Five Random Things Friday

Happy Friday!  As usual, I'm linking up with the HeatherKatie, and Clare for Five Things Friday! Check out their great blogs for the fun linkups!!  As always, thank you ladies for hosting! 

Random 5 today:
#1-Last Friday, I was featured on Dawn's Friday Five post on her blog-My Pink Musings.  Each week she features a runner from across the country and has each person answer the below questions.  You can check out my responses to her five questions here.

1. Why do I run?
2. What piece of gear would you not want to be without?
3. Favorite running shoes?
4. Music or no music?
5. Advice for new runners?

What would you answer to the Friday Five?  Pick one, two, or all and let me know in the comments!!

#2-Check out these awesome new Pinterest boards from Girls Gone Sporty.  There is one for fitness and one for food.  Girls Gone Sporty Ambassadors get to share their recipes and sure to follow so you can check them out too!!

#3-Fitnessista published her ebook on blogging this week!!  I downloaded my copy yesterday.  I can't wait to dive in and really get into it.  I have skimmed through and there is so much great information.

From Gina herself:

This eBook is for:
• Those who have been blogging consistently for a while, but find themselves at a crossroads for the “next step” with their blog.
• Those who want to figure out how to share their unique voice, story and knowledge (in any field!) to help others.
• Those who are interested in monetizing their blog, networking, and creating partnerships.
This eBook is NOT for:
• Those who don’t have a blog and have no interest in starting one.
• Those who enjoy blogging occasionally for fun, and want to keep the professional aspect out of blogging (which is totally cool).

If you want to get your copy of “Build Up Your Blog,” it’s only $9 right now, and it can be found here!

#4-I know I mentioned this earlier in the week, but I am really excited about my Girls on the Run team.  We had our second practice on Thursday and it was just as fun!!  I'm still working to learn all of their names, but their enthusiasm and spirit is totally inspiring!!

#5-speaking of girls on the run, I've been enjoying our beautiful start to fall weather by running. 60-70 degrees is ideal for me to run in shorts and a tank. I'm loving it!!

Any favorites this week??


  1. I would love to hear what you think of Gina's eBook after you are done reading it - make sure to blog about it! :) Happy Friday.

    1. I will definitely report back! I want to dig in and read it this weekend. :)

  2. The weather is the best right now! I'm enjoying the outdoors as much as I can before the winter rolls in. Love Gina's eBook! Thanks so much for linking up. Happy Friday! xo

  3. Oh I need music when i run/ work out! I know, I know, it can throw off your natural rhythm, but i can't help it. Gotta have some tunes :) Happy Friday!

    1. I agree. I love to use music as a distraction while I run. :) Happy Friday!

  4. Great links and information! Glad you are enjoying GOTR...I always wanted to help out with that great organization (never did). I'd also like to hear what you think of the eBook when you're done. Have a great weekend!
