This week was absolutely chaotic and insane due to a really big work event. I am so happy that it’s Friday, and so happy that it’s a holiday at work! 

I was so exhausted after the event yesterday that I came home and took a four hour nap and then slept for about 10-1/2 hours last night. After getting about 3-4 hours of sleep each night this week, it felt so good!

And then of course, started the day with a quick run… yay easy 3 miles! I was going to start marathon training this week but seriously, there was just no way. So, next week! It’s really going to happen. And I’ll finally tell you what race I’ll be running. 

In the meantime, joining up with Courtney @ Eat Pray Run DC to share five random thoughts for you on this beautiful Friday. 


1. This article from The Onion made me crack up:

The Onion | Running Study


2. Are you following all this March Madness craziness? 

Brooks has added it’s own twist to it… 

Brooks is hosting their own Brooks Emoji Madness with head-to-head votes to narrow down runners’ favorite emoji choices until they get to one final winner.  On behalf of runners across the globe, they’ll then ask the emoji makers to create whichever running emoji makes it through the final bracket.

 Brooks Running | Emoji Madness


Follow Brooks on Twitter and vote starting this Saturday (March 26) for which emoji you want created; they’ll also have the same voting options right on their blog. Visit the blog each voting round to see which emojis are moving through and taking one stride closer to phone keyboards (and runners’ hearts) everywhere. I really love the running buddies one!



3. I have been digging my new goal of clean eating

Taco salad for lunch


It’s really easy to throw a meal together! Today for lunch I grabbed some cold rice, black beans and put that on top of some romaine lettuce. Topped that with avocado, tomato, some cheese and salsa. So good!

I am a little sad that I haven’t seen the weight come off like I thought I would, but my stomach looks a lot flatter than it used to. Maybe the weight is just being a little stubborn. 😉




The PGA Tour is in Austin for the first time and I was lucky enough to snag a ticket for Sunday. So, so SO excited!



5. My sister sent me this new song from Blake Shelton and I am so addicted to it. 



What are you looking forward to this weekend? 

Which Brooks emoji do you like the best? Who are you rooting for in March Madness craziness?
