Lights, camera, fashion!

Reviewing the last of my illumination devices today!  This week I had a chance to try out the shoe lights that I was gifted by my sister-in-law. 

They are the Night Runner 270 and they worked great.  The benefit to these is that they are super light and I forgot they were even on my feet! They will be good for navigating tricky trail terrain (say that fast 10 times!) at night as they light up the area directly in front your your feet. So, I have my headlamp for front and side illumination, my hand held flashlight for aiming at whatever is down in front, and the shoe lights for close to the feet areas.  I think I can't get any more LIT that this!  These shoe lights attach into your shoe laces and can be adjusted to do several different modes of light (similar to the head lamp). Steady, steady higher beam and flashing....all of these go on at the same time as a red light that shines to the back, so people behind can see you as well.  I am hoping these will help to give the confidence I need for the night portions of the upcoming Ragnar Trail race in Richmond.

Now for something totally different...I busted out the leopard accessories this week on one of our more spring-like weather days.  At first I thought this was too much leopard at one time...but NAH!  As long as your other pieces that you are wearing are neutrals, like denim or black like I have on, you're good!

Shoes and Belt are LOFT (old)
Tortoise shell cuff Bracelet  is Garnet Hill and no longer available (found HERE)
Ring is World Market (only $5!? not available online but here is a link to their jewelry)

I'll close out this post with my birthday dinner outfit.  I bought the top last year from Banana Republic.  It is such a delicate silk and has really cool silver beaded epaulettes (yes, I had to Google the spelling of that one!) on the shoulders that I love.  The necklace is from the last FabFitFun box.  The delicate silver beads compliment the shoulder beading quite nicely I think.  It was a great outfit for a great night out with my husband!  Ready to rock my 47th year!

New running socks review!

Today I tested out abother pair of procompresion socks.  I have always worn Feetures and still will but these will be my new go-to pair...luckily they came in a two pack!  They are seamless and so soft and have special areas that are more cushioned (right where I normally get blisters). I am excited to try them out on a longer run!



New shoes always make me happy!

Loving my new sandals from, yes, Target.  I mean who doesn't love an emblished gladiator sandal? (Well, probably my husband, but he's clueless about women's fashion.)
Also, if you don't already own a neutral (beige, taupe, nude, gold) sandal, they are a must-have wardrobe staple (That and a pair of espadrilles, Jennifer.) These particular ones are inexpensive but don't look it, and they will go with everything from jeans or shorts to dresses.   Happy springtime! 

Ragnar Richmond Recap!

First Ragnar Trail relay is in the books and boy, was it an adventure!  Notice I said, "first"...I had originally thought I was "one and done" with these things (as I am with the full marathon) however, I think I could enjoy another go of one. Definitely a fan of the trail version and not interested in a road Ragnar though (the thought of sleeping in a van horrifies me more than camping!).  I think I need to wait til 2019 (or even 2020 ) though - not ready to train for another in 2018!  Gotta let the paint dry on this one...So, here's a detailed recap of our adventure:

Thursday 3pm-ish: 4 of us drove down to Richmond with all of the camping gear in order to set up our site and get checked in.  This was a great plan because we were able to scout out a site and set up before the rest of the team arrived the following morning. Our start time was one of the earlier times on Friday (10am) so we didn't want to be worried about setting up camp and then running our…
