My friend Rachel got me addicted to running skirts. Literally, addicted. Like, I have probably bought one skirt a week for the past 2 months. Ya. But hey, you can’t have too many workout clothes, right?! I didn’t think so either. Here are 2 of my faves right now. The orange one is by Avia and the turquoise is from 90 degrees by Reflex.
90 degrees also has AWESOME capris – which are a major score at TJ Maxx for $16.99 b/c they are regularly around $98! Don’t mind the wet shirt in the bottom pic – we had just gotten home from the farmers market and it was raining pretty good. But we felt like true Portlanders b/c we didn’t carry umbrellas! (Portland, OR is our dream location to live someday….)
Speaking of the farmers market, we went there specifically for the bison farm stand. We found them last year and they are from right outside of Columbus, but it’s like 45 minutes away, so we never did go there in the off season to get more bison. However, we went to where they were located last year, and they weren’t there!! So we walked back up the one side of the street (and by this time, my boyzzz was telling me he was sick of walking in the rain and to make haste as we walk…). Got him to go to the other side of the street since we had to walk back the other way anyway, and low and behold, it was the very last booth/tent we came to – and we literally almost passed it! He was already past it and I happened to look up and see “BISON” and I was like, “PHIL! THEY’RE HERE! IT’S HERE! I FOUND IT!” I think the 2 girls in the tent might have thought I was crazy, but mission accomplished.
We also got some cucumbers, tomatoes, blackberries, honey (summer and fall honey – which I did not know that different seasoned honey’s existed until today), and some french toast bread. Which of course, we had to try the toast w/ honey as soon as we got home! YUM!
Something else that makes me a happy runner – NEW RUNNING SHOES!! I used to think I was a Nike girl b/c my name was Nikki. Nikki – Nike – Nikki – Nike. Ya, don’t judge. But after trying some Adidas shoes last year, I think my feet and knees started loving running again. The saucony’s are pretty comfy too – for shorter runs.
And one last thing that makes me a happy runner – the Color Run with my mom, sister, and nephew! I was worried at first b/c 2 minutes into the run, my nephew was saying he was done and wanted to go home. I’m like great. I dragged him into this and I will never live this down. It took a while to get to the first color zone, but once we did, it was ON! He started running and I just ran behind him following him all over the place. We had a blast – thunder storm and all! Hey, what other times are you able to get dirty and jump in puddles splashing anyone and everyone?!
And in case your wondering, no, I did not run today – but I DID go to spinning all bright and early! (8:30 on a Saturday)
