What’s Your STYLE?

2 Jul

A few weeks ago, my running buddy (and amazing friend) Stacy surprised me with Miles with Style shirts. Stacy had an idea for the blog, and I loved it.

Stacy wanted to spread the word of my blog, and thought these shirts would be a great way to do so. As I had mentioned in a previous post, I received 35 Miles with Style shirts (holy cow!!!), and I have been waiting to pass them out. Well…it is now time to begin distribution. And I am excited to share my plan of action for this project.

Stacy’s idea for the shirts was for people to share their “style”. Their style could be anything from motivation, to running skirts. From happiness, to the color pink. Your “style” would be whatever you wanted it to be.

Stacy then presented me with the idea of using these shirts in a Pay it Forward way. She urged me to look to people who had a style I admired, send them a shirt, and then present them with an additional shirt to pass on to another person whom they admire. I loved this idea.

I will be sending my first 4 shirts out this week, with special notes to the recipients as to why they are receiving the fun shirts. I will also have a blog post this week with why I decided to send the shirts to these lucky recipients (so stay tuned….).

So….what is MY style??

After a month of pondering what my style would be, I have finally decided.

My style is INSPIRATION.

Since I began this blog, I have had so many people reach out to me through Twitter, Facebook, text, phone calls, etc. letting me know that I have inspired them to start running, or try to run longer than they thought they could. And every time I hear this, I feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

I want to inspire others to do something they didn’t think was possible. I want to inspire others to push themselves to a limit that had never done before. And I ultimately want to inspire people to feel better about themselves all around.

My hope for this blog is to be an inspiration to others. If I can do it, and push myself to new limits – so can YOU.

I look forward to spreading the word with my shirts, and passing them along to others.

Thank you to everyone who has supported me so far, and especially to Stacy for coming up with this idea and making it possible.



P.S. Now that you know my style, what is YOUR style?!

      Such a cool project to get a great idea out! It’ll be fun to track the stories that you get back from all of these. Nice work!

    awesome idea! I love “pay it forward” type things. My style is… determination (plus teal and pink… my total fav right now). Lately i’ve been seeing so many bloggers and non-bloggers alike set awesome goals and crush them with insane determination.

    OMG those shirts are adorable, what a great idea!!

    My style is setting an example for others and letting them know if I can do it, so can they! When I first started running, a little of a year ago, I could barely run 1/2 mi (embarrassing to admit that), and now I’m running half marathons. You never know what you can do UNTIL you try!! You just have to believe in yourself.

    Good luck with everything, I love reading your blog!

    Love your blog Ali. I am so glad you love your shirts. You know how much I love making shirts. It’s been so great to share so many runs with you. I am missing the therapy since I have been out of town. I am going to ponder my style and reply. There is just so much to say. One of my favorite new styles lately is definitely the running skirt. Who knew I would ever love running in a skirt so much. But, you convinced me. Love it. Can’t wait to hear more and share more.
