I have the post-weekend blues. I looked forward to this past weekend for so long; and now, just like that, itâ€™s over!
Side note: A few people asked if BabyHTP was a boy because some of our shower gifts â€“ but we really donâ€™t know the sex and wonâ€™t until birth! Popular vote amongst family is overwhelmingly leaning male, however.
Iâ€™ve also suffered from post-marathon blues â€“ you train so hard for one event and then â€“ suddenly â€“ POOF! Itâ€™s over. I hear some women get post-wedding blues, but I donâ€™t think I did. I was too relieved to have the stress of planning a wedding over! Hah.

Itâ€™s that time againâ€¦ FAQ Monday! Reading your fun answers makes my Monday a little brighter.
Have you ever won a giveaway or prize? Once, I won $50 on a scratch-off lottery ticket! And another time, I won a sweet giveaway that another blogger was hosting â€“ I got mailed a ton of running supplies. But the coolest that I ever won was the Amway Positivity Project Awards. It was an online contest that was entirely voter-driven; I begged yâ€™all to vote for me and, since you are all totally awesome, I won! I got a $10,000 check, which I used to created a scholarship fund for Girls on the Run of Charlotte. Because of YOU, at least 70 local girls who couldnâ€™t have afforded the program got to experience the magic that is GOTR! Plus, I got to meet John Tesh (that radio dude). Pretty neat. I still have that giant check in my garage.
What is one piece of workout equipment or clothing you swear by? I love the Moving Comfort Fiona Bra (itâ€™s my personal pick of sports bras for large-chested women). I also really love my CamelBak, a hydration backpack, which means I donâ€™t have to carry my water bottle with me when I run. I got a ladiesâ€™ fit CamelBak so the profile is a little slimmer and itâ€™s more comfortable on my back.
Do you believe in psychics? Have they ever correctly predicted your future? When I first started dating the Husband, his mother paid for me to go see a psychic. Even though I didnâ€™t believe this guy was legit, it made me SO nervous! Anyway, he was completely wrong in all of his predictions (and I noticed that it was easy to subtly lead him into certain predictions). I wonâ€™t say that legit psychics donâ€™t exist; Iâ€™ve just never actually met one. Also, Iâ€™m not sure how much of our future is pre-determined; I always wonder if things are â€˜meant to beâ€™ or â€˜fateâ€™ or if they just happen the way they happen.
Your turn! Ever won a big prize? What workout gear do you love? And has anyone correctly predicted your future?
