The Friday Five

1.  I am loving my Kindness is Magic tank from Be Love Apparel.  ***P.S. They donate $5 from every order to their current service project.  Right now, it’s Alexandria House for homeless women and their children.

2.  The Dalai Lama celebrated his 80th birthday!!   Click HERE to read 17 of his most famous quotes.  My favorite is “My religion is very simple.  My religion is kindness.”  Just another reason to love the above tank!

3.  I posted last weekend about my new Yeti Rambler.  It lives up to the hype!!  I’ve used it for smoothies and coffee and it really keeps them cold and hot.  Thanks to Sam for the recommendation!!!

4.  I have been wearing my Ocean Turquoise Mala Beads almost every day since I bought them.  They’re made in Bali by Aum Rudraksha Designs.  Their jewelry is sustainably harvested, fairly traded, and ethically produced.  Click HERE to read more about Mala jewelry.

5.  My friends and I all had a good time taking this How Fit Are You, Really? quiz.  I got ‘under 20′ which totally made my day!  If you take the quiz, share your fitness age in the comments!

Happy Friday and Chose Joy!

    Woohoo mine was under 20 too! But I’m 25, so that’s not really that exciting haha. Yeti coolers are awesome so I’m sure the tumbler is great too

    I’m like pretty scared to take the “how fit are you quiz….” what if it tells me I’m like 80!?! Haha. Hope you have a fabulous weekend :)

    Sweet, I got under 20! Was not expecting that since I turned 40 this year. Thanks for your blog, Jennifer. I love reading it. You are an amazing runner and I’m inspired by you every day. I’m off to find me a Yeti :)

    I got under 20 also. Nothing wrong with that! I use my Zojirushi thermal cup and it is amazing. I can put hot tea in it and it will still be too hot to drink 8 hours later. I’ve still had it very warm after 24 hours. It’s crazy!

    I got 20 (not under 20), but I’m 51. Nothing like an Internet quiz to make your day!?

  • paria@momontherunsanity.com

    I’ll have to take that quiz later….looks like everyone is getting under 20 so now I’m feeling some pressure;) Love the beads

    Have you ever done VO2 testing? My OTF is offering this weekend ….. Not sure if it’s worth it, possibly more accurate in setting appropriy HR training zones?

    I’m way behind on reading blog posts, Jen; sorry for the late comment! Anyway, I got ‘under 20,’ too which, since I just turned FORTY last week, made me really happy. :)
