Alright friends, this is just a quick shout out for an awesome website I've stumbled across recently called MyFiveFingers.com. They give away a pair of Vibram FiveFingers every month! Check out this website for great tips, reviews on barefoot running stuff, deals on running gear, etc. Coolest of all, you can sign up for a chance to win a pair of Vibram FiveFingers! Or sign up and win a pair then gift them to me. :) Here's the site: http://www.myfivefingers.com/fivefingers-free/
Also, here are a few of my "trophies" or "prizes" as I like to see them as from some of my more recent runs.
|A beautiful Catalpa tree flower (they smell amazing!)|
|A literal prize, a medal for placing first in my age category 20-29 in a 5K I ran May 26th|
|A beautiful sunset reflected in these clouds in the Eastern sky|
- The verse John 7:38 written over and over again in sidewalk chalk, presumably by VBS kids outside the church I ran by.
"Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them."
- On a trail that I was running on written in sidewalk chalk were a bunch of phrases and pictures that were encouraging such as, "don't give up!", "almost there!" and "the gates of inspiration" along with a picture of grandiose gates, etc. On a hot, humid, pollen-laden run, these words got me through my last mile when I was tired, hot, and felt like I was breathing through straws. :)
