Steals, Deals and a Winner

Steals, Deals and a Winner



Taught some classes at different gyms throughout the day: spin, Y50X, step

Walked a mile on the treadmill and did the elliptical for 40 minutes after my night classes


Then I could barely keep my eyes open on the way home from my evening classes. So darn tired.

I totally made my step class suffer through some new combo experiments. They took it like champs though. They are way too nice putting up with me week after week.


I’m taking a quick break from recapping the entire Big Sur Marathon weekend extravaganza to share some steals and deals. Some don’t last long so you need to know about them like right now.

I’m the queen of trying to use expired coupons by the way. Or telling them that I left my coupons at home. Sometimes it works, most often it does not.


I could not get enough of these guys today.


Hugs. Hugs. And more hugs.


Random food from the day:

I’m still on the whole nutty americano kick.


I had eggs twice this morning. Savory first, then sweet (in the form of a cinnamon sugar breakfast STUFTwich) second. For the first time ever I succeeded in making a runny yolk. I forget what the technical egg term is for that. I was pretty proud though.


I also made a heck of a snack with a Flatout cinnamon crisp bowl filled with some peanut butter “frosting”, a microwaved coconut cashew Quest bar and some fruit.


I also got this limited edition Total Lean Key Lime Pie flavor from GNC.


I’m so excited. I don’t know what to make first. Hmmm…..


The winner of the Oakley Sunglasses from The Sunglass Shop as chosen by random.org is

#78 Ashley @ My Food N Fitness Diaries.


Oh yay!! Email me your mailing address. You’re going to be the coolest new mom around town with those frames.


Here’s some steals and deals for everyone else.

First of all, Halo Headbands just got a twitter account (follow them here) and I’m pretty much obsessed with some of their products since I discovered them at a race expo so I thought I’d do a little feature on all of my favorite things.

They have Halo Sport Hats that I wear religiously when I run outside.


They have an adjustable velcro back


and the fabulous Sweat block seal. Find out about how it works here– it’s no joke. It totally keeps the sweat out of your eyes and face.


Oh yes, they have light weight race visors too with the same sweat block feature and an elastic strap.


They have regular sport visors in all sorts of cool colors also.


Those are the ones I usually wear.

If you’re not a visor or hat person, they have Halo Headbands in the original tie version,

the Halo II pull over version


and the Halo V velcro version.


And, well, that’s not all. They now also have no slip Halo Hairbands


in all different colors


and 1 inch or 1/2 inch sizes.


I like to do a little combo with their different products. My new fashion statement for races is a visor with a hairband to try to be cool.


For the race Sunday I went with two hairband to change things up a bit.


And yeah, I’m not the only one who loves Halo around here.


We’re all big fans.

Halo has a special contest going on on their Facebook page right now. They have a new sweatband coming out in a 1” version (I can’t wait for some of those). They’re trying to figure out a name so if you enter the contest and your idea for a name is chosen, you win one for free.

Check out the contest here on the Halo Facebook page.

Also, here’s a special promo code for you for FREE SHIPPING on ANY orders.


It expires May 15th.


You know what goes well with headbands? Pro Compression socks of course.


They have a GREAT GIVEAWAY going on right now, but you need to hurry because it ends May 1st.

Sarah has all the details here on her blog, here they are again just in case.

There are two ways to enter and you can do both for 2 entries:

1. Purchase any PRO marathon socks or calf sleeves using promo code SHOES (good for 40% off Marathon Socks & Marathon Calf Sleeves only, with free domestic shipping)

2. Send a 4×6 postcard by US Mail with the following information:

  • Your full name
  • Your complete address
  • Valid email address (if you do not have an email address, print “no email address”)
  • Valid telephone number
  • The words “Shoes Promotion”


Mail postcard entry to:

PRO Compression, 5205 Avenida Encinas, Suite F, Carlsbad, CA 92008

Pretty stinking awesome, yes?



And speaking of Sarah, she just got a PR Sunday at the Eugene Marathon (her 46th marathon). The girl is amazing.


I showed you a quick picture of the cool necklace I found at the Big Sur expo already, but I didn’t show you all the other stuff I found at my new fancy little Endure Shop jewelry booth.


The cutest running inspired jewelry ever.

I fell in love with just about everything there. The earrings, rings (this one in particular),


and all the necklaces.


I was obsessed with the road runner necklace.


Here are my two reasons: Um, Mizuno friends, the road runner is their symbol.


Also, my mother-in-law loves road runners and so she may be getting one of these for Mother’s Day from the boys.


You can check out all their jewelry here.

Here’s another special discount to get $15 off any online purchase of $50 or more ($50 not including shipping charges). Hurry with this one though too because it expires 5/5.



Well, okay, I don’t want to leave you hanging or anything, so here’s a little something something from my good friend Sarena’s husband Tony, who is am AMAZING artist (obviously).

We’re coloring some of these today and I don’t want anyone to feel left out, so go ahead and print some out for yourself.




I want to give you something else. I know right? Something else in addition to that awesome picture of Kitty.


I want to give one of you a HALO product of your choice. Any product, any color.

Sound good?


All you have to do is leave me a comment here telling me what product you would choose if you won (and the color just to humor me)..

Follow @haloheadband if you’re feeling a little nice today. No pressure. Just trying to give one of my favorite local companies some love.


*Giveaway will run until Thursday, May 2nd at 10:00 PM PST. Winner will be randomly chosen and announced on the blog Friday. Open to US residents only.


Have a good one. More fun Big Sur race chat to come.

    Wow, I didn’t know Halo had that many products. That’s great! I would chose the WHITE VISOR so that I could mix and match headband colors without looking too color crazy, haha.

    Can’t wait to see what you do with the key lime powder… maybe a mock key lime pie made with chob and a flat out crust? Just tossing it out there 🙂

  35. 35
    Dawn says:

    I’d try the Halo II in teal! I didn’t know they had so many types of headbands. Do you have a favorite? It seems like the velcro one could be good too. I’ll put in my vote for some kind of key lime pudding (chia pudding?).

  69. 69
    Breanna says:

    I can’t decide between the Halo black visor and the thin headbands. I would probably be more likely to run in the headband, but that visor would come in handy ALL the time. So I guess I’ll go with the visor 🙂

    I am dying to try a Halo product because I sweat … a lot…..I think I would pick the headband, the thicker one. And probably pink.

    The hat in white — Florida is already up in the 90s! Eeek!
