In Their Shoes: Lynn P

Q1: Who are you? Describe your work, life, and sport of choice.

I’m Lynn Penyak. I’m a wife to Lauren and dog mom to Mia. An avid reader and Netflix binger, I also love to run, hike (what those of us in Florida call hiking 😊) and occasionally spin and do yoga. My day job is overseeing research strategy for a multi-state hospital system. In case you were wondering, yes, my doggie has an Instagram and she can be found at @PrincessMiaLoves. 

Q2: What is your sport of choice? How did you get started with it? Do you compete in races, if so what's your favorite distance?

Running! I’ve been a consistent runner for 6 years now with an additional 5 or so of “I need to lose weight so I’ll go for a run,” prior to that. What moved me from the weight goal to fitness goal was being diagnosed with asthma as an adult. I now don’t own a scale and judge myself by how my clothes fit and how my breathing is. I run races and don’t actually have a favorite distance. I’ve run 2 marathons with a goal to complete 5 in my lifetime and then focus on shorter. That said, 5k’s and half’s are currently my jam.

Q3: What is your driving force behind your sport?

I started to run consistently because of asthma however now see it as a defining part of who I am. When I introduce myself I don’t say what I do for a living, I say, “I’m Lynn. I love to run, read and play with my dog.” I want to run well into old age. 

Q4: What are three words that people use to describe you?

Passionate, Loyal, Determined

Q5: What is your favorite thing to listen to while working out (music, podcast, audiobook, etc)...or do you prefer to go without headphones?

I listen to music; however don’t have a playlist. I turn on the an app and just go. It’s more about the meditation of the beat.

Q6: What is your favorite meal or recipe?

Ummm… I don’t cook. 😊 Thankfully my wife loves to cook so my favorite meal is honey chicken, kale and brown Basmati rice. YUM.

Q7: Name a book you recommend to all your friends?

Night by Eli Wiesel. Just read it. You’ll understand. 

Q8: What is your secret pleasure TV show to indulge in?

Friends, Scandal, Grey’s Anatomy and How to Get Away With Murder!

Q9: Last question - what are your favorite workout shoes?

Brooks all the way! #RunHappy

I gave it as a gift to a friend so I actually have no idea what was in the box but all I got was rave reviews from my friend. I’m guessing it was really good. She even ordered the tea that was in the surprise box after she finished what was given to her in your box.

Such a fun package!

I love this promotion! It’s so fun to get a new surprise koala clip and now a tank this year! The teas and chocolates are also great. This is my second year getting one and I have definitely started to look forward to it!

Amazing gift

Love my box! My Koala clip & tank top are just what I needed and all of the other items are a great addition.

This box was awesome! I was prepared to not love the message on either the tank top or the Koala clip, but both ended up absolutely perfect for me! And the Koala clip was my all time favorite color/pattern! Also, it’s rare to get a bunch of dark chocolate from anyone instead of milk chocolate, and dark chocolate is the only chocolate I eat, so I loved that the box came with all dark chocolate!

100% worth it

I bought this box because it hits the free shipping threshold, I didn’t care what color I received, and I love surprises!

I was thrilled! I ended up receiving the perfect color and saying for me, and I loved the goodies. Plus, it came wrapped in a bright bow (And I definitely don’t have enough surprises or ribbons in my life).

Side note: You don’t have to worry about them putting something with “mother” on it in the box. They assured me they would never do that. Also, the goodies were consumable, specifically tea and chocolate (not some weird keychain or magnet or sticker)
