Friday's make me sooooo happy

Bacon makes me happy, but Fridays also make so happy. Wednesday I took a rest day today I was motivated to get my tempo run in. When it came to actually running my body wasn't really in it. I got 4 out of 6 miles . Oh well there is always another day. On my schedule for the weekend, a 2 miler today and 11 miles on Sunday. I have the route planned out for my 11 mile run and I am nervous but excited about it. All I can hope for is no rain.

In other news (Just) Trying is for Little Girls nominated me for this blog land award.

The rules of this nomination are:Tell my readers seven random things about myself as well as pass on the award to seven other great bloggers.
Nominees, in order to accept this award you must:
1. Thank and link back to the person who awarded you
2. Write seven random things about yourself.
3. Award seven other awesome and inspiring bloggers.

My Random Facts:
1. I have been on a TV special for the BBC about the car accident I was in 1996.
2. My husband tells me I have webbed feet. I have to disagree.
3. I could eat Mexican food everyday for every meal! Seriously I could.
4. I drink way to much coffee, I have been weaning myself to 1-2 cups a day, and now tea also.
5. My favorite color is blue.
6. Many year's ago my husband and I used to watch TLC Trading Space one of the designers names was Genevieve. We said at the time that would be a good name for a little girl. Several years later we had our daughter and named her Genevieve Marie. I like to say we named her after me, since she has my middle name - but only 'classier', we are Jennifer and Genevieve, even if she does go by the nickname Evie.

7. My brother and I were asked if were identical twins most of my childhood. Not in a good way - they usually thought we were boy/boy twins. Someone thought it was a good idea to give me a pixie hair cut when I was 5.

And the nominees are:


  1. I love #6. My mom, me and my daughter all have the middle name Marie too. Very cool.

    Good luck on your 11 miles this weekend. You can do it!

  2. Awe .. thanks Jen for nominating me! I've never had anything like this passed on to me before. I too have a slight coffee addiction. AND I could also eat Mexican food every single day. I would be nervous about 11 miles too .. but you'll of course rock it. I'm nervous for my 7 miles I have. That will be my longest distance to date. Eeek!

  3. Fun! My mom, me and my daughter all have the same middle name - Louise. I *hated* it when I was a kid! (I'm still not wild about it, haha.) My daughter uses this against me constantly - if you hated it so much, why did you do it to me?? Tradition. ;)

    We contemplated the name Genevieve for our Alli, because I wanted to call her Neve. But I have a hard time spelling Genevieve, and somewhere along the way, Allison prevailed. It was largely due to Elvis Costello's "Allison."

    I had you in my list of nominees this morning, but when I went to copy the link I saw that you had already posted. :)

  4. I could probably eat mexican food all the time also! it is so addicting! You will rock your 11 miles!!

  5. Ahhhh thanks for the nod!!!! You're so kind!

    I used to LOVE watching Trading Spaces!!!

    Wow - that must have been some car wreck - hope you are okay. Yikes!

    Web feet? Hmmm, does that fit for a wordless Wednesday post someday?
