Happy High Five Friday!
5 from Instagram – I share more pics on Instagram and Instagram Stories. Are you following me? Please do!
1 ) Fall in New Hampshire – nothing better!
2 ) The waiting is the hardest part. I finally got back on the Alter G at PT this week and have been itching to get back to running outside. Maybe a short jaunt will happen over the weekend?
3 ) My brown dog. Sometimes he’s a good boy and sits on command. Sometimes he gets into the garbage and eats a moldy container of hummus and numerous yogurt tubes and then has massive diarrhea. Dog ownership is so glamorous. *insert eye roll *
4 ) And then there’s my show off husband who likes to pop up into headstand while hiking to be a smart ass when I ask him to take a yoga picture. *insert eye roll *
5 ) My two hiking monkey’s. Thankfully I always pack TONS of snacks for hikes. If you think you have enough, pack more. There’s never enough snacks when it comes to kids and hiking. *insert eye roll *
5 Good Reads
1 ) What Half Marathons Teach Us About Running a Marathon – Of course running a marathon will deplete you more than a half marathon. But I love the take away from this study. Can you guess what it is? Strength training is the way to go. Are you strength training at least a couple of times a week? If not, you should be!
2 ) So Long, Meb! – It’s hard to believe that this guy is running his last marathon soon. He’s such a likable guy who has had an amazing running career. I remember watching him win Boston in 2014 and having all the feels.
3 ) 25 Tweets About Married Life That Are Hilariously Accurate – After being married for 15 years, I can say that most of these are in fact, very accurate. Ahhh, married life. 🙂
4 ) Speedy Mom Smashes World Record for a Marathon with a Stroller – I bow down. Seriously. A 3:10 marathon pushing a stroller. That’s insane. But the interesting thing? She hasn’t been injured once since she started running with a stroller. Maybe I need to get back to that? Ummmm…no.
5 ) 82 Year Old Broke the Appalachian Trail Age Record – Age is nothing but a number. When you start believing “I’m too old” that’s when things start to fail. Love this guys drive to never stop doing what he loves.
