A CELEBRATION (& A 'GLOWING' GIVEAWAY)

"Oh...sometimes I get a good feeling, yeah I get a feeling that I've never, never had before."
~ Flo Rida

When I woke up today I had this overwhelming urge to celebrate.  I was kind of giddy.  Over nothing in particular.  This doesn't happen very often so when it does, I tend to fully embrace it and to go a little nuts.  What exactly does this mean, you ask?  It means, I'm feeling really damn good and I want to spread the love.  Here are my top five reasons that I am celebrating today:  

1. IT'S FRIDAY.  A reason in and of itself to celebrate. (Is it bad that I am already this exited about Friday on the first week of school?  Maybe.)
2. Sleigh Bells just released their new single and it's so good I want to high-five myself every time I listen to it.  Their new album is right behind it, set to be released in October.  Sweet sauce!
2. Fall running is HERE - when I woke up this morning it was 57 degrees and the air was bone dry.  Goodbye heat and humidity.  See you next summer.  I won't miss you.  But thank you for making me stronger and helping me justify my need for more summer running clothes.
3. This September marks the 3rd birthday of RUNNINGWITHMUSIC.  I'm pretty excited about this as I never thought I'd keep the ball rolling for this long.  I continue to get as much joy from it as I did the day I was inspired to start it.  I love that.
4. School is officially in session.  Full day starts TODAY!  I did a little jig when I woke my girls up this morning.  They were embarrassed.  I didn't care.
5. Why not?

May you all have a day where you feel like celebrating anything and everything for no reason at all.  It's odd, but it's awesome.

RWM 'LET'S CELEBRATE' GIVEAWAY



To celebrate all of these things, I am giving away this sweet, one-of-a-kind GLOW IN THE DARK tee from Oiselle.  Seriously, what will they think of next? The Glow Mac Scoop is perfect for your morning or evening run or walk.  Just expose it to the light for a couple minutes and - bam - you're glowing.  I want you to have this shirt.  I wish I could give one to everyone.  But I only have one.  To snag it, comment below.  Tell us what you're celebrating right now.  It can be as big as a 40th birthday or completing a marathon or as small as the fact that your kids tried a new food - and they liked it.  (small for some, huge for me)  Don't feel like sharing?  Totally fine.  Just tell us you want this awesome shirt and leave it at that.  Oh, and I am feeling so good that I have a few other running-related treats to throw in this celebration package.  But, I'm gonna surprise the winner with those just to keep it interesting.
Fine print: the winner will be pick via random.org on Friday, September 13th.  Sorry, US residents only.

Listen to this:
Bitter Rivals* - Sleigh Bells  

*Wait and listen when you can turn the volume up really loud on this one.  Brace yourself...it's that good.

  8. Sorry if this is a double post but it didn't look like it went through on my phone.

    Monday is my 29th birthday, with that brings the 14th anniversary of running. I ran my very first cross country two mile race on my 15th birthday. I am celebrating a mostly healthy life and run career, hoping and praying for many more years (and miles) to come.
