Under Armour {Giveaway} + Competition Update


This is sponsored content from BlogHer and Under Armour.

I mentioned last week that I joined the Under Armour What's Beautiful Challenge and I am super excited. I was a little weary with the time constraints whether or not I would make headway, but I tell you what... The competition was just what I needed to kick my butt into gear. I have such a competitive spirit so naturally I jumped at the opportunity to compete with thousands of other BEAUTIFUL women. It is so inspiring to see all the goals and accomplishments thus far from the other women in the competition and I am loving every minute of being involved. 

My goal is to bust down the 5-mile run barrier that has been taunting me, so I am hoping by next week I will be at 5 and the following week 6. Then by the 26th when the competition is over, I would love to be at 6.5 or 7. I think I can push 7, but again, I'm not a runner (yet) so it's really going to take work. Thanks for all of the motivation throughout this journey. Keep it up please! View all of my completed challenges on my UA profile. I still have a lot of work ahead of me. :)

In researching the competitors in the challenge I came across a giveaway for a chance to win a $500 Under Armour gift card. This blog post enters me into the challenge, but I also wanted to let you know about it so you can enter too! Who doesn't want free swag from Under Armour! Since some of my favorite running gear is UA, of course I want a chance to win more.

Here's some of my fave UA gear: 

UA braided racer back tank

My favorite hat to run in... It's so breathable!
And my favorite heat gear compression capri. I would probably wear these every day if it weren't for having to wash them. :)

There's still time to join the competition if your get your booty movin!
