Friday Five: A Day in the Life


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 A Day in the Life.

Here’s 5 things that happen in my life on a typical Friday:

  1.  Social Networking on my iPad 


I start every day with the Today show, breakfast and reading e-mail, Facebook, Instagram and Bloglovin on my iPad. I get up extra early to fit it in.

2. One Minute Plank

I sometimes (when I remember) do my plank on the bathroom floor when I am waiting for my shower to heat up.

3. Work


Not the highlight of my day but it is essential – it pays the bills and pays for my races.  I work in IT at a law school and help staff and faculty with technology.  In other words, I spend a lot of time on the computer.

4. Walking & Running

Yes, I am sitting most of the day. When the weather is nice, I try to force myself to go for a walk…usually to the park.



Usually three times a week, I run after work.  If at all possible, I run outside.




5. Mah Jongg & Reading

Every Friday night from 7-11 pm, I play Mah Jongg with a great bunch of women.  If everyone showed, we’d have 12 – 3 tables but usually we have only 8 and during the winter, sometimes it’s only 4.

We play, eat, drink and chat… so much fun and “brain” exercise, too.

I cannot fall asleep at night without reading.  No matter how late, I go to bed, I read.  Sometimes it’s just a few pages and sometimes I read for hours.

So that’s my typical Friday.

Happy Running! What do you do on a typical day?

  1. I read before going to sleep, too. I guess I’ll never be joining you for mah jong (not that I know how) because staying up to 11 would kill me! How do you do that & get up so early to race?

    My MIL keeps asking if I want to learn . . .


  2. I love your mug! I drink from a NY Starbucks mug every day at work. Is that book really worth the read? I’ve heard different opinions. Yes, work is what allows us to play…so we must. Since we lost the Weekend Update, I took the plunge and am co-hosting a new link called Weekly Wrap. Please, I would love so much if you would link up!
