Bad Poses and Iron Girl Power Bar Review


“Oh hey, I can stand up straighter than you and rock my awesome tan lines. Jealous much?”

4 Miles in 31:59 [7:59 per mile]


Thoughts on the run

  1. Oucchhhhh kneee!
  2. My legs are really heavy today.
  3. I feel like I am a snail or maybe a turtle.
  4. There’s no way I’m going very fast.
  5. Where did all these cars come from?
  6. This intersection is never this crowded.
  7. Seriously!! I have to wait for the next light? UGH
  8. Guess I’ll take this time to stretch out.
  9. Hey buddy, you’re such a fast dog. See ya tomorrow!
  10. And this is the point where my toe starts to hurt. Wonderful.
  11. Just kidding, I see you again!! We’ll race again tomorrow I’m sure.
  12. Wow and the intersection is still busy. Missed that light again.
  13. I’m going to eat my new Iron Girl power bar after this!




I bought two of these bars with this nice buy one get one free coupon. They are delicious. I got two of the Cocoa Crunch because well, I don’t really like fruit flavored bars.

They kind of tasted like cocoa krispies in a bar form. Like those cereal bars. I’m kind of sad I only have one left, because I want to eat it, but I don’t want to lose it hahah!

Q: Have you tried these bars?

Q: What’s your favorite bar? I love Clif Kids Z Bars and Luna Bars as well as their protein bar. Now I can add these Iron Girl bars to my list!


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!

  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
