WorkIt Wednesday : Last Training Update!

Hello Neighbors,

How is everyone doing this evening?  I am trying to get in some packing, but wanted to take a minute to share about our training this week.

SGMA Hall of Fame 5K

Sponsors :
  • BottleBand
  • TrailHeads
  • FitSok
  • Modest Poppy
  • Ozeri
  • Words to Sweat By
  • BolderBands
  • FlipBelt
  • runninGluv
  • MaxFlowSports
  • LaceLockers

Bottle Band is a band that basically turns any bottle into a handheld - great for when running!  We have used this several time during training and it definitely helps having something to hold unto other than the bottle.  I am soo glad that I'll have mine for the 5K.  

TrailHeads sent me a running cap that will be great for the 5K.  My older sister has tried stealing this one, just because of how light and breathable it is.  The white looks great with anything, and helps shade your face from sun or rain!

Sorry for the sweaty pic!  :)

FitSok has seriously become one of my favorite brand of socks. I LOVE the F4 tech socks and the comfort they give, while my sisters like the CF2 JewelPop socks (I think they like the Pop of Color!).  If you are looking for a new pair of socks for running (or any other sport), check out FitSok!
  

This is my favorite skirt/outfit now for sports of any kind.  My only wish is that it was a little bit longer.  It doesn't look bad, just personal preference.  My sisters have both tried buying this off of me.  I love that the leggings are attached to the skirt.  No more having to search for the right length!


As you all know, the Ozeri Pedometer has really helped me track my steps, mileage, etc.  I like that the buttons are big and easy to press, and the belt clip has been GREAT!  



The 5K + Tread Necklace that Words to Sweat By sent me has been quite a motivational product (as well as all the compliments!).  :)  If you know of anyone participating in a race, purchase one of these to help motivate!


I received a BolderBands Headband for review, and as you can tell, my sister really likes it.  She has used it several mornings during training and loves how wide it is.  She said it is the only headband that she can wear without it feeling like it is falling off, or pulling her hair out. 




I received two runninGluvs for review.  I have been using one for training every day, and yep, you guessed it, my sister took the other one!  It has really helped to be able to just reach up and wipe the sweat away, instead of having to slow down and use a sleeve or tissue.  When we were running yesterday I forgot to bring it, and I kept swiping my hand across my face, because I have used this so much.


My sister loves the MaxFlow Sports Athletic Socks we received.  She has decided that those are hers, and she wears them all the time for training.  My dad asked if athletic/sports socks were really made any different than regular socks.  Yes, they are, and they help more than you can imagine!


LaceLockers sent me a pair of their Ladybug LaceLockers.  These are REALLY helpful when running or doing other physical activities (such as volleyball, racquetball, tennis, basketball, etc.)  where your shoes might come un-tied.  No more loose laces!!



This weekend we leave for Pigeon Forge, so I will not be posting a training update.  The race is on the 27th, so I'll probably let you all know the results on WorkIt Wednesday - Oct. 1st.  Be sure to check back for any updates about our trip!

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
