September is Runnerd Month

I put together the list for the Runnerd Photo-A-Day contest/event/whatever you want to call it.

Here are the rules:
  • Leave a comment letting me know you are going to participate.
  • Post a photo that reflects the word of the day somehow. You can post on Instagram, Twitter and/or Facebook. Your images should be running or training or health/fitness related.
  • On Twitter, make sure you include the hashtag #runnerdphotoaday with each post.
  • On Facebook, be sure to follow the Runnerd page and include @runnerds in the comment for your picture.
  • On Instagram, become my friend (ihaverun) and include @ihaverun in your comment.
  • You will receive one entry for each picture you post (up to 30 entry possibilities). I can only count the entry if it is linked back to me somehow, otherwise I won't know about it.
  • I am ordering the Runnerd prizes this week. There will be at least five prize winners, selected by at the beginning of October. I will post the list of prizes once I know exactly what they are.
To receive extra entries, you can invite others to join the Runnerd Photo-A-Day fun before it begins on Saturday. You will receive one extra entry for each place you post (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and/or your blog). That's up to 4 extra entries total. Be sure to let me know you shared the Runnerd Photo-a-Day love so you get the extra entries!

Be creative. We don't want everyone doing the same thing with their pics. If I absolutely love your pic and post it on my blog during the month, you'll get an extra entry.

And don't worry if you miss a day or don't start on day one. I want this to be fun!

  1. oh my gosh this is one of the best and most creative challenges I have seen in awhile!! i am going to attempt to do it

  2. Hey Candice! I want in! My name is Kiesha. You may know me better from Daily Mile. I'll repost this on FB right now. Fun!

  3. What a fun project! I think I'll try to post mine to a Pinterest board.

  4. Alright--I'll give this one a try. I'm not on Pinterest so I'll have to post some other way.

  5. I saw Kiesha's post on Facebook, and I'm in!

  6. I saw Kiesha's post on FB too and I am in, and I posted on my photog blog.

  14. Love this idea!! I'm going to attempt to do it when I can... probably not every day. Great challenge, thanks for hosting!!

  15. Just starting today! This is a great idea to inspire and motivate me to get myself back in gear. I really enjoyed your use of creativity by bringing in popular social media outlets like twitter and instagram. I just purchased a Pedometer Online to track my progress. I am sure I will use my Pedometer for the technology post on Sept. 20th. I hope this idea gets mentioned in a running magazine. You deserve the credit!

  16. I'm starting a bit late, but I am IN! I'll be posting on my blog and on facebook (I'll be sure to tag the Runnerd page in my photo posts on FB!) :)

  17. I just realized I'm posting on Instagram, FB and Twitter everyday and haven't come back to let you know. Oops!

    Loving the challenge :)

  19. Realized I never left a comment that I was going to participate.

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
