5 Things We Like Friday

Trying a new feature on our blog.  Let us know if you like it!

1. OOFOS Recovery Footwear *

Pro: These are VERY comfortable! Designed to be worn for recovery after a long run/race or just for long days, these are well made and provide excellent arch support. I have recently converted to a standing desk in my office, and these are perfect to keep me on my feet and still comfortable all day. There are several colors and styles available for men and women.
Con: The shiny coating on my black OOCloog Luxe clogs has started to peel. Next time, I'd like to get the OOlala (flip flop style) in one of the fun colors they offer.  The OOCloog - Men's clogs have not been available in larger men's sizes, at least in the past few months we've been checking. DG wears a 13, so he could only get the OOFOS OOriginal, not the clog he would have preferred.

2. Cordskinz*

Pro: Available in many fun colors and keeps your earbud or headphone cords untangled.
Con: Did not cover the entire cord assembly, so I still have the tangling issue. I would need to order two sets to cover my earbuds.

3. run Disney MagicBand Vinyl Decal on etsy.

Pro: Only $4 and you can add a little running Mickey decal to your Disney magic band. They have a lot of other cute Disney inspired images made into decals.
Con: I can't think of any. These are cute and very reasonably priced.

4. Trader Joe's Roasted Seaweed Snack

Pro: Satisfies your salty, crunchy cravings for a mere  $0.99. Entire package has only 60 calories (2 servings per package/ 30 cal. each).
Con: Wish there was a way to reduce the excessive packaging, and make this eco-friendly.

5. Daiya Chocolate Cheezecake

Pro: OK, I was impressed.  No, it doesn't taste like homemade, but it had the tartness, creaminess, and texture I had almost forgotten I missed.  My omnivore husband's take: "I can't tell the difference between this vegan cheezecake and a regular dairy cheesecake that we could get from a grocer."  Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free, Soy-free. Vegan. Excellent!
Con: Right now, I can only find these at Whole Foods. Would like to see them in more grocers.

Hope you liked our little roundup.

Until next time.
Run Happily!

TJ's seaweed is one of my favorite snacks!


My mom got a pair of the Oofoos for christmas so she could wear them after PHM this year but it ended up that she couldn't bring them because they didn't fit in her luggage! Needless to say I prefer driving to race-cations so we can pack as much aas we want!


And it is now one of mine! So much better than reaching for a bag of potato chips. Thanks for stopping by the blog. :)


I agree! And not just what we take, but what we bring back! What if there was something at the expo you just had to have - but it wouldn't fit into your bag?


Fun list. I just got a pair of Oofos a little while ago. I love the runDisney MagicBand as well.


OMG I am half Korean and Koreans eat a lot of seaweed so that has been a frequent staple of mine. (Although I usually eat it with rice). I have to admit the things my mom gives me (usually what she makes) are awesome because they are so healthy and are usually some type of vegetable lol. Just thought that was cool to see on here. :)


We got a new foster dog, and his first night with us, he ATE my Oofos! Guess I need to get a new pair. ~DB


I grew up eating South American food (lots of meat and potatoes or chicken and rice) and didn't have seaweed until I was an adult. I LOVE IT though. So many different varieties and it's so versatile - in soups, salads, over rice, or just to snack on plain. ~DB
