Friday Foto/Cans for Comments

Thanks to your comments last Friday, here are 6 food items that I will be donating to my local food bank. Same rules apply this week: One food donation for every five comments left on this post today!





This is my peak training weekend for Goofy: 21K/13mi Saturday and 32K/20mi Sunday. Throw three parties and 400 errands into the mix and I'm tired already. Wish me luck!


HBBC Update

Thursday:
run 3 mi (to/from gym) = 3 pts
1h Spin class = 4 pts
F/V = 1 pt


Happy Weekend!

You are a tough one...that's a lot of mileage for one weekend! Good luck!

I love that you ran to/from the gym. I wish my gym was closer so I could do that! Sometimes I bike to/from, but its just tooooo cold for me right now

It boggles my mind that you are running a half marathon distance on Saturday and even farther on Sunday. And that's just your training. You rock!

H-woman said...

Another comment for ya!

One of my co-workers is running Goofy this year and as she was telling me about it, I thought, "she's freaking crazy!" The more I've thought about it though, "You guys are freaking AMAZING!"

I can't wait to hear how the runs this weekend go.

Congrats on reaching peak week in what looks like peak condition :)

I can't believe that even divided by 5 you'll likely get to give away more cans than I will :)

Laura said...

Wow...I can't believe you are doing these training runs. Hope all goes well. I found out in our clinic there is a guy who once did the Goofy....in Goofy slippers. He is hard core and kind of nuts apparently.
