Win A Bondi Band from This Girl!

Hello everyone! Any chance you're missing this pretty lady in your lives lately?

Christina (you might know her as the Athletarian) made a big bloggy switch over to a self-hosted site. Don't ask me how to do it, if I can check my own emails I call it a good day. Anyway, it seems like lots of people are missing out on her newest posts. Which is a problem, because you're all missing her amazing giveaway

If you want a pretty amazing BondiBand, head over there now for a chance to enter the giveaway, and while you're there switch your feeds over to her new address. Girl has TONS of giveaways so you'll be missing out otherwise!

*Please note* Bondi Band, while it makes you look hardcore, will not make you run faster on the track OR be able to jump higher. Bummer. 

Ok, blog rant time: what drives you crazy about blogging/technology?
Um, how about that I never know how to get it to work? Honestly, I can paste pictures and type. The end. Also, if someone would like to teach me to use my Garmin, that would be great, thanks. Apparently there are all these cool things it can do--besides start and stop?


  1. I'll have to check out her site. Yea, I'm totally not tech-savvy so don't ask me! When I taught Jr. High a few years ago, my students had to teach me how to text message ...sad but true :)

  2. You crack me up! ANY technology questions PLEASE ask! I can try my best to help out:) And I don't think I've have any issues with Christina's feed, but I'll double check it now that you've mentioned it!

  3. hahahah i love you, so cute. you always have the greatest jumping pictures. you get such great height, love it!! i love love bondi bands. oh gosh techbnology and i don't mix. today i was on my new treadmill and i plugged in the ipod to the treadmill and it started working and then stopped, i fixed it and it did it again. i was like you have got to be kidding me!!! seriously?!?! oh well, thats why we have husbands right? lol

  4. My Garmin, I only ever used start & stop too .... I sold it on ebay :-)

  5. Thanks for the info! I will check out her blog.

  6. hahaha i feel you on the Garmin thing! It is seriously a glorified stop watch for me right now!!


  7. Hi there.)

    Oh, you ve got such a cute blog!! I love it!
    Nice post.))

    I need your help (maybe again) ...
    I spend new survey ..
    Have you watched the MTV awards prizes?
    if yes whether you agree with all the awards, or something you think was unfair?

  8. Haha I am lucky my boyfriend got his degree in Computer Info. Systems or else I would be pretty screwed!

  9. When I started my blog, I considered Wordpress, but then I realized I had no fucking clue how to work it, so here I am using the idiot's blog, aka Blogger.

    I hate comments in Blogger, especially since I can't respond to most of them.

  10. Love it! Basically every thing about technology in general drives me crazy. I am not tech savy at all and it seriously stresses me out!

  11. I am so with you. I hate techology. I just do the bare miminal with my garmin and blogger. Nothing fancy from me.

  12. I'm glad I found her through you. I "liked" both your pages on Facebook! :) I'm a big fan of those headbands. Maybe it's because I'm a big sweater.

    Have you done any halves or fulls since Scenic City??

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…
