Happy High Five Friday!
I’m looking at the GOOD things from the week rather than another event happening today. Good vibes only please.
5 from Instagram
1 ) A winter wonderland appeared again on Wednesday. There’s just something about the natural beauty of a blanket of white on trees.
2 ) I’m back at recording my workouts in my Believe Training Journal. This quote was on the this week’s page. It’s so true. “Who you hang out with determines what you dream about and what you collide with. And the collisions and the dreams lead to your changes. And the changes are what become. Change the outcome by changing your circle”. – Seth Godin
3 ) Rise and run.
4 ) Skiing and snowboarding with the goofballs.
5 ) I finally tried Halo Top after seeing it all over my social media. My thoughts? It’s good but nearly as good as the real deal ice cream. I liked that the peanut butter cup had an actual peanut butter taste. I’ve tried other brands where it didn’t have that.
1 ) Runners Plan 256 Mile Relay to Washington – The results of the election left a lot of us reeling and unsure of what the future will be like. One of the good things that I’ve seen (and have felt myself) is that more people are feeling the need to get involved, to speak up and do more for causes we believe in. Leave it to runners to come up with a brilliant idea to raise awareness. Ladies, I salute you!
2 ) Honesty – Have you checked out Trail Sisters yet? Do it right now. I’ll wait for you to come back. 🙂 This post resonated with me because I’ve said the exact same things to myself when things get tough in a run or race. This is spot on -> “In those moments of reasoning, when something isn’t really wrong, when you are creating that story in your head about what you could and could not do, you are not only not being present in the moment, you were being dishonest with yourself, you are not holding yourself accountable.”
3 ) Lesson This is Us Teaches Us About Adoption – If you haven’t been watching the show This is Us, you need to start now. I think it’s one of the best shows on television right now even if I end up crying like a baby during every single episode. Just the other night Ron and I both had “itchy eyes” during the latest episode and declared it the stupidest show ever as we blew our noses. Don’t worry. We’ll be watching next week.
4 ) Less Effort Leads to Better Running – Hey look at this! Another post from Tail Sisters. Seriously, guys, this site has great stories. Do you do a body scan while you run? You should. Holding tension as you build effort only makes you work harder. Loosen up the shoulders and watch the effort decrease.
5 ) 15 Words You Need to Eliminate from Your Vocabulary – Goals for 2017! I admit that I use quite a few of these words. Anyone else?
