Road ID Giveaway Winner!

Thanks to everyone who entered my Road ID giveaway! I was so happy with all the entries. So important to keep safety in mind during our runs--and as some people pointed out--ALL the time, not just while running! I had on my Road ID during my long run on Saturday and got some great responses from my running group. One of the guys actually took a tumble and turned out to be ok...but he had his Road ID on anyway, just in case.

There were 199 entries, which got plugged into

Comment #51 belongs to none other than The Almost Runner! Here was her comment:

P.S. There's no going back on mantras for the Road ID. You have a legal obligation to get "Try not to die" on yours. Hope that's ok? If you don't read Stephanie's blog, you must! Girl is hysterical. I dare you not to laugh while reading ANY of her posts! 

Because I'm ridiculously, ridiculously good looking nice, there will be another giveaway in the next day or two. I'm just in such a good mood having the family here that I think you guys deserve a pick me up too.

Can you think of something funny to put on a Road ID? Kari has one saying, "That's what she said."-can you top that?
I might get another one to wear on my marathon....something along the lines of "If Oprah could do it..."


  1. ha ha love that mantra. Congrats to Stephanie!

  2. I think she needed this after her post today! hahahaha!

  3. Hahaha. Omg steph is awesome! She MUST get that on her ID! I am so not creative funny...maybe I should just put something like "just give me chocolate" I am sure I would be healed in 2 seconds ;)

  4. I hope to get one will say "I got the runs"...lmao

  5. !!!!!YESSSSSSSS. I am SO getting that on mine. I CANNOT believe I won... I saw the title of your post and about clicked past because I definitely didn't feel like I was putting out a WINNING vibe. Thanks so much!

  6. Congrats to the winner! And I love her quote hahaha

  7. If I got another road ID I think it would say "pause my garmin"

  8. "That's What She Said" is HYSTERICAL!!!

    Maybe "Please deliver to nearest finish line."

  9. Congrats to the winner - LOVE the sayings that are posted here - hilarious!!!!! :) Hope you are having a GREAT time with your family!!!

  10. 43 miles! I think that is incredible. I have no doubt that you will blitz your upcoming marathon. How did the half go?

    I've only ever run outside once for a fun run and the run didn't go as well as I had hoped so I have totally avoided outside ever since. I think I use my treadmill as a security blanket so if you have any tips for helping me get outside I would be eternally grateful.

    Your Zoolander quotes crack me up. I don't know what it is about that movie, but I just find it hilarious. Maybe it's the combination of Ben and Will - I find both of them funny :)

  11. You are a running rockstar!!!

    Zoolander might be one of the funniest movies of ALL TIME. Def in top 10!

    Get Up & Go

  12. Sorry Vanessa, I asked how your half went, I thought you ran it last weekend so good luck for this weekend when you actually run. I am sure you won't need luck though because you have trained so hard for it. You will do an amazing job :)

  13. I need to get one of those anyway. I feel okay running alone, but then halfway through the run I get sketched out.

  14. Congratulations Stephanie!

    Hope you are enjoying time with family Vanessa! What a perfect time of the year for them to be there for a visit!

  15. congrats and I love the mantra :D

  16. I couldn't think of anything clever, but then I read Bikini Runner's race recap from the Denver Rock & Roll Half and she saw a sign that I think is perfect, so when I order one I will have it say "I've done much worse for even longer!" I like it and it makes me smile!

  17. I don't know what's funnier the mantra or the fact she can't go back lol... Her mantra cracks me up :)

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…
