The Cabbage Rose

I teased you last week with this and now I'll present you with the post in its entirety.

This shirt is one of my new favorite shirts. I've only run in it once but already I can tell it can stand up to any other shirt I own.

This is just one of several shirts for sale at The Cabbage Rose, an Etsy store you can visit here. The shirt above is also found here. Now, if you visit the store and use the coupon code "RunnerLuis" you will get 10 percent off your purchase. Not bad.

Now, you might be wondering why I'm blogging about this. I don't normally provide advertising per se but this store is my friend Willoughby's store. I've known her for a while now, we've been blog buddies for, what?, three or four years by now. She lives in Michigan and I live in Cali but I know one day we'll grab lunch and meet face-to-face.

Anyway, Willoughby's shirts are quality. I know because she sent me this one too.

Zoe (run zoe run), Kerrie (Mom vs Marathon) and myself

That's easily one of my favorite t-shirts, and now the "Peace" shirt is atop my running list. So if you're in the market for a new running shirt (and aren't we all?), visit The Cabbage Rose and see what Willoughby has to offer. There are shirts for men and women.

I mean, you could go to Sport Chalet or Big 5 or whatever but I'd much prefer to support a small business than to go to some big chain store and drop my money there. If you're worried about quality, don't. I ran six miles in my new awesome shirt and I was smiling from the start because of how good the shirt fit me. I felt strong and fast... actually, the run was my first run after my 20-miler. I ran six miles in under an hour just two days after running 20 miles. Yeah, my legs had something to do with it but I'm convinced the shirt put me over the top.

Anyway, go check out her collection. There are running shirts and regular t-shirts there as well. It's growing and hopefully with the support of the online running community it will continue growing. And remember, use the code "RunnerLuis" and you will get 10 percent off your entire purchase.

* I wrote this of my own free will. If the shirt would have sucked, I'd have told you so... or maybe I just wouldn't have written this post... but the shirt really is awesome
