Another week of wonderfully happy things occurred again and I’m here to share them with you!
#1. If you haven’t seen this video yet then you’re seriously missing out. Before you hit play get a tissue ready because this kid is a rockstar. Wanna be a better person? Follow his example……
#2. Girls on the Run! I signed up for this race before I even knew anything about it, except that it fell on a weekend I(and my little running buddy) had free. After I read Mar on the Run’s race recap though I did a little research on the group. I was absolutely blown away with what I found out! It’s a non-profit organization that, and I quote:
I’m even more excited because I found a chapter in Lexington! I’ve already emailed the head of the chapter and am excited to get more involved in this amazingly inspired program! Every girl should have confidence in herself and feel beautiful and I can’t wait to be a part of an organization that teaches these very things!
#3. Runner’s World Streaking Challenge. This isn’t what it sounds like, it’s about a running streak, not Actual streaking in your birthday suit lol. I saw this first on Twitter(you can learn a lot of awesome stuff from some awesome people on social media!) Basically the challenge is to run at least 1 mile every day from Memorial Day until July 4th(that’s 39 days for those who aren’t looking at a calendar). Totally doable yea? Then join on in! Luckily I read about this on Memorial Day so started right away, but don’t worry if you didn’t, start today!
#4. Look what I finally got in the mail!! This was the cover of the Boston magazine after the Marathon Bombing and it sold out so fast they made it into a poster. All proceeds from the poster sales went to One Fund Boston! You can still purchase the poster if you want one of your own, just visit the Boston Magazines website here.
#5. Finally I’ve got another fun (and hilarious) podcast for y’all! If anyone is trying to lose weight, or just enjoys humor in your fitness journey then you need to check out Awesome Starts Now (from Dorksplosion.com)! Three comedians all going through their own fitness journeys their own ways, sharing funny stories, tips/tricks, and missteps along the way. They have me literally laughing out loud on my longer runs to the point that passer-bys give me weird looks….oh well!
So there ya have it, my favorites from this past week! What made you smile this week?
