Have you claimed your National Running Day badge?
I do enjoy a national day dedicated to a sport that I love. I really do, but it does seem a little silly to dedicate only one day to running - because to me, everyday is a running day.
Well, except for me, right now. I on the other hand will not be running today. I'm injured. Boo!
I'm not sure what's going on, but I do know the area just below my knee, to the inside hurts. At random times, I'll get a sharp, shooting pain, but most of the time, it's just sore to touch and achy. I'm resting right now, wearing Ward's Tommie Copper knee sleeve, icing, and stretching.
I want to run. I want to run so badly. I'm 8 weeks away from the GCI 50K and I want so badly to do this race, especially since it's the last year this race will take place. Fingers crossed this isn't major. Depending on how I feel, I'll try to go out for short run tomorrow and I have a chiropractic appointment on Friday.
Rather than be a downer about not being able to run on National Running Day - I'm going to reward one of my readers with a great new running accessory!
|Will you be the lucky one?|
I was sent two headbands from 6 Dollar Bands - one for me to try out and one for me to giveaway to one of you! The purple one above is the one that is being offered in the giveaway. I promise I did not wear it! Not even once. I snapped a picture of it and put it away so Izzy wouldn't get it either!
As I said, I was sent two pairs. I chose to try out the pink double band.
I've never seen a double banded headband before, so I was quite happy to try this one out. I do love sparkly headbands too! What I enjoyed about this one was that 6dollarbands are adjustable and they did not slip at all. Each of their headbands are lined with velvet and are quite affordable. As the name of the store suggests, most of the bands are $6, but they do have a selection of $8 bands as well. A woman can never have too many headbands, especially if you have a daughter who likes to take them!
Needless to say, I love this headband. And I received tons of compliments wearing it as well!
