Recently I received word that Skin Sake was looking for Ambassadors. You may be asking, “What is Skin Sake?” Well, Skin Sake makes several skin care products that help treat and prevent skin rashes, etc. Quite obviously, the one of importance for me is their Athletic Ointment.
Why would I need Athletic Ointment? Well, I have big ol’ thighs. Seriously. I do. Those thighs rub, chafe, and get gnarly in the process of my long workouts. Athletic ointment doesn’t necessarily have to be used on thighs, but anywhere else that you may have issues. Possible problem point? Lube up! Workouts without some sort of glide would be absolutely miserable for me.
What had me intrigued about Skin Sake is their product is all natural and VEGAN. That means no animal products in the product and no animal testing. Yes!
So I went ahead a submitted this video to become a Skin Sake Ambassador…
And guess what? I received word last week that I was named one of their ambassadors. Woohoo! So even though I have a gouged up leg with stitches right now, I’ll be having Happy Skin throughout my training while I prepare for my Half Rev3!
Lastly, after I had my accident last week I remembered I had registered for a 5K this past Saturday. I debated whether to run and literally waited until the last minute to decide whether I was going to run or not. Ultimately I decided to run my race. I wasn’t able to run the Glass City Half Marathon and rock out my Team RWB gear, so with it being Memorial Day weekend I thought this would be a fantastic opportunity to make my Team RWB debut.
And boy, did I debut! I immediately found myself going out faster than I usually do, but I felt good. More importantly, I was able to keep the pace. I was totally surprised with myself, but just went with it. In the end I finished with a new PR….nearly 1 minute off of my best 5K…ever. What?! Totally crazy and I don’t know how I did it. I guess it’s safe to say that I didn’t let my sutured up leg hold me back! I’m not one to worry about time or PRs, but I will admit that I’m one happy girl.
And what may be even better than a PR? Having a guy come up to me after the race and say, “I just want to let you know it was so hard to follow you today…” in reference to having to run behind a girl in a tutu. Yeah dude, you got chicked So fun!
Hope everyone else had a fantastic weekend!
Keep Smiling and Be Grateful =)
