5 Things Friday

  1. I won some Tommie Copper calf compression sleeves from Christy @ My Dirt Road Anthem! It’s kind of crazy because I was recently sent a free pair of hot pink CEP Running Compression Socks to try out (my review of them will be coming soon!), and I loved them so much that I ordered a pair of the CEP Allsports Compression Sleeves in black. And what do you know, I won Christy’s giveaway the day after I received my CEP sleeves in the mail. I guess you can never have too much running gear, right?

  2. This week went by fast. I feel like my life is so busy and as a result the time flies by. I’m definitely not complaining that the weekend is here, because I’m very thankful for that. And I'm also not complaining about anything in my life that I'm doing - I'm thankful for my job and I'm thankful that I'm able to train for a marathon. But after working all day, going running, fixing dinner, etc., I have about one to two hours before it's time to go to bed! I just wish I had a little more time in my day for other things (sleeping, reading, sitting down with my husband, blogging, etc.). But with that said, if I had 6 more hours in my day I’d probably find a way to fill them up too so maybe it's a good thing that I only have 24 hours in the day because 30 hour days sound exhausting.

  3. I’m running 15 miles tomorrow. 15. miles. That’s the longest I’ve EVER run. I’m nervous, but I think we’ll be okay. One mile at a time, right?

  4. I’m excited for this weekend. My in-laws are coming in town and we have lots of fun things planned for Saturday and Sunday. AND I get the day off on Monday. Yay!

  5. If you still don’t own a Road ID (WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?! read my previous review of the Road ID Slim HERE), here’s a coupon for $1 off your order:


    It can be used up to 20 times until September 30, 2011. If something happened to you, would a first responder or passerby be able to contact your family, know that you’re allergic to something, or know that you have a medical condition?
I hope everyone has a fun and safe holiday weekend!


  1. I can't wait to read your review of the Compression socks and congrats!!!!
