There’s exactly one week left to get your Valentine’s Day plans together. If you’re a slowpoke or simply clueless, we’re here to help you!

Your No-Nonsense Valentine’s Day Guide will give you a few suggestions on how to make this Valentine’s Day the best one yet:


IScreenYouScreen has lots of prints to help express how you really feel.


The OpenTable app is the easiest way to make a dinner reservation. Download it now!


Personalized gifts, FTW! Create a CD/playlist for your lover’s ears only. The songs can be from your first dance, a live concert you attended together or just a tune that reminds you of that special someone.


Get close and personal! We have a lot of couple friendly deals on gtrot. There are so many options ranging from a chocolate & wine tastings to dance lessons. Search for your city on the gtrot homepage and once you’re in, click the Deals tab to see what’s available.


Show your partner your soft side. Make a donation to a charity:water or a charity of your choice in their name. It’s the gift that keeps giving.

We hope you all have a wonderful Valentine’s Day!

The Color Run looks like the most fun 5k we’ve ever seen. You don’t have to do much training for The Color Run, as it is more about enjoying the day and less about speed. Each person will start the 5K in a clean white t-shirt and finish covered in color! Every kilometer has a different color, so when runners/walkers hit the kilometer color zone, the volunteers, sponsors and staff will blitz them with color. The 5k finish color zone isn’t just one color- it’s a color extravaganza!

The 2012 Tour de Color Run is rolling into 18 US Cities. Convince your family and friends to register for The Color Run closest to you. We’re sure it’ll be a crazy fun time!
