Hey Thursday peeps! Don’t know how you’re feeling, but i need the weekend to get here. It’s supposed to be 50 degrees so i’m looking forward to an easy, long run OUTSIDE. And I’m officially boycotting winter. (don’t worry i do this every year, just let me continue with my rant) I don’t care if it snows again or the skies turn grey until June!! I’m putting away my winter clothes and coat and pulling out the summer shorts! I’m sure that seeing summery clothes hanging in the closet will make me happy. 🙂
A few other things that are cheering up the winter blues…
NUUN has a Facebook giveaway going. Prizes: (1) – Entry paid in full for a Hood to Coast team in 2014, plus a team hydration kit from Nuun Hydration. Enter by Monday and cross your fingers! I’m definitely going to run a relay sometime in the future!
Next, I finally bought a Blender Bottle, so expect some fun smoothie/protein recipes in the near future. This purple bottle is definitely going to help me take in extra calories at the gym and will come in handy for post run recovery during marathon training.
Yesterday I got a really fun surprise in the mail. An autographed Shalane Flanagan card! She sent one because I donated a small amount to her One Fund Boston fundraising page. I can’t wait to watch her race this upcoming Boston Marathon!
I was given a Rodan & Fields (makers of Pro Active) mini facial kit from a family member, which included a microdermabrasion paste and serums. I finally got an extra minute to try it out this morning. Results? My skin felt uber clean and smooth afterward. I have sensitive skin, so i could only use a small amount at a time. I’m going to use it once a week for the next few weeks and see how I feel about the product, but so far so good! If you want to check out more Rodan & Fields products, visit Cristina’s webpage!
I’m leaving you with more random to get us to Friday! Here’s a picture of me and my future sister-in-law on a girls trip, sitting in a giant chair during the day. It was summer and warm and beautiful in upstate NY.
Later that evening we visited a wine bar, that had wine on tap…
Which then led to another visit to the giant chair…
Anyone else out there get cabin fever/spring cleaner fever as badly as me?
