It’s been a while since the last “Now Trending” so these are probably things that were trending last month, or potentially even in 2013, knowing me.
Do you ever wonder if people are genetically pre-determined to be long distance runners? Hayley Birch, a British runner, explores this thought while finding running as a form of therapy.
I’ve only ran in two of the 25 most beautiful places to run (but at least one more coming soon!). How many have you ran in?
I’m constantly girl-crushing on amazing girl runners (I need motivation for that sub 1:50-half, right?). Tina Muir wrote a really honest, raw post about what it’s like to not have the race you want, even at an elite level.
Has anyone seen this amazing campaign Nike is doing right now? These photos running in front of the most beautiful places on earth are insanely inspiring to me.
There have been food trends basically as long as people have been alive, or well, as long as food has been readily available (let them eat cake, anyone?). The ManRepeller team investigates the newest in food trends – health food. I clearly eat basically all of them except frozen yogurt on a weekly – if not daily – basis. Side note – last year in America over 250 babies were named Kale.
These added-sugar free granola bars from Oh She Glows look so tasty! She really makes me contemplate eating vegan part time, at least just for the challenge of it (but I love/need animal protein).
I feel like my life is constantly just vaguely craving carrot cake. Davida made a wonderful gluten free carrot cake for her boyfriend’s birthday – but really most of all, what I love about this post is her love for him. (I’m so obsessed with my friends who are in love – also looking at you, Em.)
This on-again-off-again couple ventured to Iceland with no set plans. Their photo diary of their trip across Iceland is really haunting – and of course, giving me a serious case of wanderlust.
It kind of annoys me to see fashion bloggers and models who are my size or smaller Instagramming ice cream cones every day when they clearly can’t be eating ice cream every day and stay a size 0 or 2. Finally someone made an Instagram account, @youdidnoteatthat, to call them out.
I’m kind of obsessed with ghost towns and abandoned structures. (Isn’t that weird? Maybe that’s Italy’s one redeeming quality for me.) This note map on Findery features a bunch of cool ghost towns across the US.
I never really wear flats (especially ballet flats #sorryimnotsorry) unless I’m doing a ton of walking and/or are in Pittsburgh and hating life and not caring how I look, but I can appreciate a good cats and flats look book from Vogue.
If you want a good weekend cry/inspirational store/dose of adorableness, watch Frosty the Snow Goat. Whenever you need a reminder that there are really good, selfless people in the world, watch this.
