Stop the Presses! I am not posting some kind of race recap! I know.
Work has swallowed me up. My Google Reader looks like the I-don’t-have-an-appointment-line at a California DMV. So hopelessly long, you think you might say “eff it” and come back another time. In this case the “Eff it” = “Mark all as Read” and start over.
So, I have been chugging along with my made up training plan to Not Die in the Harding Hustle 50K on the 7th. Which most recently involved a slow 24 miles on Sunday, in sunny, dry 70s. Consumed nearly 70 ounces of slightly diluted banana nuun. With no trips to the rest room other than at mile 4 when I hadn’t yet sweat or drank much. So that tells you how much sweating and evaporating was going on. I usually drink around 28 ounces for 20 miles when its not warm and dry out. But I am finally into the taper so no more ridiculously long runs until “race” day (race in quotes because I will in no way be actually racing. Just “racing” to make the cutoffs).
Tiger Tail Massage Stick
Anyway, so, yeah, I am giving away my Tiger Tail massage stick. I recently got The Stick which suits my needs better than the Tiger Tail, which is a good product, but isn’t working for me. I got the least flexible stick because I am one of those people that needs massages to be mostly painful. The Tiger Tail is a bit to gentle for my taste.
This giveaway is entirely out of my own pocket, i.e. product, shipping, etc. It is gently used, so, it isn’t new. But it’s practically new other than some dust. If you want to win this thing, leave a comment on this post.
If you follow me on twitter (@lil_yogini), let me know in your comment and you’ll get an extra entry (look at me, being all blogger-ish). I’ll accept entries through July 1st, 11:59pm, and compile the list into a numbered spreadsheet, and use a random number generator to draw it. Shipping will be whatever is the cheapest option for me (since it’s my moola). Good only for addresses in the United States (50 states, sorry Canada, Guam, Puerto Rico – this blog makes zero dollars, so, gotta keep my shipping cost down).
The folks at ProCompression have come up with yet another awesome color of socks. I dig orange.
They are offering 40% off on this sock with free shipping through July 10, 2012 using the code SOM610.
At $30, they are an excellent value. For races, I use either ProCompression or CEP (and I own 2 other brands of socks). The others options are not as good, fit-wise, compression-wise, and style-wise.
In the interest of full-disclosure, I was offered a free pair of socks to promote their newest color release. However, I must also note that I am BS-averse and prone to brutal foot-in-mouth honesty. So I’m not just sayin’ it. It’s a good sock for $30. The full CEP socks retail for nearly $60 and rarely discounted more than 10-20%.
Ultra-marathon in less than two weeks. Eeeekkkkk!
