Just the Tip–Discounts and Deals on Running Stuff

Happy Tuesday!

This morning I tried to do speed run and I’ll give myself an “E” for effort. I did 4 400s, 2 800s and one 1600 but they were all around the same pace, which isn’t great but on the bright side – at least I’m consistent. That is the one thing I have going for me. The one thing.

    I’d highly recommend the Cross Fit ID. I was lucky enough to win your recent competition, and the customer service was fab from them: they shipped it to me in Scotland!
    I really, really like it: it’s comfortable, fits well and makes me feel much safer.
    Everyone should have one!

    i’m so excited for all things pumpkin, but i haven’t really started craving it yet since it’s in the 80’s at the moment…

    “get weird.” <— random, but that reminds me of my friends who bought "let's get weird" mugs. love the watermelon/tequila idea, though! :)

    Do you run a few or maybe just 1-2 miles as a warm up before your intervals? I like to have at least 3-5km on my legs before my sessions but I wonder if that’s too much and tires me out for the actual workout.

    Love me some discount codes! The one I used recently wasn’t really a discount but because I signed up for an account on the Brooks website, they sent me a “Happy Un-birthday” email to get free shipping on a purchase over $75 plus a free tech tee. I needed new PureFlow’s anyway, so I got them with free shipping AND the shirt!

    so i may or may not have gotten crazy in my college days and done some vodka watermelons for parties, but I am LOVING your margarita idea! is it sad that i almost feel like that seems classy?

    Wooo! Got myself a snazzy ID bracelet. Great idea to have even if you’re out running by yourself. Thanks for the discount :)
