It’s Friday, so I’m linking up with Courtney at Eat, Pray, Run DC, Cynthia at You Signed Up for What and Mar at Mar on the Run. Each week they pick a theme and bloggers join in and link up. This year instead of specific themes, they’re letting us be creative with broad themes for each week of the month. This is a “free” week.…

I Need a “Should-less” Day (or Two)

September 18, 2016 at 8:47 am

September is a crazy busy month for me. My work requires a bunch of travel in September. Plus, this year we had two weddings and I have a conference (for fun). I’ve been out of town more nights than I’ve been home. By the 30th, I’ll be away more than half the month. I’ve been pretty stressed and overwhelmed. The good news is that the…

I met the folks at Vital Proteins at the Chicago Rock N Roll Half Marathon Expo. They offered me a taste of collagen peptide enhanced water. It didn’t have a taste but it is packed with nutrition. That’s a win! Vital Proteins is a Chicago based company. I was invited to an event where they showcased their products and offered us a variety of collagen…

Some days, it occurs to me that I’m not getting any younger. I’ve been extremely excited to have very few running related aches and pains lately.

It’s really cool to see small companies grow and thrive. Stacy and I went to Cleveland to run Kim’s first post partum half marathon in 2011 and were introduced to Good Greens bars. At the time, they had six flavors. Since then, they’ve added non-dairy yogurt flavors and offer twelve thirteen varieties. They sent me a box of 12 plus and awesome t-shirt. Good news!…

It may be hard to believe but I still have more goodies from Expo West to share. Finds’ friend Stacy found Curate Snacks on a trip to California this winter and asked me if I had seen them. I hadn’t. I saw them at Expo West and chatted with the team. They offered me a bunch of flavors to try. I tried a few and…
