In Which Jenn Wrangles A Bunch Of Discounts

Nothing so impressive as my wildly cheap running shoes, but I’ve collected some deals and steals for ya! First up, a couple from former giveaway sponsors: if you have Target’s Cartwheel app (if you don’t, you SHOULD; it’s awesome), Soapbox Soaps shampoo, conditioner, and bodywash are 35% off. Yowza. Find the deal under the Beauty category, add it to your barcode, have the cashier scan it at check out, and there you are! Bonus: while at Target yesterday I spotted a hot pink running belt in the $1-$5 section (usually near the entrance; the upstairs entrance at my location) for...

The Fairest Week in Review: 9/16

Moon can’t make it today, but – IT’S HER BIRTHDAY! WEEEEEE!!! Everybody wish her a happy one! 😀 😀 D Glorious. Okay. Training last week. It started out well – on Sunday I knocked out a 16 miler at decent speeds. Unfortunately my Tuesday run was rough and my Thursday run was even rougher. I couldn’t figure out what went wrong until after the Thursday run when I realized that my bit of a cough and slight soreness of throat added up to a cold. Not a severe one – I’m already almost over it – but just enough...
