no stink.

I just looked at my mileage for October, because of my 3 weeks of running rest, it was a dismal 19.5.  Compare that to August which was 148. I have 246 miles to go before the year is out, at this point I don't know if it's going to happen, but we'll see.

I did get to run on the treadmill this morning, and ran three miles on Halloween, was hoping for four but then felt like I couldn't push it just yet.  It was a weird weather day, during the course of the run it was cloudy, it hailed, and then it got sunny. I didn't mind though, I was just happy to be outside and moving.



I had a chance to try febreeze Laundry Odor Eliminator, for laundry that gets especially stinky, like ahem, running clothes.  I saved up all my workout wear for the week, and washed them along with Mike's nasty weekend chore clothes, which he wore while clearing up the backyard with his chainsaw.  His jeans and shirts smelled like gas and sweat, nice combo. He had to drive to New Hampshire and back on Friday, and he brought back lobsters for a late dinner.  I had a lobster pot water soaked dishtowel that stunk, so I threw that in too. You add the Febreeze along with your detergent, in true me fashion I managed to spill it all over my hand when I was pouring it.  It smelled nice, a bit like shampoo.  And it worked!  When the clothes came out of the dryer, there wasn't any extra soapy odor, they just smelled....clean.

If you would like to try a 1.5 liter bottle of the Laundry Odor Eliminator courtesy of febreze, here is your chance....go to the febreze website here, then leave me a comment.  I'll pick two winners using random.org on November 10th.

*Note, I was provided with a bottle of febreze for the purpose of this review, the opinions on the product are my own.

i went to their site, cause i reek. like, a head turning at 50 yards kind of ozone thang. I have been trying vinegar to stave off the funk police, I had a stink-off with a skunk and won, so am probably going to give this a try. maybe they could come up with a sexy man smell i could try. like "black dagger brotherhood" scent. sorry, i am rambling.

I went to the Febreexe website and noticed that they have a new product called "Febreze SPORT Extreme Odor Eliminator".

I'd love to try this. I just ended up washing a load of towels 3 times before actually putting them in the dryer...every time I washed them I forgot about them and they were smelly by the time I remembered to put them in the dryer!

Allison said...

I would love to try the febreeze sport eliminator as well!!! A whole new laundry experience I'm sure!!!!!!!

Robin said...

Mmmm... love Febreze. Even use it in my car! I registered for the coupon to be mailed, and I'd love to win a bottle. Count me in and THANKS for sharing this product with us. :-)

Copychic said...

I went to their website because hey, we use Tide Sport with Febreze...and it just doesn't seem to do it anymore. Our workout clothes still seem to come out with a bit of...odor. So something new that might banish the stink? I'm sold.

Glad to hear you're ramping up your mileage again. It's got to feel good to get back out there :)

misszippy said...

Went to their site...with a dog who unfortunately loves to nap on my bed, I could use the pet odor refresher!

J said...

I need some of that stuff! I was just at the gym the other day and I was like wow this shirt smells still and I know I washed it!

One Crazy Penguin said...

Went to the website and would love to try this product! Sometimes it's just hard to wash that running smell out!

Terri said...

Thanks for the review - if it handled lobster pot stink it must be pretty good!

Susan Fobes said...

Hmm... This might be worth a try. I went to their site and noticed that they have Febreeze fresheners for pet odor too, but I have yet to see this in the store.

Julie said...

Sold!!! I have got to try this stuff:) Thanks for the review Molly.

Erika said...

Having a stinky boy and lots of stinky running clothes...this product would be amazing in my house!!! I hate when stuff doesn't smell "clean" or smells musty after wash...thanks for the review!

Cynthia O'H said...

Oh, I'd love to try the Odor Eliminator. Let's hope it works on hockey gear. I'll have to let hubs know to keep his out for some when he goes south next.

Jen (Triathlete Within) said...

I'd LOVE to try this stuff out!! I can work up a good sweat just walking around the block - my clothes get SOOO stinky. It's gross.

Big Daddy Diesel said...

Hmmm, I might give this a try

Katie H said...

Great review! I would love to try this stuff- my hot yoga gear never smells completely clean! Gross, I know.

Iron Mike said...

Sounds like a good week of stinkiness to try this product. Normally, I'd be interested in something like this, but my running clothes are a lost cause.
246 miles in 2 months?
You might be ready to hit 100 this month and then crush it in December, but hell, you ran a MARATHON. That trumps 1,000 miles hands down.

Tortuga_Runner said...

So gonna try it, thanks for the review. My technical shirts never truly get all the funk out.

Amber said...

I want to smell so fresh n so clean! This would definitely help! my shoes would probably not be banned to the laundry room :)

Brittney said...

Sounds like good stuff! I'd try it if given the chance!

LauraElaine said...

Sounds great! Especially on the ones ya find in the gym bag a few days later.....ooops :)

Laura said...

I would love to try this! My running clothes don't stink too much but I go to bootcamp in a gymnastics gym and it has the funkiest smell!

Eryn said...
