Happy National Running Day! Cookies for everyone!And, discounts for everyone! Here‘s $20 off your next Rock ‘n’ Roll race. I’m not running this morning but I am racing tonight. Hopefully these chocolate chip-coconut goodies will fuel me to the finish line properly.
Same goes for this big plate of fajitas.
Last night we had Anthony’s award-winning fajitas which didn’t disappoint as usual. It’s the refried beans that really take these babies to the next level.
I am such a fan that I asked my fajita if I could pose with it. Believe me, if you had one of these amazing creations you would talk to it too.
The event inspired Anthony and I to add a taco shell warmer to our registry. It’s a must-have in every household, right?!
Okay, but really, back to running. My extreme lobster-like sunburn from the half marathon has taught me a few things.
Well, actually, just one thing. Wear sunscreen. USA Today published this article yesterday about a recent study on sunscreen use. Looks like they finally revealed undeniable long-term data that sunscreen keeps you young, healthy, and beautiful:
“The study of 903 adults under age 55 found that after 4.5 years, those assigned to slather on sunscreen at least once a day saw 24% less skin aging — at least on the back of their hands — than those left to follow any sunscreen habits they liked.”
The question is, which sunscreen to buy? I’m aware there is a big debate about whether SPF labels lie and what brands are the best.
To end the most random post ever, I want to leave you with big news. I don’t have to pour cinnamon sugar on my toast no more. I spread it. Amazing!It’s the little things.
Go for a run!
