1. Here's a great way to end your week. Check out my new favorite commercial. Once again, I am smitten with whoever made this commercial (remember, my imaginary love affair with the Hump Day creator?!) I now want all the Guinness:
2. I was nominated for my first ever blogging award! Angelena, who blogs over at On Fire Fitness, and a fellow Sweat Pink Ambassador, nominated me for a Liebster Award! Liebster awards are 'love' given to new bloggers by more veteran bloggers. I am humbled and filled with gratitude to be nominated. The sense of community and encouragement I feel from the blogging community already is so awe inspiring; and reminds me a lot of the running community. Something I've been trying to do more and more in my life is support and encourage those around me, regardless of our differences, and I love being part of a network that strives to do just that. So, my Liebster post will be up in a bit. In the meantime, I'd love to be introduced to some new blogs to nominate so feel free to drop me a comment if you are a newbie too!
3. September Fitness Challenge. I created a simple challenge for September, since this month is going to be more heavily focused on preparing for my October race. I've simply made a commitment to do at least 100 crunches, of any variety, every day this month. Some days I do more, some days I don't, but I like the simplicity of it.
4. And lastly, I'm heading down to Myrtle Beach, SC tomorrow for a family vacation. Entire extended family of multiple generations under the same roof for a whole week, what could go wrong?! I kid, I kid! I am looking forward to spending some quality time with my grandparents, parents, aunt, sisters and of course the kiddos. Also, I lucked out and got pretty much the coolest roomie EVER:
Fear not, I will keep in touch next week via Twitter and Instagram, and I'll post a recap when I return.
Have a great weekend!
