Fun For Friday - 5 Things to Smile About

Well Thursday totally got away from me. I had meant to do a post about dark-thirty safety, but I'll do that next week. It's Friday and I like to keep Friday light when possible. I mean, most of us are brain-drained am I right?

Friday can also be a good time to look back on the week, especially on the things that made you smile. Here are 5 things (for Friday of course) that made me smile this week:

1. Unplanned 10-Mile Run

On Sunday, I set out on a run with very low expectations. However, I finally got out of my head and 10-miles later I was in a much better place (and I don't mean sitting at home with my rear on the couch).

2. Quiet Cool Evening

I guess this is technically last week, but it's been nice having cooler temps in the evenings finally. Saturday evening I was home alone, well, except for the crazy maniacs (AKA Maddie and Heath). I loved being able to pull on my fuzzy socks and prop my feet up.


5. Email from Friend

You ever have those days when someone emails you at just the right time? Or maybe it's a call or a text, either way, it kind of makes your day. It's nice feeling like someone is thinking about you, cares about you, misses your company. Thanks Jess!

4. Healthy Bites

I recently won Lindsay's contest for some Healthy Bites and they arrived Thursday. Seriously, the girl is a genius with flavor combinations. I received Pumpkin White Chocolate Coconut Butter and Strawberry Vanilla. One word: YUM


5. Midday Run with Jason

Jason and I don't run together very often any longer. He has dealt with his own running injuries and just sort of got into a running funk. He also doesn't like getting up and running in the early hours. So, it's a rare treat to run together. AND it's been way too hot to run midday anyway. But Wednesday the temps finally felt more like fall, so we headed out for a lunchtime run. Even though the wind was gusting, it was a nice run together.

What's something from this week that's made you smile?

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.












Words of Wisdom

After talking about being stressed yesterday, I thought I would take today to re-read and share some quotes that I find inspiring and energizing. I don't often post a lot of quotes, but sometimes, they really can help change your perspective or give you a new outlook on things.

Are you a quote person? I'd love to hear your favorite quote.





And I can't forget Way to Go Wednesday. Here are my shout outs for the week. Who do you want to give a shout out to?

Kat from Sneakers and Fingerpaints just passed her NASM exam.

Lisa's (RunWiki) husband completed a 27 mile endurance swim.

Carla (aka MizFit) gave away her Strength (A must-read post)

Mrs. StuftMama herself is back to running - slowly but surely after a run-stopping injury.
