High Five Friday

HIGH FIVE it is FRIDAY!!! This has been a L-O-N-G short week :) I have not done much running since I have a little 26.2 jaunt around town tomorrow. I am actually very excited to just run for training and for fun!! I am debating on carrying a camera or flip cam....early birthday gift???

Yes folks it is 10 days until I turn the BIG 31... Thus far I am loving my 30's and I am sure that 31 will be GREAT... after all it brings me one year closer to 33... Which FYI Muscle Man was reading his book and found that 33 has significant religious connection.
  • I know you want to learn more about 33 since you have all become as addicted to 3's as I am. So HERE is all you want to know Wikipedia style
But you are not here to talk about 3's lets get to the 5's, High Fives that is..

Quick run this morning to loosen up for all the fun and after the partying i'll probably finish up running to get over all the noise! Gee kids can be so loud!

Oh I hope you don't have a soggy pony tail tomorrow! I say if its not raining, definitely run w/a camera, especially since you are using it as a "training run!"

I have a 5K tomorrow - it will be a nice recovery from the half last weekend!

My high-five moment for the day: dragging my tired butt out of bed at 5:40 to run 3 miles before the heat and humidity maxed out!

Nicole Joy said...

Excited for you your marathon 2m!

I'm running my first virtual race tomorrow :) Runcourtrun.com is hosting it for Team In Training. I'm excited!

Darlene said...

Good Luck tomorrow.

Lisa said...

I forgot to tell you I'm doing a 5K run/walk with my Mom this weekend in Michigan! we're in town visiting and since I'm still injured and she's not a runner, we're going to power walk it together and support a local women's shelter!

Have a great weekend!

Have fun this weekend. I have another 5K on Sunday and a 10K on Tuesday night. There's a story behind both.

Tortuga_Runner said...

So wish I was mentally prepared earlier in the year to sign up for Rock n Roll Seattle because it falls on my 31st bday. Yay for June babies!!! I deserve a high five for putting in for a leadership development program today at work. I won't know until close to October who is selected, but I was nervous all day about hitting submit. Hope you have a dry run tomorrow. Love the blog.
