Happy High Five Friday!

Not sure what I’m talking about? Find all the details HERE!

5 From Instagram – Are you following me? Please do!

1. I’m a master pumpkin carver. Actually that’s a lie. Ron is. I don’t have the patience for intricate details in pumpkin. Give me a few triangles and a square mouth and I’m good.

2. I’ll say it again – It feels so good to be back to running!

3. Mid afternoon chocolate craving crushed. And my bones are stronger for it with Adora Calcium. I like to take pack an organic Dark and Milk Chocolate disk in my lunchbag at work. That way I’ll have a sweet afternoon treat waiting for me. And I won’t have to think about raiding the vending machines. Adora Calcium is made from Rainforest Alliance Certifiedβ„’ cocoa. And now it has even more vitamin D3 for enhanced absorption, two of the chocolate disks provide 100% of the daily recommended value of calcium. That’s a win in my book!

4. First time attempting side crow pose for the #RunnersLoveYogaBalance Instagram challenge. I kind of dig it. Although there’s no way my legs were going to straighten!

5. When your lunch matches the ground outside, you must share it on Instagram.

5 Things

1. The First Person to Run a Marathon Without Talking About It – I’m sure everyone has seen this, but it’s too funny not to share. “She had something I’ve never seen in a marathoner – modesty.” hahaha!

2. Positively Awesome – Motivational posters, quotes on social media like Pinterest, Facebook or Instagram – this is how it should be.

3. My Kid Can’t Eat This – The Ridiculousness of Toddlers – For all the parents out there. You will laugh. You will cry. You will know you are not alone. The struggle is real.

4. The Ultimate Starting Line – Love this honest post from professional runner, Steph Bruce. So much of it hit home with me. “We all have a little dust that needs to be brushed off whether coming back from an injury, pregnancy, or just a mental hiatus from running. How do we do it? We remain relentless in our pursuit of goals no matter the obstacles.”

5. Mile Markers: New Normal – Six months off from running is a long time. It’s like I’m a newbie runner all over again. How did running 3 miles become tiring? As usual, Kristin says the right thing, at just the right time.

  1. HIGH FIVE TO THE NYC MARATHON baby!!!!
    I’m so happy to see you back out there running around. It is truly awesome!
    I also can’t wait to read about feeding kids. The struggle is real indeed!!
    And of course, those pumpkins are amazing. I’m with you when it comes to carving – simple face and done. The best part is roasting the seeds, right?

  2. I’m just turning away from that fabulous pumpkin carving b/c I am such a fail at it! But the process is fun nonetheless.

    So happy to see you running and how great that you get to enjoy it in the fall!
