I think this campaign is a brilliant way for people to get on a path to a healthier life! Just another way our community helps me understand that we are making an effort to end the obesity epidemic in our country.
My run last night was incredible! I felt unstoppable and that I could accomplish anything! Definitely up there with some of my best running so far! Woohoo! Now that I'm in week 2 of training, I'm starting to feel more confident and ready to crush my goal! Also, I've been reading my most favorite runner blogs and they have me TOTALLY motivated! The full and half marathon recaps are pushing me to my finish line and that gets me excited like nothing else! Thank you fellow bloggers...I may not "know" you, but your stories are inspiring me every day!
...and now for more on Smoothie King and their campaign and new Lean1 smoothie:
