Make SURE you're registered, and make SURE you vote!! Our nation's future is too important to sit this one out.

With election season ramping up, the Olympics in full swing, and everything in general going cray cray-- you gotta keep up! I am ADDICTED to The Skimm for staying on top of current events. One email hits my inbox every weekday morning, and BOOM, I'm feeling smart and savvy. I HIGHLY recommend!

+Diana Moss It's so good, right? I thought I couldn't handle one more thing in my inbox, but I was wrong- I love starting my day with The Skimm!

Yeah, I'm not a happy camper when I lose sleep... luckily, I have a secret weapon to hide my total exhaustion. 😉😊

Oops! I've been slacking on reporting my distances here! I ran hills repeats on Saturday and with a local Moms Run This Town group on Sunday- please chalk up another 10.2 miles for #dustkickers and #50shades!

+Estelle Holder Yeah, finally! I mean, I've been healthy, but still suffering from residual weakness. Trying to get strong again!

I love this service model! It acknowledges customers' need for convenience. I'd love to see more libraries implement this!
Library patrons who find it difficult to make it from the parking lot into the main entrance may now reserve books and have their order delivered to them when they park in front of the building.

Did you know? Red wine contains an antioxidant, resveratrol, that slows the growth of the bacteria that cause acne. It also boosts the antibacterial properties in benzoyl peroxide, an active ingredient in Rodan + Fields acne-fighting UNBLEMISH regimen. So, ladies and gentlemen, I think the conclusion is clear: drink red wine and use Rodan + Fields! ✔️ 😉 Happy #nationaldrinkwineday! 🍷

I've been sick for what feels like forever... it was so refreshing to get out for a run, finally!

What a fantastic read, +Allison Tran​! A formidable woman. As an obsessed person, of course, I focus on how amazingly Lin-Manuel Miranda captures Eliza Hamilton's drive to preserve her husband's legacy.

What a fun and clever idea! Kudos to this smart teen who decided to poll runners on their political preferences- and had some pretty impressive analysis of the results.

Finally getting a chance to post my Friday run! I was up early to run with the local Moms Run This Town group- a lovely 5 miles with hills, cool temps, and a refreshing sunrise... it had been a while since I'd been up that early for a training run, and I was SO GLAD to do it! Oh, and Starbucks afterwards, of course.

Hot day in Southern California! I managed to get out for a short 2.26 miles for #dustkickers and #50shades before it got too dark this evening. Hot and dry out there, but I had no back pain, so it's a win!
