The Friday Five

Woohoo…it’s time for another Friday Five!

1.  Acai What You Did There!  I am really digging this pullover.  It cracks me up and I LOVE that it’s made of a lighter t-shirt material.

2.  My new favorite gel…Chocolate Honey Stinger Energy Gel.  They taste like honey, have caffeine, and are super easy on my tummy.  Bonus: Fleet Feet Nashville is now carrying them!IMG_9316.JPG

3.  I bought these tights like a month ago and I’ve been so excited to post about them.  I wanted to wait until the cooler weather arrived.  I’m tired of waiting….Nike DRI-Fit Printed Engineered Tights.  They have an awesome woods print that I just couldn’t resist.

4.  Big thanks to my friends Gail and Corrie for turning me onto the Feetures Calf Sleeves.  I like to wear my Montrail flip-flops after long runs and races.  I’m also a huge fan of post-run compression.  Now I can have both at the same time!

5.  @SocalityBarbie on Instagram cracks me up!  The account was created to mock the hipsters using the ‘live authentic’ and ‘blessed life’ hashtags on IG.

    Those leggings are super cute. I just discovered Feetures last week, the ankle length. At first I really like them, but I got a blister yesterday, so I think I may just stick with Swiftwick (i’m such a rhymer). Have a great day.

      I still run in Swiftwicks, but love the Feetures for post-run compression! :)

        I was so disappointed, I have not missed blisters, evil little shits LOL

    That instagram account is awesome! I’m going to have to check out the Feetures sleeves, I love Feetures socks and I always have a hard time getting socks/sleeves that fit my calves just right! Have a great weekend Jen!

    I only discovered Sociality Barbie in like the last two days – loving it. Apparently the beanie she always wears is the fingertip of a glove.
    Happy Friday :)

      Patience is not my strength!

    I saw those tights in the store and fell in love! They’re so cute and perfect for fall. I might have to pick them up as well….and yay for honey stingers! After giving up on gels because they all made me sick during races, I found them and fell in love! I love how thin they are as well- makes it really easy to take during runs!

    • http://www.jenchoosesjoy.com JenChoosesJoy

      YES to the tights and the gels!!! Happy Weekend!

  • Jamie Whittendale

    • http://www.jenchoosesjoy.com JenChoosesJoy

      I know, right?!!

  • Jen Rawson @ Pretty Little Gru

    Those tights are soo cute! I’ve never tried the honey stinger gels, maybe I should give them a try one of these days.

    • http://www.jenchoosesjoy.com JenChoosesJoy

      They’re really good!

    • Jimbo Gray

      They’re addictive. Stay away. Stay far away.

  • Jimbo Gray

    I run so I can consume most anything by Honey Stinger, especially orange blossom energy chews. Addicted.

    Okay, so now I feel super dumb because I always thought that acai was pronounced with a “K” not a “S”. Like, “akai.” Embarrassing.

    • http://www.jenchoosesjoy.com JenChoosesJoy

      I think most people say it wrong! I saw it typed out like this….Ah-Sigh-EEEE and it helped me say it correctly.

    Haha! I know who I’m following next on Instagram…

    • http://www.jenchoosesjoy.com JenChoosesJoy

      So funny!!

  • Angie @ Pace with Grace Blog

    Love those tights! Maybe I need to get those for myself for an early birthday present 😉 I am cracking up about Sociality Barbie too!

    • http://www.jenchoosesjoy.com JenChoosesJoy

      Early birthday gifts are the best!

  • http://cupcakesandmiles.wordpress.com Amanda B @ Cupcakes and Miles

    Is it wrong that I giggle a little on the inside when people mispronounce acai?!

    Socality Barbie! Ohmigosh! I am so following that now. :)

    Cute tights! That’s the only thing I dislike about the cooler temps- I miss my shorts. Granted though, when you live in Tampa, you only have about four “cold” days a year. Haha!

    • http://www.jenchoosesjoy.com JenChoosesJoy

      We’ll all be jealous of our perfect Tampa weather this winter!

    Nike tights always get me. I just wish there weren’t so pricey! I can’t handle Barbie. I am adding now.

    • http://www.jenchoosesjoy.com JenChoosesJoy

      I hate the price, but love the tights. The struggle is real!
