10 Things on a Tuesday

While some people celebrate Taco Tuesday, I like to celebrate all the things.  Here are 10 things I'm loving this week.


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.  


Giveaways

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.


Healthy Treats

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!



Inspirational Quotes

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.


Runch

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!

Run Laughlin Race Recap

In March, during a weekly #RunChat I won a race entry and weekend hotel stay for the Run Laughlin Half Marathon. (If you’ve never joined a #RunChat, get more information here—it’s always a fun time!) The race is relatively new—this was only the second year, but I was excited.  The race run in two states & in two time zones—the nerd in me was excited to add this to my race experiences.. The race wasn't until December, but suddenly it was nine months later and I was ready to go.  

The race was on a Saturday so I was driving out to Laughlin on Friday. After meeting up with the #RUN619 and Movin’ Shoes for my morning run, I was on my way.  The drive is 5-6 hours and I frankly wasn’t looking forward to it.  I had been monitoring the weather for about a week and it had been showing high winds for the drive—they weren’t lying!  The drive ended up being pretty uneventful and I arrived in Laughlin with plenty of time to hit up the expo and explore a bit.


After checking into my hotel, I h…

The Lululemon Test Truck Experience

I don’t own any Lululemon, but I’ve been told by my friends who love the brand that once you try it, you won’t want to wear any other brand. Earlier this year, I heard about their #MoreThanMiles tour that took #TheTestTruck to different cities so that people could do just that- test the Lululemon.  I was excited when I learned it would be coming to San Diego and quickly started following their Facebook page so I could stay up to date on the stops they would be making while they were here.

When a group of friends that run early every Monday morning learned that the truck would be near their normal running spot from 6:00am-8:00am, I decided to join them.  We met up at 4:55am for a short run then came over to the Lululemon Test Truck to get in line.

What is the Test Truck?
It’s exactly what it sounds like—it’s a truck where you get to try out a piece of Lululemon gear.  While you're there, you can also test out a pair of APL shoes which I heard were super comfy and light. (I opted out o…

Valentine's Day Gift Guide for the Runner You Love

Whether you’re someone who loves Valentines’s Day, someone who celebrates Singles Awareness day or someone who thinks it’s just another day, it’s always a good time to get something for that someone special in your life. If you’re shopping for  a significant other, your best friend or even yourself, here’s some things that I think are great for showing some love to the runner in your life.



73 Threads
Have you seen the tees and tanks made by 73 Threads? Not only are there some great prints, you get to pick your color tee or tank. The hardest part will be deciding which one you like best.  (And a big thank you to my friend Smitha for sharing the love-- use SDMOM to save 10% off your order.) And they aren't just for runners-- they have everyone covered from Triathletes to Sweet Tea drinkers. 




Chocolate
Seems clich√©, right?  But I’m not just talking about your normal chocolates.  I’m talking about Vega Protein Smoothie mix.  I actually am not a huge fan of chocolate, but I love my Vega ch…
