Ready . . . set . . . Weekend! I’ve got some great fall finds, recipes, music and inspirational posts to share with you today so let’s dig in!
*Disclaimer: I received the Rollga Roller and snacks from Nature’s Path for my review. All opinions expressed here are are my own.
Music to inspire: Genesis by Dua Lipa
Genesis by Dua Lipa is currently on heavy rotation in my treadmill and workout listening playlist. Her voice is soulful and the beat in the song just begs your body to get moving.
Roll it out with the Original Rollga Roller
There are so many great tools to use now for Myo-Fascial Release to help your body recover after a hard workout. I recently received the Original Rollga Roller to try. The Rollga is great for helping with neck and back pain, shin splints and plantar fasciitis, and IT Band therapy. This roller is set up with different zones that you can use to target different areas. The roller comes with a brief guide of different stretches and exercises that you can do and a strap for ease of carrying to your next race!
It’s still fall so still time for more pumpkin!
Nature’s Path Organic Frosted Pumpkin Pie Toaster Pastries and Pumpkin-N-Spice Granola Bars are great fall grab and go snacks. I like having things like this on hand because I am always in and out during the day and on the go with my kids. Perfect for lunchbox snacks, after school snacks or to throw in your gym bag or purse. Both of these snacks from Nature’s Path are USDA Organic Certified and Non-GMO Project Verified.
Inspiring Read–How the “Shalane Flanagan Effect” Works
If you watched the finish of the 2017 NYC Marathon you witnessed all of the hard work and dedication of Shalane Flanagan pay off as she won the women’s marathon. Runners everywhere were inspired by her running performance. She executed this race with perfection but the bigger story behind her run is what she has done to elevate women’s distance running in the United States by brining along other talented runners in her own quest for success. She is what defines a true leader and what women everywhere should hope to emulate. By working together with others to achieve your own personal success your success will be greater as will that of those who work together with you. This article is definitely worth the read!
