New Running Stuff....

9 miles on the schedule for today but I did that yesterday so it's a rest day today.


This weekend I got a few new things related to running/blogging.  Here they are:

The first thing I got was a great surprise in the mail.  Steph over at In Steph's Shoes sent me a packet of her favorite sports drink - Hammer Heed Mandarin Orange.  I love Mandarin Oranges so I'm excited to try out this drink and flavor.  Many of you know that I have been trying to figure out how to hydrate better and get more nutrition in me when I'm running and this is a step in the right direction.  Thanks Stephanie!!  Steph's REALLY fast and qualified for Boston this past May with her Dad.  If you don't follow Steph's blog, click HERE and add her to your list of blogs.

The second thing I got which really is not really related to running except that I need it for my running blog:

Apple Airport Extreme Router

Motorola DSL Modem
Apple wireless mouse

I got an Apple Airport Extreme, a Motorola DLS Modem and a wireless mouse.  This helps provide a wireless and wired network in my home.  My other Router and Modem died on me on Friday so I really did not even want it but had no choice.  My mouse was giving me problems as well so I upgraded to the wireless bluetooth mouse.  This mouse is awesome - no buttons - you just swipe your fingers over it to move things.  My daughter was going crazy without WIFI in the house for her ipod touch.  As you can imagine, a teenager without internet access for a day - oh, the world is ending.  Haha!

Finally, this is the last thing that I got this weekend related to running:

26.2; 13.1
I had the 26.2 on the car already but I just received the 13.1 also.  I love these!!!  They are not too big but not too small.  You can stick them on the car but remove them without ruining your car and frankly, they go well with my license plate and are high quality.

What did you get related to running this weekend if anything?

Have a great day and.....Keep Running!!!!!!


  1. Cool plate!! I received some HEED in a giveaway, and I have yet to try it. I guess I feel like I am not doing hard enough workouts yet to use certain products. Let us know how it works.

  2. Always fun to get new stuff :) I got nothing :( LOL

    Hope you are having a wonderful Father's Day!

  3. Oh I swear by HEED and other Hammer products. Hope you like it/notice a difference in your energy while you are running. Good stuff.

  4. jealous of the license plate! I have always wanted a personalized one

  5. I'm not an Apple girl but I have to admit that mouse is damn sexy.

    And that license plate rocks really hard.

  6. The Airport Extreme is awesome for network-attached storage. You just plug in an external hard drive and the set-up is super easy.

    Where did you get your sticker from? My magnet got stolen, but I'm terrified of pulling paint off of my car.

  7. I freak out when not having internet so I can imagine it's total panic for a teen. Glad you are back up and running!

  8. Funny you should post this because next weekend we are buying a new wireless something-or-another. Ours is dying a slow death and I keep loosing my internet! Grrr. Enjoy the Heed. I love all things Hammer.

  9. I love the license plate!! I hope to spot you on the road one day. I'll be that crazy lady honking her horn and waving.

    I hope you like the Heed!

  10. runningonwords - I got it from a website. I'll be doing a review on them soon of where and the quality.
