5 (very random) Things Friday

Happy Friday!!

  Here's a few happenings from my week!

1. I can't believe tomorrow will be a week since my marathon!! By Tuesday morning all of my soreness was gone, and I felt like I could've ran another marathon! Instead I just went to a spin class. :)
 Tomorrow is the Derby Festival Marathon, right here in my town. (Well, real close anyway)
 I SO badly want to run it!! If I didn't already have plans, I probably would. Just cuz I'm crazy like that!



2. Last night my honey and I took our youth group to an Audio Adrenalin and Group 1 Crew Concert. Some of you might know DC Talk, they were one of my fave Christian bands in the 90's. Well, Kevin Max left DC Talk, and became lead singer for AA. So during one of the last songs, Kevin was walking through the crowd as he was singing, and started coming down my row (I was on the aisle). I stuck out my hand, thinking he would high five me or something, but NO- he stopped, grabbed my hand and put his arm around me for awhile!! Ok, it was probably 10 seconds, but let's just pretend it was 10 minutes, ok?
 I just acted all calm and cool, but the inner Katie was doing cartwheels and squeeling like one of those annoying Beiber fans! Haha! I might have screamed and jumped up and down once we got outside and I was telling the youth EXACTLY what happened again! I don't know why they think I'm a little cray cray...
1. Here he is!!
2. She's jelly that he loves me.

3.Why do I have a big bubble covering my body? Because I look like a cow next to these skinny teenagers. Yes, I still have body issues.




 3. I've been on a winning streak lately!
1. Loreal/Redbook House Party
2. Collagen Sport Protein Powder from Kat
3. $50 Gift Card from Gigi




4. My sweet Charley boy is alive and well. Last week one of my boy's accidentally stepped on his foot. He's so tiny, that it's very easy to not see him right behind you. I thought he was going to die; he was just laying there, obviously in pain. :( Honey took him to the animal hospital, and $200 later they said he just had a smashed foot. He limped around for a couple days, and is now back to his perky, happy self!

5. My marathon photos came in, out of about 10, this was the only decent looking one! I think this was at mile 26.4, almost to the finish line. It looks like I have nothing left to give!

 
 What are your plans for the weekend?
 My boys will be at their Mother's, so we'll get a nice, quiet weekend. I'm planning on going for a run! It's been a week, and I miss it!!
