It has been a HOT summer here in San Diego. It’s actually fall but you would never know it because it’s been in the 90s for weeks on end with no end in sight. Marathon training doesn’t stop just because the sun is blazing hot so I got used to running in this weather over the last few months, and subsequently spending a lot of time in the ocean. I honestly think it has made me a tougher runner — and a super sweaty one at that.
Maybe it’s a San Diego thing (or a runner thing) but I often go straight from a workout to happy hour. I typically don’t have time to go home, shower, get dressed up, put make-up on and style my hair. It would be like 10 p.m. if that were the case and let’s be honest, this is San Diego, not New York. This city sleeps. So instead, I have to make do with what I have in the span of about 10 minutes. This is my life. It’s sweaty. It’s beachy. And I just want to smell good by the time I get to happy hour! Is that too much to ask?

Ashleigh and I decided we want to run our first ultra-marathon in Malibu this December. This means even more time spent running and next level sweat and dirt from the trails. It doesn’t mean I will be any less social or busy so I will need those quick showers more than ever. What smells worse than someone who just ran 10 miles or took a hot yoga class? Not much. Again, #ScentGoals. Don’t be the smelly girl.
- Always keep back-up clothes in your car. I usually have multiple sets of workout clothes because I find it totally acceptable to go everywhere in yoga pants.
- Keep your gym bag stocked. I always have body wash (like Herbal Essences, Hello Hydration) or body wipes in my bag at all times.
- Embrace messy beach hair. Rather than try to salvage my post-workout hair, I’ve learned to love the messy bun look and beachy waves. It’s cute – just go with it.
- Be grateful. Most importantly, you get to sweat and socialize with the people you love and that’s pretty rad.

Herbal Essences has helped me to nail my #ScentGoals which in a nutshell are: To smell like I just left a spa when in reality I was just drenched in sweat from a hot run moments before my rinse-off shower.
