May is my Running Month.
This May marks my one year of being a runner. May 2009 markes my first 10 mile run and also my first half marathon ever. I started training before then but last May was when I got my first medals for races and when I really started considering myself a serious runner. Ever since then I have been hooked.
Since last May I have run 5 Half Marathons (the Oddyssey Half this month will be my 6th!) I can’t believe I have run 5 Half’s this past year. That seems insane for me since I have really only been running for only a year!
In the past year I have completed 5 (soon to be 6) Half Marathons:
- Zooma Annapolis Half Marathon (My First Half!)
- NYC Half Marathon (2009)
- Disney Princess Half Marathon – Orlando, FL
- NYC Half Marathon (2010)
- Oddyssey Half Marathon – Philadelphia, PA – TBD
In the past year I have also completed:
- 1st Annual Cherry Blossom 5k – I got 2nd place!
And I also ran 6.2 Miles of the NYC Marathon – It has been a pretty good year for me in the running world! I have ran more races this year than I ever really thought I would. I have had so much fun running these races with friends and even by myself. I have learned so much about my running abilities and I feel I have been able to push myself to new limits, which is an amazing feeling.
Those are some pretty sweet stats for my first year of serious running, but it gets ever sweeter! According to Daily Mile I have run almost 700 miles this year, which to me, blows my mind. I cannot believe I have run that far. It seriously leaves me speechless, because 700 miles is FAR!
Last May started my love affair with running.
This May marks a time when my readers can check out one of my favorite running products EVER for an awesome price!
Enter Gracie’s Gear.
I pretty much run every race and go on every training run with my Gracie’s Gear Tank on. It basically rocks my world.
I love the way it looks.
I love the way it feels.
I am pretty much OBSESSED with how functional it is! This tank top has COMPARTMENTS!
The compartments are separated and can hold everything from your keys, to running GU, chapstick – It is super functional. It can hold as much or as little as you want!
I love the black and turquoise colors best! They are so great for the summer and go with all running outfits!

These tank tops will change your running life!
Let me know your thoughts about the tanks!
