These Legs Look So Angelic



Lol the title of my post comes from this picture from my run today. Don’t be jealous your legs don’t look angelic or as if they come from the heavens above.

Funny Story, you know in high school where you vote on “prettiest smile” or “most likely to succeed?” Well I really wanted the award for best legs. Especially because I just had my surgery and come on, my legs looked sooo good! Well I lost to a soccer player who happened to be an old best friend.

Let’s just say when I go back to my reunion, if I do, then they will be like “DANG that girl should’ve been voted best legs!” Obviously. hah

Onto my run. I didn’t run yesterday, it was an off day. Which is why I’m posting later, because I had nothing to say. But I did today’s run so I’ll post that.

3.25 Miles in 26:37 [8:11 per mile]


Thoughts on the run

  1. Man my hands hurt from carrying these redbox movies
  2. I hope I don’t throw them as I run. That would be awful.
  3. Oh no my bracelet is coming undone.
  4. I can’t wait to return these movies.
  5. My hands are free!!
  6. My gosh it is humid out today and the wind is very strong.
  7. Oh hello dude I saw the other day running. You brought your big headphones again. Nice.
  8. I’m not going to do 4 miles today.
  9. Maybe I’ll do 3.5
  10. Leg swings are not helping my groin muscle out.
  11. Neither is this stretch.
  12. Okay let’s just see how far I make it back.
  13. Okay I have to stop, I’m winded and sore.
  14. When will I be in shape again?
  15. Time to ice my groin. It is sore.

Q: Did you ever win an award like the ones mentioned above?

Q: What are some things you love about yourself?


Pearl Izumi Top You’ll Want to Own

The wonderful Outside PR (seriously they are wonderful) sent me some wonderful gifts including this Pearl Izumi Fly Top shirt. I decided to try it out because it was a bit nippy out this morning. Talk about 48 degrees. So a sports bra just wouldn’t cut it. Therefore, perfect opportunity for me to wear this shirt!!


Things I love:

  1. This shirt material is so soft, I want to live in it forever. I want blankets and pillows made of this material!
  2. So lightweight! I didn’t even feel like I was wearing a shirt!
  3. Very breathable. Like I said, my body didn’t notice this shirt but it kept me warm and not too hot!
  4. Great with sweat. I am a heavy sweater, yes even in 48 degree weather, but it just wicked it away! I didn’t have that “ew my sweat is making my shirt stick to me” feeling. In fact I didn’t even notice I was sweating because there weren’t signs of it!
  5. The sleeves are wonderful because they are just long enough to be considered sleeves but short enough to “almost” be a tank top. If that makes sense!

Overall I LOVED This shirt. I want to wear it forever.

Here’s some information from Pearl Izumi’s website about the shirt

The Women’s Fly Top features our innovative In-R-Cool® fabric technology that cools the body for optimal comfort.

  • P.R.O. Transfer fabric provides optimal moisture transfer with a superior hand feel
  • Flatlock seams
  • Reflective elements for low-light visibility
  • Sublimated graphics
  • P.R.O. Transfer fabric with In-R-Cool® provides optimal skin cooling when you perspire


I also love the back and how it scoops down. Some shirts are odd length especially running shirts but this is perfect because it scoops so the sides are shorter and it goes a bit longer in the front and back which is so nice because it doesn’t bounce around!

So onto the run!

thoughts on the run

  1. Man my legs are sore
  2. It’s so gorgeous out here
  3. I’m going to take this nice and easy today
  4. I really need a new running playlist. I’m sick of these songs.
  5. Was that honking necessary? Do I know that person? Oh well, I don’t care.
  6. I can’t wait to get more Nike Tempo Shorts today!

Yeah unfortunately I didn’t have many awesome thoughts today.

But on a high note, I got FIVE new pairs of Nike Tempo Shorts!! So exciting!! Open-mouthed smile
