5 for Friday

Fridays here are reserved for sharing 5 posts or articles that are running & fitness related, health related, recipes or even parental/family related. I love to read and research so this gives me a really good way to compile some of the things I’ve read and share with you all which ones that made an impact on me. I like the idea of being able to include a variety of types of media. This is also a great way to help promote and introduce everyone to other bloggers out there.
