High Five Friday is here! Can I get YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!! from everyone?

Want to get in on the High Five Friday fun? You can find all the details HERE. Do your own thing. Have fun with it. The only requirement? Make it something good to share. Because we all need more good in our lives.

5 from Instagram – I share more pics on Insta. Are you following me?

Sunset yoga hike. I need more of this in my life. It’s good to look out, take a deep breath and soak in the beauty that is always around you.

National Ice Cream Day was last Sunday. Of course we celebrated. And then I had to get sprinkles because they were free in honor of the big day.

Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy.

It may be all in my head but after faithfully implementing THIS BOSU routine into my workouts 3x/week, my posterior tib tendon is feeling 100% strong and ready to rock out some miles. You know I’ll be doing this routine for life now!

Jump squats. Do them and take flight.

5 Things

Race Report: Vermont 100 Miler – Jess is unbelievable. She is my awesome massage therapist and one freakin’ strong runner. She’s been through a ton of very serious health issues since the beginning of the year but persevered. Her grit and determination is amazing. I’m so proud of her!

Being an Athlete vs Being a Skinny Girl Who Runs – Tina has been hitting her posts out of the park lately. This is a post that any woman can relate to – elite runner or regular ol’ Susie Q. Skinny does not mean healthy. I learned this years ago back in high school. I was in an Advanced Fitness Training class (our gym teacher was a competitive female bodybuilder who was an awesome example of health). We did body fat testing and all assumed that the skinniest girl in the class would have the lowest body fat. Not true at all. She actually had the highest! Skinny does not mean healthy.

The Story Behind the Running Police Officer’s Act of Kindness – I love this story. Random acts of kindness. Do them more often. Spread the good!

11 Moves That Help Athletes Get Better with Age – I’m not getting any younger and neither are you. These moves are simple yet highly effective. Do them!

A Letter to My Future Self – Other than ‘stay rad’, what would you say to your future self? Something to ponder for sure. I might have to do this.

  1. High five on your foot feeling better – what wonderful news! That ice cream looks so good even though it’s cold and rainy here – I somehow completely missed out on National Ice Cream day. Have a wonderful weekend!
