One Hot Run

My friends! Today, I am not talking about looking hot while running (wish I was), I am talking about how to suit up for a run on a hot day!

This marks Summer Bucket List Day 3!!











A major part of my bucket list will always be to run as frequently as possible. Dressing the part isn’t always easy when it is humid and in the 90s all day LONG!! I do have a good rule of thumb, though the dorkier, the comfier. This rule does not just apply to running in extreme weather, it also applies to pajamas, slippers, sweatpants, & novelty t-shirts.

So, what do I typically wear in the heat on the trail? –Athletic socks, trail runner sneaks (mama needs the traction), a padded sports bra (yeah, I am a lady), a breathable and bright tank, a cap, sunscreen, bug spray (if you even knew the amount of bugs that have drowned in my sweat, died upon impact, & are in my belly, you’d be terrified), and “deo” for BO (just kidding about the BO, remember, I am a lady). And… my new, fav, dorky accessory- the towel I wrap around my neck!

Let me know about your tips for running!

Stay cool runner babes ❤




Summer Checklist : Day 25

Only 25 days of Summer left and can you believe the sun set at 7:41 EST! Can you believe it? This means we are having less and less daylight to enjoy our summertime activities! Make sure you get outdoors and soak in that vitamin D!

ITEM : 7 Take your dog on a nature walk

Nigel, AKA Nigey, my Miniature Schnauzer has become blind this Summer. It has definitely upset everyone in our family, but let me tell you what – he can still put a smile on my face by just being his goofy self! One thing that he absolutely loves is going on adventures in the yard with me. I let him lead the way throughout the yard – he uses his sniffer and I use my peepers for backup. It is a great bond that we share 🙂 You both will get in some exercise and stay healthy by taking walks, and your pup will love you for it (most likely by giving you tons of slobbery kisses).

Makin’ memories & lovin’ nature walks with Nigey ❤

Winding Uphill Battle!

A 6 mile loop in the morning feels great – unfortunately, today it was pushing 90 degrees and it was humid and uphill and I am already tired from the first 3 miles and I was dreading the last 3 and my toes hurt and a gnat basically drowned in the sweat that pooled on my brow…… The list of struggling #WhiteGirlProblems could go on forever. But, I kept my head up and forged on to the top! My favorite part was being the only person I passed who was actually going up it instead of down it! I hope to improve upon this loop tomorrow and conquer this heat. Wish me luck and always remember – mind over matter ❤
