High Five Friday

Happy Halloween and High Five Friday!

And the last day of October! What???

5 from instagram 103114  happyfitmama.comI always share way more pictures on Instagram. Are you following me?

1. Fall splendor. Oh how I’ve missed taking self timer running pics! I had to get at least one even if I ran less than 2 miles last Saturday.

2. This is me dressing up for Halloween. The kitty stuffie was an addition when my daughter didn’t want to hold it anymore.

3. This week has been all about running progress. It’s slow. I’m not 100% pain free but I’m getting there.

4. Pumpkin Spice Granola Bars – Make these today!

5. Hiking fun from last weekend.

5 Things

1. 5 Quick Strength Training Exercises for Runners – Love the Fire Hydrant and Bridge.

2. NYC Marathon State of Mind – Fun facts for this weekend’s big race. 6400 bananas. Over 50,000 runner’s finished last year’s race. WHOA!

3. What a Real Runner Looks Like? Serious high 5’s to Hannah for calling out all the people who think it’s no big deal to judge others through social media (or real life). It’s real life people with real life feelings.

4. What’s Wrong with this Picture? For most of us ladies, we are accustomed to being in the majority when it comes to running races. 61% of half marathon participants were women last year after all. But in 1989, not so much. We’ve come a long way ladies!

5. Day in the Life of Another Mother Runner – It was so fun taking over the Another Mother Runner’s Instagram account last weekend. If you missed it, the ladies did a great recap.

What would you like to high 5 today?

Anyone running NYCM?

  1. Yay! Glad your running is moving in the right direction ๐Ÿ™‚ It will keep coming! We have come a long way, but we still only make up 27% of participants overall, we need to keep it going! I would like to Hi-5 my fiance, he has his conference championships this weekend for his team, and he’s done so well to get them ready!

  2. I wasn’t following you before but I am now! That’s a great running shot. I really need to take one of those ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Fire hydrants are one of my favourite exercises to warm up with, and I often give them to my clients as well. They really help you find out where the tight spots are!

  3. My biggest pet peeve with races nowadays is that so many races still don’t offer women’s shirts! Especially half marathons, where like you said >60% of participants are women. Come on man! (we’ve been watching a lot of football at our house, sorry…)
