High Five Friday

I am sooo sorry to all of the Bloggers I missed last week as I took care of a SICK Muscle Man.. This week we have a FULL racing schedule.. Click on the names to go visit and drop a HIGH FIVE!!

Not training for any races right now I have really enjoyed the RUNNING ON MY TIME! And at WHATEVER PACE! I feel like a Zen runner, with zero self-pressure. Will reconnect with Amanda for a 3rd Date training run tomorrow morning..YIPPEE!! Hoping for a break in the clouds and a few less puddles to tromp.

Other than that I am HOPING to get some major Christmas shopping done and to pull together the details for a GIVEAWAY next week. Stay tuned! I am going to pre-apologize if I don't make it around Bloggy land to comment this weekend, I won't be around a computer much and need a little PC DETOX.. You are all in my thoughts!!

Thanks for the High Five! I will be thinking of Kelly's sister Cathy and Heather (the local young lady) while I run. Knowing that I am blessed to be able to be doing it!!

Enjoy the weekend of PC detox!!

Oz Runner said...

love your high five Fridays....I decided not to do the Turkey Trot..there is a 10 mile (which I was planning on doing) and a 2 mile....I could do the 2 mile, and maybe even the 10 mile if I pushed it, but i dont want to push it....i called to be a volunteer at the race though, and am waiting on a call back...have a great weekend!

RunningLaur said...

I'm doing a 10k turkey trot too - and a half marathon the weekend after next (Fiesta Bowl Half Dec 6th!!) Lots of racing!

Happy High Five Friday!

I hear you on needing the PC Detox. I usually try not to spend too much time on the computer on the weekend... kinda hard with my laptop staring at me from the coffee table. ;)

Have a good one!!!

Christina said...

13.1 miles per week is so easy and you can do it in your sleep. I'm going to need to put a reminder in my outlook calendar so I keep checking it to make sure I hit the 1000 miles.

Cindy said...

Thanks, for the high five. Too bad, I came down with a stomach virus. I'm feeling better at the moment. I'm not sure how well the race will go. You just made my morning!

Michelle said...

Hope the Muscle Man feels better! Good luck to all of you racing this weekend!

Kasey said...

THank you so much for the high five! I am so excited and nervous about tomorrow! I keep thinking- what if I'm tired when I wake up, or what if my knee and ankle start bothering me? I'm a wreck, but at the same time super excited! thank you= have a great weekend!

Megan said...

I'd like to be on High Five Friday. I'm running the 5 mi Turkey Day Race in NOLA on Thanksgiving. But more importantly, I conned my hubby into running the 1mi fun run while pushing our girls in the stroller. This will be his first ever race.

The Jesse said...
