Living, Eating & Running..
Born to Run Water Bottle HERE:
The folks at Born to Run were kind enough to send me this AWESOME Water Bottle. With the warm months approaching this came at the perfect time. I am a HUGE advocate of water. I have water on my desk and try to drink 2-3 bottles full each day. While I was in focused weight loss mode water played a major role in my success. Often when you feel hungry you may just be thirsty.
This bottle is stainless steal, holds 24oz, is just $15.95 and a GREAT conversation piece. And who doesn't want to drink out of something that screams "Talk to me about running!" Check it out and buy one today HERE.
So often at night I fall victim to the need for something sweet. Trouble is those sugary tasty treats often break the calories bank negating my 3-7 miles of calorie burn that day...UGH!! The Little Studs love Nilla Wafers, and a kid myself I like them too. I was looking at the box and WOWZERS! I can eat 8 wafers at 140 calories. Check out the info on The Daily Plate HERE. I know that pure and natural foods are best.....but if you feel the NEED to have a little cookie-like snack without the calories, Nilla Wafers are not a bad choice.
Gone for a Run BibFolio HERE:
Where do you keep your race bibs?? I asked myself that question once I received this fun and useful personalized BibFolio. Some bibs were in a makeshift scrapbook, some were in my bedside end table and others....hmmm stuffed in an old race bag somewhere.

Tall Mom Thoughts:
I had a blast putting my race bibs in the Bibfolio. I love that mine reads "Tall Mom on the Run". There are some bibs I would not put in the BibFolio because I want them displayed, Eugene Race bib for example. But this is a great and organized way to keep them together.
Races 2 Remember Pace Band HERE:
Anything that gives you inspiration on race day is important. The letters BQ were displayed on my pace band as a reminder of my goal in Eugene. Pace bands are important especially for those who do not have a Garmin and because doing math late in the race can be tough.
- What Races 2 Remember Says:
Make a custom pace band to fit your race. You don't run an even pace, why should your pace bands? Is your first mile really the same as your last? What about hills? Our unique bands will account for the hills and your pacing strategy. We'll customize a set of bands to fit any course and any plan. Start slow, build a cushion, hit the wall. Plan your pace mile by mile. Our Smart Pace Calculator lets you see different pacing strategies for your goal time! Each set of waterproof bands is made to fit the course you are running - whether it is Boston, or a small race in Kansas.
Tall Mom Thoughts:
You get 3 Pace bands for $7....which means you can have a band to practice with on a long training run, one for race day, and one for a second Marathon with a different time goal. The band is high quality, does not fall off, easy to read and I love that they will help you design a Smart pace strategy.
- It is drizzly raining here, so I brought a hat. Sounds funny but I am sort of excited to run in the rain. It is refreshing. The smells are fresh and pungent. The rain hitting the water makes me feel at peace. I am getting my running grove back and it feels good.
