    I ate my lunch at NuVal this afternoon. I threw together a random bunch of leftovers from the fridge: roasted Brussels sprouts, mashed potatoes, chicken, and crumbled feta. It was surprisingly tasty all mixed together.

    While working away at NuVal, I sipped on some hot coffee with cream and sugar.

    At home a few hours later, I whipped up a green smoothie. In the mix:

    • 1 frozen banana
    • 1/2 cup chopped frozen kale
    • 2 tbsp sunflower butter
    • 2 tsp honey
    • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
    • 1.75 cups almond milk

    It was quite the delicious smoothie. It sort of tasted like banana bread with sunflower butter spread on top. Delish! It was also insanely filling. I hope I’m hungry for dinner in a few hours!

    I have been carrying my cell phone along in my sweaty hands on every run (even runs >12 miles) over the past 5 years to pace myself and track my mileage. I know this watch would be used DAILY. Student loans do come first, but a GPS running watch remains on the wish list…

    Would love to win and give to my 11 year old daughter who recently took up running about 6 months ago

    i would love this watch to help me train for my next half marathon!


    Christina Norwell April 1, 2012 at 11:50 pm

    I have been disappointed in myself and lost my running mojo. This watch would bring much needed encouragement!

    I just started trail running with our new puppy( 9 month old lab mix) and i LOVE it! But i wish i knew how far we were going. One of those gps runner watches would rock!


    Andrea April 2, 2012 at 1:57 am

    Well, I had a garmin that just died about a week or 2 ago and I would love a replacement to keep track of my training runs for my first half marathon this spring.


    Gretchen April 2, 2012 at 4:58 am

    I think this would be awesome to get me out the door and motivated. Seems like a super cool product I would love to try!


    Krysta April 2, 2012 at 7:30 am

    I would love to win this watch because I lose track of pace and time while running races. I’m always mad after because I know my times could be better. That and I’m always pushing myself further….lost 50 lbs the last year before my 26th bday. Now I workout because I love the feeling!! 🙂


    Janelle H April 2, 2012 at 7:41 am

    I would love to use this on long, solo runs!


    Hannah April 2, 2012 at 8:19 am

    I would love to win this gadget so I can track my time and distance to help me run faster and longer 🙂

    I would LOVE to win this watch! I’ve used a Polar FT40 for a while, but now it’s got a serious wiring issue – it keeps telling me my heart rate is 250! I’m also training for my first half marathon, so I’ve really been wanting a watch that’s better suited for running. My iPhone MapMyRun app just isn’t cutting it!


    Sherry Rini April 2, 2012 at 9:34 am

    I would love to win this watch! I started running about 6 months ago and at first I just wanted to get out and run – now after running two 5Ks I want to get better and healthier! Unfortunately, can’t afford to buy one – so I am hoping to win one.


    Sherry Rini April 2, 2012 at 9:35 am

    I would love to win it because I decided to work out again now that my 3rd son is 9 months old. It would help me a lot!


    Eric April 3, 2012 at 8:15 am

    Man, this watch is too cool and I have been wanting one for a while, but I can’t afford it.


    Liz April 3, 2012 at 2:06 pm

    Since I don’t see a winner listed – I’ve been looking a GPS watches for a while, and would love one for this summer – I’m doing research in Uganda, and won’t be able to map out routes like I usually do!

    Kendra April 8, 2012 at 7:35 pm

    I would love the GPS watch. I am relatively a new runner/walker and exerciser and would love anything help me monitor what I am doing!


    Joy L Riggs April 17, 2012 at 5:51 am

    I just started training to enter a 5K and then on to bigger and better things. This sure would be nice to have. Thanks for giving us a chance to win.


    marie April 20, 2012 at 2:42 pm

    Wow! Great giveaway! I lost 117lbs and adopted a healthy lifestyle and have been running for over 5 years now! I’d love to know how fast I’m going around the hood!


    Tiffiny Duke May 8, 2012 at 9:58 am

    On my runs I do a wide variety of up hill, down hill and straight a ways. I want to know so bad what my stats are! I would love this watch!!


    Linda September 5, 2012 at 12:40 pm

    An avid runner all my life. Had back surgery and a huge setback. Trying to rebound and get back into running. This watch would really help me in tracking my recovery!
