We'd love it if you'd follow us on all social media & let us know you've shared a post.
I feel like the link-up queen this week...between the Book Club, That Time of the Month, and now Race Recaps, it's all come up at once! Good thing I'm social!
Anyways, because this is a Race Recap link-up, let's talk racing!
Yesterday, I was shopping at Bed Bath and Beyond to pick up some Fresh Wave. I made a blueberry pie over the weekend and it erupted all over my oven. Now my house smells like burnt blueberry pie. Have you ever used Fresh Wave? It's a natural odor remover, and I highly recommend it. I'm not receiving compensation for this, I just really like the product. I used Fresh Wave in the past when my dog was skunked.
Stay with me. I'm getting to the point.
While I was there, I mosied around the store. Bed Bath and Beyond always has lots of interesting things. I always find something that I just can't live without. Does that happen to you? I never leave with just what I came for. It's like going to Target.
I saw some items that might come in handy for race day. I'm always thinking about improving life on the run. Tell me what you think.
Have you ever been out for a run and there's nowhere "to go"? No need to pee on yourself anymore. The Travel John Disposable Urinal is a "unisex, portable urinal" that contains a polymer gel which "absorbs liquid waste and turns it into odorless, spill proof gel". Who knew there was such a product? Now you all know! I wonder if it will fit in my HiP ZiPP?
Full disclosure: I'm an ambassador for SLS3 Compression, and I'm only supposed to promote their products. But how could I resist these Zip Sox? Many of us struggle pulling on compression socks--well, say no more to sweating before the workout if you use these! No more throbbing calves. If you order now, you can get a second pair, free! They come in nude, if you are self conscious about wearing compression socks. Otherwise, they come in black.
The Enduracool multi-cool headband would sure come in handy for these steamy hot days. Heck, if I had been wearing this on Sunday, I probably could have cruised through my 12 miles easily! The company's website has testimonials from famous athletes, so maybe I should have picked one of these up. Comes in multiple colors.
Are you running Ragnar or any 24 hour ultras? Or, like me, do you get up before the sun to train? Then you need these HD Night Vision Glasses. Limited time offer on the website, you get 2 pair for $10! That's right! These wrap around glasses will help you see better at night. They're HD, so no worries about tripping over the cracks in the sidewalk or falling into a pothole.
Bling, schming. Who needs bling? I've got some body bling for you. These Hot Jewels metallic tattoos are just the accessory you need for your next Princess Race. Forget the tutu...you want to bedazzle yourself. Be creative and make designs on your arms! And if you are a extra sweaty runner like me, no worries. The Hot Jewels are water resistant! Yep, triathletes, these are for you too!
Finally, if you don't feel like running, but you want to slim down, there's always this: the Tummy Tuck miracle slimming system. You can combine the device with exercise OR do nothing. And after 30 days, the tummy tuck slims away belly fat. Pretty amazing, if you ask me. So why would you combine this with exercise? Bring on the Ben and Jerry's!
There you have it. Any items that you've come across that might come in handy come race day? Have you ever tried any of these products? No need to thank me for this--it's a service I'm happy to provide! :)
