Friday Things


Happy Friday! Has this week felt insanely long to anybody else? I could not be happier that it is the weekend if I tried! And I’m getting so pumped for the race tomorrow! I’ve run a handful of times this week, very easy, short miles and my legs feel good. I’m ready to give it my all tomorrow and charge up that mountain!

I accidentally published a non-finished version of this post yesterday afternoon again. Damn those dang “Publish” and “Save Draft” buttons so close together. I didn’t even notice it until Jamie commented! Ha! She got a nice little preview of things.

This morning I have a consultation with an oral surgeon to get my wisdom teeth removed. Womp womp. I’m nervous about what it’ll entail/recovery time, since I have another race in three weeks. Hopefully, since they’re already peeking through, they’ll be easy to remove, and I’ll be on my way.

Not too many links this week. The internet didn’t seem to be as great as last week. But, here are the articles I found interesting enough to pass along!

How to Cope With an Injury. We’ve all been there. We’ll all be there again. These are good things to keep in mind.

Why Goal Setting Is the Hardest Part of Running. Staring into the face of another marathon cycle, this time with school and work has me shaking in my running shoes a little bit.

I Pole Vaulted in High School. This was always a serious fear in the back of my head. So sad.

I’m actually a little disappointed Alex Trebek has no sense of humor. I want to high five this lady.

I liked this list. Especially number 3. Whenever someone asks me if J is a runner and I say no they always try to justify why it’s ok. It doesn’t need justification. He doesn’t like to run. I don’t like to work on cars. We love each other anyway.

I always end up eating french fries. Apparently, I should be eating fried chicken.

Have a happy weekend everyone! Good luck to all of you racing this weekend and happy long runs to those who are training!

  1. I am so happy for this week to be over! We have a busy weekend though, so I won’t get as much relaxation as I’d like, but I’m sure it will be good for me.

    I totally slacked off on my running this week so I’m looking forward to a “fresh start” next week.

    Haha I also saw this post yesterday, I figured you accidentally hit publish but I didn’t comment because I didn’t want to give you a hard time about it 🙂

    Good luck at the surgeon!


  2. Dentist, dread dread dread. I cannot, not, eat french fries, I will reach across a table to get some if somebody else has some and I don’t. I’ll get a salad trying to be “healthy” and bam everyone else at the table has fries, oh well, they are a vegetable. Have a great weekend


  3. Happy Friday! I hope you have a great weekend and a great race tomorrow. I can’t wait to hear about how it went.

    I totally agree about #3 on the relationship success list. Wes isn’t a runner and I think we’ve come to both love my weekend long runs. He gets to sleep in and be lazy and do whatever he wants on Saturday mornings and I get time to run and clear my head and get coffee with runner buddies.
