Friday Things

Happy Friday! This has been a rough week for me, emotionally and mentally. I’ll talk more about it on Monday during my weekly recap, but I’m definitely in a “low” of my training. I burst into tears more than once last night for no real reason and then this morning, I got stuck in snow on our driveway and almost burst into tears again. I’m exhausted and that for sure is adding to it all, but boy. It’s been a rough week for sure.

Anyway, let’s think happy thoughts and focus on the positives from the week!

1. I didn’t have a chance to run yesterday, so instead I entered the lottery to run Northern Arizona Trail Running Association’s Soulstice Race this fall. The lottery pick takes place in April, so I’ve got a while to wait, but this race would be great to run. It’s local, 11 miles (new distance!), and a trail race. It’d knock out a few goals in one swoop.


2. On NYE we got dumped on! We got about a foot of snow, so I ended up leaving work early so I could get back home safely. Which was actually a nice treat once I got home and relaxed after my incredibly stressful drive. We stayed in, drank champagne, watched tv and cozied up by the fire. It was a wonderful way to bring in the new year with my boys.

3. My parents got me all new cookware for Christmas! You know you’re an adult when that excites you. I finally got around to unpacking and washing it all this week!

4. I started “Into Thin Air” after Christmas and it is so good. I’m about halfway through and absolutely fascinated. Everest scares the begeezus out of me. I keep thinking about my experience climbing Mt. Whitney and it’s laughable how I thought that was hard and terrifying. The base of Everest is 5,000 feet higher than the peak of Whitney. It’s blowing my mind man.

5. Phoenix is 8 weeks away and I’m starting to freak out a little. Oy.

Happy weekend! I hope it’s a wonderful first weekend of the year!

What fun are you up to this weekend? How far are you running?
