checked luggage, Runner’s World, boot camp
Good morning and happy Friday!
It’s been a while since I’ve shared Five Things Friday and with so many good things going on it’s the perfect time.
On my flight home from LA after Blogfest some of my things were stolen at some point between checking my luggage at LAX and picking it up at baggage claim in Cincinnati. Mostly workout clothes were stolen but also, underwear. Yep, every pair I packed for the trip. Gone. My yoga mat. It’s not the mat I use most often but, still, it was mine. My point to all of this is, every time I think about my things being stolen or I realize something else is gone I get this sinking feeling in my stomach. It’s an invasion and that’s exactly how it feels. I’ve decided I will NEVER check my luggage again.
On the bright side, I’ve replaced my favorite pair of striped yoga pants!
One of the new Jill Conyers [dot] com logos. What do you think? The re-design is taking longer than I expected. We haven’t rushed to get it done and it’s turning out exactly as I envisioned. It’s getting close to reveal time!
I’m in the process of creating a bootcamp and making plans to start taking clients as a personal trainer (how awesome is that!) and loving every minute of it. In thinking about all of this, of course, I’ve been wondering, what exactly are people looking for in a personal trainer? What is most important in selecting who they would want to work with?
I would be so grateful if you would answer:
What would you look for in 1. a personal trainer and 2. a bootcamp?
Nutbutter love! It’s not a secret. I’m a huge fan of nut butter especially almond. But, with the exception of my recipe for flax vanilla almond butter, my almond butter experience has been limited to the goodness of plain almond butter. I didn’t need anything else. Or, so I thought. Wild Friends generously sent me their nut butter products to try and, wow, I was missing out on the variety of almond butter flavor possibilities. Any recipe with almond butter, replace it with any of the variety of flavors for an extra boost of goodness! One of my favorite green smoothie recipes with the Chocolate Almond Butter with Crunchy Almond Pieces is fantastic! Some might say I get a little too excited about almond butter.
A 3-day celebration of running!
I’m so excited to have invited back to 2015 Runner’s World Half & Festival the weekend of Oct. 16-18 in Bethlehem, PA. I attended the event in 2012 and it was one of the best events I have attended as a blogger. Check out some of the photos here → Runners World Half & Festival
And, yes, as a matter of fact, that is me with running greats Dean Karnazes, Bart Yasso, Amby Burfoot and Shalene Flannagan.
This was another chance to meet blogging friends in real life and I had awesome roommates!
On the schedule for this year, Olympian great, Deena Castor will be attending, a trail run, and of course the Hat Trick is back, running 3 races in 3 days (5K, 10K and half marathon).
