About Gone For A Run
'Gone for a Run' .....for a runner these 4 simple words transport us to a realm like no other. It's a place of solitude and companionship, clear thinking and no thinking, pleasure and pain, goals and dreams..... as we challenge our bodies and ourselves. Going for a Run is a commitment you make with yourself, it makes us stronger and defines us.
I'm a devoted wife, mother of 3 sons and a runner who loves to design and create great products. Running had always been a way of life for me, to both de-stress and reset the mind and body. It was not until 2009, when my father (who passed along his passion for running to me) was diagnosed with a terminal illness, that my son Ryan and I ran our first organized race, the NYC Marathon, in his honor. Training for and then running the marathon gave me the strength to get through that profoundly difficult time in my life. After that race, I was captivated by the power of running and it propelled me to create products for other runners to celebrate their accomplishments, stay motivated and fully embrace the running lifestyle. In a few short years, GoneForaRun.com has established itself as The gift source for runners with hundreds of unique and thoughtful proprietary items of apparel and other products for runners and triathletes. Our GoneForaRun family has now grown and we have a team of talented and passionate people (also runners) proudly creating wonderful products and assuring an enjoyable online shopping experience for our extended family of runners!
