Run Like a Girl Necklace Winner + Nike Deals!

Did you really think I would let you find out the winner at the beginning? Come on now, people. Not a chance. First you have to earn it by reading my blog and looking at my pictures. My giveaway, my rules.

Thanks to a $25 off coupon AND a $5 off coupon that were set to expire, I went to the Nike outlet yesterday to see if anything caught my eye. In brief? Lots caught my eye. I left after paying $26, and scored the following: a pair of running capris, two t-shirts, a pink running tank and a set of socks (boring, for the hubs). I consider that a huge SUCCESS. Drool away:

My favorite deal of the day!

All for $26 after coupons...yes!!!

Alright, now the good stuff for you guys. The winner of The Run Home "Run Like a Girl" necklace is...

Watch MeGo Run is the winner! Congrats Meg! Send me an email with your information and I'll get the necklace in the mail to you. Meg is running a half marathon today, so head over and wish her luck, or read all about how she did once it's finished!

Hope everyone is having a wonderful Sunday!

What is the best shopping deal you've ever gotten?
This Nike trip is definitely at the top. I always shop on sale and clearance racks but I rarely get into coupons. I'm starting to for a few things and I'm very pleased with the results!

Does anyone else go shopping, come home and immediately have a fashion show in the living room?
Of course not. That's ridiculous. I would never....

Ok, fine. Every. Single. Time. I go shopping.


  1. Hahaha! Love good deals! They had some amazing deals at the race expo! I got hooked up for sure! Congrats to Meg!

  2. Nice job with getting all those great deal! I love coming home and having a fashion show. Have to make sure I still like what I got!

  3. Fashion shows are the BEST part of buying new clothes!!!!!! I flippin' LOVE that shirt btw ... gonna have to make that!! =)

  4. There's a Nike outlet up in Santa Fe. I think I should head up there some time and see what deals I might find!

  5. That shirt rocks!

    The real question is does anyone come home from shopping and NOT do a fashion show???!!!! That is the most fun part!

    Get Up & Go

  6. I do a fashion show for the Hubby. And sometimes I feel guilty for buying myself nice stuff so I'll go out and get him something too. Usually in the form of socks (c'mon now, totally the reason you bought some for your hubs right?) or undies. Then I make him model what I got him too. haha.

  7. That is a MAJOR haul! Nice!

    And I, too, always fashion show after shopping.

  8. SA-WEET SCORE at the Nike Store!!!!

    I married an IT guy and almost all of my shopping is online - far less exciting!

    Hope you are having a wonderful Sunday!

  9. The fashion show in the living room is the most important part!

    I just bought a piece of luggage and it was half off and with the store discount I ended up with a $423 suitcase for under $200

  10. Great trip to the Nike store! You got some good deals!

    Earlier in the summer Allan and I scored over $1000 of clothes at the GAP outlet for around $300. I'll probably never beat that shopping trip!

    We had a Spring Break tradition of always going to the GAP & Banana Republic outlets and we would always come back and try on all our new clothes. I may or may not still do that...

    Have a great Sunday afternoon!

  11. wow, awesome deals. I'm jealous! Yayyy i'm super excited I won. I'm emailing you now :)

  12. You did really well at Nike!!
    I especially like that tank.

  13. Cute gear you got! I love finding good deals on my workout clothes!!

  14. Very nice!

    Fashion show. Yes. The Captain insists!

  15. I love that shirt!

    I usually get really good deals on baby clothes at Kohl's, but for me I haven't really bought much lately. I do check the clearance rack for workout clothes at Target on a weekly basis. :)

  16. i just need to cut to the chase cuz i'm late: CONGRATS on that 21.5 miler!! dang girl, u're a rockstar!! hehe...i'm super proud. :)

    as for deals, i'd be hard pressed to one up that nike loot, i'm also a nike-a-holic so i give u double props...hehe.

  17. Fashion show is a must ... your family needs to tell you how good you look in the bargains you just found!! I tell the hubster that everything I buy is on sale ... I don't think that is wrong is it?

  18. I want Nike to make a shirt that goes with their motto "Hit the road not the wall!"

  19. I seriously almost bought that shirt at the Nike outlet a few months ago! That is a great deal for all that stuff!

    Yay for Meg-O!

  20. I usually count on Megan (the one right above me) to help point out the running clothes deals. I never have that luck on my own!

  21. I love that shirt too:) I work in the department at Nike that makes t-shirts and I kept one of those samples in grey and pink because I liked it so much. We spotted Kristen Cavilari wearing it in Santa Monica shortly after it was released! $26 is a great deal for all that stuff!

  22. Congrats to MEg - that's awesome! Hey I have the same pink/white Nike tank & LOVE IT!!! Enjoy the savings!!!

  23. Great minds think alike! It looks like we were both spending our Nike Score Cards on the last day before they expired. I didn't score any deals as good as yours but I was able to pick up some tanks that I really needed for $25 less than what I usually pay. Love the shirt! I did not see that at the Nike Outlet that I shop at :(

  24. Wow, nice score for $26. I was at the Nike Outlet over the weekend and couldn't find anything cheaper than if I went to any of the sporting good stores here with a coupon.

  25. Ahhh that is the best shhirt!!!! Love me some bargain shopping!

  26. Thank you for sharing, I also like nike hyperfuse shoes very much.

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…
