5 Things Friday

Happy Friday!
 I'm linking up with Clare, for today's 5 things.

1. I am back in my running groove! I was only out of it for a week, but I think the break did my mind and body some good. I've ran 3 days this week, I'll be running again today, and tomorrow will be my long run. My plan is to do 30 miles. It's going to be 57 and sunny. A perfect day to run for hours and hours and hours!

2. A much needed girls night happened last night. There's nothing like talking and laughing with sweet friends over margarita's and Mexican!

3. I felt like jammin this week. Strawberry jam! I used to make and sell about 15 flavors of jams (to raise funds for our adoption that never happened). I still love doing it, but now I just give them away.
4. My momma. She is so amazing. Although I usually see her once a week, we don't often get a chance to talk alone, so she came to see me yesterday, bringing gifts. Coffee. Yes.
 She has always been my biggest supporter, and she still is. You know when your mom tells you everything is gonna be ok, you just have to believe her. She cries with me and gives the best advice ever. I adore her. I hope to someday have my own child and be just as wonderful to her as my Mom is to me. ♥
This is 7 years old, but it's the only one I have of us together!
5. Well... I guess this should be 4 things Friday, because that's all I got!

Your turn! Tell me something random.
What are your plans this weekend?

  3. 30 miles? My legs hurt thinking about it.
    Random: I'm so excited for the warmer weather... & waiting for more bursts of cold. I don't trust Spring.

      Lol, I feel the same way. Spring has tricked us too many times, I don't trust it anymore either!!

    1. Thanks Louisa! When I first started spin classes, I had that feeling all the time!! Not fun. Why would anyone drink warm water with lemon?? Ew.
      I know a lot of mom's who aren't ready for that either.
      That reminds me, I need to do some push ups, it's been forever. I don't know if I could even do 1 anymore! Lol!

  14. 30 miles! Wow! I only managed 6 yesterday, but the weather was so gorgeous that if I hadn't had to get home by a certain time, I'm sure I would have kept going for another hour. I hope Spring is here full-time soon!!
