Back in early October, I met Jill from Lift Your Sole at the expo for the Army 10 Miler. I purchased a cord and three charms, but also mentioned to Jill that I’d love to have one with “MCM Mama” on it. I gave her my business card and promised I’d be in touch. Well, my busy October/November got the best of me and I completely forgot. Jill did not.
Look what came in the mail for me yesterday:
I.LOVE.IT! She even sent me a lovely silver chain to wear it on! Thanks, Jill!!! If you are looking for a gift for the runner in your life, I highly recommend her products. I don’t often wear jewelry, but I’ve been wearing the necklace I bought in October often.
Things are still not great in the running department, but they are getting better. Four days of not running is about to send me over the edge, so hopefully today I’ll be able to run or get some other intense cardio. On the bright side, today the tenderness is gone. There’s still a bit of soreness when I run up the stairs (I’m a mom, no way I can not run up and down my stairs 5 million times a day). I’ve managed to get some exercise each day and I’m eating carefully, so my T’day pounds have come right back off, but I need some endorphins and I need them soon! I’m thankful for the HBBC as it’s motivated me to find ways to move. My goal has been to earn 5 points a day between exercise and fruits/veggies.
If I do get in a run today (and it doesn’t hurt), I’m pretty sure even my California readers will hear me screaming for joy. ;o)
