Marvelous is…

Let’s play a little catch up, marvelous style!

Marvelous is…My Boston Marathon Singlet. Isn’t it pretty? I can’t say I love the purple and orange colors this year, but I love this singlet. It’s absolutely perfect. I love that they added the B.A.A. unicorn. I know I should try it out on a run before race day, but I feel like it’s bad luck. BTW – 14 days!

Marvelous is…Running in shorts. I’ve had the pleasure of it being warm enough to run in shorts OUTSIDE twice in the past week. Yes, it was only in the low to mid 40s but it felt so good. My legs felt alive and free. Just like I woke up from a long winter’s nap. I refuse to wear full tights anymore this season. And I refuse to believe the big snowflake on the forecast for this week will actually happen. Oh and my knee is feeling 100% better.

Marvelous is…Stonyfield Oh My Yog! Seriously, you guys need this yogurt in your life. SO flippin’ good. It’s like dessert.

Marvelous is…Running hills. Ok. Hills really aren’t marvelous, but on my 14 miler over the weekend, I purposely picked the hilliest route I could think of. Mostly I did it for practicing downhills. The last time I ran a portion of the route was the Summerfest 10k back in July. It kicked my butt then but really didn’t seem that bad this time around. And I even had a wicked strong headwind the last 5 miles. It felt good to know that I’m getting stronger.

Marvelous is…Tom’s of Maine. I’m happy to announce that I am part of the Tom’s of Maine Goodness Circle. A friend of mine introduced me to their products 9 years ago when we moved to New Hampshire. They are a local company who also believes in giving back to the community in addition to providing natural products that never has artificial colors, flavors, fragrances, preservatives or animal testing. Did you know that they now have a whole line of body washes, lotions and lip care for the whole family? Stay tuned for more goodness from Tom’s throughout the year!

  1. I saw the picture of the singlet on FB and LOVED it! So cute and I think the colors will suit you! But please, for the love of God, woman, wear it before race day!!! Throw something on top if you feel unlucky about it – you don’t want to find a weird seam that starts chafing you at mile 10 or so.

    I can’t believe how soon it is until Boston!!!

  2. Ah the excitement is building!!!! Love the singlet and I’m with you on the bad luck thing. I wasn’t able to wear shorts here (it actually snowed on Easter!) but I was in just my sports bra and tights by the end of my long run over the weekend and it felt so LIGHT!
    PS – my boys are addicted to Tom’s toothpaste. It’s all they ever use.

  4. I’m looking forward to running the Hollywood half-marathon this weekend. Also, I usually take the couple of weeks after a race that is my rest period to try some new exercise classes / activities before I get back into adding longer runs back in. I usually avoid new activities before a race, but after a race is my time to explore them.
    I’m thinking a couple of surf lessons are deserved after this race.

  5. So many great things here. Love the singlet! They did a nice job with the design. I love Tom’s and didn’t know that they had a lotions and lip balms. I’m always on the hunt for natural body care products for my children, so good to know.

  6. Marvelous is waking up to the house in order after having 12 people over all day yesterday – everyone is so wonderful at helping which I am especially grateful for at 38 weeks pregnant! LOVE Tom’s of Maine – I use their soap and toothpaste but haven’t tried their other products.

    1. That is truly marvelous! And the Tom’s of Maine body wash, lotions, lip care are all brand new. Just as good as the products we already love!

      1. I know the store I buy Tom’s from doesn’t carry everything in general so I wasn’t sure what was new and what wasn’t. I’m sure their new products are equally awesome!

    1. Exactly! I’m not thrilled with the color of the jackets, but it’s Boston. I HAVE to get a jacket and I’ll still wear it!

  7. That singlet! You’re getting so close! Hard to believe it’s just around the corner. And love that you picked the Summerfest route. There were some killer hills on that course! It never let up.
