Marathon Training Week 16 - Day 2
The past week has been bad for workouts. Today we finally did a good three miles. Lots of sweat. Lots of chatting to catch up on. We did two slower miles so we could hold a conversation and then pushed the last mile; ending with a good long sprint.
|Randee was only half bitchy this morning. I guess a week off helped improve her bad attitude!|
|Why yes, those are my love handles I'm holding on to. Thanks for noticing.|
I have a TON of stuff to catch all my closest blog friends up on. A couple of teasers...
1. My son fractured his femur. Orthopedic appointment this afternoon. Just so you know, the femur is supposedly the hardest bone in the body to break. My little over achiever!
2. I had a great time in Park City, Utah. Don't you worry, I have plenty of pics to share in an upcoming post.
3. We have a new member in our family. A 17 year old Italian exchange student named Alessandra.
Today I'm focusing my attention on something super exciting! Another giveaway! Whoot!
I first discovered Chica Band
s at the Cowtown Marathon Expo, back in February.
|They had tons of different styles, and I spent forever trying to decide which bands to purchase.|
|In the end I selected these three bands.|
|I was rocking the Turquoise Zebra Chica Band during the race.|
I love these bands. They stay in place. They don't slip, and they help to keep my hair and the pouring sweat out of my eyes when running.
|I even wore my Lime and Pink Zen Chica Band while doing plumbing. I wonder which band goes best with plumber's crack?|
Meg over at Chica Band
s was wonderful enough to send Randee and me a few Chica Bands, in different widths to try out.
|I had a hard time sharing with Randee when these four adorable bands arrived in the mail.|
|I did begrudgingly give Randee the Hot Pink Camo Chica Band.|
Randee had worn a different brand of band in the past, but had never tried a Chica Band
. She said the Chica Bands were super comfortable and she loved the designs. With her small frame she prefers the thinner bands, but loves the look of the thick bands.
|I'm totally diggin' my Glittery Skinny Mermaid Chica Band.|
I don't think I would have ever picked this glittery band on my own, but I wear it all the time! The thick bands work great on days when you want hair no where near your face!
|The Flower Child Grande Chica Band looks fabulous on Randee.|
|I may never brush my hair again! I put on a little makeup and earrings and dressed up the Coral Tattoo Chica Band.|
