Running Diva Mom is having a giveaway for a BIC Band!

BIC Bands stand for "Because I Can" Bands
Their moto is "We run because we can…
for those who can’t so that one day they will!"
The proceeds from the sale of BIC Bands go to support 
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
They are for a great cause, so If I don't win the giveaway, 
I may even purchase one!
Today was my "rest" day from running. Tomorrow I am supposed to run for 20 min. straight. We will see how that goes. :) I decided to go to the gym for the first time in almost 3 weeks. I did 2 miles on the elliptical. :)  I usual do 4, but I did not have the time today. I went home and had a very yummy Spinach leaf and cheese wrap on a whole wheat tortilla! I was craving cheese, so this hit the spot :) 
This evening I decided to try out Yoga at home. I actually bought this DVD in the Dollar aisle at Target. HaHa One whole dollar! It is definitely not the best DVD, but for $1 and 50 min., I think it did the trick. :) It did help me to realize that I need to stretch more. I can barely touch my toes! I want to take a class eventually. I have just been to embarrassed, because I am not limber enough. I feel like I need to practice before I do this in front of others! I also need to purchase some better Yoga DVD's. Anyone have any suggestions?
I am excited, yet extremely nervous about running for 20 straight minutes tomorrow. I know myself and I know I will be very disappointed and discouraged if I don't make it all the way... So I hope I do!

Pro Compression Giveaway!!!

THANK YOU to everyone who has "liked" my Facebook Page and is now following along with me on my journey!!!
And a big, special THANK YOU to everyone who shared my page to help me make it to the big 500!! :)
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…
