Hello!! So I realize that I have been blogging everyday for the past few years except most recently it’s transitioned to Instagram and Facebook.
Like I said in my ‘I miss you post’… I miss updating running repeat every day but I felt like I was since I was posting running and eating on social media.
I definitely want to keep longer posts, recipes, run recaps and training tips over here. It’ll make those posts easier to find or pin to Pinterest if it’s something you want to come back to later. And instead of choosing one way to post over another I’m going to start doing a round up of updates and sharing them here.
I’m actually heard that this is a good idea for a few reasons:
a. If Instagram, Facebook or Pinterest ever go away or decide to stop letting red-headed Mexicans post on their channel I could lose all the content I posted there!! (also I think there are some limitations to my rights to the content once I post it)
b. It’s hard to search for specific posts on most other sites or apps… I’ve had to scroll through tons of post to try and find something I wanted before.
c. It’s easier to save posts on a blog or website vs social media update – outside of Pinterest of course!
d. I have a lot of loyal followers that aren’t necessarily on other social media and I still wanna hang out with you!
e. I started to put together a similar end up last week and realize that it was kind of fun to see running and random food pictures in order of my life. – not ‘in order’ as in organized, but just in the order of the days of the week.
So… all of that is to say that this is a Roundup post of some of my recent updates.
Sunday: Run day or Rest day?
Monday: I’m doing a lil dance for Monday!! ➡ Time to check in for 4.9.18 … – What’s your workout today?

Example of breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert…
Breakfast: oatmeal cooked with almond milk, stevia and topped with crunchy peanut butter blueberries chia seeds and cinnamon.
Lunch: big salad with sweet peppers, onions, chickpeas, corn tortillas, avocado, dressing and sriracha.
Dinner: yellow Jackfruit curry with Jasmine rice from Trader Joe’s plus extra veggies.
Dessert: dark chocolate with some sort of orange essense that I thought was going to be gross but it was at the 99 cent store and I really need a chocolate and it’s actually super delicious!
Snacks: ( include but are not limited to) super juicy mango, trail mix, Quest bar, Spark drink mix

I went to run somewhere new to me and it was super pretty!! But I couldn’t find water fountains when I needed them and had to cut my run short. I need to plan better for long runs!
And a very important poll about the Boston Marathon vs. Coachella…
(The Boston Marathon won by a landslide!)
Whew! That was a lil snapshot of my week.
Next time I’ll share my run and strength training workouts for the week but my Garmin is MIA right now (probably in my car somewhere?) and I can’t stop and look for it right now.
Well… I’ll be back soon with more running and eating! Also – I’m working on recipes and other good stuff like that for runners… Can’t wait to share more!!
