Anyhow, today, I decided to write about a few things I'm currently obsessed with. And of course I hope you'll also tell me what you're loving right now!
RockNBlog 2016 - Learning I'm on the 2016 team made my week. I loved being part of this super fun group last year and look forward to another year of connecting with teammates and sharing the Rock 'n' Roll race love.
Brooks Defyance 9 - I've been wearing Brooks Defyance shoes since I started running and after learning a new model was available I had to have it. So I took a trip to Performance Running Outfitters and it was love at first sight. I love the grey/aqua/purple combo and the shoes fit like a dream. Nice and cushy for logging everyday training miles.
Garmin 230 - While I was at Performance Running Outfitters, I also picked up a new Garmin watch. I've never really been into tracking my runs other than speedwork, tempos and long runs but I think it's because I didn't really like my old watch. Now that I have a new watch - notice, it matches my new Brooks shoes! - I see myself wearing one more often.
Jelly Belly Petite Sour Hearts - I just can't get enough of these tasty sweet & sour hearts. The cherry/grape flavor is super delish and the teeny size is so cute. There may just be a few pounds of these little candies stockpiled in my apartment right now ;)
Voluspa Mini Decorative Tin Candles - I love scattering scented candles around my apartment and these are my current favorite. Because they are small you can use them up pretty fast which means you get to try out new scents. Another fun way to use the candles is to burn two at once in the same room to create a unique blended scent. My favorites so far include Prosecco Bellini, Laguna, Pink Citron and Pomegranate Blood Orange.
Olympic Marathon Trials - It's a race that only happens every four years and I can't wait to see who makes this year's marathon team! My picks are, in no particular order:
Men: Meb, Ritz, Rupp
Women: Desi, Shalane and either Deena or Amy Cragg.
I will also be rooting for Kara Goucher - one of my favorite female distance runners. I would love to see her make the team although I think it will be tough given the talent she's up against. But you never know - Kara is one of the greats so I wouldn't be too surprised if she nabs a spot on the 2016 team.
My questions for you:
- What are your current obsessions?
- Are you watching the Olympic Marathon Trials this weekend? If so, who are you rooting for?
