So I decided to hop on Jen’s Friday Five train today. She should totally start a link-up. I always look forward to reading her Friday posts (as well as all the other days, too!) which include a short list of things she is loving for the current week. It’s fun because you get to learn about new products, people, books, shows, etc. that you may not have come across yourself.
Anyway, here are five things I’m loving:
1. These pants from Lululemon:
I bought a pair of pants from Lululemon when I was in Vancouver back in August which turned out having a minor defect. When I went back to the store they offered to exchange them for me so I picked the Sattva Pant ii (above) and holyyyyyy guacamole. They are so comfortable – perfect for post-race! I have never felt a material so soft in my entire life. The ones I got are a wine colour but they don’t have them on the website. They seemed to have more colour options in-store. On the site they’ve got heathered green, black and grey.
This girl. I don’t know how we didn’t find each other sooner. I love, love, LOVE her blog. All of her posts are so funny, honest, real, entertaining, educational, inspiring…need I say more?! Oh wait…she also recently WON A MARATHON. She’s one of those people that just tells you how it is. There’s no sugarcoating or BS. I mean, her blog is called Suzy Has The Runs. That alone should convince you that her posts are a great read.
3. Usain Bolt’s racing strategy:
If it works for him, it should work for me, no? 😉
4. I love that PRO Compression has all of their pink items on sale this month (40% off with coupon code PINK)!!
A lot of us are running marathons soon so it’s a great chance for us to show our support for breast cancer awareness. I just ordered the new Elite Marathon socks for my race! You can check out all the pink goodies HERE.
5. The Thug Kitchen Party Grub cookbook is finally available for pre-order!
I have their first cookbook and absolutely love it. The marinated tempeh (from the carrot and tempeh sandwich) and the sriracha cauliflower bites are two of my favourite recipes. The cauliflower bites call for a peanut dipping sauce and that stuff is SO good that I make a double batch now. I use it as a dip for everything. All of the links to sites where you can place your pre-order – in the U.S. and Canada – are on the Thug Kitchen website (just scroll to the bottom of the page).
