Racing Favorites

 

I ran the Carlsbad Marathon this morning. I’ll have a recap up tomorrow as I have quite a few thoughts that I can’t help but share. Ha.

But I also have so many things not about the race itself, but about my favorite things about racing to share too so we’ll so that first.

I’m sure you know, but my favorite thing to do starting a couple days before a marathon are get extra sleep and carb up with Frieda’s roasted purple sweet potatoes. Oh heck yes.

They are usually topped with SunButter or NuttZo, coconut oil and cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice. Seriously they are amazing.

If a race has a family race or kids’ race the day before we’re always all about it. We hit up the Legoland California Kids Race for the third year in a row. Instead of having Grandma or Daddy with us we just sweet talked friends into meeting us there. Ha ha.

The boys rocked it and were darn excited even though it might not look like it. Ha ha. Judah’s got this thing with being silly for all pictures these days. I can’t blame him.

Other exciting things were this guy with super long legs

I was pretty much over all race expos at the end of last year, but I feel like it’s been awhile so this one yesterday was pretty exciting. Maybe because we had a We Run Social meet-up and some fun giveaways to do.

I got my hands on a new PureFit bar. I haven’t tried it yet, but I like their other bars so we’ll see if this one is good too.

Obviously we had to stop at our favorite Halo Headband booth.

I’m a huge fan of all their products- the Halo hairbands, the Halo visor, Halo hat and the the sweatbands. They’re all amazing and I wear them daily.

I really think everyone needs to know about these Active Pacific sunglasses too. I don’t remember when I discovered them, but now I’m obsessed. They are the lightest running glasses ever and don’t fog up and they have polarized options. They come in a billion different styles and are cheap. They are a must have for runners in my book.

They are the only glasses I run in and one time I tried to be cool and run in expensive ones and regretted it before I even hit the one mile makr because they were slipping and fogging. I’ve never had a problem with these ones. Love love love.

Obviously I’m not the only one. Ha.

Oh and Pro Compression. Its definitely safe to say I have a compression sock problem. These are the new Sock of the Month.

And these are some other awesome ambassadors.

And this was our fun little We Run Social meet up.

2016-01-16 10.52.07

After the expo we hit up a fun local place for lunch and I had a few more of my favorites to share with my ladies.

We gave away a jar of NuttZo, Vega recovery accelerator and a Halo visor.

It’s always fun to chat running and racing with girlfriends.

2016-01-16 12.15.50 HDR

I can’t say enough amazing things about Smitha and Pam. These ladies rock my socks off and are the most positive people ever to be around.

Okay, working on a little race recap now. Hoping to get it done quickly so I can start some celebratory cheap adult style grape juice drinking. Ha ha.

    Such a fun weekend! I saw you finish today, but wasn’t brave enough to scream “go Kristin go”. Lame. I’m trying to work on being more brave and coming out of my box. #sociallyawkward. It was nice seeing you yesterday. I have to tell you how inspiring you are. You make me believe that I can do this marathon thing! Enjoy your evening and
