What Being Injured Is Giving Me

I have to say that one thing being injured can give you is a lot of time to think. Sometimes this is a good thing - sometimes not so much. This year has been a tough one for me when it comes to injuries. The 5 month and counting hip injury really put a damper on my fitness goals this year. Then I got staph as soon as I was cleared to run. That set me back. Then the hip got super angry again, and now this (When Life Throws You A Curveball)

It's July ya'll, and I have only had a few weeks here and there this year of running consistently. It's been my worst year to date to deal with such issues. And mentally I was finally ready to run races. I had registered for both the Harrisburg and Hershey half this year. Well, we all know that's not going to happen. I'm still hobbling around in a boot. Thankfully, I was able to transfer those bibs through the registration system.

But, lately I couldn't help but wonder where does this leav…

MuvePro - Be Seen - Reflective Outdoor Gear Giveaway


Full Disclosure: I received products free of charge for the purpose of providing a review. My opinions are completely my own based on my experience.

I am known as the... umm... Queen of Neon. Most of my clothes are very bright neon, and usually mismatched. Because, honestly, I run usually early morning in low light, and I want to make sure that drivers can see me. I do have a light up vest, but I also wanted a vest that I could use when I didn't need to be lit up like a Christmas tree.

Let me show you the MuvePro Reflective Vest (psst - it also comes with ankle bands)



(Hubby snapped this pic real quick before I went out for my run.)

I know this is about the vest, but I also feel that the ankle bands are equally important. As you can see, my top half is quite bright, yet my pants are usually black. (Although there are neon slits in the back of the calves). But with the reflective ankle bands, as my legs are moving, oncoming cars (and those behind me) should be able to see me easily. Note: They were easy to adjust and stayed put. I forgot I was wearing them - and for me that's how I know that they work for me because I can't stand to have to constantly adjust equipment. 

The Vest: I loved that I could either slip it over my head, or use the buckle and unbuckle it. It was easy to adjust with the straps. I could make it tighter or looser mid run (although I didn't need to). It didn't move about, and yep, I forgot I was wearing it. It seems highly reflective. And I believe this will be my go to Vest when I'm not wearing my vest that lights up. Another bonus about this vest is that it doesn't use batteries, and it folds up flat so that I can easily toss it in my bag. 

Today's run was another cold one with a real feel of 2. And my path in places was all ice. 

But I got in some beautiful views. This is the frozen Susquehanna River that I saw along my route. 


With more snow on the way, I wanted to get in my first 6 miles (post during injury recovery). I 
was keeping a pretty good pace (just below 10mm) but the ice slowed me down, and then the hills got me at the end. But another run in the books. 



And, because I see TOO MANY runners out there without reflective gear, I would like to give one of you your very own MuvePro Reflective Vest and Ankle Bands.  Simple enter the giveaway tools below. 


Giveaway is open to U.S. Residents, void where prohibited. Must be 18+. Only one entrant per household, per address. Winner is subject to eligibility verification. Winner will be contacted via email and have 48 hours to respond before a new winner is chosen.
