Three Things Thursday
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!!!
