Friday Five 1.13.17

Happy Friday! This week has been so insane, crazy busy, that it felt like 2 weeks in one. I have been a bit absent from the Blogesphere, because work and life have been super busy.




I'm linking up with Running on Happy & Fairytales and Fitness  for the Friday Five 2.0. Today's theme is Dream Vacations or Winter Destinations, but I'm giving you a combination of places that I want to run this year and two dream races.


1. West Chester Pa- This town has been on my list for a couple of years, they have races often, but I keep missing them! this year for sure! My sisters work here, and it's a lovely small city.

2. Oxford PA- I did a race in my hometown in 2014, and 2015, but both races didn't happen on 2016. I love running in my hometown, and the benefits of a giant pancake at the local dinner is all the motivation I need.

3. Pittsburgh, PA- I am finally registered for a race there! in September, I will be doing the Great Race 10K.

4. *DREAM RACE* Fort Lauderdale, FL- I've wanted to run the A1A Half Marathon for a while, but schedules and budget never work out. I'm hopeful that this is the year I will do one race there, but also trying to not be too sad if it doesn't happen. And Fort Lauderdale is always a great place to visit all year round anyway.

5. DREAM RACE - RnR Mexico City. it would be amazing to run in Mexico city!! I think I would cry! but again, everything has to line up... schedules, time, money. I will start saving now, to maybe think about it in 2018.

I hope you are having a wonderful Friday... I'm back to completing my audits and reports... if I finish them early, I'm totally going to get myself Tacos. and If I don't have them done by 3:30, I will still get myself tacos, cause I'll be hungry.

What is one dream race for you?
How about local races?
Did you finish your Friday work yet?
Do you have off Monday?
How long was your week?

  3. I have always wanted to do the Pittsburgh marathon which is in May. But I have heard that is a challenging course because of the hills and bridges. Mexico City would be awesome! My goal is to run an International race at some point.

    1. I have read that is hilly and I've wanted to do it too, but it's a schedule conflict this year... my brother is graduating that weekend... I seriously asked him if he could rescheduled it.

  6. I was scrolling my blogger time line looking for your recap this morning! I totally get it - this is busy season for me, I will have to pop in and out- life happens. I am not even close to finishing my Friday work lol I will be backed up now till April.
    I know how racecations are - fun, but not friendly for my budget. I hope you get to work a few in too :)
