High Five Friday

Happy High Five Friday!

I absolutely LOVE that we are getting dumped with snow for the past two weeks. However, I need to clarify some things.

I do not love that the roads are a sloppy mess.

I do not love that my kids are barely in school anymore because of said sloppy mess.

I do not love how they are driving me crazy.

We need routine reinstated!

Can we have snow but have it only fall on the trails? I don’t think that’s too much to ask.

5 from Instagram – I share more pics on Instagram. Are you following me? Please do!

1 ) Pop of color against a back drop of white

2 ) Latte love on Valentine’s Day

3 ) Snow day snowshoeing with the family

4 ) Calm and serene trails on a snowy day

5 ) My daughter made Ron and I Valentine’s Day cards. And stuck a dollar inside each card. She was quite proud of herself. It was too cute!

5 Things

1 ) #RunLove and Redefining What Strength Looks Like – Strength comes in all shapes and sizes. There is no one size fits all. We all have a strong inside of us. Sometimes it just takes longer to find it.

2 ) Dear Running: It’s Not You, It’s Me – A love letter to running? But of course. It makes us feel so good yet can make us feel so bad. I can’t quit you running!

3 ) Dig Deep – Now that I’m following a training plan again that has prescribed workouts and paces that scare the pants off me, I’m remembering what it’s like to dig deep. Laura said it well -> “Other runs, those runs that intimidate us, are designed to show us how strong we really are. These workouts require us to dig deep, but in return they reward with a boost in both fitness and, more importantly, confidence.”

4 ) I Pledge Allegiance to the Grind – Your first thought, given the title of this article, is that the subject is on the MTV dance show from the 90s. No? That was only me? 😉 I love the moral of the author’s story -> “And maybe you’ll also understand that the grind wasn’t just something you did to eventually get somewhere—but that the grind itself, and how you improved as a person during that time, was the important part.”

5 ) Clementine Vodka Sodas – See opening rant about snow days.

What would you like to High 5 today?

  1. I’m glad that you are excited about the snow. I’ll let you have ALLLLL of it! It is supposed to 60 deg here this weekend and I CANNOT WAIT! Have a great weekend of playing in the white stuff!

  2. I’m so over snow. We finally are getting some sunshine and warmer weather this weekend and I am thrilled. I know winter isn’t over yet, but it is a lovely treat these days. Driving in the snow is my least favorite!
