Thanks for the high five! You are such a giving blogger! I did the same thing last Friday - turned my alarm off because I thought it was Saturday. Thankfully I woke up 15 minutes later and got up for work!

My weeks never seem to go slow. I attribute that to dementia - I manage to forget enough of the boring bits that when it comes to the weekend I think "Wow is it the weekend already?"

You are so awesome. If it wasn't for the fact that I am not physically ready I wish Seattle was here now for us to meet!

EricaH said...

On The Road... said...

Great list!

I'm training for my first 5K a couple of friends and I are running in Phoenix on 3/20. Needing some high fives, especially since a bum ankle has now derailed my training schedule.

Hannah said...

Mel - thank you so much for the 'high five'! You are so kind! Hope you are having a great weekend. :)

EB said...

I'm a newer follower and I am running the Birmingham Marathon on Valentine's. I would love a high-five!

EB said...

Thanks for the note.

It is actually my 5th marathon, but my last full was over 2 years ago so I have a case of the nerves.

Yeah, race day weather is a huge question mark at this point, so I just have to wait and see!
