Big Announcement!

It's Big Announcement time!

Cody and I...are moving to Fort Worth!!!
Cody has found a job in the area and we are moving October 16th!
I am so excited!
We have already started packing...
Our apartment looks like a fort with all of the cardboard and Rubbermaid taking over! 


We have added at least 4 more boxes since this picture! It's crazy!
And you can barely tell anything is missing!
We have been so crowded in our little 1 bedroom apartment...
Now we will have a 2 bedroom/2 bath apartment, with a fireplace and a little patio!

 This is our new pool! :)

Can't wait to share pictures of the place in a few weeks! :)




Now for tonight's Run...

It went great in the fact that I shaved 15 seconds of my 2 mile time! :)
However, I really was not very motivated...
Cody did not go with me, so I didn't have him to motivate me. And since my lovely little dog chewed my brand new earphones (after only one use!), I had to use Cody's...one of the rubber pieces is missing on them...SO I only heard music in my right ear...I felt like I was lopsided the whole time! lol. That did not help with my motivation. I skipped last night for various exscuses reasons. I'm not sure what's going on...I'm still excited about it, I just have the move and everything I have to do before then on my mind...Hope I get over this soon! I did run 2 miles in 27 minutes and 45 seconds! And walked the last 1.2 miles. Total was 55 minutes. I can't wait until I can shave that time down drastically! I am starting to notice a weight loss as well! I have lost 17 lbs in the past year. the last 7 being in the past 2 1/2 months! Only 95 more lbs to go! I have to keep reminding myself that I will get faster with over time. Especially when I start losing more weight and gaining more muscle! :)




I have already found a park to run at in Fort Worth! I am so excited about that! Fort Worth also has a Runner's Club! I am hoping to join that as soon as I can so I can get hooked up with races and fellow runners! Have I mentioned that I am excited about moving! :)  It looks like they have A LOT of races up there! :) I will have several to choose from!  So exciting! :)

WooHoo! 
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:
"PRO Compression socks are designed specifically to deliver both maximum comfort and speedy recovery times. 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…
