Neon Vibe 5K in Sarasota Promo Code Discount

by jennifer28. July 2014 11:28

I grew up just south of Sarasota, in a little town called Venice. I love Venice/Sarasota and try to get down there to visit family as often as possible, which honestly isn't enough.

When I heard about the Neon Vibe 5K in Sarasota from a high school friend, I knew I had to try to make it! And I will!!

Join me and the #TampaTrio as we run through the neon colors of Lakewood Ranch on Saturday August 23rd!

From Neon Vibe:
The Neon Vibe after dark fun-run will have you and your friends glowing crazy with color and dancing all night! Did we mention we had color that glows under black lights – and lots of it! Think of it like this – there’s 5K’s, and then there’s running a 5K in black lights with loads of color! This is the most fun you will ever have at a run!

YOU are our color canvas, and when you’re finished with this 5k run you’ll be a vivid glowing masterpiece. So tag your friends and hook everybody up with the best night-time 5K run. This is one amazing run you will not want to miss! Register for the craziness today before we are sold out in your city.

You can register for the Sarasota event HERE and don't forget to use the code GLOWBLOG to save $5 off your registration!!

I hope to see you out there!!

Weekly Workouts May 18-May 24-Plus a review and giveaway!

by jennifer25. May 2014 11:19
It was a very busy week! I loved it. I am having some issues with my Loop synching up with my H7, so my calorie burn is way off. I *think* steps are tracked correctly, though. It's a battery issue, and I have issues with changing out the batteries. I can never get the back off. My Polar Peeps say a 2 Euro coin works perfect, so I'm on the hunt to track one down! Don't forget this is the last week to join the #20X31 challenge hosted by my friend Jen over at JVKom Chronicles! Sunday-Blueberry picking!! It's a family tradition! This year we picked 10 pounds, and they lasted just a hair over 24 hours. Steps: 13,344 Monday-CrossFit. Nice workout!! But I can't remember what we did other than back squats! But I burned a lot of calories! Calories: 806 Steps: 15,810   Tuesday-CrossFit. We did a WOD called "Blackjack" 21 rounds each consisting of 21 reps with a combo of pushups and situps. It was a lot tougher than I thought it was going to be! I came home from working out and took Matthew for a nice 2 mile walk. I also thought it would be a good idea to clean and scrub out my shower, but after 210 pushups, my arms started SCREAMING at me. But I finished! I also wore my Fit Knix boy short athletic panties today. I L.O.V.E. them. They sent me a traditional pair to review a few months ago and I loved those too! I do like the fit of the boy short better than the traditional underwear, but I'm sure that's just user preference. Calories: 948 Steps: 18,950 Wednesday-CrossFit. Wednesday is typically our strength day, and today was no different. We worked on strict pullups and I'm happy to say that I was able to go down one band width! My arms were BURNING after the WOD, but I felt strong! I wasn't able to get in a post-wod walk because I promised Ella I would meet her at the library for a school field trip, and this mama always tries to keep her promises, so that's exactly what I did! Calories: 456 Steps: 12,111 Thursday-Indoor cycling. Thursday is typically my rest day, but I decided I needed some cardio in my life, so I joined my friend Hope for her 9:30am cycle class and she totally kicked my butt. After the second track when my heartrate was at 98% and Hope said "okay friends, warmup is now down" I knew I was in big trouble. But I made it. And I felt STRONG! I know I had more gear on the bike than I have ever had in the past, so that's a positive thing! My heartrate did recover quickly, it just got really high! I LOVE to cycle, but it bums me out that my Loop doesn't track "steps" through cycling or rowing. Calories: 797 Steps: 10,324 Friday-CrossFit and 5K. In the morning I did Murph!! I modified the 1 mile run into a 2000m row, so my workout consisted of: 2000m row 100 pullups 200 pushups 300 squats 2000m row I finished in 58:04 which is an improvement over last year when I scaled the run. I think I did maybe 600m or 800m for the run.Later that evening the Tampa Trio and I joined CrossFit En Fuego for a 5K fun run! Ronin was so mad at me because I wanted him to hang out and walk with me and the girls, but he wanted to run. Thankfully some of my friends offered to run with Ronin. I knew he was in good hands, so the girls and I enjoyed our racewalk, and Ronin enjoyed his run. Calories: Murph:1020+ 5K: 399= 1419 Steps: 19,420 Saturday- Color Me Rad 5K The kids and I headed out for a colorful fun run!Calories: 373 Steps: 17,456 Weekly totals: Steps: 107, 415 (wow...that's really low for me!!) Calories burned through exercise: 4,100   Now for the giveaway.... Earlier this week I received a new scale.Normally, I HATE the use of scales because they can cause someone to either have a horrible day, or a great day. I believe that we are so much more than a number on the scale, and that's part of what I loved about this scale, and why I agreed to review it. This scale offers more than just weight. It is a multifunction scale which measures your body fat, water, weight, muscle, bone, bmi, and more! I'll be honest...I haven't yet figured out how to change the settings from metric to imperial, but I'm working on it! I have been too lazy to convert all the kg readings into pounds, but I will soon.... Would you like to receive this scale, valued at over $50?? It's easy. Just enter the rafflecopter giveaway below. a Rafflecopter giveaway If you didn't win, you can order your own scale HERE.
