My Running Secret

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Walgreens for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

It feels like summer now here in New England. I spend more time outdoors now running. I started running this year and I am having a lot of fun doing so. Finally winter is over and spring is doing a great job on my training. It’s a little unusual for us here in Maine to get a really hot weather but the sun is usually gorgeous just like anywhere else.


And just like anywhere else, the sun’s effect on my skin is a little scary so I take extra care and precaution. That is why I never run without sunscreen. Correction, I never run without my Walgreens Brand Triple Strength Glucosamine Chondroitin Complex Dietary Supplement. It’s one of the Walgreens Brand Health & Wellness Products that their pharmacist recommended to help me achieve stronger and healthier bones and joints. I like this product not only for its health benefit but for its price as well. It’s cheaper and more affordable compared with other leading brands.


I like shopping at Walgreens for all my health and wellness products because….
Purchase of every Walgreens Brand Health & Wellness Product supports bringing preventive wellness services to local communities through the Walgreens Way to Well Fund™.
a. Walgreens will contribute up to $3 million annually to the Walgreens Way to Well Fund™.

Things to Do... or Not!

Wow, time flies so quickly indeed. I can't believe school is almost over. Now what will I do?

I have lots of things in mind like...

 gold panning... [wooohooo, hubby will be happy]

Oh well the list could be endless. The million dollar question is.... will I be able to do that?

My Reliable helper

It’s not just springtime here, it’s mud season too. Yikes. I live in Maine, so I am not really surprise anymore. In fact, I am actually expecting it that is why I have not tucked away my rain boots yet. I know I will need it every now and then.
Well, rain is part of spring. Flowers need water to grow and bloom. But too much of it is not good. Thunderstorms and hurricanes left and right made a big mess in our cellar. Water started leaking leaving a huge damage on our carpet. Good thing there is water damage clean up austin and best carpet steam cleaner austin… at least I don’t have to worry about the aftermath of these usual occurrence that are part and parcel of spring. I just need to go online and check out and I will be all set.

Well, I am not really whining, I love spring and I love the rain too. But too much is not ok. So for now, I will just enjoy the mild weather. At least it’s not freezing cold like winter or fiery hot like summer. And even if it is dump and soggy and muddy… at least I know where I can get the help I need. And I am all set.

Finally, I got the rare chance to blog here. Yeah, I was a bit side-tracked with a lot of stuff and goings-on in my life right now and blogging on a regular basis is no longer a priority.

No, I am not thinking of a career change. I am just plain side-tracked. It could be the weather. It is indeed getting crazy each day. Nothing more predictable than the unpredictable weather. It could be the pollen. For some reason, after so many years of being allergy-free... now I am allergic to almost everything. And it could be hormonal too. And I will not discuss about it further.

So just an update here... I am still very much around - though not too active. I am still thinking of reviving some of my regular post series - but that depends on my schedule. And I am trying my best to come up with new ideas - and I pray to God that I won't be side-tracked. LOL
