Inaugural Ainsley's Angels Half Marathon

It's time to prepare!
 

Photo Credit: Ainsley's Angels
 
 
I'm going to cross something off of my Bucket List.
The Inaugural Ainsley's Angels Half Marathon will happen on Sunday, October 18th, 2015.
This amazing run will take place on October 18, 2015 at 7:30 AM in the Jay B. Starkey Park, 10500 Wilderness Park Blvd., Newport Richie, FL 34655

Why am I doing this?

Well, I'm a little bit insane. What 200lb+ woman tries to run 13.1 miles.
(That would be me)

But this benefits Ainsley's Angels. And as far as running goes,
they are 2nd in my heart just below I Run 4

Who is Ainsley's Angels ?
Ainsley's Angels was born through  Kim and Lori Rossiter. Born the middle of three children in 2003, Ainsley, was diagnosed with Infantile Neuroaxonal Dystrophy (INAD) just before turning four years of age. INAD is an extremely rare terminal illness that has slowly caused global paralysis.

Make Squeezing your lemons a breeze with the Kitchen-Delight Citrus Squeezer #lovejuicing #fitfam

Disclosure: I received this product for review purposes in exchange for my honest and unbiased review. There are no affiliate or compensated links in this post

I'm not always a fan of drinking water. I'm sure you've heard that before. I know you have from me.
I've used and really do like the infusion bottles, but sometimes, I feel like I don't get the most from the lemon when I use it.


This stainless steel citrus squeezer is truly a delight to use. It's the 1st one I've owned, so I truly have no comparison. I will tell you that this product is very easy to use. The long ergonomic stainless steel handles provide the proper leverage and comfort to make getting every last drop a breeze.

I'm sharing a great App I've Been using. #GetPaidToGetHealthy @pactapp #fitfam #Fitfluential

Disclosure: I am sharing an app I've been using for almost a year now. There is no compensation nor product in exchange. There are no referral links in this post nor will I receive anything if anyone chooses to download this app.

Last year, I began using an application on my cell phone call "Pact".
This helped to make me accountable for my food logging, exercise, and healthy eating.
 
Pact uses connected apps to help follow your food logging. I use My Fitness Pal. I choose to log my food 7 days a week. Why do any less? It helps keep my eating in check.
 
For the Gym part of the Pact, I use a couple of different applications. If I am running, I can use Runkeeper or Map My Run. If you use a device such as a Fitbit or Jawbone, and you reach 10,000 steps, that will count for a day's exercise. You can also "Check in" at a local gym and there is now a "motion tracker" so that if you are exercising at home for 30 minutes, that can count for your exercising.
 
You can choose how much or how little you track. This also decides how much you'll make.
 
Below is a screen shot of my pact this week.

Easing my running and exercise aches and pains with Ape Tape #BestKinesiologyTape #sponsored #Tomoson #Review

Disclosure: I received this product in exchange for on honest and unbiased review via Tomoson


I've been wanting to try Kinesiology Tape for quite a while. The aches and pains from running gets to me sometimes. So when the opportunity arose to try Ape Tape - Kinesiology Recovery Tape , I literally jumped at the chance.


 
The roll of Ape Tape - Kinesiology Recovery Tape says it will work for 10-12 applications, but I feel that I can probably get more out of it. We'll see.

 
The kinesio tape does what other wraps, pads, patches, bandages, and bracing accessories can't. Designed with a bio-mechanical lifting mechanism, Ape Tape gently lifts the skin away from soft tissue underneath. This remedies strain and pressure on the weak area, which improves blood flow for inflammatory management and fast healing.

 
Cutting the tape was easy, as was peeling the paper. I would suggest only peeling one side, placing on your skin, and then adhering while peeling the rest of the way. I made the mistake of peeling the paper all at once, and it stuck together, folded on itself, and I cursed myself for it!

The tape stayed well on my knee and I had full range of motion. It did not peel and actually, didn't hurt too bad when I did take it off. When I used it on my Varicose vein, I did so in lieu of using a compression sleeve. It felt great and I didn't have any of the usual pain.


I asked Bestie to use the Ape Tape - Kinesiology Recovery Tape for her elbow. I cut the pieces to thin, I think, because they peeled easily from around her elbow. The kinesiology tape has also shown to be effective in treating gouty arthritis, chronic migraines, fibromyalgia, abdominal pain, congested sinuses, jaw pain, and much more. She has RA, as well as issues with her elbow joint, which is why I wanted to try it on her. I'll try again.

Easy Tech Universal 2-in-1 Smartphone Car Mount Review and Giveaway #easytechmount #ad #Note3 #GalaxyS4 @VerizonWireless

Disclosure: I received this product for review purposed as well as one for a giveaway. All opinions regarding this product are my own.

I don't go anywhere without my phone, or as my hubby calls it, my phablet.
My Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is one of the larger phones and I love it.

I like to keep it close by in the car. I never know when one of the school will call to tell me one of my 3 boys is unwell, or my bestie wants to meet for lunch, or I want to hear my hubby's voice.
I usually have my phone tucked under my leg, or sitting just on the top of my purse.

But one wrong turn and my phone is across my van. So much for keeping it accessible.

Taking on the Dunedin Kiwanis Midnight Run 5k for the 2nd year #fitfam #fitfluential #REALwomenmove #IRun4

This Independence Day, my eldest son and I ran the Kiwanis Midnight 5k.
Initially, it was supposed to be the hubby, but ... plans change.

This was the first night time run for my son. He was adamant about staying close to me, as the lighting wasn't the best throughout the course. He hadn't run this bridge before, unlike me. Bestie and I have taken this route so many times.
 
I fell asleep on the couch and woke in time to get dressed and leave. We made it with minutes to spare after getting out bib & shirts [and running our shirts back to the car].
 
It's been a while since I had my fellow I Run 4 runner next to me. I really enjoy our time out running together.
