My Xmas Present to YOU: Vintage Running Ephemera

Merry christmas and happy holidays to all! As my gift to you, here are some old dandies that will hopefully tickle your fancy whatever you may be up to today:




Interestingly, there was much focus on women's running - ads and articles:







I would DIE for a singlet like this:











I believe that the 1st Chicago marathon was in 1977, so this must have been the 3rd running:

This ad confuses me but whatever:






This is what my boyfriend and I look like when we go out running together:



I love everything vintage so this totally speaks to me right now. Have a great day - hope everyone is warm with something or someone they love.
I'll report running updates soon (I have some!).

I like the one with the lotion, sounds like something you would say to someone before fighting "I'm gonna Ten-O-Six your face"!!

Hope you are having a fun trip.
