8 stages of marathon running… Just in Time for the NYC Marathon

Good Morning Luv-lies,

Well, today is the day that thousands – according to the talk in the running community- 47,000 runners have been eagerly awaiting….. The New York City Marathon!!! 

Cancelled last year due to , what is now referred to as ‘Super Storm Sandy, I’m sure that that the energy among the runners there is palpable!  

I’ll be watching the race along with all of you. 

As a show of support, I’ve found this light-hearted video, as a tribute to these everyday Heroes 

 

I hope that you’ve enjoyed this fun-filled look of what it must be like – at least for some – in the pursuit of this much applauded 26.1 miles of victory 🙂

 

So Luv-lies,

What will you be doing on this NYC Marathon Sunday?

Do You NaBloPoMo?

Good Morning Luv-lies,

This morning I signed on to participate in this months NaBloPoMo.  Okay… so what is this?  NaBloPoMo stands for National Blog Posting Month :-).  I’m using this opportunity as an inspiration to continue, waaaay after this challenge has ended, post daily in this space that I’ve curved out for myself.   A space where – as the tag line for this challenge encourages –  I can “Type [My] Heart Out” !

Modeled after a similar contest whose audience are novelists  NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month),, the wonderful people at Blogher  created a community of everyday bloggers to gather and share their thoughts and experiences.

So Luv-lies,  What’s inspired you today?

#Movember … What’s this All About?

20131106-153845.jpgHey Luv-lies,

Good Morning to you all.

I am sooooo excited about this being the month of November!  Yes, yes.  I know – It’s #NaBlogPoMo  Month!!  Don’t get me wrong, I am super stoked about that…

Whaaaat!?  … being able to hob-nob with all of the fabulousness in one divine blogosphere community….  can you say

 ‘FAB – U- LOUSSSSS‘?!

 Well it seems that November is the chosen month for many a celebration.  I think that I know which one is coming to mind, right about now.  But. No, No.  It’s not Thanksgiving (I’ll have a post about this holiday for Culinary Divahs and Food Lovers very soon).

Then ‘What can it be?’ you ask  *gently scratching one’s head with a well-manicured nail*

This month is officially,

MOVEMBERRRRRRR!

What? Oh What? is this thing called Movember?

In the words of one NYC journalist,  simply put, Movember is a fundraising initiative where ….

“….. thousands of men around the world said goodbye to their clean-shaven upper lips and braced themselves for awkward stubble. Movember, a global initiative that has grow mustaches during November to raise awareness and money for men’s health, is now officially under way….”

It’s been several years since the birth of this initiative (founded by an Australian gentleman),  Movember  has become an official charity with global reach.  The vision is to have an impact on men’s health that rivals that of breast cancer awareness.

There are Three Basic Rules:

1~    Start on November 1st clean shaven

2~   Grow  your ‘Mo’  (Australian for ‘moustache’) for 30 days

3~     Raise Awareness and funds for Men’s Health

It’s that simple…

Need the backstory?

Check out this video….

 Through the power of the Mo, vital funds and awareness are raised to combat prostate and testicular cancer and mental health challenges.

So Luv-lies,

Will you ‘Mo’ this month?
