2. Need some running motivation? Check out “Meet the Blogger: Too Tall Fritz“.  I’ve had the pleasure of meeting Amanda twice: at Disneyworld after the half marathon and before the Chicago Lakefront 50K.  She is a busy woman with a job, two kids, a husband, and a few pets.  She recently completed 3 marathons and an ultra marathon in April to celebrate turning 40.  I ran the same ultra marathon and barely had enough strength to complete a half marathon and yet this lady ran 3 more marathons. Amazing!!


3. I finally got my Camelback Marathoner Vest.  It didn’t come with any instructions (not that I really need any) but it looks like a complicated piece.  I am worried I will break it while filling it up with water. Shouldn’t be that complicated right?  I’ll let you know how I like it.

BONUS:  Don’t forget to enter my Injinji giveaway.  I will announce the winners on Saturday, May 24. Injinji is having a Memorial Day Sale so go to their website to save 30% on selected styles.

  1. I can’t wait to read how you like that vest! I have been going back and fourth about whether or not I should get one, so I am very interested in your future post on this 🙂

Thank you for your comment!
