I’ll see your Three Things Thursday, and raise you Five Things Friday. See what I did there? I just have some odds and ends to discuss before the weekend. Hence the post. And also, I haven’t mentioned it lately, but, I love a list!
1. Irongirl 5K. I’m racing the Irongirl 5K again this year and hope to at least do better than last year. I raced it when I was just coming off of a six week running hiatus and it was rough. The 5K course is an out and back with a big, nasty bridge slapped right in the middle. Fortunately, this is my bridge and I know it well. I’m coming for redemption Irongirl.
2. R Kelly. You know that R Kelly song where he’s all, “My mind is telling me no, but my body, my body’s telling me yes!” Well, I was having the exact opposite yesterday. I got to swim, my mind said, “Yes.” My body said, “Oh hell no.” And this repeated again for my run last night. Sigh. I listened to my body and ignored R Kelly and slept in this morning. I will evaluate this week to see why I’m so pooped. I hope this isn’t a sign of things to come.

I would die if he was actually in there.


3. New shoes. I finally got a new pair of running shoes and took a departure from the Brooks Ravennas I had been running in for the past year. I decided on the Saucony Guide 7’s. So far, so good.
Don’t worry, it comes with two.
 4. Race well wishing! There are gobs of races this weekend. There are serveral half ironman races, triathlons, and quite a few 5K’s and 10K’s. Best of luck to everyone getting out there! Big shout out to my buddy Hope doing her first ever tri!

5. Game of Thrones. Now that True Detective is off for the season, I’m thrilled to have GoT back. I finally caught up on all seasons and can’t wait to keep watching this new season. Here are my fave meme’s from season’s past.

Happy Friday friends!
