New socks


I'm pretty picky about my running socks and don't really like messing with what I know works, but the team at Powersox sent me a pair to try out, and I have to say, these socks are making me bench my usual pairs. They've got that thinner band around the center of my foot with a little more cushioning in the heel and the toe and they're the perfect height on my ankles.

My BostonStrong Bic Band

Love my Boston strong bic band. It didn't slip once on my run! #fitfluential

In all the Boston aftermath, this was the only fundraising item I purchased. I'd heard good things about Bic Bands from other runners, but had never tried one myself, plus I loved that all the money was going to the One Fund. Ever since the band got here, I've been using it nonstop. It doesn't slip and slide on my head at all, and I have really, really thick hair that sometimes makes it hard to keep head bands in place. This is a definite winner.

Box Jumps

Tackling my fear of box jumps #fitfluential #whatsbeautiful #latergram

Now that I've finally got the hang of them, I think box jumps are a ton of fun. They used to scare the crap out of me because I didn't want to bite it on the box, but not so much anymore. Now they're just a good buttkicking.

Getting Faster

Three minute PR? On no training? Helllll yea!!! #fitfluential @runnikewomen

CrossFit and a few rounds of treadmill intervals are definitely starting to pay off in the speed department. I can definitely tell that holding faster mile splits is getting easier and easier.

Warm Weather Maybe Finally Showing Up

Finding my name on the ODK fountain!

This one hardly needs an explanation. Bring on the summer sunshine!
