Friday Five

  • What is it about doing speed work at the track that always puts me on such a high for the rest of the day? I need to do more of it, because if nothing else it’s a confidence booster!
  • Some how I’m now just 10 days away from my next half marathon. I feel like it’s kinda crept up on me. Time to start obsessing …. checking the 10-day forecast.
  • Yoga is kicking my butt! I joined a “Yoga for Runners” class taught by an amazing yogini/marathoner. Last night was the second class and it was tougher than the first! I am ridiculously tight and while I try to break out the Rodney Yee DVD with some consistency, there’s clearly nothing that compares to having the instructor there to point out all your flaws…correct your form!
  • My youngest announced to me this morning that he only has 15 days of school left before he becomes a 1st grader! He’s looking forward to being out of school a whole week before his older brother – I’m panicking because that means I have only 15 days to finish any of my house projects or they go on hold until the boys start camp in July – Yikes!
  • The weather’s finally turned picture-perfect around here so I plan to live in my garden quite a bit this weekend. My boys gave me some beautiful perennials for Mother’s Day that I still need to get into the ground. So in between the usual kids’ sports/chauffeuring to b-day parties/etc., I hope to be happily up to my elbows in dirt šŸ™‚
What have you got planned for the weekend?


  1. This year just flew by, huh? I told my twin boys (age 16 – yikes) that they’d better get their crap together and turn in all their missing assignments so they’d actually make it to 11th grade. I’d kill to have them in kindergarten again when they didn’t know there was an option not to turn in homework. Ha!

    I always start obsessing about big races about 10 days out, too. hehe. I think that’s part of race requirements.

    Happy weekend!

  2. Sounds like a perfect weekend! Enjoy, & take pics!

  3. I am so ready for summer. I hope you had a good time getting those perennials in the ground this weekend.

    As for me, nothing much. I made a big lunch (which will be also for supper tonight) and I plan on making rolls. šŸ™‚

  4. Yoga for runners sounds perfect! I wish they would offer a class like that here.

  5. I agree with you on the speed work, I always dread it, but finish feeling amazing! Hope you had (are having) a great weekend!
