Hey Guys! Happy Tuesday to you all! So I’m feeling a little spunky today, maybe it was yesterday’s rest day that has me feeling energized? I’m not sure but I am in the mood to change things up around here today. Variety is the spice of life right?! There have been quite a few products that I’m pretty in love with lately and thought it’d be fun to share!
Running Gear !
This is a running blog so we should probably start there!
Mizuno Inspire 8
I love these shoes! I used to run in the Wave Rider but was fitted for these when I started training for Chicago. Since I’ve been running in these I’ve had no trouble with my IT band and my foot always feels like it lands perfectly each and every time. Plus I kind of love the new colors, it’s different!
Lululemon Brisk Run Headband
I’ve done all my marathon training in this headband and absolutely love it! It never gets heavy with sweat, it keeps my ears warm, is super soft and it’s reflective. What’s not to love?
Garmin Forerunner 405
This is the best training partner ever. I love the virtual running partner, the pace display and the auto lap features. The auto lap is one of my new favorite features. It’s great to go back and compare my pace to the run and see exactly what I was running on the uphills and downhills. Plus, I like hearing the beep to know I ticked off one more mile.

This has been the best thing ever lately. It really helps to massage my legs to break up any soreness and tightness but it’s gentle enough where it feels really good. It’s very portable too so I can take it with me to Team in Training practice and even to work on those really sore days.
Nike Element Shield Jacket
Mine is from the Chicago Marathon which probably makes me love it even more but this jacket has been awesome for cold runs and just wearing to and from Team in Training practice. The thumb holes and little pockets in the sleeves for my hands are awesome. It’s fleece lined and warm but not heavy or bulky!
I bought this mat back in the fall and have really loved it! I always have my mat with me since I practice at work, at studios in Boston and even at home. It’s lightweight which makes it very portable. I also love the alignment marks on the mat. They help to make sure I’m just right in a pose without having to over think!
Fashion and More!
Cole Haan Ballet Flats
I just recently bought these flats. My favorite ones were stretched out and making my feet hurt when I wore them. I chose to go with a high-end flat and Cole Haan mostly because Michael only wears Cole Haan shoes and swears by them so I thought it was worth a try. And they are super cute! I’m loving them for the weekends, nights out and work.
Cole Haan Jitney Wristlet
I’m always on the go and always have a million bags with me. My work bag, my gym bag, my yoga mat bag, a bag for Michael’s house…you get the picture, a lot of bags. And I always have a purse. In an effort to simplify my life I’ve decided to only carry a wristlet with the essentials…money, lip gloss, my phone and that’s about it. This way I can just toss it into whatever bag I have with me and go. The reality is, when I don’t need one of my bags I don’t really need a purse either…a clutch or wristlet is just perfect. So I got this wristlet at Cole Haan and love it! Simplifying is good!
Prana Willow Duster Sweater
Michael and I stopped into REI a few weeks ago to look for a new jacket for him. I stumbled upon this sweater by Prana and absolutely love it! It’s the perfect weekend sweater and looks great with jeans and leggings. The cream color is really nice and it has pretty copper buttons! It’s also so soft and warm. I know I’ll be loving this in the fall and winter!
Lululemon Groove Pants
These have been a long time favorite of mine but these days I’m really loving them. They are one of my favorite pants to wear to yoga, to wear after long runs to drive home and just to spend a lazy Sunday in them. They are so comfortable and flattering. I’m also obsessed with the herringbone detail on the waistband! Love, love, love!
I’m also loving thinking about all my spring clothes, and admiring them in my closet. Only in a few short weeks I will be able to break them out! I’m particularly excited about all the spring jackets I have! Oh, and my Toms!
