We were up in Salt Lake City doing some errands and we got past the point of hungry. Like pretty much hangry. So we went to the nearest location for food which turned out to be one of SLC’s must-try’s. We ate it in the car because we are just classy like that.
My brothers took me to the batting cages all of the time as a little girl and so it is one of my favorite places and I could hit for hours. Gotta love a little late night session.
Followed by a weekend treat.
About running shorts—> You have to admit a new pair of running shorts makes it really easy to get out and work out. The Women’s PureProject 3.5-inch Short is a keeper. I love how unique these shorts are… between the pattern and the split hem in the front, these are different than anything I own. The fabric is super lightweight, just the right amount of stretch and super soft.
They are shorts you can wear for working out and/or to go run errands etc. They have the built in underwear and the thick waistband makes them extremely comfortable.
5 pockets in one pair of shorts! There are 3 in the waistband (slit pockets which are my favorite because you can fit so much into them and not have to worry about anything falling out) and 2 snap pockets in the back! Expect to see me in them multiple times a week. They are pricey but you get what you pay for with these shorts—> expect great things out of them.
And the last two things I need to tell you about this Saturday morning!
1. How did I not know that these existed until yesterday?
2. I am SUPER excited about THIS! (I am from Orem:) Such a neat story and I am so excited for Toni!
THREE things that you are up to today!?!?!
Michele @ paleorunningmomma
I agree new shorts or a tank or headband put some hop in my step on a run :) Today I ran 9 miles and felt awesome after mile 3. Just long enough for me today. The kids and I are meeting up in central park with a good friend later and number 3 I can’t think of but I’m sure it will involve cooking something delicious. Enjoy your saturday!
New running stuff does put some spring in my step and get me out the door more easily. 3 things?? Running/lifting, some work (ugh) and mailing my son some money for food since he’s running out! Love the idea of choc dipped fritters. Genius!
I always love party pants! You can never go wrong with unemployed. I kept meaning to ask how your recovery is going!
Anyways I’m going to my favorite diner and might try to run this weekend. Have a great weekend Janae!
Kirtley Freckleton @ The Gist of Fit
I’m packing to move back to Utah today! Whoohoo!
Also going to the farmers market to get a cute, over priced tin ring.
then I am going to find 3 audio books I want to listen to on the way home.
Thanks for the shorts ideas, I’ve been looking for shorts (or a sweet bra) with pockets.
Let me throw out a recommendation for Couer Sports bras with pockets! http://www.coeursports.com/products/fleet-foxes-sports-bra
I love their tri shorts!
Leigha @ The Yooper Girl
I LOVE those shorts! I have so many shorts that don’t even have pockets… why?! This weekend I am finally moving out of my grandparents house and into my hew house! So excited! Right now I’m going to run with my mom for her first mile ever. She is training for a 5k!
Ana @ Butterflies of the Imagination
I just got new shorts recently, too! I also got new shoes for the start of the XC season. Well, I don’t have a run today, but tomorrow I have a long, hilly 5-7 mile trail run.
Megan @ The Skinny-Life
I absolutely love Brooks shorts. The material is super soft. I need to heck these out! Today I’m off to strength train followed by spin class. Fingers crossed my calf will be ok since I rested it for many weeks. Later I’m juicing it up with my new juicer.
I totally know what you mean about getting new running shorts and it making it easier to workout! It’s such a motivator to get new workout clothes!
Chocolate covered apple fritter???? What?!?
Three things today: going to the farmers market, going to the zoo, having pasta for dinner!!
Sally @ sweat out the small stuff
My local park is having a “dog wash” fundraiser. So Duncan and I are going to go donate our $7 but he won’t get the dog wash because he has an appointment with the groomer today and they will do all that. Doodles are high maintenance. Lol.
I’ll probably spend quite a while with my foam roller
And a bike ride later. :)
I love running shirts but they don’t love me. They always creep. So I mostly do the Capri or a long bike short and skirt combo.
Today is my only day off of the week, so my three to-dos will be very exciting:
1. Eat leftover pizza
2. Cuddle with my dog
:) Happy Saturday!
I love those shorts!!!!!
Today, I am working, then taking my kids out to eat, and then maybe watching an early evening movie as I work tomorrow too!
Kristina @ Blog About Running
I just ordered a bunch of stuff from the Brooks site yesterday. I can’t wait for it to all come!!! I didn’t order those shorts, but I just checked them out and they look super comfy. I will be adding them to my list for my next order :)
fort lauderdale limousine service
I was suggested this blog by my cousin. I’m not sure whether this post is written by
him as nobody else know such detailed about my difficulty.
You’re amazing! Thanks!
Where can you find brooks’ apparel in stores? I would love to try on a few different ones to get my size right. I love their shorts and have two different kinds and wear two different sizes.
Today I rode my bike to work, and after work hopefully playing some soccer at the park with the kids. It’s a cross training day :)
Oh yum, I haven’t been to Crown Burger in ages! That made me think of something super important…one of the best salads in Utah is the grilled chicken salad at Apollo Burger on N. temple & Redwood. It may be my favorite salad ever! But the weird part is that the other locations make it slightly different and not as good so it has to be that one. Just thought I’d throw that out there!
meredith @ The Cookie ChRUNicles
I am all about the right amount of pockets in my running pants/skirts….I need to be able to access my jelly beans, have a place for my key, license and sometimes, a tampon. It’s amazing how I can fit all that stuff and not notice it! Three things today – just ran 12 miles, heading to beach and a special dinner tonight for someone’s birthday.
Today is my “rest day”, so we are going on a family walk (3.5 miles), followed by our usual Saturday errands. Tonight is Cafe Rio, I am craving a salad, and a Harry Potter marathon. A perfect Saturday!
Enjoying the sun, painting my nails and hanging out with friends!
Nikki @ grab your kicks
Love those shorts! I’m all about patterned shorts that make working out just a little more fun!
Love those running shorts!!
Three things I’m up to today: 1) take a walk (already done!) 2) work at David’s Tea! and 3) watch part of the Harry Potter movie marathon on ABC Family when I get home!! :)
Rachel @ Blonde with a Chanse
I love getting new workout gear! It totally makes me want to get out there and exercise when I have new stuff :) Today I’m selling at the Farmer’s Market, going to the rodeo with my little family, and getting a visit from my grandparents. Busy day ha! I hope yours is great!
Alyssa @ See This Girl Run
Work out, float the Provo river and go to dinner for a friend’s birthday :)
Love the shorts! And those chocolate dipped apple fritters look heavenly.
1) Packing for a short trip to NYC to explore the city and see Late Night with Seth Meyers on Monday.
2) Getting an 8 miler in (hopefully)!
3) Having dinner with my family :)
Hope you have a great weekend, Janae!
Brianna @ I run He tris
I love those shorts!! New running clothes always get my out the door to workout. Three things: cleaning the house, lunch time grill out/party, night time engagement party! Have a good weekend!
new shorts are super exciting. I’ve been running in the two pairs since I came to China. Lamesauce.
Fiona @ Get Fit Fiona
I love when shorts have pockets. They’re hard to find.
Today I’m babysitting for 3 kids – all under 5. I hope I survive!
I’m having my first night away from my kiddos with the girls… Shopping, sunning and LOTS of cocktails!
Ps those shorts are FABULOUS
Workout! I think it’s a bis/tris day followed by a run
Big BBQ with the family for dinner ;).
Hope your having a great weekend!
1) I ran the 5K on the Runway at our local airport in 25:18.
2) I’m going to a local event called the Franklin Street Bazaar that is like a combination farmers market/flea market.
3) I’m going to a friend’s party celebrating her recent wedding and her and her husband’s recent birthdays.
The Hungry Runner Girl
What a cool 5k!!!! Way to go and enjoy the party!
Sorry to say but you obviously have not been running in these. There is a seam in the inner thigh and it CHAFES and HURTS like heck. The pockets etc are cute but you can’t run longer than a mile of 5 in them.
The Hungry Runner Girl
They fixed that problem! I had that same issue in the first version (and so did a lot of people)!
I feel like maybe I missed out on the fix? I just got the shorts last week (but they are white) and wore them for 10 miles today and had the same problem with the seam on the inner thigh. So sad because they are adorable and I love the white because most shorts are black. They have a phone number for replacing/exchanging worn items so maybe I’ll give that a try.
I didn ‘t want to be a downer but any athletic shorts with metal buttons/zippers on the rear make no sense to me. When I am sitting/ stretching or doing situps after a run , the snaps dig into me. Same problem with lululemon with zipper back pocket (altho i still love their items!). I totally apprecuate pockets but not the metal parts. Maybe you could deliver some feedback, Janae:)
The Hungry Runner Girl
I can totally see that happening but honestly I haven’t even noticed the metal buttons on these! They are so small and flat that I haven’t felt them but next workout I will pay closer attention to them! Thank you!
Thanks! I have not tried these particular shorts. It was just the sight of the buttons that would make me hesitant to try them based on experience with other shorts. But yes, please report back because I usually love Brooks items!
Ran seven miles this morning with my running partner. Then I fed my mother breakfast in the nursing home, and now I am on my way to the beach with my sister.
Life is good!
New workout clothes are amazing. I get so excited walking into the athletic section at Target or walking into an outdoor store and staring at chacos and backpacks and running shoes!!
3 things…………putting my name on a coca cola can (very cool, it prints your name on the can!…made one for me and the fiance)…………playing with baby penguins…….and shopping for bridesmaid dresses with my sisters!!
Have a great weekend!
Livi @ Eat, Pray, Work it Out
Chocolate apple fritters….yessss
Kathryn @ Chicks Dig Running
YES to new running shorts! Why are new running clothes so much more exciting than regular clothes?
Today I am: doing yoga, going to a food truck festival, and taking my dog to the dog park. At least those are the top 3 things I’m looking forward to :)
That apple fritter looks amazing. I may now have to go out on a search for chocolate covered apple fritters. :)
Three things I’m up to today: 1) Washing the dog. 2) Cleaning! 3) Having a family dinner tonight. :) Also, it’s such a nice day today, I may just have to go out for a swim!
Kari @ Kari On
Those shorts are really cute!

I love a good pair of running shorts!
Today I am: being lazy, watching a Harry Potter marathon, and working on blog posts for the week.
Happy Saturday! :)
Amy @ Life to the Full
1. Those shorts are so cute and look very comfortable!
2. I just “jogging stroller” PR’d in a 5k this morning – 22:04. Now toddler is napping, I probably should, too :)
3. I’m going to a parade this afternoon with a girlfriend!
Marissa @ Run Riss Run
1. Trail run in Flagstaff. I found a trail a 1/2 mile from our hotel.
2. Visiting Grandma
3. Driving to Vegas tonight.
OK, only one question-where are the doughnuts from? I live in Orem too and haven’t seen these anywhere. I’m still dying to hunt down the Art City Doughnuts truck.
Becky @ Ok, so here's the plan
New running stuff is so motivational! It always makes me a little more excited to work out.
Three things: I ran 6.5 miles on a group run this morning and I don’t think I have ever sweat so much, I’m reading Anatomy for Runners right now and I’m really excited to get to the part where you get to assess your form (nerd), and I’m looking forward to dinner because I’m having steak and salad – yum.
Kristen @ Vitamin K Girl
I’ve never seen shorts like those–super cute! I’ve also never tried out Brooks running shorts before so maybe now would be a good time. Happy Weekend!
Biking…..cold coffee World Cup …..and pool time
Julie @ RDelicious Kitchen
Love the pattern on those shorts!
you do the most fun things…
Ok..I think I am caught up with you..moving on ;)
The shorts look great – you can never have too many pockets – but I hate chaffing so hopefully Brooks have sorted that out. 3 things 1)12 km 2) cleaning (yawn) 3)high tea with a good friend. Hope your weekend is ok – you’re a trooper!
Kimberly @ Healthy Strides
I love those shorts thought I find, for my legs, 3.5 inch inseams to be just a smidge short. Dang chub rub! I will have to look to see whether Brooks will offer the pattern in a longer inseam as I like their bottoms.
Lisa @ Running Out Of Wine
I really want those shorts– the more pockets the better!
I don’t wear running shorts (I like capris) But any new running gear just makes me want to get out and use them.
I love those shorts, they look so fun!
Those shorts look really comfy! I didn’t know that donut existed either. I must track one down!!

Wonderful blog! I found it while browsing on Yahoo News.
Do you have any suggestions on how to get listed in Yahoo News?
I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there!
