Today is the 3rd. New Year New Gear Reveal. The 1st. took place on February 4th, 2013. The 2nd  took place on March 5, 2013. You can check out that post here and here. So the idea behind this program came from Nicole at Apples and Arteries. My thought behind joining the program was this: Why not motivate a friend to stay active with a New Workout Item, and at the same time receive an item that would inspire me! New Year New Gear.

 

I received my New Gear from: Dawn at The Rushing Herd. Dawn is a runner who has a passion for sharing her love of running. Her blog shows all her completed races and all her races to come. Dawn has set herself a goal..Run 30 half marathons before turning 30..Dang…That’s legit. I have no doubts she can DO IT.

Here’s what she sent me to keep me motivated:

This box was packed with goodies, I was so excited and felt so spoiled by Dawn.

She sent these super cool DC Wonder Woman socks and a Teal colored Head Band.

007

She also sent a fun variety of energy endurance products.

008

To top of this amazing box, Dawn threw in my favorite indulgent snack, Biscoff Spread and some yummy Apple Squeeze Sauce. I have torn up a few jars of Biscoff in my days..But..this..Jar..Is ..Crunchy! Look out Biscoff HERE I COME.

Thank-you Dawn for a super fun box of New Year New Gear! You really spoiled me. Good luck with your training and marathons! I cannot wait to wear my Wonder Woman Socks! They are so FUN.

I sent some Gear to: Dani. Dani is a very busy mom who has a Half Marathon planned and is very excited about it. She also has been dealing with a knee injury, but has not let that stand in her way. I have really enjoyed corresponding back and forth with Dani. We really had lots to talk about.

The New Year New Gear exchange program is open to readers and bloggers and below I have included all the information if your interested in joining up for next months exchange.

Here’s How it Works! 

Sign up with Nicole at Apples and Arteries, her email is applesandarteries@gmail.com. You will then be paired up and exchange information. You then Shop around and put together a fun package keeping to a limit of $15.  Maybe it’s a new workout top, running socks, hairbands, a pair of shorts.  You’d be amazed at the goods you can find at the outlets (Nike), TJ Maxx and Marshall’s  and department stores. Be sure to include a gift receipt (when available).

Ship the package by prearranged date and Please be so kind as to include a Note of Motivation.

If you’re a blogger, please write a blog post about the program/gear to post on prearranged reveal date, and link-up post to Nicole’s New Year New Gear post on the designated date.  If you’re matched with a reader, please ask them to include text that you can put on your blog.

Today is the 2nd. New Year New Gear Reveal. The 1st. one took place on February 4th. You can check out that post here. So the idea behind this program came from Nicole at Apples and Arteries. My thought behind joining the program was this: Why not motivate a friend to stay active with a New Workout Item, and at the same time receive an item that would inspire me! New Year New Gear.

 

So I received my Gear from Nicole at Apple and Arteries! She sent me this wonderful long sleeve workout top. I really needed this top. I have been wearing a cotton t-shirt over my sports bra all winter while doing my cardio, and I always end up soaking wet with sweat and then I get cold when I start my weights workout. Not anymore, with this new moisture wick material I can do my cardio and go right into my weights or Yoga with a dry top. I am loving the color, its such a fun combination of baby blue and hot pink!

This material, its soft, light and comfortable.

Nicole also sent me a note to keep me motivated and some really bright pink shoe laces! I am so excited to string up my hiking shoes with these little pink cuties. She also sent me a huge jug of Raw Protein Powder. A short while back I did a post about some Things I am Loving and this protein powder was on my list. Well Nicole had a jug and really did not care for it, and told me she was going to send it my way. So after getting paired with me for the New Year New Gear exchange, she just sent it along with my Gear! Bonus for me.

I sent some Gear to Lindsay at Fit and Awesome!

So my friend Nicole over at Apples and Arteries came up with this super fun idea. A New Year New Gear Program.

Here’s How it Works! 

Shop around and put together a fun package keeping to a limit of $15.  Maybe it’s a new workout top, running socks, hairbands, a pair of shorts.  You’d be amazed at the goods you can find at the outlets (UA, Nike), TJ Maxx and Marshalls, and department stores. Be sure to include a gift receipt (when available).

Ship the package by prearranged date and Please be so kind as to include a Note of Motivation.

If you’re a blogger, please write a blog post about the program/gear to post on prearranged date, and link-up post on designated date.  If you’re matched with a reader, please ask them to include text that you can put on your blog.

Here’s My New Year New Gear Match Up.

I received my package from Kim at Barking Mad About Running. Kim just recently ran the Disney Marathon. I really think that has to be the Funnest Marathon on Earth. Everyone dresses up and just has a blast. I love reading Disney Marathon posts, they always make me smile.

004

I am loving my new Nike workout t-shirt. The color is fabulous and I love the neckline. I have a huge mound of hair and I cannot tell you how many times I struggle with pulling a t-shirt over my head. Well this Bad Boy is wide enough that my entire head + all my hair fit right through (bonus). Kinda of a weird problem I know, but its the little things like this that make me and my hair happy. Plus look at this bright vibrant color….Makes me want to sweat. Oh yeah and that brings me too this, its dry-fit fabric so it wicks the sweat from your skin and keeps you comfortable and dry.

008

Kim also sent me this super cute reusable bag. It is the perfect size for a lunch bag, and the one I am currently using is getting really beat up so I am so glad I have this to replace it with.

009

Kim also sent me a baggie full of fun goodies. Coconut oil, lip gloss, runner decals, emergen-c package, energy wafer, and a body chafing tester.

010

I have to really thank Kim, she did such a great job putting together my New Year New Gear Package. Kim, you’re the best! Thank-you so much.

I sent a package to Alex at Healthy Life Happy Wife.
