Friday Favorites

Happy, happy Friday!!

I'm definitely ready for another vacation, I have a one week vacation the week after the Cleveland Marathon so that will be nice. Then, I work four days and am off the entire month of June, perks of being a 10-month employee.

Now to get ready for the weekend, here are some of my current favorite things!

New Shoes

My Saucony Mirage 2s are getting up there in mileage (for me) and I know that they won't make it to marathon day.  I ordered a pair of Mirage 3s earlier in the week and they arrived yesterday!

I could go on and on about my love for Saucony (and no I don't work for them, nor do I get this stuff for free haha) but you all already know how much I love them! Plus, these shoes match the shirt I am thinking about wearing for the marathon. 

Friends Meeting Friends

This weekend kicks of the celebration of the Boston Marathon with the B.A.A. 5K.  Two of our friends are running the race!  One friend, Amber, is from Rochester and the other friend, Crystal, currently lives on Cape Cod.  They have never met, but they are going to meet this weekend!

Again, Amber and I need a better photo together!

Love this lady!

I'm really jealous! I contemplated making the trip there so we could cheer them on and then on Monday cheer on our friends, Greg (Amber's boyfriend) and Isaac who are running the marathon.  I fully expect a bunch of jumping photos after this weekend!

Long Run

Tomorrow is our last long run of this training cycle, really our "last" long run is the combination of the 10K run during our duathlon and the half marathon in two weeks. 

We are going for 21 miles, the first half will be on roads and then the second half will be on the canal path. Just like last time we are going to have a friend meeting us for part of the run, she's going for a certain distance too so we'll all be pushing each other to finish!

What are some of your favorite things right now?


  1. My favorite things: Getting to meet new friends. Getting to race. Getting to mountain bike. Getting to be at the Boston Marathon start line. Getting to be around thousands of awesome people.
