Fashion Friday: Flower Power and a Giveaway!

We are Fellow Flowers, and we want you to be too! If you didn't catch our post yesterday about who and what Fellow Flowers are, you may be thinking history really does repeat itself and that we're back in the '60s. That is not the case with this Fashion Friday, because we as Fellow Flowers have chosen to join this motivational movement in our own individual way, representing the different reasons, stories and purposes behind why we run with color and flair. 

Each of us from GRT901 picked out a shirt that has a two-fold purpose. Our shirts and flowers unite us together with each other and every other Fellow Flower in this life race as well as every official race we run. Also, our shirts specifically were self-selected to describe us personally. While we all like certain parts of each color, these are the ones we felt we most related to.


This shirt lists the words with which I would want to be described. I am not yet who I want to be, but that is just another one of the journeys I am on. If I were to read this shirt every morning, it would motivate me to live in a way that could change both me and the world.


Courage is not a word that I would normally use to describe myself. I just do what needs to be done. Period. Since I started running I have learned that I can do so much more than I ever thought possible (we all can!) and loving every bit of it!!
Believe. Achieve. Bloom. Endure.

Janell and Stacey 

Both of us agree that some days are harder than others to wear 'Authentic', 
but it's who we strive to be. 

Janell: I feel running has enabled me to find so much joy and confidence in who I am so it is the one I identify with the most. Plus, I love to laugh A LOT.

Stacey: I chose yellow because I never pass up a run on a sunny day, it brings me joy and is definitely one of my favorite ways to find my happy. I chose yellow because I am blessed I get to run!


Running makes me feel strong and powerful, it's the one thing I can control. I may or may not be a rule breaker ... But either way, I am a force to be reckoned with in the race of life or out pounding the pavement!


I picked Gratitude because I liked what it said about being united, to love, mostly because I am loved. The last part of the definition: it's so much bigger than me...LIFE. It is All so much bigger than me! And hey, I like pink!
