5 Things I’m Loving

15 Jun

Oh, Martha….you knowI love a challenge and being called out and such…*sigh* 🙂

So since I was tagged in her 5 Things I am Loving Post that she actually got from Shut Up and Run – Here I Go!

 #1 – Virtual Races – I am just loving the idea of running without the anxiety of the crowds and the tendency to push harder than one should causing burnout.  I do miss the cheering of a sidelong crowd – but I feel so much more comfortable with the timer and myself.  Plus I think this is my way to protest not being able to run with my girls….Stay tuned as I think that I am going to host a virtual race series!!!

#2 – Running Blogs – I think it is so awesome to connect with someone based on a mutual interest. I have been able to find these blogs and share them and gain so much information, friendship, and funnies along the way. I couldn’t tell you how many I read over the course of a week – but I know that it takes a lot of time!! Another fun part is that Martha and I share them a lot so we can chuckle over them together!

#3 – Hours of Sunlight – Up here in Alaska we have so much light right now! I couldn’t tell you how much – I just know when I go to bed it is light and when I wake up it is light. I am not talking the brightness of early morning or late evening. I am talking middle of the day light. I didn’t know how I would do with all of this and at first it made me really tired because I kept forgetting to go to bed! Now it is kind of nice. When I get up – I usually am up and ready to go! Every couple of days I am tired, but all in all – I am feeling so much better!

#4 – Dallas Seavey – the 2012 Iditarod Champion . He was a guest at the Alaska Pacific University Gala and a dog sled ride was auctioned off.  We raised a great bit of money – but the highlight of volunteering was seeing this man dressed super nice with a smile and a great attitude.

I mean really…need I say more??

#5 – The Idea of My New iPhone – I say the idea as it is on its way so I can’t say I actually have it yet. The reason I am so excited is that it will be my first one. I can now use Instagram, I can now use MyFitnessPal, I can do FaceTime, I can now have Google Maps to navigate this place as my GPS in my car apparently doesn’t have the “Alaska package”…I mean really??  I am just excited to be able to use the fun fitness things all the FitFluential people talk about and I can now join in!!!!!

Here are my 5 People I am Tagging!

Jess – Blonde Ponytail

Carlyn – Just Keep Sweating

Michelle – Michelle Philippi

Jess – Run With Jess

Danielle – Kitten A Go-Go

I will also leave you with my new most favorite song to sing to in the car with my girls Happy Friday!

    #1 – AWESOME!!
    #2 – haha! This is part of how I blame you for making me run when I don’t wanna. 😉
    #3 – This is funny because I didn’t realize until you said that, but during the summers it was a lot easier to wake up when it was already light outside…
    #4 – I got nothing. lol
    #5 – A couple more months and I’ll be jumping on the iPhone bandwagon too. *sigh*

    That song. I actually got a little irritated that I found it catchy. She reminds me of Debbie Gibson with dark hair. But the end cracked me UP!!! lol

    Fun post – perfect for Friday! I love summer for the extra daylight, though we prob don’t get nearly as much as you’re getting.

    I’m trying to catch up on my friends’ blogs, but you and Martha have been outta control blogging like maniacs (like I wish I was doing!), and I’m behind on all of life since Vega was born! So instead of getting up & going to the farmers market, like I halfway planned, I’m lying in bed reading your blog. At least my priorities are straight!!! 🙂
