Five 4 Friday

Being a numbers girl I was excited after my run last night when I realized that I had run 2936.1 miles in 2011.  That means that if I can average 7.1 miles a day for the rest of the year I could hit 3000.  That could be a lifetime record!  The stumbling block could be the holidays but at least it gives me one final goal to push for. 

Do you have a final year end goals?  Did you meet all your 2011 goals?  What was the one you are most proud of?

Well it seems as though my readers don't like the idea that the word failure can be a positive thing if the response to yesterday's post is any indication.  If you missed it click HERE 

What do you think being a "failure" means?

Today is my wedding anniversary.  I'm not a big romantic.  With kids under foot it is easy to slip into mom and dad roles and neglect the husband/wife roles a bit especially when the super secret spy and I are apart most weeks.  BUT tonight we will be spending an evening without children.  I know there will be eating and adult conversation.  I think there may be more but it's been a while since I was on a date so I might need to glance over the handbook to prepare myself. 

Do you and your sweetheart make time for just each other?  Even after years of marriage?

I think December forgot it was December because we have been enjoying so fantastic weather!  Look at the morning I enjoyed recently.  Getting to run without looking like the Michelin man this time of year is great but I am kinda wishing for a white Christmas.  Sorry I am a four seasons kind of person.

Do you wish for a white Christmas? 

Speaking of Christmas and the holidays no matter what you celebrate or if this time of year is simply the ending of one year and the beginning of the next, I wish you and yours a safe and happy season.

Merry Christmas everyone!


  1. Happy Anniversary! Enjoy the husband & wife time tonight.

    Good luck with those miles to wrap up the year. If anyone can make it, you can!

  2. I cannot believe you are so close to 3,000 miles for the year!!! Actually, scratch that, I can. Go you!!!!

    Happy Anniversary and Merry Christmas!!!!!

  3. A very Merry Christmas to you and your beautiful family, Shelly! Love you!!

  4. Merry Christmas and may I just say.....

    WOW *clap clap clap* - You're a super star!

  5. Merry Christmas and Happy Anniversary. We celebrated yesterday. Yes, we try to make time for husband & wife. We figure that without that, we wouldn't be good mom & dad. :)
    I met my goal of BQing and will hit the same mileage as I had last year. I"m not super happy about that, but it is what it is. Hopefully more next year. (New goal!)
    I KNOW you will hit 3000! Can't wait! Merry Christmas, my virtual friend!

  6. 3,000 miles is an amazing accomplishment! And yes, I'm giving it to you even if you are a couple miles off. A little rounding up goes a long way!

    WE don't do as good of a job here as we should w/ alone adult time. Need to work on that!

    This year, I'm most proud of not losing my mind while injured. It wasn't easy, trust me!

  7. Happy Anniversary and Merry Christmas...and yes, we often have to "schedule" adult time...the days just seem to get away from us.

    My longest training run in preparation for my first marathon in February is scheduled for Thursday of next week...which will be my longest run EVER if successful, so that is my one remaining goal.

    Have a safe and happy holiday season !

  8. Happy Anniversary. Hope you found your handbook :)
