Runnerd Pride

I know, I know. You were dying to see what I got in the mail on Monday, and then I made you wait an extra day to find out. So sorry. At least you could enter my giveaway in the meantime though.

I'll quit making you wait and get right to it. Here's the first thing that made me smile from Monday's mail:

I realize my car is ridiculously dirty, but it snowed and rained all morning while I was out running my girls around, so what you see is what you get. Believe it or not, I washed it two days before this pic. You are supposed to be noticing my awesome new RUNNERD sticker though, not how dirty my car is. I ordered this sticker from the RUNNERD shop. I had to get one to make sure it lives up to my runnerd standards. Obviously it does.

In the same package, I got this:

I really don't like pictures of myself in general, if you haven't noticed from how few actually appear on my blog. But I made an exception for this shirt even though I had to do a self portrait (although I obviously can't figure out where to look when taking a picture of myself using the mirror) because my 5-year-old was already in bed. And I had to wear the black shirt under it because of that darn snow/rain. Hello, spring??? Are you there?

And last but not least, I am going to be sporting these Auria personalizers on my earphones at my half on Saturday:

Speaking of these, don't forget to enter my Auria Exceed Earphone Giveaway!


  1. Loving the Runnerd Pride! You know I'm representing, too (got that sticker on my truck)!

  2. you

    I. freaking. love . that. shirt.

    FYI - your runnerd sticker is hitting the news here in AZ.

  3. The backwards print would be a good attention getter. Not to complicate the merchandise.
    You are such a runnerd rockstar.

  4. love everything in this post: the sticker, the shirt, the personalizers...AND your self-portrait!

  5. Awesome! I love it all!!!! The sticker and the shirt are super cute, as are the earphones! Yay!

  6. Love it! The shirt looks super cute on you.

  7. I feel like I may have missed the memo on the whole Runnerd thing. Is it a blog group? Cute name and cute shirt, though!

    I'm really starting to want a pair of Auria headphones. I may just have to buy the darn things if I don't win a giveaway soon.

  11. I'm pretty disasterous with the self portraits (or any pictures really) too. LOVE the sticker and shirts!

  12. Lucky you -sticker and shirt! Are you picking up your packet for the half on Friday? We should talk soon. Maybe we can meet up?? I don't dare run with you -my pace might be a little "snail-ish" for you. :)

Carpet Burn On My Butt (and a giveaway)

After two lame, pathetic, lackluster weeks of running, I woke up excited to run yesterday. And today, I wore my running clothes all morning in anticipation of my nap time run today. Even in spite of sore glutes and tired quads from getting in some P90X Core Synergistics last night, I couldn't wait to get moving on Millie. I am a planner. Today I had a plan to get my run in while my girls slept, and my day was organized accordingly. I am also a creature of habit. The first thing I do when I roll out of bed every single day is make my bed and my girls' beds. If I do something else first, it throws off the entire morning. I am a creature of habit when it comes to my running routines as well. There are a few things that differ depending on whether I am running on Millie or outside, whether my girls are asleep or not, and whether or not they are joining me in the jogger. Yet, no matter when, where, how far or with whom I run, some things are always the same. My hair goes into a pony

I wasn't sure going in...

Yep, I'm checking in. Why? Because I did something completely out of my comfort zone that I wanted to share with you. Last week I went to a place near Salt Lake called Dexa Body, where I got a DEXA Scan. For those unfamiliar with what that is, I asked Google to help us out:  "Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry  ( DXA , previously  DEXA ) is a means of measuring  bone mineral density  (BMD). Two  X-ray  beams, with different  energy levels , are aimed at the patient's  bones . When  soft tissue   absorption is subtracted out, the  bone mineral density  (BMD) can be determined from the absorption of each beam by bone. Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry is the most widely used and most thoroughly studied bone density measurement technology." Since that is pretty medical sounding, here's my take. A DEXA Scan is a tool to measure your total body composition. It specifically breaks down the regional composition of your lean and fat tissue. It gives a fat distribution

Social Media: Some good, a lot of bad, and way too much ugly

There are a lot of good things that come from social media. We can connect with people we have lost touch with. We can unite as a group (runners!!) with a comment interest. We can promote a good cause. Sadly though, what social media does best is makes us feel bad about ourselves and makes us feel negatively towards others. This isn't just my opinion, although I can unquestionably support the truth behind this based on my own experience. I have spent way too much time feeling bad about myself as a result of comparing myself to others based on their Instagram or Facebook versions of themselves. And there are several people I have started feeling negatively about or have become completely annoyed with because of their IG and FB posts. It isn't just me though. There are actual studies that can back me up on the negative impact social media can have. I have read dozens of articles reviewing many different studies that show the overwhelmingly negative (vs. positive) effec
