5 Things Friday!

Happy Happy Friday!

 I hope y'all have had a fabulous week with lots of running and ice cream! Oh wait...that would be my week. ;)
Here's a few other things that have filled my week!

1. I signed up for the Women's Half Marathon, in September, in Nashville! This was my first half last year, and I absolutely loved it! When I got an email saying they were offering $20 off registration for National Running Day, there was no way I could not sign up! I'm SO excited to run this again!
2. I had heard a lot about this book, and finally got it. I've been devouring it. Yes, I'm going to sign up for an Ultra, soon and very soon! Thanks a lot, Scott! (Although I knew it would happen)
3. I am ending week 1 of Chicago Marathon training! It's been great. I just can't tell you how much I love training again! This week was a 4 mile run Mon, Wed and Fri. And then 8 miles tomorrow (Saturday).
This was my run for National Running Day.
4. Tonight I'm going on a hot date with this chick.
Hmmm...should I go blonde again?
We're going to the River City Winery, wine tasting, live music...perfect way to relax and unwind.

5. And last, but not least... tomorrow is the 5k race I've been talking about FOREVER, letting you know that I will finally get a sub 30. I will, I will, I will. 
 I have been working SO hard for this, and I really believe I can do it. I know some people don't put their goals out there, just in case it doesn't happen, but I have to. 

Tell me something good! Anything at all!

  4. You're going to do AMAZING at your 5K! I'm so proud of you already! Just remember to start off a little slow and finish fast! Pace yourself! I'll be cheering you on and think of you when I hit the 3.1 mark during my half tomorrow! And something good to tell, my husband is going to watch me run tomorrow! He hasn't been able to with races being so early and him watching our daughters, but we found an overnight sitter to watch the girls so that he can travel with me and watch me run tomorrow! I'm so stinking nervous for him to watch me! How random! LOL!

  8. Good Luck tomorrow!! You can do it!! It gets tough during 5Ks but it's over with fast. Can't wait to read your report!!
    I'm pacing for a huge 10K tomorrow so that means that I will be running slower than I would if I was racing. I will be running the recommended long run pace for my marathon training so I guess it's my first long run for Chicago!!
