A little of this and that

I have a bunch things rolling around in my head and want to share.   I had such a wonderful weekend but it left me a little tired to write a long blog entry tonight. Here are is a little of this and a little of that...

--My race result for the last two races.  Both races I missed my goal time by under 20 secs.  Sucks to be so close and not meet a goal

Wild Turkey 5 Miler
1038 KARYN         188 F 29 F2529 104 SALEM      MA   52:13 10:27

Reindeer Run 5k

--  The race on Saturday was the last race in the 20 to 29 age group.  I am actually pumped to see how my racing/running can develop in the next age group.

-- This weekend was filled with many fun things including a date night to see A Christmas Carol, Pizza Party with friends, a sprinkle, and the 5k.

-- I had made some wonderful friends since I have become a mother and it makes my heart swell with joy1

--The downsidee of the weekend was there was many wonderful sweets, treats and other foods.  I did not hold back and now I am feeling it.  Back on the bandwagon tomorrow.

--I have 4 great giveaways in the works and I can't wait to share them.

-- I made some awesome healthy treats for the sprinkle.  Watch for recipes and pictures this week.

-- Long runs are much harder after a late night  with a couple glasses of wine and some yummy appetizers.  I managed to squeak out 8 miles but it was HARD.  Not a good idea on my part.

-- The better the weekends are the quicker Monday comes...

So that's what has been going on in my life right now. 

What is your this and that of the weekend?


  1. My husband thinks it funny how I am not bummed about getting older when it puts me in another age category for running! Hope you had a happy Birthday! You did great on your races!

  2. I would probably be better off in a younger age category or much older. I am competing against guys that have ran for 20 years and I just started 18 months ago.

  3. Even though you just missed your goal you were still really close! Congrats on being so close and now you know you just need to amp it up a teeny bit for the next ones!
