5 Minutes on Friday Morning

So I had big, huge plans for an awesome Friday-slash-pre-half-marathon post....a VLOG actually. It was going to get real fancy-like here. But the Webcam threatening to shut down my entire system and working 'til 8-o-clock every night was not part of my big, beautiful post plans. So instead you get 5 minutes on Friday morning (similar to 7 minutes in heaven except a lot less saucier).

So as you may have picked up already...the half marathon is Sunday...somehow in the 900 communications they send out each week, I missed that I have to be at the race location at 6am! But I don't really care....my body is going to be so glad next Saturday when I don't make it get up at 7:30 and run 12 miles! I get to reunite with the words "sleeping in" and I'm fairly certain my knees will be kissing those bed sheets!


By the Way - It literally pains me that my eyelids were too heavy to read all your blogs last night. Trust me, I'll be working it on the blogosphere this weekend like Miss America on Pageant Day.


But to keep with some sort of theme instead of the long line of incohesive morning thoughts this post has become, I give you
5 Amazeball Things:

1) G-chatting with blog friends. I was able to chat with Megan for a little bit on Wednesday night and we had such an awesome convo. Can't wait to meet her for real life in May!
2.) Your comments. And I'm not just saying this because it's BC (blog-correct). Sometimes I get nervous that no one will come visit this little corner of the interntz anymore....and then I see your blog comments (or in Jayme's case.....blog novels ;).....and I feel loved!

3.) That summer is just around the corner.....My Alice Cullen skin rejoices.

4.) An office that caters lunch every friday....for someone who doesn't take a lunch break Monday-Thursday I am VERY thankful for Fridays!

5.) THE HALF MARATHON FINALLY BEING HERE! That one was a given.....duh.


This picture is awesome no? I will however not be wearing running panties on Sunday.....I've opted for the more traditional running pants.

Cross your fingers for me if you're up at 7am on Sunday morning!

XO, Ashley
