2.  With the NYC Marathon just around the corner, I made sure to order my pace bands from Races 2 Remember.  I wore one of their bands for Boston earlier this year and hit my goal!  They customize your pace for the race course elevation and offer a bunch of different race strategies.  I’m a big fan of the negative split band. And, you get 3 bands per order, so you’ll have options come race day!

3.  I’ve written before about my love for Boom Chicka Pop.  Well…they came out with Candy Corn Popcorn and it’s SO good!!!

    Happy Birthday Jason! I loved that Oiselle post also, it always fascinates me to read what elites do in a day. On one hand it seems so crazy and fun and cool, and the other it all seems so normal (they really are just like us)!

      Exactly!!! I loved reading about Kara’s day!

    That jacket looks amazing! Love the style, and what a great way to be seen while you’re running in the dark – OR while it’s light out! Love it.

    Love the Saucony jacket, and love that you can get a split band based on the course’s elevation! Happy birthday to your hubby!

    Happy Birthday Jason! That popcorn looks like trouble. I’m a sucker for seasonal eats. I love the idea of a pace band. Happy Friday Jen!

      Thanks so much!!!!

    Of course happy birthday to your hubby.
    Great idea to get personalized race bands for negative splits the can accommodate certain race terrain! I will definitely be looking into that tip. I usually pick up the race bands from Cliff Bar peeps at the expo, but they have just straight splits which seems hard for me to do. Thanks Jen!

      That Saucony jacket must be a prety penny since it looks sooooo good.

    Happy birthday to your husband! Love that Saucony jacket, and I’m thinking about ordering the race bands for my half in March! I love having a visual to keep me on track.

    • http://www.jenchoosesjoy.com JenChoosesJoy

      The pace bands really help me! It keeps me focused the mile that I’m currently running and the marathon isn’t as overwhelming.

    I love that jacket! I have the Nike version and I LOVE it when I’m in the dark. You can tell it works because cars move way far away! Enjoy your weekend!
