Friday Things

After my post earlier this week about the awesome online community of runners, Sue Gelber at Outside the Comfort Zone posted How Twitter Made Me A Better Runner.  I agree one hundred percent.  This is one of the reasons I adore Twitter and spend WAY less time on Facebook.  I still love it for keeping up with family, friends and PICTURES!  But, Twitter is easily customized to my interests and anything slightly offensive or annoying is limited to 140 characters and can be quickly glossed over - unlike all the advertising and paragraph long rants (on all sorts of topics, not just the election) some people feel the need to post on Facebook, as if it's their own personal soapbox instead of a way to connect with others.  Well, I think I've already made my feelings about Facebook clear - moving on...

This week I tried making oatmeal a la Sarah OUaL (her post here) and, lo, I have reached a new breakfast nirvana.  The secret? A frozen banana.  Genius.  Especially good with a dollop of Justin's chocolate hazelnut butter.  NOM.  Speaking of chocolate, I'm starting to get all antsy to bake now that the holidays are almost upon us.  I'm making these double chocolate chip cookies tomorrow night for dessert, so that I can just totally negate my morning long run.  I've even started listening to Christmas music.  I held out until November 9th, not too bad...

I have another virtual run to pass along; Mommy Run Fast has got lots of great prizes for Racing for Relief, to benefit Hurricane Sandy victims.  Easy peasy, if you haven't already donated to the Red Cross - git on it!

Song for today courtesy of BPM, my favorite Sirius XM station for finding new running tunes: Don't You Worry Child by Swedish House Mafia.

Happy Weekend!
