It feels like it’s been forever since I’ve blogged – life has just been go, go, go! I hope you’ve been doing well and I’m so grateful that you take the time to visit this little corner of the internet. I thought I’d check in with quick and random ten life, running, and everything in between things to catch up. 🙂
- Family Time
Over Easter weekend, Chad and I visited Adam and Keirsten in their new home of Las Vegas. We had a day and a half of sibling time which was a lot of fun, and then Chad’s parents flew in and we surprised them (they didn’t know we were going to be in town, too!). It was really sweet to have most of the Agostinelli gang together again. It was my first time in Vegas and it was so much fun to see the strip! I can’t wait to be back and run the Rock N’ Roll Vegas 1/2 all lit up at night (!!!) with Keirsten in November.
2. This Song On Repeat
I haven’t been able to stop listening to Shepherd by Bethel over the past few weeks. It brings me such comfort.
3. Over & Around
Since receiving the Hibiscus band in the mail a few weeks ago, I have been obsessed with Over & Around! Who doesn’t love homemade headbands with funky patterns to brighten things up? These headbands truly stay put throughout the day and even through the sweatiest and slipperiest of workouts. I wear my band for running errands, running miles, yoga, and everything in between.
From now until May 1, you can get 15% off your O&A order by using the coupon code: RUNOUTSIDE. Find the perfect pattern for your noggin here!
Disclaimer: Over & Around sent me this product to review — but I truly would not promote it if I didn’t believe in it and love it myself! I’m proud and thankful to partner with O&A.
4. Girls on the Run
…is SO MUCH FUN! Our team has been working hard and our girls are almost ready for their big 5K race in a few weeks! It is so cool to see them progress a little more with their endurance each week. I am proud of them and have loved getting to know each of them! They are strong and brave and WAY cooler than I was at their age.
5. Foster Care and Adoption
Working in this sector is a constant learning curve, but the best part of my job is hearing stories of other people who step up and open up their hearts, home, and schedules to love hurting kiddos. This boy is served by our organization, and his news story was shared in a work email today. I have not personally met him, but I am praying that he is adopted and unconditionally loved by the perfect family soon!
6. Uninvited by Lysa Terkeurst
I’m reading this right now and I’d recommend it to any woman. Even with very blessed, full lives with people we love and who love us back – loneliness happens. We’ve all been the new kid at some point, and we’ve all been rejected to some degree. And truthfully, friendships can just be a little tricky to navigate every now and then. This book brings so much hope and wisdom to those areas.
7. All Things Boston
Boston week is the best week, am I right? I’m so sad it’s over now. I really enjoyed getting to have the day off and watch Boston with our family on Monday morning. I love seeing highlights, instagram friends’ posts, and just all of the fun surrounding the beauty that is the Boston Marathon. But this moment was hands down my favorite.
8. Lovely Words
Scripture scribbled everywhere around our apartment has been a constant lately. 🙂
9. Next Race
I’m racing at home in June! Can’t wait to be back for this awesome festival where I ran my first full marathon. This time, I’ll just be running the half, but I look forward to doing it with local friends! And of course I’ll be going after that elusive sub-2 again.
10. A little encouragement for the rest of your day. 🙂
Sending much love to you this Wednesday! XO
