LITTLE SOUTHERN WIFE’S SKECHERS WORKOUT

From being a mom of three to blogging and staying fit, Amanda of Little Southern Life does it all! We partnered with our guest blogger to learn more about her mindset on getting in shape, and how Skechers fits into her regular fitness attire. Check out her thoughts and some of her favorite workout reps below.

Y’all, I can honestly say that choosing to invest in my body is one of the best decisions I ever made for myself. It literally changed my life. I lost weight and I didn’t feel like I was being held captive by my own body anymore. Three babies later and now I am in the best shape of my life. Exercising is more than just a way of getting that summer box, it’s about having a little “me time” and focusing on myself. The kids take up most of my time, which I love but if I don’t do a little something for me, I feel my cup becoming empty. I make it a point to get some form of exercise into every single day. It might be going for a walk, a run, yoga class or working out at home to a YouTube video, but I make sure I do it! Working out is a great way to relieve stress, keep my anxiety at bay and overall help me stay in a positive head space. I have noted over the years that the time I didn’t keep exercise at the top of my priorities is when I became depressed easier.

I recently took over Skechers‘ Instagram for the day and showcased how my entire family wears Skechers. To say that we love them is a bit of an understatement. They are SO comfortable and I love all of the new styles they have available. I have been on the prowl for sneakers that I could wear with my workout attire and feel good in while I am exercising. I LOVE the memory foam support inside of these and I wear them pretty much every single day. The only bad thing that I can say is that I wish I would have found these sooner because they are amazing! You can purchase them at your local Skechers or click over to their website to order.

Amanda (Little Southern Life) is a stay-at-home mama turned mompreneur.

BIG PAPI MEETS LITTLE PAPI AT THE DERBY

Boston slugger David “Big Papi” Ortiz took a break from retirement for a trip to Churchill Downs for the Kentucky Derby last weekend.  The all-star traded his baseball uniform for racing silks to hang out with 2015 Triple Crown-winning jockey Victor “Little Papi” Espinoza in the Jockey Room at the famed racetrack. Ortiz recently signed on to become a global endorsee representing Skechers Men’s footwear and Espinoza donned Skechers on his racing pants for the 143rd running of the Kentucky Derby.  Both men proudly represented Skechers at the event known as the most exciting two minutes in sports.

Victor was riding California Chrome at the Belmont Stakes when Skechers sponsored the horse in 2014. This time we partnered with the hall-of-fame jockey himself as he attempted to become one of only four to have won the race four times. When we asked Victor his thoughts on Skechers and the big race, he said:

“When I’m relaxing away from the track, I’ve always loved how comfortable Skechers shoes feel. As my career really hit its stride on the West Coast, I’m thrilled to have such an iconic California brand supporting me on this incredible journey.”

Unfortunately his horse, Gormley, didn’t have a win in his legs this time, but Espinoza made a memorable impression with Skechers on the very sloppy race day track.

After twenty seasons in the majors, ten-time All-Star David Ortiz was ready to lay down his bat. Reflecting on his career and the new partnership with Skechers he said:

“While I knew I’d miss things about the game, I’m definitely able to enjoy my retirement in comfort thanks to my new partnership with Skechers. Toward the end of my career it felt like I was playing on two stubs, but now these Skechers have me feeling like I’m walking on the clouds!”

Watch for David’s campaign to kick into gear later this year with a new television commercial. Check back here for behind the scenes details in the months ahead!

SKECHERS PERFORMANCE LOS ANGELES MARATHON WRAP UP

Sixty runners from 35 countries representing all levels of athletes from around the globe came out to Los Angeles as part of the #GORUNLA campaign leading up the Skechers Performance Los Angeles Marathon on Sunday. It all started at the two-day pre-race expo at the Los Angeles Convention Center where runners, fans and supporters could find an exclusive collection of limited edition footwear, apparel and accessories including the super cool black and white Los Angeles Skechers GOrun Forza 2 seen above.  More than 33,000 stopped by the expo and passed through the massive Skechers Performance booth and had the chance to meet 2016 winner Weldon Kirui and Skechers Performance runner Kara Goucher.

And then on race day over 23,000 runners from all 50 states and 63 countries ran the 26.2 miles from Dodger Stadium to the Santa Monica pier. It was an extremely fun and exciting day for all involved! Several elite athletes wearing Skechers Performance footwear had great finishes including Jane Kibii from Kenya (seen below) who came in second at 2:36:14 and Heather Lieberg from the United States at 2:43:43 for the women as well as Weldon Kirui of Kenya who crossed the finish line fourth among the men at 2:13:24.

We’re also incredibly proud of all the first-time runners this year! Check out Sophie Geoffrion and Chloé Rochette from Quebec, Canada moments after they crossed the finish line—a first marathon completion for both who supported each other through training and every mile of the race. It’s always a thrill to see that joy after crossing the finish line!

After all the hard work it was time to party and relax…and we welcomed our #GORUNLA vip runners, the more then 50 runners from the Skechers team in Manhattan Beach, and all the event supporters at the Starlight Room VIP lounge near the finish line. At this point it was time to catch our breath…the 2018 Skechers Performance Los Angeles Marathon is now less than a year away!  Early bird registration is available through Friday, March 25…learn more at lamarathon.com!
