Novo Renew

Fastest 5K in ages!!!

All I can say is, WOW Y’ALL. I felt almost like the runner I was five years ago. My knees were singing and I almost felt like I could barely keep up with my legs. I thank @novorenew for this feeling. If you’d have asked me 2 months ago I’d have told you my running days were nearing the end. After taking Novo Renew for a month now I can happily say that toon has changed. If you’d like to try a risk free bottle check out the link in my profile and use Michelle25 to save.

What’s your favorite distance to run?

Cheers!

Pi day miles

Woohoo it’s Friday eve! Thank goodness because my patience is wearing a little thin this week. My goal was to get 3.14 miles in for “Pi day” or is it “Pie” day? LOL, I have heard discussions of both on the talk show listen to on my way home, so I suppose why not celebrate both?!?

Unfortunately the temps got the best of me, and I was trying to push my speed a little since my knees are feeling so great since taking Novo Renew (<–check out the link). I ran the first mile in around 10:30 and the second mile in 10:14 (mind you it was a real feel of 88 degrees outside) and I could feel the sun beating down on me and decided I would cut it short by a mile. Let me tell you what, my knees really didn’t hurt at all. Sure, a little wiggle here and there, but heck I’ve been running for 30 years so that’s expected!

 

How was your day? Did you celebrate with Pie, or some Pi miles? Interested in learning more about an all natural way for pain relief in your knees/joints? Click HERE!!

Weekend wrap and more!

Gosh I’ve been so busy I’ve not had time to write, or read many posts over the last several days. My weekend was cram packed full of fun which always makes for good memories.

My friend that took me in when I moved here (one of my dearest Air Force friends whom I love dearly) got tickets for me and herself along with her Mom and sister to see Blake Shelton. She surprised me back in January for my birthday gift and we had a complete blast. She believes in making memories for gifts vs. buying an actual gift which I completely love. She and I headed down to down town Tampa and had dinner at Sparkman’s Warf. It’s a new outdoor food court for lack of better description but that has yummy “elevated” food. After dinner we met her Mom and sister at the concert and we had such a great evening. Here are a few photos:

 

Saturday my daughter had her “belt promotion” ceremony for Jujitsu and Muay Tai, and wouldn’t you have it, who got promoted to yellow belt after just four months of training? Yup, that’s my girl. It’s so amazing to watch her train. She simply glows, and has gained so much confidence. I LOVE it.

 

Sunday was a much needed retreat to the beach for the day. We relaxed in the sun, and although the water was too cold for my liking, my husband and daughter had a blast playing around in the water while I napped and searched for seashells (not at the same time, LOL).

 

Today I have vowed to get back into routine workouts. I have both a core (SworkIt) app and a Yoga app so I have no excuse. Tonight I did a 10 minute core workout and an 8 minute Yoga workout after work, and it felt great. I am also shooting for at least 2 runs per week.  My goal is a minimum of 3-4 workouts each week.

I’m also happy to report that my back and knees are singing since taking Novo Renew.

(<—Affiliate link) I have even noticed a difference in the smoothness of my skin due to the collagen component of this amazing supplement. I hope you will all give this a try, and make sure to use Michelle25 at check out to save 25% off of your order. There is a 30 day money back guarantee, so I urge you to give it a try for your ailments. My joints, knees, and shoulders as well as my neck have felt tremendously better.

How was your weekend? Is the weather getting any better where you live? Have you considered trying an all natural alternative to NSAIDs?

Cheers!

A good day to run!!! Belated weekend wrap up!

I decided to be smart and take a week off after running the Gasparilla half marathon the last weekend of February (click the link to read my recap), which turned out to be a week AND a half off since I was still recovering from this past weekend. Keep reading and you’ll understand why…

Saturday night my hubby and I escaped away to Orlando for the evening to celebrate our 14th wedding anniversary (which was back in November but he was traveling for work and we never got around to celebrating). Since we had Hilton Honor points and our daughter was spending the night at a friend’s house, we thought, why not? We had a blasssst. We ate a place called The Flying Fish (the food and service was truly amazing. Freshly caught fish being cooked in an open kitchen made it quite the experience), and then hit up Disney Springs for some drinks and dancing. It felt so good to be US for 24 hours without any of the stressors in life (we won’t talk about the $1800 estimate I got on repairs for my 8 year old Jeep Saturday morning…we decided to NOT talk about it all weekend, and we’ll worry about that Friday morning when I drop it off, LOL).

We got home from Orlando in enough time for me to unpack and change clothes to go see the P!NK concert with my good friend Kandice. We got the tickets last fall and have been counting down the days until the concert. I have loved P!NK since the 90’s so this was definitely a bucket list item checked off!!!

 

SOOO I was going to run yesterday after work but MAN was it cold and dreary here in sunny Florida so I decided to put it off until today. I am so glad I did, because despite the strong winds, the temps were in the low 60’s and the sun was SHINING bright. I was able to maintain an average of a 10:16 pace and even hit in the 9’s during the 3rd mile. What’s even better, I was able to run all three miles PAIN FREE thanks to Novo Renew (affiliate link) which has drastically helped my knees and joints. If you’d like to try a bottle at no risk (30 money back guarantee) use Michelle25 at check out to save 25% off!! I’d love to hear your feedback as well, should you decide to give this amazing product a try!! (click the link to learn more)!

How was your weekend? What’s the best concert that you have attended? Have you ever taken a chance and tried a new product? (click that link above, you won’t be sorry!)

Cheers!

knee pain, moving forward, Novo Renew

Kick the habit!!!

Kick the Ibuprofen Habit

They’re in every medicine cabinet, the go-to for almost any ache or pain. They’re NSAIDs

(non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) like ibuprofen. The good news is they work. The

bad news? NSAID side effects can include an increase in high blood pressure, kidney

damage, and severe gastrointestinal problems.

Overuse

These problems tend to happen with long-term or heavy use. The occasional ibuprofen

for a headache, sore joints, or other aches and pains is OK. But for runners, it’s easy to

rely too heavily on them.

Use Novo Renew for inflammation

Novo Renew uses an all-natural joint comfort blend of eight, restorative ingredients to:

1) Help your body maintain its normal inflammation response, so it can heal naturally.

2) Give your body the building blocks it needs to begin restoring damaged cells.

3) Flushes free radicals that result from metabolic waste out of your system.

Helping healthy people maintain a normal, balanced inflammatory response is one key to long term joint health. Rather than relying on NSAIDs, heal naturally with Novo Renew.

If this sounds like something you’d be interested in please click http://novorenew.com/?aff=MichelleMovinIt and use Michelle25 at check out to save 25% off. They offer a 30 day money back guarantee so you really can’t go wrong!!!

Why I run…My story in a nutshell

How do you run so much? Don’t your knees hurt? Isn’t running bad for your knees?? These are several questions I get asked daily, so here’s my story!

runnerknee

I started running back in junior high school as a way to try and be involved and get to know people and continued running throughout my high school years. While serving in the Air Force I also ran as part of the physical requirements needed, but also as a way to remain fit. I’ve always loved running, but little did I know, running would truly save my life as I learned back in 2007. I had suffered severely from postpartum depression, and after having some career setbacks that year along with losing my fraternal Grandfather, I KNEW I needed to get my mind right. I was talking with a friend in mid-September, and on a whim we decided to run the Rock and Roll half marathon in San Antonio, TX. I had less than 8 weeks to train and I gave it everything I had. I would run in the evenings after work, and my training plan was mapped out on a simple note pad. I tracked my mileage map by driving the route and annotating the mile markers on my plan. I had a simple Timex watch that tracked my time per mile which I had to track with pen and paper when I got home from my run. There were no fancy GPS watches or gels, it was just me, my IPod, some water, and my worn out Nike shoes. I ran that first half marathon in 2:19, and I can say it was a defining moment in my life. Finally I had a release to the stress and sadness, finally I felt like me again.
Fast forward 12 years, and I’ve now ran 3 full marathons (PR is 4:25) and 17 half marathons (PR is 2:00:11). Running is a NEED in my life, no longer a simple past time. As you can imagine, 30+ years of running has taken it’s toll on my knees. This last couple of years especially. I have tried all the glucosamine supplements, NSAIDS, and everything in between with no relief. I had honestly contemplated giving up distance running which just the thought of it broke my heart. So when Tad from NOVO Renew reached out to me, asking if I wanted to try his all natural supplements for pain relief and anti-inflammatory issues, I thought, “Why not?”
So here I am just a couple of weeks later, and I can already feel a difference. My knees don’t constantly hurt, and I am able to walk/run pain free!!! Does story resonate with you at all? Are you interested in getting rid of all the Ibuprofen out of your medicine cabinet AND your body? Then please, click HERE to try this amazing product out. Use Michelle25 at check out to safe 25% off, RISK free as they offer a 30 day money back guarantee.

Also, please note, this product isn’t just for runners. Dancers, athletes, Cross fitters and everyone in between can benefit from this product. I’d love for you to join me in a pain free life again! Please let me know if you have any questions, and I’d love to hear from you after you try this amazing product.

Cheers!

Exciting opportunity

A few weeks ago I was contacted by a company to try out their product that was not only all natural, but good for anti-inflammatory as well as aiding in bone and collagen health. The company is Novo Renew, and I talked a little about it yesterday.

runningmeme
Because we sure don’t want THIS to happen, LOL

As a middle aged runner, my knees and joints aren’t what they used to be, so I jumped at the chance to give it a try.

The product contains 8 natural ingredients which include:

Inflammation modulation
Boswellia Extract
Frutiex-B (calcium fructoborate)

Joint and soft tissue protection and maintenance
MSM (calcium fructoborate)
UCII Type 2 Undernatured Collagen
Vitamin D

Immune Modulation
Bromelain
Trypsin
Rutin

I started taking it about a week ago, to give my time to adjust to it before the Gasparilla half marathon which was yesterday, read about it here in case you missed it! I could almost immediately see a difference. The pain in my knees were dramatically less, and I can honestly say I ran the race yesterday, “knee pain” free. That, my friends, is HUGE. So much so, that when the folks at Novo Renew gave me the opportunity to be an affiliate, I decided to JUMP at the chance. My affiliate link can be found HERE! And if you use my link, use the code “Michelle25” and you’ll receive 25% off of your order.

SO, what do you get? For around $29.00 you get a month’s supply of supplements. The daily dose is 2 capsules per day, (which are very easy to swallow) with food. Novo Renew suggests taking with breakfast or lunch, as many people feel an energy boost after taking Novo. Too easy, right!!!??? Think of all of the money you’ve spent on NSAID’s which have terrible side effects such as high blood pressure, kidney damage and severe GI problems. Here is what it would cost for you to buy all of the supplements in Novo separately, which shows $29.00 is a great price!

Collagen UC-II-60 capsules, $22
Boswellia Serrata-60 capsules, $16
Vitamin D-60 capsules, $4
Bromelain-60 capsules, 16
MSM (methylsulfonylmethane)-60 capsules, $8
Fruitex B (calcium fructoborate)-60 capsules, $12
Rutin-60 capsules, $12
Trypsin-60 capsules, $18
Total=$108 (The prices above represent an average price for each of these natural supplements. There may be slightly cheaper options – and there are also much more expensive options – for each.)

Lastly, they offer a 30 day money back guarantee, so you REALLY can’t go wrong!!! What are you waiting for? Click HERE and don’t forget to use Michelle25 at check out to get your 25% off (which is the $29 price)!!!

Please don’t hesitate to ask me any questions. If I don’t know the answer, I will make sure to find the answer for you ASAP. Also, please share with anyone you may know that is suffering from knee/joint issues. Thanks!!
