Happy last weekend in March, my friends.
Seriously, didn’t we just have February?! I swear we did…..
March has never been my favourite month, and this year hasn’t been any different, so I can’t say I’m sorry to see it go. I’m excited for April and spring and healthy runs 🙂
On Thursday I think I ate something I shouldn’t have because I was up half the night and most of the day with a very upset stomach, so I wasn’t able to scramble a post together – but I was able to catch up on blog reading 🙂

Because the internet is awesome
What I’m loving this week
Zayn Malik Has Quit One Direction <– I felt compelled to include this because on Wednesday I had a friend ask what 1D had to do with Simon Cowell and was able to answer it because I, uhhhh, watched the movie. I’m…….going to go now.
The Lost Art of Pacing <– one thing I try to focus on is running by feel and holding a consistent pace without needing to always look at my watch. When I used to use RunKeeper, I’d play a game and try to guess my splits and was surprisingly accurate. I think I need to get back to running by feel as watch starting isn’t helpful.
Nike gives controversial sprinter Justin Gatlin sponsorship deal <– Justin Gatlin has served two doping bans and has been rewarded with a Nike sponsorship. What message is this sending? That it’s okay to cheat because you’ll be rewarded?! Does Gatlin deserve a third chance to not cheat? This just doesn’t sit well with me at all.
How to Never Run Out of Blog Post Ideas <– some great tips in here! Another tip from a fellow blogger, Janice (that I’m totally stealing), is to create a secret Pinterest board with ideas/inspiration. Just remember, don’t steal kids. Stealing isn’t nice.
Resources I’m Loving Lately: People I Follow, Books I Read, etc <– I always enjoy seeing what inspires and helps keep other bloggers, runners, healthy people, doing what they do
The Importance of the Side Hustle <– I have too much to say about this, so I’ll just say read it 🙂
You are the BIG WINNER of a blog giveaway – so, now what? <– a great reminder that we wouldn’t be able to host giveaways without the support of the brands, so don’t forget to show them some love!
10 Things You Should KNow Before Dating the Outgoing Introvert <– you know, once I actually, like, date
Angelina Jolie Pitt: Diary of a Surgery <– I adore the way Angelina has written about this.
What do people search to find your blog <– One of my top hits is my 50k plan, but it didn’t work for me, so I really do need to go in and make changes to that post so it’s more relevant and hopefully gets shared more 🙂
February Traffic and Income Report <– while I am not even freaking close to being compared to Pinch of Yum, I find reading these income reports really helpful. I can learn where I might want to make some tweaks, or how to better utilize affiliate links in my posts (something I don’t do near well enough).
Why I Hate Blogging <– I share so many of these frustrations. I actively try to only review/support companies that I would spend my money on. I may not make as much money, but I’m okay with that. Yes, the perks are nice, but I can tell you, you won’t see me shilling this protein powder one month, another the next, etc etc. While I do accept reviews, I do so in the hopes of a long term relationship with the company. Sometimes that works out, sometimes it doesn’t.
She Showed Up <– don’t ever discount just how important showing up is.
FYI Friday – What’s the Deal with GMOs? <– science! critical thinking! Yes yes yes! You know those cotton candy grapes that people RAVE about? They’re a hybrid of two grapes which is……a genetic modification!
