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!

Cowtown Half Recap!

On Sunday, February 24, 2013 I ran my first official Half Marathon!  Before the race started, I met up with these fellow MRTT ladies!  Pic from How My World Runs It was freezing cold (yes 33 degrees is freezing to this Texan! haha) and I was hoping it wouldn't warm up too much because I run so much better in the cold. I ended up wearing my jacket the whole time and was completely comfortable! We had a wind advisory in affect and I think the wind made it even cooler. This was also my first time to run with my new haircut and with my hair down! Didn't bother me at all! Short hair for the win! :) I was in the very last Corral to start. Yes, I know I'm slow. Get Over it!<---Saw that saying on several shirts throughout the race!  Looks like I need one! haha :) I had to post this pic, because I have no idea what I was doing, nor remember even taking it! Haha! About 20 min before the race, I headed to the porta potty's. Yeah, I should have

Starting over with something new.

Way back in 2012 I started running...for reals... I ran my first Virtual Half Marathon in June and then in the Fall, I started meeting up with a Moms RUN This Town friend 3-4 days a week to walk/run 3-4 miles with our kiddos in the stroller. We started training for the Cowtown Half Marathon and I started dropping weight. By December, I had lost 35 lbs (this was total since having Sophie, not just in 2-3 months) and I looked the best I had looked in a very long while. Then I ran the Cowtown Half in February of 2013, hurt my hip, stopped running, walked the Dallas Rock N Roll Half a month later and then stopped running for good until August of 2013. I then started trying to pick it up a bit here and there while also participating in Stroller Strides.  The thing is...I started gaining weight once I stopped running. Didn't matter if I was doing stroller strides. I just kept getting bigger. First it was just 10 lbs. I kept it at that 10 lb weight gain from August until January
