Friday Five Linkup

Its time for the Friday Five link-up. Check out Mar, Cynthia and Courtney‘s blogs! They are the inspiration behind these weekly posts!


1) As I mentioned yesterday in my post about feet, the Nike Pegasus is my lucky shoe.


I’m on the left!

2) Picking out an outfit the night before to match my pink and peach colored Pegasus, that is also weather appropriate. Everyone always asks would you rather be cold or hot while running? Umm how about neither! The last couple of races I held a fashion show, my roommate as the judge, to find the outfit winner. And then of course there is the selfie that takes place that morning.


3) Pre-race oatmeal. Just oats and hot water on race day. I keep it as simple as possible to keep the stomach nice and calm.

4) Proper hydration is key especially for summer races. The majority of races I’ve done have been in the extreme heat. I drink my Nalgene on the way to the race. I rather have to make a bathroom stop during the race (though I have never had to) than get dehydrated.

5) And I’ll never forget to roll!

  1. I’m so guilty of forgetting to roll the day before. I promise myself every day that I’ll do better and I still don’t.

      I’m terrible about it before any run unless its a race. I think a lot of runners are like that. We are super intense about the run and slack in the stretching and massaging.

  2. I have given up trying to find outfits to match my shoes. I always foam roll as well. I need to get a new one though. My is not stiff enough and has an indentation where I roll. Yours looks nice.

  3. i am terrible about rolling as well. but great about throwing on compression post race / run! 🙂

  4. rolling!! so essential!
