Let's start the weekend off right- with a giveaway :-)
Last week, this blog reached a pretty neat milestone- 10,000 views! Wow! Never in my wildest dreams did I think my little corner of the internet would be viewed 10,000 times. Thank you for reading this blog and sharing this journey with me.
It's my personal belief that all milestones should be celebrated. For every "first" race/longest distance I've completed, there's always been a celebration to mark the occasion. No matter where your fitness or running level is, setting goals and accomplishing them should be marked with fanfare.
So, let's celebrate our accomplishments together!
Larry Herman, fellow runner and owner of RUNtelligence, has graciously donated a shirt to give away to my readers in honor of this blog's milestone! You might remember that I first found out about RUNtelligence at the Chambersburg Half Marathon where I picked up an awesome shirt for the Shamrock Half Marathon.
|This shirt brought me lots of compliments and luck! I PR'd the half wearing it :-)|
From the RUNtelligence facebook page:
"Don't just run...wear what you're thinking! You aren't boring and blank. Why is your shirt? These are high quality, moisture-wicking' technical fiber, cotton-feel, snarky-saying shirts that you will love wearing and running in. You're better...dress like it. RUNtelligence."
Not only are RUNtelligence shirts clever, they are also a dream to run in. They function like a traditional tech shirt but feel softer- like a cotton shirt. It wicked the sweat away and felt super comfortable at the same time. I've already ordered two more for the Pittsburgh Half Marathon weekend where I'll be running the 5k and the half.
|My favorite is "This seems like a lot of work for a free banana."|
DISCOUNT CODE FOR SPARKLYRUNNER READERS:
Larry (because he's awesome!) has also given all of my readers a code for 15% off your order until midnight on April 30th. Just enter "sparklyrunner" at checkout to get the discount.

I don't know if its a milestone, really, but it sure is a victory... I planned to run at lunch during our nice days last week.....AND I DID! It was a short run, but I did it. I could have easily not "had enough time," but I made time. :)ReplyDelete
Look. At. You! So proud of you! I'm nowhere near the bad-ass level you are to run during lunch- I like to eat :-) Way to go, Jen!Delete
10,000 views?!?!?! That is amazing! You go girl! So glad I was able to run into you last weekend! Still feeling the runners high of completing my first 10K! This might be my new favorite distance! Felt much better than a half :)ReplyDelete
Oh I agree 1,000%! Long enough for a challenge, but not long enough to totally wipe you out. Great job last week! :-)Delete
