Helloooooo Friday! It’s been a short work week but I’m still one happy camper to see ya. **Insert Happy Friday dance but with not a lot of twisting and jumping. I’ve got a 5 mile race tomorrow! BTW – it starts at 5 p.m. I’ve never done an evening race! What should I eat?**
Friday Favorites is back! Perfect for Friday well…because they both start with the letter F.
First, a little #MotherRunner brag
I’m finally jumping on the SpiBelt wagon. It’s been around for a long time but I never believed the hype. Lately, I’ve grown tired of wearing my Banjees Wrist Wallet with my phone on long runs. Ron has grown tired of having to put the cover back on my phone every time I take it out to shove into the little pocket on the back of some of my running skirts as well. So I thought I’d give the SpiBelt a chance even though every other belt (usually hydration) has irritating me beyond belief because it doe not stay in place. Seriously, you guys, this belt does not move at all. In fact, once it’s on, I forget it’s even there. No bounce. No riding up. Stays just where you put it. Absolutely love it. Let’s bring the fanny pack back!
Back in May when I was first going through my huge ass blister debacle, I had gone to my local running store for advice on what may be the problem. Was it the shoes? Socks? It was suggested I try running in Feetures Socks. Their ultra light weight Elite sock is meant to be a second skin. It even lets you know which sock belongs on the left or right. They’ve been the most comfortable socks I’ve ever owned and perfect for summer running. I just bought two more pairs recently. One has just a tad bit more cushion which I think I like the best out of all three.
Mini Babybel Mozzarella
We are a cheese loving family. Give my kids a cheese stick for a snack and they do the little happy seated dance in their chairs. The Mini Babybel’s are perfect for little fingers to open and enjoy alongside grapes for a quick snack. They are a delicious addition to Grilled Caprese Chicken.
