Today I’m linking up with Courtney from Eat Pray Run, DC, Cynthia at You Signed Up for What and Mar at Mar on the Run for their Friday Five Link Up! The topic for this week is to share five good things…a very fitting topic for Good Friday, no?
1. Stunning triathlon gear…made by women, for women!
I haven’t loved the fit of our custom team gear so I’m on the hunt to find something more flattering and more comfortable. Betty Designs, Smashfest Queen and Coeur Sports have all debuted some beautiful kits! Now if only the Canadian dollar would improve…
2. Easter themed gelato flavours
Fiasco Gelato in Calgary makes some of the most delicious gelato I’ve tried. They come out with fun and unique specialty flavours throughout the year. Right now I’m loving the Carrot Cake and Cream Cheese gelato. It tastes just as good as my mom’s carrot cake!
3. Dove #OneBeautifulThought
I think we all struggle with body image (I even wrote about my struggle here). Dove’s campaign is brilliant and shows us just how hurtful the words are that we say to ourselves.

4. Training Peaks Webinar: Developing Mental Toughness
One of my goals for this year is to work on my mental toughness. I was perusing the Training Peaks blog and discovered that they are hosting a webinar on April 9th on this topic! Carrie Cheadle, author of On Top of Your Game, will be sharing tools to develop your own mental toughness. There is no cost to register. If you can’t listen in during the live webinar the recorded video will be available later. (Psst…want to be a Training Peaks amabassador? Sign up here!)
5. Pushing Outside Your Comfort Zone
I signed up for a spin class at Tri It that definitely pushes me outside my comfort zone. The class is based on your power zones. I haven’t trained with power before and let me tell you…this definitely keeps you honest on the bike! Class was hard but I felt energized for pushing my boundaries (and honestly a little sweaty too).
Share something good in your life on this Good Friday!
