Meeting friends at our Nation’s Capital this weekend for this little event:
This is a running blog right? Sadly my injury has left me with not much running to discuss. No splits, average paces, or weekly tallies to count like I had hoped for. It’s breaking my heart. Being who I am though I always have something to talk about so before I go to D.C. I wanted to leave you with some of my running related product loves. I have always LOVED reading favorite running products on other blogs, finally my turn 😀
I won a pair of Smartwool socks in a trail race in Kitsap County, WA. I thought “Good thing I won these because I’d never spend so much on one pair of socks.” Then I wore them. These babies keep your feet dry, comfy, and blister free. These are the socks I love to race in. The price is slightly jaw dropping but I’ve learned they are worth it.
Nike Pacer Skirt: I was in my favorite running store trying to only get nutritional stuff. Then this caught my eye and I got it because it is so cute in person.Will I wear this for running? I highly doubt it but post race and errand running for sure. So I scoff at $14.95 socks I actually need but bought this because it was cute……judge away.
Toms Shoes: Flip flops are AWFUL for your feet! These babies are like wearing the minimalist shoes that are supposedly healthy except do not come with a side of strange looks from strange people. I’ll also tell you the best secret about Toms: Buy the kids shoes. They are cheaper and NONE of your friends will have them. These heart shapes ones were perfect for my little doll & I. Plus they squish well into an over packed race bag.
Eat.Think.Smile products have been popping up at many of the local races here in Virginia Beach. I became hooked on their Dark Cherry Bars and the very kind company sent a small box of their products to review. My kids dug into it all, proclaimed them as “yumtastic” and they are the pickiest of the picky. They are cocoa & oat filled all-natural, healthy goodness. My new favorite snack! For now I am trying to refrain from eating the rest so I can bring the box to share with friends in D.C. this weekend.
Are you racing this weekend? Which race? What distance? Run smart & Have fun!! Happy training to those not racing!
