I have effectively dodged the end of Summer Fridays (aka Half-Day Fridays) by running Ragnar today! If you haven’t, you can head to that post and enter my Nuun giveaway and stay hydrated like the stars (aka me).
Note: I had a KIND bar as a snack that had way too much sugar so I am writing this in a completely goofy mood. Check out the best links I’ve found this week while I’m busy running/not sleeping/running some more.
I’m pretty sure the worst feeling in life is disappointment. I hate being disappointed and I hate disappointing people. It’s inevitable to live a life in which everything goes exactly as planned. Camille Styles had a great post on “How to Deal with Disappointment” this week.
It’s about time to maybeeee think about leaving the nest again. I’m going to be using these bohemian kitchens as inspiration.
This whole week I’ve been thinking about how weird relationships are, not just with a significant other, but even with friends and family. There are literally no relationships in which there isn’t a little work: some days my Dad drives me up the wall, I’m sure my friends want to strangle me on a daily, if not hourly, basis and I’m definitely not the easiest girl in the world to date (even though I try to be easy on J!). Absurd She Wrote had a wonderful post on “Relationship Like You Mean It“.
I’m publicly down with camping – but I am all for GLAMPING.
I’m currently reading What I Was Doing While You Were Breeding: A Memoir by Kristin Newman, a TV writer. More or less she’s going on all kinds of crazy adventures around the world and it’s giving me a serious sense of wanderlust. Thanks to my friend Catherine for the recommendation!
You gotta spend money to make money. Davida is spot-on with her list of Five Investments Worth Making for Your Blog.
As I mentioned the other day, marathon training is starting to get to me. I like this list of 26.2 side effects of marathon training from Hungry Runner Girl.
I was 20 kinds of inspired by Oiselle’s 2014 New York Fashion Week show.
Kind of obsessed with the ideal of the six most prestigious marathons, even though yesterday I said this may be my first – and last – full.
I’m totally into how geography plays a role in eating patterns. This infographic of the most popular food by every state (well, what appears most on the menu) is great. Apparently the whole West Coast is just an anaphylactic danger zone for me (re: shrimp allergy).
Don’t be fooled the sugar-free label. Lindsay from The Lean Green Bean has a very important message about added and hidden sugar in foods!
How beautiful is this beet crust breakfast pizza from Running Sri Lankan?
Chat with me:
How do you deal with disappointment, both from yourself and others? What is the key to keeping balance in your relationships with others? On a less heavy note, what are you up to this weekend?
