Today’s Workout: foam rolling, stretching
I’m convinced that the planets are aligned or we are in some sort of alternate universe (shout out to any Fringe fans!). Why? Because I won another giveaway. Seriously. If you don’t remember, I won two giveaways the other day and just found out today from Monica @ Eat, Run, Repeat that I will be getting a $50 Subway catering gift card. 23 years of not winning a thing and in a week this happens? What the heck is going on? I was kidding last time but now I think I really do need to play the lotto.
In light of my recent good luck, I’ve decided I should keep my karma in check and do a giveaway of my own soon. Positive things have been coming my way, so I have to send it back out there! I’m currently brainstorming to try to think of cool ideas, so if anyone has suggestions for a giveaway email me and let me know. And stay posted, I promise I’ll do one and pay it forward as soon as I figure out all the details!
Despite the good things happening in my blogging life, I am unfortunately still injured in real life. This means I’m missing the NYRR Run as One 4m race this weekend. I knew all along I wouldn’t be running this one, but since the race is tomorrow its bumming me out. But at least I’m not in denial anymore like this guy…
I was kind of looking forward to this race though since a few friends of mine from school signed up so we could all run together. Plus, its the first organized race for two of them. But I’ll have to jump out of the runner role and into a cheerleader role for this one. I know they’ll rock it tomorrow!
Since I had already paid and there are no refunds for NYRR races (annoying policy), yesterday I picked up my bib and shirt anyway. This race is sponsored by JP Morgan, which meant the shirts were extra nice. Nike Dri-Fit tech. What a great change from the usual cotton tee that ends up becoming a nighttime shirt. I wish banks sponsored these races more often!
In other running news, I am happy to report that I got my Aspaeris Pivot Shorts in the mail yesterday! I actually squealed like a teenage girl and yelled “Yessss!” when I saw them in my mailbox. Probably a little too loud. Luckily nobody else was around to hear how strangely excited I get over compression shorts. When I eventually run in them, I’ll do a full review for everyone and show you how sexy they look on. But for now I’ll just say that I love them and have been wearing them around the house all day.
They are still 50% off with the code: APS4me, but only until the 30th!
In TV news, did anyone else hear that the Fox show Fringe got renewed for a final season?! If there was one way to make my day perfect, this was it. Its one of those shows I’ve watched from episode 1 and would have been upset if it didn’t have a real ending. Plus, I just love watching Joshua Jackson on TV and would miss his beautiful face terribly. Thanks Fox!
Also, if you haven’t already, please go ahead and like me on Facebook. I’ll be updating it every time I write a new blog post!
