Some of my favorite family memories are running half marathons together then getting pedicures after the race. This past weekend my family ran a half marathon in Las Vegas, and I thought it would be fun to create half marathon survival kits for the girls, complete with everything they need for an awesome at home pedicure.
When my brother got engaged ten years ago, I made a “bet” that I would run at least five times a week until the wedding. That goal turned into the next goal – run a half marathon with my dad. We ran our first half marathon in Ohio that fall, our second the next spring, and the third, the following winter right before my wedding. And that turned into our ultimate goal – run a half marathon in every state.
Somewhere along the line, my little sister got old enough to join us on our runs. And our tradition turned into running the races together and getting pedicures afterwards. This past weekend, the Las Vegas half marathon was actually a night race, so we knew we wouldn’t have time to get pedicures after the race. So instead, I decided to just add everything we would need for us to do our own pedicures to our half marathon survival kits.
If you like pedicures, you are going to love the new Amopé Pedi Perfect that you can pick up at Target in the foot care section. And now is the perfect time to buy one because between November 9 and November 22nd you get a free $5 Target gift card when you buy a Pedi Perfect and there’s also a Target Cartwheel offer for 10% off from November 2nd to November 22nd!
The Pedi Perfect is an electronic foot file perfect for giving yourself an at home pedicure. Pair it with the Amopé Foot Cream for soft and healthy feet! Then add a nail file, nail polish, and a cozy pair of socks for the perfect pedicure kit. My sister’s feet are awful from all of her training, and she loved the Pedi Perfect!
In addition to the pedicure kit, my half marathon survival kit also includes snacks, drinks, and some much-needed pain medicine. Just wrap it up cute, and you have a simple gift idea to celebrate someone who’s worked so hard to reach a huge goal like running a half-marathon.
And if you don’t know anyone who is running a half marathon anytime soon, I also created a holiday survival kit version as well, perfect for holiday gifts or hostess gifts during the holiday season!
