Motivation provided by Women's Running magazine

Hi everyone! This week has been pretty busy/emotional for us as we adjust to some new things life has thrown our way. Because of this I know I have been behind on my runs. I did go to the PT gym once this week which I am going to chalk up as a success and I plan to go again on Friday.

I haven't ran since last Friday when my sister and I did the Sole Sister 7 miler. We ran through town, it was pretty uneventful except for the fact we did it at 11:30 and it was scorching hot. I don't know why we thought that was a good idea????

So just when I was feeling a little bad about how my training is going, I came home to something that perked me up! An unexpexted suprise in the mail will always do that!

As part of the Rock n Blog team, I am participating in a collaboration with "Women's Running" Magazine and they sent me some great swag including this Zip up. 

They also sent me this racerback tank. I think this is really cute and love how it has the Women's Running logo on it as well. Those round things shown in both pictures are actually hair ties. I was actually excited about those. Remember that was something I was hoping to get in my Beauty box but didn't.

  14. The jacket and the tank are both super cute! When I started running, one of my friends started buying me subscriptions to running magazines and I am so far behind. You remind me that I need to get reading! I am missing out on all sorts of tips!

  15. LOVE that swag! Surprises like that totally get me motivated and amped for my next run! I have yet to burnout with marathon training (which I'm surprised) but knowing that race day is so close and our team singlets are coming in is getting me so excited! I subscribe to Runners World mag and Women's Health.
