Things I Love Thursday - Three Things

I decided to combine my Things I Love Thursday with a Three Things Thursday because it just feels like a bullet points kind of day. So here are three things I'm loving...

1. The birthday girl. My Bean turned five today. Five!! It's hard to believe she came into my life that long ago! I am so blessed to have this spunky, animated, little snug bug in my life.  

2. Key lime Accel Gel. Okay, so maybe "love" is a little extreme. But I'm tolerating it, and it will be my go-to fuel during upcoming races.

3. Giveaways. I have two entries to give away to the Color Me Rad 5k race in Orem, Utah on September 28! You can find out more about the race HERE. What you really need to know is it will be fun. And I'm running it too. Yes, I'm stepping out of my running comfort zone to give this race a try!!

And since the race can sell iteself better than I can, here's a little more about it:
If you're allergic to the metric system, corn starch, or unbridled joy, you'd probably be more comfortable watching Matlock than at the starting blocks of this color-filled 5k. 

But if you're itching for a great time and not from a bad case of diaper rash, Color Me Rad Utah Valley is the run for you.

By intelligent design or evolution, man was meant to run for one thing and one thing only: to stay alive. Pamplona was the first real race organized for what running should be: running from stuff that's going to kill, gore, or maim you.

Luckily, we've evolved to where we only hunt for attractive potential mates, we only gather for extreme couponing, and we only run to benefit charities and our cardiovascular system.

So quit lollygagging and join us for the race that's been ruining all other 5Ks since 2012 at Color Me Rad Utah Valley
Color Me Rad: gluten-free running since 2012 (all previous years were full of gluten).
To enter to win one of two free race entries, all you have to do is visit the Color Me Rad site HERE. Then leave a comment telling me why you want to run it either here or on my Color Me Rad Instagram post HERE.
Winners will be announced Thursday, September 12.


  1. I want to run it because it's claims to be "RAD" and hopefully I can keep up with you (for the first 1/2 miles that is;) Love ya Candy!

  2. I need to step up my routine and commitment level. Having this race to prepare for could be just the thing I need!


I love your comments! They make my day, so be sure to let me know you stopped by. And I always try to respond to your comments, so let me know if you have any questions for me or if there is anything you want to see on here!
