A Short Commercial Break

I apologize to those of you anxiously awaiting Part II to my story from yesterday. I got so entrenched in my tale that I lost all track of time and had to bail before I could finish. Not to worry though, everything will be resolved by tomorrow.

Before I continue though, I would just like to give a quick shout out to the people at Champion Innovation Lab. They contacted me a short while ago and asked me to review some running gear. Of course, being that I aspire to be somewhat of a champion in my own life, how could I say no, right? So I will be telling you my take on the yeas and nays of their new line of apparel after beating them up for a few hundred miles out on the backcountry (or my backyard) roads and trails, so stay tuned for that. In the meantime go to the Champion website and check out their entire line of athletic gear for runners of all shapes and sizes for all types of terrain...and let them know I sent you!

As an added bonus, they are also sponsoring 17 athletes to run this weekend at the Disney World Marathon Challenge! I have secret aspirations of participating in the Goofy challenge sometime in the next couple of years so I'm very excited to see how they and the rest of the runners do this weekend. I hear great crowds are expected at this race and I personally know friends and fellow bloggers who will either be running or spectating both days. To those who will be participating in the Disney Half Marathon, Full Marathon or both, have a great race and a wonderful time! I, for one, am on the one hand thrilled for you all but on the other hand extremely jealous! Good luck, take lots of pictures and have loads of fun! I expect full, detailed and glorious race reports (like the kinds I am famous for!) from everyone next week!

it'll be interesting to see your take on champion products as i don't associate champion with running but rather basketball and weightlifting (i guess that's the only time i was in champion gear growing up? / that's what my dad wore to powerlift?).

and you are mean for making us wait longer for part 2 :P

Hi Laminator,
How cool is that to be chosen to test out the Champion running gear!!

I have a question......What do you typically do on the weekends in New York City? It must be so much fun...never a dull moment and always something to do! We would like New York to be one of our next vacation destinations!

Have a great weekend!

I am a HUGE fan of the C9 Champion gear from Target. My husband loves their stuff too. Great stuff that doesn't cost too much! Have fun testing it out!
