On deck!... 3rd Annual AdvoRunner Virtual Turkey Trot!

I love this little tradition!

Last year was bigger and better and I can't wait to see what unfolds this year!

The rules....

The rules are easy! 

1. Run or walk (just move forward) a minimum of a 5k (3.12 miles) on Thanksgiving Day. This can be in the form of an actual organized Turkey Trot race or you can go out on your own and knock out those miles. 
2. Post your pic (can be a medal, a selfie, just something to show you've logged your miles) on the Instagram or on the Advorunner Facebook page with  #AdvorunnerTurkeyTrot

3. Brag to the world that you started your day off with a bang and eat that pumpkin pie with a little less guilt. 

Two Prizes involved this year... 
1. One 10 day cleanse! Who doesn't need to do a 10 day cleanse between Thanksgiving and Christmas????
2. My favorite running product with a side of Spark... 1 bottle of 02Gold and 1 box of Spark!
If you want these goodies before your turkey trot, get the goodies here...

**One of my monkeys will complete the drawing for the winners that weekend.

Get your plan down! We're all in it together!

Last years trot...

Brace yourselves.. 

It's obviously election day.

No matter what you do, get out there and vote.   

Oh, and stay off Facebook.    
Regardless of what happens, it's going to be a war zone later.   
It just is.

We all know this.    

But you know what?

It's all going to be okay.    

Regardless of what happens..  
It's all going to be okay. 

Countdown to T-Day and the Turkey Trot is officially ON!

We''ll run our trot and this will be us...

Happy Tuesday!

Sunday Sentiments

Hey friends!


Busting out the old Sunday Sentiments!

What a gorgeous weekend here in the 614.

Weekend Workouts:

Friday-   Crossfit....   And... my glutes are still on fire from kettle bell thrusters.   (Who does that?)

Saturday-   Crossfit and some serious stretching.

Sunday-   3 mile recovery run.        Basically a shake out run at a slow pace to get the blood moving and alleviate some serious soreness that was setting in.   

ps-  A little Advorunner tip-    If you aren't really supposed to be running or working out because you very boldly proclaimed that you were taking a rest day...   Always call it a "shake out run" and no one can question a thing.  
 They just can't.  No one questions a shake out run.   Who would do that?
 And if they do...  remember our old strategy... it's just 3 "little" miles.    No one can question "little" miles.   They just can't. 

Who else watched the NYC Marathon today?


Huge congrats to my boo, Sue, on running her second NYC marathon.     I stalked her on the app all day and couldn't decide if I should cry for her or be jealous.     I then did what any other irrational runner would do and I got online and entered the sweepstakes to win an entry for next year.    All for good measure.
The lottery isn't open yet, ya see.    But when it is... I'm thinking we all need to lottery.   

I also did the most amazing thing and went to True Rest Float Spa  and holy cow, you guys.. it was awesome.      
Have no idea what I'm talking about??

This "pod" is filled with 1000 lbs of Epsom salt in 180 gallons of water.   (ps-Remember how I'm obsessed with Epsom salt??..   I'm thinking this was kinda made for me.)  
 This combo creates an amazingly therapeutic weightless environment with ZERO stimulus.   Nothingness, if you will.       In summary, you're weightless, and warm, in a pod of no noise, no stimulus, truly... "nothingness."    
Now for someone who never stops moving, I thought there was no way in the history of the world that this could work for me.  
  But honestly... it did.   
 In fact, I almost fell asleep several times and was only woken but the jerk of my own body.    
The tension melted away and I kinda walked out of there feeling like gumby.   Remember him?
And... I slept like a newborn baby infant straight from the womb last night.      I did.

If you live here in the C-bus, you're going to need to try this phenomena immeed.   Locations at Easton and in the Powell bubble.  
There are also other locations around the country so check it out here.  

Real Housewives people... Did you know Tamra Judge is obsessed with our products?    Cuz she is.

She may or may not be a part of our team.    And....
She may or may not look off the hook ridiculously amazing.    #goals

Speaking of products... apparently Snickerdoodle AND Caramel Macchiato Meal Replacement Shakes are both sold out...   I know.

Now #dontcryformeArgentina, I've got a handful left.   However,  for those of you who missed the boat... I'm hoping and praying that they bring these back at least temporarily because I need you all to love these as much as me.

So daylight savings time...
Once again, we meet ....

Guess what else coming back???   AdvoRunner Virtual Turkey Trot is in the house.  #whatwhat

Deets to come!

Happy Sunday, friends!

So What Wednesday!? With Pics For Good Measure.

So What if I've become a full on, self proclaimed  Indians fan?   Total #bandwagon. 
I really don't like those bandwagon people like me, but... sorry it's majorly awesome and exciting.
Plus, how cute is this...?

THE perfect bandwagon fan attire.     A "fan" but not off the hook.   

So What if I'm majjjjorly addicted to the new Snickerdoodle Meal Replacement Shake?  

Holy cow.     Blend with ice and about 9 oz of water and I swear I'm on that Seinfeld episode where they thought they were eating fro yo but it all turned out to be 5 zillion calorie ice cream.    I'm really hoping this isn't a milkshake in disguise.
Seriously though,  I typically use these as a snack.   210 calories and 24 g of protein.   Super filling but not quite enough calories for a meal for me and my crazy workout agenda.     Versatile, perfect for on the go, and  amazing mug-cake style.

ps-  This is a seasonal, limited time item so you guys  know the drill....if you want them, get 'em now because they'll be gone in a hot second.

pss-  If you aren't a preferred customer yet, you've gotta get on that train stat.   You're basically losing hard earned money.

Before you order these bad boys... do yourself a large and create your account.    It's $19 but you're getting Spark and some goodies to sample AND 20% off anything you order.   Forever.  

So What if I'm hoping the 10 year old decides to abandon all other sports and become a runner?   
We spent Saturday morning engaged in a glorious little 5k and all was right in the world.   #dreamsdocometrue

So What if it's November and we should all be wearing shorts and flip flops?    It's basically 80 degrees here in the midwest and that, accompanied with all major retailers having their halls fully decked...  Well, it's enough to induce serious confusion and panic.   
The scene...  errrwhere...

So What if I'm still obsessed with my yoga girl Adriene?    I've basically convinced myself that we're real life friends.    She has a short yoga video for every possible problem.   I kid you not.     If you don't know her, you're gonna need to.     Remember at the beginning of the year when we did the 30 days of yoga program?     Will definitely be going back to that again.

For now, I just dabble in whatever my problem of the day happens to be.   However, I loved the accountability and consistency of the 30 days.   

Have an amazing Wednesday!
