Awesome giveaway! I would love to have a black athletic skirt.

C~~O~~U~~R~~T~~N~~E~~Y said...

Pre-race routine?
I always eat a Kashi or Newman's Own frozen pizza. I put together a playlist and load my iPod, then I set out all my stuff.
I always forget 1 thing =)

C~~O~~U~~R~~T~~N~~E~~Y said...

Cynthia O'H said...

I follow you.

Cynthia O'H said...

Hydrate early - don't leave it to the day before, thinking that it will be enough to get you through.

Cynthia O'H said...

I love Running Skirts and own quite a few. Their jogbras and tops are equally comfy!

After today's downpour at a race, I thought I was going to lose my skirt at 4KM. Not sure what I would have down if I did.

Cynthia O'H said...

My shoes don't smell but my husband's definitely do. This would be a win that would have to go straight to the big guy!

Cynthia O'H said...

Linking you in!

I love running skirts, I do not have one yet. This is the first I have ever heard of stuffits, I love the idea ! I love them both but if I had to choose one ..I would pick the running skirt :)

My favorite skirt is the one pictured here - but I can't find it on the website, what's it called? It's cute!

Amy said...

I follow - always have always will. :D I call myself an OOOOLLLD friend!

Amy said...

I'm not a marathoner, so this probably doesn't mean much coming from me.....but I think that you should just plain enjoy it! Distances are your thing, and this is the perfect distance for you, so ENJOY IT!

Amy said...

You're on my blog.

Amy said...

Every time I'm going to run a race I spend time the night before jogging and stretching, then I lay out all of my clothes, socks, shoes, shades (courtesy of you...) and make sure my ipod is charged. I'm also a bit paranoid about not making it on time, so I wake up early, shower and get ready then leave with PLENTY of time to do everything. Maybe I'll relax about that the more I race....

I love their athletic skirts with the shorts underneath

shellyrm aka jogging stroller mama said...

I am officially following now. Sorry I didn't realize I wasn't before. I use the links from comments to get to blogs I read but I know it's nicer to know who is reading esp. when I don't have time to comment all the time!

shellyrm aka jogging stroller mama said...

I have been stalking Running Skirts to find one in my size on sale. (since money is tight until hubbs finds a new job) So I really want to win an Athletic skirt...any of them would be great!

shellyrm aka jogging stroller mama said...

Marathon tip.

My first 3 marathons were some of my big times by both definations. I enjoyed them the most and crossed the finish line with great times. I believe I achieved that by doing two simple things. Getting in my training and having fun! You can not control everything because a 100 things can happen race day so believe that you will get out of your marathon what you put into it and have FUN!

shellyrm aka jogging stroller mama said...

I am linking you in my post! Give me a little bit and come read...I give great linking love!

shellyrm aka jogging stroller mama said...

I am a creature of habit but I don't have a pre-race ritual. I usually just try and get great sleep two nights before the race (the night before will be jitter-filled anyway!), I eat well the week leading up to race day and eat light (carb heavy 2 days before) the day before the race. Biggest advice...get your body used to going to the bathroom early in the morning! Once that is out of the way, you can relax and just put one foot in front of the other!...and smile for all the race photogs.

I am a follower! Of the older variety!

TMB @ RACING WITH BABES said...

I LOVE Running Skirts. But you knew that. If I won, I think I would get the fuschia one! And I am all for anything that helps my shoes last longer ... and pink stuffitts would do that

TMB @ RACING WITH BABES said...

My best marathon tip: go out conservatively. 26.2 is a long way. Respect the distance. And wear something to make you stand out. People will cheer for you if you do! That's how my sock obsession started!

TMB @ RACING WITH BABES said...

You are linked on my sidebar!

TMB @ RACING WITH BABES said...

Pre-race: I lay everything out the night before. Then I get up at least 2 hrs before the start time and have a bowl of cereal (my pre-race favorite) and try to relax. I try to treat every race like a long run ... no extra hype. And always remember to enjoy it!

Alanna said...

I like the athletic skirt since it has the compression shorts and I love the run love fleurs pattern. I'd never heard of Stuffitts, but they seem like a great idea. I'd get the pink ones so my husband wouldn't steal them.

Alanna said...

I'm an old follower.

Alanna said...

I haven't done a marathon (yet), but I'd have to say that you should just enjoy the experience. You'll no doubt have a time goal, but remember that it's your first so roll with what the day brings (so that we can read an awesome race report!).

Alanna said...

My routine consists of the usuals - set out stuff so it's ready to go, hydrate, eat, get good sleep, hydrate, eat, go to the bathroom, leave for race, go to the bathroom again (even if I don't think I have to since once I start I usually do...), RUN!!!

Lauren said...

Lauren said...

i LOVE the skirts all of them, but my favorite right now is the pink polka dot.

Lauren said...

I've only run a half, never a full, but just have fun, and whatever happens ,happens.

Lauren said...

Decide what I am wearing, eat a bagel, pee, pee, pee, drink water, and pee again:)

I love all the skirts. I'd love to get matching orange ones for me and my daughter. Also love the black polka dot. My shoes would love some TLC~Stuffitts

Stacie said...

Marathon Tip~Enjoy every second. Make sure and hydrate well and eat at least 2 hours before the start.

Stacie said...

Night before ritual~Lay out my running gear, attach chip, attach bib, don't eat anything new, drink plenty, and try as hard as possible to get as much sleep as you can. I have issues with the last one but I'm working on it.

runningwithsass.com said...

here is my tip: dont eat anything new the day before the race!

runningwithsass.com said...

pre race routine:
-get a LOT of sleep
-eat in plenty enough time before the race
-arrive early so I am not anxious about being late
-potty!
-streth and warm up!

Crystal said...

I love runningskirts.com! The running skirt style is my favorite. I would like a white one!

Crystal said...

Make sure you stay well hydrated and fueled. Take a salt packet at the halfway mark.

Crystal said...

pre-race ritual, I lay out all my stuff - clothes, shoes, fuel, etc the night before. I pin my bib on and put the d-tag or chip on my shoe.

Morning of, eat pb on bagel and banana, drink water, and make sure you poop (TMI? no, it's necessary!).

Laurie said...

I'm a new follower! Great blog. :) Great giveaway!! Hooray for you!

longlegsontheloose.com said...

why do I love running skirts? Because they are the only thing that doesn't ride up on me and I always gets tons of compliments when I run in them! And Cindy and Christy are so great! Not only did I meet them at the expo but they were at mile 20 of the marathon cheering all the skirts on!

not a new friend/follower...but a friend all the more!

longlegsontheloose.com said...

having just run my first marathon yesterday...my best advice came from Bethany...when it gets tough just remember time will pass whether you are running or not. The hours will go by...at the end of them how do you want to be able to say you spent them =) the pain and fatigue will pas, the joy will not! Oh, and its okay to let yourself cry =)

Laurie said...

I love Running Skirts!! I like the athletic style with the compression shorts underneath. If I won, I think I would get the black dot one.

Laurie said...

Stuffitts look pretty cool. I had never heard of them. If I won I'd probably be tempted to get them for my daughter (in pink of course!), I don't know how a 6 year old can have such smelly feet!!

Laurie said...

As for marathon advice, I don't have anything technical as I've yet to run one. I would imagine that it's pretty mentally tough as well as physically though so if you hit that mental wall just remember that you've done the training and you can do it!

Laurie said...

Night before a race, I get everything ready and laid out. For good luck, though, I like to sleep in the race shirt.

longlegsontheloose.com said...

will post back tomorrow!

longlegsontheloose.com said...

oh one other tip...somewhere on your race shirt put your name and "my first marathon" helped me so much when people would run with me and say "Katye, congrats on your first marathon you're doing great!"

Laurie said...

I've linked you to my sidebar and added you to my blogroll just for fun. I look forward to following you more officially! :)

EricaH said...

i have wanted a running skirt since i started running i would love to own one of their capri skirts or their TNT Plaid skirt

EricaH said...

EricaH said...

wear a wrist band would be my tip, I wore one for my first 1/2 marathon and would wet it at the water stations to wipe my face when I got to hot.

I love RunningSkirts.com and Stuffits. I love the easily accessible (and large) pockets on the skirts. Plus, they're so comfortable! I've also found my Stuffits to be really useful. I love that they insides are replaceable! I switch them back and forth between all of my shoes.

Steel Springs said...

Michelle said...

Would really love to have one of their running skirts - I like the Black Dot and the Run Love Fleurs!

Steel Springs said...

I haven't run a marathon yet, so I think that they best advice that I can give is to believe in yourself. You're strong and you can make it through those last miles. Enjoy yourself, too! Good luck!

Steel Springs said...

The night before my races I lay out my clothes, inhaler, shoes, race number, etc. It helps me sleep better knowing that everything's ready. I usually also set two alarms.

jen said...

awesome giveaway. I totally want the capri skirt! So cool.

Mrs. D said...

I want a running skirt SOOOOOOO bad!! They are so cute!! I would LOVE to have one (or more) to race in for my races from now to my first half marathon in April.

I would want either the skirt with the shorts or the capri skirt.

Listen to your body. Where a water belt.

S Club Mama said...

I'd love a running skirt - no need to have to pull down my pants to pee (is that weird? whatev. LOL)

S Club Mama said...

S Club Mama said...

my tip for your marathon (having yet to do one of my own) is have fun. Why do it if you're not going to enjoy it (at least a little). :D

S Club Mama said...

I plan to set everything out I'll need the next day (clothes, food, shoes, etc). And pray. Pray. Pray that God will see me through the end.

Suzy said...

I found you via Shelly (It's Just One Foot in Front of the Other). I love the running skirts and think the Black Dot would be awesome! I'm all about comfort when I run and skirts are oh-so comfortable. I've never heard of Stuffitts so I learned a lot. The 'shoes don't smell' part! Unfortunately, I was having a hard time navigating their site.

Java Joggers said...

I'm following!

Suzy said...

I'm a new follower of your blog.

Suzy said...

I've never run a marathon so I have no advice on that front. The one piece of advice I can share that pertains to races and running alike is to enjoy it and live in the moment! You only get your first marathon one time. GL - I can't wait to read all about it.

Suzy said...

Pre-race the night before is making sure everything I need is out and ready for me. Drink water. Hit the pillow early!

Java Joggers said...

Hmmm... marathon preparation... be confident in your training, and believe in yourself. (And pray for good running temps/lack of humidity :)

Suzy said...

I put your giveaway up on my blog!

Java Joggers said...

Running skirts - I'd love any of them, but do especially like the florals.

Java Joggers said...

And I'd also love to win a pair of stuffits... anything to help my running shoes stink less!

funderson said...

I'm a new friend follower!

funderson said...

my marathon tip is loads of vaseline on your toes...even if you don't normally get blisters...lube those puppies up!

funderson said...

pre-race routine includes eating low-fat carbs w/ protein and not getting any sleep, but its OK...sleeping comes later

Heather said...

I have been working out in a skirt for years. I think I first found one after my second was born and he will be nine soon. I will never go back to shorts. The Plaid skirts are awesome! I have never heard of stuffitts, they look like a great product!

Marathon Tip;

With the passing of John Wooden I have been reading a lot of his quotes and think this one is right for you.

"Success comes from knowing that you did your best to become the best that you are capable of becoming."

Heather said...

I am strictly a "run for fun" girl. I have never run in a race. Maybe in PE as a child but not since.

Darlene said...

I've been a follower for awhile - love your blog

Darlene said...

I don't have a runnin gskirt but would love one- like the plain back one.

Darlene said...

I've never run a marathon so the only advice I can give is to have fun, be proud that you even attempted it which is already a victory.

Darlene said...

Pre-race (this is for 5ks)
the night before - pasta, no alcohol, go to bed early
the morning before - hot cereal, coffee 2hr before, water

Darlene said...

i love running skirts because they fit soooo much better than any other skirt that i have tried, and they are super cute. i want a pink plaid one!!!!

Founder of Jog for Joubert Syndrome said...

ive been thinking about getting some stuffits because my trail shoes get really wet on some runs and take days to dry....and end up kinda stinky ewwww

Founder of Jog for Joubert Syndrome said...

i have yet to run a marathon, so i dont have much advice on that one other than leave it all out on the pavement, you trained hard for this, no matter what the outcome you will be a MARATHONER.

Founder of Jog for Joubert Syndrome said...

my prerace routine consists of a great meal the night before, pinning my number to my shirt, laying out all my clothes and gear, checking and double checking to make sure i packed everything. wake up around 5am, small cup of coffee, make sure i poo before i leave the house. once on sit, body glide up, lace up my shoes and hope for the best.

The running skirts look awesome. I've been on the website quite a bit looking at them, but don't have the money for one right now. But they are so cute. I had never heard of stuffits, but those look handy as well.

Kayla said...

Even though I've never run a marathon my advice would be to make sure you stay hydrated and enjoy the experience.

Andrea Tilley said...

1. I visited both sites and I think both the products are great. I have never worn a running skirt but I would love to try one. My workout gear needs a makeover :)I loved the black because I could wear it with so many things but I also really liked the polka dot black and pink ones, I liked the cheeta prints too. 2. I do follow your blog. 3. Marathon advice. Be confident at the start. You have trained and prepared really hard for this. Enjoy the run. Think positively when your mind starts to wear on you. Night before, find your happy place and picture it so that when your mind starts to go, you can go back to your happy place. It will help. I promise. Good Luck and Have Fun. You're going to do great and you will be so proud when your finished.

Courtney said...

I would love to get the stuffits especially if they help shoes be less stinky

Mel -Tall Mom on the Run said...

My advice RELAX!! My body was so tense leading up to my first Marathon that I burned energy just being nervous. TRust your training! Bank some sleep leading up to the race.. Oh and US THE POTTY!! As many times as you need to. DO NOT overhydrate.

Mel -Tall Mom on the Run said...

I own a pair of pink Stuffits and LOVE them!!

I really want the pink polka dots Running skirt

Hi! I'm a new follower of your blog.

Kate said...

I love running skirts and currently own a cheetah/purple one that I wore for a women's half marathon in my town over the weekend. I'm dying to get one of the plaid (either red or purple) or a camo one.

Kate said...

My best running advice for your marathon is just to relax and have fun. The hardest part is doing the training, so on marathon day, you just need to have confidence you can do it. And even if you don't feel 100% for 100% of the race, don't get discouraged because that many miles is a journey, and it's has it's ups and downs. Also, stay hydrated and take Gus, gels, or whatever you need for keeping your blood sugar up, so you can feel strong at the finish.

MCM Mama said...

I'd love one of the athletic style skirts in any pattern.

Pink stuffits would work for me. ;0)

Zoë said...

I'm such a HUGE RunningSkirts.com fan and I now have 4 skirts...but I could definitely use them in all colors. I totally want the pink polka dot one!

For some reason, the Stuffitts page wasn't working for me. :(

Zoë said...

Hiya! I'm a new follower!

Zoë said...

A marathon tip? Hmmm...bring loose fitting shoes/sandals for after the run. And make sure to use Body Glide if you need it!

Zoë said...

Momma Twitch, for some reason I thought I was already a follower...sorry about that.

Pre-race routine: Night before is pasta for dinner and lots of water. Bed early.

alice said...

I like the black and pool running skirt

alice said...

I've never ran a marathon, but would love to one day. My only tip is to have Fun :)

alice said...

My pre-race routine. I like to have a hearty meal + lots of water, set out all my essentials - glide, gu's, outfit, race kit, bib, camera, charge my garmin, check the weather, set a few alarm clocks and go over the race route.

I love pretty much everything on the Runningskirts website. The camo is my favorite print. I've never hear dof stuffitts before, so that was interesting. I wonder if they'd work in my Vibrams...

Lynette said...

Enjoy your first marathon. It's your first, so it's already a PR =)

My pre- race routine starts a couple days before. I focus on getting plenty of water and eating lots of complex carbs. I also try to make sure that the nights leading up to the race I'm getting plenty of sleep. I have a tendency to not sleep well the night before. The night before I'll usually have some pasta and more water. Then I lay out everything I think I might need and set the alarm nice and early. I like to get to the start 30-45 min early to hit the bathroom and mingle.

Katie said...

I would get the black dot athletic skirt . . . love those compression shorts underneath!

And teh pink stuffits!

Marathon tip . . . that is tough since I have not run one yet, but from all I have read and the friends that I know who have run one . . . tak your own water bottle or fuel belt . . . it just makes it all easier

Katie said...

Pre-race routine: The night before I lay out all my clothes and check the weather forecast for the next day. I also get out an gels, water bottles, etc I may need and I tie my timing chip to my shoe. Then I take a shower right before bed and set my alarm clock. The next AM I have some water, iced coffee and PB and honey crackers! At the race I get my ipod set and I use the parta potties at least twice . . . I really do not like to stop during the race!

From Running Skirts I would love the PUrple Plaid skirt

I think the Stuffits would be awesome to have along with me on the Ragnar Wasatch Back next week. If we get rain and my shoes get wet on one leg, MAYBE they will get a little drier before the next leg so I don't end up with blisters :)

I have never done a full, but in my half marathon last week (my first ever) I learned that I had to walk through the aid stations so I could drink the gatorade towards the end because I knew I was getting dehydrated and REALLY needed those electrolytes. SO allow your self to walk to get your drink if you need it. I also carried my own water so I could easily drink when I needed it (I used a hand held water bottle)
