Five on Friday

This is my first Five on Friday! I have seen a lot of other bloggers do this and thought I would jump on the bandwagon as well! So it’s time to tell you about the 5 things I’ve been loving lately. 1. St. Tropez gradual self-tanner. I am not going to lie, I love having a tan – especially on my face. I really love this product because it doesn’t look fake and is very subtle but gives you a…

9 Reasons to Join a Running Group

I posted not too long ago about going out of my comfort zone. I joined a running group! More specifically, a training group for the Chicago Marathon. I found a group here through Fleet Feet. I loved Fleet Feet in Chicago and knew they had training groups and just group runs in general so I figured I would look one up here in Nashville. Lucky me, there are two (Brentwood and Green Hills) and they had a training group going…

I’m just going to get straight to the point in this blog post – I have been experiencing burnout lately. Burnout with running. Burnout with blogging. And burnout just in general. This is why I haven’t posted a blog in a while. I just started feeling really run down and needed a break. I am the type of person that likes to take on a lot.

Stepping out of your comfort zone is hard because (duh) it’s uncomfortable. I looked up the exact definition of uncomfortable and it’s described as “causing or feeling unease or awkwardness”. Awkwardness – exactly. I don’t like that awkward feeling. But I’m learning to accept it more. In the past couple of years, I have had to step out of my comfort zone more times than I probably wanted. I like being in my own little world with my friends, husband,…

The perfect sports bra has been found!

I told you recently that I am now a Brick Betty Fit Professional and I’m still very excited about this new adventure! As I learn more and more about this company, I thrive on the passion, quality, and excitement they bring to their clothing line. Recently, I tried out the Brick Betty bra. It looked great on the website but of course seeing it in your hands is always different than on the internet. The very first thing I noticed…

I am now a Brick Betty Fit Professional!

I have been wearing workout clothes on a regular basis for over 10 years now. Not only do I work out in them, I wear them on a regular basis to run errands, travel, hang out around the house, play with my child, etc. And why not? They are comfortable and thankfully, these clothes are actually becoming cuter and quite stylish! For their intended purpose though, workout clothes should really be of great quality. I realize a lot of people…
