Do I say this every Friday?  I think I do…sorry about that!

But seriously this Friday has been awesome so far.  Guess what I did this morning?!  That is RIGHT. I woke up (after 2 bottles of wine and a hell of a lot of pasta with my bf–he drank more than me, but I definitely ate more) and did a beautiful 6 mile run through the streets of the Upper East Side, to Central Park, around the small loop, back through the streets, down to East River.

I know I talk about the weather a lot in my posts, but honestly the weather is a big part of running.  It can make or break a day for you.  Yesterday on my run home it was hotter than I expected and I had not drank enough water….dehydration=5.5 miles instead of 8.  Oh well. Still a great Thursday run.

Back to today!

I took a lot of pictures today and I wanted to share them with you!

Okay, okay.  So I may have gone a little iPhone-picture-taking-while-running happy…but how could I not today? It was a gorgeous, mood lifting morning out there.  The epitome of perfect weather for a runner.

Also, AGAIN…it is FRIDAY!

So excited because right at 5:00 I am leaving to go catch a train to my mom’s house for the weekend with H! At mom’s request we are going to celebrate my birthday and at H and my request we are going to celebrate mother’s day.  Much deserved for AL.

Tonight we are going to dinner in Babylon and tomorrow my mom and I are doing a semi-long run together.  We are going to plant flowers, go shopping, and enjoy the nice weather all day Saturday.  Screw my allergies I am going to enjoy the great outdoors! Sunday is going to be an interesting morning because H is running is FIRST 5k with mom and I.

Last night over a glass of wine we had this conversation:

Me: “are you excited for the race Sunday?”

H: “yes I really am”

Me: “awesome I am too!”

H: “I am going to smoke you”

Me: “H..I hope that you do smoke me, we will see…we really will see”

H: “I really think I can smoke you”

Me: “It would be very surprising if you smoked me…but again, we will see”

Any takers on the perspective times of H and myself? My best 5k is somewhere around 24 minutes.  H hasn’t run a mile in a year.

That is all for now runners!

Happy Friday–get out there and do something great this weekend 🙂
