The Friday Five

1.  Bai 5. Molokai Coconut. It tastes like vacation!

2.  Run with Heart t-shirts from RunFarGirl.  I love her blog and she’s donating 20% of every blue and yellow purchase to Girls on the Run!  (Also…they’re Boston colors!)  They run a little small, so size up.  I’m wearing a medium.

3.  We have a new park and trail system in Brentwood, TN.  Unfortunately the city council decided that it was unsafe to allow running on the trails.  What?!!  Runner’s World picked up the story and the local run community rallied.
VICTORY!  We can now run on our park trails! 

4.  Superburst Camera App.  I’ve tried quite a few timer/burst apps for running shots.  This is definitely my favorite.

5.  Yes, I’m over 30.  Yes, some of the advice is crass.  Yes, it’s full of truth and cracked me up!

Happy Friday and Choose JOY!!

    SO awesome that the running community fought to get their trails! That makes no sense that they wouldn’t let you run there…it should be at your own risk like every other trail system!

    I’ve never tried Bai but I think I’ve seen it around…I’ll have to pick up a bottle some time (or just order on Amazon!!) Happy Friday!

      It was especially odd, because we have a big trail running community that uses park trails one county over. Hope you like the Bai and happy Friday!!!

  • Cox Teresa

    SO STINKING EXCITED about the new trails!!! Can’t wait to try it out! Should make for great shorter runs (6 and 12 milers). When are you going?

    • jenchoosesjoy

      I think they’ll vote to make it official mid April. I probably get out there after Boston!!

  • Maddie @ Dixie Runs

    I love the run with heart hoodie!! Might have to get one.. they look super comfy and I love the cause.

    • jenchoosesjoy

      They’re so cute!

    I kind of want everything from the RunFarGirl shop now. That’s not going to be good for my wallet.

    • jenchoosesjoy

      I love her Embrace the Hill shirts, too!

  • suzysuzyheather

    That’s pretty crazy about the trail thing. I’ve never heard of that before! And I love those shirts. I’ll have to see how much shipping is to wayyyy over/up here!

    • jenchoosesjoy

      I hope you have a wonderful Friday!!!

    I think Judy Greer is AWESOME! This video cracks me up!! I’m definitely going to have to keep an eye out for Bai 5; oh, my gosh! Those look amazing; I wonder if Whole Foods will have them? Otherwise, I might just have to order because it’d be worth a try. Another fun Friday Five, Jen! Hope you have a great weekend, girl!

      Thanks so much and Happy Friday!!

    I’m not a huge coconut water/drink fan – even though I love the smell! My doula had coconut water for me to drink when I was in labor with my second and now I will forever associate it with the MASSIVE WAVES OF PAIN. So…you can drink my share of the coconut drinks. :) As for the trail thing – glad they opened it up to runners. That’s just silly. Have a great weekend!

    • jenchoosesjoy

      I would never drink coconut water again either if I associated it with labor pain!!!

  • cupcakesandmiles

    Congrats on winning the trails! And, that video was awesome! I have always loved Judy Greer, but now I love her even more!

    • jenchoosesjoy

      She cracks me up! Have a great weekend!!!
