Enjoying Life one RUN at a Time

Movies, Cookies, and Baby Runs: (Friday Favorites 7/29)


Happy Friyay from my cup of coffee to yours!! I don’t know about you, but I am excited to get this weekend started! 

Landon and I have a couples’ baby shower, running, soccer, moving more boxes, and a movie date planned. I love weekends that mix relaxation and activities. 

Before we start the weekend, let’s talk about some of my favorites of the week! 

Baby Runs 


I feel like a beginner runner again, and you know what? It’s okay. Since spraining my ankle, my love and appreciation for running has only grown. I love that running is a forgiving sport. You can lose and gain running fitness (fairly) quickly, but you can always lace up those shoes and head out the door again. Even though my last two runs have been tiny mileage, they’ve also felt amazing!! I can’t wait to get back to my 8-10 milers, but until then, I’ll relish each and every step, moment, and sweaty morning. 

Mmm’k…moving on.

Circuit Workouts 

Since running is limited right now, I’ve been cross training like crazy. A couple days ago, I created a super sweaty, total body workout that had proved super effective! I’ll share that with you all tomorrow! 

The Piano Guys

Let’s be honest, who doesn’t blast Piano Guys around the house? Please don’t tell me I’m the only one…

Healthy Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies


Last night, I whipped up a batch of experimental cookies. They turned out delicious and I was super happy! I mean, who doesn’t love ending the evening with a healthy cookie (or two, shh!) Be on the lookout for this recipe later today. 

Weekend Movie Nights
