Turquoise Thursday: Running in Style

Getting my workout on. 

Awhile ago I posted on my Facebook page that I had started Couch to 5K. During all my travel this summer I figured I should probably make use of the hotel treadmill. In five weeks I got almost all the way through week four of the program. Not too bad.

Then I got home and stopped. However, the Boy and I talked it over and decided to get a treadmill of our own. Well it arrived yesterday! So now it is time to get back on my feet and do a little running.

I posted a picture of my turquoise running shoes awhile ago, but figured if I stick with this running thing I might deserve a few new pieces of clothing.

Like this turquoise Nike running top. I think the straps are really unique. I know it is supposed to be about the running, but I like clothes more than running. Pure honesty, right there. 

I picked up some gray and white Nike shorts at Dillards when I started running, and this Nike stripped top would match them perfectly. p.s. I actually don't like running that much, I just love the feeling I get afterwards and I sleep so much better. 

And this one is great too. I love the little bit of lime green. I really do like lime green it just is usually not very practical to wear. 

I am in love with the Nike shorts that I bought this summer. Not only are they perfect for running in, but they have also been perfect for washing cattle in these few weeks that I haven't been running! 

And finally I had to post this picture of our new baby calf. Typically we calve all the cows in March, April and May, but she was a late one. I think we are going to name her "Nothing Compares" in honor of the Iowa State Fair slogan. If you are going to be at the Iowa State Fair this weekend we'll have some of our Hereford cattle in the beef barns. Stop by and say hello. 


  1. Not sure if you have a place to run outside, but it is the best feeling to just "be in the moment" in the country side watching God's work through the growing crops, animals, etc. Running is my therapy especially when I can unplug from everything and just be grateful and pray. Keep up the running!

  2. I started Couch to 5K a while back also... and also stopped. I'm determined to get back with the program after my pigs farrow in a couple of weeks. I wish I could fit a treadmill in our tiny house, it would make it so much easier to run. I totally reward myself for running also - hey, it's hard work!

  3. I love that top tank! I might have to start running again to justify buying it.

    I did the C25K last year and loved it! Keep up the good work :)

  4. Love, love all the turquoise running gear. I'm kind of like you...I don't just LOVE running. It makes me feel good and something has to happen. lol


Thanks for stopping by! I love to hear from all my readers. Hope you have a fabulous day.
