Fun for Friday - Running and a Knock-Knock Joke

TGIF everyone! Don't know about you guys, but I am definitely looking forward to the is long weekend. I have plans to be both very productive, but also very lazy at the same time. My pool is calling to me ;-)

This morning Jason and I woke up dark and early for a run. He's been running about 1.5 miles with me then he will finish up his prescribed miles on his own. Yep, I've got him on an official training plan. In fact, I think I heard him uttering curse words at and about me on our bike ride yesterday evening. Something about lunges and quads.

When Jason and I split, I met up with Amy. Her plan was 5 miles, my plan was 6-8 leaning heavily towards the 8. But my legs were crazy heavy at first, so I thought it may end up 6 after all. It was hot and really humid. Summer has returned to us once again.

But, we fell into conversation and a good pace and my legs loosened up. In the end, she got in 7 miles and I finished out at 9. So much for 5 and 6-ish huh? So that was my TGIF Run - similar to the Friday Happy Dance in enthusiasm.

Since it is Friday, that means Fun for Friday. This week's post is inspired by a tweet from last week. Last Friday I had tweeted about Laura's #strangebutgood Jicama and Tofu Nachos. You really must check out her recipes by the way.


It had been a long week, my mind was moving slow and it took me a minute (or two) to get the joke. I said as much, and she said that it was her favorite one. 

So, that got me to thinking about jokes, my favorite jokes, but knock-knock jokes to be more specific. I don't tend to remember one-liners and jokes. They just don't stick with me. But when I was a kid, my dad and bought my sister and me a book of knock-knock jokes. 

To this day, I still remember dad telling this one over and over, and us giggling every time:

Knock Knock.
Who's There?
Anastasia.
Anastasia Who?
Anastasia wagon got fo doors.

Do you remember jokes and one-liners? What about favorite knock-knock joke?

Plantar Fasciitis Woes & Way to Go Wednesday Shout Outs

I wanted to thank everyone again for your many congratulations on completing and getting a PR at my recent half marathon. The support and words mean so much to me.

My legs feel absolutely fine after the race. I could have run yesterday if it weren't for my left foot. So right now I'm trying to heal my left foot. I mentioned that I've been having problems with plantar fasciitis in that foot and that it was the cause of much pain during the race. Since the race, I've been unable to walk on it very well. Lots of hobbling going on.

I've been icing it and trying to keep it elevated. But, I noticed that it's started to get some bruising, not horrible, but worrisome. Not sure if it's better or worse for it to be discolored vs red and swollen. However, this could be indicitive of a tear.
But, my bigger concern with the bruising is that indication that there's been bleeding. Being on Xarelto for the blood clot means my blood doesn't clot very well these days…

PJs n Pizza Recap

What Happened Last Night?
This morning I woke up first at 6:20 when Maddie decided she wanted out of her kennel and to be downstairs. The second time was 8:09 when Heath decided he wanted out of his kennel and downstairs to eat. I won't like, I would like to (needed to) have slept another two hours. It was a little slow going after last night.

Sign of a good party would be my first tweet of the day:  I'm thinking there is a bird in the house...what the hell happened last night???

Yep, found bird poop where bird poop most definitely should not be. Still have not found said bird however.

It should go without saying that last night was a total blast. It was so fun having everyone just be relaxed and comfy in jammies. I am not known for letting loose often, but I definitely went with it last night. There was a bit (lot) of wine consumed, pizza devoured and even some dancing.












Let's Have Coffee

If you're a regular blog reader, I'm sure you've seen similar posts, scenarios if you will, about what we might chat about or what I might say if we sat down and had coffee together.

I think these can be fun. Maybe fun isn't the right word choice exactly. But maybe it is? They're transparent, showing who the blogger really is ... if they're being honest of course. It's not often you truly get to sit down with the person behind the blog.


If we were to have coffee together ...

I would first let you know that I'm not a super fan of coffee. I drink mine with hot cocoa and it's mostly out of habit rather than the need for caffeine. I could forgo it on the weekends entirely.

Since we're talking coffee, I would also let you know that I've never ordered coffee from Starbucks and only once from a true coffee shop. I've only been into 2 Starbucks shops - the original in Seattle and one in town where I ordered a bottle of tea when meeting a friend. …
