Giveaway!! I’m a runner who sweats- Sweat Pink that is!

A few weeks ago I was invited to be a Sweat Pink ambassador, and look what came in the mail yesterday!

SweatPink Shoe Laces

I had a run with my Luna Chix last night, so I brought them all some laces! They loved them – who doesn’t love free pink stuff??

That being said, I have some extra Sweat PInk laces and am holding a mini-giveaway for one lucky funfitgirl reader!

Sweat Pink’s mission:

“We believe that kicking ass is best done in pretty shoes. We’ve learned that real women sweat, and sweat hard. We know that assertiveness, strength, and ambition are the ultimate feminine qualities. We concede that sometimes it takes hours to get ready, but we’re also no strangers to just rolling out of bed and going. We’re convinced that we run faster in pink shoelaces. We believe in pushing ourselves, and we believe in giving ourselves a break, too. We’re all about the rush of endorphins and the thrill of the challenge. We’re all for looking great and feeling even better. We’re committed to finding our best fit, and making it stick. Sweat Pink with us.

I think I live up to Sweat Pink’s mission because I like to have fun, but I also know when to put in the hard work. I like to run fast and get stronger, and I like to eat fro-yo with lots of sprinkles. It’s all about find the right balance in your life. That’s how I Sweat Pink.

To enter, follow funfitgirl and leave a comment about how you live up to Sweat Pink’s mission! I will randomly select a winner this Friday 10/11 at 6 am MST. Winner’s name will be posted in a “Sweat Pink Giveaway Winner” post that morning.

Winner will receive 2 pairs of Sweat Pink shoe laces – one for them self and one for their favorite running buddy :)

*bonus entry! follow me on twitter (@aimee_newman) to get an extra entry! If you already follow me, leave an extra comment that you do!

*winner must reside within the US, I will mail laces via USPS to winner. All thoughts and comments are my own, not from Sweat Pink or Fit Approach, LCC.

Golden Gallop 10K

Howdy Folks! Welcome to Golden! – yeah this picture sums it all up.

Welcome to Golden Sign

well…this picture helps sum up the course…no this isn’t a picture of a roller coaster at Disney Land…this is the elevation profile for the 10K.

They should call this race the “Golden Gallop Up and Down every Hill in Town!”

That being said, I actually had an awesome race.

My friend from Luna Chix also raced. She kicked butt as usual.

Yes, it was FREEZING…but I have a thing about racing in capris or long sleeves- just can’t do it. Anyways, after those first 3 miles of nothing but hills I had worked up quite the sweat.

Getting the Garmin ready, heaven forbid I not know how many more miles until I can collapse and die.

rockin’ the new fully customized funfitgirl HeatSweats visor. loved it.

Off I go! Clearly, I take getting a good, strong start very seriously.

I looked very under dressed compared to my fellow runners. I was honestly really comfortable though – my PRO Compression marathon socks kept my calves warm which is really the most important thing for me.

Since this was a ballon shaped course, my camera man (aka the sweetest fiance ever) couldn’t get any shots out on the course. He didn’t like the idea of just “jogging” along side me to get some great action shots.

So we took this great action shot instead.

super speedy, I know.

here’s my finish

funfitgirl 10k finishthe only thing other than the massive hills and that the Newton Running tent was not handing out free samples  that annoyed me about this race was the fact that they didn’t quite time the timing of the 10K and 5K start correctly to have all the 5K racers finish before the 10K. So I ended up bumbling into a bunch of the tail end of the 5K-ers and I couldn’t really tell who was in the 10K vs 5k  so I didn’t have a clue how many people I had to pass to get 1st place. And this 5K girl photo-bombed me with an epic long stride out to the finish.

All in all, it was a great race. I came in at 50:38, 6th in my age group. Not too shabby for a first road 10K.

Big thanks to this guy for going straight from working until 6am to going to my race to take pictures of me and tell me on the way to the race, “now just remember, if you’re not 1st, you’re last” – such a great pep talk.

I came home and used my new blender for the first time to make myself a post race margarita mixed berry with vanilla protein smoothie.

How was your Sunday Funday? 

Best pep talk you’ve gotten?

friday fav five

Happy Friday everyone! I hope your week was splendid…but now let’s hear it for the weekend WOOOO!

5 things I’m diggin’ this week:

1. The Pro Compression 40% discount (use JJ40) through Hungry Runner Girl and their $150 race entry giveaway!! I’ve only worn Zensah calf sleeves so I’m excited to try out the PC Marathon sock – they’re on their way! I’ll be sure to do a gear review of them when they arrive…I’m hoping to wear them for my 10K next Sunday.

2. Fall-ifying my apartment is going really well (special thanks to my mom for sending me pumpkin and fall leaf themed EVERYTHING…oh and lots of treats)

3. cooler weather – it’s finally starting to feel like fall here in CO. Busting out the scarves and cute boots.

4. shopping for some new running skirts…looking for the perfect one to do my half in. I’m considering either the sprint tech skirt from Moving Comfort or Nike Rival skirt.

5. candy corn and dark choc m&ms – enough said

ALSO, this week I was invited to be a SweatPink ambassador!!! Super excited about that. What a great community to be a part of. I’ll blog more about that later. oh and I ordered SweatPink shoe laces for all my Team Luna Chix ladies.


Anyone have a favorite running skirt I should check out??
