So today is the last day of my vacation:( I think I have come up with a pretty good plan that I think the federal government should adapt and start enforcing. My idea goes like this….. I think at least once every 3 months everyone should get one week off from work, paid of course, and not count or take away from vacation time!! Any one else agree?? If any one has connections with the president or such and can help get this passed PLEASE FEEL FREE!! Oh and THANKS LOL!!
Although the only place we went to was an overnight trip to a water park, I do have to say this has been a great vacation!! The main reason I say it was great is I REALLY put some miles in last week, thanks to my new-all the time-running buddy SHERI (and now Katrina will hopefully be joining us as well :) I had a couple of bloggers in the past comment to me about finding motivation and how much better it is to run with a partner, but until I did it this week I truly did NOT understand how different it is!! Let me just say I LOVE IT!! I feel like I have refreshed myself and am now ready to become a “better” runner. I hope we get to keep up this adventure together for years to come but i am pretty sure we will:) :) 17 miles is what I put out last week, i haven’t done that since half training at the beginning of the year!! I was a little nervous on race day that all the mileage would hurt my performance, however I really think that it helped! Although I was a little aggravated about my time, I was able to run the entire 5k and I was able to use the biggest hill in the course to help power up and over!! I felt GREAT when it was over and that is what is important!
Now for the REAL reason you are reading this…the GIVEAWAY!!! I recently was given the chance to review SWEATY BANDS and all(well not really all) I can say about them is I LOVE THEM!!! These are by far the greatest headbands I have found so far. It NEVER slips on my head and holds all of the wispy hairs back. Another thing I have also noticed about them is while running it directs the sweat away from my eyes which is a big plus by me!! I was also sent a handful of GU gels to try out from Scott @OutsidePR. I am not a huge fan of the gels, they are so thick I sometimes have a hard time stomaching it to get the entire thing in my mouth, just a mental game I am sure! The flavor is Orange and really is quite good. When I do get them down, the taste isn’t so bad but I only like the fruity flavors! And of course there is the Running Chics, who doesn’t enjoy Running Chics stuff! SO the prize package shown above includes: 2pack of SWEATY BANDS, 2ORANGE GU gels and a Running Chics tote!!
