Five Things Friday - 4.14

I haven't done a Five Things Friday post in awhile! I kinda feel bad about it. The past few weeks have been a whirlwind and I am happy to say I am settling back in to a routine! Yes, cue confetti and fireworks!

I am once again joining Running On Happy and Fairytales and Fitness for this weeks topic. This week we are talking about spring running and I am gonna share some of my current favorite spring related things!


1. Xyzal Allergy Medicine - Those of you who know me IRL know how much I suffer from seasonal allergies. It's pretty awful. A few years ago I had a medicine that worked, then the formula changed and I couldn't take it anymore. Well, I decided to give Xyzal a shot and I have had ZERO allergy symptoms! It has been so nice especially with the other issue I have been deal with. I would highly recommend it!

2. Lululemon Speed Shorts - When I got my first pair of Lulu Speed Shorts from the Strava challenge, I have to admit I wasn't a fan at first. I did not like the way they were laying when I ran on the treadmill. Well, when I took them outside I fell in love. They are for sure going to be my marathon shorts.

Pretty much this outfit with different socks!
3. PRO Compression Low Compression Socks - These are my favorite socks. The toe and heel have some extra cushion and just feel wonderful. I wear them everyday. Sometimes for a quick run or a work shift. Either way, I love them. Don't forget, you can use promo code PRO17 for 40% off your order!

Just peaking through!
4. Goodr Running Sunglasses - When I had to get running sunglasses I was thrilled that I could finally order a pair of Goodr sunglasses. A bunch of my friends have raved about them, so I pulled the trigger. The hardest part was finding a pair in stock! They are $25 and have polarized lenses. I need like 10 more pairs in all the colors. I wear them ALL THE TIME!

Unintentional matching.
 5. Wide Sparkly Soul Headbands - I am usually a thin Sparkly Soul headband girl, but recently I have really liked the wide ones. Mainly because I love my bow headbands and all the ones I have are in wide. With so many color and texture options, I have one to match nearly everything!

This one is from Flying Pig! 
If you head over to my Instagram this weekend, you will find a fun Sparkly Soul giveaway in honor of the Pittsburgh Marathon!

Have a great weekend and Easter friends! I will catch back up with you all on Monday!

What is your favorite spring running things?

  4. My sunglasses broke over a year ago so I have been wearing my "normal" sunglasses to run... which are a little too fance so it looks ridiculous! Well I finally got some sunglasses for running but I got them at the Dollar Tree! I wonder how long they will last? Going a week strong so far. ;)
