A little bit of Hodge-Podge

Well, today is ANOTHER snow day! These kids have been out of school all week long. I know they're loving it though. This morning the temp is -5. That's just crazy!! I  try to think of my future home, and it makes things a little better. Haha!

Now for a few random things.
My darling friend Hanna, recently started her own business with Rodan+Fields. She sent me some samples to try out. I had never even heard of the company before she told me about it. I tried the micro-dermabrasion paste, and I loved it. My skin was so soft, it was awesome! They have great products and it's also a great business opportunity as well. For more info, check out her website here.
Not long ago I received an adorable bag from Fitmark Bags. Well, I just found out they launched a giveaway for one of their Limited Edition Nice bags. I love mine, and I know you would too! Enter giveaway here. Contest ends Feb. 18.

I recently found out about the Fight for Air Climb, and saw that it's coming to Louisville! I had heard about stair climbs before and always wanted to do one. So, I signed up! It'll be next Saturday (the 1st), it's 38 floors, 770 steps!! I'm really excited about trying something new. I asked on my facebook page if anyone had done one, and got some great replies and advice. Someone had done a 66 floor and an 86 floor stair climb before!! They said if you can do a 5k, you can do this.
 I'm one of those people who uses the elevator instead of the stairs (I know, I know), so this should be interesting. I can't wait! I do have to raise $100 for the American Lung Association by Feb. 1, if you're interested in donating $5- $10, please do so here! Thank you!
I have 24 miles on the schedule tomorrow. It's supposed to warm up to 23 degrees. It might be a treadmill run instead! Have a fabulous weekend, friends!

Have you done a stair climb race?
What's your weather today?

  2. We are in the middle of an "inversion weather pattern" so it's cloudy and cold. BLAH!

  4. They have one of those too. I hate hills and walking up stairs is so much hard for me that running.
    We laughed in DC when we were all about to run a full marathon in 2 days and the 3 flights of stairs had us huffing and puffing. I will be interested to hear how it goes if you try it, it may motivate me.

    1. Oh, I know what you mean!! I'd rather take the elevator than walk up 2 flights of stairs. So, this should be really interesting!
