The Friday Five

1.  How am I just now discovering Coffee Chocolate?!  Thanks to Alex and Corrie, I have two new sweet-tooth favorites!
2.  Nike ForeverGradient Tights.  I just got a pair from Fleet Feet and LOVE them!
3.  I knew I needed a great new show to watch to help me pass time during my Boston taper.  Mr. Selfridge to the rescue!  I am hooked!!
4.  Another thanks to Corrie who knows my love of elephants.  How perfect is this bracelet from Stella and Dot?!
5.  My favorite finisher videos from the Boston Marathon!


Happy Friday and CHOOSE JOY!

    I get emotional watching people cross the finish line regardless, but all these stories are awesome. I can’t imagine being out there for 20 hours! How incredible!

    Have a great weekend Jen!

    Hey Jen! LOVE these tights. i assume you wear a small? just trying to gauge my size; do they by chance have a draw-string waist? sorry for the silly questions. Those videos!!!! how awesome!!!!

    Have you ever tried chocolate-covered coffee beans?!? Umm, so tasty! My MIL never misses an episode of Mr. Selfridge; I’m glad you’re enjoying it, as well! The video of Rebekah Gregory really got me; I saw an interview with her, after the race, on one of the big TV networks and I was in tears. What an amazing accomplishment and emotional day, for all of you! Hope you have a great weekend and take it easy on yourself, soldier! 😉

    OMGosh I looooooove those Nike tights!! I wonder if those are available in Canada. I will have to check! You always have the best run gear.
    Two other things – I, too, am obsessed with elephants! And I will never get sick of Boston posts. Thank you for sharing so much on your blog. It makes me really excited and motivated to get there someday.

    Have a great weekend, Jen!!
