Flex It Pink – Virtual Run Series + More

Flex It Pink gave me a free entry to their 2015 Summer SoleMate Virtual Fun Run.

I’ve had a tough time staying on track with running this summer. Between the heat, having the kids at home, traveling, and a general lack of motivation, it’s just not happening for me right now. I’ve stayed very active with the kids and have walked a ton, but I just haven’t been running.

I’m participating in a virtual run this week, and I’m hoping it can help me get my groove back. It’s being hosted by a company called Flex It Pink, which was created by two moms with a passion for health and fitness. Their mission is to create a community that supports, encourages, educates, and empowers women in their healthy lifestyle and fitness journey. And one of the ways that they do this is by hosting five virtual 5K runs each year.

I’m participating in the 2015 Summer SoleMate Virtual Fun Run, which benefits Wounded Warrior Project. I received my race packet in the mail, and it included this t-shirt:

“Goals are obtained not by strength but by perseverance.”

and this excellent piece of bling:

plus a race bib and some other fun swag.

To learn more about upcoming virtual runs, visit www.flexitpink.com. You’ll also find healthy recipes, workout info, and a supportive community! You can also find Flex It Pink on Facebook, where they host an online fitness group.

Check it out and let me know what you think!

Hey, Strangers!

Long time no talk! I’m stuck at the airport for a 9 hour layover after missing my connection on a 12 hour international flight. You could say it’s been a long day. But I’ve just been on the most beautiful and spiritual adventure, and I’m trying to … [Continue reading]

Our Visit to Stowe and Burlington, Vermont

It's crazy how things work out sometimes. Last year, my cousin Lisa got engaged and started planning a June 2015 wedding in Stowe, Vermont. My husband and I wanted to attend, but there were some obstacles - expenses, schedules, and what on earth … [Continue reading]

Faces + Places

I have a lot going on. I say that a lot, apparently. At least according to my mom and sister, who snicker whenever I say it. I guess it's my go-to "I'm busy so leave me alone" excuse. Seriously, though. It's been a busy couple of weeks. … [Continue reading]

A Rudderless Runner

The Stomach Bug Chronicles

It's been over a week since my last post, mostly because we've been passing a stomach bug around the house. I've pretty much been sick, recovering from being sick, or taking care of sick people for the last 10 days or so. I guess time flies when … [Continue reading]

Wordful Wednesday (and a Bonus Giveaway) (closed)

Because wordless isn't really my thing. Plus I'm sick (blech) and now seems like a good time to play computer catch-up, and I need words for that. I've got a bit of a double whammy here - I caught a cold from one daughter and a touch of a … [Continue reading]

Why I Blog for Free: An Update

About a year ago, a post came across my Facebook feed that really chapped my hide. A fellow blogger was admonishing the rest of us to "stop working for free." She essentially said that bloggers who work for free are ruining the industry. And she … [Continue reading]

Strawberry Soy Smoothie with Silk Soymilk

Thank you to Silk Soymilk for sponsoring today's conversation.  As a general rule, I'm not a big fan of my kids' pre-bedtime ritual. Giving baths, combing tangled hair, arguing about vitamins/pajamas/toothpaste/current events - just not my thing. … [Continue reading]
