I’m an impulsive race registerer + Balloon Creatures.

Good morning my friends! I hope you are doing well on this Thursday morning!

This morning I am joining  Amanda’s Thursday Link Up! (For those not familiar with this weekly link up, it a post of random thoughts, musings and pictures.Something I enjoy participating in…a chance for me to rant and have my random thoughts be a bit “organized” in a way).


1.  Balloon Creatures are just so much fun. Check this out.

2. As you read this, I will be in the dentist’s chair screaming for my life to end getting dental work done. Send good vibes my way, please!

3. How is it Memorial weekend already?! I am so excited to grill this weekend and plan to make this and these. Don’t worry, I won’t serve them together. I just think they both sound good…separately.

4. There are some amazing opportunities for so many girls this summer. GOTR is offering sumer camps! I loved my time being a GOTR coach in the past and can only imagine how awesome these camps are going to be.

5. If he knows what is best for him, he best go run and hide…because I have a spoon!


6. I am going through my little one’s drawers and realize that he never wore newborn sized clothing. For the mothers out there, did you get use of any newborn sized clothing? The ones we are giving away are brand new!

7. I am looking forward my long runs coming up next month in my training. I know…for those of you that know me this is not me at all. Something has changed (maybe it was the 36 hours I was in labor) but I am looking forward to the torture  solitude of the long run. For me, anything past 13 miles is considered to be a long run.

8. I have a problem…I impulsively registered for a race that is in three days from today. Yes, I will be at the starting line of this half marathon. EEeeekkkkk….okay, I must step away from the computer before I continue to impulsively register for additional races…

Your turn:

Do you enjoy long runs?

What is your favorite thing to grill?

    Long runs make me anxious but I usually wind up enjoying them. Even still I always have long run jitters the day before. Burgers are my favorite thing to grill they are classic!

    My kids were all pretty small and we still only got maybe 2 weeks out of the newborn sized stuff. It’s so precious though :)

    The dentist?! Eeeeek! Definitely keeping my fingers crossed for you, lady! I had my appointment last month, and even though it was just for a cleaning, going there always gives me the heebie jeebies. Hope they at least give you a sticker 😉

    I just registered for my first half marathon *gulps* and the furthest I’ve ever run was 7 miles so I think i’m in for a real treat. I’m nervous about the long runs on my training schedule, but I know I’ll stick it out. And the PB & C white chocolate wonderful is amazing, right? I don’t even use a spoon, I dip a finger in every once and a while 😉

    GOTR summer camps? We have a lot of year round schools here so I don’t think we have that but it sounds pretty wonderful. I am a huge GOTR supporter… I wish they were around my area when I was growing up.

    I love impulsively registering for races! I’m sure you’ll do great :)

    All of my kids wore newborn — even my 9.5lbr! I think it depends on the shape of the baby though. Mine all have chunky thighs and cheeks, but are pretty lean elsewhere.

    And I am hit or miss with long runs. I really loved them when I was marathon training a few years ago… I hope I can get back there!

    I’m not a runner but when I do run, I do short ones. I need to get the propane for the grill so I can grill pizza and salmon.
