Three Things Thursday

Whoa! It’s Thursday. How did that happen?  It’s been a weird week. I was home from work yesterday because Ron had to be somewhere all day. He is usually home with the kids on Wednesdays. So I’ve enjoyed a little mini vacation from work this week. Nice! Only one more day of work and it’s a 4 day weekend for me. Woo-hoo!

Three Things ThursdayThings on my brain right now.

1. Sports Bras

I’m in dire need of some new sports bras. I knew that you should replace them often because they just aren’t supportive after washing/drying etc. This post really made me think about it. Sports bras should be replaced every 3-6 months if using for high impact activities? My current ones are at least 1 year old. D’oh!

I’ve tried many different brands. A few that I have liked are Moving Comfort, Champion, and surprisingly Old Navy. I’m not a huge fan of Old Navy for me but love them for kids clothes. I bought 2 sports bras last year during a sale. They were cheap ( I think under $20/each) but they have been great! Supportive but not too constrictive. So I think it’s time to ditch the old ones. Any suggestions?

2. Trail Running

I love trail running! Sadly, it isn’t in my life as much as I want it to be. I don’t feel comfortable or safe running on a trail by myself or early in the morning. That’s one obstacle. Second, most of the trails around me aren’t that long so I’d have to do circles to get any distance. I will jump on a small section of trail near my house for portions of a run.

I love my old Brooks Adrenaline GTS 11’s. I think I need to scour the internet for another pair. Seriously the BEST shoes I’ve ever run in!

3. LoziLu – Women’s Mud Run


Have you heard of this? Yesterday morning, my friend, (who I have yet to meet in person but lives less than 20 minutes from me!) Cheryl, started a twitter chat trying to round up healthy living bloggers from New Hampshire for a get together. There are quite a few of us (Run Faster Mommy, Running Escapades, Organic Run Mom, Comfy Confident, The Purple Giraffe, Live Fit Daily)who just so happen to all be FitFluential Ambassadors. The get together is still in the works but Heather suggested we all do the Lozilu Mud Run. I’ve been wanting to do an obstacle course run for some time. I’m thinking this is the one! We’ve already got a team name: Badass Blogger Babes! Woot woot!

  1. I’m SO guilty of not throwing out sports bras after 6 months. Whoops! Honestly I wonder if this applies to well-endowed women more (because I am certainly not one of them). I’d love to try the Moving Comfort ones though, I’ve heard they are super comfortable. I may have to go on a sports bra scavenger hunt and find them!

    A mud run sounds awesome!! I’ve always wanted to do a obstacle course type race. Its a nice change from the usual.

  2. I love trail running but like you I am too afraid to go alone. For the past 3 summers I have run a series “Blue Crab Bolt” trail runs. They are held a local parks in my area and fun challenging!! On the bra front…I love my VS sports bra!! It the Victoria Secret Incredible. I even like it better then my TaTa for Lulu. Plus, you can use the $10 off coupon!!
