It’s Friday Five time! Here’s what rocked my world this week:

Good to the Last Drop by The Magazine on Medium: I’ve been looking for an article like this for a long time. I’ve always been wary about running and caffeine and this in-depth article has some great information. It’s a long one but it’s worth going through.

The Essential Holiday Gift Guide for Fitness Buffs by Greatist: This list is legit. I’ve talked before about the Gymboss and the foam rollerworthy gifts. My favorites from the list are the race bib coasters and the run lock. Perfect presents!

Avocado Goat Cheese Dip by Peanut Butter Fingers: This recipe is totally something I could whip up with the random items I often have in my fridge. Goat cheese and avocado are delicious together.

No-Jump (Quiet) Workout by Pumps & Iron: Do you live in an apartment? Are there nights where it’s too cold to drag yourself to the gym? This is a good at-home workout that doesn’t involve slamming around your apartment like an elephant.

7 Most Common Genetically Modified Foods by Huffington Post: One day I’ll post an in-depth look on GMO’s, but for now, here’s a little list to help you avoid the worst culprits. Go organic on those bad boys if you can.

And there you have it.

Happy Friday! My weekend will involve buying a Christmas tree and hitting up the beach. Can you believe those two things are in the same sentence? Weird. Perks to living in Florida.
