Want a High Five??

I plan to revive HIGH FIVE FRIDAY tomorrow. I know that Mom vs. Marathon has BIG plans for a sub 2 hour Half at You Go Girl.

Who else needs a HIGH FIVE for the Weekend? Comment here or on Tall Mom Facebook Page HERE. Be sure to Link your Blog if you have one.

I am running the Top of Utah marathon and hoping to get under 3:30. I ran Pocatello Marathon on Sept. 3 and BQ'ed with a 3:32:26 :)

This is an already happened, but I PR'd my 5K last weekend AND took 3rd in my age group...HUGE for this SLOW runner. :)

I PLACED FIRST IN MY AGE DIVISION IN MY THIRD EVER SPRINT TRIATHLON ON SATURDAY!!!! It was a tough event, being that it was on September 10th and it was a 4 mile un groomed trail run (which is unusual). Very tough....but I did it...placed first in my AG and was SECOND OVERALL FEMALE!

I have been so busy training for these tris, but haven't blogged about it yet

You and Amy should do this! The rates go up at midnight...hurry! I've got my costume...and am all set! http://www.spiritofsurvival.com/events.html#halfrelay

I will be running my very first marathon at the Fox Cities Marathon this Sunday. Looking for all the high fives I can get! So excited!!


Erik Ammon said...

I'm heading out on Saturday for my 5th straight weekend with a 20+ mile run after having only run that far once before!

Running the Bridge Run in Grand Rapids, MI on Sunday. 10 miles. Just as a fun run though. I slacked off from running (and blogging) this summer a bit. http://gotmiles.blogspot.com/

I'm in dire need of a high five, to re-energize me. I'm smack dab in the middle of my training for the NYC Marathon, feeling tired, not motivated, and my knee hurts! I have 16 miles planned for my long run this weekend, I need to get it done...

Rena said...

I need a high five. Since, I have a ten miler scheduled this weekend for a long run. I also didn't run at all during the week due to crazy schedule.

Unknown said...

I am the Iowa Chapter President of the Barefoot Runners Society and I have organized an meetup for Saturday morning. I get to be social with mellow cool people and take my family on a run at the lovely Grays Lake.

Not a race but the whole "social" thing is always a challenge since I am kind of in charge... :) I am excited about it though!

My 9-year-old Al and I are doing the YGG 10K again this Sunday! I am so excited to be able to do this with her again. Last year, this was her very first 10k ever. :o) I'm so proud of her!

I've got nothing interesting going on myself, so I'm happy to offer a slappin' hand to the high-fivin' line :)

Wishing the best to all of you in need of well-wishes :)

I am so in need of a high five! I am training for my
first marathon. (Chicago 10/9/11). On Saturday
is my 20 mile run. The most I have done is 17.5 miles. I am way more nervous than I should be. I need to relax and just get it done. Thanks for all the inspiration you provide.

I've completed the C25K program, lost five pounds, and am training faithfully for the Tufts 10K in October. Can I have a high-five?

I'd give you a high-five for your totally inspiring blog!

The Big Happy Family kids need a high five ... competing in a triathlon tomorrow at ages 7, 9, and 11. (300 yd swim, 2.5 mile bike, 1 mile run). So excited!

TX Runner Mom said...

Need a high five...running 18-miles on Saturday. It's been 5 years since my last marathon and I am questioning my sanity for wanting to do more!!!

Kurt @ Becoming An Ironman said...

I raced the Ironman 70.3 World Championship in Las Vegas last Sunday. That's gotta' be high five worthy. Thus far, the week has been recovery, but I've got my 5k group to coach tomorrow and I might go for a run Sunday after work. Gotta' get ready for my very first marathon in October.

Julie said...

I need a high five - I'm running my first race on Sunday, as part of a marathon relay -- I'm running the first 5 mile leg.

I started running on June 1, battled some injuries, and I'm going to try my best to run at least half of the 5 miles!!

Kathy said...

I am starting over - getting over the fear and pulling out the calendar this weekend for my first return running 5k! www.praystrivegrow.blogspot.com

Love it!!!
