Yesterday I didn’t get to my run until about 4:30pm. I slept in instead of getting on the treadmill and taught a BOSU class earlier in the day, but didn’t fit in a run. Man, it’s tough to do it in the afternoon. Not my cup of tea, but that was the deal I made with myself.
I took it very slow, but got in 9 hilly miles.
Sported some new super comfy Tommie Copper compression capris too.
Spoiler alert- review and a GIVEAWAY coming up tomorrow.
This morning there were a few scattered showers. I had a few scattered runs. Ha.
Managed to not sleep in past the alarm for a change and got in 10 easy treadmill miles.
Super cute movie.
Super sweaty Halo headband.
Super cool kiddo with a super cool mask Daddy made at 5:30 am that needed mama attention so my morning run was done.
Later on taught a spin class and did a couple really short runs at the gym (to catch the end of Kelly and Michael) and then at home to watch the rest of the movie.
15.5 miles total for the day. None of them fast like I planned, but oh well. Got it done.
Did you see the LOVE reveal?
Oh heck yes, some of you had it right, the new Love Grown Foods product is Power O’s. This awesome cereal.
These Power O’s come in 4 different flavors and we’ve been eating our way through all of them.
Seriously, we’ve been eating A LOT of these.
Pretty cool that they’re made out of beans and brown rice flour.
These are the stats for the strawberry ones. They have a plain flavor that has very minimal sugar. We can attest though that all the flavors are darn good.
Yep, love them all.
And….. you can still enter the Power O’s GIVEAWAY for a couple more days!
Just now our afternoon snackage went down a little something like this.
Power O’s for the boys.
This stuff is dangerous.
Some other news to share and pass along today:
SunButter is having a special contest.
They’re asking for videos and pictures of what you do with SunButter. All you have to do is post it on their Facebook page here.
Every entry gets a free jar of SunButter and one lucky winner will get a $500 Amazon gift card. Oh man what I could do with $500 on Amazon. Ha.
And…….. reader Emily, who just recently ran her first marathon and did 20 miles on the treadmill for the STUFT 60 Challenge with us sent me this picture of her and her best friend, Gretchen. Gretchen just completed her first ever 5K and rocked it!
Virtual hugs and high fives to both of you!
I also got this email from reader Heather with her incredible story.
My name is Heather Von St. James and I’m reaching out to you today in hopes that you will help me with a cause that is very near and dear to my heart. At age 36, I was diagnosed with mesothelioma just 3 ½ months after my first and only child, Lily, was born. I was given just 15 months to live unless I underwent a drastic surgery to remove my left lung. Miraculously, I beat the odds and I’m still here eight years later.
Asbestos is not banned in the US, yet it’s the only known cause of mesothelioma. I was exposed to asbestos through my fathers work jacket when I was just a little girl; my diagnosis came about 30 years later. Once diagnosed, most patients die within 2 years. I am one of few survivors who openly share their story and work to spread awareness regarding the dangers of asbestos.
In honor of Asbestos Awareness Week (April 1-7), I have created a webpage dedicated to raising awareness. I would love it if you would be willing to share it on your blog to help educate and protect your readers from this preventable disease!
Here’s the link to my awareness page: http://mesothelioma.com/heather/awareness
And.. not sure if you’re nosey like me, but I saw this article what ultrarunner Dean Karnazes has in his fridge.
I don’t know why I always think it’s so fun to look in other people’s fridge. I guess I like looking in their cupboards too actually.
And a couple inspirational quotes just because:
And this one is pretty much the story of my life.
Okay, I’m off.
That green plantain cake AND a clothing review/giveaway coming up tomorrow.
Have a good one!
