A New Look and 100th Post Give Away!

It's official! 
I am (currently) posting my 100 blog post!

In order to celebrate, I gave my blog a bit of a remake. Something slightly vintage but still cute.
I love it! Don't you? Of course you do. :)

A bit of news before I post about the give away:

1. I am feeling leaps and bounds better now that I've been on the iron pills for two weeks. I'm not nearly as lethargic and I feel almost like I'm back to my old self. HOORAY! I even went to the gym this past week and did two 30minute circuit trainings and then followed each one up with a short run.
It feels good to be back on track.

2. I am going to be running another 5k this Sunday. I almost forgot that my friend Chris had asked if I wanted to run in the Petit Race (in honor of the Petit family and their loss). It's a great cause and looks to be a pretty flat course. Kristin from Running to Somewhere will also be racing so I'm sure we will meet up. Sadly, Stephanie said she had to work. Boo!!

Alright, now for the fun part! 
The Amazingly Awesomely Fantastic 100th Post Give Away!



Ok, it's a bunch of fun stuff I threw together but they are definitely things that (I think) are important for every runner to have in their arsenal. The Give Away Gift Set includes:
  • Relaxing Lavender Foot Cream (because let's face it, we are pretty rough on our poor feet).
  • Fresh Eucalyptus Foot Scrub (to help with the calluses and such).
  • Stress Relieving Coconut scented Bath Soak (for after a hardcore strength training workout- a nice soak is always on my list).
  • Pina Collada scented shower gel (because I didn't feel right including an actual bottle of pina collada mix).
  • Sport Spray On SunBlock SPF 30 (it's summer folks, we need to stay safe in the sun).
  • Chapstick with SPF15 (believe me, your lips can get sunburned also).
  • CLIF Bars in assorted flavors (a great pre- or post-run snack).
  • 3 vouchers for Free Zico Coconut Water (chock full of electrolytes and just as hydrating as water- love it!)
So there you have the break down of everything YOU could win!

My most favorite (and only) race that I've run is the Save-a-Sister Run. It's a local race and 50% of the proceeds go to the local hospital's cancer division to help those fighting breast cancer. I ran the 5k and plan on running the 10k next time. Such a cool thing. Crossing that finish line for the first time was amazing and I can't wait to cross it again.

I think my favorite race so far was the last 5k I did. I was on the fence about whether or not I was going to go and in the end I left work early, went alone and had a great time. It was my worst time and I ate more calories in one dessert than I burned during the run, but it was great to just take off and do something for me that was healthy.

Amy said...

Three entries for me please! My all time favorite race would have to be my only race...the Baltimore Womens Classic!

I love the new blog look!

My fav race was my first 10 mile Crim race last August. It was my first race of that distance and I went into it blissfully ignorant of the many hills. I finished totally on my own, rocked it out and felt awesome afterward. I can't wait to go murder those hills this year!

My fav race is super hard..... Last year, I did the Brooksie Way half marathon, which was a fav because it proved that despite being injured, I still did great. This year, so far, it was the Derby Mini Marathon, because I ran using someone else's bib, so results didn't matter at all, and I did great, but still had fun while doing it.

Favorite race is soooo hard to decide!

I had a total BLAST at the Princess Half. I think it will always be the most fun race I've ever done. But then I ran Eugene and it was my favorite (performance wise). It had special meaning to me and I ran better than I ever have in a half marathon ... so far!

My favorite race so far has been the Komen Race for the Cure -- such great energy and participation! I hope to do the Disney Princess half in February!

Hmm, this is a tough one! I think my favorite race was either my first, First on the First 5K or Rescue Run 5K.

I am a follower on here, just liked you on FB. I don't twitter (hope that doesn't eliminate me).

I have yet to run my most favorite run as it will be on Sunday, August 7th. In my area we are pretty much dark when it comes to races... something to do with the triple digit weather that plagues us. So in order to fulfill my 2011 resolution (I explained on your most recent entry) my running buddy and I came up with a fun run of our own. What started out as a joke between the two of us and just the two of us running the distance of a 5K has become real. I currently have 15-20 women signed up to join me for the first ever "Sisterhood of Running/Walking Buddies... No Buddy left Behind" fun run. That will be my most favorite because so many of my friends, friends of friends and friends of friends of friends are participating in a run that I created just to achieve a personal goal.

OH and I should really win this giveaway. I could use ALL the footsies stuff :0)
