Welcome to the first Monday in February people!  It’s day 3 of my birthday month and thevalentineRD already have a 2 reasons to celebrate:

#1:  Duran Duran HQ acknowledged this blog on Twitter (I haven’t stopped smiling yet)!

Duran Duran, Twitter, fangirl, DDHQ

11:11 has never been so lucky for me!


#2 : I was named the newest Digital Ambassador for the LoziLu Women’s Mud Run series!

The LoziLu (Low-Zee-Lou) Women’s Mud Run is a fitness event for women of all athletic abilities that benefits children with cancer – 5% of all entry fees go L.I.F.E. (the Leukemia Ironman Fundraiser for Eric – a non-profit organization dedicated to cancer survivorship by providing assistance to cancer patients in need.

In the fitness and blogger world, it’s easy to get jaded by Ambassadorships but I’m especially proud to associate myself with a small event series that supports women and has “we love fitness but we hate cancer” as part of their inner mantra.

Guess what?  I’ve got a very good reason to get you want to skip to my Lu and then run to my Lu –

 ******UPDATE 3/13******

****Lozilu has canceled their Digital Ambassador Program and the promotion code CRJWB is now null and void****

Local LA friends, I’ll be participating in the 3/22 event at the Rose Bowl (I’d love additional team members) and who knows, maybe I’ll make it to NYC for the 7/12/14 event in Brooklyn?  I’d love to have an additional reason to travel so sign up for a LoziLu Mud Run near you and maybe I’ll come and do it with you!

I’ve never done a mud run in my life but this one is a no-brainer for me – it’s a girl power event geared at all athletic levels that supports cancer survivorship and it’s practically in my backyard!  This is a year about change and this is going to be a great way for me to end the first quarter of 2014.  What about you?
