Things I Love Thursday - A running wall and little pink things

Several people have told me they tried to leave a comment on my blog but had trouble, so I set up a new commenting system that will hopefully work much better! Let me know if you still run into any problems leaving comments. BTW...I love your comments (hint, hint).

Maybe next Thursday my new commenting system will be one of the things I love. Let's hope!

This week, I'm loving my new Boston wall. I came home from girl's night on Tuesday, and Scott had done this. He bought the newspapers the morning after the marathon with this exact purpose in mind! It makes me smile every time I sit down at my desk and inspires me to never give up on my dreams.

I have always loved my little pink Forerunner 10, but I'm especially loving that I get to wear it on a regular basis again these days.

Kind of random, but I love Smarties. They were sitting on the desk next to my watch, so why not share my love of them with you?!?

What is your favorite non-chocolate candy?
What is an accomplishment you are most proud of, running or non-running related?

  1. My favorite non chocolate candy... anything fruity and chewy. I am a sugar fanatic.

  2. Being a good mom, being fit (my mom, aunts and grandma weren't), and running 3 half marathons...something I never thought I could do, and when I made the new years resolution sign with the goal of running my first half, I was scared to death! :) Favorite non chocolate candy...Red Vines.

  3. Red Vines, like Swedish Fish, are something everyone in my family loves except me!

    Those are incredible things to be proud of! You are amazing.

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
