Would You Rather… Running Survey

Hey there everyone!

I hope you’ve all had a good week of running so far! Good luck to everyone on their long runs this weekend. I’ve got 5 miles on the agenda for tomorrow which I’m a little nervous about for some reason. It’s my first time covering that distance without stopping in who knows how long… I’m guessing around a year so yeah… should be interesting.

Anyhoo, I thought I’d check in today with a fun survey that my coach Laura posted a little while back. Feel free to answer some of the would you rathers in the comment section below or post on your own blog. I’d love to hear your answers!

A few thoughts on body kindness and running…

I realized something today after running my first 10k in FOREVER. Running allows  me to be kinder to myself and more accepting of the things I would like to change.

Five Things Friday! – New Job, The Bachelor Sighting, Snacks, Sweat Pink and MORE!

Hey everyone!

This week has been a lot of fun but also really odd. Let me explain…

I’ve done a ton of fun things like meet up with Jenica for an impromptu dinner, ran my first 5k in FOREVER with some Sweat Pink friends (more on this later) and had some going away parties and happy hours with work friends. It’s all been a little surreal though since the going away parties and happy hours have been for me. I know shocker…

Running Victories and You MUST Add This Song to Your Playlist STAT!

I can’t say that I enjoy being to work at 7am, but I DO enjoy when I’m able to get off from work early enough to make it to the lake before the massive crowds take up all the parking.

The only problem is that around 4:30pm is basically the hottest part of the day. It was about 9 million degrees outside and I was wearing this.

Rock n Roll 2016, Food Trucks and Yoga for Runners

There was a lot that was inspiring about experiencing all the excitement surrounding the Rock n Roll Seattle Marathon/Half Marathon last weekend. It’s inspiring to see people working hard to reach their goals, it’s inspiring to see people refusing to give up and it’s inspiring to see people making fitness less of a chore and more about having fun. That being said, it’s hard to be all around that inspiration without getting wrapped up in it yourself. Continue reading

Weekend in Review: Rock and Roll Seattle & All Things Running!

This weekend was all about running, as all good weekends should be.

My friend, Jenica, ran her first half marathon over the weekend at the Rock and Roll Seattle Half. She totally killed it, but let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Let’s start from Friday night at the expo!

Weekend in Review – Oreo Bottom Cupcakes, Puffins and Family Time!

Happy Monday everyone!

Hopefully the sun was out in your neck of the woods, because it was BEAUTIFUL around here this weekend! It was shorts, bare feet in the grass and ice cream weather all the way. It’s amazing how much of a difference getting a little sunlight in your day can do to change your mood! I made the mistake of thinking my Fresh Sugar lip balm had SPF in it and ended up with sunburnt lips by the end of the day on Saturday, but it was well worth it to spend the day running around outside chasing the little ones that were in town visiting.

5 Things Friday – The Bachelorette, Chocolate Chai and More!

Happy Friday Everyone!

Was it just me or did this week seem to go on FOREVER, even though it was a short week? Sheesh. Well at least we’ve made it to Friday and now it’s time to enjoy the weekend! The weather here has been really nice (yesterday I heard it was in the 80’s), so I’ve got my fingers crossed that the nice weather will stick around for the weekend so I can try to get a little Vitamin D going on and not look so scarily pale when wearing anything besides pants!

What I’ve Been Up To Lately…

Hey there lovely people!

I know I’ve been a little MIA lately, so I wanted to do a quick post to touch base and let you know what I’ve been up to lately. Life has been a whirlwind of wrapping things up at one job, starting a new job, packing and moving all over the course of two weeks. Yikes! I’ve definitely had some fitness victories thrown up in the mix too that I wanted to share!
