Reviews & My Vacation

I just LOVE being on vacation, even not going anywhere, I LOVE vacation. The feeling of not having to report anywhere by a certain time, not having to stay within the same 4 walls for 7.5hrs a day for 5days a week= I LOVE IT!! Yesterday I started my first day of vacation at 7 am going for a nice 4mile run with one of my running buddies!! This is the first time EVER that I have been able to ENJOY that and let me tell you enjoy it I did!! So much so that I am planning on doing it again on Thursday and possibly Friday! Today we did go to The Beach waterpark in Cincinnati, Ohio! It was really a great family time trip, I got to spend some REAL Quality time with my girls!!  Also the running buddy mentioned has started a blog of her very own so PLEASE be sure to check out Sheri's blog HERE!! And tell her I sent ya!!

So recently the Awesome (anyone notice how I like using the word awesome alot?) Scott from OutsidePR sent me a couple of products to try out. One of the items was some Sugoi RS 1/4 Socks. (Below is a picture of my socks) This is the first pair of true running socks I have ever tried out and I REALLY liked them. The first time I wore them I was a little unsure, my feet slide around inside my shoes and was concerned about possibly getting blister. However once I started running it was ALL GOOD! My socks were dry for once after running not all wet and soggy like just plain regular socks. Most definitely would I recommend buying some of these socks. I have looked around there web site and they have several nice looking products!!

Another Sugoi product I was given to try out is Visor. I have never run in a hat of any kind before and have really been wanting to. This past weekend I decided to try out my visor because I knew the course was mostly sunny. I have to say I LOVE this visor! It is so light weight and incredible soft fabric I didn't even feel it on my head at all!! The only problem I had and it may just be my head is I had a hard time adjusting it small enough to fit right(not saying my head is tiny or anything). Once during the race I tried pulling it down  a little and the entire strap came loose in the back and I had to readjust it to get it back on. Other than that small detail it was, well AWESOME(there it goes again)!!
Below is my wearing my visor and socks!!

One last thing I would like to share is the GoLite daily giveaways! Here is the info I was given about it:

I love the idea of a visor, but have yet to find one that doesn't give me a headache. Maybe that's the one!
