Life, Running

Friday Favorites!!

Hi Friends:)

I’ve got a quick list of my Friday favorites for you this week!

The last two weeks have been an absolute blur; between organizing my new classroom and just re-adjusting to a school-year schedule, I have been on the run from 6am-9pm each and every night. I do about 8000 steps a day just at work, then hit the gym afterwards, so 9pm has been my standard bedtime this week.

Here are a few things that helped me get through this week!

  1. Halotop: Birthday Cake– This is what I have promised myself as a friday afternoon treat once this week is over. In moments of drowsiness, I daydream about eating this entire pint while watching Grace and Frankie on Netflix wearing sleep shorts and an old college hoodie. 
  2. This Post on Run Selfie Repeat. Being injured all summer and being unable to run the full marathon I’d planned was more than just a nuisance; it was a blow to my identity as a runner. Kelly talks about how calling yourself a runner can be hard, especially considering the outside’s world perceptions and expectations for athletes. I love Kelly’s instagram, vlog, and blog, and this article is especially worth a look.
  3. This Bag. I have no sponsors, so everything I talk about on this blog is legit something I love, love, love. I’ve used a Scout Uptown Girl bag for work for the last 3 years and it is literally the best. I love how organized it keeps me even when my days are long and winding. If you’re a teacher or do some other job where you carry more than just a purse to and from work, check out Scout Bags!! 
  4. This coffee/tea cup that DOESN’T SPILL!! I picked this up at a TJ Maxx a few months back, and I am so obsessed. Last year my adorable ceramic coffee cup leaked all over my car on the reg. This cup doesn’t spill, doesn’t leak, and keeps my tea nice and toasty all morning! 

  1. This new T-Swift song. It has gotten me through my workouts every day this week. I’m so looking forward to the full album in a couple of weeks.
