I Heart Mail

I get so excited when I see a package on the front porch or an envelope in the mail (with the exception of bills and junk), and this week I got a couple of very cool items when I came home from work.

First, I got my official Sweat Pink gear!

Do you Sweat Pink?
I will be sporting my Sweat Pink tank tomorrow during my 15k and get the word out there, as well as my pink shoelaces.  You know I had to immediately lace them up.

You shoelaces make you run faster.   True fact!  ;)  I'll be holding a giveaway soon so that I can share the Sweat Pink love with my awesome readers, so keep yours eyes peeled!

A couple of weeks ago I entered a giveaway over at Alexandra's blog, Pop Fit Life, for Adora, a calcium supplement cleverly hidden in chocolate.  HELLO!  I know that I don't get the amount of calcium that I need (I got a lecture about this in Minnesota from my grandmother, who is also a nurse).  What better way to get some calcium into my body than by eating chocolate!  I was the lucky winner and received these this week -

I don't normally like dark chocolate but these were really good.  J broke into them before I had a chance to, and he liekd them as well.

Today I spent the day at a paintball field watching J and his paintball team play in a tournament.  They did decent - they came in 2nd place.  I got a little sunburn on half of my legs...good thing I only wear shorts on the weekend.  i saw the cutest shirt at the tournament -

Such a girl power shirt :)  Love it! 
As I mentioned earlier, tomorrow is my first 15k race, and I'm a little nervous about it, especially after my episode I had last week after my 8 mile run.  I've tried really hard to do a good job of hydrating today with Powerade and water, and I'm trying a new type of food for my carb loading tonight - 

After I took a bite I thought to take a picture for the blog :) 

If you have any spare positive vibes available, please send them my way tomorrow morning at around 7:30 a.m. EST.  I'll definitely be Sweating Pink!  Recap to come either tomorrow night or Monday about the race.

Until next time,
