Marvelous May

I am linking up with Holly @ hohoruns and Tricia@ MissSippiPiddlin 
Join in! ㋡ Check out the etiquette here   Thanks for stopping by! 
I had a very unusual week. Ready for a peek?

It started with 5 happy Monday morning miles. 

Later during the night, I woke up with a fright! 

Dang, stomach bug got me...I just felt vile.


Tuesday was consumed by sleep  (、ン )☾★
All day I couldn't eat.
Finally, my weak tummy recovered and I was ready for a treat! I chowed late night pizza, and felt pretty sweet. 

Wednesday no working out, but I ate the best salad I ever had! 

And I made some fun last minute weekend plans. Crazy?! Yes, just a tad! 


Thursday morning I was ready to roll! Four more in the foggy, humid muck. 

and I caught this sweet sight, which I felt was good luck! 

Friday I jumped in the car and headed out for a little adventure! 

Saturday I met this pretty lady  truly, a pleasure. 
and of course we were going to run!! ㋡  
I'll be back with another post to tell you all about my weekend fun! 

Dr. Seuss, I am not! But I gave it a shot :) 

Tell me how your week went! 

I hope you have a wonderful week 
Karen

  4. That is so great you got to meet up w/ an online friend! It's amazing how close we all can get and never meet face to face (unless we are lucky...)

  6. A poem! You know I love it! It was so great to meet you in the flesh. I felt so scattered brained and wondered later if I was even coherent at all. HA! It felt way too rushed, didn't it? I had forgotten you were sick earlier in the week. And then look at you with an amazing award! I want to say a huge THANKS for going on this adventure with me! That made it so much more special. Thanks for linking Karen and have a good week.

    1. I felt very scattered-brained! Not enough time for sure. I was thrilled we at least got to meet.
      I loved the area, and it was a very fun adventure, I just wished I was better trained! I was dying the last mile lol I still can't believe that award...I don't know how to feel about that. lol

  20. I wanted to hear more about the half -- dang, you left us hanging!

    That's a great looking salad & a cute gosling.

    I can't believe you just decided willy nilly to run a half and especially after having a stomach bug! Talk about fearless!

    1. I wrote my post :) then, I thought of all the things I left out LOL
      Trust me toward the end I was wondering why I thought it was okay to try it! I am not sure about fearless, but I am really not smart sometimes...but i survived okay, and I feel fine right now, so I call it good.
