I clearly remember the day someone called me Sporty Spice for the first time. Me?! No way! But after my recent 300th run I can hardly deny it: I love running! And finding colorful or interesting things on my runs became a second nature. While I have no ambition of ever running a marathon, I do need my runs to keep me sane and fit.
Ever since I went for my first 10K race in Nice in January, I run on these neon pink Kalenji Kiprun SD (short distance) shoes. I expected them to be worn out by now, but they are still very comfy and add the right amount of support & color to my runs. You can easily run a rainbow with these shoes, like I did 😉
Apparently I'm not the only one who loves her Kalenji's, because I get so many comments and private messages from people asking where I got my shoes. You can buy Kalenji's running shoes at Decathlon stores around Europe and in their webshop. And even better: you can win a pair here on my blog, because Kalenji and I teamed up to giveaway a pair to one lucky winner! Double Yay!
The Kalenji Kiprun SD shoes were designed for short distance runners who, like me, run up to 15kms. They're very lightweight, fit well around your feet, especially if you lace your shoes with this lacing technique. And even though that shouldn't be one of your criteria when choosing your running shoes: they look pretty good too! I like how they are cushioned thanks to the cushioning ring called K-ring. For all the technical details (like pronation, cushioning, propulsion and more), head over to Kalenji's website. Oh and another good point about these shoes: their price tag!
The things you discover when you run around your neighborhood: a blue Christmas tree and a "man on the moon" sign:
Evening runs are not my favorite (I don't feel very safe) but I loved stumbling upon this little hedgehog on one of my runs:

I've followed you on Instagram – I LOVE your photos, so clever and the shoes tie (no pun intended!) them all together. I did watch that video too – so THAT'S what those holes are for :)
Wat een kleurrijke en schitterende foto's Judith! En wie weet als ik een paar schoenen zou winnen……….dan ga ik rennen! Geweldig dat jij zomaar een paar weg mag geven!
I'd love to win. They look great. And btw I love your running fotos.
I've followed your Instagram for a while love your style. I have started yoga and slowly starting to get fit and healthy I would like to try running so these would be amazing!
YAY! Would love a new pair of running shoes and these look awesome! You were the one who inspired me to start running on IG :)
Je croise les doigts pour cette jolie paire de running. Un petit coup de coeur à force de suivre les chouettes photos de run sur Instagram. Du coup je découvre ton site et c'est un vrai plaisir!
It's so great that you can combine your love of running with your eye for color and design! I just bought a new pair of running shoes, but love trying out different kinds — variety leads to healthy feet, I think!
Would love to win the shoes as I'm running my first Mini-Marathon in September to raise money for an Autism Charity, Shine Ireland which is my nephew's pre-school. These would brighten up my outfit and help keep a smile on my face.
Follow you on Instagram – I've always taken pictures of my feet in different settings! I love floors. Just getting into exercise and sport and am sick of trying to do it in my sneakers! These shoes are gorgeous :) Thank you for the giveaway xx

I should check local Decathlon store for a pair of Kalenji!
You are an inspiration, Judith!
I'm currently looking for really good running shoes. I run since April and I love it! Unfortunately I have problems with my back and I need shoes with soft cushioned soles. Maybe I'll try these :-)
I can't wait to start running in my new neighborhood. I'll be running short distances for sure!
I just decided with a good friend to start running again – we didn't do it since years! I'm missing good running shoes, I'd love to win those colourful pairs!
