Fall Running Style with Target® C9

must have running items

Fall is one of those times where the weather is quite unpredictable. It might be 60 degrees but super windy (like it was in Nebraska for my 7 mile run-walk), or it might even be in the 40s and sunny.

It could even be snowing. I mean, this is Minnesota.

My solution: layers.

I know for a fact that I will have a couple of layers on for my upcoming race (half of my costume is that zebra running jacket!). I’m going to share with you some factors to take into account as well as some of my favorite Target® C9 running pieces.

The Happy Things Series

I’m totally fine with sharing the struggles that go on in my life or having a negative opinion on something. I think that is necessary to having a genuine blog. Some things in life are good and some are bad, right?

The thing is, I don’t want my little space on the internet to be a total downer. There is so much in life to be happy about and I want to start high lighting those things every once in awhile. I know it benefits me to look on the positive side of things and hopefully it will remind you of the happy things in your life as well!

Why Would You Try to Make Money Blogging?

This is a post I’ve been putting off..oh..for months? Ever since I started trying to diversify my blogging income and started sponsored posts (gasp!) this year, I’ve wanted to talk to you guys about the mindset behind all of this.

Money + Blogging.

It’s a tricky thing to talk about. It’s kind of awkward and even taboo among some bloggers. (thus stalling on writing a post about it.) Some view it as “selling out” but others criticize bloggers for not taking their blogs seriously and for not taking money for product reviews.

With the conflicting ideas out there…let’s talk about why I decided to make money blogging.
