Happy Friday! It’s going to be 79 degrees today – 79 degrees!! Of course the weather won’t stay this way for long but I’m not going to complain. Sunshine and warm weather is okay with me for a few days. Of course Sunday it’ll cool down (and there is now a 70% chance of rain…) but for a half marathon that I’ve been training for in the winter I’m not going to complain.
Before I try to make it through the work day so I can enjoy the weather, I want to check in and share a few things I’ve been obsessing over this week. Have a great day 🙂
New Running Shoes
My old shoes have a lot of miles on them. A lot could be an understatement. I knew I needed new ones so I decided to order the exact same version of my current shoes. Brooks Ravenna running shoes are the shoes I’ve been running in since high school. Honestly I think I started with version 3 so it’s been while with them. Brooks has released version 9 of the shoe but I stuck with version 8 since it was so close to the half. I ordered a different color and have broken them in so we’re ready to roll now. I just wish they weren’t so clean still haha. Anyone else feel a little silly running hard with bright and clean shoes? It can’t just be me!
I stumbled across this podcast that started back in 2015 and downloaded the first few episodes to try out. Yes I know I’m very behind on this podcast 😉 The podcast is narrated by two men who are making a documentary about Maura Murray who went missing in February 2004 after she had a car accident in New Hampshire. Since then there has been no confirmed sighting of her. It’s a really interesting podcast. I’ve flown through the episodes and am now on episode 20. I love listening to it while I’m working since I’m someone who needs a little noise to focus.
There’s certain jewelry I wear everyday and this Alex and Ani necklace is becoming a staple in my wardrobe. It was a gift from Alex’s parents for Christmas 2016 and I honestly didn’t wear it that much when I first got it aside from every now and then. In the past two weeks, I’ve worn it at least 5 times. It’s such a simple piece but it adds a little something to a basic sweater or shirt that I love. Unfortunately it doesn’t seem like this exact style is made by Alex and Ani anymore but this one is similar. For a cheaper option I found this necklace that looks similar as well.
Now that the weather is getting warmer, I’ve broken the shorts back out for running. The Nike tempo shorts are hands down the best workout shorts I’ve ever run in. I’ve strictly been buying this type since high school. They last so well through what feels like a hundred washes. On me, the shorts don’t ride up during any type of workout. If built in underwear bothers you then you may not like these. Personally I don’t mind that part of them but just try them on if you aren’t a fan. These shorts may change your mind on them. One of the best parts to me is that they basically come in every color imaginable and in a ton of different patterns.
Question of the day: What’s one thing you’ve been obsessed with this week?
