Wow, what a fun/crazy seven days I’ve had! Since last Friday, I’ve been a busy bee. Hope you all had a great week…here’s my (very random) Friday Five:
- One of my very best friend’s got married on Saturday. It literally hit me at the reception that we’ve been talking / planning / gchatting about our wedding days for over 6 years. And now, it’s official. I was overcome by emotion and just so stinking happy for her and her now husband. It was extra special because I was there the night they met and really just have had the most amazing opportunity to watch their relationship develop and grow. Oh and now I’m crying again. Yay.
- As y’all know, though…before I could celebrate Tiff and Scott, I had to run 20 miles. I’m not gonna rehash that blog post, but I just want to say that I’m still basking in the glow of that run. Still can’t believe I actually did it.
- Tourist time. While in San Fran, my absolute favorite experience was being a total tourist and traveling (via cable car of course!) to the Fisherman’s Wharf. I loved being right on the water, the views of Alcatraz and the Golden Gate Bridge and all the fun shops. Sometimes I try to avoid touristy things because it can feel so cheesy. But I have to say I’m really really glad I spent an afternoon being a San Fran tourist. Such a cool place.
- The medical director for the Richmond Marathon sent all participants an email this week encouraging us to up our salt intake over the next couple of weeks before the marathon. He had this to say: “There are two reasons why he recommends that marathoners do this. First, you will increase your water pool during the days leading up to the event so you will be less dehydrated on race day. And second, you will decrease the potential of developing hyponatremia during the event. Hyponatremia is a sodium imbalance brought on by excess fluid consumption and in rare cases has led to death for marathoners.” I love salty food, so I don’t think I’ll have any trouble on this front!
- On Sunday, mere hours after I get back to DC from the West Coast, I am running the Race to End Women’s Cancer. I’m running this race in honor of my dear friend who has beat cancer. That in and of itself is enough for it to be amazing, but…we are wearing TUTUS! It’s kinda gonna be epic. Don’t worry – I’ll definitely post some pics 🙂
Don’t forget to link up your Friday Five post! What are you up to this weekend?
