ALL runner can appreciate a nice runners related gift, or any little accessory to adorn our shoes or running gear. We are always looking for any running related  gear to show off our pride for doing something not many people can do. So with that I bring you SCWINGS!

They are thing awesome, creative, wings to put on your running shoes!!!! Ever wondered how it would feel to run like the flash??? Add some red wings on your shoes and you will! Well, not really, but it sure will make you feel like you are flying!

I came across these awesome accessories and just HAD to share it with you all! They come in many many different colors, styles, sizes you name it they have it! The reason I came across them was because I was looking for a purple and a yellow butterfly.

For those of you who don’t know, I run with 2 guardian angels by my side each time I lace up. My aunt, who recently passed away is my yellow butterfly, my light, and my guide. She was an amazing resilient woman. She had the strength and will to live like no other. So when she passed, she became my yellow butterfly.



My purple butterfly, is Princess Bella. She is my best friend, Janine’s niece. She is a very special little girl who lost her battle to Alper’s Disease. She was a fighter! She was amazingly strong until she became a purple butterfly just a little past her 1st Birthday. She is my strength, my fighter.



For my big races, I usually run in costumes. Since I need ALL the help I can get I always in a tutu so I can make 2 butterflies into tutu so I remind myself that they are with me. Well, the only downside to that is that they get lost in that huge mess of toole! So when I need a quick motivator, now all I have to do is look down at my feet!!!

Many of you know a runner, and want to give them a unique gift besides the all too common running shirt, or distance sticker,well this is the gift to give! Even kids love it!! They have things from hearts, skulls, mustaches, flames, wings, peace signs…it goes on and on! They are just fantastic! I LOVE that I can now wear my guardian angels on my shoes.
