national running day

Glad to see that my video didn't scare you guys off. So now you know that I'm a total dork. We need to be honest with each other here.

Did you know that today, June 1, is National Running Day? Yeah. A whole day devoted to running. How awesome is that? I'm a big advocate of incorporating cardio into your everyday routine. Be it walking or running, swimming or cycling, it's important.

When I did my month of Pure Barre, I was definitely slacking on my cardio to get the most out of what I paid for. But now that's done, and I'm slowly getting back into my routine.

Today, I registered for the Providence Rock 'n' Roll Half Marathon in August. It's going to be hot. It's going to be sweaty. It's going to be hard. But it's going to be fun. And it's going to be worth it. I think it's a good way for me to start challenging myself physically, and to continue with my new year's resolution to lead a healthier life. So, off I go into the world of half marathons.

So this isn't entirely me talking about running, here's some fun gear I'm currently lusting after:
nike free + 2 - already own them!
compression running socks - yes, please.
fun- colored running shorts - necessary.

running tank - ventilation to the max!
hand-held water bottle - hydration is key.
watch to time miles - matches my sneaks: )
I'm on the hunt for a good armband for my iPod nano (the longer kind...not the square one). If you've got any good suggestions, let me know! Mine is...a mess. I cut the plastic off of it because my touch wheel wouldn't work underneath it. So...yeah. Help a sistah out.

And if you're thinking of running any of the Rock 'n' Roll marathons, you can save some money if you sign up today! Depending on what kind of race you run, you'll save the mileage amount! The deal ends tonight at midnight (Pacific time!).

  1. Oh my gosh! I didn't know it was national running day! And I'm actually in my running gear, looking at pretty blogs before I go for a job! So ironic. Glad I stumbled upon yours :)

    PS: I'd love to share a giveaway I'm hosting - it's a little fashionable, a $50 gift card to a lovely etsy shop. They have some great silk flowers, if you'd like to see...

  5. I love that watch! I have a Garmin - much more bulkier and not as cute. Dang, maybe I'll start sporting this one!

    Also, Nike makes fab armbands. I use one for my longer nano as well (the mini long nano). I think it's the same one you're talking about....
