Wicked Random Wednesday 6.11.14

Yesterday’s Workout: 3.07 miles @ 30:00 (treadmill run)

It’s been a while since I last posted, and I apologize! It started with me deciding to take a break from blogging over the weekend and actually relaxing, and ended with a craptastic beginning to my work week (I’ve been putting in 12-hour work days!). All I have to say is: Thank God for running to keep me sane! I really wanted to do a weekend wrap-up post but now it is Wednesday, so I thought I’d incorporate a few things from my weekend into this week’s Wicked Random Wednesday. Continue reading

Ten Dollar Tuesday: My Soxy Feet

Today’s Run: 3.11 miles @ 29:24

Hey, it’s Tuesday night, and there’s only three days left in the work week! Who else is excited about this?! I am! But for work weeks that last longer than a second, I occasionally order something special for myself and have it delivered to the office so that I have a little treat to look forward to at some point throughout the week. Most days, I don’t need any “swag” to help me get through the day, but every once in a while, I’m having a bad day and a package arrives; if it’s for me, and it happens to be running gear, my frown immediately turns upside down, and I’m feeling better.

Today was a not so bad day, but because of the three-day weekend, I have to admit, I was dreading going into the office a little bit. Knowing that I had ordered some new running socks last week definitely helped with me with getting up and going to work in the morning (I tried to get up early and go running…although I got up earlier, it wasn’t early enough. Still working on that one…). Because our post office, is super slow, though, my socks weren’t waiting for me bright and early this morning, as I expected. However, when 4:00 p.m. rolled around, and I knew that the mail had come, I had a present waiting for me:

I’m going to start this review with (of course!) the price. I was recently named a My Soxy Feet Ambassador, so I’m lucky enough to get a 30% discount on their products—most of them retail at around $12.99. So with the 30% discount mine are under $10. Sorry if this seems like I’m cheating on this $10 Tuesday. But for all of my friends who love socks that rock, be sure to use the coupon code SOXYFRIENDS at checkout and you can enjoy 10% off of your purchase. Not $10, but pretty darn close!

I have to say that I love, love, love this company. I will only act as an ambassador and write positive reviews for businesses and products that I love…and this is one of them. From their website: 

 

Take it off! (Your Socks, I Mean)

Aughhhh! I can’t believe it myself but this is a post about running! Not about clothing that you can but for cheap or a product review, but an actual post about running.

Have I gone for a run lately? Other than sprinting a quarter mile with my dog last week…no. Do I plan to soon? I really hope so! I don’t want to jinx it though, so I won’t elaborate, since I’ve set a time and place to go running and posted on here exactly what day and when I plan on getting started and then, BOOM! My knee starts bothering me again…

…So to celebrate my love of running and my hope to start running again soon, I thought I’d take my socks off and we could all get re-acquainted.

Ten Dollar Tuesday

It’s been a while since I’ve written about running…mainly because I haven’t been doing much of it (if you’re new to this blog, I’m injured and am having some major issues with my IT band). BUT…while I was shopping last year, I came up with an idea of how I could incorporate running in my blog without doing it…and that’s how $10 Tuesday was born!
