First things first – the winners of the Shoewallet giveaway!
Petite Noonie said… I’m totally embarrassed to admit that I don’t carry any identification with me when I work out.. i usually go for long (1.5 hour) walks though a wooded area that involves me crossing a few busy streets. If anything were to happen to be, no one would know how to contact my loved ones… I definitely need a shoe wallet!
- Maggie M said… I don’t carry an ID with my when I workout, but I know that I should. I’m actually running my first 5k with a friend this weekend (YAY!) and I’m worried about how I’ll carry my ID, Metrocard for the subway, and money to buy for our celebratory breakfast after we finish! If I don’t win I might have to figure out if they sell shoewallets.
- LindsayK said… I just took up running recently and don’t carry anything with me! this would be so great to have – good giveaway, Caitlin!
- Melinda H. said… Hello! I carry my keys in my sports bar which is actually reallllly gross. By the time I take them out to let myself back inside my house they are absolutely soaked in sweat! This is a pretty sweet giveaway!
- Rosalie said… Oooh those look super convenient. I do not usually carry my ID, but I have a little fish-shaped caribeaner keychain that I put my key on and clip it onto my sports bra. It makes kind of an unsightly lump like I’ve got something growing out of my shoulder… And lately I’ve been running around the local high school track where I leave my ID in the car and dump my keys, water, etc. on the football field in the middle of the track. Very convenient, but makes for a boring run.
Girls – shoot me an e-mail at email@example.com and I’ll get the Shoewallets to you ASAP! 🙂
In other news…. I did something I never do tonight!
Keri has created a new site called Breaking Glass, which was inspired by Operation Beautiful. Breaking Glass is all about personal enrichment and growth by doing or learning something new every day. It could be as simple as not wearing makeup for a day or trying a food you are uncomfortable with. Or, it could be as complicated as running a marathon or even continuing and completing your education.
My first Breaking Glass moment was going make-up free to my evening job!
This is a pretty big deal for me because I usually put on at least a basic "make-up" face before leaving the house. I even wear make-up to RACES! I guess it’s just a habit; plus, I’m a little self-conscious about my dark eyes and uneven skin tones. But today, I thought: "That’s silly! Make-up doesn’t make me who I am! And who CARES what my skin looks like, anyway!"
It was LIBERATING!
Plus, I was wearing my Operation Beautiful shirt (it’s so cute!) so I felt beautiful and strong regardless!
My run did NOT happen today. I’m kind of annoyed at myself but I was up at 5 and didn’t get home until 8:15… I’m not sure that’s an "excuse" but it’s a good enough reason to me! :) I will be able to run tomorrow, though.
Here are my eats:
A unphotographed Kashi TLC bar (work was insane and I actually forgot to take a picture!)
A bowl of granola and banana:
And dinner was 1 cup of creamy potato soup with a Wasa cracker and a side salad.
What Breaking Glass moments have you tackled? They can be small things (like no make up) or big ones (like running a marathon)!
My biggest 'breaking glass' moment was moving cross country to a state where I literally did not know a SOUL to go to grad school. One year later, I couldn't be happier!
What a great concept–and a great icebreaker as well!
