Wow - what an amazing summer it's been so far. I'd like to start this post by singing the praises of Virgin America Airlines.....This airline rocks! Great friendly service, painless check in, leather seats, mood lighting, and internet access and normal power plus under each seat! woohoo - its blog catch up time as we fly home from the seattle rock 'n' roll marathon.
San Diego Rock 'n' Roll marathon will always be one our favorites. Not only is it in our hometown, it was one of our first major marathon expos so it will always be near and dear to our runningskirts hearts!
We kicked the week off with a fun segment on the San Diego local morning show - check out the clip here (you have to search "running skirts" on this video page and click the "running skirts" link (sorry I can't figure out how to link it directly). We had a great time showcasing the new summer collection and talking about some of our "giving back" initiatives including Chelsea's Light foundation (100% of the sales of all orange running skirts go to the foundation), our "skirt camp" camo collection which benefits "Marine's Helping Marines" and our Purple plaid skirts which benefit "Sunshine Kids", the foundation Audrina Patridge was fundraising for when she ran in the 2010 LA Marathon.
We surprised one of the morning show hosts with a cheetah fitness skirt of his own!
After the live show we headed straight to Running Skirts headquarters to start the party preparations for our Skirtacular Summer Party. All the skirthusiasts were on deck to assist with turning our warehouse and back parking lot into a pinkalicious running skirts heaven!
Pink velvet ropes & carpet, carbo-cupcakes served by our male "hosts". Brooke from Ultima Replenisher was there mixing up another fabulous selection of "ultima-tinis" including a delicious cocktail using their new oh-so-yummy grape flavor.
As we approached partay time, the line outside the door and down the hot pink velvet carpet grew and grew down the street and around the corner! We hurried to get the final touches on our special event and were super excited to get to meet a lot of our local running skirt customers. Oh what a night - check out the footage from the party here
