Will Run For Food

There's this cute little diner a mile up the hill from my house, we've been going there for Sunday morning breakfast after church for a few weeks now. This morning I thought it'd be a good idea to run there and treat myself to breakfast. I went the long way around and ended up logging 3.6 miles, met my dad on his way home from the gym and had some delicious strawberry crepes. All my miles were in the 13 to 13:30 range which is way faster than I have been running and it felt so good! Maybe it's counter-intuitive to reward yourself with food after exercising, but for me there is no better motivation!

List of Loves

Inspired by various blog posts I've read this week, here is my list - in no particular order - of things I'm loving these days:

1) Traders Joe's Cookie Butter - if you have not put this in your facehole you are missing out my friend! It is so delicious that I can't even come up with the right words to encompass it's majesty!

SO yummy!
2) Coconut Oil - It's all the rage right now so I had to check it out. I've been using coconut oil on my hair for a few weeks now and I am hooked! I put it on my ends on days I plan to wear my hair up (pretty much everyday) and it has made such a difference. My hair is softer and much less frizzy... also it smells good.

3) Evernote - have you guys used this app? I have been using it for a few days now to jot down ideas - mostly blog topics - that come to me in the middle of the work day. I'm sure that I haven't even scratched the surface yet of what this app can do but I already love it.

4) Birchbox - I heard about Birchbox back in March from a girlfriend of mine. She is one of the most stunningly beautiful people I know and I want to grow up to be just like her, so as soon as she told me about it, I had to check it out! Each month I get a little package in the mail with various trial size beauty products, some of them are whatever but some of them have been great. It's a fun treat to get a surprise package in the mail each month and I love trying all these new products!

I hope each of you have some things you're loving right now, I'd love to hear about them!

I Run... So I Have Something to Blog About

Apparently, today is National Running Day. Good thing I got up and did my 3 miles this morning. It felt amazing, the weather was perfect and my legs were happy. I had no idea it was a 'holiday' though, I just wanted to get a run in before my vacation-ish weekend starts!

Starting tonight, I have a packed few days and I'm so excited! My older brother and I have tickets to see Les Miserables tonight in Sacramento (with as many times as I've seen this show recently, you'd think it was my fav but it's actually not even in the top 5!). Tomorrow I have orientation and registration for next fall semester, then both brothers and I are heading to Anaheim. Friday (and possibly Saturday) we'll be hanging out at Disneyland - is it foolish to hope for short lines and small crowds this time of year? Then, I'll spend Sunday drinking wine with my BFF and her family. Hello, summer!

Are you celebrating Running Day today? Get up and get moving no matter how far you go!
