Get Your Run On Giveaway Hop

I love Runaway Bridal Planner’s health and fitness blogger giveaway bloghops. Now, she is hosting “Get Your Run On.” I am getting my run on a lot while training for NYC, so this is another perfect fit for me!

I kicked off my training for my 15th NYC Marathon and I received a welcome little boost. Coeur Sports sent me their cute Fleet Foxes Run Shorts and matching tank. It came at the perfect moment. On Saturday, I returned from a tough 12.5 mile run at Waterfall Glen (legs like rubber) to a parcel. I ripped it open and tried it on right away. It looked so cute, and was so comfortable, that I almost wanted to go running again. Coeur…
