Hey Run The Money fans, today's sponsored post comes to us from Kim Dawkins. Enjoy!
Finding the right phone contract can be a minefield these days, but there are certain things to look out for and some tricks that will get you the best deal available, sometimes even better!
The first thing you need to decide is which phone you'd actually like to use. You will know right away if you prefer Android or iOS, this will partially dictate your hardware choice. If you have been using either for a significant amount of time changing now can be daunting.
Visit a shop; I know it's 2017 and we mostly shop online now but go to your local high street or mall and visit the phone shops. You will be able to try the handsets and get a feel for what suits you best. Sometimes in hand comfort can win out over the OS or battery life.
Whilst in the shop they will be trying to sell you the phone, you don't want to purchase it just yet but take a mental note of the offers coming your way as you will need them later.
Outwith Samsung, Android phones will be cheaper to purchase outright. One thing to remember however is that Samsung and Apple hardware will hold it's value better than other brands, assuming you keep it in good condition.Read more

The Ketogenic Diet has everybody talking this year and I'm sure you've heard of it by now. But, with all the talk comes a lot of white noise. It's easy to get lost in it all. That's why I put together a list of the best Ketogenic Diet recipes right here.
After all, aren't we all busy enough? It's easier to just have a simple healthy plan outlined for you than to have to search for it yourself. I hope you find these Ketogenic Diet recipes useful. And, if you do lose weight as a result of trying these, please send us some before and after shots! Heck, send your meal photos as well. I'd be delighted to post them all to our social media accounts.
Here we go. Enjoy!Read more
Have you ever wanted a mentor or coach to just lay it all out for you? You know, just tell you what you need to hear and not what you want to hear. Well, for you runners, I have training tips from a USATF coach and race director who will do just that.
Allow me to introduce Coach Lowell Ladd, a USA Track & Field certified coach and race director for the Gettysburg North-South Marathon and the Gettysburg Blue-Gray 1/2 Marathon in Gettysburg, PA.
Lowell is a full-time online coach through his company, 2L Coaching Services, and his philosophy centers on helping "people find/set goals and work towards those goals so that they have some purpose in this sport." He "has worked with hundreds of athletes all over the world of varying ability levels as an online coach, including multiple All-Americans and one NCAA national champion."
Lowell's accolades don't end with his coaching either. He's an NCAA All-American himself, finished in the top 10 among Americans in the Boston Marathon in 2002 and 2003, and won the 2008 and 2010 Harrisburg Marathons (along with a few others). Clearly, Lowell walks his talk (or runs it?).
Now, with that introduction out of the way, let's get to Coach Lowell's tips. That's why you're really here.
Oh, and if you're in the Gettysburg, PA area, make sure to sign up for the Blue Gray half. I'm doing it again this year because it's such an awesome event and very well-organized.Read more
