Five Things Friday VII

TGIF! It’s been a long week around here, I had to pull some shifts at the yogurt shop + my other jobs + taking care of little bit, so I’m worn slap out. Anyone have fun weekend plans? I shall live vicariously through you from the comfort of my couch.

1.) Bootcamp is kicking my butt. I went 5 days last week and 4 days this week, and I have muscles that hurt that I didn’t even know I had. I have learned that 1.) My triceps are SUPER weak and 2.) I really hate burpees.


2.) ASICS launched a NEW shoe yesterday. 4 features to love about #MetaRun. 5 new ASICS technologies and 4 patents give you 4 features to love: superior fit, cushioning, stability and ultralight weight. Check out the website here!


3.) Don’t judge, but I think we will put up our Christmas tree this weekend. I want it up for Thanksgiving when my parents come in town, and the weekend prior to Thanksgiving is looking kind of hectic, so it may be this weekend. Get excited.

Look how tiny the wee one was!!!

4.) Operation Christmas Child shoebox collection week is next week. This is something near and dear to my heart and I have been doing it since the third grade. I plan to do a periscope showing what to pack and how to pack it for those interested. It may be today if I have time, I will tweet about it ahead of time.

5.) Today is the LAST DAY to register for the Holiday Shred hosted by my good friend Bobbi. If you need accountability to get you to and through the holidays without gaining weight then join in the fun! I will be participating!


6.) sshh I snuck in a 6th thing. Good luck to everyone running the runDisney Avengers races this weekend! Check out this post I wrote last year for Fitfluential for tips! Did you know 28,000 people are signed up for the races? So fun! Good luck everyone!

QOTD: When do you put your tree up?

Virtual Race Recap + Holiday Shred

The Faster than Boo virtual 10k was over Halloween weekend. Since I was in Tennessee for Halloween weekend, I ran my race when I got back.

We have had a TON of rain and yucky humid weather the past week or two, so while I would like to say I had a nice pretty run, that wasn’t the case. It was slow from all the garbage I ate on my trip, but it’s the furthest I have run in awhile so I was happy with being able to complete the distance.

I was also really happy with the medal. How cute is this? Love the ghost, love the spinner, and it glows in the dark! I promptly hung it up on my medal rack with my others.


I also love the tank top that came with the race packet. Super cute and comfy.


Over 1,200 runners participated in this virtual run! The best thing about it, was that over $500 was donated to the friends of Jaclyn foundation. If you would like to read more about the foundation, click here. Thanks Gone for a RUN for the entry and for supporting great causes like Jaclyn’s foundation.


Something else fun that is going on for the holidays that I wanted to share with you about is my good friend Bobbi’s Holiday shred. I won an entry to the shred at Refresh Summit and I can’t wait to join in!


Bobbi has been hosting shreds for awhile and offers great workouts, meal plan ideas, videos, and a private Facebook group. It’s a great way to maintain our weight through the holidays and have a little accountability. Come join the fun!

QOTD: Did you do a Halloween themed run? Have you ever participated in an online workout/challenge group?
