Add a little fun to your game Ame and Lulu is a sophisticated lifestyle brand of accessories which embraces classic American style. Amye Kurson, the company's founder, launched her quest when she was dismayed by the lack of trendy golf and tennis products that were being marketed in many boutiques and pro shops. Her goal was to form a company that had classic, fun and appealing accessories that were both stylish and practical. Amye designed her first prototype for golf headcovers in 2003 and shortly thereafter launched Ame & Lulu. The stylish fabric and bold colors have become a signature of the brand.

“Throughout my training and the marathon itself, I found this cream to be the most amazing product I have used.� -- Thelma Reduces the chafing, blisters and saddle sores that occur with endurance sports. Protects your skin by forming a thin, silky low-friction layer between skin and clothes as well as an effective moisture barrier to protect against sweat and water. Long lasting so reduces the need for inconvenient re-application. Most effective when used prior to activity, but also soothing to skin when used after endurance activites. Has natural Australian Tea Tree oil which has anti-septic and anti-fungal action to reduce the possibility of infection.

Don’t just park it when at the park Ever since you had your little monkey, things haven’t been the same. And by things we mean your butt, boobs, and thighs. Get back into the swing of it with The Healthy Goddesses Swing Set Circuit workout cards. The illustrated cards guide busy moms in the quest for physical fitness, when gym runs are few and far between. Each card maps out a simple exercise that can be done while tending to your wee one. Lunge while pushing a swing or wall-sit while he digs in the sandbox. Though not revolutionary, they are simple reminders to make the most of your time at the park. Instead of just parking that ass.

Celebrate and support women who run! phone: 541-968-1362 email: laura@runmommarun.com twitter: @runmommarunnews facebook: /runmommarun website: runmommarun.com

Put these on your holiday list! I think using the word "busy" in front of the word "mom" is sort of redundant, don't you? We're usually pretty maxed out. That's why I think it's so important to stop and celebrate our accomplishments. It keeps us fueled and confident. Squeezing in workouts is tough for running moms, but you so deserve the pat on the back for providing an example of health and fitness to your family. You're amazing, ladies! Show it with our great running gifts for women! ~ Laura

“Are my kids still chasing me?” The essays in Run Like A Mother–a book unlike clinical, workout-heavy running books out there–replicate the lively conversations good friends have when they’re out on a run: a mix of personal stories, hard-won, helpful advice, and crack-you-up anecdotes that cement a connection that goes well beyond the miles logged that day.

Fitness-inspired email: jac@thesilvermaple.com facebook: /thesilvermaple website: thesilvermaple.com

Love these! The Silver Maple works hard to create uniquely special pieces that channel happy thoughts. Whether it’s your child’s name, a memorable date, a special place, or an inspiring phrase, the idea is to find happiness and serenity each and every time you look at your personalized creation. They use sterling silver and copper in their creations. Many of their pieces are hand-cut and filed from a sheet of metal, allowing them to create unique, one-of-a-kind designs. By hand, they stamp, distress, brush, and polish each piece to provide a vintage-inspired look. The meaning is special and the look is subtle but beautiful.

“If you are a runner, you will read We are Girls Who Love to Run more than once.” -- Carol Woodrow We Are Girls Who Love to Run uses running to inspire girls to build healthy habits and achieve goals. Vibrant watercolor illustrations celebrate real girls with different body styles who find satisfaction in daily life experiences. The characters display their inner strengths as they make simple healthy choices and interact with family and friends. A sports book specifically designed for girls, We Are Girls Who Love to Run speaks to girls of all fitness levels, from the curious observer-turned-participant to the driven competitor. It celebrates the multiple elements of girlhood that connect to form the whole girl: family life, friendships, emotions, fitness, goal-setting, relaxation, and curiosity. It acknowledges girls’ spirits and applauds their fortitude in believing in themselves. We Are Girls Who Love to Run won a 2008 Moonbeam Children’s Book Award Bronze Medal in the Body/Mind/ Spirit category. Brianna and her mom/business partner, Sheila Schencke, created their company, Balanced Steps, LLC to publish the book. Photo by Jennifer Tai Photo Artistry
