F&F Friday Favorites ~ 06.13.14

Thank you for all the good luck wishes on my presentation yesterday. I appreciate your good vibes! I presented at my company’s nursing forum on the topics of self care for healthcare and the benefits of corporate wellness programs.

2014 Nursing Forum

I was nervous to present to a room of over 200 people, especially in front of several executives from my company, but I am pleased with how it went. Today I’m back at the forum to lead a “Move and Mingle” walk for the nurses to network and energize themselves before their last day of learning. Then I’m finishing out my work day at home, squeezing in a workout, and plopping on the couch for the night.

Before I get into today’s Friday Favorites, I first want to recap my posts from this week:

I also want to share a couple of fun race discounts with my local readers:

Dirty Girl Mud Run
This is a women’s only 5k mud and obstacle race series, and it’s returning to the Boston area the weekend of July 19. For more details, click here. All F&F readers can get $10 off their registration with the code BLOGFRIEND.

Rock and Run Boston
This obstacle race is being held on June 1st at Assembly Row in Somerville. Since it’s owned and presented by Radio 92.9, there is live music at every mile marker and a concert at the finish. For more details, click here. All F&F readers can get $15 off their registration with the code FITNESS.

Urban Raid Boston
Urban Raid is another obstacle race returning to Boston after being hosted here for the first time last year. The race will start and finish on City Hall Plaza, and the 5k downtown course will take you through a series of obstacles set at Faneuil Hall, Long Wharf, and more. For more details, click here. All F&F readers can get $15 off their registration with the code FITNESS.

Let me know if you end up running any of these! I would love to have you guest post about your experiences. 🙂

And now it’s time for this week’s round-up. Enjoy!

Friday Favorites


Foodie and Recipes


Balance and Inspiration

–Let’s chat–
Tell me about a time you had to present to a large group of people before. Anyone have any fun races coming up? Do you have any fun links to share from your week? Did any of the links I shared resonate with you? What’s up for the weekend?

Aside from my homemade pizza night in tonight, tomorrow I’m going to a wellness retreat in Boston with my friend Erin, and Sunday I will be seeing my dad and grandfather for Father’s Day after attending a baptism in the morning. Hope you all have a great weekend!

  1. I heard your presentation was wonderful yesterday! That is straight from one of the attendee’s who was from Lehigh Valley Hospital in PA! She said it was motivating and inspirational. Great job, Athena!


  2. Thanks for all the great links to read! I’ve been off my blog game lately so this helps 🙂

    I used to always be ridiculously nervous for a presentation. I still do get nervous, but nothing like I used to. I was nervous for a little while for my PhD dissertation, but I actually felt very confident once I had been through the presentation a few times, especially since I pretty much knew the material by heart!


I'd love to hear from you! Leave a comment.
