The Friday Five & Happy Birthday Mom

Hello, happy Friday.

Today is my Mom’s birthday. I’d like to say, Happy birthday Mom! I love you and I hope you have a super special, extraordinary day, because you deserve it.

And here are my Five things you don’t necessarily need to know on Friday…

Yesterday I ran 4 miles including speed work. I took today off. I have a 14 miler planned for tomorrow so wish me luck. I’m actually looking forward to it.

I broke down and gave into my inner shoe desires yesterday…

I got the new Mizuno Wave Sayonara’s. This doesn’t mean that I don’t love my Brooks Pure Flow 2’s with all my heart (all three pairs), it just means, I needed the Mizuno’s (see, I run for the shoes).

Yesterday I ate an entire watermelon all by myself. And because a balanced diet also requires protein, I followed it up with a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. I can now die happy.


MacGyver and I went to our favorite Cuban Restaurant for lunch today, La Teresita. It is always delish but the best part is the fried ice cream which is coated with corn flakes, raisins, and topped with chocolate. Then they put it in a fried tortilla and drizzle honey on top. It is the most impressive dessert ever, really, ever!

I really, really want to go to yoga after running in the morning, but they don’t offer Yoga on the Beach here like they do in Venice, and that’s really what I enjoy the most. I have looked into all the alternatives available in my area and since my time is limited and I don’t really want to drive very far, or anywhere for that matter, I’ve decided I’ll have to resort to Prancercise….it’s springy and rhythmic!

Hope ya’ll have a fantastic Friday, now stop talkin and do some walkin, Cut the noose and let it loose, It’s better to be punching into space than in your face, get out there and have some fun!

Do you have a long run planned for this weekend? Have you ever eaten an entire watermelon by yourself?

  1. Watermelon is my favorite fruit, along with prunes, (which I MUST enjoy by myself) – and, while not quite a whole water melon, I HAVE eaten a half at one sitting.

  2. As hard as I try, I just don’t like watermelon… or any melons actually. 🙁

    That Prancercise lady is hilarious, and so serious about her workout!
