Friday Favorites

Happy Friday!

Yesterday I was supposed to run 8 miles.  However, after putting it off for most of the day, when I finally buckled down to run, I could barely squeeze 3 miles out of my legs.  I tried every mind trick I could think of, but 3 miles was all I had in me yesterday.  

Hmph.  

I figured if I share my running successes with you I should share my running disappointments too, ya know?  I do plan to get back on the horse and put in those 8 miles today.  Hopefully.

Ok, how about something more peppy - like some Friday favorites?

This video of this guy eating all kinds of dessert while working out at the gym. I laughed so hard I cried.

 
Does anyone else think that is as funny as I did?
 
 

Pumpkin run

 
Is there anything more fun than running through corn fields with pumpkins?  This 5K race is hosted at my favorite pumpkin patch, which is just a few miles away from my house.  (We went there when I was pregnant with Ina).   The Great Pumpkin Run was kind enough to give all Running with Racheal readers $5 off race entry fees using the code RWRKC5 at checkout.  Sign up early (before June) to get the cheapest price.  I will be there and I would love for you to join me!
 
-  Live a Big Life Ride -  two girls who are biking across the country for a good cause.
 

 

So impressive.  I can barely bike 10 miles without throwing a fit.  They are putting in 60 to 100 miles a day.  Wowza.  You better believe I am stalking them on Instagram now.  

 
- Tips for Prep Day.  I adore Kath and she has now inspired me to have a “prep day” on Sunday.  The only problem is that I will be MIA the next 3 Sundays, but after that you better watch out.  
 
- Enough.  <- Obligatory mom-hood struggles / happiness post
 
- My Misto.  If you don’t know, this is a pump spray bottle that you can pour your own oil into and it sprays it out. No more creepy Pam spray bottles with questionable ingredients for this girl.  Bonus - it is Ina’s favorite thing to play with in the kitchen.  It easily keeps her entertained for 5 minutes, which is a God-send in cooking-dinner-with-a-toddler world.
 
I think that is all I have for you today.  This weekend is going to be awesome - my niece Hallaway’s birthday party is tonight, and from there we pack up and drive to Arkansas for a little service project.  
 
I hope your weekend is incredibly blessed.  <3

YAY! So glad you love your misto. I use mine every single day. And that's definitely a bonus that it keeps cute Ina entertained for a bit. Sounds like you have a great weekend ahead! <3
