Ten mile run this morning in the pouring rain! It usually is just a drizzly Pacific Northwest rain here, but it was coming down good this morning. I ran 2.25 miles to my friend Kelly’s house, and then we ran 5.5 miles together before I ran the 2.25 miles back to my house. I usually run on my own, but I do like having company at least once or twice a week!
I’m highlighting some of my favorite things in this post that I am especially excited about these days. I’ve got everything from a new cozy fall sweater to running podcasts, and a delicious protein bar that I finally find locally!
C Tolle Run
I’ve mentioned the C Tolle Run podcasts before, but I just had to mention them again because I think they are so fun and Carrie (the host) is a natural at interviewing people! I recently listened to the Alysia Montano episode, which was nothing short of spectacular. She and Carrie talked about Alysia running pregnant, why she won’t be getting a couple of the medals she probably truly deserves, and empowering women in the sport of running. I also listened to the Amy Cragg podcast yesterday, which was a good one too!
I just ordered this Free People sweater as the weather has changed to fall already. While I am not excited about fall because of how early it comes here–and I know what comes after that, I am super excited about the sweater! I am definitely lacking some good sweater/long sleeve options for winter, and I couldn’t resist when I saw it for 40% off and just under $60. I had been eyeing it earlier and grabbed it right away when it went on sale!
I’ve had a few RX Bars in the past from Trader Joe’s when traveling back to Minnesota, but I was stoked to find them at Target here in Anchorage. I bought the Sea Salt Chocolate flavor and love it! Twelve grams of protein and all whole foods–love!
Open-back Lattice Sweatshirt
I purchased this sweatshirt a couple weeks ago and have already worn it more times than I care to admit. It is so easy and comfortable with jeans or athletic wear. Right now it is on sale for $25, so grab one (or two) because you won’t want to take them off. There are several other colors too, and I was really close to buying the black.
Beautycounter Radiance Serum
This Rejuvenating Radiance Serum is pretty magical. I have been using it since July, and I don’t think I’ve ever had such smooth skin or such an even skin tone. I use in every morning and night before moisturizing, and it is lightweight and absorbs so well into my skin. I highly recommend it! Others agree as it has a 5-star rating!
Beautycounter is just rolling out the promos lately–one right after another. This weekend–now through Monday, September 4th, with a $150 purchase, you will get a free Facial Oil ($68 value). The facial oils are amazing and what got me hooked on Beautycounter products in the first place. After trying far too many other high-end products for my dry skin, the facial oil was the only thing that helped my parched skin this past winter. I continue to use it every night and love how moisturized my skin is when I wake up in the morning!
If you are on the market for some new Oiselle clothes, I’d highly recommend checking out their sale this weekend because they are offering an extra 40% off their sale items. I really like these shorts, this tank, love this bra.
I am working this weekend at the store, and then Monday is Labor Day, which means we get to spend an entire day together as a family. I’m stoked! I don’t know what we will do, but I don’t have a run that day either, which makes it even a little more sweet!
