They grabbed on and didn't let go. It was awesome. Normally in Spinning I am always messing around with my toes in my shoes because the top of the socks bunch up, and by the end of class my socks are just drenched with sweat. I thought that was how it was supposed to be. But guess what...IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE!!"     Kelly from Leafy Not Beefy is giving away 3 Tractivity bundles. Kelly likes Tractivity because, "A small, noninterfering way to keep track of calories, steps, mileage, and more, and anyone can use it" Cheri from Fitness Shake-Up is giving away Shakeology samples, a booklet, and a blender cup.

Why is my Go Sport ID my non-negotiable item every time I head out? A few years ago, I had a friend who went out for a swim and died when she suffered a massive heart attack. It took officials a day and a half to identify her. It seems like we hear more and more about runners being hit while out on the road. I do what I can to stay safe. I usually bring my phone with me, let the hubs know where I'll be running and who I'll be with. My Go Sport ID may not keep me out of harms way, but if something were to happen, medics would know my blood type, my history of asthma, and how to reach my family. On the fun side, since you can customize your bracelet, it's great to have a phrase to focus on when you want to quit. Also, with interchangeable bands, you can match your bracelet to your outfit and they just came out with sparkly bands & a their limited edition motivation pack that you can win! A girls gotta have her priorities in order when she sweats pink, right? Run hard, but be safe." Rafflecopter giveaway (click the rafflecopter link to enter!!) *Must be 18 or older to enter.
