It’s Been a Big Week!!

27 Mar


So, I finally got back into the gym AND the Hot Room this week and it feels good!! And, though it makes me sad, and muddy, the snow is almost all gone so I guess Spring really is here. On top of all that, I’ve started playing around with some changes on the blog here so we’ll see how that goes!!

2 weeks from now I’ll be in Paris, panicking about…er getting ready for the Paris Marathon so lots of excitement around here – though sometimes it’s hard to tell…


I will never get tired of this picture!!

On top of my Paris trip planning (scheduled a cooking class and a champagne tour!) I also started on my insulin pump this week. I’ve had it for 2 weeks and have been using the Continuous Glucose Monitor on it’s own while pumping saline in place of insulin. Wednesday I filled my cartridge with insulin so it is ON! I definitely like the convenience and there will be more on this coming up…

I also got some exciting mail deliveries this week! Who doesn’t love great mail?!

Gotta Sparkle during the Paris Breakfast Run the morning before the marathon, right?!


For the Breakfast Run the morning before the Paris Marathon!

And since I’m travelling with my oldest friend in the world, Fellow Flowers to celebrate our Fiercely United relationship!


The last time Eydie and I ran together was probably 7th grade PE…it was an excruciating hour long mile!!


And the other great news? Maybe you notice a new badge in the sidebar – That’s right!


I’ve been selected as a Skirt Sports Ambassador! When I first started wearing skirts to run, Skirt Sports was the skirt I wore! And I remember VERY well the days when I was the only person on the course wearing a skirt!

Me, rockin’ the 2004 NYC Marathon in a TRIKS – an original Gym Girl from Skirt Sports!! ps – I got a NYC PR here…was it the skirt?


Of course, now that’s all changed. I wear a few different brands of skirts, but the original is still my favorite “all-in-one” skirt (that means it has panties or shorts under!) I can’t wait to share all of the fun with you. And hey, why not start off with a little gift…from me to you 🙂 That’s right. A discount code! I Know we love our discount codes right?!! When you order from Skirt Sports, use this code — SSORF20 — for 20% off of your order. And you know what else is pretty neat about that code? You can use it to participate in any of the Skirt Sports Virtual runs!

I was just over there grabbing some great new things and lots of goodies on sale!! Good thing I start my job soon!

So wishing you all a wonderful weekend!! Get out there and get it!!
