My Race Ragz Giveaway

Good afternoon!

I hope you’re all having a great day. The weather here in Chicagoland is getting cold and I am getting kind of nervous about the 5k coming up on Thanksgiving!

Breakfast

For breakfast this morning, I had a raspberry Greek yogurt topped with granola and pomegranate arils (seeds).

I haven’t bought a pomegranate in forever (basically because I am too lazy to cut them) and I had to refer to the post that I wrote almost two years ago on how to cut a pomegranate. They are easy to cut and get the seeds out, it can just be a tiny bit messy, but then you’re rewarded with delicious sweet pomegranate seeds!

Pomegranates are so good for you because they’re high in vitamin C and potassium, contain fiber, and are low in calories. I topped my yogurt with about an 1/8 of a cup of seeds and it was only about 16 calories.

Last Night’s Workout

  • 3.35 miles treadmill
  • Stretching – 10 minutes

Today’s Workout

  • Cardio Fusion Class – 60 minutes

I went on a field trip with Jacob’s class yesterday so I wasn’t able to workout in the morning. I went to the gym last night and ran on the treadmill. Then this morning, I took the cardio fusion class again. I think I’ll be taking this class on a weekly basis – it’s so much fun.

My Race Ragz

As a Sweat Pink Ambassador, I was recently given the opportunity to make my own custom running shirt from My Race Ragz.

My Race Ragz is a cool website that lets you pick out your style of running shirt from long sleeved to racing singlets.

From there, you can chose a pre-made design from their website, upload your own design, or just add text. You can even add text to the back. They have tons of pre-made designs to choose from including 5k, 10k, half marathons, marathon, barefoot running, maternity, motivational, Ironman, trail running, etc. The possibilities are endless.

Sometimes I get a bit of anxiety when faced with too many choices, but I had tons of fun browsing the website trying to find the perfect shirt to make. After trying to customize a shirt for two days, I finally decided just to add my own text to the front of a shirt. I just wanted to keep it simple. I went with the women’s energy singlet shirt and added text to the front only.

Here’s how it turned out:

I loved how it turned out. I love the pink color and how the pink looks against the white. This shirt is loose but not too loose. I tend to warm up really fast when I am working out so I love that it’s sleeveless and made out of 100% microfiber mesh. It’s moisture wicking and treated to inhibit the growth of odor causing bacteria.

I am on the taller side and have a longer torso, so I felt more comfortable putting on a tank of my own under this shirt. I love how the pink words on the tank look with the pink tank underneath. Maybe I’ll ever wear it to the store :)
