Pampering: the runner’s edition

I’m linking up with Running on Happy and Fairytales and Fitness on this lovely Friday!

And don’t forgetmy charity auction is LIVE. You can see the rules on bidding here and check out the goods again here!

 In case you haven’t heard me shouting from the roof tops, I am on a mission to raise $2620 for Team For Kids. 100% of the proceeds from this auction will go directly to support Team For Kids and their effort to provide free or low cost health/running programs for school age children across the United States.

I also want to say thank you to all of the super spectacular people and companies who were generous enough to make item donations and support my effort for Team For Kids! This auction includes almost $1000 worth of awesome swag!

So how does this work? First, read the rules post here.
– Second, find something you like and place your bid!
– Email me at nicoleruns2620.at.gmail.com with your bid amount and which lot you are bidding on. I will post the highest bid below the lot and update as I get more bids so keep checking back!
– Want to outbid someone? Remember, each bid must be at least $10 more than the previous bids. Smaller bids will be disqualified.
What happens when you win? The auction will end on May 1 at 8:00 pm. At that time, I will email the winners and you will have 24 hours to make your donation in the correct amount to my Team For Kids page!

And now…onto pampering…

1. Comfy, cushion-y shoes. I typically run in Brooks PureFlows but lately I’ve been really loving wearing Launch. They’re more cushioned and supportive, which my feet just need some days.

2. A good pedicure. My feet are no stranger to blisters and black and misshapen toenails so I’m all about moisturizing/toenail polish. My favorite foot moisturizer is AmLactin Foot Repair and my favorite nail polish brand is Essie

3. Nuun cocktail. Yep, enjoy happy hour with Nuun

4. Restorative yoga. Vinyasa flow is great but I really love just laying on the mat and stretching some good deep stretches for an hour. My body will cry otherwise.

5. Compression socks. I’ve been rocking CEP compression socks since college, I love the bright colors and the cozy hug of my feet/calves.

Some other things I love:
– a big bowl of mac & cheese
– cat cuddles
– shopping in a non-crowded store
– lunch at Whole Foods
– a good massage
– and of course…wine

run-for-wine

I know I’ve said this before, but my favorite way to pamper myself/relax after a long day is to get some cozy socks and PJs on, brew some delicious tea, and lounge on the couch while watching TV. THE. BEST.

How do you pamper yourself?
