Today I am partnering with Zappos to share a personal story that is inspired by the Zappos Bay to Breakers race. "Things that are valuable are not easy to achieve." "Just keep swimming... just keep swimming..., just another few miles..." "Pain is weakness leaving your body." Those are just a few things I repeat to myself over and over as I push myself during my runs. I've been running since middle school and was on the Track & Field and Cross Country team in High School. Running has always been the activity where I feel most connected to myself, the ground, and the world. Everything and everyone else (except my dog Mochi) in the world is zoned out and my mind is clear and focused. You can say that running is my kind therapy. :) I am not running in the Bay to Breakers race this year, but always love following races on social media, especially this one because people get really into dressing up. Some people dress up in groups while other do crazy out of the box stuff. (There is never a dull day in The Bay!) But on another note, did you know that Zappos carries a huge, and I mean huge selection of athletic gear, shoes, accessories, and more! They started off by building their business by offering just footwear, but now carry apparel, accessories, handbags, jewelry, and much more. Zappos is so much more than shoes! The best part about shopping on Zappos is that they have fast and free shipping, and as if that isn't enough, they also have free 365 day return policy. I love doing my shopping on Zappos and just placed a order of cute athletic clothing. Hey a girl can never have too many cute workout clothes! ;)
Until next time,
