Five Things Friday 5.8

I know, I know it's been awhile! I have been super busy people! The perfect thing about this post is while you are reading it, I am on my way to DISNEY LAND!!! It's finally Tink weekend!! We are spending the week out in California as part of our five year wedding anniversary trip! The second part of our trip will be in November when we go to Disney World!

Anyway, IT'S FIVE THINGS FRIDAY!! I guess the best thing to do for this post is my Five goals for these races. I will be doing the Pixie Dust Challenge. This means I will be completing the 10K on Saturday and the half marathon on Sunday! I will not be racing the 10K, but I will be racing the half.

Here are my five goals for Tink weekend! I decided to break them down by my A B and C goals for the half, plus then two others just for fun!

A Goal: Sub 2 half marathon.My goal for 2015 is for all of my half marathons to be sub 2. Do I believe I can do it, yes. There is no doubt in my mind that I can. I wanted to have this race have an achievable A goal, just in case something weird happens with travel or the 10K the day before.

B Goal: 1:55. I have been training at an 8:48 half marathon pace, which will give me a 1:55 half marathon. After the past weekends awesome paces, I am feeling very confident in myself. Which is a huge accomplishment in itself!

C Goal: 1:53. It's a stretch, I'm not going to lie. Like I have said before, If your dreams don't scare you they aren't big enough! If I can get around 1:54-1:53, it will be a great building block for my goal race in September. Plus, I'm starting in corral A and the fast feet around me might be motivating!

Random Goal 1: TAKE ALL THE PICTURES! I am not racing the 10K. Instead I am running with my friend Brooke! We are wearing coordinating costumes and going to go slow and have fun! I am finally going to stop for pictures at a Disney race!

Random Goal 2: Meeting new friends! I am so excited that Sparkly Soul and PRO Compression are at the expo! I get to meet some of the people who make some of my favorite running pieces! Plus, there are some Oiselle team members who are also doing the race and we are going to meet up! Seriously, I love meeting as many people as I can!

Since I will be gone for a whole week, make sure you stay connected to my race weekend through Twitter and Instagram! If you have friends running this weekend, make sure you let me know!


  1. Good luck in your race and hope you have a blast in California!!

  2. Good luck and have fun! I can't believe I haven't been to Disneyland. Ever!
