A really awesome running tip for you.


After running 14 miles, an apple fritter tastes like heaven (and gives me crazy eyes, apparently). I'm not even a huge fan of apple fritters. I followed it with a maple bar for dessert (the apple fritter was lunch).



After a miserably hot long run, it was time for some more time in the heat at the water park with my girls. Have I mentioned I love my girls? I wore my new swimsuit for the first time and loved it! Bonus: I got to show off my sweet runner's tan.



Six recovery miles on Saturday. I wore my watch but didn't use it. Just some random information for you. This is an example of why I don't take running selfies. This was the best of a really bad bunch of attempts.



When you see some little ponies during your run, you take your horse-crazy daughter to see them. And this happens.



And this is how you wear KT Tape to church without it being too obvious. You're welcome. I'm glad I could share such an awesome running tip with you.



I have been pretty good lately about cutting back on treats. When I was craving something sweet the other day, I made this Honey Coconut Popcorn for a healthier sweet treat option. The problem is, when something is this good, I end up eating way too much and it is no longer healthy. So yes, it is good. And you should make it. So here is the recipe:


Honey Coconut Popcorn

6 cups air popped popcorn
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup (unrefined) coconut oil
1 tsp vanilla
salt

Melt honey and coconut oil together over low heat. Whisk in vanilla. Let sit 5-10 minutes to cool slightly. Pour over popcorn and stir gently. Salt to taste.

  1. That popcorn sounds delicious...and like I would it the whole batch. By myself. I did A LOT of eating over the weekend.

    How is the KT tape helping? It blends right in with your super cute shoes!

    Good job on your run and your donuts. I feel like the two go hand in hand.

    1. You would eat the whole batch. It is that good! But it's "healthy" right?

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

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

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
