Running Essentials and Must-Haves {Part 1: Accessories}

If you would have told me anytime prior to 5 years ago that I would voluntarily go running and that I would look forward to it and enjoy it, I would have thought you were nuts!

I was the kid who dreaded the mile in gym class and looked for any excuse to get out of it. It wasn’t until I was in the best shape of my life in grad school that I ran my first mile without walking… And I wouldn’t say I enjoyed it…

Since having my two little ones and finding the importance of a free workout I can do with the kids, I have come to love running and love all my must-have accessories for running. I have some things that I’ve found so helpful, I just have to share them! I also have a must-have that I need to share with my fellow curvier runners or Mommas struggling with the baby pooch and the multiple issues it causes as you run.

Enjoying Summer!

Hey all!

My posts may be a little spotty over the next couple weeks. The summer is already flying by and I’m determined to make the most of it!

We are at the cabin now, enjoying the lake, sun, fishing, and swimming.

We’ll be heading home for an “I Do BBQ” wedding shower on the second. I’m in charge of the invites, games, and decorations. I may have to share a couple of them with you later on. As long as I get a chance to take photos – we’ll be on a pretty tight schedule.


We’ll be home for the fourth and I’m anxious to get Hubby to do the flooring in the camper, so we can try it out before our weekend in Grantsburg for Watercross. I want a test-run to decide what essentials we need to equip the camper with, so we may be doing an overnight trip in my parents’ backyard.

Pop Up Camper Remodel

Speaking of the camper, I think I need to name her. I know she’s a SHE, and since she’s also a Viking and a bit of a beast, I think we should go that route. Any suggestions?

The weekend following the fourth, I’m so excited to run another fun run. This time I’m running The Color run with my bestie and the kids thanks to Kohls. They gave us some adorable pink Fitbits and #YesMoment t-shirts to run in style. I’m loving my fitbit, but have yet to figure out all it does or add friends. I’m under my exploringdomesticity(at)gmail(dot)com address if that helps anyone find me. 🙂

I also have the Better Together game ending this week. This game has been amazing and I’m so happy with how the group has supported and encouraged one another! I’m thinking there will be a new one starting July 14th and I’m so excited about it! Wish me luck this week!

Summer is such a busy time! What do you have planned?
