And we all know that means DC Trifecta Link Up Time!!
This week’s topic? Well…there’s not one. Basically it’s Blogger’s Choice or any 5 random things we feel like posting about. I am supremely unfocused this morning – NEED MORE COFFEE – so this works out just fine for me.
1. 2014 Fall Training Blogger Directory
It’s up and running and I’m so excited to have more than 40 AWESOME BLOGS added to it so far! I wanted to thank everyone for the great response and for sharing it with your Twitter and Facebook followers too. I’m going to be creating a badge for it for my own blog and anyone else is welcome to use it as well if you want. If you haven’t seen the list yet, you can access it here (or by clicking the tab in my nav bar) and if you would like to be added on, you can message me through my contact form or email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org with your blog and race information!
2. Fit Foodie!
I am a proud Ambassador for Cooking Light & Health’s Fit Foodie Race Weekend in Fairfax next weekend and I’m getting pumped for my mini-racecation. I will have all sorts of fun events to attend from a cocktail party on Friday night to a celebrity fitness instructor led yoga class on Sunday morning. Plus obviously the 5K on Saturday morning followed by yummy food and wine tasting! And as if it could get any better than running and wine, I will finally be meeting some of my fave bloggers, Cynthia, Sue, and a newly married Courtney!
3. Flashback Friday
Everyone thinks my daughter looks like Mr. Salt. That is…until they see pictures of me when I was little.
Is that Betty or what!? My mom posted this as a Throwback Thursday on Facebook yesterday and even though I know that she looks like me, my mind was still blown. I showed it to Betty and even SHE thought it was Betty! Genetics are cool. Also I wish I still had that swimsuit. And that I was at a beach right now.
4. Speaking of Betty…
NO MORE DIAPERS!!!
And that’s as much as I’ll talk about potty training on the Internet because you don’t need the gory deets. It sure has been a process that I’m glad to never have to go through again. I will say that I’m considering setting aside all the money we would normally spend on diapers and then paying for her college with it because those things are Ivy League EXPENSIVE.
5. A New Learning Adventure
In other Betty news, she starts a new school on Monday. She has been going to the same in-home daycare since she was 8 weeks old and we figured it was time to move her to an environment that has a little more of a structured curriculum. I have a feeling this switchover is going to be a lot harder on me than it is on her; she’s been talking about going to her new school for weeks and lights up like a firecracker when we so much as drive past it.
For the first time ever I will be undertaking the huge task of packing school lunches and to be honest I have ZERO idea what I’m doing. So if any of you parents have some easy ideas for me (that don’t contain peanuts…she doesn’t have an allergy, but it’s a nut-free school) those suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
6. And one more random thing…
I have my first post-Potts race this Sunday. It’s just a small run club 5K and I’m not PR hunting, but it is part of their Grand Prix Series so I’m hoping to at least finish decently in my AG.
Whatever you have on tap for your weekend, I hope it’s marvelous!
Do you have any random thoughts to share?
