Well hello Friday, I’m glad we could meet again. It has been far too long. Thank you for making your presence known! I am looking forward to a weekend full of coaching my running group, racing, and fun with friends! I will be helping host a Mardi Gras style celebration over at my friend Ann’s house Sunday after the Cowtown Half Marathon. Oh, you thought Mardi Gras was over? Well, it certainly is not! This weekend promises some fun with beads, silly masks, and some crawfish! YUM!
It wouldn’t be Friday without me talking about some of my favorite things, now would it? Let’s get to what I’ve been digging as of late:
Pitbull on my Pandora radio
I don’t know what it is about that guy but he always makes me want to get up and start dancing. I mean really, you can’t help but to shake your hips a little bit when you listen to this man’s music. I also like to listen to the Pitbull radio station on Pandora because every song is up tempo and fast paced. It’s fun to rock out during a run.
Here’s one of my all time fave “Mr. 305″ songs…
Nike Tech Women’s Running Capris
I am in so much love with these. They are great for a run or any workout really. I even wear them sometimes when I teach dance class. Plus they have that fun zipper compartment in the back that you can put your keys in when you go run. I received these as a perk for volunteering as a coach with Luke’s Locker but there are some on sale on the Nike website.
Running tech shirts with sassy sayings on them
My favorite shirt right now is the one I bought from Skinny Runner that says “Run Like You Stole Something”. It is a super comfortable, moisture wicking top. I love workout clothes that you can wear just about anywhere. I would wear it to work but that would be pretty strange.
I also found this shirt on Pinterest and I think it will be the next addition to my running wardrobe.
CVS Active Sport Suncreen
I am a big fan on keeping your skin protected when the sun is out. Especially if you are spending lots of time outdoors. I swear by this sunscreen, and wear it year round. The facial kind keeps my skin happy and clear. Plus it’s way less expensive that the others on the market.
Tazo Green Ginger Tea
Great for that afternoon lull in the office, this is the perfect pick me up. I always add a little bit of honey since I like a little sweetness. I have replaced this with diet coke, which I can proudly say I have weened myself off of (Hallelujah!)
Last but not least, this youtube video makes me smile every time I watch it. That little girl is just too cute.
What is one of your favorite running accessories? Do you prefer coffee, tea, neither?
