1. I love steel cut oats but since I have to wake up at 4:30am to get to work, there is no time to prepare them. On my weekend trip to Costco, I spotted cooked steel cut oats that are easy to prepare in the microwave. All you have to do is heat them up in the microwave for 60 seconds and then mix with water, milk, fruit or whatever you like to add. A box of 8 is $7.99. Works for me!
2.I found some good deals at the Nike outlet. Pink is not my favorite color but all of the clearance items seemed to have some shade of pink. I got the tempo shorts for $9.99 and the capris for $27.99. The tank top was not on sale but it matched with the bottoms and it was $21.00 so I bought it. It actually looks really cute with the capris. I am a sucker for Lululemon however 3 Nike items =1 Lululemon item!
3. It's been a while since I ran a 5K and for some reason or another I have been itching to run one. My friend Caroline told me about a local 5K that takes place on July 28th so I just might sign up for another race. I am trying to convince my husband to run his first 5K and I think he is almost ready. I normally stay away from summer races but since this is such a short distance I can probably pull it off without killing myself.
Do you run with your husband/significant other?
My husband is very supportive of my running, attends all of my races and is my photographer, however he thinks that anything more than a 5K is crazy and is self-torture!
