Help me re-name my marathon mission! (Contest! Weoo!)

Hi!

In January I confessed my big, scary marathon goal for 2018! If you want the details, HERE they are, but the quick and dirty is that I want to work my f#ckin ass off and see what happens if I train with a goal to hack twenty minutes off my marathon time. 03:51:18….to 03:31:18. Yeah, that also happens to be a Boston Marathon qualifying time (BQ) for my age/gender. I keep calling it Mission Impossible..

AHHHHHH!!! But it IS scientifically possible! Is it realistic? Maybe…Is it likely? Don’t know, yet!

I am going to do everything under the sun to succeed, and Lifelong Endurance is my guide, as always. We will work together through a sixteen-week preparation, starting Monday, April 9th and concluding at Jack & Jill’s Marathon on Sunday, July 29th! There will be races in between, some tune-ups, some pacing practice. There will be full disclosure on how it’s going throughout. It’s going to be fun. Follow along!

Since returning from the Mesa-Phx Marathon in February, I’ve been training my brain, and working on other general disciplinary stuff like getting up earlier and going to bed earlier. I’ve been working on my time management, fitting in lots of cross-training, strength workouts, REST, and improving my diet, on top of running five days a week.

This is happening. What’s the worst that could happen? A personal best? Strong AF? Yeah, I’m not scared of that! So I need your help, because continuing to refer to my goal as Mission Impossible is not going to work for me anymore. It’s like the opposite of believing in myself. It doesn’t have a good enough ring to it, either!

Create a name for my undertaking!

A few tips..

  • should be pretty short
  • funny is good
  • swear words are okay
  • doesn’t have to include “BQ”

I will pick the winner during the first week of April! Winner will be rewarded with one pair of their choice of over-the-calf PROCompression socks from the Marathon collection! Any pair, as long as it’s available in your size! Let me know your new name for Mission Impossible by contacting me here πŸ™‚

Talk soon!

Runners Body Collective – a CANADIAN running lifestyle brand!

Happy new year! Hope you had a fun and safe holiday season!

I want to tell you about this new Canadian clothing brand that has come into my life because I love it so much. Runners Body Collective! Kristin and Neil are a wife and husband who have created this brand together. They believe in all bodies being runners’ bodies, and that the spectrum of runners includes everybody from casual walk-joggers to ultra marathoners, and everyone in between!

All of the clothing is made from ethically-sourced bamboo and organic cotton. SOFT!!!! SO soft! I have also found that all my items, so far, fit really well and are extremely comfortable, not to mention unique.

So far my favourite items are the Run Fast Hoodie and the Run Canada Shirt.

Not only do I love all the garments that I’ve worn so far, it’s so fantastic to be able to order runner’s lifestyle clothing like this and NOT HAVE TO PAY DUTY OR OUTRAGEOUS INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING COSTS!

Runners tend to love swag, and to take the love of running into our non-sweaty clothing. Runners Body Collective is the perfect lifestyle brand for us Canadian runners who want to rock our passion during a run or when NOT running πŸ™‚ Check them out!
