Three Things Thursday

1. I will be hosting another giveaway! I am really excited about this one! Okay, I will give you a hint...Sporty Girl Jewelry! Be sure to check back in the next few days!

2. I got my haircut the other day. I went in for a trim. I walked out with a 10 inch pony tail in my hand. Yep, I donated my locks to Locks of Love. What a great program they have! Did you know that 80% of the donations they receive are from kids wanting to help other kids? It makes me happy that I can help too!


3. I found THE COOLEST thing, well, actually it was my husband that found it. Salonpas Pain Relief Patches. I am nearly 40 and I didn't know such things even existed. Salonpas sent me some free samples to try. And try them I did!! After the Mesquite marathon my knee was hurting..bad. So bad  I couldn't lift my leg without feeling pain. I slapped on these suckers and within 15 minutes I was pain free!! Oh my goodness! How have I lived without these?! I have become resistant to ibuprofen so these little babies are a godsend! The active ingredients in them are methyl salicylate and menthol. The beauty of them is that the medicine is going right to the site of the pain~ you don't have to digest pills to get relief. Salonpas is the first and only FDA approved OTC pain relieving patch. I gave a couple of patches to a work colleague yesterday to try. He came back awhile later and said, "Where can I get me some of those patches?" He said he had been a little skeptical when he put it on, but it worked great for him as well! For a list of all Salonpas' great products and where to buy them go here. I am sold! I will never be without them!

Keep running!
