High Five Friday #128

by Meg on October 24, 2014

It’s the first High Five Friday celebration in a long time!



I was happy to receive 2 HFF submissions this week, so I knew a HFF post was in order!

A special thank you goes out to the people who support HFF and give themselves high fives because they know how important it is to recognize their accomplishments and be proud of themselves! <3

Linda – I ran a 10k!


I rarely ever do long distances like this. Rarely ever, ever, ever! Can I get a high five?

Got up and ran first thing. Feeling good. I visited Woods Park through the hydro shortcut. There was a forest behind the school it was big and it was beautiful and the leaves were falling down. I ran 10 kilometers oh my god! I did it very slowly because I felt slow. But I told myself it would be okay, because I was aiming for long, slow distance. I didn’t do any sprint intervals in between. I just didn’t feel fast enough. Also, the wind was going against me. But even though I finished with a very slow time for 10 kilometers, I feel very proud of myself for running that kind of distance. Today I proved to myself that even though I am NOT a fast runner, I can do longer distances. I have the ability to run long without stopping no matter how slow I have to go. Today marks a milestone – – not a personal record, but a milestone.

Dana - I’m SUPER excited this week for a couple things! I just received my acceptance letter from Maryland University of Integrative Health, and I’ll be beginning my Masters in Nutrition and Integrative Health program in January! And this week, I was so excited to be featured on Diane Sanfilippo’s page for my review of Mediterranean Paleo Cooking. So pumped that my little blog is going places!! #dreamcometrue :)

This week I am giving myself a high five for starting a new book! I’m definitely not much of a reader, but it feels good to cozy up on the couch in the evening and take 30 – 60 minutes to myself to read!

What are you giving yourself a high five for this week?
