High Five Friday + Giveaway!

High Five Friday August 12 2016

Hello, hello!

Happy High Five Friday! Want to get in on the hand slappin’ action? You can find all the details HERE.

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

Ears and heart wide open. When you stumble upon giant ear sculptures in Vermont while on your run, you must #stopdropandyoga. Isn’t it so Dr. Seuss-ish? Definitely one of my most favorite things ever.

There’s nothing like a pop of red against a back drop of green.

Yesterday morning I woke up at 4:30 a.m., drove to the coast for sunrise paddleboard, went home, brought the kids to camp and then ran 7 miles. I was toast. Literally. It was 85 degrees with icky high humidity. Summer is not over yet!

Everyday is a winding road. Where will your run take you?

Jersey cows are my favorite. They are just too cute.

5 Things

24 Random Acts of Kindness – We all could use more kindness in our lives. Why not help spread it around like pixie dust?

Be a Girl Who Runs – Love all of this especially -> “Be a girl who runs because a girl who runs knows how to adapt. Sometimes you need to sprint, and sometimes life takes endurance and long strides and slow breathing for hours. A girl who runs knows the difference.” Amen!

Cross Country Team Takes Shelter Dogs for Runs – What a genius idea! There are way too many animals in shelters. And animal shelters are always looking for volunteers to walk the dogs. Why not run with them?

Longevity – I love this post so much from Allie. Training for events no only is a fun thing to do, it helps with so many other aspects of life. And GOOD LUCK to Allie this weekend at the Triathalon Nationals! #YouRaiseMeUp! πŸ™‚

Orgain Back to School Survival Kit  – Can someone please tell me how it is the 12th of August already? Wasn’t it just the 4th of July? Orgain reminded me that back to school season is upon us. The long days of summer are winding down to the frantic days of school. I’m a huge fan of their protein powder so I was more than happy to try out their other products.

The Cold Brew Coffee-Protein is delish. And the plant based bars are perfect for on the go snacking. I had to split the Healthy Kids shakes evenly between my kids so to ensure that everyone had equal amounts to taste. The verdict: Thumbs Up!

Giveaway time – Orgain wants to send you a Back to School Survival Kit too!

To enter, tell me what you are most looking forward to this fall in the comments below.

Giveaway ends on Monday, August 15th @ 9 p.m. I’ll contact the winner via email once giveaway ends.

  1. I’m looking forward to bringing my one and a half year old daughter to a pumpkin patch for the first time!

  2. I love fall clothes, scents, and football. Oh and definitely looking forward to Thanksgiving it’s one of my favorite holidays. I’m a teacher, so I’m NOT looking forward to this back to school part of fall =/

  3. This fall I am looking forward to the amazing fall temps offered in the PNW and my son’s soccer games!!

  4. Being a FL Runner Mama, I’m looking forward to cooler, drier weather and all the fun family races we do together! It will be a couple of months until my daughter is up for another race, since she only runs the “festive” ones, haha! Thanks for sharing about Orgain! I’m always looking for healthier, portable options for the family!

  5. I am looking forward to the crisp nights, if talking weather. If talking in life: canning tomatoes, freezing corn and anything pumpkin flavored.

  6. I’m looking forward to cooler weather for running and pumpkin flavored everything! (Also that cold brew Orgain you mentioned sounds amazing!! I haven’t seen that one yet)

  7. i’m looking forward to starting my new job as a school psychologist(first year!) i’ve tried this protein powder a while ago and LOVED it but never had any of their other products — they look great!

  8. I’m excited to get the jogging stroller back out! I just had my second set of twins and am looking forward to taking them for a run while the older ones are in school.

  9. I hate to admit that I miss pumpkin spice everything and boots and sweaters. I LOVE summer and don’t want it to end, but I love the fall, too!

  10. I’m most looking forward to cooking more. The cooler weather and the heartier veggies make me want to spend more time in the kitchen.

  11. I can’t wait for all things pumpkin and cranberry. πŸ˜‹ apple picking and camp fires too. Halloween is a fun evening to look forward to as well.πŸ‘πŸΌ. Thanks happy fit mama for this great giveaway

  12. I’m looking forward to some fall clothes shopping. I had a baby a week ago and I never shop while pregnant because I feel it’s a waste.

  13. Can’t wait for the beautiful fall colors and running through piles and piles of crunchy fallen leaves!
