Happy High Five Friday!

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

1 ) Tall trees and dirt make me happy.

2 ) Since my gym has been closed for construction, I’ve been back in the basement for workouts.  It’s given me some time to get back to handstand practice which I have been severely lacking on.

3 ) Sunrise’s that don’t disappoint.

4 ) Hydrangea’s are my favorite.

5 ) Who says running doesn’t pay?  #boom

5 Good Reads

1 ) There’s a Mama on the Other Side of Your Judgemental Facebook Post – Moral of the story: what’s best for your family may not be best for another.  Your job isn’t to chastise anyone who doesn’t have the same opinion as you.

2 ) Inside the World of Wimbledon Ball Boys and Girls – Watching Wimbledon, I’ve always been fascinated with the bally boys and girls.  They are always on it! And now I know why.  It’s a serious, serious job that thousands of kids apply for.  It takes months of training prior to Wimbledon.  And of course, there’s dealing with the players little quirks.  So stressful but so very cool!

3 ) Here’s Why One of My Favorite Words is Grit – Grit was (is?) my word of the year.  Back in January, I chose that word because I love that it sounds bad ass and I felt like I needed to channel my inner bad ass to get things done this year.  Kristin agrees “I gain clarity and grit when I sweat, when I make the effort and honor the commitment to show up and get to work.”

4 ) Training and the Art of Stress Management – There’s good stress and there’s bad stress.  Don’t let the bad stuff derail your training.  Easier said than done, right?

5 ) Ask the Trail Sisters: Staying Safe – Whether you run on trails or the road, these tips are great for anyone.  It sucks that we can’t just go out for a run and zone out.  Be alert always.

  1. Happy Friday! Hydrangeas are my favorite flower too! (That and peonies…)
    Loved the article on trail running – safety is so so so important while running! I wish we didn’t have to worry about that stuff too – everything seems to have changed so much since I was growing up running. :(
    I’m high-5ing summer weekends! I can’t wait to soak up all the family time in the sun and on the water :)
