Working Out I love to run, but sometimes you need that extra push. I get my extra push during sessions with a personal trainer. Jenn at Sole Health and Wellness is awesome! We meet at a park near the beach and I love that as my gym-- it's beautiful. She pushes me to do better and I love the improvement I'm seeing in my runs.
Medals Who doesn't love bling?! It's not the only reason I run, but it can be a great ending to a race. Check out this awesome medal from my recent 5K, the Carlsbad 5000. (the free beer was a nice perk too!)
Burritos I sometimes tease that I run so that I can eat. Burritos are amongst my favorite post race foods and I'm lucky to live somewhere that has them everywhere. If you've ever in San Diego, you need to try the Mexican food!
New Skirts I recently discovered Spandits skirts and I'm in love. I just received this cute one and I can't wait to take it on a run!
Dancing With the Stars Deaf actor/model Nyle DiMarco is showing America that Deaf people can do anything, including dance! As someone who signs and teaches ASL, I am loving Dancing With the Stars this season. I can't wait to see him take home the mirrorball!
Nuun Hydration has always been an opportunity with me and I've been trying to up my hydration game. Nuun is helping with that-- with great flavors, Nuun is great before, during and after runs. Even on my non-run days, I add Nuun All Day to my water.
I've entered a few giveaways and have won a couple fun prizes. One of my favorite ways to check out giveaways is to visit RunningWithSDMom on Wednesdays for her weekly post of all the giveaways.
Yes, I just talked about burritos, which are not the healthiest of foods. (at least not the ones I eat!) But I also love healthy treats. Last week after a hike, I treated myself to a freshly squeezed juice (orange, carrot and apple cider vinegar) and a cottage cheese bowl-- cottage cheese with fresh strawberries, bananas, agave, granola and cinnamon. It was the perfect post-hike treat!
I love when the people I follow on social media post inspirational quotes. There is so much negativity in this world, that I love to see the positive vibes, especially when it's people supporting other people. This is one of my favorites.
I usually run in the early hours or in the evening-- the past few weeks, I've been joining friends for runch (running on your lunch break). It's the perfect midday perk that I need. Especially with views like this!
What things are you celebrating this week?
Until next time, happy running!
