Fitness Friday...October 2nd Edition!

Happy first of October (or 2nd but you know what I mean)!!! October is one of my favorite months! I love that the weather (finally) starts to cool down some here on the Gulf Coast. I love all the fall decorations, pumpkin everything, and Halloween (which is also my hubby's birthday)! And then comes November 1st...which is MY birthday!!!!! I just love this time of year!!!

We had another busy week! It's been rainy and cloudy all week but we are supposed to see the sun today! My days were made brighter with fun coffee mugs this week! My friend Kirstin gave me the cutest mug! Before she gave it to me she said it represented two of my favorite things! Coffee and Owls! (My classroom is all decorated in owls and of course you know I love coffee!) It's so cute!!!


Then Tuesday was one of my favorite days EVER! National Coffee Day! I started the day out with coffee in another new mug! My friend Chera just came back from Disney and brought me the Starbucks You Are Here mug from Animal Kingdom!!! I love it!!!!


And then of course I had to go to Starbucks for an afternoon frapp on National Coffee Day! And take a selfie with my favorite barista Marlin! He makes the best coffee! And he was too sweet and made me a Trenta size frapp!!! :-)


This week also allowed time for a few evening walks! The weather is not stifling hot at night now so walks are enjoyable! The hubby and I walked one night together. And then Sawyer and I walked another night together! I love being active with my family!!!


Last night a couple of the teachers and I went out to dinner together! We had sushi...so yummy! It was nice getting together outside of school!

This week I also received my first Rocksbox!!! For those of you that don't know, Rocksbox is a subscription designer jewelry service. They send you three pieces of jewelry at a time. You can keep them for as long as you like. When you are ready for new pieces you send the jewelry back in the prepaid envelope. They will then send you three more pieces. If you decide you want to keep the jewelry they send you (one, two, or all of the pieces) you can buy it (just don't send it back)! Pretty cool concept! I received a beautiful necklace, earrings, and wrap bracelet in my first Rocksbox!


The subscription for Rocksbox is only $19 a month! You can swap out the pieces as many times as you'd like each month! And of course I have a code for you....you can enjoy one month of free Rocksbox with the code roadrunnergirlxoxo!!! Be sure to let me see your Rocksbox pieces if you take advantage of the free month!

I'm LOVING the earrings and necklace!!!


Now it's time for Fitness Friday! I had some great runs this week! Luckily I didn't get rained on during my runs but it was super humid this week. Today and this weekend is supposed to be cooler weather though! Yay!



  • Friday- #plankaday 2:06, 2.56 mile run in 21:04 average pace 8:14

  • Sunday- 3.12 mile run in 25:30 average pace 8:11
  • Monday- #plankaday 2:05, 1.68 mile run in 13:47 average pace 8:12

  • Tuesday- #plankaday 2:05, 2.57 mile run in 20:57 average pace 8:09

  • Wednesday- #plankaday 2:05, 2.36 mile run in 19:21 average pace 8:12

  • Thursday- #plankaday 2:05, 2.61 mile run in 21:04 average pace 8:04


My runs were great this week! I'm so thankful that I am still able to streak! I'm constantly praying for no injuries so I can continue to run every day. Because I absolutely love it!!!

This weekend I have 12 miles on the schedule! I'm a little nervous about this run since on my 11 miler my knee started tightening up around mile 10. I'm going to tape my knee in hopes that it doesn't happen again. Wish me luck!

I hope you have an amazing weekend!

QOTD: What was your best run or workout this week?
