I’m FREE!! And I have winners!

Wow yesterday sure was disgusting. But today I’m back and feeling at least a little bit better. Perhaps even good enough to try a short run on my lunch break because…


I’m sorry, but no amount of dry heaving is going to make me let that go to waste.

Just kidding. No dry heaves over here. Just a mild headache and maybe a little sunshine and endorphins will take care of it.

Today is full of not just good weather news, but also good chiropractor news!

I’M FREE!!!!!!


That’s what I’m talking about, Ray.
He’s my favorite football player of all time, you know.

Yes I have been officially released by Dr. D who does not want to see my face again for a very long time. As much as I love that guy, I don’t particularly want to see him again either. Obviously I can’t throw myself right back into running the way that I was before all this happened, but as long as I start slow I should be okay. Today I feel no negative effects of the 3.1 miles I ran Saturday morning, so I’ll take that as a good sign. Kelly St. Shamrock 5K, I’m coming for you this weekend! (Though maybe a little slower than I might like.)

Oh and I also have winners!


Thanks to everyone who played along with my Hydrapak SoftFlask and GU giveaway and thank you so much to Hydrapak for providing me with such a great prize! I should mention that these are available at REI stores everywhere in case anyone wants to go find one and doesn’t feel like ordering it online because they are impatient like me.

There are TWO winners today. The first one will receive this lovely 500ml SoftFlask:


And that person is:



Thanks for tweeting about this giveaway, Tessa! You win! I hope this will solve all of your dehydration problems.

And then also I have a winner for the grab bag o’ GU products:




You’ve been GU’d!! I hope you enjoy them and thanks for liking me on Facebook. 🙂

I will be contacting you both shortly to coordinate your prizes!

Is anyone else running in a St. Paddy’s Day race? How is your running weather today? Tell me about it!
