Running news, Facebook happenings, running funnies

Good morning and happy Tuesday!

My Monday was good but fairly uneventful (read: I did not take any pictures) 😉

Instead of doing a recap of what has now become my Monday routine, I thought I’d take some time to talk about some of the latest running news that caught me mid-scroll on Facebook- with some running funnies in between. Because why not?!

How to Make Yourself Poop– Yeah, I went there. And yeah nobody wants to talk about it, but we as runners need to. Or at least need to be aware of and plan for it.

Make Eight Days’ Worth of Lunch– The title of this article got me to click. It’s definitely something worth me giving it a shot, but it kind of just reminds me of chili. I know I can make chili and eat it everyday as leftovers…

Inspiration Awards: Kayla Montgomery– Such an amazing girl! I first heard about her story on an ESPN piece (link in article), she was inspiring then and still continues to be.

When You Pit Trail Runners Against Road Runners, Who Comes Out On Top?– Very interesting read! Definitely makes you think!

My Life Outside of Ultrarunning– Beautiful story of how you can still have it all.

A quiet start to week makes me happy and another round of awesome and random things of my Facebook Saves

Good morning and happy Tuesday!

My Monday was great and rather quiet, and that’s just how I like it. The work day went by rather quick, and then it was time for errands.

The Boy and I headed back to Costco as we somehow got confused about their closing time the previous night and ran out of time. We didn’t get any cold items at Costco, so I asked if I could run into Nordstrom rack for a bit. I’m really loving that store, but I didn’t find what I was looking for. I did however, find quite a few Brooks at a nice discount. The didn’t have the pair I wanted in my size, but it was nice to see they carry them.

The remainder of our night was spent being lazy, which gave me a chance to clear out some of my Facebook Saves, which means…

Busy start to the week, quick Costco run, and another round of the Awesome and Random thing in my Facebook Saves

Good morning and happy Tuesday!

I had a great Monday, and I hope you did as well!

I loved reading everyone’s race recaps from this weekend. It makes me want to find a race to do much sooner than November’s Route 66. 😉

I had a pretty productive day yesterday. I wanted to wake up earlier than normal, but that didn’t play out so well. I’m going to keep working at it because I’d really like to join the early-morning runners club (yeah, that’s just something I made up- but it sounds like fun, huh?).

For lunch, I made a giant salad for our Salad Pool.

I really wanted to run after work, but I had a 6:30 meeting to get to…and trust me, they wouldn’t want me showing up all sweating and stinky. So, I grabbed some dinner and headed to our South Tampa office to wait until it was time to go.

I went all out for dinner. Fancy! ;)

I got out of my meeting a bit early and rushed over to Costco. I was planning to go today, but realized that was not going to be the most convenient for me. I was in and out in no time, which was much appreciated.

I spent the rest of my night reading and attempting to see how much bigger I can make my foam roller bruise. Yeah! So this happened. Oh, and yes it is much lovelier in person. It looks like somebody beat me with a wet noodle. 😦
