Beautiful Morning!



It was another beautiful morning for a 5K Run! When my daughter woke me up at 7 this morning, instead of wishing she would go back to sleep and stay in bed while she pulled my hair and jumped on me for 30 min (yes this happens most mornings lol), I was excited to get up and go running! Yes excited!  I got up, put on my running gear, got the princess dressed, and headed out the door! I finally got the jogging stroller cover in the mail and decided to test it out this morning. It doesn't exactly fit well over my jogging stroller, apparently mine is a bit bigger than others, but it did the job well enough. It kept the strong wind from giving her wind burn and hurting her eyes, so I was happy! It also helped her sleep better apparently...



She is so tall that one of her feet actually stuck out from under the cover! lol I love that she will sleep while I run now! She's knocked out! Still oh so adorable in her little hat though! :)

It also makes for some wonderful wind resistance! Ha! I got a strength training session in there this morning too! I just keep telling myself, it will make me stronger! That only helps sometimes.When I'm not trying to run up an incline with the wind slapping me in the face and the stroller trying to roll backwards over me! lol :)

Today's run makes 3 days this week! Go me! I'm hoping to run Friday and Saturday also and then take Sunday off, but we will see! I'm going to attempt to keep a schedule of running 6 days a week, but I won't beat myself up if life happens and I can't. This is my new goal now though! I want to at least look a little smaller in my bathing suit when we take the Princess to the beach this summer! :) I also plan on spending a lot of time in the pool! Especially if we have a summer like last year when most days are over 100 degrees! :) I can't wait! I'm so excited to introduce Sophie to the water! I hope she loves it as much as I do! :)

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…
