The Tuesday Happy Dance

I want to scream it at the top of my lungs…

BIG NEWS! GLO BARS WILL OFFICIALLY BE SOLD IN A STORE!! :mrgreen:

It was so much hard work to get here and I finally got my first order today for Glo Bars to be carried in a large health food store in Thornhill, Ontario. This health food store is amazing and I couldn’t be more proud to have my bars on their shelves. However, I don’t want to jinx myself, so I am going to wait until the bars are actually on the store shelves before I tell you where they will be sold! I hope that those of you in the area will stop by next week and show your support! :) I will be revealing the exact location shortly…

Whew. Very exciting morning.

In other news, I am trying to post twice a day now. I am testing it out to see how it goes! My goal is shorter and more frequent posts. I think this will be more manageable for me rather than one huge post a day. No promises yet though! ;)

Breakfast was another Carrot Cake Green Monster. Lunch was quick, healthy, and delicious…

Stems and all. ;)

I did not have time to do a health news round up while away on vacation so I thought I would put one together today to catch up on some great health links from the past week!    

Health News Round-Up

Scientists have detected BPA along the shorelines of 20 countries – Globe and Mail

How To Dine Out and Order Healthy – Fit Sugar

Are running shoes making your feet soft? – National Post

The best running apps for your iphone – That’s Fit

Mark Bittman’s top 12 make-ahead dishes – NY Times

Lift heavier weights with fewer reps to tone up and boost metabolism – NY Times

Poll: Do you have exercise free days of the week? – Fit Sugar

Now I will do my own fun poll today…

Tough one, eh?? :)

I picked win a race of any distance because that is probably the least likely for me. However, one of my shorter term goals is to come in the top three in my age group. I did that for my first race- a fairly small 10k- and I would like to do it again!  What did you pick?

Today is another rest day for me because I am a bit sore from my 10k mock race yesterday! Need to rest up in case I end up racing this weekend… :) Thanks for sharing your thoughts on how far you will drive for a race! It was fun to read. I would love to organize a big race meet-up at some point. I have always wanted to run a race in San Francisco—anyone have any good races to suggest? :)

Cya in a while crocodile…

Woot woot!!! That is truly awesome. How a year can change things, right?? I’m like you with the jinxes, so don’t disclose the name of the shop until they’re on the shelf–and then toast to your success in the aisle next to them :-)

I would love to accomplish all of the options above but I chose complete a triathalon because I’ve always wanted to do one. Hopefully this summer I will at least do a sprint tri.

Congratulations Angela! Can’t wait to see Glo bars in a store in Vancouver one day!
I just signed up for the San Francisco Women’s Marathon which is on October 17th this year, there is a half marathon as well. Best thing about this race is that you get a Tiffany & co. finishers necklace!! Its a lottery though so will have to wait and see if I get a place. Here is the link for it: http://inside.nike.com/blogs/nikerunning_events-en_US/?tags=nike_womens_marathon_2010

Lauren April 6, 2010

Congratulations!

I would also love to win a race of any distance…it is probably the least likely for me, aside from skydiving, which I would never be able to do. It seems incredibly scary.

First off: congrats! You totally deserve it!

The only ones that I haven’t done are qualify for boston (I need to live in the states for that, but I will get my chance soon enough) and win a race.

I’m running my first marathon in Paris this weekend and I’m so excited! Done tris, and I’m actually signed up for my first half Ironman in September!

How exciting Angela!!!

Megan @ Healthy Hoggin' April 6, 2010

Congrats on the BIG news!! That’s so exciting!!!!!

I think running a marathon is the only realistic goal for me out of all those choices– there’s no way I’m skydiving EVER (terrified of heights!), and I’m pretty wimpy when it comes to biking and swimming, too, so a triathlon is out of the question, too! :D

Bella (Stilettos on the Streetcar) April 6, 2010

CONGRATULATIONS!

I look forward to the day when Glo Bars are available in Toronto health food stores… actually, I look forward to the day when they’re available in all grocery stores. :)

I ask my local health food store if they stock Glo Bars every time I’m in there. I know they don’t, but I’m hoping they’ll get the hint!

Reply

Jennifer April 6, 2010

Congrats! That is really wonderful! I am so excited for you!! The Glo Bars are great! I tried your variety pack and didn’t find a flavor I didn’t like!
