I Need Your Thoughts!

Happy Monday, everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend. We ran yet another race - the Re-Run Run. It's a benefit for The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and all the t-shirts, medals, food, etc. is donated from other races so that all the money from race registrations goes to the Society. The fun side of this is that you don't know from which race your goodies will come. We ended up with the Chicago Distance Classic t-shirts and finisher's medals - luck of the draw and very exciting since most 5Ks don't have finisher's medals! We both won our age group, so so both also got a very nice medal from the Catalina Island EcoMarathon, which looks like a great race! It's partially on trails, which is so much more interesting (albeit challenging) than a purely road race.

Here's where I need your thoughts: I'm planning on starting a feature on Wednesdays called Wellness Wednesdays (I'm a sucker for alliteration.) I want to provide the crafting community with health and wellness tips specific to our needs. In case you're wondering, I'm also an ACE Certified Personal Trainer, though I should take this opportunity to point out that nothing on my blog counts as medical advice and I assume no liability should you attempt anything you read here. ;-) So does anyone out there have any diet/exercise/fitness/wellness problems they'd like to see discussed here? I'm open to suggestion and welcome your input! Thanks!

Have a great day!


  1. Well, my dear hubby has asthma..I think its called..I don't remember, lol. But it really acts up when he tries to run or excerise too hard.. Its something I'd love pointers on, as we both want to get into better shape this summer.
    And congrats on your win, amazing!

  2. Thanks, Lilly! I have strange allergy induced asthma, so I feel your husband's pain.

  3. Wellness Wednesdays sounds like a great idea! I'd like to see tips on how to fit exercise into already packed days or what to do for exercise during rainy days here in Oregon. Healthy snack ideas are always great too!

  4. Ah, the rain in lovely OR! Great ideas, BeadedTail!
