A few things Friday

Happy Friday!
First of all, I want to say congrats to Abby, at Back at Square Zero for winning my Spartan Race giveaway! She's running a marathon this weekend, go wish her well!!

Ok, let's start with the most important thing.
New shoes, baby! I found these Skechers GoRun 2's on sale for over half off, and couldn't resist! They're minimalist, just like my Brooks Pure Flo 2's, so I knew I'd love them. I still haven't had a chance to run in them, but I did wear them to spin class, and they're super comfy! I'll be running 16 miles in them tomorrow.

Sushi twice in one week?? Yes, please. Last night the family took my stepson out to his fave restaurant for his 16th birthday, which is today.

My darling cousin came down from Indiana and stayed with me for a few days. We had so much fun together! One night we went out for margarita's and to see Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit. It was a great movie.

After my spin class on Tuesday, I just HAD to get some of this. It's been forever since I had froyo, and since it's across the street from spin, I knew this was my chance! And you know I can eat froyo or ice cream in any temperature, so I really didn't mind that it was only 10 degrees outside. 
Today is the last day to donate to the American Lung Association, for my Fight for Air stair climb race tomorrow! To participate, it's mandatory to raise $100, and I'm almost halfway there. If you can donate $5-$10, it would be greatly appreciated! Do so here.

 Have a great weekend, friends!!

Tell me anything, anything at all!


  1. Nice deal on the shoes! I've been looking at those ones too, where did you get them?

    1. I got them at Active Gear Up, online. I'm a member of, so I think that's why I got that price, I believe it was just for members. I've done a couple treadmill runs in them, and I LOVE them!

  2. your froyo looks amazing!! currently on day 2 of a juice cleanse, so would do anything for some of that right now..haha monday is calling my name! XO

  7. They break down fats easily and do not allow them to
    accumulate. I'd suggest this for people that have twenty pounds or less to
    lose. Another big benefit that one can have in this respect is,
    these weight loss diet pills remove the toxic and
    the harmful substances perfectly from the body.
