There is almost not faster way to get me jumping up and down like a little kid again than to send me a surprise in the mail. I love getting “fun mail.” As an adult, getting bills in the mail is a regular thing, but every now and then, something fun arrives that makes me super excited!
Yesterday, FUN MAIL arrived! EEEEEEEK!
A while back, a fellow running blogger, Eat to run. Run to eat., hosted a runner swag swap. All you had to do was send Jerry an e-mail letting her know that you were interested and include your mailing address. She paired runners together to swap a gift box of runner goods! I thought it was such a fun idea, so I immediately signed up to participate.
- 20oz Penguin Sport Wash
- 2 sets of Nathan reflective Snap! Bands (neon yellow and pink ribbon)
- Gu Roctane Ultra Endurance Drink Mix (Tropical Fruit Flavor)
- Gu Energy Gel (Peanut Butter Flavor)
- Gu Roctane Energy Gel (Cherry Lime Flavor)
I am so excited! I have never tried an official sport wash, but I have heard it really does the trick on getting the stank out of “long run clothes.” Also, the reflective bands come with PERFECT TIMING! With Hood to Coast coming up in only a few weeks, these will be ideal for wearing during night runs. I have a lot of running gear, but I was seriously lacking on reflective, safety gear, so these will definitely come in handy! And Gu products? You really can’t go wrong!
Also, my super awesome swag swap partner made me a great running mix! I can’t wait to check out these tunes and add them to my running playlist!
- “Intro” by the xx
- “Cracks” by Freestylers
- “Throwing Fire” by Ronald Jenkees
- “Young Blood” by The Naked and Famous
- “Life in Technicolor” by Coldplay
- “Move Away” by The Killers
- “Goodness Gracious” by Person L
- “19-2000 [Soulchild Remix]” by Gorillaz
- “We Owe This to Ourselves” by Anberlin
- “Watch the World” by Boxcar Racer
IF I can get my act together by Halloween, I mentioned to Jerry that I might be interested in hosting a swap on this blog. Things with the move and new house should be much calmer by then, so I don’t see why I couldn’t, but I’ll let you know as that time gets closer.
Speaking of new house…tomorrow is the BIG DAY! We were supposed to close this past Friday, but due to circumstances out of our control, the closing got pushed to tomorrow. I am so excited! I really don’t know what to do with myself! We are going to finally have a home! There are so may awesome things about our new house that I don’t even have the time to write it all out here, but suffice it to say…super amazing things lay ahead!
How is YOUR weekend going? Did you RACE this weekend? If so, how did you do?
