Runner Girl

The other night I started a 5k training program sponsored by a local running store and New Balance. I’m excited that I’m getting serious about a running routine and taking this proactive step. The leader of the group (and store-owner) is a fun guy and the volunteer coaches are great folks. Plus, one of the best parts is the store is very close to where my grandparents lived. So, the workouts involve running through a wonderful old neighborhood that holds many fond memories for me.

Of course, by meeting at this running store, I found myself drawn to the bright colors of the clothing, running shoes and other shiny, feel-good runner-gear. Good thing I didn’t have my wallet on me. There were plenty of the oval stickers and car magnets in stock, too, promoting one’s love of running or celebrating the accomplishment of a half-marathon, marathon or triathlon. I see them EVERYWHERE, to the point that sometimes it makes me wonder, "Who isn't running a marathon these days??"

Then, I saw this one online and it made me laugh out loud.

Not that this is the case for me anymore, but I love the snarkiness of it. ;)


Friends, the Novica giveaway is now closed. A winner will be selected at random before the end of the week. I will email the winner directly with the online code to redeem a gift from NOVICA. The winner will be announced on my blog. Stay tuned!

Congratulations!! running is a great way to keep your cardio up.

LOL... I would be displaying the last sticker/magnet. I wish I could get out there an run - but I do get on the treadmill and it is helping me to walk at a little faster pace than I do without the treadmill.

You will be great!! xo C. (HHL)

Good for you!!!

We just returned from vacation {a marathon of eating and drinking} which mean I am in need of an exercise routine!

I've really tried to enjoy running but it always ends up feeling like a form of torture :)
