Some Friday Randomness + Donuts!

Hey there!

I feel like I’ve been writing a ton of workout and race recap posts on the blog lately, and I just felt like doing something a little different today. I have to admit – even I get bored talking about mile splits and cross-training routines sometimes! Variety is the spice of life after all, right? Don’t worry, the race recaps aren’t goin’ anywhere (this is a running blog after all!), but today I figured I would just share some of the random stuff that’s been on my mind lately.

  • I am obsessed with nail polish. As you might be able to tell from My Instagram

2 Generations RunningI’ve been slowly accumulating a diverse collection of colors – Mostly the no-light gel ones because they really do last longer than regular polish, which I have a tendency to chip in the span of 3 hours. For a big race (like Delaware), I love getting them done. It just adds to that feeling of it being extra special! And it makes me run faster obviously.

  • Currently, I’m in the process of losing not one, not two, but THREE different toenails from aforementioned big race.

I’m curious though – to the runners out there who are running marathons really close together, what do you do to fight toenail issues??

  •  The whole “Fueled by Coffee” tagline on my blog really isn’t a joke. Between the two of us, my mom and I drink enough coffee to single-handedly support the economy of a small South American country.

Fueled by Coffee.No road trip is complete without a trip (or 3) to Starbucks. We’re still waiting for them to reach out with an endorsement deal though. 😉

  • I am in love with this flavor of Clif Bar.

White Chocolate Macademia Nut Clif BarI’ve tried all the other flavors, but none of them come close to the amazingness that is White Chocolate Macadamia Nut.

  • This one is really no secret to the blog, but I LOVE the whole Bachelor/Bachelorette franchise and I am so psyched it’s finally back! Mondays are finally exciting again!

Bring on the Men!

  • Did you know it was Global Running Day on Wednesday? I celebrated with a really quick 2 miler, and I loved seeing everyone’s posts about it on Instagram and Twitter. So many happy runners out there! I also don’t think it’s a coincidence that Global Running Day is followed so promptly by National Donut Day.

National Donut Day Dunkin Donuts is giving out free donuts today with the purchase of any beverage!

Hope you all had a great week! Enjoy the free donuts out there today! My mom and I have a 5K coming up this weekend so check in next week for a recap. 🙂
