Friday Favorites and a Giveaway!

Life has been busy the past two weeks-- my Spring Break flew by and before I knew it, April is here.  I'm looking forward to a great month! (and of course, watching the Boston Marathon)  

Today's post is about some of my favorite things lately.

Running With Friends

Most of my runs are done solo, but it's so much more fun with friends.  I've been lucking enough to run a few times the past couple of weeks with friends.





Beach Days

Living in San Diego, sometimes I take the beach for granted.  I forget how relaxing and peaceful it can be.  I definitely need to go to the beach more often.




Photo Out-Takes

If you've tried to get an action shot when you're running, you know that sometimes you get some fun pictures that aren't great action shots.  My go-to prop is using a rock to prop up my phone and my self timer. 



Race Day Packet Pick-Up

I have a race this weekend and I love that I can get my packet on race morning.  The course is in a beautiful city, but it's about a 45 minute drive for me, so I'm glad that I don't need to make the drive twice this weekend.

ProCompression Lifestyle Socks

Sometimes I don't want to wear my compression socks.  Did you know that ProCompression makes socks that aren't compression, as part of their "Lifestyle" line.  They're the perfect length and super comfy.  



I love the lifestyle socks so much that when I realized I have a duplicate pair, I decided I wanted to share them with you.  I'm giving away a pair of ProCompression's Lifestyle socks with the blue and yellow stripes in size L/XL.*  Just enter in the rafflecopter below.

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…

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 cliché, 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…

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…
