I was recently contacted by Amy, the owner and founder of Momentum.  Her and her business partner, Wendy, have blended their passion for fitness and jewelry-making experience by creating motivational, workout-friendly jewelry.  They offered to send me a motivate wrap, which has been specifically designed to be COMFORTABLE so you can wear it when you exercise.


I don’t know about you, but I can always use a little bit of extra motivation, not only while I’m exercising but also just daily reminders of why I do what I do.  There were so many inspiring sayings to choose from but I decided on ‘Love & Gratitude” because it applies to ALL the things in life.  I love running and I’m grateful that I can run.  At the same time though, Love and Gratitude are two things that I try to practice everyday whether it be at my job, at home, with family or with friends.

Now comfort is a big thing for me, especially while I’m running.  The Momentum bracelet is made with a super soft and stretchy fabric that you can barely even feel when it’s on (comes in a few different colours too – black, olive, eggplant, red, pink).  The pendant is super lightweight and made out of aluminum so it won’t tarnish if you get it all sweaty.  Huge win.

Now for the fun part – the ladies at Momentum are giving away a wrap bracelet to one of YOU.  All you have to do is check out their site and tell me what you would get on yours if you won (just leave a comment below)!  Bonus entry if you give their Facebook page some love (and leave a separate comment for this)!

I will announce the winner on Wednesday, April 23.  Open to residents of the US and Canada.  GOOD LUCK!


Thinking Out Loud Thursday #16

April 17, 2014

Well what do we have here?!  I’m ON TIME this week with Thinking Out Loud THURSDAY!  Unlike last week and the week before…  So let’s get started before I come up with some kind of lame reason to wait another day or two. Thanks to Amanda for hosting this wonderful day of randomness! 1.  How […]

I don’t think I like my doctor’s advice.

April 15, 2014

Last week I went to visit my doctor for the first time in a loooong time.  Initially I made the appointment because I was concerned about a nagging chest pain that I had for over three weeks.  The pain had passed by the time I was able to see her (it ended up just being […]

Marathon Monday: TYS10K RECAP!

April 14, 2014

Well this weekend was a complete whirlwind (in a good way, of course)!  I ran the Toronto Yonge Street 10K and thought I’d put a little recap together for this week’s Marathon Monday! I was a little bit nervous to run this 10K for several reasons: (a) the forecast was calling for rain and thunderstorms […]

Thinking Out Loud #15

April 11, 2014

Only one day late this time…progress, right?  All I know is that I am so thankful that the weekend is just a few short hours away.  This has been a loooong and eventful week and though I loved and soaked up every second of it, I’m more than ready to have a (somewhat) relaxing weekend […]

Marathon Monday: long runs teach you lessons

April 7, 2014

Happy Monday!  I hope you all had a great weekend.  Yesterday was so beautiful and sunny here!  I lucked out because I had to run 22 miles – the longest training run in my current cycle.  I learned a lot on this run so I thought I’d tie it into this week’s Marathon Monday. Here’s […]

Thinking Out Loud #14

April 5, 2014

Two days late.  Again.  Maybe I should just ask Amanda if she can change it to Thinking Out Loud Saturdays instead??  Doesn’t have the same ring to it but maybe we can work something out…. 1.  I’ve been so inconsistent with blogging these days.  I recently started filling in at work for a teacher who […]
