It's Friday Again!!!

It's F.R.I.D.A.Y.!!!!!!!

Here is what will be happening in my life this weekend!! You'll notice it is all non-running related because my knee still feels like A$$ and I don't think my 9 miler will actually happen.................but here goes!!

Family Birthdays will be celebrated on Sunday afternoon in Orlando! My mother's side of the family consist of 25 of us who all live within 1 hour of eachother and we celebrate the birthdays every month with a dinner. We are all so very close and I love my family dearly!! It is a great way for all of us to catch up each month and I just love being with family!!

R.I.C.E,   R.I.C.E, Baby.......The knee is still bothering me, even when I am not running, so I will take the weekend to continue to rest, ice and stretch and re-evaluate whether I need to see a doc next week....uggghh!!

In search of Halloween costumes this weekend with the boys! A few ideas that have been thrown around are Star Wars Characters ( of course), Transformers ( the newest craze), and my favorite...... Mario and Luigi ( a blast from our past). I think the boys would look so hilarious with little black mustaches!!!

Dreaming of running 9 miles while I sleep in on Saturday and Sunday......"Hello sleep, I haven't seen you in a while, I look forward to getting more of you this weekend than I have had in a long time...." I guess bum knees can be a blessing in disguise!! Haha!!

Another weekend at the soccer fields!! I volunteered my hubby to work the concession stand from 10:30 till 1:00PM ( have I told you how great my hubby is :0) ) and then my oldest son has a game at 3:30PM. I love to watch him play!! Only problem is that I get so anxious and can't sit down and I yell a lot ( in a motivational way, not a crazy, get this loony woman off the field way, ....I think???? ) !! My hubby always brings me a lawn chair and I NEVER sit in it........I pace!!! I don't really know why?  I really don't care if they win or lose, I just really get into the games!!!

Yay, Yay, Yay!!! I will be cheering on my coach/mentor Bryan who is trying to get a BQ in the Marine Corp Marathon this weekend!! I have him ready to track via phone and will checking the internet as well to see how he does!! Good luck to everyone else running MCM and all other races and long runs this weekend!! I will be cheering you on from the couch or the bed or whatever other surface I will be sitting on, as I will not be running......uggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!

Have a Fantastic Running (or non-running, if you are like me) Weekend!! You all are Fabulous!!!
BTW -thanks for all of the support and well wishes with this knee thing! Sorry I am such a whiner!!

Happy Running,


  1. ohh halloween costume shopping, yes I will be on that too. I think it's sooooo wonderful you are getting together with your family!

  2. You're not a whiner. You're just an insane runner person like the rest of us ...

    Aw, I really wanted to be creative this year with my costume, but alas, I gave in: pirate.
