Happy High Five Friday!
Again, thank you all so much for your kind words, not only on the full story of my DNF, but just for everything. You all are just too sweet for words.
I started posting again on Instagram this week. While my social media break was nice, I really did miss seeing everyone’s pics. Although I will admit I’m very, very jealous of those who post running pics. Sigh…I’ll be back soon enough.
1. Low tide on the river = endless fun of throwing rocks into the mud. At least for my kids.
2. Feel your strength. See your beauty. Muster your courage. Thank you Laura!
3. Stonyfield Frozen Yogurt – SO dangerous, especially when I’m glued to the couch, icing my ankle, while eating it with a spoon, straight from the carton. Let’s just say, it didn’t last long.
4. I’m back on the bike trainer! It felt so good to get my sweat on although it’s not nearly as cleansing as run. My foot is getting better every day. I’m hoping I’ll be totally out of the boot by the end of the weekend. I’m hoping to also get in the pool for some deep water running this weekend. I’ve never done it before. It sounds painfully boring, but if it’s the only running I can do right now, I’ll take it!
5. After what seems like weeks of being uninspired with dinner, I made a delicious (yet ugly) Mediterranean Cod. A bonus is that it was so quick and easy too.
1. Boston Smoocher Wants to Find Her Man – This is an incredibly cute story of a woman running Boston last week who, on a dare from her daughters, flipped the roles and kissed a random guy spectating in Wellesley. She never got his name or number, but wants to find him. Do you know the secret smoocher?
2. How We Tell Our Children They Aren’t Beautiful – A must read for any parent. Your biggest concern shouldn’t be what others are saying to your kids. YOU are the biggest influence.
3. Mile 8 – Not to be confused with Eminem and 8 Mile. Haha. We all have roadblocks in our life – physically and mentally. How do you handle it?
4. The London Marathon: A Dream Come True – I think everyone in the bloggy world knows Tina. How can you not? She’s an elite athlete that shares her running tips, delicious recipes and is just about the kindest, most genuine person. I am so unbelievably happy for Tina. She just killed this race. Reading the recap you can feel the joy in her words. Look out marathon – Tina kind of likes you now!
5. Tips for the Newbie Runners in the Summer – It eventually will be warm. At least that’s what I’m willing myself to believe. If you are new to running, read this so you’ll keep your cool all summer long. And full disclosure – it’s my latest article for RunHaven.
What would you like to high five today?
