Must be my LUCKY Day!

In the past two weeks I have been grateful and lucky enough to spend a ton of time with my family and my nieces. They held a beautiful memorial service last night for their grandpa and had just passed away and I was able to help them with it. This way they could enjoy their family and friendship of other people who knew their grandpa. I love spending time with my nieces though and being able to swim with them and see them on a daily basis though!

They are so sweet and I love being able to see them more often then I used too.

Last week when I got on to check my blog I had a comment that said that I had won two different things. Ros from Lifes a Wheeze hosted a Virtual 5K for Asthma Awareness. She also held a drawing from the people who ran the 5K to win a iTunes Gift card. Guess what....I WON!!! Wooohooo!
There has been some music that I have been wanting to download so this was perfect!

A few weeks ago I entered into a giveaway at Running Diva Mom for some Yurbuds Sport Earphones and when I checked my comments I saw that I had WON a pair of these too. These are normally $50.00 and I just won them!! Wooohooo!!! I have been wanting to get a pair of these for a while but just could not bring myself to pay the price for them.

On the running front, I have ran once last week and I am hoping to run a Fourth of July race coming up, so I better get on the ball for training. I have however been swimming quite a bit! So I know that is helping me. I am lucky to have two different pools I can swim in. My brothers and one at the apartment that I live in!

It is beautiful and hot out there, so make sure you are drinking plenty of water and staying cool. I am hoping to do a post about staying cool in the summer months coming up soon as well as a Virtual Beat the Heat 5K!

Question: Would you be interested in participating in a Beat the Heat 5K? (A little handmade medal) will be given to each finisher.

Congrats on the wins lately, that's awesome! Speaking of awesome giveaway prizes, yes I have heard about the medal display! It was shipped from the company and should be arriving any day now. I'm so excited to get it!
The Beat the Heat 5k sounds so cool!
