Things I Am Loving Thursday and One Thing That I Am Not


1. My Nuun Singlet and Watermelon Nuun- I received my Nuun singlet via UPS on Tuesday and I was a little more than excited. I am not sure when or where I am going to wear it but I am excited to show it off! Speaking of Nuun, the new watermelon flavor is the next best thing to…I don’t know what!! It is my favorite flavor of the three new ones that they just released. You have to try the new flavors!
2. Spun Performance Compression Socks-I received the compression socks that I won from a giveaway on Monday and I tried them out. Not too bad and I think I kind of like them. I am thinking that I will use them for recovery since they blend in a lot better with my work attire. They are really comfortable and fit perfectly and are priced much cheaper than most compression socks!
3. Miles for March- I am so excited that I have ran 80 miles so far this month and we still have ten days left in the month. I know that I have to take it easy and not get too excited because when I do I tend to over due it and that can lead to things that I don’t like! The good old “I” word which I am not going to even mention! Bottom line is that I think it is going to be a good month for me!
I do have some really sad news and it is the one things that I am not loving this Thursday. My 12-year old Pom, Roxy, was diagnosed with heart problems. She started coughing over the weekend and after a trip to vet we learned that she has some fluid around her heart and a murmur. She is in the early stages of heart disease so I don’t think she is going to leave me any time soon. Thank the Lord because I love my dogs so much that I can't handle this kind of stuff! We started her on some medications and hopefully they will do the trick and keep her happy and comfortable for a while longer. I have had this girl since she was 8-weeks old and I love her to death. I don’t believe in buying dogs but someone else I know did and she kind of became my dog.
In other news, I found the limited edition Chapstick that I was looking for! I was so excited when I found them that you would have thought that I won the lottery! Did I ever tell you that if I forget my Chapstick on race day that I will totally have a terrible race?

Have you tried the new Nuun flavors?  Which is your favorite?

How is your March coming along?

  1. Glad you like the socks!, sorry about Roxy.

    Haven't tried the new Nuuns yet but I keep hearing good things about the watermelon. I keep watching for it in my local stores so I don't have to buy a four pack, but I might have to do just that.

    1. I hope you were able to find them on REI.com. I usually buy mine from there since I like to rotate the flavors. You will love the watermelon! I am not sure if you have an REI near you but you can even order online and pick up from a local store at no cost.

  5. Roxy is too cute! She looks so happy in that last fluffy picture. I'm sad to hear her diagnoses. Here is to many more healthy and happy years together.

  7. It's so sad when dogs are sick! The only thing that's hard about doggies is their short life spans. I hope Roxy has a lot more time with you.

    My March is going well except for my half last weekend. :^)

    1. I am glad to heat that your training is going great. Eugene is right around the corner and I know it is going to be a good one for you. Not every race is going to be a good one so forget about the last half and keep moving forward.

  8. Sorry to hear about Roxy but the little dogs are quite often the toughest so I'm sure she's going to be a fighter!

    Glad you like the new compression socks! Bright and colorful is great but I can see how those will blend in much better for work.
