This and that and giveaway reminder

3 miles on the schedule today.  It was a hot, sweaty, humid run today.  Felt very tough.


I'd like to do an upcoming blog post on "Before and After".  I'm looking for people who would not mind sending in their photos of themselves before they lost weight and after they lost the weight.  Like this:
195 to 135; 8 months to lose; complete change of diet and exercise(walking then running)
First picture is about 3.5 years ago; second picture is last month
I know there's more inspiring ones out there than me.  Let's see what you got.  Send it to me via e-mail and I'll compile a list for the blog post.  Don't be bashful - you earned it!  A great tool to do this is PicMonkey - it's what I used here.  It will hopefully be an inspiring post.  Give me a couple details like I did here(dates, pounds lost, how you did it) so I can put something about each of you.

I've already signed up for a half marathon next spring - the Lansing half marathon.  Huh?  Yes, got a deal on the race so I decided to sign up for it to see how it goes this year.  You can still join me for only $55.  This race got some good and bad feedback last year but it was the first year so I figure there's always room for improvement.  Looking forward to it since it will be a new race for me.  I guess I'll be running in winter......again:
I could go for this about now(of course, it was about 10 degrees-yikes)
Just a reminder to sign up for my race entry contest.  Hey - what's with you people?  I've got a FREE race entry to give away in Southeast Michigan?  People always complain about spending the money to race and they don't try to win a free one?  Go HERE now for a great chance thanks to Renewal by Andersen of Detroit.  It won't take you much time to sign up.  You only have until July 29th - hurry up!  I've only got 5 people signed up!  five!!!!  Lots of races to choose and a great chance to win.

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