I know….I am SO far behind.


And honestly – I have no legitimate excuse. Unless “lazy” qualifies. But, as I always say “new month, new leaf”! Or…I’m saying it now 🙂

So this week prepare to be inundated with knowledge – or….just tales of my travels and races and jobs and plans and how that whole insulin pump thing is working for me….maybe some Phred in there…


This is the Mister on his 10th birthday — handsome as ever!

I’ve got a report on my Giveaway from last month – Spoiler  Bethany Patel will be enjoying her 13er finisher’s skirt and 50 dollar gift certificate to spend at SkirtSports  And,  it’s not too late to get in on the action — just head over to the events tab at SkirtSports and sign up! Though, you are a little too late to get the finishers skirt with artwork, you’ll still get the same awesome skirt. And that 50 dollar gift certificate!  And don’t forget, you can use my discount code while you’re there — SSORF20 – that’ll give you 10% off and who can argue with that?

Anyway, you should probably set aside time to do some reading (hey, I ran the marathon in Paris and it was fun…so you get to FINALLY hear about it!!)


So, I did actually *physically* finish…

Can’t wait to finally really get back on the ball. And hey, you gotta bet that training for another marathon is gonna start off really soon and you all know how much fun that will be!!!

Take care and have a GREAT weekend!!!

Time for a Giveaway!!!

13 May

One of the perks I get being a SkirtSports Ambassador is the opportunity to share my love of the skirt with you! AND…one way to do that is giving away the chance to participate in the SkirtSports 13er.


What’s the 13er you ask? Well, let me tell you! It’s a half marathon…but it’s not half of anything!! There’s a real-live, in-person event in GORGEOUS Louisville, Colorado on June 14 – that’s next month!. If you’re not up for the full 13er (see what I did there?!) you can sign up for a 5K or a 10K too. And, if, like me, you can’t make it out to Colorado next month, there’s also a VIRTUAL option. Now, here’s the great part! If you sign up for the virtual event you still get all the perks. Well, except for the cake at the finish…but I bet you could find yourself some cake!!

What Perks? Well…this is not your average event so there are better than ever perks! All entrants – virtual and live – will get a SkirtSports branded finishers skirt! WHAT!??! Yes. You also get a gift certificate to spend on some more awesome SkirtGear – and psst…you can also use my blogger code with that gift certificate to really get a lot of bang…er, skirt…for your buck!! Look at the bottom of this post for your code. 

So, enter the rafflecopter giveaway but clicking this link:


You can enter once a day and the contest will end next Tuesday, May 20 at 12 am (eastern time) and I will notify the winner by Wed afternoon! By participating, you are agreeing to share your email with me as well as Skirt Sports. If for some crazy reason you don’t want to enter the giveaway, you can register here. And ya know what? That code I mentioned above? You can use that for 20% off of your entry!! Hurry up though, because prices will go up on Sunday!

Now, you know there’s gonna be some fine print, right?


This is where I tell you that I am a Skirt Sports ambassador captain. That means that the company has given me some free gear to review and sometimes provides additional things like give-aways and free race entries. I, too, will get a 13er race entry. So I’ll be running with you on the 14th!!


Oh yeah…that discount code 🙂 Here it is — remember, it’s good for 20% off of any SkirtSports gear AND Virtual races!! SSORF20 And, if you’re local to CO, or planning to run the 13er in person, shoot me a comment and I’ll let you in on another little secret!
