This Polar Hugs collection makes me think wintery thoughts (even though it's 90 degrees). Added bonus! We color matched Aurifil threads for you!
Everything is still fresh in my eyes.
On this day,
17 years ago 246 people went to sleep in preparation for their morning flights. 2,606 people went to sleep in preparation for work the next morning. 343 firefighters went to sleep in preparation for their morning shift. 60 police officers went to sleep in preparation for morning patrol. 8 paramedics went to sleep in preparation for the morning shift of saving lives. None of them saw past 10:00am Sept 11, 2001. In one single moment life may never be the same. As you live and enjoy the breaths you take today, tonight before you go to sleep in preparation for your life tomorrow, kiss the ones you love, snuggle a little tighter, and never take one second of your life for granted. #Love

My ONLY goal this year was to finish without needing to be hooked up to oxygen like the previous 2 years in the 50K. And I succeeded!!! How did I do it? This year of all years when the heat was record-breaking? 😱😱😱
A HUGE part of the credit for my healthy finish in this grueling race goes to @polarhugusa
for a simple-to-use, comfy ice bandana that kept me cool, calm and hydrated as the mountain heat climbed over 100deg F!! Many runners had issues out there because of the intense heat and I am so grateful for such a simple tool in my kit to keep me from being one of them this year. ANF25K is in the bag. And my PolarHug will also be in all my drop bags in the future, too! Use the discount code MARTINE for 10% off your own order. ❤️🏃🏼♀️❤️ www.polarhug.com/shop
A few weeks ago I ran my first 2018 ultra. My best friend and fiancé asked me for my ABC goals before the race. My ‘A’ goal was to PR my 50k but knew that wasn’t in the realm since I have been injured. My ‘B ‘ goal was to perform well in 100% humidity. My ‘C’ goal was to finish a very hot, humid race.! I got 2 out 3. Thanks to #CarboPro
I ran well in the SE heat! I am ready to conquer this environment and have the best running year. Thanks to my best friend for always supporting me. She is one amazing being who I admire! #reiemployee #reioutessa
Please do not climb, sit on the display.....SURE!! #polarhugs
