Friday Five: What I was doing 10 Years Ago


Every Friday, three DC area bloggers Mary at Mar On the Run, Cynthia at You Signed Up For What?! and Courtney from Eat Pray Run, DC to host the Friday Five linkup.  Anyone can join with their own Friday Five post (yes, it must be a Friday Five!!)  They encourage you to visit other blogs on the linkup, comment, share and engage!

This week, the theme is What I was doing 10 Years Ago.

So the year was 2005.

No running.

No boating.

No knitting.

No mah jongg.

What was I doing in 2005?

1. I played a lot of tennis.

I played in contracts, took lessons, played on several teams, etc.

Susan, Catalina & me after our match

2. I worked as a Technology Director for 40 Catholic Schools.

This was my favorite job…so rewarding…so varied…wish I could have afforded to stay there forever.

3. I got to travel and go to conferences around the country.

If only I ran back then…

in San Diego

4. I was into quilting.

I belonged to quilt guild and went to monthly meetings. I went on weekend retreats.

5. My annual trip with the tennis ladies was to Las Vegas.

We didn’t gamble but we liked to go to shows and restaurants and hike on the weekend.

Happy Running! What were you doing 10 years ago?

  1. We celebrated our 20th anniversary with our first trip to HI. Since I wasn’t yet a runner & was almost 40 lbs heavier (and a redhead! I was still dyeing my hair then – I’ll post a picture one of these days), I did not run.

    Luckily I’ve been back twice & one of my fondest memories is running on the beach & along the ocean there.


  2. whatttt you mean being my hs French teacher wasn’t your fave job ever? 🙂 10 years ago, hmmmm…i was just moving back from Colorado to Albany and about to start my grad program at St. Rose. WOW time flies.


  3. We were getting ready to go to Jamaica. Same job. I’ve always water skied but had not found running yet. I was really big into Scrapbooking at the time. But I soon stopped that, cold turkey.


  4. Ten years ago I was living in England with my husband a little Yorkshire Terrier named Muffin. I hated running, but I did love tennis and we went to Wimbledon in 2005, and every year after while living there. It was amazing to have that opportunity!


  5. 10 years ago I was trying to help my son transition from a private school for 10 years to a huge high school, it was a tough year. It was also the year I had my first Basil Cell removed 😦 Not a good year lol
