Tried It Tuesday

Happy Valentine's Day!  And if you're in Maine, happy late start or snow day for you.  The clean up is still going on from yesterday's blizzard dumping, just in time for another crazy snow tomorrow!  I can honestly say I am 100% done with snow.   But, from the looks of it, the snow will be here for a little while, so I may as well embrace it.   Sorta.  

I love snowshoeing and if I can make a trail or two, I'll get out and do more snowshoe running in my fields and woods.  But someone suggested I look into snow mobile trails.  I'm sure there are some in my area.  I just don't know where.   I'll do some searching and perhaps head out there.  That would keep me from the side of the roads where it is super dangerous (on my road especially!) and change it up a bit from my treadmill love-affair.  

Something I thought would be perfect to share with you today is my love for Red Ace Organics.  I've been trying them for a little while now and really do love them!…

2017 MidWinter Classic Recap

My 6th MidWinter Classic is in the books.   If you live in Maine, I believe this is the must-do race in the winter.  I look forward to it each year and this year was no different.  

MidWinter Classic is a 10 mile race in Cape Elizabeth usually held the morning of Super Bowl Sunday.  You never know what the weather will be like.  One year the temperature was in the 40s and I wore shorts!  But this year was definitely not shorts weather (for me anyway).  

It was actually a pretty nice day.  Sunny, in the high 20/low 30s but windy.  I opted for my Spandits fleece lined Bandit, Spandits custom tights (half Abyss and half Fast Cat), Darn Tough socks, Mizuno gloves, Altra One 2.5s, and my Altra half-zip top.

Before heading down to the race, I rolled out my tight hamstrings (and calves, quads, IT band... the works).  I love how my Trigger Pin does the job. 

I mostly chose my One 2.5s because they had my Momentum shoe charms "Finish Strong" on them; always the best inspiration on rac…

Friday Favorites with Kamagon Ball

The following post is sponsored by Hedstrom Fitness via my partnership with Fit Approach.  In addition to compensation, I was given free product to facilitate this review. All opinions are my own. 
Fridays ARE my absolute favorite day of the week.  It's almost like suddenly I can see the light at the end of the tunnel and I feel rejuvenated again!  Or maybe it was the early release Tuesday, late start on Wednesday and then full on entire day off Thursday all due to that four letter word - SNOW!   The week kinda flew right by and before you knew it, Friday was here!

This weather lately has me wanting to stay inside as much as possible, which is completely okay with me as I've been building my home gym for a bit so I'm pretty much all set.  The latest and greatest piece of equipment has been the Kamagon Ball.  They what ball?  Yes, the Kamagon Ball.  It uses Hydro-Inertia™, the utilization of water to create an unstable resistance that increases core strength and stability …
