Steamy because it is down right SWELTERING outside right now! The hottest day on record for the year so far! But no, this is not me complaining….as you all know I love the heat! The steamier, the sweatier….the BETTER! Speaking of sweat…this embarrassingly disgusting pic is brought to you by the sun and my early morning sweat sesh:
I know you like that chin drip.
And Stream of Thought because I just have a lot of things to discuss today and they may just come out in some random, jumbled up manner….so bare with me.
Any who… (any who? where did that come from?), like I mentioned above, my Saturday started off rather nicely with a RUN. My longest run post accident to be exact (but it might even be longer back than that!). I can’t tell you what possessed me to go for a long run on the hottest, most humid day of the year, but I was feeling it so I went for it. And I’m happy I did! A few podcasts and some jam sessions (I was feeling Eminem and The Zac Brown Band today….total opposite ends of the spectrum!) later, I finished up my run absolutely drenched (see blackmail above) but with a big ass smile on my face. Love the way good runs make me feel….bad runs on the other hand, well that’s a different story.
And segueing into my next thought nicely, I thought I would update you all on how I am doing post accident! I have gotten a few emails and comments asking about how everything has healed up and whether I am 100% back to normal.
As you can see I am pretty much back to normal with my activity level, but I still have a few scars (literally and figuratively) from the accident. The road rash up and down my body is still pretty visible and I am not sure if the scars will fade anymore than they already have….but I’m hoping!
I can still feel pain when I press on my head where my staples were and my ankle is still swollen, tender, and painful….but it’s funny because in some areas I can’t feel anything at all. Hoping that nerve damage will heal in time as well!
Other than that I pretty much feel great! A lot of people wonder if I had any trepidation getting back on the bike, but to be honest I had ZERO. I probably would have been back on my bike the next day after the accident if I had been physically able to! I am just more cautious now when I am riding and make sure I wear my helmet.
Thanks for everyone who has asked about it though! It means a lot!
And while I am in the spirit of giving thanks (wow, I am killing it with these segues today! ha!), I have a little giveaway for you all!
Now I know you’ve probably been seeing them all over the blog world right and have heard all about it on Twitter, but incase you’ve been living under a rock…
Chobani released a new sizes of some of their most popular flavors! 16 oz tubs to be exact!
It’s pretty cool because now you can buy multiple serving containers of your favorite flavors at once! And they also released a new flavor….Vanilla Chocolate Chunk (which had only been of the Champion variety before)!
As with many other bloggers, I was lucky enough to receive a shipment from Chobani of their new products! Being the yogurt loving family that we are, my parents and I have pretty much devoured all the tubs since getting them on Tuesday. And let me tell you….the Vanilla Chocolate Chunk lives up to all expectations. Slightly frozen it tastes like tart fro-yo with hints of sweetness from the chocolate chunks
Anyways, where am I going with this?! I bet you can guess.
You have the chance to win your own case of Chobani! And it is a BIG case.
