The Friday Five

1.  Create a vision…Check this one off the list!

My alarm is proof that I love to wake up and run!

2.  During a super hot Cumberland Plateau Stage Race, we were discussing the impact not only of humidity, but of Dew Point.  My coach, Mark Hadley from Maximum Performance Running, wrote a great blog on how we should adjust our paces for the Dew Point.  Check it out, here!



3.   Nail Polish that doubles as a test for date rape drugs…pretty freakin’ cool!


4.  My incredible friend, Corrie donated her beautiful long hair yesterday.  Someone will be so blessed by her selflessness.  She ROCKS!!!


5.  Not only did I come home from my run to a sweet note, but this one is proof that my husband actually reads my blog!  I did, however, wonder what or who his other 4 are…


PS. I have some granola baking in the oven that smells incredible. I can’t wait to share the recipe…stay tuned!!!

I hope you all have an incredible Labor Day weekend!

Are you racing this weekend? Travel? Cookouts?

    You are too sweet! :) You are one of my Friday favorite fives too! And I wouldn’t worry. ..I think Mr.’s other four include the Whole Foods Blondies, the pups, and Mr Kenny Rogers 😉

    I love the alarms; I’m glad I’m not the only one that sets 10 different ones!

    No racing for me. Just a long run and lots of relaxing! Have a great weekend!

    I’m a morning person too! Love the alarm settings :-) No running for me as I’m still on the injured list, however it’s my adorable nephew’s third birthday so I will console myself with lots of hugs from the cutest kid on the planet. Yes, I’m totally biased. Happy weekend to all!

    Jennifer, I think we’ll be cooking out and watching football! No travel or racing this weekend, but I’m definitely looking forward to some downtime and lots of reading. :) I hope you have a great weekend! Looking up your quinoa enchilada bake recipe right now, before I go grocery shopping. 😉
