I Love Runnerds

I am sad to see Runnerd Month end! I had something to look forward to every day as people posted their runnerd photos. It was awesome and inspiring. I might just have to do it again.

I'm toying with the idea of doing it again in December. If you've been around I Have Run very long, you know I'm crazy about Christmas. So what could be better than combining two of the things I'm most crazy about, running AND Christmas?!? I could even have a runnerd ornament as a giveaway prize.

Speaking of prizes. Did you see my post for the last day of runnerd month? The word was, of course, RUNNERD! And in case you missed it, this was my picture:

These are the giveaway prizes for the Runnerd Photo-A-Day Challenge. will be selecting the winners of: a water bottle, a coaster, planning calendars (2), car stickers/decals (2) and a car magnet (not shown).

I'll be drawing the winners in the next day or so. I just need to make sure I didn't miss any photos. If you think I may have missed any of yours, let me know. I tried to acknowledge all those posted on Instagram. And I received notifications for all those posted on Twitter and Facebook, as long as they had @ihaverun or #runnerdphotoaday in the post. If you posted only on your blog, please let me know so I can make sure I have given you credit for all your entries.

Thank you to everyone who participated. It was a lot of fun to see how creative everyone was and how much there really is to this little thing we love called running.

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
