Wild Workout Wednesday + A Giveaway!

Friends, have I told you how much I love taper week?  Wait, you mean I already mentioned that on Monday?  So you know that I’m going to gush about having extra coffee time because we’re not running as many miles in preparation for the Indy Women’s Half Marathon this weekend?!?

Yes, it’s true – fewer miles in the morning allows for more silliness in the morning.  And snacks!  Love the snacks!

Our normal weekday schedule is run #1: 4 miles, run #2: 4-5 miles of speed drills and run #3: 4-6 miles depending on where we are in the training plan (which has been edited slightly).

This week our schedule looks like this – #1: 3 miles, #2: 3 miles {no speed drilles!} and #3: 2 miles.  Hooray for rested legs! 🙂

Instead of a wild workout today, since I just told you how lovely taper week is, I’m partnering with Busy Bee Headbands for a fun giveaway!  


I have a small head {I can borrow my kids’ ball caps with no problem} and thin hair that, when sweaty, resembles a slip ‘n slide for most headbands.

BB sparkle

I bought my first Busy Bee Headband 3 years ago at a race expo downtown (I think it was Monumental?!) …. and fell in love!  Why?  Because they are totally NON-SLIP thanks to the velvet on the back … and ADJUSTABLE!  The “Run Like A Girl” headband in the middle was my original BB headband – can you tell it’s been loved a lot ? 🙂

BB sports

The adjustable elastic was a game changer for me!  I won’t lose my headband halfway through a run anymore because it’s no longer slipping around on my head.  Or worse, have to toss a headband after only a few months because the elastic has stretched and won’t fit my head at all anymore 🙁

Plus, I have purchased these for my own girls as birthday gifts or stocking stuffers as well as gifting them to friends (both kids and adults) because they are so cute and versatile!  And in case you needed another reason to love them, they are made right here in Indiana with a complete offering online and at many local businesses and race expos in Indianapolis…

Including the Indy Women’s Half & 5K Expo this Friday at the Sheraton City Center downtown Indianapolis.
