Thoughts during today’s run ... .
.
Many years ago, when I had first decided to train for my first triathlon, I had to learn to run... I signed up for an online Learn To Run program and began... I finished my first sprint distance triathlon 9 months later, then decided to take on a half marathon the next year. It was shortly after that decision that my well-meaning husband told me I didn’t have a ‘runner’s body’... and because of that he didn’t think I could handle long distance training or the race. At first I was insulted. Then I was angry.... we had words. ... My husband had been comparing my body to that of an elite marathon runner... well, no shit! ... I don’t have ‘that’ body! LOL... Then I was determined. Determined to prove that I could run a half marathon. And I did! I went on to complete several more half marathons, 4 full marathons, the Dopey Challenge (48.6 miles in 4 days), and countless triathlons. I still don’t have ‘that’ runner’s body, and I’m still working on speed....but... dammit... I.AM.A.RUNNER! ...

Don’t ever let someone discourage you from doing something because of their opinion of what you can or cannot do. #doshityoulove #nomatterwhattheysay .

And BTW... my husband quickly changed his opinion when he first saw me running all those years ago... ‘hey, you really CAN run’ 😁😆 He was my biggest supporter for everything I did. He passed away in 2008 & his ‘not a runner’s body’ comment still spurs me on❤️

#CrushItZone Challenge Wristbands (2pk)

$1.00

This past fall, I led a series of runs with Lululemon and one evening had the idea to bring glow necklaces for runners to wear. It was a HUGE hit and after noticing many runners wrapping their wrists with the glowing tubes, it occurred to me that a simple wristband could be an awesome #CrushItZone item! Bonus if it could glow in the dark.

About the same time, Audrey asked if I had considered a challenge to start off 2019. Immediately I started thinking of something super complex where points were scored for doing certain activities, but scaled it back to: set a goal for yourself and know that there’s a community cheering you on!

This is how these wristbands came to be. Simple and pairs really well with any smart watch for daily use. It serves as a reminder that we can have big goals and achieve them by showing up and putting in our best!
