1) Tina kind of blew my news on her blog first...but I'm going to announce it anyway. Late last week, I was selected to be an ambassador for Chick'd Apparel.
I am super excited about this opportunity and this company. They are a Canadian eco-friendly athleticwear company who actually manufactures their clothing IN CANADA! And the stuff is CUTE! I don't apply for many ambassadorships - they do really need to align with my own values and the more I learned about this company, the more excited I got. It felt like such a great fit for me that I just had to apply!
2) I haven't written about it much lately - partly because I don't want to flood the blog with it before I have really figured everything out - but I am still sugar-free.
3) This week, I borrowed the 10 Minute Trainer video set from a coworker to see if I might like it. I have been needing strength work and, since I discovered I really can't do the Jillian Michaels videos without potentially injuring myself, that meant I was relegated to finding something short that I can do in the evenings. Turns out I actually really love these videos! I've always liked Tony Horton so it wasn't a stretch there. In a last ditch effort to use my free trial month of Amazon Prime (free 2 day shipping FTW) - I ordered the set for myself.
They should be waiting for me when I get home today! I'll do a full review of them in a few weeks but I am sure you'll be hearing more about them as I work my way through.
and a couple of Calgary-related tidbits (I know, I know...it's supposed to be THREE things thursday but these are worth mentioning.
My friend, Michelle, has arranged for a banner to be available at the Calgary Police Half expo this Friday and Saturday. It is a thank you to the Calgary Police Service from the Calgary Running Community - thanking them for all they do to keep us safe while we enjoy our races. Please drop by Mount Royal University and sign the banner if you can. It will hopefully be presented on Sunday before the race.
She has posted all of the details on her blog, Fine Fettle Frets
and - did you see? Calgary Marathon revealed the t-shirt and medal designs last night! I love them all!
