Thinking Out Loud #37- NYC Bound!

If you're reading this, on Thursday, I'm on my way to NYC to run the NYC Marathon!! Insert excited/nervous screaming! NYC is my favourite city in the world and I can't wait to accomplish something I've been working so hard for.

I'll share my goals for the Marathon tomorrow. For now, it's time to link up with Amanda for Thinking Out Loud. If you don't know how it works check out her first post. Basically, it's a chance for you to get all your random thoughts out and then link up with others doing the same.

1. Besides the Marathon, I'm most excited for some "me" time while in NYC. I am going to miss London a lot (see #7) but I'm excited to do whatever I want whenever I want. I have a list in my notes section on my Iphone of some things I'd like to cross of my NYC bucket list.

2. I'm excited to meet Ashley and Kim! I've been following their blogs and interacting with them online for a couple years. I can't wait to meet them! I've met some amazing people through blogging and I'm sure these ladies are just as sweet, and funny, in person as they are on social media.

3. I am heading to the Expo tomorrow. I was told the lineups can get pretty crazy, in the evenings, and since my flights lands in the late afternoon I won't have time to make it there before 6 o'clock. I'm going to take advantage of one of the free shuttles and spend a couple hours there Friday. I'm also awaiting details of a We Run Social meetup (as of Tuesday, when I'm writing this they haven't been finalized.) I'll be sure to share on social media as soon as I can!

4. I have a promo code to share with you! I LOVE my Momentum Jewelry and, right now, if you head on over to their website, and sign up for their newsletter, you will receive a 20 percent off coupon.  I also have a 40 percent off coupon that I want to share with one of you. Simply leave a comment telling me which wrap/saying you have your eye on! 

5. I went to pick up some fuel, early this week, and came across this GU flavour. How perfect?!

6. Thanks to Jo (following my review of another protein granola) I'm now in love with Love Crunch. Yes, I get the one with chocolate in it because my stepdad says chocolate helps your brain :) This is my new favourite breakfast lately. 

7. I already miss my little boy. 8 days away from him. He is my everything. I told him mommy was going away to run a race and he said "and you're going to win it?" So sweet. He also asked me to go to the zoo and look for Alex the Lion (Madagascar reference.) Okay buddy, I will.

8. I need to say thank you. To everyone. THANK YOU for all your kind and supportive words leading up to the marathon. I'm really lucky to have so many people in my corner. You are going to help me finish on Sunday.

  1. Just saw that your suitcase got lost! Hopefully that is all you have to worry about!
