Virtual race, running blog database, compression sock sale

This is a public service announcement of sorts.

Most important for today is that it's February 29th, Leap Year! And Life as a Running Mom is having a 2.9 mile Leap Year Virtual Run. With prizes! Enter your time by March 4th, and you are in. You can use your split times if you are running longer today, which if that is the case by the way -- awesome job. You rock!

Another cool thing you should check out is 2slow4boston and his running blog database. Living in a small-volume running blogger state, Alabama, I loved the search-by-state feature that helped me find people in my area. These are people who I might actually meet running out on the street one of these days, so it's really cool to connect with them through our love of running and writing. In fact, a lot of the people I found had just run the Mercedes race with me the weekend before I found them on the database. Sounds like the makings of a blogger meet-up for 2013! If you don't see yourself in the database, add your blog so that other people can find you.

Some of you may have read my review of Pro Compression socks.


I loved them, and right now Skinny Runner is hosting a giveaway for a pair. Because the likelihood of that happening is slim to anorexic, the real reason I am posting this is to tell you that you can get 20% off by using the code skinny20 at checkout. I didn't see the awesome star ones like I have available anymore, but they do have some other cool colors, like purple and argyle.

And if that wasn't enough fun for one post. Here is what we did for fun at our house last night.

Facetimed in the same room.

This lady made salad for our dinner. From start to finish, the whole creation was 100% her idea. 

Then I found a series of self portraits from Twin A. He likes to steal my phone from my nightstand in the morning and run away before I notice. I wonder how many times he has called Russia?


Looks like this guy has a Jesus hair bow.
