Early Morning Run Favorite Things Giveaway Winner

I woke up this morning with a miserably upset stomach. I still got up and went to the gym but couldn't finish my normal bike workout and cut my entire workout really short. I was exhausted and couldn't keep up. I think it's a combination of being tired from the long weekend in Boston with my family, getting home kind of late last night, dealing with the stress and unknown of starting my new job today and the fact that a week from today we'll be waking up in our new apartment for the first time. It's a lot going on and I think I'm just getting a bit stressed out about it all. Hopefully today will go really well and I'll feel much better and relaxed about the new job. I held my last job for 6 years, so I'm not used to starting new jobs!

We had a great time in Boston. I don't have much time now, so I'll write more about it later.

On to the giveaway.....

The winner is (chosen by random.org)..............#17 Katie at Health for the Whole Self!
I love Katie's blog and have been reading it for quite some time. You should go over and check it out!

Just found your blog. I am glad you got out and enjoyed some Boston running. I am from Boston and am training for a Boston 1/2 marathon in October (and hopefully the Boston Marathon someday). I I look forward to reading more about your running experiences.

big deep breathes or yoga is how I deal with stress when I can't get out! I also try to read a few affirmations, like all is well and everything is working out
