I'm going to admit: It was a long work week for us mother runners (and I suspect I'm not just talking re: Dimity and me). So this post is going to be a few quick hits, then I'll announce the winner the lucy activewear givewaway.
In case you missed it, yesterday's post was a call for original, clever, witty slogans for a new running tee or two. Please give it some thought, maybe as you're sweating on your treadmill or folding laundry.
Our December newsletter, complete with tips that'll keep you committed to fitness during the holiday craziness as well as a special treadmill offer, comes out Monday. If you're not signed up to receive our monthly newsletter, click here to check that off your to-do list.
And just have to share new recipe I made for dinner tonight (to fuel me for Saturday morning's long run): Penne with Brussel Sprouts, Chile, and Pancetta. I usually DETEST Brussel sprouts, but NYT's Melissa Clark made them sound so appealing in this recipe. One word: YUM! (And I subbed red pepper flakes and bacon for the chile and pancetta, respectively.) My new carb-loading fave!
Now onto more good stuff: the lucy activewear Brave the Cold Jacket, Tight, and Run Top. In the coming months, you need these cute, critical pieces that work as hard at keeping a runner warm as looking good. The chosen-at-random winner, plus the sign on her runs that tells her it's wintertime in her part of the country, is:
Ann Zito: "The black ice on the trails around my neighborhood. I have to keep my headlamp pointed right down in front of me, about two steps ahead, or I’ll totally wipe out. I like it better when it snows, because then I at least know what to expect!"
