A Frosty 10K and Coconutty Giveaway

Today I was supposed to run the Christmas City 5 Miler in Bethlehem, PA. I have been feeling run down all week, so I went with a DNS for the first time. I just couldn't see driving over 2 hours, running 5 miles in the rain, and then driving over 2 hours back.
Instead, I ran my Frosty's Great Cupcake Race. It is run by my friend Darlena from Run Find Yor Happy Pace and Cara at Running In Sanity. I chose the 10K option, and also ordered the snowflake Happy Band.
The weather here was cloudy and foggy, so I didn't take any pics while I was running. I started out wearing a running cap, but stopped halfway through and ditched it at home. It really was a great run. It didn't feel that way at first, know what I mean? My last run was a week ago, 17 miles, and I felt a little stiff today. I was checking my watch for distance but not really for time, and I was pleased to see my time when I finished!

That is only about 30 seconds behind my best 10K race time! The medal is seriously cute, there are better pics at the above websites. They even had a 5K and kid's race option. SO cute! I love their cupcake medals!

I can't believe I finished week 23 of training today. The Disney Marathon is only 5 weeks away! Holy heck!

I promised  a giveaway, didn't I? A couple weeks back I received a lovely box in the mail from Tropical Traditions! I have never smelled anything so coconutty-licious! I can't wait to try out all of the wonderful suggestions in their video (check it out below!) They have generously offered a jar for one of my readers to try!

 
 
Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil - 32 oz.
Win 1 quart of Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil!
Tropical Traditions is America’s source for coconut oil. Their Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil is hand crafted in small batches by family producers, and it is the highest quality coconut oil they offer. You can read more about how virgin coconut oil is different from other coconut oils on their website: What is Virgin Coconut Oil?

You can also watch the video they produced about Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil:
 
Tropical Traditions also carries other varieties of affordable high quality

coconut oil. Visit their website to check on current sales, to learn about the many uses of coconut oil, and to read about all the advantages of buying coconut oil online. Since the FDA does not want us to discuss the health benefits of coconut oil on a page where it is being sold or given away, here is the best website to read about the health benefits of coconut oil.
