High Five Friday

5 from instagram 41015 happyfitmama.comIt’s time to high five Friday!

1. Tapering for a marathon can mess with your head. And mine is messy. With so many people asking “Are you ready?”, I’m getting more nervous. Doubts are popping in and out, but I’m trying to remember all the hard work I’ve done. Strong – a word that I need to remember often.

2. The problem when your yoga studio is located next to Starbucks. My Gold Card status will never be in jeopardy as long as I go to yoga.

3. Subbing Stonyfield Greek yogurt for mayo in my favorite salad. YUM!

4. I have two little mice in my house. They nibble on freshly baked Chocolate Chip Banana Bread when no one is looking.

5. Over the weekend, Ron found these two snuggled up together with Mr. L reading to Cooper. SO cute!

5 Things

  1. Running Marathons Won’t Kill You – Remember the study from a few months ago that said running long distance will kill you sooner? Well a new, much larger, study was just released that proved it wrong. So my friends, continue to run far and prosper.
  2. The Most Inspiring Story You’ll Hear Today – If you ever have doubts that you can’t run, just remember those who have more obstacles than you. Rebekah lost a leg in the 2013 Boston bombing. She recently ran her first race since then. If you want inspiration, there you go.
  3. Your Guide to Running Boston Like a Pro – Amanda wrote a great article for Daily Burn that breaks down the whole course from the start, the middle miles, the infamous hills and the final stretch including right on Hereford, left on Boylston.
  4. 5 Ways to Get Your Children Interested in Yoga – I’m happy to announce that I have started writing for ACTIVEKids. It’s a fun place for parents to discover and register their kids for activities, classes, and camps in addition to active articles for the whole family. Check it out!
  5. Run Far Shop for Girls on the Run – Just a reminder that you can still order any Boston Blue & Yellow item till 4/20 and Sarah will donate 20% of every sale to Girls on the Run in the name of Team Stonyfield.

RunFarBostonBlueIn addition, you can still donate to my fundraising page for Girls on the Run. Any amount is greatly appreciated. Maybe $26.20 in honor of every mile?

  1. First, thank you for the shout out! Second, you are totally ready to tackle Patriot’s Day. I can’t wait for you to experience your first one–you’re gonna love it (stating the obvious!).

    I ordered from Sarah this week–can’t wait to get it.

  2. I think the worst part of taper was having everyone ask if I was ready or telling me how great I’d do. It’s like it started to add massive amounts of pressure. One of my running buddies will be there so I’ll be glued to the results being posted and cheering you on virtually!

  3. 10 more days!! I’m getting more anxious the more I read the course reviews. They are great so I know what to expect, but lacking hills here in Ohio has me wondering if I will make it out of there alive!! Yesterday I was wondering if “Meb for Mortals” would help me at this point. I could read it all before I leave next week LOL
    Iced coffee is my favorite treat after a run.
