For real this time (*giveaway*)

Hello again!

I am only 7 days from the last day of school! I cannot tell you how great that feels! We leave for Disney the Monday after school is out and I am so freakin' excited I can hardly contain myself :)

Not a whole lot of running has occurred since Green Bay. I decided to focus on keeping grades and school work up to date so that I could enjoy my last few days of school without a lot of stress. But Sister came home over the holiday weekend. That means a whole car-load of motivation came with her. She got Husband and I out for a run on Sunday morning before it started storming. 4 miles later (time: 41:08) and we logged it as a great run.

I'm looking to put together a "maintenance plan" for the summer. I plan to run on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday with a long run on Sunday. I don't want to go over 7 miles for my long runs. I'd like to keep my distance base, but I don't want to over-do it. As I've said before, I'm looking to take on a "passenger" some time this summer and I don't want to jeopardize anything.

And now the moment you've all been waiting for.............the BIC Band Giveaway!!!!!

To celebrate my 2nd half marathon, total PR, and 200+ posts, I'm giving you a chance to win a Thin BIC Band.

I was first introduced to these bands by Katye @ Long Legs on the Loose. I purchased a few for myself and one for Sister. I even purchased one with my own money to give to you! (That's right, I'm not sponsored here!)

In case you don't already know, here's a little bit about them from their website:

"B.I.C. Bands
gives back to those in need with every purchase!

B.I.C. Bands will not slip~ (SERIOUSLY!) They are great for any workout, a trip to the coffee shop, going out with friends, work....you name it, your B.I.C. Band will keep your hair looking FAB! They are headbands that stay in place and help others win their race!"

So, you want it?!?! Here's how you get it:
