Hi! How are you? This morning I busted out my new “Be Brave” mug. I just got it at Home Goods and am very happy I found a mug with my favorite mantra on it.

Oh, and I kinda love this mug that says “Do one brave thing a day… then, run like hell”. Ha!

Bonus: *Check out this post where I talk about being brave. It’s a struggle for me, but I’m going to be scared either way – might as well try a few new things in life, right?

Running

This morning I did five hill repeats. The first few were okay, but it got hard for the last two!

I was supposed to find a hill to run up for 1 minute and the first one I tried wasn’t long enough. So, I jogged to this longer hill one and did the workout. Done and done!

I used a new to me lil device today! I tried this Revolar Wearable Safety device – the company sent me one after I did the Runner Safety Blog Series.

It is a small device you can press when you feel like you’re in danger. You can do a yellow alert to have someone check on you or a red alert for immediate danger. When you use it the device sends a text message to your chosen contacts and lets them know you need help. Great idea not just for running but the package also suggests using it for online dating meet-ups and other social interactions.

It’s super small and I tucked it in my running belt no problem, but you can also stick it on your waistband or put it on your keychain.

I will not be putting Vegas down as one of my emergency contacts since he is always losing his iPhone…

This evening I took a walk while listening to an audiobook and got to see the most gorgeous sunset ever. No filter, just SoCal. I love it.
