Happy Birthday, Bad Blogger

So today is my birthday. Happy birthday to me!  Even though it is my birthday, I realized that I've been a bad blogger lately.  I haven't had a new post up in over a week, so what have I been up to.  As I said it's my birthday.  Now I wish I could say that I'm holding a giveaway like I have seen other bloggers, but that's not in the cards for this year.  Maybe I'll figure out how to hold one on my one year blogoversary.  (That's a word....right?)  Now, I have promised you reviews and a couple giveaways.  And I still promise that those are still coming.  I am polishing a couple reviews and will be writing more coming soon, but for now I'm going to let you know what I been up to the past couple of weeks.

I have still been working on my #5am5k.  I am still holding true to that commitment.  I have also recruited my brother-in-law to run the Spartan Race with me next month. So, I have been working with him to try to train him for that race.  Who would've thought of me as a running coach?!  Certainly not me, but I find myself doing it still.  And in helping him I think I have also help myself because I was able to make it 8.3 miles yesterday in all. Now this is a long for my long run except for the half marathon that I ran December.  As I get closer to Tough Mudder I expect that I should be able to get to 9 or even 10 miles.  As I get to the end of October, even after the Spartan Race, I expect that I will be to at least get to 15 if not upwards of 18 miles for the G.O.A.T.z 21 mile trail run.  I am already getting nervous for Tough Mudder, but I don't know if it's more nervous or more excited.  Especially since I'll be running it with so many friends.  I do know that I'm really excited to run Spartan next month and extremely nervous for the G.O.A.T.z trail run.  I do know that if I can handle a 21 mile trail run that next year I think I may tackle Omaha marathon, or even the Lincoln marathon,  We'll see how I do with the 21 mile to see if the half marathon is more of my magic distance for now.

So, now that I have talked about what I have been doing and what I have coming up soon let's talk about the reviews I'm doing and the giveaways.  I know we all love giveaways!  I will be doing a review on Perky Jerky, Tiger Balm, Quest Nutrition "guilt free" pasta, GungHo energy, and at the moment I know that I am forgetting something.  The giveaways that I will be holding will most certainly be for GungHo and also for the Tiger Balm.  If I am remembering correctly I will be allowed to give away some GungHo to either 2 or 3 readers and the Tiger Balm I believe is also for 3 readers.  So be sure to keep a lookout for those reviews and giveaways in the coming weeks.

Until next time, keep those beat coming!
