Half Marathon Prep & a Giveaway for Lunatiks!

Hey, let's get all crazy and talk about running over here!

I realized looking back at the last few weeks that I've been sort of stuck on food & yoga.  (not that there's anything wrong with that)  Yes, I've been running too!

I've been training for the Presque Isle Half Marathon which will happen once again on Sunday.  It's shaping up to be another hot one which is nothing less than what I would expect in a race in mid-July.  It might be 90 degrees.  Who thought this was a good idea?

Last year, the weather was VERY rainy.  I actually got a PR mostly because the last 2 miles were in a torrential downpour.  My only thought was "I want to be done".

Training this year has gone fine. Not great- just fine.  The truth is, I sort of kept thinking that the race was a long way off and now here we are.  I did all my long runs and most of the shorter ones.  I even did a little bit of speed work thanks to my friend Heather and her marathon training.

I am not expecting to PR this weekend.  But, I'm looking forward to running my favorite distance yet again.  I'm actually signed up for half marathons in July, August and September.  My goal is to finish them all injury-free.

My friends at Lunatik Athletiks sent me this cute little running skirt and compression calf sleeves.  
I'm in love with them both.

I've been sporting the skirt for runs and I'm pretty sure I'll wear it this Sunday for the race.  
I even toss a t-shirt into the car and wear the skirt to the grocery store post-run.

Look- it matches my Her Times 5K t-shirt!

The calf sleeves have been amazing for recovery from long runs.  Yes, my family laughs at me when I wear them.  There may have been some comment that I look like a character in a Dr. Seuss book, but I don't care!  I love these things!

They feel so good on my tired legs.

Here's the exciting news... the wonderful people at Lunatik Athletics are going to give one of you a skirt & sleeves!  Yaay!
