something funny I saw on Facebook
Some exciting things that have happened
- I participated in the GU 100,000 mile challenge on Strava and even though I really ran over 150 miles in the challenge period I only logged 118 with them because I wanted to get the Peanut Butter GU and not the Roctane.
- Since so many people particiapted in the challenge and we collectively ran over 200,000 mile GU is also going to send all of the participants a GU sampler pack..YAY!
- I won a a weekly sweepstakes drawing from the Vega Sport Facebook page and get $200 dollars in Vega Sport products as a prize.
I did a review of the Vega Sport products a while back and my favorite thing was their protein bars. I ordered three boxes of those, and some of their recovery accelerator and since my older sister is so awesome I ordered her a box of the protein powder.
I haven't posted since the Boston Marathon, I had to work that day but whenever I had a spare minute I would open the Boston website and start tracking runners to see how their very HOT marathon was shaping up. I could imagine how hot it must be getting as split times slowed. It was very inspiring to me to see all the runners make progress and eventually finish. I should have wrote down everyone I knew running since there were I few I forgot to look up.
Great job to all the runners that ran in Boston!
I tried to send cooling vibes though I don't think it worked very well. I am really hoping my marathon in July isn't too hot! Temps for it historically start in the 50s at 6 in the morning and by noon are in the lower 80s. I plan to be done before noon. Hopefully before 10, but since it is my first marathon I am trying not to place any high expectations on myself, especially if it has the possibility of being a hot one.
and finally something to remind myself whenever I start freaking out about running a marathon.
