Friday Favorites

Whoo hoo! I think I'm getting back into the swing of things. I might not be blogging on the daily, but two weeks in a row of Friday Favorites?! I'll take it! It probably doesn't hurt that I can put these together sporadically throughout the week when things strike my fancy, but hey, I'll take what I can get! And hopefully you will too ;) Anywho, onto the main event!

Sparkle Athletic + PRO Compression Socks

These three pairs of Sparkle Athletic socks (made exclusively by PRO Compression) actually went live last Friday but my post had already published by the time I saw them so had to wait a week to share them. I'm a little bummed the Sparkle socks only some in S/M, since I wear an XS, but the patterns on them are pretty AMAZEBALLS! The rainbow ones remind me of the cloud pattern from Toy Story... anyone else?! And the donuts and holiday lights are awesome too!

Be A Kind Human Collection from the GSF

I can't tell you how much I love this new collection from the Gwendolyn Strong Foundation. I think I might just need every piece in the line! The slogan is awesome, the logo is amazing and the proceeds go to help increase global awareness of Spinal Muscular Atrophy. We all have a part to play, no matter how small or insignificant we believe it is (although, NEWS FLASH, it's not small or insignificant!). It all starts with kindness. Small conscious decisions can lead to big positive impact. We have power in our choices, in our purchases, in holding the door for a stranger, in teaching our children the value of saying "please" and "thank you." And, guess what! If you buy more than three items in the "BE A KIND HUMAN" collection and you can get 10% off your entire order with code: KINDHUMAN.

Helpful Bloggers of 2019

I was just notified that I was included in a list of KT Tape's 2019 Roundup of Helpful Blogs for Runners. Seeing as I normally right most of my posts for myself (as a way to remind myself what went down at a race or share with my family some pictures of recent adventures), I'm stoked and honored to be a part of the crew. If you are in need of some running help or motivation, you should definitely give this list a look (and follow some {or all} of the awesome runners there)!



Okay, okay, so we aren't much for celebrating anniversaries and 11 years isn't some landmark year, but since our wedding anniversary falls on a Friday Favorite, it sort of feels like I "need" to include it ;) But honestly, I loved our wedding because it was "us". We got married in the sun, by the water, had cupcakes, ate yummy vegetarian food and even "rode away" on a beach cruiser with Diet Mountain Dew cans tied to the back of it ;) Every day isn't rainbows and unicorns, but most of them are when you marry your best friend (and keep God at the center of your relationship). #11YearsDownForeverToGo

Happy belated anniversary! Congrats on being a helpful blog for runners. I, myself, am not a runner but my 21 yoa son is and I sometimes pass along your info or product reviews to him. I'm totally diggin' those socks.
