8 miles @ 8:31 pace with Emilee yesterday and shooting for some speed today. LOVE this new Run Happy shirt that Brooks sent me!
I got home from my run and when Beck woke up he was acting so off and screaming nonstop so I took him to the doctor. He had an ear infection and luckily the doctor was able to get him some medicine asap.
And the only other things I accomplished besides holding him all day (and a shower at 10 pm)…
A walk with my sister because being outside always helps him out (and puts him to sleep) and…
A drive-thru cookie run. If you live by a Sodalicious, try their new Crumb Cake cookie asap.
WHAT?! The runner’s high is real… it doesn’t happen every run but it definitely happens for me!
Let’s chat about some of my favorite things!
*Aftershokz. So, how did I live without these for so long? I am 100% sold on them. The sound is amazing on these and I am in love with the fact that I can hear everything else going on around me when I am using them because nothing is actually going into your ear (the sound is conducted through your cheekbone). They are so easy to use and charge and beyond comfortable. It’s one of those things I wish I would have jumped on board with years ago. If I ever do race with music again in the future though, I will probably stick to AirPods just because they are easier to throw in your pocket to store until you need music but for every other run (or podcast I listen to while doing laundry ha), Aftershokz is my #1 now.
PS I am very happy to report that you can still wear sunglasses with these on!
*I have a new summer water bottle that I’ll be using daily. I wanted one a bit bigger so I went with this one from Nathan! The pouch is big enough for your phone too. It doesn’t leak, it’s easy to hold, it’s double-wall insulated and carries 18 oz of liquid.
*Added a new flavor to my LIQUID I.V. daily obsession. The tangerine Hydration Multiplier (one glass = drinking 3 water bottles) + Immune Support. It tastes amazing and it’s full of goodness to strengthen the immune system. My day would feel very weird if I didn’t start it with one of these. Super random tangent but I saw that the BYU cross country coach put together a piñata for the team and she included LIQUID IV, B12 & Run Gum inside of it:)

*I am kind of embarrassed I went this long without it in my life but I remembered my FAVORITE nut butter on the planet and bought more. This almond butter is the best of the best and I could put it on anything and eat it.
How do you carry water while you run? Or do you hide it somewhere or plan your runs around drinking fountains?
What % of the time do you experience a runner’s high?
Almond butter vs peanut butter (or other nut butter)!? What’s your favorite?

*The above cake crumble one and it was a 10.
