And....I'm Back!

I ❤ Running :)

Week 5 Day 1 of Couch to 5K is complete! :)

After 2 1/2 weeks of no exercise, I decided to get back out there! Cody and I headed out for a 5K.  Instead of starting over, or going back a week or two, I decided to start back where I left off at Week 5. Just to see what I could do. Well, I am glad I did! I did three 5min runs! I started out thinking, I will do what I can do, and if I need to stop, I will. Well, I didn't need to! I even ran another quarter mile, just for the heck of it! Looks like I will be able to run my 5K in November after all! :) And one of the best parts is....NO SHIN PAIN!!!

I started thinking back about all the running I had been doing. Most of the 1st 4 weeks of the program, I was actually runnning pregnant and didn't even know it. I could tell a Major difference in my one run tonight, compared to the 1st 4 weeks. I was able to breathe better, had a better stride, had more energy, and I could just tell a difference in my own body. It was just an interesting comparison for me...

So I am back and ready to go! Already thinking about Half-Marathon training after my 5K. :)

Now, as I have promised, I have a pair of Compression socks OR sleeves to giveaway from PRO Compression!

This is what PRO Compression has to say about how they work:

The science is complex, but benefits such as improved blood flow, stability and comfort are universally understood.  The moment you put these socks on your feet and incorporate them into your game, you will feel and understand the difference."
I have 4 pairs of PRO Compression Marathon socks and I LOVE them! They have been wonderful for recovery after my last two halfs and after my long training runs!
I didn't own any after my first half, and it took me almost 2 weeks until I could …

Big News!

One of the reasons I haven't been blogging much is because we just bought our very first house!!! Isn't it beautiful!
We don't move in until next week, but buying a house has taken a lot of time! I've been packing our apartment up a little at a time, but we still have A LOT to do!
It's hard to move with a toddler, because you don't want to shake their world up too much. They need their usual toys and to be able to find their favorite shoes amongst the boxes. Taking it slow and moving a little at a time just seemed like the best option.
We are going from a 2 bedroom apartment to a 4 bedroom home!  With a backyard! Down the street from a park! We are going to have so much space!  Being able to go outside in the back and down the street to the park is a huge deal for me!  Sophie and I LOVE being outside! I am so excited! I just can't even describe it! lol :)
And that's not all of the big news!
I also got a job!
It is an office job, where I will be doing t…

Some of my Favorite Things!

I just wanted to share some of my favorite Running gear right now! :)
I'll start with the one thing that everyone knows I already love...
My BOBRevolution SE!
I've been using it for a a few weeks now and I'm still in Love! I'm not sure how I've lived without it these past 15 months! You can read my BOB "review" here! :)

My newest favorite thing are my hotpink Locklaces!

They are elastic shoelaces that  tighten by a "lock". They make it easy for me to just slip my shoe on and go! They are also wonderful because I have had issues with my shoelaces being too tight on the top of my foot and these fix that problem! No more pain! I wish I had known about these forever ago! I will have them on all of my future running shoes!
I love their moto!
Now onto something that I think every single person who is active outside should own. Pepper Spray.
In this case the Personal Saver and the Wrist Saver.
This i the Personal Saver I carry it on my keychain everyw…
