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!

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…

It’s the most run-derful time of the year which means it’s time to start your holiday shopping.I usually wait until the last minute, but this year I’ve vowed to start early.To help me do that, I’ve made a gift guide for all the runners in my life (and a list of things I secretly want myself) Hurts So Good Recovery is an important part of running.If you’ve ever had the chance to try Rapid Reboot recovery boots, you know how amazing they can be.The only downside? The cost.But they are definitely worth it. Their Own Personal Cheerleader I don’t mean the kind of cheerleader you’d find on the sidelines of Monday night football- I’m talking about the kind the can take anywhere they go.If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll often see pictures of my Momentum Wrap bracelets—they’re the perfect pep talk during my runs.These were on my list last year and made it again this year because of the new SPARK boxes—with four options to choose from, there’s something for everyone.

Run Streak: One Year

Last year my friend Jen hosted a Running Streak for the month of June—we were to run a mile everyday and at the end of the month everyone who had completed the month would be entered into a drawing for awesome prizes.  I love prizes and had several other friends signing up, so I thought, “Why not?”  Although it officially started on June 1st, I ran on May 31st-- so began my Run Streak with #StreakingWithTheCoolKids.

When I started the streak, I didn’t know if I’d make it through the entire month.  But after the first week, then the next, I though maybe I really can do this.  And sure enough, I made it through June running at least one mile everyday.  And once the month was over, I didn't want to stop.  So I kept running.  My new goal became 50 days and then 100 days.  Once I reached 100, I knew I had a decision to make.  So I kept running.

If you follow my adventures on Instagram, you know what happened next.  I have officially been streaking for one year and seven days.  From May 3…
