Celebrate Week #8: Cap City Half Marathon Training Report

This week, Celebrate Giveaways! 
Wrist Saver

Manna Bread
I have been really lucky lately, which is totally unlike me! First, I snagged the Personal Savers Wrist Saver from I Run … Because I Can. I haven’t had a chance to try this out yet, but I am super excited about it! I previously carried pepper spray on my fuel belt, but it constantly bounced out of the holder and I wouldn’t discover it was lost until who knows when. I tried on the Wrist Saver and it is very comfortable and features an LED light and ID tag too. Love it. I was also fortunate enough to win the Manna Organics Bread Giveaway from Women’s Endurance Gear. I was hesitant at first about how the bread would taste, but I had always wanted to try sprouted bread. Also, I was worried because I don’t eat bread very fast, but when I found you can freeze it, I was in! I selected the Banana Walnut Hemp, Millet Rice, Multigrain, and Sunseed. I have tried the Banana Walnut Hemp and Sunseed. Absolutely. Delicious. I don’t want store-bough bread anymore! It costs $15.40 to build your own box of four varieties, and I think this is where I will get my bread from now on!
My training week was okay. Unfortunately, this was one of those weeks when my non-running life completely overshadowed my running life. I didn’t get as many runs in as I would have liked and it was beautiful and mild here! I am so excited that my Lucky 13’s ran six miles on Saturday – a first for many! They have come a long way in such a short amount of time.
