|Stop mocking me|
I decided to give up sweets and junk food for Lent, and let me tell you, as was the case every other time I’ve given up those things, it’s required some will power.
I’m creating an online shop. I think to generate interest, all of the proceeds for the first few months will go to the American Cancer Society. Above is a preview of what I’ve created so far (or you can just go check it out in it’s entirety). Let me know what you think!
Unfortunately this site (Spreadshirt) doesn’t have a ton of options for performance wear, so the color choices are a bit limited. The first row of shirts (Boo Cancer) are cotton. Everything else is “performance.”
The shop is open for business right now, but I plan to buy at least one shirt to check the quality before I start promoting it. But for now I’d love to hear your feedback on anything – colors, font choices, wording, prices, etc. There are also some shirts in there to promote my other blog sites – RunChicagoSouth.com and ChicagoRunningBloggers.com.
And lastly, I may have already told you this, but I love Injinji socks. For the past year or so, they are the only socks I run in (unless I’m behind on my laundry). I always get a lot of questions about them because they are toe socks (but performance toe socks), but I find them to be super comfortable, and they keep my feet toasty warm in the winter without overheating, and cool in the summer. BFF Ultra Vera turned me on to them – that’s what she runs in.
You can try them for yourself – they are offering 15% off their performance weight socks (what I run in) on their site, plus if you use the code TRY20TWEET you can get an additional 20% off the original price. Plus free shipping on orders over $50. These socks are a little bit pricey (start at $12/pair) so I always wait for a deal and stock up (I ordered six pairs last night).
