Friday Favorites

It's FRIDAY! Or maybe we should rename it FriYAY! Every time this day rolls around we all get a little extra pep in our step and why shouldn't we?! So I figured now is as good of a time as any to share a few of my current faves with all of you! This week is a little different from Friday Favorites of the past (some faves are reads, some are new flavors or versions of old favorites and some are just tried and true favorites), but hopefully you're still along for the journey!

Halo Top - Birthday Cake

I know I posted a review about the low-cal, high protein ice cream a while back but I was finally able to try the infamous Birthday Cake flavor earlier this week and it did NOT disappoint! It is so creamy and delicious that it's hard to show any self control/ restraint and not eat the whole pint in one sitting (but thankfully the whole thing is only 280 calories so even if you down it all at once it isn't completely a deal breaker)!

Little Beastling's "Naked On The Run" Post

I shared Christina's post on Facebook and Twitter last week when she wrote it, but in case you haven't read it yet I wanted to link it HERE as well. As you know, I have some pretty craptastic self esteem. I am super self conscious and just pretty much hate my body. Well, I made a comment on one of Christina's IG pictures and it started her thinking, which lead to the blog post. She makes some amazing points (even if some of them hit a little too close to home).

Rock 'N' Roll Series

I am stoked that my Rock 'N' Roll adventures are finally starting (I know some of the Heavy Medalists crew are already on their ninth or tenth RnR race for the year). I will be running San Diego next weekend (as the second part of the #Fontana2SD adventure), Seattle a few weeks after (thanks to my ambassador role with Athlete IQ and Alaska Airlines) and then later this fall I've got Los Angeles and Las Vegas. I'm hoping to add a couple more tour stops to my calendar, but have to work out the details such as flights and hotel costs before I pull the trigger (come on lottery, big money, big money!). If you want to join in on the fun, use CARLEEMCDOT when registering and save a couple bucks (valid on half marathon and marathon distances, some exclusions apply).

PS One of my friends, Victoria, has some AMAZING NEWS! She is unable to use her Global Tour Pass [valued at $479] (that is not the good part, but thankfully the reason is wonderful - she's expecting!) and is offering it up as a giveaway! YOU COULD BE JET-SETTING TO ALL OF THE RnR RACES IF YOU WIN THIS! Well, you'd have to pay for the jet, but all of the race registrations would be covered! Enter her giveaway HERE!

#WeRunSocial Momentum Wraps

You KNOW I love my #WristCandy, so it had to be OBVIOUS that a #WeRunSocial + Momentum Jewelry collaboration was like a match made in heaven for me. If you want to pick up one of these amazing wraps yourself you can head over to Pavement Runner's site and place an order TODAY! I don't mean to toot my own horn, but I may have had a hand in making these (and selecting the heather gray color) so it is AMAZING to see them become a reality!

QALO Ring - Foxfire

Just like with the first favorite, this one is another that I've talked about in the past, but this time it's a 'new-to-me' color! After I received a couple of the QALO rings to test and review, I placed an order for 4 more (Foxfire, red, purple and pink). The Foxfire has quickly become my new fave! I love stacking this one with my white, but my favorite feature is that it GLOWS IN THE DARK! How stinkin' cool is that?! [And if you want to place an order, click HERE to save $5!]

So, spill the beans, what are you loving lately?

That HaloTop looks yummy! I haven't found it near me yet, but I'm on the lookout.

I've heard such great things about RnR Seattle - I'm sure you will have a blast!

Looking forward to finally meeting you next weekend!
