5 Friday Favorites

Happy Friday!

I'm joining up with Fitness Friday at Jill Conyers.com and am jumping on the "Friday 5" bandwagon. Her post was full of so many random fun things, I just couldn't help myself.

Thanks, Jill, for this awesomely random Friday idea!

5 Running-Related Things

  1. Training starts for the Bemidji Blue Ox Half Marathon next week!
  2. I'm setting race goals similar to my Fargo Half Marathon goals from this spring: A-Goal, B-Goal, and P-Goal (P = preggo). If we aren't expecting, I am shooting to break 1:30.
  3. Dailymile.com is my favorite online training resource! It tracks my weekly mileage and keeps runners (and walkers, cyclists, etc.) in touch with each other.
  4. Strength training workouts from CTolleRun.com are awesome. Carrie has awesome training tips and workout videos all online and free.
  5. Rollerblading with the jogging stroller has grown to be my favorite cardio crosstraining!

5 Picture Stories


Homemade Buns. Why is it that buns taste better than loaf bread? This was my first go at making homemade buns!


Summer Tan Lines. We have had a busy summer outside - lots of jogging stroller miles, trips down the slide, and time spent swinging. I love E's sandal tan :)


Potato Pancakes. So tasty, so easy. 3 cups mashed potatoes + 1 egg + 1/2 cup flour + handful of cheese >>> fry until browned and EAT!.


Throwback. We are enjoying the county fair with Grandma and Grandpa E. I had to place these photos side-by-side: My mom and me in 1988 and, 26 years later, E and me!


Horsing Around. I miss my horses! I had the chance to lunge my old show horse, "Lexi" last weekend. I'm so excited for E to ride horse for the first time :)



5 Awesome Running Songs

  1. Go Hard by Lecrae
  2. Mark My Words by P.O.D
  3. The Harvester by Brandon Heath
  4. Movements by Rend Collective
  5. Breathe Into Me by Red

  2. I'm loving the 5 things posts! And even more I love the CS Lewis quote. I have the worst runners tan ever. The tan lines on my legs are laughable :)
