Running Sucks! And a Giveaway Winner

What is the perfect shirt to toss on when you're relaxing on the couch after a 17 mile run?

I kid, I kid. Running most definitely does not suck. You know what else doesn't suck? These awesome shirts available from Kiley over at Daily Vitamin F.  She sells every color you can imagine, and they are so reasonably priced--you can't beat $8, can you?

And now...I know you're dying to find out who gets their very own Handful bra! I was shocked to have 250 comments on this one--I guess it was a pretty awesome prize! I plugged all the comments into to get the winner, and it was lucky #187--Nik from Two Yuppies and a Puppy! Congrats Nik!

After a run, what do you toss on?
I'm all about comfy sweats, PJs, and a big baggy shirt, most definitely!

What is a cool running clothing item/accessory/etc. you're dying to have?
I saw this top in the window of the lady foot locker in New Orleans and fell in love--but the store was closed! May have to bite the bullet and grab it online!


  1. OH yea girl, sweats all the way! I am a total sweats girl, love big baggy sweatpants, I usually buy mine in the men's dept so they are extra baggy!

  2. Running does suck! Hahaha- just lately for me because I'm burnt out. I made a tank top before a 1/2 marathon I ran once that said "I hate running" on the front, and on the back, "but so does being lazy and unhealthy." At the end it was all about the front :)

  3. I love those shirts! I need a running sucks & cancer sucks!

  4. Aaaaaaaaah!!!! I am so excited to get my handful bra! Thanks for the giveaway!

  5. Aw, too bad, I know the manager at Lady Foot Locker at the mall here, could've got you a deal ;-) if you buy online look for a coupon code, they almost always have one for footlocker.

  6. I'm definitely a comfy shirt and baggy pants kind of person after a long run- but I add in either compression socks or sleeves underneath.

    As for cool running accessory- I've been coveting the entire Oiselle collection for the last few months. Love their stuff.

  7. Nice shirts! I have a button that says Cancer Sucks on it. I wear it on my remission anniversaries sometimes.

  8. Love the t-shirt!! I also throw on the baggiest clothes I can find after a workout! I need to be super comfy!

    I am dying to have a pair of padded spin shorts right now!! They are SO expensive!

  9. I definitely have days where that shirt would be totally appropriate. You could sell those Running Sucks shirts at mile 23 of a marathon and make a killing!

  10. I'm all about comfy, baggy clothes after a really long run!

  11. That is so funny, I was just driving home and passed somebody who was running and wearing that shirt!

  12. I'm buying that shirt just to wear to boot camp. I always bitch when they make us run!

  13. That's a great shirt! I love catchy running shirts. My favorite one that I own is "Every Damn Day" which makes me feel empowered.

    It's sad, when I'm done running I usually chill in my sports bra and whatever bottoms I'm wearing until my shower or bed... it's gross but I'm usually too lazy. :X

  14. the shirt. way to go on that long run, girl!! :) and of course congrats to our winner. :)

  15. I like the shirts, especially the blue one!

  16. Love your shirt...gotta get one of these for the week after next when I attempt 20 miles!

  17. I love that running sucks tee! Too funny.

    Always comfy pants or shorts and a tank after a run - with a hoodie til I warm-up!

  18. That running top is WAY cute! And I love the running sucks t-shirts. Because lets be honest, everyone has moments in a race or LR where running really does suck! :)

  19. haha, that's the perfect recovery nap/snack fest tshirt :)

  20. Those shirts are great! Only $8, you can't go wrong. And the one you saw in New Orleans is so cute!!!

  21. i LOVE Kiley's shirts. I have a "cancer sucks" one and I wear it all the time. I really need to get a running sucks one!

  22. Running doesn't suck, but some runs DO suck! I can't wait to return to my post long run routine this weekend of ice bath, shower, comfy sweats (ok let's be serious - pjs) and compression socks. And tons of iced coffee. Yum.

  23. I like to put on my pajama pants and an extra large tshirt. comfy. Anywhoo, I am on a working clothing spending strike. I spend too much as it is. I need to work on my other normal clothing wardrobe for a while.

Are You a Salty Sweater? The Truth About Sodium and Running

Before I started running regularly, I did my best to avoid salt. After all, if you want to lose weight you're supposed to reduce sodium, right? Here's what the American Federal Government's recommendations for sodium intake (as of January 2011)

-if you're 51+ years old, black, have hypertension, kidney disease or diabetes, you get 1,500 mg. each day
-if you're a healthy adult, you get 2,300 mg. per day. A teaspoon. 

Now most of the time, I don't have an issue with this. Salt isn't used too much in my cooking, and I avoid a lot of common processed foods filled with sodium. When I do indulge in a salty meal, usually from a restaurant, I get the associated water weight gain and bloating. So I'm happy to stick to my meeting my 2,300 mg. requirements each day.

And then...summer arrives. If you're running in high humidity, you sweat. A lot. It's not pretty, and you're draining your body of electrolytes like sodium. On my long runs, I take precauti…

DIY Treadmill Desk

Working from home has its perks. Sure, my social interaction skills are deteriorating rapidly and casual dress Fridays now include those old ratty boxers and that one race shirt with the hole, but I also get to enjoy things like eating lunch at 10:30 because I feel like it and deciding where I want to work. Like on the treadmill.

Between working at my desk all day, using my computer for fun and then sitting on the couch watching television most nights for an hour or two, it's safe to say I sit on my ass a lot. And yep, that's not so great for you. Even though I work out 6 days a week, I hate that I spend easily 75% of my waking hours sitting.

On a whim, I asked Tim if he could build me a treadmill desk. I've seen these massive contraptions to make treadmill desks, but they basically transform it into a full-time desk, and I still want to use my treadmill for running (sans desk) as well. Magic carpenter man took a few measurements and brought me in a prototype by lunchtime.…

I Wanna Play! My 7 Links

I've been loving the "7 Links" Posts circulating the blogging world lately, so when I was tagged by Holly at Rust Belt Runner I couldn't wait to participate. Without further ado, here are my Seven Links...

Most Popular Post: Aside from giveaways (and we know why those are popular), one of my most read and commented on post was about my Weight Loss Journey. It got so much attention, it deserved it's own little tab at the top of my page!

Most Controversial Post: My post Good Person > Good Racer was possibly the most controversial. I talked about my own experience racing with my husband, and whether or not it is racer etiquette (or just plain rude) to pass someone when you planned on running together. Lots of differing options in this area!

Most Helpful Post: One of my earlier posts was titled What's Worth It, and recapped some running extras and whether or not they're beneficial. I go so much great feedback on products like foam rollers, compression sock…
