My favorite fall dish is probably pumpkin cupcakes with cream cheese icing. Does that count as a dish exactly? Oh well, it’s delicious!

YAY!

Last night, I got to run with Newton Running…well, kinda!

I tried on the shoes they were testing out, and personally, they did not feel good on my feet. I wasn’t a fan of the Energy. Don’t get me wrong, I bet it’s a great shoe! But on my foot I just didn’t like it.

Thank you, Josh, who came out to Trak Shak in Homewood to let us take a look!

My mom and dad tried on the Gravity (neutral shoe) and they liked it so they ran 5 miles in that.

Womens Newton Running Gravity Running Shoe

I ran 5 miles in my own shoes. BOO!

I ran very well though with the heat, so pretty proud of myself.

I was running 8:45 pace after the 1 mile and felt awesome and right before the 2.5 mile water stop, I was just so HOT, so slowed down a bit! Alabama heat <<<<

Tried to keep a 9 min pace but I kept slowing down, getting faster, slowing down…so it was just messy. But I only stopped once (the water stop)! Building up that endurance for half marathon, baby!

When I got back from my run though, I did try on the Newton Motion, which I really liked! Wish they would have had a pair for me to test out. I’ve been wanting to try Newton Running shoes for a while and the Motion has been in the back of my mind.

I need this shoe for my upcoming Fall races. I would love to be able to share my experience with the shoe with you all.

You bet I stopped at O’Henry’s to get an iced coffee! With almond milk! Thank you for having Almond Milk.

If you live in Birmingham, O’Henry’s will have their Pumpkin Spice Lattes out September 18, next Tuesday! They tweeted @ me! Hehe

By the way, I’m not taking a picture of the car…but of the people at Trak Shak in the distance. Smile If you squint really hard, you can see them. Most of them were sitting.

Oh, and had another Beet & Feta sandwich when I got home…

YUM!

Have a great Thursday!

Questions:

  • Do you run in Newton’s? If not, what shoe do you run in?
  • Favorite drink at a local Coffee shop? (I love O’Henry’s Chai Tea Latte!)

Sweaty Bands Review

I reached out to Sweaty Bands last week about their products and they were so kind to give not just one, but TWO Sweaty Bands!

I got the bands on Saturday before my long run so I knew I had to test it out on my 10 miler.

Guess what?

I forgot that it was on my head! I am absolutely in love with their headbands now. It didn’t slip, slide, move, give me a headache, make my head itch, nothing!

It did in fact…keep sweat out of my eyes and my hair out of my face just like it was supposed to! (Please excuse my frizzy post run hair)

And it matched my outfit! I don’t know how they knew, but they matched to my outfit that I had planned out for my long run. Like, what???

Here’s me narrowing it down for ya:

  • “OMG…they don’t slip!”
  • “No sweat in my eyes!”
  • “They’re super cute”

 

So now…I would like to let you experience this and GIVE YOU a Sweaty Band!
