The Winners Are...

The Runners Choice Giveaway

I pulled my Rafflecopter winners and congrats to




I will email you all for addresses.
I hope you enjoy the oil and it helps sooth your running or cycling feet. 
I got a new look for mine recently...

I am working four ten hour days for summer and they feel long, but I think that may turn my Friday off into my "long run" day. Friday, I got run buddy out of bed early and we managed a 10K. A friend to talk with was a much needed distraction from how hard this run felt. I hope I can convince Kasey to come on a few more Friday runs this summer...
Even at conversational pace (10K)1:04:30, we had to fight to keep it moving. I drank two liters of water with Nuun and my confidence about distance running continues to shrink...

Monday I thought..."I LOVE running, right?"

 Wednesday a.m., I was finally rewarded with a pretty sunrise, an awesome change from the thick gray haze the past few weeks.   

 Friday I washed towels for the second time this week. Sometimes it feels I can't scrub enough after these sweaty runs...


and cheers to doing it all again next week! 

How are you feeling these days? How far was your "long run" this week?

  6. Love the polish! Did you do that yourself or at a nail place? :D
    It's always nice to have a friend to run with :D
    So jealous of your sunrise run, I've been wanting to do one of those lately, but I don't know when the sun comes up.. it doesn't really leave, it's never dark this time of the year *norwegian summers..*.
    I'm feeling good now. I've been tired a lot lately, but I'm starting to feel more rested now. Finally! :) My longest run this week was 8.10 km hahaha, so not very long xD but it was trail, so it was still hard work :)

    1. Thanks Marie :) I go to a little nail shop, I asked for polka dots but she wanted to try stars, so I said why not?!
      It is nice to have a companion to run with, since almost all mine are solo, it was motivation to keep moving.
      I did not realize you have continual sun up in Norway...where my Mom lives sun sets about 10 p.m. in summer, I always enjoy it when I visit because I not used to it being light that late.
      I am glad you are feeling better! I am not doing so well on distance myself, but I keep telling my self the point is to keep moving :) Trail runs are fun tough work :)

    1. Me too, funny how long it can feel in the heat! In the winter a 10K feels like a short run :) Great job on 8 miles, it's only up from here on out for you, right?!
      I am excited to try to get the long run done before the weekend, hoping this plan works out!

  9. I love your toes! Did you do that yourself? So festive and cute. The heat is killer right now. No good way to put it. I've been trying to slow down and drink well, but it's hard! Keep at it! :D
