That Time Again!

My bedroom furniture is seriously standing on its last legs.  It was an antique given to my mom and passed down to me, and some days I’m afraid the wooden frame is going to collapse and leave me sleeping on the floor.  I am in desperate need of new bed sets, which is why I wish I could win my own giveaway!  Last week I was once again contacted by CSN Stores to do a giveaway, and since I know how much everyone loves a giveaway I happily agreed.  The prize up for grabs this time is a $45 gift card good for use on any of the CSN Stores sites.

The gift card does not cover shipping costs, but you can still pick up something pretty nice with $45.  I’ll leave the contest open until Monday at midnight EST, and announce the winner on Tuesday morning.  Two ways to enter.

  1. Leave a comment on this post
  2. For a second bonus entry, tweet about the giveaway and leave another comment telling me you tweeted.

Good luck!

Last nights workout was a good one, a 5 mile tempo run with the middle 3 miles at 9:05 pace.  My legs felt good, my stomach however was a different story.  It started hurting at mile 2, and ached for the entire rest of the run.  Ugh, I hate when that happens because it was all I could think about.  Either way, I sucked it up and finished my run in about 47 minutes.

Also, Alex says thanks for all the birthday wishes.  He treated himself to a lovely birthday lunch of Five Guys, not bad if you ask me.  I got some exciting news/news that will stress me out until next week yesterday, and I celebrated by enjoying on of my favorite CPK pizzas for dinner.  The Spinach and Artichoke crispy thin crust is the best, and a Pomegranate vodka with blueberry pomegranate POM juice went perfectly with it.  Yeah, I’m still making my way through the case that POM sent me months ago haha.

I’m heading to Arlington, VA tomorrow to hang with my girlfriends for the weekend and I’m pretty excited about it.  I do however have a 9 mile long run on the schedule for Saturday morning and am looking for a good path/place to run it.  The girls live right near the 4 Mile Run Trail, does anyone know how far East that goes?  Can I follow it all the way to the water, or should I run West on it?  Also, if anyone wants to accompany me for those 9 miles that could be fun too!

Ok well, happy Thursday and don’t forget to enter the giveaway!

  1. Have fun in VA. I’m originally from MD and always run on the Capital Crescent Trial when I’m home, but I don’t think that’s that close to Arlington. It does go to Georgetown – is that close?

  2. I would love to with the CSN giveaway! I could totally use some new pans or perhaps a grill pan!

    Have fun this weekend in VA! 🙂

  3. Pom juice is fantastic. and so is CSN Stores.

  4. I hate when the stomach starts to rebel. I feel your pain. Way to push through! 🙂

  5. Ohh CSN giveaway would be great for some training gear (like weights which I keep pretending don’t exist at the gym) 😉

    I’ve been reading your blog for a bit now and just wanted to say that I really enjoyed reading your 3 part story – your writing definitely kept me coming back to read each of the next parts 🙂

  6. Have a fun trip!

    I hate when my stomach starts to hurt on a run. Its like having to pee, you won’t be able to think about anything else and that just makes it worse.

  7. Have a GREAT weekend with your friends!

  8. Love this giveaway! I just moved so I can always use a gift card for some new household items :).

    Good luck this weekend running your 9miler. Hope your stomach stays settled.

  13. These CSN give-a-ways are the best!! I am dying for a dehydrator!!

  19. Hope I win! I’ll tweet this.

  20. Ugh.. why does that happen when running?!?! I hope that you’re feeling better!! How’s the training going??

  21. Hey Kelly, Hope you had a great time in Arlington. I live there and saw you were down here for the weekend. I also live right on 4 mile run and its a great trail. You can take it east and it dumps you right on the Mt. Vernon trail which is a great run up the Potomac. North on Mt Vernon takes you past the airport to Georgetown and south takes you to Old Town Alexandria. Its a great run.

    also, ps, I am running my first 1/2 marathon in Baltimore in two weeks so I feel your training pain;)


  22. yay for CSN gift certs! Next time you come to the DC area you really should metro/drive to downtown to run the trails around the monuments (its fun and always pretty darn flat!)

  23. I just found your blog through a comment on Meghann blog. It’s horrible what happen to them.. but think about all the connections people will now be making! They just have to keep the TRUTH out there! Anyway, glad I found your blog. I’ll be reading daily! Excited to maybe perhaps win a give away..

  24. Ok. I tweeted too :0)
