Friday Favorites

Don't you love four day work weeks? I think every Monday should be a holiday.  It's Friday again and here's a few of the things I've been loving this week.

Pumpkin Spice Latte

I believe there are two types of people- those who love pumpkin spice lattes and those who hate them.  I am on Team PSL and I love that it's Fall again at Starbucks.  I know Fall doesn't officially start for a couple of weeks, but the PSL is one of my favorites.  It's a little taste of happy in a cup.  (I prefer them cold with an add shot and two extra pumps of pumpkin.)

Road ID

As a runner, I am always concerned about my safety.  Whether I'm running a race or running with friends, I want to be prepared for the "what ifs." RoadID helps me with that.  With my name, age, emergency contact and important medical information readily available my RoadID bracelet talks for me in case there's ever a situation in which I can't talk.

There are several RoadID options available. …

Run Streak- Day 100

A few weeks ago, I posted about my run streak.  (If you missed that post, you can read it here.) At that time, I said my plan was to streak for 100 days.  Well today, I reached 100 days-- here are some of the things I've enjoyed most about the streak.

Trail Running
In the past 100 days, I've run more trails than I have the entire time I've been running.  I'm discov…

Friday Favorites

Another week and it's already September.  As fun as my summer was, I'm definitely looking forward to Fall-- it's my favorite season full of boots, scarves and everything pumpkin spice.  I ended August with 144.5 miles and I'm looking forward to seeing what this month brings.  Here's a few of the things I've been loving this week.

Pro-Compression Lows and PC Runners

If you’ve seen my running pictures, you know that I love my ProCompression socks.  Not only do they make a difference when I run and for recovery, they come in so many awesome colors and designs.  

With the warmer temperatures in the past few weeks, I’ve been wearing the lows and PC runners on more of my runs. I love them just as much. And I can still be #RunMatchy with the colors.  They also make the transition from run to errands a little easier.  And let's be honest-- even though I am excited about fall, I live somewhere where the weather will continue to be warm and our cold spell means it's…
