What I’m Loving More Than the Cold
Greetings from the corner of the world that thinks it’s winter.
Almost overnight, I have gone from wearing tank tops to shivering in a coat. I have moved my training indoors due to thunderstorms this week and I am itching to get back outside! Instead of dwelling on the summer that was too short, I am trying to focus on better things.
BETTER THINGS THAN THE COLD WEATHER:
5 Peaks Grand Finale Race: In one week, we are wrapping up the season, celebrating the trail community and enjoying nutella on bagels in the woods for the last time until next spring. It is held at Hardwood Hills and I would love to have you join us!
If you are new to the trail running scene, this is the perfect tester course and the perfect group of people to welcome you to the scene. Did I mention we have nutella? J If you are interested in coming, you can sign up here. And if you want to save some money, enter JESSICA for a discount!
I have been in hard core recovery mode since the marathon and I am loving compression socks from SLS3. I have been testing them out for the season and I have had some memorable races in them.
Why I love them? For starters, the height. They can be pulled up over your knees which is great support for runners who have chronic knee injuries like myself. They also have butterflies and I don’t know about you, but any piece of running clothing that allows for a bit of style is a winner in my book.
I have the Butterfly Compression sock in Hibiscus and White. These are great socks and I used them heavily for my marathon recovery as they boost blood flow by over 33%.
It is the busiest month of work for me which means my mealtimes and training have taken a hit. I am leaning heavily on these guys and I have one almost every day right now. My favourite is vanilla and it keeps me full for hours, which is a challenge with me.
New Balance Backpack:
I need to carry a brief case around for most of the day so it is fun to shed a decade (or two) and rock a back pack to practice or to events. This little guy is brand new and goes with me everywhere right now.
What are you loving more than the cold right now?
