Happy High Five Friday!

Today’s an extra special celebratory Friday – Ron and I are celebrating 16 years of marriage.

Look at those little babies!!!!

I think I’ve shared this photo every single year since I’ve had a blog.  Sixteen years ago, digital photos didn’t exist.  All I have are the real deal photos.  We put disposable cameras on every table at the reception if that gives you any idea how long ago 16 years was.  Do they even make those things anymore?

Babysitter is booked for tonight and we are heading out for a rip roaring night.  And when I say rip roaring, I mean we’ll be home by 10.  Hahaha

So let’s get crackin’ on what I’ve been reading and loving lately.

The Missing Link in Your Training

You run. You strength train. You cross train.  How’s your mobility?  There’s a difference between flexibility and mobility.  You need both to help you stay injury free. Here’s 8 sample mobility exercises for the whole body.

Birkenstocks I know some think Birks are the ugliest things around.  I did too until I got my first pair and fell in love with how comfy they are. They seriously are the most comfortable sandals that I own.  Here I am 16 years later, still wearing them. If there’s one thing I’ve learned in my 40 years is that don’t wear uncomfortable shoes.  It’s not worth it! And bonus points that my newest pair make me look like I’m a mermaid. 🙂

Ode to Legs: A Poem By Lauren Fleshman

She’s got legs. She knows how to use them. Besides the ZZ Top song, who else remembers the 80s commercial for L’eggs Sheer Energy pantyhose?  Am I the only one who thought of the commercial before the song?  Lol! Love this poem so much.

All the Weird Ways Running Affects Your Body

All the questions about your body and running answered.  Well, maybe not ALL but a lot of common questions that you may not know the answer to.

Polar Summer Seltzer Flavors – It’s hard to believe that a couple of years ago I thought seltzer was disgusting.  Now, I’m addicted.  And when Hannaford has the new Polar summer flavors on sale, you better believe I stock up.  Don’t worry, this isn’t my idea of stocking up.  I went back for 10 more the next day.  And the day after.  #ObsessedMuch?

In ‘Play On’, Exploring How Elite Athletes Improve With Age

How do some athletes keep playing strong at an age the majority are retiring from their chosen sport? Genetics obviously play a huge part but there has to be something more.  I think I need to read this whole book.

  1. I LOOOVE MY BIRKS. I’m with you. Fashion over comfort but thankfully these days people think they are fashion too 🙂

  2. First of all – congratulations on 16 years – wow!!! That is no small accomplishment! And I totally remember when weddings used disposable cameras as part of the fun – LOL!!!
    I feel exactly the same way about seltzer! I hated it and now, as I type this, have four bottles in my fridge. I currently love Raspberry Rose and Mango Melon! Adding on vodka on Fridays is also not unheard of.
    Have a great time celebrating!!

  3. Congrats on the many years you’ll have had together, and here’s to many more!

    Birkies are awesome, although not a lot of men are into them. I’m a closet owner (lol). Just don’t tell anyone! 😉

  4. happy Anniversary! That is like all of the Kardashian marriages combined. I miss those little clicky cameras. Destroying the world one photo at a time 😀 Remember the waterproof ones?
    Mobility is so important, and so is proprioception. They are often forgotten!

  5. Happy Anniversary! I like your tips and ideas. Especially I like your mobility and flexibility tips. This is a very good tip you have shared. Really this is a need to help injury free. I am very happy to read your blog post. You have shared an important information. I like it. Thanks for share.
