Holiday Gift Idea: Treat Her Feet

Maybe I’m thinking a bit too much about something I’d like to receive for a present – but why not create your own gift-of-the-month foot pampering package?

Holiday Gift Idea: Runner Ornaments

I spent last weekend in Colorado, where we were hit with 6-8 inches of fresh fluffy snow.

Sporty Jewels

When Denise Relke was sidelined from running due to a broken ankle, she created a running pendant in her silversmithing class.

Active Maternity Gear

In most women’s pregnancies, there comes a point when we have to face the facts: We can no longer wear our pre-pregnancy workout clothes.
