Night Nation Run

Fall is my favorite time of the year to run races, especially when they involve themes (chocolate, music, color…etc). A couple weekends ago my BFF and I ran the world’s first musical 5k – The Night NationRun, and let me tell you… it was so much fun!

The race featured DJ’s, Lightshows, Selfie-Stations and plenty of glow gear! Once you finish the race you come back to the main stage where you dance your little heart and the night away. Hands down, this was one of the most fun 5K races that I have ever done.

Fall Bucket List

Fall has officially arrived, and with the evenings starting to get cooler my fall bucket list is in full swing. Some of these are yearly traditions that I love, while others would be new experiences. What fall activities are you looking forward to?

Go apple picking
Get lost in a corn maze
Buy a new fall jacket
Rent a cozy Airbnb
Check out the color changes up north
Try out a new soup recipe
Visit my favorite cider mill (Yates) and find a couple new ones to enjoy
Go pick pumpkins
Fill the back of the car with snacks blankets and pillows and go watch a movie at the drive-in

Art of Dr. Seuss

Dr. Seuss stories have always been one of my favorites, and recently I took a little road trip to the Dow Gardens in Midland, Michigan – where they are celebrating the Art of Dr. Seuss! The traveling garden sculptures are bronze and feature popular characters like the Lorax, Cat in the Hat and the Grinch. Not only were the Dow Gardens a sight to see, but the sculptures were gorgeous and it was fun reading the meaning behind the characters.

Get Your Goal On

Did you make a resolution? Did you stick to it? January is about to end and for most of us our resolutions are long gone. So why not set a month to month goal starting with February.

How to get your goal on:
1. Be as specific as possible.
For instance my goal is to lose 7 pounds by March 31 (I will accomplish the goal by limiting my sugar and carb intake as well as taking yoga, barre, orange theory fitness classes in addition to 5 days at the gym).

2. Write it down.
Hold your self accountable. I'll be writing down all of my meals as well as when I attend classes and the gym.

3. Visit the Vitamin Shoppe.
I have never taken vitamins before and recently I have realized how critical they are to our diet. I now take a multivitamin, vitamin d, calcium and an omega-3. I also have melatonin for a more restful night.

4. Inspire Confidence.
My bathroom mirror is filled with positive messages, quotes, vibes from friends. It's the perfect inspiration to look at each morning.

Now you're ready to #getyourgoalon! The Vitamin Shoppe is the perfect place to help you reach your health and fitness goals. They help me get on the right path and I know they can help you reach your goals as well.
