A Peek Inside

What did we do this week?
You all know my week last week was full of heart ache. I did go to the gym two times, did a 3 mile run and a 5 mile walk and spent the rest of the week consoling Baylee. The weekend picked up a little as I saw an old friend, went to a Maroon 5 concert, and then met Blogger Meg ( from Meg Go Run).  We got together at a park and did a very long walk and talked a lot! She is SO sweet! We could have stayed there all day but it was like 100 degrees and we were both dripping with sweat after a couple of hours. Yes we talked and walked for hours!  -M
  Saturday morning I woke up and had to teach Body Pump. Usually after Body Pump I teach RPM(cycling) but there was a Zumba party going on so I thought I would take that. After taking it, I've mad the conclusion that I am not coordinated nor have any rhythm. There were many people there that didn't have the coordination as well so I didn't feel too out of place. It doesn't matter what you do, as long as you get out there and do it. Zumba may not be my thing but I think it is a great workout for people that want to just have fun and dance. After class I felt that I didn't get the most out of a cardio workout so I ended up running four miles around town. -L

The rest of the day I had a quiet afternoon and watched a couple movies. The next morning I planned on doing a semi long run, but I slept in too long and only managed to complete three miles. It was way to hot and humid! I came home and made buffalo chicken dip for the Eagles game that afternoon. We just relaxed and watched the game. I was sent a pair of compression socks in the Rock n Blog box that were way to big for me, but they fit Bad Ass perfect!
This was the first time he ever tried them on and he wouldn't stop talking about them the rest of the day about how good they felt after all the running he has been doing. He always sees me wearing them and I think he felt like he was missing out by not having a pair. Well now he does. My sister and I were both sent a Rock n Blog running box filled with goodies. I was happy to be able to share some of them with him. Let's take a look inside and see what else Competitor was generous enough to send us!
Compression socks, lots of fuel and goodies, a gift card, a battery charger for all our devices, and a really cool running hat by Brooks.
This is why I thought this hat was so cool, it has a zipper in it. I've never seen a hat with a zipper in it before. I believe it would be difficult to store fuel or something I would need for a run inside it but it might be convenient to store a key in it.
                                            And of course we received Rock n Blog tech shirts!
How was your weekend?


  1. Oh! You reminded me I need to go stock up on Gu!
    For some reason, this summer it has been really hard for me to run. I used to love the heat. Now I just want it to cool down, but that won't be for another two months at least here.

    1. I do love the heat too but this summer it has been harder for me to run in it and I 've even been doing shorter distances too. Perhaps I just can't tolerate it like I use too!

  2. It feels good to sleep in, and I've been doing a bit of that this summer. Yesterday was the first day I woke up before 7, so I could get my run in and be done early.

  3. I used to love Zumba! I would do it with my friends for fun & then would be dancing to the sings or the rest of the day! I just not have time for it anymore though. I like the print on that hat!

  4. So fun, I have always thought it would be fun to meet fellow running bloggers and go for a run!
    Love all the stuff you guys have. Actually think the hat is pretty cool! I am a hat runner, rarely run without one, and I actually always tie my key through a loop on the drawstring on the inside of my shorts, but having it in a hat, would be perfect, I don't think a single key on the head would even be felt.

  5. That is a very cute hat. The zipper is a great idea for a key or ID. I've never tried Zumba and would probably be a total dork with the dance moves. LOL

  6. Is was great to meet you this weekend, Merenda! I can't believe how hot it was. We should have jumped in the creek!

  7. It reached 117 here this weekend, so running wasn't gonna happen this weekend. I love the tech shirts.

  8. The shirts that we were sent are so cute! After I wash it I'm going to see if I can squeeze into it. It would be nice to wear it at least once this year!

  9. cute hat and a great box of goodies! I used to love Zemba but they kept changing the instructor on me and I just got disinterested :(

  10. There was some fun swag in that box!! I loved the hat too!! I've been trying to get my hubby to try compression socks too, but he won't for some reason. He won't buy into it!

  11. Love the zippered hat!
