Quickie

Just dropping in for a quick update. Still working on lots of posts that should (hopefully) be more interesting than this, but there are not enough hours in the day and days in the week. Here are the highlights since my last post:

  • I won the MIX1 Giveaway at I Run Because I Can. After I get my prize, I will let you know what I think of it!
  • I ran 30 miles last week. It wasn't easy, but I did it. Did you know 15 miles is a long way to run?
  • I tried two new running products during last week's runs. See my sidebar for reviews.
  • I went shopping. My finds included: a handheld Amphipod (I am not a huge fan of my hydration belt); pepper spray for my husband's peace of mind (and mine!); energy gels; and NUUN.



I will now leave you with the words that have been going through my head all day:

"Life's what you make it, so let's make it rock!"


(Yes, those are the words to a Hannah Montana song; I have a 3-year-old little girl so that's what you get. And you have to admit, she's got a point!)

  1. I can't wait to read what you think of the hand held. Hydration belts drive me crazy! Congratulations on your 30 miles last week!

    Shhh... don't tell anyone, but I have been know to secretly like a few Hannah Montana songs, myself.

  2. Congrats on winning the giveaway and running 30 miles!

    You're smart to carry spray with you. Looks like you had some fun shopping!

  3. Smart to bring pepper spray; I should probably copy you. I ran with the handheld today and it wasn't too bad. I HATE the fuel belt.

  4. Great job on the 30 miles! I am running 25 this week and it is slowly creeping up.

  5. Thanks for your comment! I've heard the Hobble Creek half is awesome. I'll look forward to your report. I don't know where the Provo River half starts. I couldn't find a map online...Since you ran the 10 miler could you tell me? I thought I could maybe run my 8 miler on the first part of it this weekend. Have a good one!

Social Media: Some good, a lot of bad, and way too much ugly

There are a lot of good things that come from social media. We can connect with people we have lost touch with. We can unite as a group (runners!!) with a comment interest. We can promote a good cause. Sadly though, what social media does best is makes us feel bad about ourselves and makes us feel negatively towards others. This isn't just my opinion, although I can unquestionably support the truth behind this based on my own experience. I have spent way too much time feeling bad about myself as a result of comparing myself to others based on their Instagram or Facebook versions of themselves. And there are several people I have started feeling negatively about or have become completely annoyed with because of their IG and FB posts. It isn't just me though. There are actual studies that can back me up on the negative impact social media can have. I have read dozens of articles reviewing many different studies that show the overwhelmingly negative (vs. positive) effec

Carpet Burn On My Butt (and a giveaway)

After two lame, pathetic, lackluster weeks of running, I woke up excited to run yesterday. And today, I wore my running clothes all morning in anticipation of my nap time run today. Even in spite of sore glutes and tired quads from getting in some P90X Core Synergistics last night, I couldn't wait to get moving on Millie. I am a planner. Today I had a plan to get my run in while my girls slept, and my day was organized accordingly. I am also a creature of habit. The first thing I do when I roll out of bed every single day is make my bed and my girls' beds. If I do something else first, it throws off the entire morning. I am a creature of habit when it comes to my running routines as well. There are a few things that differ depending on whether I am running on Millie or outside, whether my girls are asleep or not, and whether or not they are joining me in the jogger. Yet, no matter when, where, how far or with whom I run, some things are always the same. My hair goes into a pon

Raindrops on roses...not so much

I ran 15 miles on Saturday and a barefoot mile today (in addition to four in shoes), but why talk about those things when I can share some of my favorite random things, thanks to Rachelle tagging me! Favorite Thing to Photograph My girls (although I actually didn't take this picture) Favorite Thing to Cook Cupcakes, cookies, brownies. I'm all about the baked goods, mostly because they are my favorite thing to EAT. Favorite Way to Exercise Running, of course Favorite Movie I love movies and have a lot of favorites, but this has been a constant on my list. Favorite Article of Clothing I was going to say jeans, because I could wear jeans every single day. But I could survive without wearing jeans for a week. I couldn't survive without my running shoes for a week. Favorite Flower Tulips Favorite Breakfast French toast! Favorite Cartoon Character I love Rapunzel and Flynn and Belle and the frog in Gnomeo and Juliet. I could probably list about 20
