The Friday Five

Welcome to this week’s Friday Five!!

1.  Thanks to my girlfriend Rachel for introducing me to the 100% Pure products!!  So far, my favorite has been their Coconut Body Scrub.  It smells heavenly, leaves your skin soft, and is infused with oils to moisturize.  Their products are also organic and vegan!

2.  The 25 Ways You Know You’re a Grown-Ass Woman list cracked me up!  #’s: 9 (but I still make Old School jokes), 12, 15 (see below), 17, and 20!

3.  Scott Jurek broke the Appalachian Trail record!!!  Click HERE to listen to a great interview from NPR! (Just further proof that I’m a “Grown-Ass Woman…see above!)

4.  Here’s my latest “guilty pleasure”…UnREAL.  I’ve never watched any of the Bachelor shows, but maybe I should start!  This show is nuts….it’s a fictitious behind-the-scenes look at how a dating competition show is produced.  It’s definitely addicting and insane!  Bonus: you can stream the episodes for free on Lifetime!

5.  The Amputee Blade Runners have a mission of providing a running prosthesis to an athlete in all 50 states by 2016.  They’re an incredible organization and they just added some sweet new shirts to their online store.  It’s a great way to look fly and show your support!

I bought the ABR Patriotic American Apparel Tri-Blend T-Shirt for Jason…

And the Women’s White Tank for myself.  Y’all I LOVE this tank and will wear it way too often this summer!

    I always love and look forward to the Friday Five! One question: How does this tank fit? Is it fitted? I’m usually somewhere between a small and medium but I prefer things to fit looser. Thank you so much! Have a great weekend :)

      I bought a small and it’s pretty loose on me….especially around the arm holes.
      Happy Friday!!

    Dan’s from a small town in Pennsylvania, and the Appalachian trail has a stop there. I’ve been wanting to hike part of it for years now, and hearing Scott’s story motivates me even more! Time to do it :)

    Hope you have a great weekend!

    Finally tried CoCoGo ~ addicted! Thanks for the tip! I was visiting Geneva Lake in WI this week and did some long 9-10 mile walks on the lake shore path (amazing!) and CocoGo was a great for rehydrating.

    UnREAL just started showing over here in the UK and I’m only on episode 2 but I’m hooked! Makes me wonder how much stuff is staged on the shows like The Bachelor!

      I’m glad to know that I’m not the only hooked on UnREAL!!

    Oh, my gosh…that NPR interview with Scott Jurek was great, wasn’t it? I found it via Twitter a couple of days ago and couldn’t wait to hear it. I can’t even imagine…wow. What I also can’t imagine is how disgusting my feet would look after an “adventure” of that magnitude. Good grief! I just heard about UnREAL this week! I’m going to have to check it out; I do watch The Bachelor/Bachelorette shows (and they are totally ridiculous, but great treadmill entertainment!), so I can’t wait to see what this is like. Hope you have an awesome weekend, Jen; kudos to you for getting this training group ready. I know tomorrow is going to be tough, but y’all are going to do great!

    I’ve been meaning to check out that show. Maybe I’ll do that this weekend; I need a new guilty pleasure.

      I apologize in advance for encouraging you to watch trashy television!!

    Lane and I are obsessed with UNreal. I know (I hope?) it is a highly sensationalized version of what happens, but its awesome. And you know that some of that stuff really does happen!

      I’m glad to know I’m not the only one that’s hooked on it! I keep wondering which parts are true…it’s crazy!
