April Coffee Date
It’s high time we took a moment to exhale and catch up properly. Nothing run related – just life.
What I am Reading These Days
How Bad Do You Want It by Matt Fitzgerald has been on my To-Read list for a long time. I used a gift card I received for Christmas and snapped it up. He uses stories from professional athletes to share the science of sports psychology and I am finding it to be an amazing read. I’m looking forward to using some of the ideas he shares in my upcoming races.
Current Worst Habit
Killing plants. I don’t know what my issue is, but within days of owning a plant, they wither and die under my care. I either over water or forget they exist. I have even managed to kill my succulents which is not supposed to be possible.
Hall of Fame by The Script. I absolutely love this song and use it for sprints on the bike and whenever I need a pump up song.
Current favourite blog
Kelly from Run Selfie Repeat. Remember that story that went viral about a runner during a half marathon that took sly photos of hot guys throughout the run? That is Kelly and aside from having an incredible story, she brings her humour and zest for life to her blogging. Lots of inspirational posts and hilarious videos – this is a fantastic blog.
Work. I have my team in place and we are firing on all cylinders. It feels good to start having brainstorming meetings for amazing and creative public relations projects we can do rather than feel like I am in reactionary mode.
Every morning after my workout, I shake up a scoop of Extra Energy Greens + in orange and drink it while I make breakfast. It tastes just like orange juice without the sugar and it gives me an awesome kick of energy for the day.
Peanut Butter. To say I am addicted is a gross understatement.
I was recently having dinner at my parents house and when I looked out into our yard, there was a wild turkey walking across the lawn. When I asked my father for clarification, he just mentioned that there was a raft of wild turkey’s living in the forest beside their house. Okkkkk.
Podcasts. When I go on walks or drive to work, I am always listening to podcasts. Some of my favourites right now are Endurance Planet, the Rich Roll podcast, UltraRunner Podcast and the Tim Ferriss Show. I love learning about interesting people doing exceptional things.
For all of you…
