6 Things I'm Loving Right Now, Vol. 8

I ran out today to (finally) buy some new running shoes. I decided on the Mizuno Wave Sayonara 2. Of course, no one had them in my size. This seems to be how it always works for me. I make a decision, go to purchase, and can't. Granted, I'm limited to two stores in my small town: A local running store and a big box, nationwide store. Ugh. So now I'm mulling over plan B. I'll be down in South Bend tomorrow, do I squeeze in a shopping trip? Or do I take the easy route and just order them online? Double ugh. We'll see.

ANYWAY. #endrant

Here's a list of things I'm loving right now.

1) PiYo Live

I teach my first class in two weeks. Truth: I'm really nervous. I'm not used to memorizing class formats, and every ounce of this takes me back to speech class. Which I hated with a passion. I've taught plenty of group fitness classes, so being in front of people ain't no thang, but for some reason this feels different. Because it all has to come right from the head. And up until now, I've been able to keep notes in front of me the whole time. That's just the kind of classes I've been teaching. So then why do I love PiYo Live then? Because it's changing my body. So much. It's everything I've ever wanted in a low-impact, high intensity Yoga-ish type of class.

2) Kiwi and Peanut Butter
This combination sounds disgusting, I know. But trust me, it's completely and totally delicious. I love adding both to a nice bowl of oats, or just keeping it simple with kiwi slices slathered in peanut butter. And of course, the toast route is always good, too.

3) Run Like a Mother

Dimity and Sarah rock, you guys. If you're not following them, you really should be. Not only are they hilarious, they provide a ton of useful information. And their book is no exception. I have both of their books, actually, and look forward to a third one that they're currently working on. I'm still working my way through this one, so expect a full review later. And of course, I'll share the second one when I get through it. Seriously, look them up.

4) Fresh Corn
Oh, man. The ears, I can't get enough right now! It's all so fresh! I eat my corn plain, without any salt or butter, and it's wonderful. And there's definitely a reason why I don't have any pictures. (Answer: I'm too busy eating it to photograph it.)

5) Longer Runs
I'm slowly creeping up there in the mileage department as I head toward the Grand Rapids marathon. Remember, I'm running it as one of three on a relay team. I'll be responsible for ten, maybe eleven miles. Tomorrow, I'm set for a 6-miler that I'm turning into the Home Run 10K with Jost Running. More on that later.

6) College Football
Yes. It's here. My team (Notre Dame) won. Next week, we play my husband's team (Michigan). We'll spend the entire week "fighting" about the game. It's good fun, really.

Question: What is one thing you're really loving right now? It can be anything...

Sounds nasty, right? But it's so good. I promise. Especially good atop oatmeal!
