WorkIt Wednesday : 5K Training Update... On Thursday!

Hello Neighbors,

SGMA Hall of Fame 5K

How is everyone doing this afternoon?  Sorry this didn't go up yesterday like it was supposed to.  We ran some errands it it just slipped through.  Let's get started!

Sponsors :

  • FlipBelt
  • runninGluv
  • FitSok
  • LaceLockers
  • BolderBands
  • Words to Sweat By
  • Ozeri
  • MaxFlow Sports
  • TrailHeads
  • Modest Poppy
  • Bottle Band

First up is MaxFlow Sports.  I have used their headbands a couple times, and although it is a little tight for me (I don't know, maybe I have a big head!), my sister loves it.  And these low show performance socks are GREAT!  

Second up is the Sports/Swim Skirt with Leggings from Modest Poppy.  This skirt is GREAT!  I was previously wearing a pair of denim culottes, and as you can imagine, the difference in weight was pretty big.  The first time I tried on the skirt I was amazed at how lightweight it was.  

BolderBand sent me two headbands (one for me, and one to giveaway!).  My sisters have fought over who was going to wear this headband.  It is very comfortable and is great for on cooler mornings, because you can pull it over your ears.  

Another product we have used quite a bit is the FlipBelt.  You might be conscious of it at first, but after a while you just forget about it.  The one day after running I totally forgot to take it off!  My little sister is begging to be allowed to use it at the race to keep the phone and other necessities in.  

Fitsok sent me two packs of socks (three pair each).  The F4 TECH SOCK 3PK (which are my personal favorites) and the CF2 JEWELPOP CUSH LOW 3PK (which my sisters are "sharing").  I love the cushioned tabs in the front and back of the 54 Tech Socks which help prevent blisters and chafing.  

TrailHeads sent me their TrailHeads Goodbye Girl Ponytail Running Cap - white / white trim.  This has come in handy on sunny days (to help keep the sun out of my eyes) and even on drizzly days (like this morning, to keep the rain out of my eyes).  I LOVE the wicking fabric used for these caps.  

Okay, so how many times have you been out running and you have to stop and wipe the sweat out of your eyes, or carry a tissue when your nose is running?  It has been a problem for us before.  That is, until... runninGluv!  I received a Black LUVs Pink with Pink Stitch.  And guess what, it solved the issue!

Okay, this one is more of a motivational product.  We all have those moments when we feel like we can't do it anymore, or think "Is it really worth it?".  Words to Sweat By sells all sorts of motivational products.  Do you know someone that is participating in a 5K?  Purchase a Running Necklace: Tread + Race Distance for them!

BottleBand sent me their Purple Run Like a Girl BottleBand.  Their motto?  Any Bottle. Any Time.  It is basically a band that you can use to make just about any bottle a handheld.  Just what I need for the 5K!  We tried it out this morning and it works GREAT!

The last one for this week is from a company called LaceLockers (so your laces are never loose again!).  I have the LadyBug LaceLockers and it works great.  I have had a couple times where I have had to stop and re-tie my shoes.  Not anymore!

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.

10 Things You Need To Do Before Moving Abroad

From There is nothing more fulfilling than travelling the world and visiting new and exciting places. If you’re a fan of travel , then you might have thought about moving abroad at some point. Unfortunately, there is a lot to do before you can get on the plane, with finding accommodations and a job being the most important. If you’re moving abroad soon, or think that it’s something that you’d like to do in the future, then here are ten things that you need to do before you start your new life. 1. Visit The Country Plenty of people move abroad without visiting the country first. Although this is fine to do, as long as you’ve done plenty of research on the country, it makes much more sense to visit the country first. This way you can get used to the culture, and will know in advance whether or not the country is somewhere that you’d actually like to live. 2. Research The Country You need to do lots of research before you move abroad, especially if you haven’t visited the count
