Friday Five – March 28th – So Much to Celebrate!

Happy Friday everybody!  Its hard to believe that today is the 13th Friday of 2014 and that we’re already a quarter of the way through the year.  I feel like I’ve accomplished so much in 2014, and so little, all at the same time! This week is worth celebrating for so many reasons!  I have much to celebrate and be thankful for this week, including:

1.  I set a new 5k PR on Monday!


This was definitely an incredible way to start the week off!

2.  Although it snowed on Tuesday spring is hopefully here to stay!

One of my favorite views of the Cherry Blossoms has always been how they beautifully frame the Jefferson Memorial!

I can’t wait to enjoy more Cherry Blossom views like this one when the blossoms bloom next month.

3.  Tomorrow marks my one year blogiversary!


Although I don’t usually post on the weekends I have a special post in the works to mark the occasion tomorrow.

4.  From Dancing to Running reached a milestone yesterday – over 100 people like my blog Facebook page!


I’ll talk more about the power and influence of social media in the blogging and running community tomorrow, but for now I’ll just share how truly amazing blogging and social media is in bringing complete strangers in the running community together to support and encourage one another.

5.  My birthday is on Sunday.

The birthday celebrations kick off tonight, when one of my closest friends will be in town to celebrate.  We’ve known each other since we were babies (our moms were college roommates and our moms are each of our godmothers).  We’re so close that she refers to us as godsisters, and refers to Preston as her godbrother-in-law.  Then the birthday fun continues throughout the weekend with more fun with more friends.

QOTD: What accomplishments or events are you celebrating this week?

As always, thank you to the DC Trifecta Bloggers (Courtney from Eat Pray Run DC, Mar from Mar on the Run, and Cynthia from You Signed Up For What?!) for hosting the weekly Friday Five Link Up.  Be sure to check out their posts as well!

  6. Hey girl congrats on all the exciting news! I’ll wish you a happy early blogiversary now. Please forgive us if we don’t get to read your anniversary post tomorrow. We are going out of town and hope to be “unplugged” if you know what I mean! Also, happy birthday. Wow, you look like your mom. I bet you get that a lot don’t you? Have a great weekend sweetie!

    • Thanks Meranda! And no need to apologize, we all need to unplug every now and then.

      Most people usually say I look more like my dad and that my sisters look more like my mom. There’s pictures of both of my parents on my Marathon Weekend recaps if you want to see me with both of them for comparison.

    My accomplishment of the week just came today…finally approved by Institutional Review Board for my dissertation research to proceed. Scared and excited. This means I will likely have to quit my job.

  14. You were right — you do have lots to celebrate! Happy birthday, blogiversary and new PR 🙂

  15. Welp – I almost worked out 5 days this week. My son got sick the night before so I couldn’t make the early-morning boot camp but from here on out – I am THERE front and center ready for more punishment. Happy early birthday and congratulations on your new 5K PR! That is great time.
