Now Trending – Best Links Week of 6.13


Photo credit: 1 / 2 / 3 / 4

I would like to think I have brought good luck to the city of San Francisco. The day I moved here the Giants won the World Series and now the Warriors won the NBA Championship. I stayed out of the craziness Tuesday night because I like not being a victim of arson but there were some really great Tweets I read including:

“Not only are all those Warriors fans celebrating right in Cleveland’s face, but afterward they get to go back to the Bay Area.” — Josh Greenman (@joshgreenman) June 17, 2015


Those may have been the best tweets this week, but here are the best links I found:

This list of bucket list travel locales is insane… and so cool to discover two are only a few hours away from SF!

So I want to go to Iceland but I dry the line at puffin burgers.

Burrata ice cream basically makes me want to go to NYC right now.

Now that I’ve worked on both coasts, I can say there is a difference between working on the East Coast and the West Coast.

This is a terrible confession, but I haven’t done my own nails in over four years. I used to get so excited about what color combinations to get and now I’m just overwhelmed… these nail and toenail polish pairs from Cupcakes and Cashmere are going to take the stress out of my next mani/pedi. (I know, my life is so rough.)

I cannot wait to read Aziz Ansari’s book, Modern Romance.

Dear execs, this is not how you act after laying a bunch of your employees off. The best line is “Rose-Fuled Hunger Games Reference“. I love working in retail America.

Running and Fitness
A really interesting article on ultra-runners over-training and burning out after just a few years, but how else can you train to run 100 miles?

And on that note, a top ultra-runner who started performing better when she stopped running like crazy and started cross-training in every other way possible.

I need to get in the pool ASAP and up my surf-focused workouts for a little trip that is in the works…

Sometimes races are as much about the laser-focused training as they are about the event. This working mother talks about her Ironman training.

I unapologetically love mustard. I really want to try making my own soon along with ketchup, pickle relish and more of your summer BBQ necessities.

What does your favorite wine order say about you?

I have to make these green scallop tacos ASAP.

I’m already dreaming about these strawberry cornmeal griddle cakes post-long run on Saturday.

Chat with me:
Has anyone else’s energy been so low this week? What foods have you been lusting over lately? Would you ever want to train for a crazy endurance event? Have you ever went on a rose-fueled tirade?

I”m not so sure that my “how to avoid marathon training burnout” tips would apply to ultramarathoners… good grief.

Those people are just nuts. But I’m totally envious of what they can do.

Yes! I’ve been feeling so drained physically and mentally this week. Hoping it passes because I’m not doing anything particularly different. Maybe an extra rest day is in order.

Ultras are fascinating. I can’t even phathom how the body could go through that.

It’s the Dub Nation, Cassie! And I LOVE it. I’m actually walking in the parade in Oakland today to celebrate, because they invited employees’ families. Happy Friday! Great links! :)

Totally checking out those color combos asap! Right now I’m rocking a bright orange toe and a light teal nail, which I kind of adore. I can’t wait to read Aziz Ansari’s book too. Looks goood.

Yum for the recipes-totally saving those scallop tacos and griddle cakes. Also my bf will want to drive to NYC for burrata ice cream like tomorrow. I love all the running articles as well!

I think this is just one of those weeks! I’ve felt exhausted too! Here’s hoping that we’ll feel rested this weekend!

Wow that J.Crew exec is a douche. So out of touch.

And they don’t even have my go-to wine (moscato) on the list. Not sure what that says about me but probably not something good! haha

Iceland sounds really cool. Both literally and figuratively.
