Happy High Five Friday!

Remember last week when I was loving/complaining about all the snow we were getting dumped with?  What a difference a week makes!  It’s been an absolute gorgeous week with temps in the 50s and 60s.  I love winter but I’ve got some serious spring fever right now!

5 from Instagram – I share more pics on Instagram.  Are you following me?  Please do!

1 ) Winter warrior.  How was this just a week ago?

2 ) I’m usually a solid legging kind of girl.  I decided to get out of my comfort zone and get crazy with a print.  I’m so glad I did!  These capri’s (which are more like legging length for me) are awesome.  The print is so cute and they are the perfect legging for yoga.  I’ll be sharing more of the new prAna spring line soon.  FYI – you can get 15% off your order from prAna.com with code S4P17HFM at checkout!

3 ) Snowshoe racing aka slogging with tennis racquets strapped to your feet.

4 ) The sunrise and sunsets have been on point this week.

5 ) Chillin’ in our backyard igloo that we Ron made. 🙂

5 Things

1 ) Fitness Charities to Inspire You – Love this list from Carly.  I know since the election, I’ve felt the need to donate more and just plain DO more for good causes.  If you want to help out a fitness philanthropy that empowers, inspires and improves the lives of children, disabled athletes and US veterans through running and fitness, this list is for you!

2 ) What Happened When I Started Meditating Before Each Run – Can I see a raise of hands of how many people say they would like to meditate more?  My hand is raised high as I’m sure it is for the majority of you. Running is like a moving meditation for me so do I really need to meditate before I run? Apparently -> “I slowed down in my mind but my legs kept their pace.”

3 ) I Wore JNCO Jeans for Seven Days to Find Myself – This is nothing related to running, fitness or healthy living but is freakin’ hilarious.  I remember the JNCO trend from the 90s and early 2000s. Thankfully, I never had a pair nor did I ever want a pair. The author of this article did and it’s quite hilarious to read his account of reliving the bad fashion of that era.

4 ) Kicking Up Dirt – The author of this echos my feelings on trails.  Road running seems to have lost its luster to me. The trails make me feel like a kid again.  Who doesn’t want that?

5 ) How to Run 100 Miles – I don’t want to run 100 miles.  No thanks.  But the moral of this post is not that everyone SHOULD run 100 miles.  It’s that everyone should set big goals for themselves and push for those goals.  Whatever they are – > “Anyone can genuinely learn how to seek and push their own limits. Because life might just be the greatest ultra of all.”
