What’s Your Running Name?

Thursday’s are for running with the Brentwood Breakfast Club!

We ran and then stayed for breakfast and coffee at Just Love Coffee.

The big topic of conversation was the Flying Monkey Marathon!  Click HERE to read my Race Recap from last year!  It’s a weighted lottery and the acceptance emails had gone out over night.  I’ll be running again this year!  The Monkey was created to be one of the top 5 toughest marathons in the U.S.

After a lot of vacation indulging, I opted for big green smoothie from the Juice Bar for lunch…

And headed to Franklin Massage Center for a deep tissue sports massage.  I will continue to sing the praises of my massage therapist and owner, Robin Frazier!!  I go every two weeks and she keeps me running!

Brooks is running a #ThankYouRunning contest.  To participate, just upload a picture or video of your Thank You Running story and make sure to use the hashtag!  Here’s my post:

Thursday evening was our last Summer Trail Mixer and Fleet Feet and Nike made it a great one!

I got to demo the new Nike Wildhorse Trail shoes (they felt like a souped-up Terra Kiger)….

and they brought Gigi’s cupcakes!!


Like most Friday’s, I opted for an easy recovery run in the gym.

This nugget was floating around Facebook…my name is Spandex Crotchscratcher!

What’s your running name?

Favorite cupcake flavor? I opted for the red velvet with cream cheese frosting!

What are you most excited about this weekend?  I’m really looking forward to a weekend at home!

    Oh man, I don’t even know how to pick ONE favorite cupcake flavor! I could probably narrow mine down to coconut, carrot, or one with salted caramel. Anything with cream cheese frosting rocks! I’m excited for a weekend at home as well, and grilling out with friends!
