good morning! it is a glorious and lovely morning here – where was that weather yesterday?!? ugh.
i’m just going to hop right into my seven things for this sunday!
1. obviously, i survived my race yesterday! it was mostly good, a little rough, and got off to a terrible start.
i’m going to do a full post on my recap a little later this week, though. so you’ll just have to wait with this teaser photo from our starting corral… the rain didin’t hold off.
2. frozen grapes are my new favorite treat.
i’ve seen laura snack on them a couple times now and i had to try it! i’m hooked.
3. my dog puts me to shame.
i took jake & capone on a 5-mile run with me this week (just to make sure i could do it).
after we got home, capone went into the bathroom to collapse and pant on the cool tile floor, but jake was following me around, so i took him outside with me while i stretched.
he wasn’t tired at all! he was playing with this ball and pouncing around. i wish i had that kind of energy!
4. foam rolling has become my best friend in the whole world.
my calves have been really feeling the “long” (to me) distances that i’ve been running and are screaming at me. thank goodness for compression sleeves and my foam roller.
5. it’s been a long time since i’ve had an iced latte. oh my goodness, i forgot how delicious they are!
this one was extra motivation to use my second mug of coffee today to try making my own with the sugar-free hazelnut syrup i bought last weekend!
6. i tried a new-to-me snack last night.
i picked up these somersaults when i went to world market with my mom and finally tried them!
i really had no idea what to expect. i’ve seen other bloggers try these a couple times before, so i was hoping they were good. i’m not sure about the other flavors, but this one was a winner! i really liked it and would definitely buy them again! i liked the sunflower seeds inside the little nuggets.
7. i have this quote up on my board at work.
just needed to read it this morning & thought you guys might like it too!
bonus. today is the last day to enter my oxo locktop container giveaway!
keep those entries coming.
i’m trying something new today – i’ll be back a little bit later with another fun post that i’ve been wanting to do for a couple weeks now!
