Friday Faves: Current Loves & Obsessions

TGIF Friends! This week's Friday Five theme is Favorites so I decided to write about my current running & fitness loves & obsessions.

A special thanks to the DC Trifecta Bloggers (Courtney from Eat Pray Run DC, Mar from Mar on the Run, and Cynthia from You Signed Up For What?!) for hosting this link up! Make sure you check out their blogs as well!

 
Oiselle Holepunch Distance Shorts - My all-time favorite shorts are Oiselle Distance Shorts. They provide the best fit no matter the distance and I love all the extra pocket space for carrying essentials like keys, ID, a gel, etc. I have these shorts in virtually every color and wear them every day. So I'm thrilled to see there is a new variation available. The Midnight color is fantastic and I can already tell these shorts will be a new favorite in 2016.


Lululemon Salute the Sun Singlet II - This is my newest running tank and I love the way it fits! It's super lightweight with a flattering fit and the slit in the back adds a little style. Although it was made for yoga, I think it's perfect for running! 


Power Crunch Protein Energy Bars- After a long run or tough workout, it's important to refuel. Chocolate milk is still a favorite of mine, but lately I've been indulging in Power Crunch Protein Energy Bars. I received a sample bar at last year's Rock 'n' Roll San Antonio expo and liked it so much I bought a bunch when I found them at Trader Joe's. My favorite flavor is French Vanilla Creme - it kind of reminds me of those brightly colored wafer cookies I sometimes ate as a kid!


Nike Running Anti Blister Lightweight Low Cut Tab Socks - How's that for a tongue twister? In all seriousness, these socks are awesome. They are super thin which means there's less fabric to bunch up in your shoes. Also they are snug fitting which means they stay in place further reducing the risk of uncomfortable rubbing on your foot. And the price can't be beat - $10 for a pair of running socks is a bargain :)


Run WI T-shirt - I bought this t-shirt at Performance Running Outfitters a few weeks ago and it's already a favorite. It's super soft and hits at the hip and comes in several pretty colors - I chose turquoise :) A must-have for any Wisconsin runner! 


That's it for the week! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Let's catch up again soon. 

Tell me: What are your current loves & obsessions?

  2. I wish I felt comfortable enough in my body to wear tanks and shorts. I'm a Tshirt and capri girl all summer, even when it's over 90 degrees.

    1. I am sure you would look great in a tank and shorts but understand it's best to wear what you feel most comfortable in :)

  3. I have tried those power bars before too and I did like them. I wish Dallas rock n roll would have had them this yr at their expo. As I'm here now and didn't see any.

    1. That's too bad they weren't at the Dallas expo! I hope you had a great race - I would love to race Dallas someday!

  4. I'll have to check out Power Crunch Protein Energy Bars next time I'm at my running store or the Cherry Blossom expo next weekend. I like trying out new types of fuel.
