Moving Comfort Sprint Tech Skort Giveaway

by Meghann on January 14, 2013

Hey guys!

You knew I couldn’t fly all the way to a tropical island and not enjoy at least one run on the beach.

20130110_074047.jpg

I’ve been able to sneak in a few early runs before the resort really wakes up and there is nothing better than having the beach all to yourself in the early morning sunshine. There’s something so peaceful and calming about running on the beach when it’s just you, the sand, and the waves.

20130110_074631.jpg

The runs have also given me a chance to test out the new Moving Comfort Sprint Tech Skort, the company sent me to test out from their new spring collection.

IMG_7390.jpg

The running skort is just plain fun. I love the purple skirt layered on top and the unexpected pattern of the compression boy shorts hidden underneath. The skort is extremely comfortable with a very forgiving wide waistband on top and the grippy bottom that prevents the boy shorts from riding up. There’s also a hidden pocket in the back of the waistband for an ipod, gu, or hotel keycard, and an infinity drawcord that cinches at sides for a ruched look.

Don’t worry – I share. πŸ˜‰

I have one Moving Comfort Sprint Tech Skort (a $54 value) to give away to one lucky Meals and Miles reader.

To enter all you need to do is leave a comment below with your favorite vacation run. Were you on a beach? Somewhere in Europe? On a really snazzy treadmill in the middle of the ocean on a cruise ship? Do tell!

You have until Tuesday evening at 11:59pm to enter. The giveaway is open to U.S. residents only.

Good luck!

So far is has been a run on a treadmill on a cruise ship. Seeing nothing but beautiful water in front of you makes running on a treadmill pretty awesome πŸ™‚

My favorite vacation run was this past summer, I had not been on a vacation for a few years so I was so excited to get a run on the beach. It was the first morning there and I ran 3 miles on the beach at 6:30 in the morning. I loved it because it was great to just be me, the sand and the waves. There actually was quite a bit of other runners and it put a smile on my face to see that there are other dedicated runners out there early in the morning.

In the last few years I’ve coordinated my vacation time around races so my favorite vacation run was a race this past year. I ran Bolder Boulder, which 150% lives up to its reputation as the best 10k. There were parties all along the course where spectators offered cotton candy, beer and other goodies, while one house even had a slip and slide. It also is pretty fun to say I ran a 10k a mile above sea level πŸ™‚

My best run on a vacation was while visitng my sister in MA. She lived a couple blocks from the beach so I ran down there and along the shore for 3 miles and back. There was a really nice walking path that paralleled the beach which made for a perfect running surface (running in sand is not my favorite thing!)

My favorite vacation run is still one I took with my father about 20 years ago. I was in high school and frustrated spending my weekends at my brothers endless soccer tournaments. We were staying at a hotel that wasn’t in too busy of an area so my dad said lets go for a run.
We ran through this neighborhood that all of the sudden became questionable. There were lots of dogs barking at us and we started running faster. There was this one dog running along his fence barking and then all of the sudden the fence disappeared and he was still running along side me barking. So we ran faster! The dog eventually stopped wherever he thought his yard ended.
We made it back to the hotel pretty high on adrenaline and laughing. So, it wasn’t a pretty or relaxing vacation run, but it is one we will always remember. And because I do remember that crazy run, I remember that my dad did try to take time out for me even when my teenaged self didn’t realize it.

The best run I have ever done in my life was last March. I had (finally) almost completed the Couch to 5K plan, and was tackling a 25 minute run. This run happened to fall smack dab in the middle of a vacation to Israel – the first time seeing my boyfriend in 3 months (he was away 5 months total). He actually scouted for locations before I left, and my first day there, he was so excited to tell me what he found: Haas Promenade. Now, that name means nothing to most people so I will let a picture speak for itself: http://www.math.toronto.edu/drorbn/Gallery/Jerusalem/ViewFromPromenade_2048.jpg . The view was the old city of Jerusalem. It was a difficult run (very hilly), and different levels which necessisitated going up and down small flights of stairs, but I did it…and more. I actually completed my first 30 minute run that day!

1.) Punta Cana Dominican Republic. I woke up early and ran on the trail next to the beach at our resort as the sun came up. The weather was perfect, no one was around and the sun rise was the most beautiful thing I have ever seen.

2.) Hyde Park in London England. It was obviously cooler, and a bit misty but again no one was around except a few other runners, and some dog walkers. I ran through Hyde Park and right by Kensington Palace in the early morning. With all the beautiful architecture it was one of my favorite runs.

My favorite vacation run was supposed to be on the upper deck of my cruise ship (my first cruise ever) but it turns out it’s pretty windy out there, so I had to take my skirt-clad bottom back to my room after only a few laps. (The view was spectacular, though).

So instead I’ll just go with an early morning Virginia Beach boardwalk run in April – there were only a few people on the beach, it was finally warm, and I ran the entire boardwalk. It was my first time ever in Virginia Beach, so of course I had to stop and take a picture at the Neptune statue. I live in a beach town and in the summertime I am so busy I rarely drive to the boardwalk to run, but this particular run was just awesome, and I loved feeling like a tourist at the beach for once!

The Honolulu airport shut down air traffic for 20 mins and let them practice formations, it was totally impromptu and AMAZING. I will never forget that run!

I guess my fav vacation run was on a cruise, I did a few workouts on the treadmills but the gym was so hot I ventured outside one day. I ran on the teeny tiny outside track, something like 20+ laps a mile, while we were at sea. Turning into the wind made me almost lose my hat on every lap, but running the same direction we were travelling made for some awesome looking times on my Garmin.

I stopped and took pictures (though they didn’t come out great). I’ve done a lot of races in different states, but this is still my favorite to date!

My favorite vacation run was in Paris. I went to Paris on a whim (I purchased my ticket on a Tuesday and left that Saturday.) Our hotel was 5 minutes from TrocadΓ©ro, which has the most amazing views of the Eiffel Tower. This run was so amazing for a few reasons:
1) In 2006, I lived in Paris for 6 months and this run brought back all of the amazing memories from my Parisian life style. I ran under the Eiffel Tower on a beautiful sunny day!
2) It was my very first run after being cleared from a pelvic stress fracture. I fractured my pelvis training for my first marathon. While I had to put my goal of completing a marathon on hold, this run re-inspired me to continue chasing my goals.
3) This run reminded me how wonderful life is, and how important it is to seize so many opportunities around us. I came back from my vacation with a renewed sense of possibility and optimism. Never limit where running can take you!

My fave vacation run was in Boulder, Colo. I ran twice there and while it was difficult adjusting to the altitude, I couldn’t get over the scenery. Seeing mountains was such an amazing thing – especially when all I see is my neighborhood or basement wall.

My favorite vacation run took place at HLS11 in Philly.

it was the first time I ran with blogger friends in the midst of my SERIOUSLY training for a race. It felt awesome to be able to run near friends, see new sites in a city I’d never visited before, and feel myself REALLY push it during the run, especially the last half of a mile when we totally picked up the pace, sprinting the last bit to the hotel. The experience totally changed the way I viewed myself as a runner, honestly.

My favorite vacation run what then my fiance and I went on a cruise two years ago. It was during Hurrican Earl and the ship was rocking side to side pretty good. With the treadmill facing the side of the ship it was like running rolling hills without actually doing anything. It was an adventure, so now I can say I ran in the ocean during a hurricane.

Favorite vacation run was something that was so the opposite of living in Florida — it was through the mountains of my homestate of Pennsylvania. I wasn’t much of a runner growing up so to return back to the roads I knew so well but to run them instead of biking or driving them was really special. It gave me some much needed time to enjoy some stillness and solitude around my favorite place on Earth — my late grandparents’ dairy farm!

My favorite vacation run was on a beach in Maine. Cool, salty breeze and almost no one else running. It was one of my first solo runs outside, and I went twice as far as I’d planned to go. I took my shoes off and walked back in the waves. Such a good memory! πŸ™‚

My dad and I live in different cities, but we run together whenever we can. My favorite vacation run was with my dad, in Washington, DC, on a Thanksgiving morning. We ran around as many monuments and memorials as we could, and took a break at the Washington Monument. It was a clear, windy morning, and we could hear the flags flap in the wind while we rested. It was breathtaking.

oh man, I have so many fond memories! I always run when I travel so lots to choose from… an awesome one was in New Zealand when I ran on Stewart Island. The ocean was choppy that day, bringing spp like albatross close to shore. This is a spp that you’d almost never see from land – this is a very special area for that reason! The trail was hilly and narrow, on a cliff of sorts and I was all alone. Just gorgeous!!!

I studied abroad in Amsterdam my last semester of college. I was facing graduation and trying to figure out what I was going to do so I would often go for a run to think and clear my head. I lived in the city center so when I would go out on a long run I would end up in the country out in the middle of nowhere. Windmills, tulips, and canals. It was amazing. Besides, I felt like an Olympian being able to run to the next town (because they are so close together!).

But I would totally rock that skirt on my next run. I have a beach run comming up soon http://www.trinidadtoclambeach.com/ it’s an annual run that starts in scenic Trinidad, and crosses over Little River and ends with 3+ miles of just beach, it’s one of my favorite runs of all time.

One of my most memorable runs was on a cruise ship in the Pacific between Mexico and California. The water was really choppy, but I was determined to get my run in, so I hopped on the treadmill. Thanks to the bobbing of the ship, I actually felt like I was running hills, and I occasionally had to grab the handrails to steady myself. While I wouldn’t want every run to be as rolling, it was an interesting way to break up the monotony of a treadmill run! (Thank goodness I don’t get seasick!)

My favorite vacation run was this past November in Boston.

I got in about six miles, and probably could have gone on forever if I didn’t have to get back to present. It was absolutely wonderful. A close runner up was two days of running in Tampa, also while I was there for a conference. I made a new friend and him and I really enjoyed running along the water after long days of conferencing.

I don’t know if going to visit my parents counts as a vacation but I just love getting the chance to run with my dad when we visit. He’s been a runner since he was in his 20’s and I have only seriously worked out for the last few years (I ran off and on between years of smoking) so it’s always a treat – we’ve even done a couple of Thanksgiving day races the last 2 years. We didn’t get along fabulously when I was a teenager so running together allows us to bond in a way we didn’t get to before.

Jealous of you, as I’m benched right now with a fracture…I’m reading MnM to “run vicariously” through you, for now! My favorite run was during my autumn vacation in coastal Alaska. I’d finish a late supper, lace up my sneakers and set off to enjoy the most piquant, sweet little ride amongst quaking Aspens and black spruce along the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail, right on the Gulf of Alaska. Across the water, the entire evening skyline of Anchorage would reverberate in a rainbow of colors, awash across the water.Occasionally, a Moose would meander across the trail (one night, with her calf!). There were a few nights where I was forunate enough to glimpse the reverberating silvery-green swirls of the Aurora Borealis, dancing in muted flames across the sky. I will NEVER forget it! It was the most exhilarating week of my life, and the most enchanting running destination I’ve ever experienced. Amazing.

Ran with my sister at the beach in ocean city New Jersey. Went there for weekend to see my son at the drumline competition. Never saw the competition, but had a great weekend with my 2 sisters and my mother.

All of my vacay runs have been for races so I would like to say Seattle has been my fave so far.

My favorite run was probably the semester I spent in London. My friend and I would run through Kensington Park. Second favorite was running along the river in Philadelphia – I live in UT so coming down 4000 feet in elevation made for a fun and fast run by all the boat houses!

I went to Aruba with a dear friend this past June and ran on a treadmill looking out the windows on the water – delightful!

My favorite vacation run was on a 1 night girls getaway with friends! We all love to workout, but I forgot shorts, and one friend forgot any workout stuff whatsoever, including tennis shoes! But we all woke up at 6am to go on a run, me in my pj pants and 5 months pregnant, and my other friend in her pajamas and flip flops!!!! We laughed the whole time as our other friends made fun of us, but it was super fun and a great memory! πŸ™‚

At school, I would travel at least once a year for pep band. Getting lots of free time meant we could all finally work out without having to worry about classes and homework, so I’d enjoy the treadmill while people watching, especially in Louisville, KY where the gym was on the first floor πŸ™‚

I went on a great beach run two summers ago! It maybe wasn’t the best workout since it ended when we started freaking out about a giant dead jellyfish, but like I said, fun!

My favorite vacation run was along W Cliff Drive in Santa Cruz, CA. The beautiful shore with breaking waves on one side, multi-million dollar houses on the other!

In Italy we stayed at a villa in Tuscany surrounded by farms. Running there was spectacular!

Hilton Head run – I found a flat trail that lead right to the beach and knew that afterward was a bike ride to great PANCAKES with my family and loved ones πŸ™‚

I love running in NYC while on vacation as I’m from west Texas and it’s so different.

My favorite vacation run would have to be when I was in Philly and I ran my first-ever 6 miler in the new-to-me city!

I’m a first time mom still trying to figure out how to balance time enough to get out and run. ANY time or place that can happen is always like a mini vacation! πŸ™‚

My favorite vacation run would have to be a toss-up between running on the beach in Barcelona and running in New York City. Although I had a pretty spectacular run in Florence once too…tough call! Running is such an amazing way to explore new cities.

Love running at the beach…We don’t travel far from home with our little ones. But heading out on RT 12 in the Outer Banks, NC has help me shed some pounds as I sweat it out along the coastal highway. Love the sounds of the waves as I run.
