I’ve never been a natural athlete. Running is something I started back in 2005 as a way to meet people when I moved to Los Angeles. Training for my first marathon was supposed to be a once in a lifetime achievement for me. I was going to run my miles, and go back to my ‘normal’ life. But running stuck. Six years and 13 full and half marathons later, I’m still training.
But I’ve fallen into a rut recently. I feel like I have a mental block and can’t find the motivation to keep going. Exercise and eating healthy has fallen to the wayside. But it’s a new year, and with one 2011 race already under my belt, I’m pumped for the other events I already have lined up.
This is the perfect time to announce a great event: “Be Fit and Pain Free in 2011!”
Me and a guest have been invited to this healthy living training session, sponsored by Salonpas.

You also get an extra entry for ‘liking’ Salonpas on Facebook here, then letting me know in the comments!
A while back, I received a sample of Salonpas in a race goodie bag. It’s like an icy hot patch that soothes achy muscles both during and after a run. I also use it on my neck when I get migraines and it feels SO good. If I put it on at night, I can still feel it tingling in the morning. I wouldn’t be holding this giveaway if I didn’t already like this product.
Even if you don’t win, you can still go to the Facebook page and request a FREE sample! See, everybody wins!

Kathy is awesome! I still own her Claudia Schiffer workout videos and an article published in the November 1997 issue of Elle magazine where she talked about tricking yourself into running 3 miles!
Kelley – what a fun perk for all the dedication you have towards fitness. You are an inspiration to keep fitness fun and adventurous. I love to hear about your travels and witness the accomplishments you’ve made since you started. Thanks for keeping me motivated. It’s been fun to have you as a workout buddy!
