I had a chance to try out some pack it gear from Eagle Creek to make traveling for races easier! This is my first video review! Thanks to my friends at RocknBlog for the opportunity!

Some pics from last night's opening night of the training program at my local Fleet Feet. I am mentoring the No Boundaries 5k program, which basically means I hang out with the runners and give them encouragement, and form tips, etc.
Last night was the magic mile. I'll be missing the next 3 workouts due to a race and family obligations, but I can't wait to go back!

Today was a crazy day! Lots of fun mail, a quick run and a bearded dragon.
Yes, you read that correctly.
Four days ago, my neighbor up the street posted on our development's Facebook page that their bearded dragon had escaped.
This afternoon, my corgi found it. After about 20 minutes in the hot sun, the Boy and I captured and returned it to the family. They were so happy!
It really is the little things!

We have a beautiful trail that winds through our development in SC, called the Carolina Thread Trail. Today I walked the trail and gathered two bags of garbage. It was roughly 3 miles of trail. Gross, people. Clean up after yourselves!
Happy Earth Day everyone, let's try and make it earth day everyday! What do you do regularly for our environment?
We recycle and we compost every day, and we try and maximize our trips in the car so that we aren't driving somewhere every day!

Last weekend I was supposed to run the Runapalooza Half Marathon with my Jersey runner besties. Because I have been traveling so much, and will be traveling more in the weeks to come, I decided to run locally instead. I chose to run the Come See Me Half in Rock Hill, just a few towns over and part of a large week long festival they have every year.
The packet pick up was the night before at their local YMCA. I had to do some pretty serious research to find that out. There were no emails prior to the race and there was no info on the race page. I posted at my local MRTT page and was told the info could be found at the website of the timing company. Ummmmm ok.....
Anyway, it was a very nice facility and a pretty decent drive, and while I was there I even hit up a few Little Free Libraries. They were mostly at Elementary schools, so I got rid of about 20 books, but only ended up taking 2.
The actual packet pick up was very organized and the swag wasn't too shabby, so I was optimistic about race day!
