YOU GUYS. I am so excited, I was quoted in Runner’s World!
Check it out HERE… I’m #8. Honestly, the best running advice I’ve ever received (no matter the distance). And with that — on to this week’s edition of let’s get real.
Rest days are the best days
I am in that point of marathon training where I love rest days because they mean that I get to sleep in and well, I don’t have to run. Today is a rest day and it feels so good.
Let’s get real: I love to run and I absolutely love marathon training, but it’s hard work and it can be so draining… not only on your body, but on other aspects of life too! Sometimes it’s just nice to get a little bit of a break (all while knowing that this break probably helps you be a little bit of a faster runner in the process, or at least that’s what I tell myself).
I am so very sad for Shalane
In case you missed it, Shalane Flanagan announced earlier this week that she pulled out of the Boston Marathon because she has a broken back. Literally, her back is broken. This makes me so very sad for her because she wants to win (or place top 3) in the Boston Marathon SO bad and I know she can do it.
Let’s get real: Injuries suck. No matter what level you compete at, they are terrible when they sideline you from the thing that you love most. I am hoping she has a quick recovery and can get back to racing soon.
Why is it so hard to find a good eyeliner?
Sorry dudes, time to get a little girly. I feel like I have been searching for a good eyeliner for ages and just can’t find one that works. I am a waterline girl, which makes it a little tougher. Most recently I tried the Urban Decay 24/7 Waterline and while it seemed to work pretty well, I didn’t like that I’ve basically had it less than a month and I’m already out!
Next up? I’m trying the Anastasia Beverly Hills Darkside eyeliner to see how that goes. Wish me luck… or let me know what you use so I can find something that I like!
Let’s get real: I feel like such a diva talking about the eyeliner I wear, but what’s a girl to do!?
OMG I hope the weather people are right!
Right now, they are predicting a monster winter storm coming our way —> I’ve heard estimates of 12″ to 20″ of snow that’s supposed to drop later today and tomorrow! I am so excited because we haven’t had enough winter up in Minneapolis yet this year. (I know a lot of people disagree with me, but shhh.)
Let’s get real: How often are weather people ACTUALLY right!? My guess is that we’ll end up with 2″ of snow and a lot of hype around it. 😉
Ladies —> what’s your favorite eyeliner? Details!
