Hope you’re having a fabulous day! We’re almost to Friday!
Last night I decided to take my workout indoors and head to the gym. I was the ONLY person on a treadmill/cardio machine! It was about 60* out, but super windy. Wind gusts up to 30 mph = too chilly for me to run outside! But maybe I’m just a big baby.
I stuck to my “Weights on Wednesday” goal, and did mostly leg and arm weights, with 2.5 miles mixed in. It felt good, but I think it’s safe to say I’m approaching a burnout! In the past 3 months I have run: 1 marathon, 1 half marathon, 2 15k’s, and 1 10k (as of this weekend). Plus the training for each. I’m thinking after this weekend’s 10k I’m going to focus on 5k’s throughout the summer, and not so much long races. But that idea could change overnight
I received my newest StrideBox last night too! Always a great thing to come home to! Check out this month’s goodies…can’t wait to review it!
I tried the Lenny & Larry FIT Protein Bar on my way to the gym. LOVED it! Highly recommend it right off the bat! Truckee was dying to get her nose on it.
Ok so, I finally tested out an outfit from Janji! They reached out to me a few weeks ago and asked if they could send me some apparel to review. After looking into the company, and seeing what an amazing mission they have, I quickly said yes! Not to mention, their clothes are super cute.
If you’ve never heard of them, I’m thrilled that you have now! You can check out their full line at runjanji.com.
Janji is “a running apparel company that provides food and water to those in need” and their goal is to “create a community that is dedicated to running for another.”
Janji is helping support the food and water crisis in the following countries: Bangladesh, Haiti, Kenya, Peru, Rwanda, Tanzania, and here in the United States. They do this by connecting with hand-picked organizations around the world that provide innovative and sustainable solutions to the crisis.
Some eye opening statistics I found on their site…
-32.5% of children in developing countries are affected by malnutrition
-water related diseases kill 1 child every 20 seconds
-780 million people lack access to clean water
Makes you think, doesn’t it? We live in a truly blessed nation, and I applaud Janji’s mission to support those in need!
When you visit their site, you can read a description under each item that tells you exactly where funds will go with the purchase of that item!
When I spoke with one of the co-founders, Dave Spandorfer, he asked me to pick out a shirt that I liked. My eyes went first to the Haiti & Kenya long sleeve tee. He went a step further and graciously sent me BOTH the Haiti long sleeve tee and the matching Haiti shorts. Love!
According to the description, this outfit will give 16 packets of nutritional medicine to a malnourished child in Haiti! (8 packets per both the top and bottom) How amazing is that? Janji makes it SO easy to support a good cause.
Check out the Haiti outfit below:
I am wearing both a small top and small shorts.
The top is extra soft, and even has monkey holes!
The shorts have a similar fit to the Nike Tempo shorts, and have a built in liner. Loved the fit of these, and they didn’t ride up at all while I ran!
Basically, I loved the outfit, and will for sure be wearing it again!
Even Truckee approved.
Now, lucky for you, Janji has also offered to provide a 20% off promo code for readers of Sweet Miles! Just enter “swmiles” at checkout.
That’s right! How can you say no to supporting the food and water crisis now?!
