Do you have a little super hero in your house?  Do you know of a super hero in your life?  Have you ever wanted to be a super hero yourself and fight for a cause larger than yourself?  This is your chance!!

April 28th is National Superhero Day!

One month from today, on April 26th 2014, there will be an inaugural Super Run® event in Detroit, Michigan, but there are over 20 locations all over the U.S. also participating this summer and fall.  Including Boston!!  You guys, I really want to run this.

superRunnersHere’s why: I’d get to dress up in my favorite super hero outfit and run with thousands of other really super people!  But more importantly, by running this race, I can support my local non-profit community.  See, what makes this different than many other 5Ks for charity that you might been involved with, in this Super Run, you can select the non-profit that you’d like your fundraising efforts to benefit.   Since my little brother is fighting cancer, I can choose to support a local non-profit organization that focuses on cancer research or cancer survivors.  I’d also be helping my organization gain publicity and support.TheSuperRun_logo-300x65

WHO:  The Super Run®

WHAT:  A family-friendly fun run that supports local non-profits raise funds and awareness for their organizations.  It is superhero themed event where all registered participants will receive an official superhero cape!

WHEN:  They currently have 20+ event dates schedule throughout the USA – and they’re adding more daily!

WHERE:  From Maine to California, Michigan to Florida.  Check them out on Indiegogo.com to see their video.

WHY:  To raise funds and awareness for a non-profit that is close to your heart.

If you’d like your charity to be involved, The Super Run provides the logistical support, helps with site selection, and volunteer management.  They do the heavy lifting, while your organization would need just one coordinator to be the primary contact for that local event.

I’ve mentioned before that I recently ran my first half-marathon. It was long and it was grueling, but I’m so proud to say that I’ve run 13.1 miles!

race

If you’re a runner (or a human being, really), you know the thrill of accomplishing something hard that you never thought you’d be able to do and then wanting to brag about it. Well, the folks at Endure get that, and they’ve created a whole line of jewelry and apparel to show off your accomplishments!

logo

Endure’s creator, Sunny Arada, is a former NCAA Cross Country and Track and Field Athlete. She has combined her love of jewelry and her passion for running to create a beautiful line of fun and inspiring products. I love the word “endure” and all that it means when running a race, and also just running the race of life. She sells necklaces, rings, beads, earrings and apparel for runners of every kind. Her designs all come in tarnish-resistant sterling silver, but can be ordered in 14K white or yellow gold, and  some styles even come with diamonds. All of her fashions are beautiful and make me proud to be a runner and remind me to endure through  the hard stuff!

jewelry

Besides beautiful jewelry, Endure has a great line of running apparel. I love the “Run” tee, the “I roll with Bob” onesie (hilarious, right?) and the “13.1” (in Roman numerals) long sleeve tee. And the “Endure” headband. And the Heart compression socks…Okay, I pretty much love the entire apparel collection 🙂

apparel

 But what I really love is the Live Love Run Endure Hoodie I was sent to review. Talk about an awesome hoodie! First of all, it’s a zip up hoodie, which I love because you can get it on without messing up your hair. It’s super soft on the inside and slightly stretchy, making it very fitted. If you like your hoodies loose and baggy then definitely order a size larger than you normally would, because this baby is snug–in a good way. The snugness makes it very warm; I have loved lounging around in it at night and staying nice and cozy. I haven’t taken it out on a run yet because it’s just so nice that I don’t want to get it all gross and sweaty, but I know it would keep me heated and when I got too hot I could easily un-zip it and would be just the right temperature. But enough about the fit–let’s talk about the design! Look how cute this thing is!!!

back front

It has a fun shoelace design (hand drawn by the designer) on the front which I love–subtle but such a nice touch! Then the back is the best part: “Live Love Run Endure.” What words of wisdom! I mean, seriously, this doesn’t just appeal to runners but to people everywhere as a reminder to endure through life! And the sparkly gold on the word “Run?” Get out of here. I LOVE it! It’s just as sparkly and amazing in person as it looks in the picture.

This awesome hoodie is $54, and I think it’s worth the money. The “13.1,” “26.2” and “Run” long sleeve tees are $36 and the tanks are currently on sale for only $16! This is good quality apparel and I know you or the runner in your life would LOVE a shirt or piece of jewelry to commemorate and celebrate the huge accomplishments they’ve made in their lives. And lucky for you, Endure is offering you a chance to win $36 toward any apparel purchase from the shop!
