Friday Things

It's been a pretty blah week around here, spent with everyone going through the rounds of a head cold.  I kind of dialed down my workouts because I still felt pretty run down.  Today, I thought I'd blow off the 10 miler I wanted to get done, figuring I could just do one in the next few weeks before Eugene and be fine; I didn't.  I thought it was going to rain; it didn't.  I thought I'd be to cold, since I left my arm warmers at home; I wasn't.  I told myself to just try and get as many miles in during my two hour window - yay! the Y increased the daycare time limit from 1 1/2 hours to 2!  

Mini Me was just as happy to have that extra 30 minutes

I got pretty tired around mile 7, but nothing hurt and I reminded myself that the way I was feeling at that moment might not be how I'd feel in another few miles.  

Can't get enough of these shoes!

I kept going and was really happy to hit those double digits again.  It's been over two months since I've gone for a 10 mile run (before all the chiro and PT bizness) and I felt/feel really good.  Love it when a good run happens in spite of myself, like it was meant to happen.

So, I'm going to a baby shower tomorrow!  It has been quite a few years since I've been to one and I'm really rather excited.  I'll finally get to meet Lauren, and celebrate her impending motherhood.  But, um, how about this for party favor?

OMG, I die.  This is gonna be EPIC.  

My other favorite funny I saw this week, thanks to Sally's twitter:

Now we all know what a girls makeup means!

And on a more serious note, I must pay homage to hometown hero (as well as fellow Illini grad) Roger Ebert.  

from the Chicago Tribune

Here's a fun read from Mental Floss on ten movies Ebert hated

I heard a snippet of an interview with the chick from Icona Pop on the radio the other day; she talked about how 'I Love It' is about that moment after you've gone through a breakup and get to the point where you're no longer sad - just mad and OVER IT.  I thought she sounded pretty bad ass, just like the song.  Enjoy and happy weekend!
