Dipping a marshmallow the size of an infants head into my hot chocolate and taking a bite out of a chocolate cloud of heaven.

Wearing my shorts this morning that I just got in the mail from the Dog Town 1/2 Marathon…..I didn’t make it very far before my leg started hurting but let’s think of a positive spin on it because it is Friday Favorites…… guns are getting pretty scary looking from focusing on lifting more than running and I am finally learning to listen to my body and STOP when it tells me to rather than saying, ‘just one more mile.’

These PB Protein Balls from HOLLEY (you will LOVE her blog and wish her good luck for her SLC Marathon next Saturday!!!) she has the recipe on her blog for them.  Make them now.  4 pb balls=one serving in my book, I couldn’t help myself.

Wearing my NEW BALANCE minimus running shoes.  I LOVE walking in them and wear them everywhere and as soon as I can get some miles in them I will be doing a full review and dare I say it….A SHOE GIVEAWAY!


What are your FAVORITE THINGS about your FRIDAY???

Do you wear your running shoes other than just when you run?

-Comfort > wearing fancy high heels…………Billy is already stuck with me.

What are you doing tonight?

-PIzza Pie Cafe with the family……..I am going to try and beat my salad record and eat two ginormous (weighs as much as my niece) salads.

Woah, those are some serious guns!

I have almost completely dumped my heels because I need my feet to run, so they aren't worth it anymore. I actually wear not horrible looking, but definitely not sexy, Merrells to work because my feet feel good in them.

Tonight is definitely a sit around and try to relax night. There is way too much going on for me to want to do anything but relax. And ice my knee.


MelPeabody @ Green Mountain Runner April 8, 2011 at 3:28 pm

You will love running in them. TRUST.


theAlmostRunner April 8, 2011 at 3:29 pm

you can do the shoe giveaway right now. i'll give you my address, no problem.


movesnmunchies April 8, 2011 at 3:31 pm

I Think my favorite thang are those muscles– woohoo janae.. your triceps are bangin!!!!

SUN is my favortie today.. we are gettin a heat wave in london!


Lisa April 8, 2011 at 3:32 pm

You are buff!
I'm a heels girl, I'm 5'2" so I need all the height I can get.
I'm doing nothing tonight. I planned to get to sleep early so I could wake up and run 12 miles, but I'm having second thoughts.


Dorry April 8, 2011 at 3:33 pm

Those shoes look awesome! I want a minimal running shoe to wear at work -I'm on my feet for a long time. My Friday favorites – a short outdoor run, boot camp, apple snack and bike ride with Billy. :) We're taking it easy tonight – I think we might go see a movie – we have free passes!


Britt Burns Kelly April 8, 2011 at 3:40 pm

I've been wanting those shoes for some time now, so your shoe review is much anticipated!


Regina April 8, 2011 at 3:44 pm

Wow, your triceps are awesome girl!

I love heels- I am a shorty, but only have a short time to wear them. Heels + icy ground= not a good thing. So through the winter I wear boots and running shoes.

We are just chillin' at home tonight, we've been traveling the past 3 weekends for my oldest's basketball tourneys, so I am so glad to not have to go anywhere!


misszippy April 8, 2011 at 3:45 pm

My son is wearing those shoes..they are groovy! You will love running in them.


lolzthatswim April 8, 2011 at 3:50 pm

Ooh girl I have heard wonders of those shoes. Those shorts are awesomesauce for real. Anything in one package is considered a serving..obviously. 4 pb balls packaged as one…one bag of potato chips even if it is 3 gallon size…is of course one serving.


ashley & sundance April 8, 2011 at 3:55 pm

I need a ticket to your gun show. Seriously. I think i should start doing weights with you and your sister!

Kristin April 8, 2011 at 3:56 pm

your arms look so great!!!! :) :)


Katie @ Healthy Heddleston April 8, 2011 at 3:59 pm

Oh gosh, I don't wear any kind of sneaker if I'm not working out — my feet like to be freeeee! I'm all about slip on shoes that I can get out of at anytime!


XLMIC April 8, 2011 at 3:59 pm

The cool playground my kids got to go to today was one of my Friday favorites. The way the toilet flushes at this house where we are vacationing is rocking my world!

I wear my old running shoes to just wander around. If I had multiple pairs of newer ones, they'd be on my feet all the time.

It is already almost midnight here… tonight we went on a boat ride on the Seine with a couple of families we know who are spending this year in Paris. It was fun!


Lindsay and James Cotter April 8, 2011 at 4:12 pm

I'd have to say your FACE is my favorite. Um, too cute. I love it. I want that marshmallow too. Favorite thing today? hmmmm…..maybe that I got the house super clean? I know, boring!

runyogarepeat April 8, 2011 at 4:12 pm

Happy Friday!
Ooo I can't wait to read your review of those! I am a major clutz, so I wear high heels maybe once a year. Otherwise, I live in flip flops in the summer and Uggs or moccasins in the winter.
My Friday is fabulous because it was my rest day, and I made double chocolate peanut butter cookies for my friend's birthday. I'm fueling for my long run tomorrow with cookie dough.


Trying To Heal April 8, 2011 at 4:15 pm

i'm so boring tonight…i'm babysitting my friend's dog so i can't leave town, otherwise i'd visit my boy because it's snowing here….:(


Katie April 8, 2011 at 4:15 pm

Can I get muscles like that please?!
I wear my running shoes everywhere, but it's a habit I want to break.
Tonight, a 3mile run outside and sushi..yum!


Small Town Runner April 8, 2011 at 4:18 pm

I wear running shoes all the time. You kinda have to when you have 3 boys age 6 and under. =D

Tonight…I might go to bed early. haha. I am just zonked.
Still praying for your recovery!!!


2011 Resolutions April 8, 2011 at 4:21 pm

What are your FAVORITE THINGS about your FRIDAY???
The hubby gets off work at 1 so I get to go run around and relax. Hours at Barnes and Noble reading magazines because I am too cheap to purchase!

Do you wear your running shoes other than just when you run?
Not as of today, so sayeth Kara G. I now have a dedicated pair of running shoes that are fitted to me YAY!

What are you doing tonight?
Hanging with the hubby after the baby goes to bed and reading more of Kara's book and drooling over my new running shoes and NCIS marathon that was recorded yesterday WOOP! Far far too many "ands" in that sentence.


runningtowardtheprize April 8, 2011 at 4:29 pm

I thoroughly enjoy your blog! We're actually quite alike in many ways. For example, I get mistaken as my students often. I love tv shows/movies tailored for teen girls. I love chocolate and ice cream. I LOVE Disney!!! I really could go on and on…

I'm glad you're working through your injury – I know how difficult it can be to be 'sidelined'. But good for you on listening to your body!

P.S. You really make me want to get my spin certification and make class a dance party!


Susan - Nurse on the Run April 8, 2011 at 4:38 pm

I wear an old pair of running shoes to work, but that's about it! Otherwise it's flip flops or flats!

I'm working tonight. :(


Rene April 8, 2011 at 4:41 pm

Nice arms.
My Newton's are for running only. Too much $$$ for casual wear, plus the lugs make it not practical.
I do all of my group x classes in my Mizunos.
Outside of working out I'm in flip flops or TOMS.
Doing a paper and studying for a test tonight. I know, I really need to quit partying so much.


Runeatrepeat April 8, 2011 at 4:45 pm

I don't know why I even bother to buy heels, I never wear them…


Pam April 8, 2011 at 4:56 pm

Friday means dinner with my husband at our local Mexican hole in the wall. We're regulars :). The waiters already know our order! Happy weekend!


GI Jane April 8, 2011 at 5:24 pm

I have the New Balance Minimus' too! I did a review here.

Reply April 8, 2011 at 5:35 pm

I always wear running shoes on casual days. If it's too cold to wear flip flops, that's what I'm wearing!!


Nina April 8, 2011 at 5:38 pm

I'm a Mimimus fan right along with ya Janae! They are the best! Except I run on the crushed limestone along the lakefront path and I find that little pebbles get in there sometimes…a little annoying but man they are PHENOMINAL. I'm working on a review of them as well, but I keep thinking the review doesn't do the shoes justice!

Tonight I'm working until 8:30/9ish then going home to eat some dinner (pizza!) and cleaning. My brother's 30th is tomorrow and we're have a surprise party for him!


Jess April 8, 2011 at 5:47 pm

Janae, your guns are AWESOME!! Oh my gosh, come teach me NOW!

Tonight I had an awesome date with the hubby and I am about to unplug and go spend more time with him :) We watched The Tourist and it was a great movie!

Happy Friday night :)

Reply April 8, 2011 at 5:55 pm

I wear running shoes every day to work because I am a p.e. teacher. I actually get tired of it though! Sometimes I just want to dress up.

Tonight I am running a few errands, doing laundry, then getting my bake on in the kitchen!


pawsitivelife April 8, 2011 at 6:01 pm

ooooh new shoes! Im waiting till the snow melts in dear old canada to take my new babies out for a spin…they are only clean once you know


Melissa April 8, 2011 at 6:18 pm

I used to wear my running shoes for all my workouts but since I've started half marathon training, I have new running shoes that I only use for running. Gotta take care of those babies. :)
We are staying home tonight and I'm making pizza for the family. I love pizza on Fridays….or any day for that matter.


Tara Upshaw April 8, 2011 at 6:24 pm

Friday means no school the next day and yogurtland yummyy!!


Corey @ the runners cookie April 8, 2011 at 6:26 pm

New running stuff + cookies is the perfect Friday, I'd say!! Also, your arms look crazy ripped in that picture! I need to get on some of those exercises you and your sister have been posting :)
My favorite thing about friday was making a delicious dinner and most importantly being done with work till monday!


teachprayrun April 8, 2011 at 6:32 pm

As I sit here and comment, my Friday consists of sitting in my running gear with recovery socks on and sandals. I know, I know- I'm too hot!:-)
Were watching a movie tonight per request of my daughter. Not sure what to watch but hopefully shell be in bed soon after.
I have several pairs of shoes so I try not to wear the newest running. Pair out and about- your shoes however look so comfy!!!!!! I would love me some of those seeing that I've been dealing with some feet issues lately:/
Great job with the arms- beautiful! Welcome to the gun show:-)


fitchocoholic April 8, 2011 at 6:42 pm

Friday Favs:
Yummy fruit salad!
Singing with my dad!!!!!!!

I looove dipping marshmallows in hot chocolate! Actually, I dipped them in fondue on my birthday!
Hope you have a great weekend!


pajamachef April 8, 2011 at 6:57 pm

Holly April 8, 2011 at 7:11 pm

DANG girl, your arms are RIPPED!! Weight training loves you :)
& I love the shoes too- New Balance are my favorite :)


Sarah April 8, 2011 at 7:37 pm

I make protein pb balls all the time and keep them in the freezer. Deftly a staple in my house. So happy for friday cuz I get to do my long runs saturday :) I love my purple nike luner glides for everyday. Eating mexican and watching a movie tonight!


myhighonlife April 8, 2011 at 7:38 pm

loooking BUFFF! Ow ow! ;-)

Looking in my closet you'd think I wear heels everyday. But buying them makes me feel just as good as wearing them… I definitely go for comfort the greater majority of the time.


kay.tee. April 8, 2011 at 7:52 pm

I keep wondering how tall you are. I almost never wear heels because I'm 5'11." I've become more comfortable with my height as I've gotten older (and skinnier), but never learned to walk in them. My boyfriend is 6'4" so I bust out some wedges every once in awhile.

My very favorite thing in the whole world right now is called Pinterest. I made a board of quotes and things that inspire me to run. Check it out, I think you'll like it!


Annette @ EnjoyYourHealthyLife April 8, 2011 at 8:02 pm

those shorts are awesomesauce :) have fun eating dinner with the fam. I am loving BodyPUMP (teaching it), and eating b-fast with the husband before he heads to work. Happy Friday!


Yasi April 8, 2011 at 8:12 pm

My bf just got those NBs and LOVES them.


Stefanie D. April 8, 2011 at 8:37 pm

Check out those guns girl! Lookin' good!

Friday's in general are just awesome because we are nearing the weekend! I am so glad you finally got your shorts!


Angie April 8, 2011 at 8:43 pm

You always make me laugh! Love the pics. I may eat my screen to get that marshmallow! Don't know a thing about those shoes, so it will be fun to hear your review!


Taweesa April 8, 2011 at 9:27 pm

My favorite Friday thing is that I did not have to work.Nice!

I don't wear my running shoes except to run and go to the gym. I did splurge and buy the KEEN Venice sandals today. pure comfort and they look cool with my skirts in a sporty girl kind of way.


Amanda@runninghood April 8, 2011 at 9:42 pm

A shoe giveaway! Ahhh, I can hope, I can hope. you look buff in that second picture. Those weights are paying off girlie! I wear running shoes almost every single day. Or my slippers. I accidentally wear those out in public all the time. Family movie night tonight. Tempo run earlier. Resting my legs tomorrow. peace out.


Kate (What Kate is Cooking) April 8, 2011 at 11:46 pm

Haha, a marshmallow the size of an infant's head- that is disturbing and delicious at the same time!


the dawn April 8, 2011 at 11:49 pm

i've seen those shoes everywhere! can't wait to hear how they compare to your vibrams…are they a good alternative? or supplemental?


Vanessa Kennedy April 9, 2011 at 12:27 am

Ooh, I LOVE New Balance shoes- can't wait to hear your review! Also, I am TOTALLY craving marshmallows now :)


thecreamfilling April 9, 2011 at 7:12 am

Dam girl, look at them guns!


Sarah April 9, 2011 at 7:20 am

I wear my Minimus Trails for crossfit. I like them a LOT better than my VFFs. I love how wide the toe box is and the way they grip my arches. I especially like that they can be worn with or without socks. I can't wait to read your review!


Jogging with Fiction April 9, 2011 at 10:08 am

Those shoes look sweet! I usually don't wear running shoes unless I'm running, though I do wear my retired (too many miles) shoes when I'm walking the dog or hiking.

My favorite thing about Friday is that Mike and I had a date night at Jalapeno Heaven. It was glorious!


Nike Vapor Superfly August 22, 2011 at 11:10 pm

I like the blog.This article was written well.if you want buy cheap soccer shoes to Nike Mercurial Superfly
