We have made it to the weekend folks!!  Well some of us got there a day early (me!), but for all of you getting into it tonight, welcome to the party!

Alan took this picture when we were at the zoo last week. What’s up kitty??

Today was my last “mid long” run.  I certainly can’t call 12 miles a “long” run, but it’s the farthest I’m going before Boston at this point.  I took one look at the forecast for 22 – 40 mph gusty winds and decided I’d rather just hit the treadmill for this one.  I watched a few shows and was entertained!

Since it’s Friday, I thought I would share some of my favorites this week.

Shows I’m loving now… I might be sad when I start running outside regularly because I’ll miss my TV shows!

On Netflix – Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.  A perfect find after I finally watched all of 30 Rock shows.  An odd sense of humor comedy.  Love it!

The Royals – this show fills the void left after I finished watching Gossip Girl (as you can tell, I’m just a little behind on watching TV shows!  ha)  This fits my great interest of celebrity gossipy kind of stuff.  I hope this new show continues on for a long time.  Such a guilty pleasure to watch this.

New shoes in the mail – Isn’t it the best day ever when a new pair of running shoes arrives??  I’ll have to share my secrets for getting cheap running shoes in another post, but suffice it to say I pay only about 50%  or less of the store price on these things!  I went to the running store today and they had these exact pair for $175.  I got mine for $49 🙂

New socks in the mail – I had a gift certificate for my favorite online running store, Running Warehouse, so I bought some new socks.  There was a great sale if I bought 4 pairs so Alan and I each got 2 new pairs.  This is my first time with SmartWool socks but I’ve heard great things about them!  Sydney is in love with them, so I have to make sure they don’t end up in her sock drawer 🙂

Playing games with my son.  Ok, I actually did not like playing this game because it’s really frustrating… and that buzzer is so loud!  You know what’s worse – Chutes and Ladders.  Don’t even get me started on that one.  But in general, it’s pretty great to play games with the kids.

My Runners World Online Forum t-shirt!  It’s Boston psych up day, wearing my blue.  If you are in Boston next weekend you might see a few of us runners wearing these.

Hope you are having a fabulous Friday!


Q: Do you like “no show” running socks, or low cut?

Q: Are you a Chutes and Ladders, or Operation fan?

Q: What is your favorite TV show?

  1. Socks: I like ankle covering socks mostly. Seems to prevent a rubbing feeling to the back of my heel…. might be all mental though

    Ok, I agree with your, the operation game can really make the blood boil! When I was little, I was an expert at this game! My son received one for Christmas and I simply stink at the game now! I wonder, has the game changed? Because surely it can’t be that I am old and shaky….lol

    The only thing that I watch on TV is “Dancing with the stars” (my favorite show) and Dukes of Hazards (my son’s favorite) I really think that my son is probably the only 5 year old who watches that show!! HA! HA!

    I know you must be so stoked about Boston!!!! How exciting!!

    1. Those pink socks are a little lower than I normally wear. We’ll see how they fare.
      We have been watching Gillian’s Island episodes with the kids. That was one of my favorites as a kid. I bet my son would also love the Dukes of Hazzard. Jumping from car to car? Who wouldn’t like that!

      1. I do like the pink color of those socks though 🙂

        Oh, I love Gillian’s Island!!! Shows back then were the absolute best!

        I meant to ask you…. I see you have Newton shoes… have you always worn them? I hear so many good things about them and I am always tempted to order a pair when I am shopping on line! But, I always seem to go with what I know……..

  2. I need all your tips on how to buy cheap shoes! Perfect for a student like me! 🙂
    I actually prefer socks that come up a bit more over my ankle, not too much but a little bit makes my calves look much nicer for some reason 🙂
    I fail at all board games and have been eternally out off by my sister anihilating me again and again during our childhood 🙂

    1. When I was growing up my next door neighbor had 4 siblings so they had a room with TONS of board games. I think that is where I got my love of them because we played so many different games.
