5 for Friday

Happy Friday everyone!  Sharing my 5 for Friday today. 

Hair Bands.
As the school year was winding down, I was convinced I was going to cut my hair short for the summer.  I mean real short.  I've been looking for a change and my hair drives me crazy.  But then Active On-The-Go Hair Band Bracelets offered to send me some really cute and fantastic hair bands to try out and I'm happy I didn't cut my hair because I have a great new hair tie collection to hold my hair up in the constant summer time pony.  I chose the 26.2 style mostly because I thought they were appropriate for my summer of training for marathon #4.  

- Adorable
- look great in your hair and on your wrist 
- do not pull hair
- stretchy
- great tight hold in hair and pony tail doesn't fall out!
- really affordable!  6 hair ties for only $7.99.  

- none.  nada.  nothing.  
Find them on Amazon or at Active Accessories USA.  

Summer Track.  
Honestly, I do not know how track coaches do it.  Well.  Coaches in general.  It takes a ton of time!!!  I wanted to do something positive for my children and other children in my town and start at track program.  The amount of time it takes for a very minimal program is overwhelming.   This week I've spent over 4 hours on the computer, 2 hours at practice on Monday and over 5 hours at the track meet yesterday!  And I'm only volunteering.  I am super grateful for my other coaches and parent volunteers on the team.  Without them I would completely lose my mind!  

BUT, the smiles on the kids faces makes it all worth it!  

Right now I have 2 giveaways going on!!!  Check out my ACE Brands Elastic Bandage (ends 7/19/14) and Teavana (ends 7/16/14) Giveaways!  

New creation this morning! Teavana smoothie.  Yum.  

I'm entering season 2 as a Spandits Ambassador!  If you haven't checked out their apparel line, you really need to do it.  Once you have a piece of Spandits, you become an addict.  Trust me.  Their apparel stands up like nothing I've ever worn before.   The prints stand out.  When I'm running on my road, I want people to notice me especially so drivers don't hit me!   

Last night I ran my first Bond Brook trail race of the season in my newest Spandits additions - the Starry Night women shorts and Rumple Skullskins headband.  

Spandits!  is a family run company in Maine, co-owned by two very talented runners/coaches.  What I've noticed even more this summer is that when I run in Spandits, I don't have drippy, sweaty shorts sticking to me.  Spandits has a perfect fit that doesn't allow for chafing either.  When you make your Spandits purchase, please tell me Jen sent you!!!  

Spandits carries kids and mens apparel as well! :) 
Saving the best for last.  Monday will mark 13 years of marriage to Ward.  I cannot imagine my life without him.   I am looking forward to our date night.

Now I'm off to the garden to hopefully make some progress with some weeds!  


  1. Happy Anniversary! Those hairbands and shorts are super legit. And I love the idea of a Teavanna Smoothie. I hope I win the giveaway so that I can try it!

  2. Happy anniversary!!!! Yes, coaching takes up a lot of time! Your kids and the other kids are lucky to have you :)

  3. 13 years don't seem possible. Congratulations to you and Ward and Happy 13 Anniversary ♥ ♥

    Happy 13 years! I wish I didn't have to deal with chub rub when I run so I could rock Spandits! ;p
