Friday Five: On the go

IT’S FRIDAY!!!! CAN YOU TELL THAT I AM OVERWHELMINGLY EXCITED?! (Because I am). I’m linking up with I’m linking up with Running on Happy and Fairytales and Fitness for some Friday fun.

{And of course, the obligatory: My charity auction ends on Sunday!!! Please please please check out the awesome swag that is up for bid. The first 4 people to bid today will automatically get a set of Brilliant Reflective strips! You can check out the charity auction here}


5 things I’ve learned about being a runner on the go (aka full-time job and a strong, strong desire to be as lazy as possible whenever I can…)

1. Dry shampoo is my best friend. I really detest washing my hair every day and don’t like how the blow dryer fries my hair. But. I am the sweatiest sweater to ever sweat. So without dry shampoo, my hair turns into a greasy disaster. Lately I’ve been in love with Clean Freak dry shampoo. Pretty much all dry shampoo makes my hair look better but still feel kind of gross…but Clean Freak has a slightly less grimy feel.


2. Night wine is the best wine. I recently tried boxed wine (classy, I know…but it lasts for so long!) and it’s pretty much the best thing ever. I like being able to have a glass after a long day. Sometimes it’s just so needed.


3. Sometimes I just need to drop the ball. I pretty much set up my coffee maker every night because a morning without coffee just isn’t going to happen…but some nights I just skip making lunch for the next day and head to the cafeteria for some good old zero effort food.

4. Plan out my workout before I leave work. I will always mentally tell myself what workout I’m going to do before I step out the door to head home. If I am prepared to go home, change, and hit the gym before I actually get home, it’s much more likely to happen


5. Treat myself like a hungry toddler. AKA always have snacks in my bag. Nothing will derail a day of plans like hunger than goes unfed. Larabars are my go to lately, but I love Kind bars and Annie’s cheddar bunnies too.


TGIF!!! What are your weekend plans? I’m at a conference today and tomorrow and I’m not going to lie…I’m kind up pumped for a “break” from the daily grind.

  1. Oh my, we are like kindred spirits when it come to “evening wine”! I switched to box years ago and have never looked back! I will buy bottles if I’m having guests over 🙂

    That cat meme cracked me up! Have a great weekend!

  2. Oh I’m all about the boxed wine! Not only is it cheaper and lasts longer, but it’s better for the environment than bottles. I never heard of dry shampoo! I shower twice a day but only shampoo like… 2 a week!? I really don’t need to. My hair is so thin, doesn’t get greasy.


  3. I’m still trying to figure out the dry shampoo thing. I never wash my hair daily, but am having a hard time getting the dry shampoo to work its magic. I’m gonna look for the Clean Freak…maybe that will be the magic potion for me 😉
