I am so looking forward to the weekend! Long run, dinner with a good friend, hanging out with John, and of course snuggling with Bennie.
I realized I haven’t shared The Skimm with you guys! It is AWESOME. It is a daily email that gives a brief run down of the news around the world. The writing is sarcastic and funny, and it is a very good way to keep up with current events. You can check it out & sign up here.
I know many runners are big coffee drinkers before their run. I don’t like all that liquid sloshing around, plus I don’t want to wake up even earlier in time to have coffee. I like a quick shot of preworkout. I use Amino Energy from Optimum Nutrition, which I still love. However I decided to give PEScience Alphamine a try. I love their protein powder and they recently reformilated their Alphamine. The sunrise flavor tastes like a cocktail.
You guys know by now my obsession with Erica Sara Designs and Sarah Marie design studio. The best part is that they teamed up to make race jewelry! The Chicago charm is stunning.
Speaking of Sarah Marie design studio, I just learned her coffee mugs come in a 15oz size. Could this woman be crushing it any more? She clearly gets runners! Comfy tees and giant mugs? Yes please. For reference, I wear a unisex small because I like my tees to be roomy.
Lastly, I’m so happy with my Garmin 735xt. I did not think I could love a GPS watch more than my Forerunner 225, and even debated getting this one, just because the 225 has served me so well. BUT, this watch does the activity tracking thing and swimming, strength training, ect ect.
