3-Day Giveaways!

22 Jul

A few posts back I talked about how much I love the Energizer® Energi-To-Go portable phone charger that I got from Energizer®. I’ve only had it for about two weeks and I can already tell you about how it’s come in super handy when I was in a pinch. Yesterday there was a pretty bad storm making its way through Connecticut. I was driving home from a meeting and all of a sudden there was torrential rain, wind whipping through and I could barely see. I had to take three different routes to get home because of trees that had been blown over and into the road. At points I was driving in water that must have been at least a foot deep. I kept hearing reports on the radio that there were possible tornado touchdowns in the area. I finally pulled onto my road only to find it blocked by a large branch that my neighbors were trying to drag out of the way. When I finally made it to my driveway and got out of the car, my phone was ringing off the hook with my family calling because they heard the reports of tornados in Bristol (where I live). I told them I was fine, the neighborhood was a mess and we had no power but I was OK. As I was on the phone I heard that really annoying beep that tells me my phone is about to die. And I had no power. I got a little nervous because I knew Paul wasn’t home yet and my parents would be calling back again to make sure everything was OK, and I needed my phone!

Then I remembered about my Energizer® Energi-To-Go charger! I plugged that in and I was back in business. I was able to take Lily (our dog) out for a walk and stand outside with the neighbors and not have to worry about Paul being able to get in touch with me. It was such a relief to have it when I needed it most.

And you can have one of your very own Energizer® Energi-To-Go portable chargers because I’m giving one away, compliments of  Energizer®! I’m in Boston ready for the 3-Day for the Cure and starting tomorrow morning I’ll be walking 60 miles with thousands of other dedicated walkers! When I get back to Connecticut on Sunday night I’ll add up the points and announce a winner!

Welcome back sun!

18 Mar

It’s been such beautiful weather out for the past couple of days I thought TODAY would be the perfect day to get started on training for the 3-day (and the 9k I’m running in May) so I went for a run after work. It was freeing and wonderful and painful! It felt great to be out there again but I know I’m a long way away from the shape I was in pre-winter. Having been born in Florida, I’ve always hated winter and craved the sun and warm weather. Yes Mom, I know that I only lived in Florida for 6 months and no, I don’t remember living there at all BUT that stuff sticks with you, right? It’s in my blood. The infant me came out of the hospital into the sunlight and said ahhhh.

But anyway, so training has officially begun. The goal is to run or walk at least 3 times a week for the next month or two, then kick it up a few notches after the 9k at the end of May before the 3-day in July. I’m a little nervous of walking 60 miles in Boston (not so many trees) in late July. Someone remind me to pack a gallon of sunscreen! I got a decent sunburn at the walk last year in DC… and that was in October, and one of the days it was rainy.

I’m looking forward to training walks in Bristol. Moving there in a couple of weeks into a nice neighborhood and will be able to take walks with Paul (boyfriend) and Lily (adorable dog). It will be fun to explore a new place and not have to stop every block for the WALK signal to change 🙂

Fingers crossed the sun hangs out for a while!
