Three Things Thursday

1) Another iRun mention

I found out this morning on Twitter than not only did my Relay interview make it into the current issue of iRun Magazine.  They also included something I submitted about my medal rack.  Colour me surprised! They had never even acknowledged that I had submitted anything!  My mention is at the bottom of the article.  

2) Weight is falling off now

After hitting a really tough plateau post-marathon, my Canada Food Guide Challenge has reinvigorated my weight loss.   I don't expect it to continue at this rate but I have dropped close to 5lbs in just over a week and really don't ever feel truly hungry.   Imagine if everyone followed the Canada Food Guide and ate real food like this!   I don't think we'd have an obesity epidemic and I think real food may dominate the grocery stores again as the demand for crap calories diminished.   Ya - I know I'm dreaming here.

Another interesting phenomenon of this challenge has been my tastebuds rapidly changing.  Just yesterday, we had a little office celebration and I treated myself to a small Crave cupcake...only to find it took me forever to eat it because it was FAR too sweet.   I had a similar reaction to some grape tomatoes in my dinner as well...flavours are really starting to come out that I wouldn't have noticed before.

3) BIG Running Gear Sale this weekend in Calgary

The Tech Shop is setting up their big annual sale at Mount Royal University this Friday and Saturday.  It will be at the package pickup for the Calgary Police Half. I could be wrong, but I believe they are doing the sale now instead of during the Mothers Day expo....

The sale is open to the public. I am totally planning to see if I can score some deals :)   So don't y'all go buying up the size 11 neutrals on me!!!

  2. Crazy how that can work, eh? Both me and my coworker feel alot more energetic - that's for sure :) I'm hoping the energy will be enough to get me to 2:15 on race day :P

  6. Congrats on the weight loss.

    My tastes are changing as well. I had a spoon of pb and marshmallow cream last night. I just totally caved.. and after I literally felt sick. It was just 1 spoon full, but it was so sweet. In the past I could have ate half a jar!

    1. I hear ya. I had a spoonful of PB tonight myself and found it pretty sweet. Guess that will help me transition to more natural nut butters :)

  7. Picked up 6 pairs of balega socks and a Nathan velocity hydration belt at 50% off. :) No change rooms so you may want to wear thin layers so that you can pull clothes over to try them on.

    1. The nathan belts were such good prices. I picked up some Balega socks too, plus some Adidas and Injinjis. They were such good prices. Unfortunately my quest for a rain jacket failed. The only cute one I liked, didn't come in my size...
