Hello! Happy Monday! Or, should I say – Sleepy Monday!? I woke up way too early for a rest day. Boo.
So, since I was up I took a nice little walk to shake out my muscles – not sore at all from yesterday’s marathon! I feel kinda bad that I’m not sore though, gotta work harder someday.
Then, it was time for breakfast. I made a protein pancake and eggs.
June Challenge – #30SummerDays
This month I’m teaming up with Staples for a fun photo challenge! The company sent me this Samsung NX300 – wifi enabled camera to capture some summer memories.
From June 1st to June 30th there is a list of something you can take a picture of for the photo-a-day game. Use the hashtag #30SummerDays on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and play along with me if you want! Some of the days have very cool prompts so I’m excited. I already celebrated this Friday’s idea today on accident!
The first day was: Rabbit, Rabbit! What brings you good luck?
I don’t have a good luck charm, but I have something special I do always keep with me! I’ve never talked about it on RER before…
In high school I was in a leadership class and used to help lead retreats. All the members of the class got a cross and pendant on one of our preparation retreat and it was a really spiritual time in my life. I’ve always kept that cross with me somewhere because it makes me feel good.
And that’s why I got extra excited about the challenge – I feel like it’s going to push me share new fun stuff instead of the same-o same-o donuts pictures like always.
Not that those are bad at all…
Here are the pictures I’ll be taking – play along and tag the pic so I can see yours too!

I had an early morning errand to run today and stopped for donuts on the way back. I blame SR – she gave me a ride home from San Diego yesterday and we seriously talked about donuts for an hour! Seriously. #RunnerProblems
