  1. Firecracker run! There’s a 5/10k option. It’s always a hot but fun event.
  2. Family time and cookouts. Burgers. mmm.
  3. Being able to run in freedom and safety. Thank you to ALL who serve our country. We are all truly blessed to run free.

Sup y’all, it’s Friday!! So pumped for the Friday Five link-up hosted by¬†Courtney,¬†Cynthia, and¬†Mar. Check out their rules and future topics¬†HERE! The BEST way to connect with new bloggers.¬†Let’s just dive right in shall we? I won’t monopolize your Friday morning with too much rambling. Promise. ūüėČ

5 Exciting Things About Running Currently

1.) Okay, so y’all know I’m all registered for marathon number 5 now, right?! Thanks to my sweet husband who gave me his credit card and let me pull the trigger. Mr. P also registered for the half. He was this close to breaking 2:00! Savannah, we are coming back for redemption full force baby!! This right here is exciting enough to qualify for all five exciting things about running…but wait, there’s more…

2.) Pluuuuuus my BRF is signed up too! ¬†Annnnnnnnd another local rock star runner has come back to town from her awesome running, burro¬†racing adventures (yes, it’s a real thing. Check it out HERE!) in Colorado and is running Savannah too! Both A and L and smokin’ fast and strong runners and I’m beyond excited and privileged to run with them!!

Colorado you are on my bucket list!! Maybe not with the burro though… Source

3.) Annnnnnd many of our Transylvania county runners are registered! ¬†I had a great time at our Greenville race so I’m thrilled about the group going!

From our Green Valley Race in SC!

4.) I ran on national running day. Of course. But on that day I also met with a new client who used to run 10 miles a day and wants to get back into running more again. A woman after my own heart…being able to encourage and train has probably been the most exciting thing lately.. It truly fills my soul with joy.

5.) I’m finally, finalizing my marathon training plan and even typing it up all pretty! wheeeeeee!

I can not wait to test my mind, body, and soul again. Test me Lord.

How was your week? What’s exciting¬†about running for you lately?!¬†Have you heard of burro racing? Do you race with friends?
Blessed and beautiful running!
