Happy freakin Friday people! We made it. Another week has passed us by and we are now ready to let the weekend wash over us like a cool and refreshing adult beverage.


Today, not only am I linking up with Happy Fit Mama but I’m also giving you a chance to win a sassy pink hat from my friends at TrailHeads!


Yes, this is my sassy pink mesh TrailHeads hat and I love it.

High Five Friday is all about being positive and writing about the good things that happened all week long. So, basically I can’t bitch about how I was solo parenting for two days, how my kids can’t seem to sleep through the night lately, and the countless people I wanted to say  M.Y.O.B. to this week. Nope. What I can tell you is, despite my petty issues, I had a fantastic week.


Seriously. The last five days we have had almost perfect weather. It’s been a cool 60 degrees or so in the morning for my runs and then warms up into the low to mid-80s, with tons of sunshine, for the rest of the afternoon. If this is Fall, then bring it on baby!

Cool and cloudy are exactly how I like my track workouts. The rest of this day was sunny and warm!

You know I love my football and Sundays just got so much better around here. The Packers and the Patriots won last week, and that makes for a very happy household. I can only hope my Packers destroy the Seahawks this weekend. Someone has to. #GoPackGo

Too late. Jordy Nelson is already out for the season.

My husband I were able to go to the Oddball Comedy Tour, with six friends, here in Hartford last weekend.  Amy Schumer and Aziz Ansari were the headliners, but were probably the most disappointing of the comedians. Since this is a purely positive post, I won’t tell you that we had to wait in a ridiculous line for drinks and, after the show had to walk (in wedges and a silk shirt!) in the rain back to our parking spot. #ImTooOldForThatCrap

Shhh don't tell anyone my set sucked.

What I will tell you is some of the other comedians, like Bridget Everett and Anthony Jeselnik, gave two of the funniest performances I have seen in a while. I’m talking tears and “I can’t breathe” kind of laughing. You really haven’t lived until you’ve seen this:

You don't want to know how far that dress went up.

I was so excited to finally see my first article published for Women’s Running! Things in this area have been looking up and I have more news coming soon…

Obviously I wasn’t too anxious to take this screen shot. I waited 9 whole hours after it was published.


As you know, I love sharing my favorite things with you guys. The mesh hat TrailHeads sent me when I was running from wild animals in New Hampshire over the summer, has become one of my favorites. It has a smaller fit, perfect for my womanly head, is super breathable and washes well. What else can you ask for in a running hat?

To enter, simply leave a comment telling me why you need or want this hat and what, besides running, you will do in it. Keep it clean ladies.

What do you have to high five for this Friday?
