(3 things) Nike Women's DC, Branding and Peppermint flavor!

For the few minutes you are here visiting my end of the information highway, let's pretend it's Thursday ;) because WOW has this week flown! 

The Nike Women's DC Half lottery happened this week. I was super excited when I saw the charge on my credit card- until I realized I didn't budget for all that money to be taken out. Ouch! There had better be a Tiffany's necklace at that finish line, is all I'm saying. I've been lusting after those necklaces since I started running; and I knew there was a reason I didn't splurge on one to commemorate NYCM (although, I ran the freakin' NYCM! I want a Tiffany apple!. .. when I have money again). Moving on. Our group registration name was Team Mean Girls and we are already discussing costume options. When this photo was brought up:

I knew we were all kindred spirits!

Fun Trivia- do you know what Nike Women's and Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party (at least it's awesome new logo) have in common?

A rockstar designer
I'm a huge fan of this lady's work, so no wonder I fell in love with both designs without even knowing who designed it. 

Speaking of being poor, another reason that I am right now keeps haunting me through the mail: Thanks, Cyber Monday. But my favorite purchase? (2) 8 packs of Peppermint Stick flavored Gu. Why isn't Peppermint-flavor a permanent seasonal flavor?! I'm looking at you Clifbar; bring it back and no one gets hurt!

What's up in your world?


  1. Congrats on getting in the Nike half! What is a Tiffany's Apple? I wanted to purchase some peppermint Gu with an online order I made last week but it was out of stock, so I went with the vanilla bean. I hope that one is good! I would have loved to try the peppermint clif bar! I love peppermint and gingerbread flavored stuff this time of year!

    1. Sorry not to be clear. Tiffany and Co. does special commemorative items for the NYCM and one of them is a charm in the shape of an apple with the race logo on it.

      Peppermint is my favorite but it looks like it was just a last season thing. #annoyed.

  2. Congrats on getting into the Nike Half! I'm sort of regretting now entering the lottery...maybe next year!

  3. Congrats on getting into the NWHM - I was accepted too! I was more excited than I've been in a LONG time when I got that email - yay!

  4. Congratulations! I really wanted to do this race, but 4 Half marathons in 4 months would probably be a bit much for me.

    Congratulations again and good luck! :)

    1. That sounds like my schedule! I have 6 in 6 months. . . opps!

      Thank you :)
