Happy Friday! First, thanks for all of your race recommendations yesterday! I’m definitely leaning toward Detroit right now. You guys changed my mind.
1. Huma Gels. I switched from Gu to Huma gels and have been loving them! Huma gels have fewer weird ingredients than Gu and don’t upset my stomach as much as Gus do. Plus, they taste really yummy — if you try them, go for the apple! Anthony and I agree it’s the best flavor we’ve tasted so far.2. Soludos shoes. I picked up a pair of these sneakers for $25 at Nordstrom Rack the other month and have loved wearing them this spring! They’re comfy and lighter on my feet (in both color and weight) than my usual pair of Converse. I can’t find the exact pair I bought, but this is the same shoe with a different print.3. Fresh herbs. Our herbs didn’t do so hot last summer because we planted them a little later in the season and then they were attacked by ferocious grasshoppers. This year we got our garden game on: We planted early and sprayed the crap out of our plants with a natural insecticide. Now, we’re chowing down on fresh basil, mint, rosemary, and peppers! Our only failure this summer was cilantro. I guess you just can’t grow it in TN? #allthehumidity4. Method dish soap. Does anyone else hate when you reach the end of the dish soap bottle and the cap is all goopy and the last squirts of soap take forever to come out of the spout and you have to shake and shake and get soap all over your hands? Make your life a million times better by investing in the amazing Method pump soap. It’s the best $7 splurge you’ll ever make (and you can refill your pump to save money in the future).
5. Lululemon’s What the Sport Short. I’ve actually had these shorts for years (I got them in my first pv.body shipment, back when that brand existed) but didn’t really start wearing them until recently because I was hesitant to jump on the spandex train. But then I saw what Kaitlyn wears (or rather, doesn’t wear) on The Bachelorette and realized that these short shorts aren’t actually that edgy, after all. Now I wear them all the time and love them! They’re a lot lighter than my tempo shorts — i.e. they don’t get weigh 10 lbs when they’re soaked in rain (or even better, sweat).
Speaking of tempo shorts, I think I’m finally over my obsession with them. I’m looking into new shorts recommendations. Share your running short favorites — and any other random favorites — in the comments section below!
