Hello High Five Friday!
1. Yet another perk of being a super awesome morning runner.
2. Loving the super bright prints from Saucony this summer. I feel like a ray of sunshine in this shirt.
3. Avocado toast – so simple, so good.
4. Photo bombs away no matter where I try to get my yoga pose on.
1. What can you do to change the world? – I had the pleasure of meeting Katherine Switzer at the Boston Expo this year. What a gracious, amazing woman! She definitely knows a lot about how one action can change the world. This podcast confirms she’s truly amazing.
2. Recovery Yoga for Runners – If you can’t stand the thought of attending a yoga class, at least do these poses outline by Christine. All are my favorites and hit just the right spot for sore, tired runner legs.
3. Out there: Into the Light – This article is a couple of years old, but I just stumbled upon it this past week. If you’ve ever had a race that didn’t go as planned, read this. “Pain is temporary. Anger is temporary. Shitshows are temporary. Embarrassment, darkness, broken ribs (or my case – Posterior Tib Tendonitis) : temporary, temporary, temporary.”
4. How Graffiti Taught Me Kindness is Contagious – The power of words can swing your mood in any direction. Read or hear something positive, the flood gates of positive thoughts are wide open. Great reminder to surround yourself with positive.
5. Denali – This video would have me in tears no matter what, but it especially hit me hard this week. If you love dogs, you need to watch this. It’s amazing how an animal can become our best friend and know us so well. The bond between Ben and Denali shows it all.Prepare for the waterworks.
Our Cooper hasn’t been feeling the greatest lately. After 3 days of vet visits and tests, it appears he has Megaesophagus. Basically his esophagus is dilated, from lack of muscle tone. When he swallows food, it just sits in the esophagus, unable to continue into the stomach to be digested. We’re hopeful that we can manage it with changing the way he eats and what he eats. But it’s not easy and he’s at a high risk for aspiration pneumonia. Fingers crossed that Cooper has a lot more years to thrive and love.
