Take Time Tuesday.... on Wednesday

Take Time Tuesday November 2014Katie is a blogger over at LiveHalfFull and love this girl! She does a series called Take Time Tuesday as a way to reflect on what we are grateful for and I have been wanting to be a part of this for a while. So, here it goes:

1.  My family for following me around the NYC marathon (race report HERE) 2 weekends ago.  I am still on a high from that race.  It was amazing and although I was proud I only spent 250 bucks at expo.. i managed to shell out another 250.. such a sucked for a $50 jacket with a $40 2 inch square logo.  I will stop talking about the Marathon soon.. i promise. 

2. For my son winning MVP on his Might Mite team.  We weren't expecting it and I think Josh was totally surprised.  It was awesome to see your kid excel and love something.  He starts a Basketball League this winter which should be equally entertaining for all of us.  I am not predicting any MVP win in this sport :)
3.  All of the Veterans that have served and continue to serve our country.  “This nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave.” – Elmer Davis

4. People I call my teammates.  That includes my blogging friends, local Crush Multisport group and the Rev3 AG team.  All of these groups have some amazing individuals that inspire me:  not only for their speed but for their sportsmanship and dedication to the sport. Without these people, i probably would still be doing triathlons but be much more of a loner and not having as much fun in the sport. Shameless plug: This is the last week to apply for the Challenge/Rev3 AG team so if you love triathlon and love being at events that care about their athletes --> APPLY HERE

5.  DermaSport - SBRSports is one of the amazing sponsors for the Rev3 team and I was given a set of the DermaSport products to trial.  First, I continually am grateful for my sponsors and what they have given me... esp when it is something I love!  

I have to be honest.. I was a bit leary to stop my usual “abrasive type” face wash that I have used twice a day for the last 2 decades. I have been told I have combination skin (oily and dry) so I chose the Normal/Oily option. I can see the combination skin coming out with oily forehead and then dry nose and cheeks.  I have trained myself to believe that I NEEDED a super abrasive face wash but I wanted to give Dermasport a fair go so I ditched my twice a day St Ives and used the 4 products from Dermasport.  After a month of using them, i have fallen in love with this product.  I went from using my abrasive face wash 14+ times a week to 1 time a week and notice a decrease in my dry skin and decreased need for reapplication of lotion during the day in my dry areas.   I use the face wash and toner regularly.  I will even use the mist before working out as it has just the right about of moisture before a work out and then use the lotion and eye cream when i know I won't sweat heavily and esp every night.  I can see a change in my skin from this regimen and excited I found this product as we head into the harsh winter!

6.  My dog... my dog.. my dog.  Lucy seriously have filled a void I never thought a dog could.  She is the best.  for reals.
