I’m an Ambassador!

To be honest, I didn’t know anything about sponsors/ambassadors until I started blogging a couple of months ago. After scoping out different blogs and Instagram profiles, I started to understand it. I’ve been doing some research recently on different companies that I love and would want to represent via the blog or Instagram. This morning, I heard back from Adidas and was told that I’d been approved to become an ambassador!

I’m sure you guys are all familiar with Adidas, but personally, it’s one of my favourite brands. I find their Techfit Sports Bras hold me in exceptionally well and are super breathable. The Ultra Boost isn’t hard on the eyes either.

What does this mean for you guys? This means that occasionally, I’ll have contests and promo codes for you! Who doesn’t like free/cheap stuff right? So keep your eyes peeled for posts on the blog or on my Instagram.

There’s some promos on the horizon,so I’ll be sure to keep you posted!

January in Review

I got this idea from Gingerrunningman after reading his blog post this morning and thought I’d give it a try! I generally don’t recap each month, but it’s nice to see how far you’ve come and what can be improved.


This month, I ran 32 miles. Is this low? Sure. I started to beat myself up over it, when I realized that in January of 2016, I only ran 14.3mi…so this is a huge improvement. While my mileage will pick up in February, I only plan on running 3-4 days a week since I really want to strength train more. January is an exciting month because it saw the start of half-marathon training! I’m so excited to run my first half, although I am little nervous for it as well. Stay tuned for updates!

Cool Runs that I Did: Nothing exciting, but I did change up my 10k route and found some amazing trails near my house that I didn’t even know existed.


I felt like my strength training took a back seat this month. I’m kind of disappointed by that. As I’ve mentioned before, my tiny condo gym had one of its machines out of order so I was extremely limited in terms of what I could do. But that’s soon to change and I couldn’t be more excited about it.


I’ve written quite a few blog posts this month, however this one was the most popular. Feel free to take a look if you haven’t already!
