I've been using my New Samsung Galazy S4 for almost 2 weeks. I am super excited and totally in love with this device ! Now don't get me wrong, I loved my S3 as well, but the S4 has amazing resolution and a faster processer.
I am still learning about my phone and all the sweet little apps and widgets it has. I am very happy that now I can use the SBeam with my hubby. He has my S3 and we can share pictures without having to email or text them, so the other can have the photo on their phone.

There are some new things on my S4 I have to figure out, like, Reading Mode and Smart Stay... Those were not on my previous phone, so I need to check it out.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 takes great photos. I find myself using my ohone moreso than my camera.
We recently went to Orlando and even though I brought my regular camera with me, my phone was all I needed !

I am now a matched runner :) Yay !!! #Irun4

When I began running on a regular basis, a blogger/runner friend of mine told me about a great group call I Run 4. This group matches runners of all types with children/young adults who cannot run because of various challenges/disabilities.
Some of these children are terminal, some will have a life long struggle ahead of them. In the couple of months I have been in the group, I have read about a handful of children who have succumbed to their various diseases.
Only within the last 2 weeks have I been matched about a 6-8 week wait.
I have been match with a little boy, right around the age of my older boys.
He doesn't live close to me, so meeting him in person will not be happening anytime soon.
I run for him, for "J".
He cannot run and probably never will but that's okay. Each step, each mile, each run I take because he doesn't have that ability right now.
If you run, you can do this. You can make a difference in a child's life. Without money, without doing anything differently than you do now. Just run and post...
Honestly, you'll forge a special friendship with this child, with their parent and family. It's an amazing bond with someone you don't know.
One runner waiting to be matched had come very close to the top of the list and he said something to the fact of "I feel like an expectant Dad, any day now, I will hear the news that "it's Time"..

Zim's Max-Freeze - Soothing your aching muscles and joint pain #sponsored

Disclosure: I was provided products to facilitate a review from ZimsUSA . All opinions are my own.
Do you have muscle or joint pain after exercise, working in the yard, or other activities?
I do !
I was introduced to Zim's Max-Freeze Roll On and Gel that helps sooth all sorts of things
From sore muscles muscle sprains plus back, shoulder, neck pains, Max-Freeze can help temporarily relive these muscle aches.
With the running I've been doing lately and the new found hip ache I have,
the Zim's Max Freeze Roll On and Gel are a staple for me!
I like the scent and how quickly it diminishes, as well as the long lasting relief this product provides.
The active ingredient in the 2 Zim's products I used have a Topical Analgesic,
which is Natural Menthol USP 3.7%.
I've used the Zim's products on my back, legs, and calves.
I've used them on hubby as well. He's now a big fan :)
You can find Zim's on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Pinterest. Don't forget to visit their website!

A little Bummed #RFYL #ZombiePreparednessTeam

I've been so excited and promoting the Run For Your Lives Events.
Last week I was notified that they have cancelled all Runs and that RFYL is no longer in business.

I am sad.

My husband and I were both so excited to participate, my sister booked us a great hotel in Orlando and we were going to celebrate Anthony's birthday (which happens to the the day after the event was to occur).

Such is life that businesses cease to exists, every day.

I know that each runner who paid should have received an email and a refund in progress.

I would like to apologize to anyone who utilized the code I provided to purchase an entry to a future event.

We are still heading to Orlando for the weekend and will make it super special for the boys and my birthday boy...
