-I finally joined Twitter, I felt like I was missing out on a whole world with my Runner Buddies. If you are on Twitter please consider Following me J I am hoping to host a Twitter related Giveaway this week! I am in Social Media overload.. You can follow me on Facebook HERE, Twitter HERE and DailyMile HERE.
-I am LOVING my new job. I get off at 3:30 every day, my commute is only 25 minutes (not including the coffee stop), and the stress level is way down. This life change is just what I needed. Sometimes taking a leap of faith can land you exactly where you should be. Last week I got to attend LS #1's Kindergarten Zoo Fieldtrip... so much FUN!
-It is my Birthday week!!! I turn 33 this Thursday, Flag Day. If you have read this Blog for more than a minute you know that 33 is my favorite number, so this year is bound to be AMAZING. This weekend I celebrated with my college friends, it was so much fun! They have growing families, so seeing all the kids together was a blast. I may have had a bite of carrot cake for breakfast this morning.. It is my Birthday week, don’t judge..
-Team Honey Buckettes earned 1st place in the Female 4 person Division!! This meant we won Golden Spikes from Rainier to Ruston and since we made the “podium” wearing our Team Sparkle Skirts we also won skirts. I am still on a high from this relay, although I felt horrible that day, all I can think about is how much FUN I had with my friends.
-It is amazing when you get an unexpected comment, the Runner we stayed behind in the Relay who was Finishing the 50+ miler commented on my last post. So excited!! Congrats again, mad respect. Speaking of crazy AMAZING Ultra Runners check out Dailymile and give props to my friends: Janice HERE ran 52 miles in the middle of the night and Shelly HERE ran 62 miles while continuing her running streak of 764++ Days and counting!!
-My friend Janna recruited me to run the White River 5K HERE this Saturday.. should be FUN! Check it out, there is still time to Register! Not sure what pace I will run for this, but I plan to Sparkle. Muscle Man may run too if we can find a Kiddo Sitter..
-Rock N Roll Seattle is right around the corner!! I look forward to this event every year... Thursday night I will be attending a Run Like a Mother the Book get together!! Friday afternoon I am working with RNR to have a Blogger meet-up at the Expo, details soon! Generally I host a Bloggy Dinner on Friday night but this year I have been invited to a special Blogger Online Shoes/Brooks Running Event. Since it is a new start line I am not sure where to meet for a pre-race photo?? As always we meet up in Family reunion area "B" for Blogger.
Another very important piece... I found my outfit, here is a little preview:
Top from JCPenneys for $17, I also got a skirt for $17.
Pure Project shoes should arrive this week, pretty sure you NEED these too, buy them HERE.
It is a little WILD, but hey it is Rock N Roll Baby!! I am excited to run the Half Marathon, I registered for a 1:45 Half…oops, I think last year I had visions of training FAST. I am in Corral #4, I may move back with my friends, will see how training goes the next weeks. Will I run solo???
-Muscle Man and I have a Half Marathon on June 15th Fueled by Fine Wine In Dundee, OR, so we are back to training. We ran a 10 miler on Sunday, following the path I learned at the Relay. Poor guy was not feeling his best but he pushed through. I tried Espresso Love Gu for the first time. YUMMERS!! It is like a mid run coffee break and gave me the pick-me-up I needed.
-Loads of Reviews coming tomorrow- Handheld Water bottle, Garmin 310XT, Moving Comfort outfit, Champion Bras and their new website, and more…. Check in for “Test Lab Tuesday” tomorrow.
