Friday Five – Loving

It’s Friday so I’m linking up with Fairytales and Fitness for the Friday Five linkup! Join in! Don’t forget to link back to your hostess and visit some other bloggers.

It’s time for a What Am I Loving post so that’s my topic this week:

1. Running in Skirts 

Finally it is warm enough (most of the time) to run without tights and capris.

I wish the season was longer cuz I have TOO many skirts.  The good thing about skirts, though, is that you can wear capris and tights under them in the other seasons whereas tights and capris cannot be worn when it is too hot.

I may have bought one more… but that’s it! I am done!

2. New Running Friends

I love ALL my running friends but recently a local running club started a group called SOAR (Sisterhood Of Athletes and Runners). They meet at 6 pm every other Wed at a different location. The organizer always plans cute ice breaker activities. I plan to attend whenever I can.

Another runner has planned ice cream group runs – each time ending at a different ice cream establishment.  I’m all over that!!!!!!!!!

3. Shorter Races

With 4 halfs and a 15k in FOUR months, I am enjoying spending less than an hour at a race on the weekends, (That will be short lived as I start Marathon training July 1).

4. More Daylight Hours

As a working runner, I can now run at different locations besides UAlbany since I don’t have to worry about lights!

5. Tennis

Due to work and finances, I did NOT play tennis all year.  I thought that I didn’t miss it. But I played everyday (for 7 days) while on vacation in Florida.

Yup, I still enjoy it. I do miss it.

Running is #1.

But I hope to add in some tennis once a week this summer and maybe join the club again next fall so I can play twice a month.

Happy Running! What are you loving right now.  Please share.

  1. SOAR running group sounds awesome! I’d totally join if I lived near you. And if I could run. Also that run for ice cream group’s finish spot? LOVE. Right up your alley, too!


  2. Here we also have a running group that meets at 06.00 p.m. They are named VOV (in Italian language vizio ozio volontà – vice idle will-). But I don’t join them because I prefer to run in the morning.
    Long time ago we had the glorious Black Knight Army……..

  3. Right now I’m just loving being healthy. And I’m also happy with my shorter runs — don’t really see that changing anytime in the near future, although I’d like to get my longish runs back up to about 6 miles or so again. Just maintaining my base.

    I absolutely do love running in my skirts!


    • Being healthy is the most important thing.

      Somehow I keep signing up for long races. I still want to race some 5ks this summer and get some speed back.
