1, 2, 3, 4, 5 for Friday

1.  It's going to be hot this weekend.  Which means I'll be able to fit in a bunch of biking, swimming and running.

I'm going to appreciate the warm temps since we'll have this in about six months:






2.  I'm not in a cooking mood, so we're having Thai food tonight.  Although I'd rather have this:







3.  I ordered a TYR grab bag bathing suit last week, but because of the holiday, the shipment has been delayed. I may or may not post a photo of myself wearing it.  I must say though, I'm getting more and more comfortable in the water.  I still have to take on an Open Water Swim, so let's see what I have to say after that.

4. I have been wearing my kids OUT.  They have summer camp in the mornings, followed by swim lessons.  Then I take them back to the pool in the late afternoon.  This morning I literally had to drag them out of bed, I felt like a drill Sargent. 

5. I am posting Mega Fundraising Giveaway Number Two next week.  This time around, there will be multiple winners.  Here is a list of just some of the fabulous companies who donated products:  Running Skirts, Ryders, Lift Your Sole, GU, Wrightsocks, Sweaty Bands, Gone for a Run, and Inperspire!  And remember, if you've already donated, you automatically gain entries : )

Have a fabulous weekend!!!!

I have yet to really enjoy sushi. Personally, I would rather have Mexican food!

Keeping mine busy too. That's the way to go :) If not, mine would be bouncing off the walls. Sushi looks awesome!! I've already eaten but I could go for some of that :)

I posted a pic of the snow on my blog too. That's kind of funny.

Sounds like your kids are getting in lots of activity this summer! That's great!

Love days when you wear the kids out! That's what I'm doing w/my son -- it's great!

Sorry you won't be running the Boilermaker this year.

I have been so into eating sushi these days - it's so delicious! I keep my kids pretty busy too - I try to scale back (if we can) if it seems like they are getting too worn out - but they will remember all this stuff fondly and forget how exhausted they were! :)
