Comfy Cozy

 I would kind of be lying if I did not normally dress like this. I am in college, so wearing leggings as pants will not be the worst thing I will do all week. From running from class to class, to studying, and sneaking in a coffee run (Biggby Girl for life), a girls got to be comfortable. Its weird because now that school is out and I work Monday through Friday I have to dress a certaint way (business attire) so I only get the weekends to wear what I want. With the weather still being crazy cold (for May) My comfy weekend clothes have not really changed all that much.   

- I HATE Nike shoes for running they really mess up my legs, and I heard from other runners that they are the worst shoes for running, so I only wear mine for walking around, or for doing circuits so I do not mess up my legs. 

-Also I do not have anything against Lulu lemon (just their prices and how crowded their tiny stores always are), but I heard gap leggings are the best and definitely comparable to Lulu.

The Weekender

This summer I am pretty much stuck in the suburbs Monday through Friday. Which makes the weekends even more fun because I have a ton of little vacations planned, and with not knowing what the word minimalist means I need a duffle to hold everything I own. Here are some cute options for those weekend getaways:

It’s a Marathon Not a Sprint

I’m running a marathon! Well, I’m actually just training for a marathon. I hate having set in stones plans that are way down the road. Over the summer I am going to train for a marathon. I am using a plan from the website Hal Higdon. I am really excited to run the most I have ever ran in my life. It’s crazy that this time last year I thought running a 5k was such a crazy long jog and now I run that almost every day and my 4 mile time is was my 3 mile time was last year (yeah it was that bad). I am super siked to start training, and I am really hoping that I don’t become that overly annoying marathon runner. I believe @GSElevator tweeted, “No one would run a marathon if they had to sign a confidentiality agreement first.” 

Here is the training schedule I am going to follow:

The Short List

If you are from anywhere besides the Midwest you have probably been wearing shorts for a month or two now. This week was the first time I was able to wear shorts outside and I loved every second of it. Here are some of my favorite shorts for the season to deal with the heat.
