Fact: I only have 9 days of school left!! (Yeah, I’m just a little excited. )
Fact: Sunshine does wonders for my mood!!
Fact: It got up to 60* today! (Heat wave, baby! Oh, but don’t worry, I still wore a long sleeve shirt, a sweatshirt, and a jacket. )
Fact: The low in the state: Wainwright, AK: -6* (Yes, that would be negative 6 degrees!)
Fact: I had a wonderful 5 mile run this morning!
Fact: I do not like the smell inside Subway.
Fact: I think no matter what kind of meat I get on my Subway sandwich, my sandwich always ends up tasting the same to me. (Okay, I’ve only really had turkey, ham, and roast beef so maybe that’s not saying much.)
Tonight I tried the new Orchard Chicken Salad (chicken + dried cranberries + apples + celery + mayo), which was really good! I would definitely get it again! Plus, apparently it was the same price as a Veggie Delight sub, what’s up with that??
Fact: These chips are awesome!
Fact: I do not like how artificial sweeteners (Splenda, aspartame, etc.) taste, but I really like Vitamin Water Zero, which is naturally sweetened with stevia along with a couple of other zero calorie natural sweeteners.

Fact: Always check the list of ingredients between brands of the same product.
I was going to buy Rold Gold pretzels until I realized there were ingredients listed that I was unable to pronounce. Then, when I checked out the ingredients of Market Pantry’s pretzels, I was happy to discover the ingredients were ones I recognized.
Fact: Don’t always assume the off-brand is always cheaper than the name brand.
These cost nearly the same as a box of the off-brand—for a count of 12!!
Fact: Kara Goucher (my idol!) has a blog! Check it out here.
In her most recent post, she talks about her visit to Duluth, MN (her hometown). In the past, any time she had left her old stomping ground, she would shed a few tears but that was not the case this time. I’m curious to know why.
Fact: Creating blog posts takes me way too long. I need Ecto and faster Internet!
