Blogiversary giveaway: New Balance Fresh Foam Zantes

Hi friends! How are you? Can you believe the blog will be 7 years old this summer? Time flies when you’re having fun. 

I never would have guessed that a little project/hobby I started while we were in Valdosta would grow and become the amazing community it is today. This little blog has brought so much joy to me (and our family) over the past 7 years, and has introduced me to lifelong friends, incredible opportunities, and to all of you! You are what make this the awesome space it is, and I’m so grateful to you all. Since the blog’s birth, a LOT has happened.

Just to name a few of the major events:

-We had many adventures in Valdosta before moving to Tucson

-We bought our first house

-Accomplishing two huge dreams: making a fitness DVD and writing a book

Livi joined the family <3

-We moved to San Diego and became pregnant with baby #2

Many huge milestones have been captured here on the blog and it’s been so much fun to share them with ya. Thank you for sticking around with me for all of this time! I have a good feeling about this next year, too. 🙂

I made a little survey for your feedback if you wouldn’t mind taking 2 minutes to fill it out. I’m always curious to hear what you’d like me to change or implement on the site, and your ideas and feedback help me to make improvements and include the content you want to see. Thank you!!

As another way to say thanks, I put together a week of giveaways including some of my favorite products. None of these giveaways are sponsored, and I reached out to the companies to see if they’d help me hook you guys up. We’ll have one giveaway each day this week, and next Monday, Summer Shape Up begins! I’ll have a post up this week with some planning info + tips to set yourself up for Shape Up success. 

Blogiversary giveaway time

To start off this blogiversary party, I have an awesome prize from my friends at New Balance: Fresh Foam Zantes for 4 lucky readerfriends. 

New balance  1 of 1

I’ve been using and loving the Fresh Foam Zantes for running and cross training for a few months now. I was in the market for a new running shoe, and these are PERFECT. I’m really weird about shoes feeling like they weigh my feet down, and these are extremely light yet super supportive. I’m going to order another pair so I can rotate between the two. They’re well-loved.

    OTF and several evening ‘strolls’ (Strolls count, right?)

    I’m sick today so I won’t be working out, but once I feel better I’ll resume my morning runs and incorporate some strength training (7-Minute Workout routines, perhaps) as prep for a Spartan Race.

    I liked your Facebook page!
