marathon Monday....

Happy Monday everyone!!! Hope everyones weekend was just fabulous and you are well rejuvenated and ready for the week :) To kick off this week strong I am excited to announce I am doing a giveaway of my cards over on Henning Love today. Meg is just the cutest thing ever, so head over to her blog and enter to win my giveaway!!!!! and of course check out her blog and leave her some love. 

 My half marathon is in just under two weeks. Ahhhh I cant believe how quickly it is coming up.  The weather in Arizona is not cooling down much,  if anything it has become a little hotter in the last few days. Since then I have decided to find a way to beat the heat!  I am now getting up in the mornings and running at 6:00am when it is a little cooler out.  

The training it getting more difficult these days.  I am past the comfort 5 mile runs and I am running the 6, 7, and 8 miles now.  I have had to turn to some resources to keep me pushing myself.

My newest and best friend has become my Nathan hydration belt.  I am obsessed! If anyone is looking to get a belt, the Nathan is wonderful! I can't even tell I am wearing it.

My ipod! I love this little shuffle.  I have the ipod touch but I have found the little shuffle is exactly what I need for those long runs.

My bubble gum!! This not only comes in handy on Tuesday's but I LOVE chewing gum and running.  I take all my anger out on every bite.

Gu! I just started taking the Gu this past week.  The texture is awful but it does wonders for your energy.

All of my key needs to get me through a run!!
