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!



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…

Swimsuit roundup

Just got back from a glorious week with the family at the beach.  It was really what I needed in order to re-charge my batteries before the upcoming school year begins next month. It is always the hightlight of our summer and really our entire year because we get to spend a whole week together with family and extended family.  My youngest son was so upset for it to end that he nearly cried himself to sleep last night. (He's 13 now!)In honor of our beach trip I seem to always buy a new bathing suit....with the exception of this year! I didn't buy any new suits but managed to have a different one to wear each day. Thought I would do a bathing suit roundup of my suits and if they're not availbable anymore I linked some selections of suits that are similar in style. First off is this triangle suit from last year that I purchased from Target (linked to similar style)- which I topped with the Michael Stars Ruana from the summer 2017 FabFitFun box. (By the way, so many cool things…
