I’m so happy it’s Friday!
I thought today I’d go in the “things I’m loving Friday” direction.
My running group
This one is a bit of a surprise, but after last night’s run, i’m really really digging it!
I didn’t think I’d enjoy running with others so much. But as someone else mentioned, especially in the winter, when it’s so easy to be lazy, it’s nice to be accountable. The run last night was 4 miles (3 tempo) and it was dark and at times hard to navigate. Knowing that others were around made a huge difference! We’re the middle group and last night I think there were about 4 or 5 of us running and 2 coaches/pacers. A great size! Everyone is also really nice! I’m just really happy to be a part of it!
My glowing gear
Related to the first item, I finally got to use all my light up stuff yesterday and it was awesome. I was also told that I was easy to see and follow, which is the point. I might have a new shopping addiction on my hands…light up stuff!
The slightly longer days
The fact that it is no longer pitch black at 5pm is thrilling to me. Progress!
These were my go to when I was teaching a 6a and a 9:30a class. As I’ve written before, eating and working out don’t go together for me. One of the only things I was able to eat between classes was a Lara bar. I’ve since rekindled my love for them.
A few of my favorites:
I hate to love it, but without it I wouldn’t be sleeping at all. Last night I had to take it three times throughout the night. Not a good thing, but without it, it would have been so much worse!
Picture it on Canvas
I’m borderline obsessed with having photos printed on canvas. This is my go-to site. They’re always having sales, and this last time I bought a Groupon and got two 16×20 canvases for less than $50 (with shipping).
The picture on the left is my two newest canvas purchases (yes, they’re very similar) and the picture on the right is my office wall. Almost all of them are canvases. And yes, that’s a super bowl pool in the bottom left. 🙂
I’m sure there are others, but this is all I’m coming up with right now.
In other good news, I am officially registered for the BAA 5K. Hooray! Anyone else doing it?
Have a nice Friday and a great weekend! I’ve got 8 miles tomorrow and I’m scared!
