One of my favorite places to shop is at specialty grocery stores (please hold sarcastic eye roll). I’m serious! I just feel like when you walk in, everything has a perfect place; there is thoughtfulness in the items they carry; you get a great customer experience, most of the time; and they typically carry fewer options that are bad for you. As I’m starting to regret choosing to share my weird love for grocery stores, I remember why I even wanted to share. After spending too much (more times than I can count), having a lot of food go bad because I over bought, and choosing poorly based off my excitement (this one might just be me), I wanted to share a few tips on how I try to make my groceries count.
It has been a bit over a week since I ran my first half marathon. Until the day before the race, I kind of forgot how nervous I was when I first signed up. I started to feel stronger during my training and my nerves took a back seat, but when I arrived in Disney World, I quickly remembered (some of those nerves were because I finally was meeting the man of my dreams, Mickey Mouse). Now that I am a half marathon survivor and looking for my next race, I thought I’d share some tips that I used as a first timer to train, other than running.
