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!

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
