Obviously this one comes as NO surprise... I mean, have you looked at my Instagram?! It seems like every other shot is of my wrist with a Garmin (or two) on! For as long as I have been running, I have been rocking Garmin (okay, maybe that's not 100% true... but as soon as I knew that running was going to 'stick' it was my very first SERIOUS running purchase). So when I was asked a few months back to be a part of an upcoming campaign I was FLOORED! Sure I have been an ambassador with them for a while, but THIS was the BIG LEAGUES! After all the details were set, I went to Long Beach and spent an afternoon with the team (Katrina, Julie and Jake are AMAZEBALLS). Until now I had to keep it hush-hush, but my first clip was released this week so now it's fair game! PS I was asked to write a motivational speech to the "pre-running Carlee". Maybe the words I wrote will strike a chord with you and help you #BeatYesterday!
I know this series has been out for a few months now (and it has already been renewed for a second season), but I haven't mentioned it before and since I'm going to a live taping tonight I thought it was the PERFECT time to throw it on my list! Not only is a friend on the show, but it hits you right in the nostalgic heartstrings! I love that they ham it up and play to the corniness at times, but at the end of the day focus on what's important: friends, family and those around you!
If you're like me, you have a cupboard overflowing with reusable bottles. Don't get me wrong, reusable bottles are AMAZING, but although I have long since moved away from disposable plastic water bottles, I've started hoarding reusable bottles (most of which I am less than stoked on). With that being said, I think I have found my new go-to bottle and hopefully won't be acquiring new bottles anytime soon. My new found love is the ALEX Bottle (which stands for 'Always Live Extraordinarily'). I LOVE that the bottle twists apart in the middle. It not only allows you to clean the bottle easier, but there seems to be so many uses outside of your standard reusable bottle [you can use the bottom half as a cup or bowl and the whole thing as a cocktail shaker] AND it compacts inside of itself for traveling and storage! Thanks to Kickstarter (and the awesome backers) this bottle that was once an idea is now a reality for you and me!
How many reusable bottles do you own?
