Friday Favorites!

Back again, a week later! Yikes! My computer is STILL in the shop so posting has and will continue to be sporadic until then. Ugh!

BUT enough of that. It's time for some Friday Favorites! Linking up with Clare, Heather, and the Virginia Bloggers! Let's do this!

1. I have another race this weekend! I took a few weekends off after a month and half and am so ready to get out and hit the pavement again. There's just something about waking up early on Saturday morning and racing with friends. It's one of my favorite things about summer! It's just a 5k and I don't really have any time or race goals set, I'm just going out and having a good time. Although I wouldn't say no to hitting sub-22.

2. I came across this picture of Peter & I yesterday for #TBT and had to smile. This was our first picture we ever took together! Almost 4 years ago! It was Thirsty Thursday (oh to be young again! ha) and I had gone to karaoke with my best friends. Somehow, I convinced him to leave his crew and come hang out and watch me make a fool of myself. And the rest as they say, is history. ;)

Hello, chubby cheeks! ha
3. Yesterday was my last morning version of Power Hour! Can we just talk about how much fun I had teaching it?! It was totally a learning experience and I'm so thankful for the group of women who showed up to be my "test" subjects day in and day out. It was so beyond rewarding watching them slug it out each morning. I threw everything and the kitchen sink at them and they never once complained--they worked their butts off! I hope if nothing else, they learned that they are capable of absolutely anything and are so much stronger than they think.
Oh and how did we end the class? With a 10 minute plank off. Holy abs! I'm totally feeling it this morning!

4. These pins because they look absolutely delicious. And after a summer of over indulging, I'm trying to be good for a couple of weeks. ha. If I can't eat it, I can at least pin it, right?!


Yeah, my sweet tooth is absolutely insane.

5. I'm officially signed up to volunteer for the Virginia Spartan Super at Wintergreen in a couple of weeks! Ahh! I'm super nervous about this one because a) this is one of the HARDEST Spartan's according to everyone I volunteered with in ATL and b) I'm doing it alone... eek! Totally not my style but I couldn't let this one pass up. I've been wanting to do this particular race for the last couple of years and finally just decided to (wo)man up and go at it alone. But let's be honest.. if you've ever ran a Spartan, you know you're never REALLY alone, right?! Time to start practicing my rope climbs and spear throwing! Oh... and burpees.

I hope you all have a WONDERFUL and relaxing weekend! Hopefully I'll be back to a 'normal' posting schedule next week!



  1. Haha I want to eat ALL of those pins ;) Happy Friday, Sarah!

  2. A plank off is a crazy way to end class :)....crazy hard and FUN!
