Belated High Five Friday

This week has been BUSY. My first High Five goes to the Buyers of our house. I am not sure if the inspector found anything, but they waived the inspection contingency!! HIGH FIVE! Which means that so long as financing goes through on their end we will be moving just before Eugene in 5 weeks :)

I received some High Five requests this week so here goes...

Have fun with it people, you know I will..

I will be out of Bloggy land for the weekend. Things to do, people to see, cities to run, kids to play with, hubby to cuddle...etc... Wishing you all a WONDERFUL weekend! Back Monday with a Long run Recap and Tuesday with the Tall Mom Race for the Cure results and prizes!!!

  • With the help of ALL OF YOU, friends and family I am at 89% of the fundraising goal for Marathon for the Cure!!! (Donation Page HERE) Less than $200 and together we will have raised $1,500 to support Breast Cancer research and early screening!! Truly AMAZING!! HIGH FIVE!!

Congrats on the house!

Congrats on the house stuff...I am so happy for you guys. Have a wonderful 20 miler tomorrow. I hope to join you guys next week. Flat and 18 sounds perfect.

THANKS for the motivation. Hearing about everything that is going on in your life is extremely motivational. You keep me going.

REMEMBER to stop and "smell the roses" - this is an extremely exciting time of your (of your families) life. Slow down - look around - smile and Breathe !!!

My race doesn't start until I am ready . . . how cool is that . . . wish all races were that way. My Tall Mom Virtual starts
after I had a good night sleep (which I did) -
after my coffee (which I am having now) -
after my toast and almond butter (yet to put in the toaster)
after a few blog updates
and after it warms up - current temp is 34 - got to love the virtual world.

HAVE A great run - I will be thinking of you running your 20, while I am doing my 6.2.

Luv ya

Take a nice nap and have a cookie after your 20! You deserve it!!

I should be on the list for the Tall Mom Virtual Race For The Cure. I ran a 10K this morning. It was awesome. I forgot to remind you of my Running of the Fools 10K in Longview. The weather was great.

Great job on your long run. I missed running while we were at graduation for Army son.

Our sellers agreed to fix the issues on the home inspection so as long as they are able to get those items fixed...we are buying another house in VA! I hope your buyers funding goes through smoothly!

Nice work Mel. I did post my Komen race report :)

What a neat idea "a virtual race" - I hope you'll do another one I'd love to participate.
