Gone For A Run...Makes Coffee Taste Better

As an Ambassador for Gone For A Run, I get the opportunity to review a few of their great products each month .

What is Gone For A Run? It is an awesome company that sells amazing gifts for runners! They have medal hangers, running jewelry, running clothes, running gear, decals, stickers, magnets, home decor, and drinkware. Pretty much anything a runner would want or imagine....Gone For A Run has it!

This month I was sent a very nice Mug to add to my growing collection!

How awesome is the breakdown of a half marathon, it sounds pretty cool to tell someone "I just ran 69,168 feet!".  I love how the design wrapped all around the mug, and it wasn't to heavy and fit easily into my dishwasher. I've washed it about six times and it still looks brand new and not dull. 

Mothers Day is just around the corner and If you have a Running Lady in your life.....Gone For A Run has a huge variety of items she will love!

Fitness Friday- "Racecation"

Happy Friday Folks!
This post is a special one not only will I be running my 3rd half marathon tomorrow, but it happens to be in my hometown of Tuscaloosa, Alabama. The race is the 2nd Annual Tuscaloosa Half "Celebrating the Past, Present, and Future of Tuscaloosa" since the horrible destruction of the April 15th tornado in 2011. At the time my family and I were still living in the area and witnessed first hand the impact of the tragedy. It took a lot from our community, but thanks to so many it has made our city even better. 

The great people behind the race have out done themselves by putting together a high speed video of the course. It seems a lot longer than 13.1 miles and showcases so much rebuilding in the area. I can't wait to run it and hopefully will run into my friend Cindy from "Newlywed Nutrition".

I read a lot about runners taking "Racecations" (destination race vacations) and hope to someday travel to California or Colorado for a race trip. For now Lola bug and I have packed our bags, foam roller, and gear to travel 4 hours to my see my family. We are going to be staying on parents farm which is sure to be a great time.

I can't wait to share with you guys the whole experiences and results.....Follow me on Instagram to see all the fun first.

Have you ever been on a "Racecation"?

All you need is Love and Running

Like most girls I love when the wonderful folks from Gone For A Run asked me to review a product from their huge assortment of running gifts, apparel, and goodies of course I choose a cute top. 

I'm not a fashion guru by any means so I won't bore you with a ton of pictures of me trying to look! On a typical day when I'm not at the gym or running, you can find me wearing my favorite AE jeans and comfy tops. 

This Scoop Neck Tee is a great addition to my closet. Not only is it comfy and warm, but has a cute saying that every runner will love. I really like the vintage black color since I tend to wear a lot of black. 

If catchy tees are not your thing but you love your state. The folks at Gone For A Run have just released a whole collection of State related gifts and gear. Right now they are offering 10% OFF with code: STATERUN

Check out Gone For A Run and let me know what catches your eye.
