It’s the first weekend of the month, and that means it’s time to pour yourself a cup of your favorite morning brew and sit down for a chat! I’m having mine with two tablespoons of collagen hydrolysate from Great Lakes Gelatin, as I have been doing every morning since December of 2018. I really do think it gives me that extra boost of turtle power! You can check out their products using this link.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you I’m more than a little obsessed with the Clif Family Winery! You can read my previous post about them here. Since writing that post, the Napa Valley Marathon (which they are one of the sponsors of) has taken place. Why not start planning a racecation in wine country for next year? You can join the winery’s Club Stride, where you can purchase their CLUB STRIDE runner’s kit as part of your membership and receive an exclusive invitation to the annual Napa Valley Marathon and other local Bay area races throughout the year. And as a wine club member, four times per year you will receive a shipment including six bottles of their limited production wines and a case of Clif Bars.
Over coffee I would tell you I wasn’t particularly upset over the cancellation of the Tokyo Marathon for the general entrants. Yes, I would have earned my fifth star this year and yes, I was really looking forward to an amazing trip. But fortunately, I was able to cancel all of my travel plans with zero penalty and zero money lost, which I’m sure softened the blow. As it turns out, it was perfect running weather, as opposed to what runners experienced last year. Here’s hoping for an even better trip and even better weather in 2021!
If we were having coffee I would tell you in preparation for Tokyo, I hopped on the workout train and would have been in pretty good shape for race day. I even kept up with Marcia’s February plank challenge! I’ve been keeping up with the momentum and I hope to continue once my crazy-busy travel schedule starts up again. Time will tell…
As I pour another cup, I’m happy to share I’ve been named a BibRave Pro as well as a SPIBelt Ambassador for the third year in a row. Through both I’ve met some amazing people and have been able to try out some awesome products and races. You can read and write your own race reviews at www.bibrave.com, and be sure to check out the awesome products at www.spibelt.com and get 10% off of your purchase using code TEAMSPI!
And last, over my final sips, I would tell you I want to sign up for All. The. Races. Just check out my ever-growing race calendar below! Why not join me for a race or two? You can find discounts for these and many other races and products on my discount page. Be sure to check them out, and share the codes with your friends!
What would you share with me over coffee? Why not pour yourself a cup of Joe and tell me what’s going on in your neck of the woods?
