Bra Fitting, Running and Kombucha!

Yesterday I had a progression run on tap and it felt pretty darn good.  I started off very tense and still felt sore from all that kettle bell work on Monday but once I got past the first 2 miles I was settled in and focused on my pace.  I ended up with 10 miles in 72 minutes and followed up with my good ol' foam roller and PT moves. 

I had a gift card and coupons for Victoria's Secret and I was in major need of new NON sports bras so we took a trip to the mall!  My boys were less than thrilled with having to go into the "boobie store".  The sales people are awesome and hooked me up with the right size bra.  It is amazing how much better and more confident you feel with proper support!!  So after I completely embarrassed my boys I had to give into there request for sushi followed by Auntie Anne's. 
Think the chairs are small enough?
Today's workout was a leisurely trail bike ride around Lum's Pond with my uncle followed by swimming 1950 yards in 45 minutes.  It has been years since I rode a road bike and let alone on a trail!!  I am in love with it and cannot wait to do it again.

One thing I am loving lately is Kombucha:

Kombucha is made from sweetened tea that has been fermented by a symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast (a SCOBY, a.k.a. “mother” because of its ability to reproduce, or “mushroom” because of its appearance).  There are many amazing health benefits to this drink and I am just learning more and more about it!  One of kombucha’s greatest health benefits is its ability to detox the body because it is rich in many of the enzymes and bacterial acids your body produces and uses to detox your system, therefore reducing your pancreatic load and easing the burden on your liver.  Kombucha is also high in glucaric acid which is said to help prevent cancer.  It also contains glucosamine and is a natural probiotic and with help improve digestive health.   These are just a few of the benefits I have come across while reading about it.  Angel gave me a great website to checkout called that has videos and instructions on all these things!  I can tell you that when I fuel my body properly I feel like a better person and have more energy.  It is amazing how the body responds when you treat it well.

I have to go to bed early since I am doing a 18 mile trail run in the morning so Good Night!

Happy Running!

  1. I am extremely pleased with this bra. I have a very hard time finding large enough bras in stores so have had to resort to buying online. The bra is wonderful. It has full coverage which large chested women need while giving ample support. Playtex 18 hour bras are extremely comfortable and you can barely notice you even have it on. I normally wear a 38DDD and read the previous reviews saying you should go a cup size above and I would say that is accurate. The is the perfect size and I plan on buying several more.
