Just dropping in for a quick update. Still working on lots of posts that should (hopefully) be more interesting than this, but there are not enough hours in the day and days in the week. Here are the highlights since my last post:

  • I won the MIX1 Giveaway at I Run Because I Can. After I get my prize, I will let you know what I think of it!
  • I ran 30 miles last week. It wasn't easy, but I did it. Did you know 15 miles is a long way to run?
  • I tried two new running products during last week's runs. See my sidebar for reviews.
  • I went shopping. My finds included: a handheld Amphipod (I am not a huge fan of my hydration belt); pepper spray for my husband's peace of mind (and mine!); energy gels; and NUUN.

I will now leave you with the words that have been going through my head all day:

"Life's what you make it, so let's make it rock!"

(Yes, those are the words to a Hannah Montana song; I have a 3-year-old little girl so that's what you get. And you have to admit, she's got a point!)


  1. I can't wait to read what you think of the hand held. Hydration belts drive me crazy! Congratulations on your 30 miles last week!

    Shhh... don't tell anyone, but I have been know to secretly like a few Hannah Montana songs, myself.

  2. Congrats on winning the giveaway and running 30 miles!

    You're smart to carry spray with you. Looks like you had some fun shopping!

  3. Smart to bring pepper spray; I should probably copy you. I ran with the handheld today and it wasn't too bad. I HATE the fuel belt.

  4. Great job on the 30 miles! I am running 25 this week and it is slowly creeping up.

  5. Thanks for your comment! I've heard the Hobble Creek half is awesome. I'll look forward to your report. I don't know where the Provo River half starts. I couldn't find a map online...Since you ran the 10 miler could you tell me? I thought I could maybe run my 8 miler on the first part of it this weekend. Have a good one!


I love your comments! They make my day, so be sure to let me know you stopped by. And I always try to respond to your comments, so let me know if you have any questions for me or if there is anything you want to see on here!
