High Five Friday

I met AC (Alex the Canadian) for a lunch hour run yesterday. He has not run in a while so he warned me he would be SLOW. No problem, I was please to have someone to run with. We set out for a 3 miler. Since we had not run in a while there was not shortage of conversation. I even convinced him to go 4 miles :) We ended 4 miles at 40 minutes, so nice to relax and run with a friend..

Yesterday was also DIVA NIGHT at Fleet Feet.. I met my running buddies Janna and Tammy for Sushi then we headed over together. It was PACKED, I totally forgot to pre-register, OOPS!! I also did not take any pictures, BAD BLOGGER!! It was nice to look at the booths, chat with the Saucony rep and have a tiny glass of white wine. And I WON a Sweaty band in the raffle, so score... I have not won anything is AGES so this was super.. Meeting my buddies for 10 miles on the trail this weekend, hope I am in shape for those miles.. WOWZERS!!

Also this weekend is a family invited baby shower for the TWINS who are due in February, I am basically their Auntie because I consider Katie one of my closest friends. I went a LITTLE overboard in shopping, but when there is a Boy and Girl to shop for it is too much fun!!!

That warmed me right up to see myself on the High Five. Thanks ~

I feel so good, and so relaxed today. I talked to my coach, my T, and my T... and T again... AND I know what has been said is true. I am trained. I am healthy. I run this pace all the time. This is going to be fun. The UBER goal is suddenly looking a little easier.

Laura said...

Happy running weekend and love that T!!!

Great linky job on all the high fives and giveaways. You are the blogging-gueen!

I don't really deserve a high-five but I'm giving myself a "pat-o-the-back" for driving the 3 1/2 hrs to the VA house on my birthday to give sick Hubbs a break and baking my own cake!

Have a great weekend!

Hubby and I completed the DRC Half Marathon Nov 7th. My goal was to finish under 2 hours and had I not had a calf injury, I would have finished in 1:50-1:55.....but instead, I struggled from 8 miles on and ended up finishing in 2 hours flat!!! (a 7 minute PR) It was my second ever half marathon and I'm proud that after having sworn off half marathons, I took this one on. It was a GREAT event. Beautiful location and heavily (awesomely) sponsored. I'm thinking I will for sure do it again next November. Join me!

Had a great time doing the challenge! Looking forward to doing another one.
