Friday Favorites

It’s that time again!! Here are three things I’m loving this week:

1. Running at the Chattahoochee River.  It’s a popular spot here in Atlanta among runners, but I didn’t actually check it out until Marathon Training.  I love running here because it’s so relaxing, and it’s FLAT, which is rare to find in Atlanta.  Also, it’s easy to get 8 miles with one out-and-back, and it’s shaded which I think will help in the summer.  I’ll be meeting Amanda and Sarah here for our long run in the morning!  It is also a great place for a walk and I think I’ll be bringing Skipper here some on the weekends this summer.

Nathan HandHeld Water Bottle.  Speaking of summer, the hot temperatures are here, and that means hydration becomes even more important.  When I was marathon training, I tried the fuelbelt.  I loved the fuelbelt, but I found that on longer runs it constricted my stomach too much and caused reflux (I have GERD).  I switched to this bottle at Christina’s recommendation and I really like it.  It is insulated and holds 18 oz of liquid.  It’s easy to carry and I love the little pouch on the front – it’s perfect for my fuel.

Have a great weekend everyone!
