Happy Runiversary to Me!!!

8/25/12.

That date is one of the most important dates in my life so far. It was the day I began running, or well taking it seriously. I can remember that day too. It felt like the worst run of my life. Miguel convinced me to run his parents neighborhood WITH HIM. I couldn't even keep up with his speed if I had been on roller blades... I think I may or may not have given him the finger as he was running ahead telling me to keep pushing it....(I thought "keep pushing it?! You push it where the sun don't shine bro...") 
Once I was done...and caught my breath, I was hooked.

Not only is August the 1 year anniversary of me beginning the life changing choice of running but it's also my birthday, Miguel's birthday and our 8 year anniversary, so to say that the month of August is about celebration is an understatement!

I want you all to celebrate with me too becuase so many of you have impacted my life in ways I couldn't even have dreamed! So I have talked to some amazing companies (my favorites) and they have agreed to donate products that have been an important part of my life the last year! Armpocket, Bulu Box, Sweaty Bands, KT Tape, The Sox Box, have all donated fabulous goodies for you



Armpocket is donating an Armpocket of your choice (style and color).


Bulu Box is giving the winner a box filled with goodies and a shaker bottle!


Sweaty Bands has agreed to give one of their bands. Seeing as how this is the MOST Disney-esk I think it is perfect. It is called the Lil' Bow Peep!


KT Tape is giving you the option of any color you'd like in the PRO Tape style.


The Sox Box has offered to giveaway any sock you desire (in stock). They are awesome by the way! Here are a couple of my favorites.


Power Ice will be giving a 6 pack of their electrolyte replacing ice bars, you choose the flavor. (Orange Blast is my personal favorite!)


Thank you all for celebrating with me!

  4. Happy Runiversary Meg!!! You have been so inspirational to me, I think your PHM recap was one of the first I found and read. I'm so happy for you, and so glad that I found you! I can't wait to meet you and wish you could bring Aceface to the PHM so I could give him a big slobbery kiss. LOL. The socks are adorable, if I won I would be most excited about those.

    1. Thank you! You are so incredibly sweet. :) I can't wait to meet you too!!!! I did try to get Miguel to get Ace a Service Dog In Training Vest...but he is nowhere near evening getting away with the 'in training' part. It would only hurt the industry. He does not need anymore training however when it comes to kisses hahah.

      Aren't the socks awesome!!
