Valentine's Day

A few of our favorite things

Happy Valentines Day! We hope you show yourself some love with a fun workout or a planned rest day. And we hope you are surrounding yourself with people and things you love.

We wanted to share with you a few of our favorite things for running.

  • adidas Energy Boost sneakers - comfortable, comfortable, comfortable. You'll want to keep running in these sneaks.
  • adidas Supernova bra - finally, a sports bra that holds you in place and looks cute. This bra shapes you while doing it's job of locking all moving parts down.
  • Trader Joes Chunky No Salt or Justin's Almond butter and English muffins - a great pre and post running snack.
  • lululemon Cool Racerback - so many colors! Great for layering and the perfectspring and fall running top.
  • lululemon Scuba Hoodie - just what you want to wear after a long run or when curling up on the couch.
  • Dear Kate underwear - doesn't move, no chafing, comfortable and sweat wicking.
  • Nuun tablets - easy way to replenish lost fluids and electrolytes post run. We like the lemon-lime flavor.
  • Map My Run - great for finding routes in new places and creating routes to share with friends
  • The BOB - Jessica and Lucia both love The BOB. It's a comfy ride for Lucia and lightweight for Jessica. It's a must for your Stroller Stride class.


Healthy Holiday Celebrations

by Caitlin Grams

Valentine's Day, like so many other holidays, can quickly get out of hand with sweets and indulgent treats. This year, try something different. No matter if you're celebrating with someone special (a spouse or partner) or with family or friends, here are a few ideas on how to make this Valentine's day a bit healthier:
  • Take your valentine for a run or organize a group run with friends. Better yet, find a themed race and dress up! 
  • Try a new fitness class together - do something different. 
  • Plan an active outing - go hiking, rock climbing, skiing or snowshoeing. 
  • Cook a healthy, hands-on meal at home. Not only will you save time, money and avoid crowded restaurants, but you'll have a blast trying your hand at a new meal together and can control everything that goes into it, making sure it's full of fresh ingredients. 
  • Instead of traditional chocolates and candy, melt dark chocolate and make your own fondue by cutting up pieces of fresh fruit to dip in it. 
Happy Valentine's Day!
