Just keep Swimming...

Today I found out that I won a Giveaway hosted by Running Diva Mom! It was a gift certificate for Amy Cornwell Designs! This is what Amy made for Running Diva Mom:
 Of Course...I will have to have one with A Runner's Heart on it! Haha :) Just trying to decide on the design! :)
She has the cutest designs from necklaces, to bracelets, keychains, and even clutches made with fabric! Everyone should go check out Amy's designs!  Looks like a great place for Christmas shopping! :)

My title "Just Keep Swimming" of course comes from Finding Nemo! I love that movie. It is very fitting for me right now. I have found my self in a new city and without a job for the first time in 8 years. It's crazy! I was trying to think of stuff I needed to do next week....looks like running and applying for jobs are the only 2 things on my To Do list! :) I'm not sure if I like this or not! I hope boredom eating doesn't start crawling back! I have to admit....I have been a little scared about running in a new city. I had become comfortable on my little 3.6 mile trail. I knew who to expect out there at night and became comfortable with my surroundings. Now I have to find a new trail, in the daytime, with HILLS! It is a little intimidating. I keep putting of running because...well...I don't really like change. But...It is time for a new adventure! Tonight I went to our apartment "workout" room (if you can call it that haha) and did 2 miles on the elliptical. I just needed a little confidence boost that I still have it in me. Tomorrow I will be doing more on the elliptical and I am hoping to go and find a park to run in. I have to just jump in and do it! Wish me luck! I do have a Half-Marathon to train for! :)

  1. Moving to a new city always feel like starting over, which in some ways can be great, but also sucks when we lose all the familiar things that made home feel like home. Hopefully you find a trail that will eventually feel like home again.

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…
