5 Things Friday II

Howdy, friends!

I hope y'all don't mind if I do a 5 Things Friday every week! I'm way too busy to blog every day, and this way I'm able to do a little recap of my week!
So, here we go!

1. This cute, smooshy thing keeps me busy! Isn't he the cutest thing you've ever seen though??

2. I've been on a roasting kick lately. I am in LOVE with roasted cauliflower! I could seriously eat a whole head of the stuff! (Would that be bad for me??)

3. Look what I just ordered!! I have 4 (yes, 4) races this month, I might or might not wear them to every single race! :) I think I'm getting addicted to Pro Compression!
4. Marathon training is going well! My plan has me running 4 days a week. It looks like all week will be on the treadmill. Come on, Spring! I'm tired of snow and cold!!

5. This is what I'm doing tomorrow!!! Color me Rad.
It's supposed to be 35 and snowing, so our plans might change. Who wants to do a color run in the snow?? Not us! So, we might transfer to a different date. I did the Color Run last July and it was a blast! Definitely more fun in the warm weather!

Either way, tomorrow I'll be running 16 miles! Probably most of those on the treadmill!

Have you done a Color Run?
What are your plans for the weekend?

Don't forget to enter my Golden Island Jerky Giveaway!!


  1. I have never ran a color run yet, but there is one in ann arbor I may have to sign up for. Love roasting almost every veggie out there. I don't think I can go back to steaming them once you taste the roasted flavor!

    1. You should do it, Joe! They are a lot of fun! That's how I feel, I'll never steam them again!

  2. Hi,
    New follower from the blog hop please come follow me back :)

  3. Color Runs look like so much fun! Hope to get to do one this year.

  4. Hello Katie
    I'm a new follower from the Aloha hop. Your little one is adorable. I've got a 15 month old and I don't even get to go to the bathroom alone, so I understand how busy you can be. Your blog is awesome and I will visit often. I'd love it if you would visit me when you can and hopefully want to follow me back. I couldn't imagine running 5 k right now. The only running I'll be doing is if someone is chasing me wielding a big knife, even then it's iffy.

    1. Hi Angel! Welcome to my blog! :) The baby is a little boy I babysit. (I have a home daycare)I totally know what you mean about no being able to go to the bathroom alone!!
      I remember the day when I could barely run 1 mile! If I can do it, anyone can! I'll follow you too!

  5. That cauliflower has me drooling. YUM!! I want to do a color run SO bad!! Have fun!!

  6. Love 5 Thing Friday; do it every week!! :) I'm totally in love with Pro Compression (I just ordered some new compression sleeves yesterday) so I definitely think you need to rock those shamrocks at every race this month! Hope you have with Color Me Rad (if you ended up doing it today).

    1. Thanks, Gena, I think I will! We ended up not doing the Color me Rad. We transferred to July. It was just too cold and we would've been miserable!

  7. Hi Katie, he is the cutest thing ever :) I have never done a color run..sounds like lots of fun, I should go looking for one...

    1. Hi Tanvee! Yes, you should look for one. They are SO much fun!

  8. He is so cute! and I LOVE compression socks and pro compression. I am on my third pair... so addicting!
