It’s beginning to look a lot like St. Patty’s….wait…no it’s not…with all the snow on the ground it still looks like Christmas, who am I kidding? But it IS almost St. Patty’s Day and since I have not a single drop (that I know of) of Irish blood in me, I’m celebrating with some of my favorite green things anyway:
Lock Laces: Where have these been all my life? Despite double tying, I am SO anal about my laces coming untied mid-race. Although I’ve been lucky so far in that respect, just the other day my laces came untied during a slushy training run. Mucho no bueno. Lock Laces are stretchy, water-resistant and come in a whole mess of dynamite colors. I went with apple green for obvious reasons. Just slide the patented fastener, clip the lock and you’ll never worry about tying/untying again. Normally $7.99/pair here’s a deal too good to pass up! 3 pairs for $10!
Green Recovery Shake: If you follow me on Instagram you know I’ve been spending quality time in the kitchen with Designer Whey. Stay tuned for a full review, but this recovery shake was so good, I couldn’t wait to share it:
- 6-8 oz coconut milk or whatever you like
- 1/2C fresh pineapple chunks
- 1 big handful spinach
- 1 scoop Designer Whey French Vanilla Protein Powder
- Splash of orange juice (optional)
- couple of ice cubes, or of you’re really sly, freeze coconut milk in an ice cube tray
Just whip that up in a blender and enjoy! So simple and so good in a tropical, am-I-in-the-islands? way!
BAMR Band in Green Chevron: Yes it’s super cute and will be a hit at your St Patty’s Day races. Yes it’s made of durable, 7/8″ thick grosgrain ribbon and lined with velvet so it won’t budge while you workout or run like the wind. But the real beauty of a BAMR (bada$$ mother runner) band is that $1 from the sale of each one goes to Every Mother Counts. Now that’s a beautiful thing!
We are road trippin’ downstate to a wedding this weekend. I feel like I haven’t been to a wedding in years as our family/friends are all married and the next generation is on the young side for that sort of thing.
Have you gone to a wedding recently? Who’s racing? I know lots of you are!
