High Five For Friday: The Beard Edition


Newsflash: when you don't have a full-time job, you don't get as excited about Fridays as the rest of the population. Still, a few things happened lately that deserve a high five despite the difficult news stories that broke throughout the week.

Someone found my blog by Googling "my man won't shave his beard." There are no words for how happy this makes me.

To whomever you are, I say: Welcome, friend.
(Read this post if you have no idea what I'm talking about. Spoiler alert: it's called "When Your Man Won't Shave His Beard")

Yesterday, this conversation happened:

Me: You have some food sticking to your beard.
*Jordan puts his hand to his beard.*
Me: No, I mean your top beard.
Jordan: You mean my mustache?

You mean that's not what I said? Indeed. Carry on, then.

This week I cooked FOUR meals that I found on Pinterest from my Entrees board. Four. All were easy to put together and quite delightful. I might have hurt my arm from patting myself on the back so much.

-Buttermilk Roast Chicken
-Chicken Enchilada Stack
-Baked Spaghetti Pie
-Oven Toasted Ravioli

One day earlier this week I saw a Mini Cooper painted top to bottom with the British flag. I was like, yes, we get it. I've seen "The Italian Job," thankyouverymuch.

I am obviously not going to high five about the Boston tragedy. I offered my thoughts on that horribleness in this post. However, I will high five my local Oklahoma City marathon, which is coming up in just over 1 week! This will be my first marathon, and I am even more excited to run in it after the support shown from runners across the country.

If you don't know, the OKC race is a memorial to remember and honor the 168 people who died in the 1995 OKC bombing. This year, there will be approximately 24,000 participants, and we are going to be wearing red socks during the race (if I can find some) as a tribute to Boston. They have also decided to offer free entry for any Boston runner who was unable to finish their marathon. The Boston runners can start at the beginning of the OKC marathon or start at the place they left off in Boston. It gives me shivers just thinking about it. Awesome stuff.

Speaking of, tomorrow is my LAST long run before my marathon. Someone pinch me.

You'll do awesome! I wish I could go cheer you on, but I don't know if Quinn would enjoy a three hour car ride, so we'll cheer from up here :)

That is awesome that they are offering the free race space and times for the Boston Runners. Good luck on your last long training run!
