This area of Target should be called “Your Home is Hideous.” I love my home decor for the most part. There are some things I would change if money wasn’t an object, but you know, for the most part – I think its cute. (My forth grade teacher just keeled over at my use of commas in that sentence.) Anyway, the moment I walk into this are of Target, “Oh my goodness! Why has no one told me that my home is a hideous hell hole of horrors?!” This knick knack is $20, this throw pillow is only $30, and before you know it, you’ve blacked out and spent hundreds.
While I was at Target, my favorite oatmeal and my favorite LaraBar bites were both on sale. I hadn’t tried this flavor before and it is so good! You can snag them both off the website on sale as well.
A lot of you have asked about my dino cookie jar where I store my energy gels. Naturally, he came from Target, and his name is Steve.
Have you guys heard about the Iditarod Trail Invitational? The short race is 350 miles, which racers must finish before they are allowed to enter the 1000 mile race. The start is at Knik Bar in Wasilla and ends in Nome. Racers pull all their gear, food and drink. A sled can weigh over a 100 pounds! Imagine that calorie burn you’d have to keep up with. I first read about this in the most recent copy of Runner’s World. Photo from here.
As the temperatures are starting to rise in California (sorry my midwest and east cost friends!), I’ll start stowing some of my winter gear at the top of the closet. I use this to wash the waterproof things that I punished all through the rainy season.
Final important item: new favorite running song. One of the first lyrics is, “I will never stop like a marathon in Boston.” Enough said.
