Summer Fit Gear Exchange ~ Canadian Sweat Pink Ambassadors

Oh Monday morning, we meet again! So bitter sweet after 5 days off work as I had a mini vacation since Canada Day. I’ve run outside a lot, had a yard $ale, spent the weekend with my little family, date night with my husband and swam in a lake with our girls. Best 5 days off in a while! I even took a mini vacation from social media!!!!

I’m excited to share the Summer Fit Gear Exchange with you. A few Canadian Sweat Pink Ambassadors decided to do a Summer Fit Gear Exchange last month!

Janelle from Wholly Healthy Blog sent me a package! First off, my reaction was “Who’s sending me stuff from the Running Room” and then “Did I win something I don’t know about”. I also wondered if Sai had bought me something for my birthday from the Running Room and had it delivered to the house…but nope! Janelle was super on top of her gear exchange and got me ALL of this:

Buff headband; Asics headbands (3), GU brew; honey Stinger and Ultima Replenisher and a lovely letter.  When I finally opened the package and took everything out, my reaction was “Holy shit”!!!! Seriously, she got me all this! I really was blown away! I absolutely loved everything and will use everything! Thank you Janelle so much!

I got to buy for Laura from Healthy Foodies, Losing Booties! I really wanted to find something related to Zumba since that’s one of her loves (besides her husband and two cute kids). I didn’t have any success with the Zumba theme but managed to put together some other items I thought she would like!

Vega bars and vega hydrator (my favs), a purple towel for after working out, salt water taffy after I saw she liked it, a gift card to Starbucks, colourful hair ties and a book. The book says “girls just wanna have fun!” on the front and I wrote a bunch of quotes and a few recipes in it with the plan for her to add to it.
