St Patrick's dayHappy St. Patrick’s Day!!!  I love this holiday because it is just fun. Green bagels, St. Patty’s day races, extra luck and it means spring is just around the corner. Did I mention extra luck? Spring really is coming though. The buds are on the trees and spring allergies are here for a bit. This is the exciting site I saw today.

I’ll take all of the luck I can get with my leg lately. I’m hoping these new kicks do the trick. I have never run in Adidas before, but these Adidas Glide Boost were great for me today. Can you see the difference in the sole? They are not made of traditional EVA rubber, which is known to lose it’s shock absorption capacity at very high and very low temperatures (kind of like the temperatures we have been running in lately.) Instead, “The Boost midsole does not change performance in extreme temperatures, including intense heat and biting cold. While traditional EVA is affected by the weather, a Boost midsole will have the same cushion and response regardless of the temperature outdoors.” Read more about them here.

When I was trying to figure out how to keep my stress fracture from returning I came across this.

Too bad I didn’t get this memo in January! I can’t even tell you how lucky I felt to be running today.

Running pace

I’m pretty lucky overall, really. I have a great family that I love spending time with.family

So it’s a good day to celebrate! Too bad I don’t have these cool shoes to run in today.

Look at these awesome friendship bracelets the girls and I are wearing lately. They are the grown up version of the ones we used to wear. I ordered them on Etsy from P.S. I Handmade It. I love pretty much all of her stuff – check it out.
