A Marvelous Weekend #mimm

Hey friends! Hope the weekend was a marvelous one for you! Mine was pretty great (and hot) but pretty awesome!

I’m so thankful for my family, first off! The fact that we’re so close, makes everything better! One of the most enjoyable things is laughing with them. Laughing and making jokes helps me remember to be joyful in the situation I’m in right now.

Saw this on pinterest this morning…

Audrey Hepburn seriously has some of my favorite quotes, but this one, so true!

Post-long run dinner! Sauteed beets, beans, rotisserie chicken, and squash from our garden. Half way through cooking the squash, we decided we didn’t want just sauteed squash, but fried squash. It happens!

I would either go with the same ones I have now, the Brooks Adrenaline GTS 14, which has been a fantastic long distance shoe for me…I’ve worn mine out, so I would love a new pair.

If you are a runner in need of a support/stability shoe because of over pronation, this might be your shoe! But if you have any stability running shoe suggestions, comment and let me know! Always searching…

 

HEAD BANDS

I’m a Head Band Gal…I got to have something on my head while I run and workout. But hats just get too hot! I love my Sweat Band that I received last year (here’s my review)
