Five Things Friday 8.22

Hello my little corner of the internet! I hope you all have had a great week! My craziness has finally started to slow down! I am SUPER excited and feel like I can breathe again!


Through the craziness, I have managed to find five awesome things that will hopefully put a smile on your face to end the work week!

1. My mom sent me this comic. It is from The Oatmeal. It is the DOs and DO NOTs of running your first marathon. IT IS SO TRUE!! Read it here.

2. If you follow any sort of pro running sites on social media, you will have seen the big news that Kara Goucher is back and ready to run her first race in quite some time! I am so thrilled to see her back and loving what she does. You can read about The Comeback here.

3. Mark Remy at Runners World can make me laugh just by reading the title of his columns! This time, Sock Mishap Sends Runner to ER. SO FUNNY! Click here to chuckle!

4. A friend of mine sent me this, I laughed so hard I was crying!

5. So this one is a win for all married women. I have been telling hubby for months to give compression socks a try. He has awful flat feet and is on his feet all day at work. FINALLY he took my advice, with the awesome low trainer 50% off sale (that is still going on through 8/31). HE LOVES THEM! I even got a "you were right". TOTAL WIN FOR ALL WOMEN! 


  1. Steffany, your Pro Compression discount finally got my hubs to agree to the calf sleeves he's been thinking about; in the process, I got another pair, too! Win win! Thanks so much! I shared your pic of Sheldon with several folks that I know...LOVE IT! Hope you have a fantastic weekend!

  2. I loved reading Kara's comeback article. Every time she pops up in my social media, I fall more in love with her (in a non creepy way). The best role model ever!

    I read EVERY ONE OF THEM! She followed her heart and that makes her instantly the best! Can't wait to see her race again!

    I snorted when I saw it for the first time! Only because it's so true!

  5. #4 is my life right now.
