1. I am addicting to buying those subscription boxes that seem to be popping up everywhere. I am definitely an advertiser's dream, otherwise known as a sucker, with these type of things. If you don't know how these boxes work, you pay a monthly fee/purchase a subscription and get a box full of surprise goodies in the mail each month. So basically it's like Christmas! My husband (obviously the Grinch in this situation) thinks they are the biggest waste of money, but you can't reason with a sucker so...
Right now, I'm subscribed to three boxes: Stride Box (geared towards runners), Kona Kase (nutritional products) and yesterday I (shamefully) purchased a one month subscription to Bark Box (goodies for dogs...this is what happens when you don't have kids - you buy shit for your dogs).
Stride Box: I have an on-going monthly subscription for $15 a month. It's a mix of nutritional items and other cool gadgets for running. Kona Kase: I purchased through a coupon deal in which I got a 3 month subscription for $24, so $8 per month. It's all nutritional products and for the price I definitely get more than I could purchase for $8 in the store. Bark Box: I had a coupon for $10 off and just purchased a one month subscription yesterday. It's a little more pricey than the others, and I knew Dan would be less than thrilled that I am purchasing subscription boxes for the dogs, so I just did a one month subscription (which I haven't gotten yet but am excited!). I will say I have been turned onto some really good products through these boxes, my favorite being Bonk Breakers Energy Bar. SO GOOD.
3. I don't talk about swimming much on my blog, but I have been doing a ton of it. I'm in the pool 5 days a week or more and swimming on average of 17,000-20,000 yards a week. Some weeks I am swimming almost as many miles as I am running. The irony of it all is that I am only doing 1 triathlon this summer and the swim is super short - 500m. Yet my shortest swim workout in any given week is 3,000 yards. So the purpose of all of my swimming? None other than I have come to love it. Some days more than running. WHO AM I?? My goal by the end of the summer is to complete a 10k swim in the pool (100 x 100 workout). The downside to all my swimming is that I have semi-permanent goggle marks under my eyes, and I always reek of chlorine (impossible to get rid of of - I've tried).
I hope everyone has a great Memorial Day Weekend!
