An important aspect for any runner is nutrition. The food you use to fuel up prior to a run is just as important as the food consumed after a hard workout to make sure recovering muscles get what they need.

It’s been fun trying new ways to incorporate vegetables into meals. My family doesn’t even notice half the time. With Ali’s cookbooks you can expect beautifully easy meals such as

Friday Five: Oklahoma Running Shorts

1. Fly Script Tribe Necklace – Cents of Style has adorable, motivational tribe necklaces. The “fly” necklace is my particular favorite. “What if I fall? Oh, but darling, what if you fly?”

3. Target Beauty Box – Earlier this month I purchased the Target Beauty box. It included Laneige BB Cushion, ChapStick Total Hydration 3-in-1 Tinted Lip Balm, EDEN BodyWorks Peppermint Tea Tree Shampoo, EDEN BodyWorks Peppermint Tea Tree Conditioner, Jergens Wet Skin Moisturizer, Derma E Hydrating Day Crème with Hyaluronic Acid and Wet n Wild ProLine Graphic Marker Eyeliner. Normally, Target sells out of these before I get a chance to buy one so I was so excited when I was finally quick enough to purchase the Beauty Box. I’ve been using the products for a little over a week and I truly LOVE all of them.  I especially love the tinted ChapStick and the Derma E Hydrating Day Crème (it smells and feels amazing).
