30 Days of Thanks!

Several of my blogger friends have decided to start a 30 day of Thanks on their blogs. 
Always a Reason to Run  has put out an invitation for us all to follow!

Here is what she wrote:

"Last year, during the month of November, I completed 30 days of Thanks on my blog.  I am going to start it up again today.  Everyday during November, I am going to post about one thing I am thankful for: it can be serious, silly or simple.  I have so many reasons to be grateful; I want to share the gratitude.  I invite you to try it on your blog, too."

Since I missed Day 1 & 2, I will make them short and sweet:

1. I am Thankful that my hubby found a good job. Even if it is in a different city away from what we have always known! It's the journey together that is making it enjoyable!

2. I am Thankful for cool weather! I love the cold! I am hoping to see snow this year, even though all of the weather men say we won't his year. 

Now for today! 

I am Thankful for being unemployed. I know this is something strange to be thankful for, but I know that God has a plan for me! I believe that He knew I needed a break and I needed more time for Him. To be in His Word and just listen. I have had 2 weeks of this and know that it truly has been for the best. I don't take change well and being able to have this time to get used to my new city and make my apartment feel more like home, has been a true blessing.  

As for my run today, I ran down the sidewalks of my apartment again. 2 miles today! I just couldn't get my body to go anymore. The sun was also setting, so I was trying to make it back before all the crazies came out. HaHa :) I'm still not completely comfortable with random people walking down the street, and even though I do carry mace, I don't want to be out in the dark with them! :) I am thinking about doing my Friday run tomorrow, and my Saturday "long" run on Friday. My hubby has the weekend off and I want to spend the whole weekend with him! :) I will let you know how that goes!

* Will you be able to join in the 30 Days of Thanks?
* Do you like running in the dark down your street?

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…
