Random Friday Five (Friday Five Edition)

I'm working on my recaps from my Star Wars runDisney weekend.  So stay tuned.  For now, here is 5 random thoughts.

1. After 3 weeks at work, my house is a disaster area.  How can things go so wrong so quickly?  It doesn't help that I unpacked from the trip and just left everything on the floor.  I hope to get all of that put away this weekend.  Sigh....

2. As I work on my recaps, I'm finding that I'm putting in tons of detail in the posts.  I'm not sure if that's good or bad.  I love detail, but I don't want the posts to be super long and probably boring to everyone else.  I do want to be able to look back and remember the little things, but I don't want to have to go through 20 pages full of stuff. :)

3. I got extra bars to hold my medals on my wall.  I can't wait to get them up, cause I have been doubling up on medals recently.  I still have to hang up all those medals I got this past weekend.

From last year.

4. I really hate my commute into work.  I've never worked downtown and while it's not that much further then where I've worked before, mileage wise, I have to deal with a lot of traffic.  And stupid people who don't know how to merge properly.

5. I have a triathlon coming up in 2 months.  I haven't done a tri in almost 2 years.  The only reason I'm signed up for this one is that I deferred the race from last year.  I haven't ridden my bike in a year and a half and haven't swum in a year.  Starting next week I'll be swimming on Fridays.  I'm not sure when I'll bike, but it probably will be on the weekends.  I just need to get into the tri mindset, which I haven't been in in for awhile.

My first Oly from 2014

Do you have a hard time keeping your house clean during the week?  Do you have a good commute to work?  Have you done any triathlons?

I'm linking up with Fairytales and Fitness and Running on Happy for Friday Five 2.0


  1. Oh no, the whole time you stayed home and cleaned your house went right out the window! JK. I know how easily things can get cluttered again!

  2. wow ! a Triathlon !! how amazing! When did you start you new job? Do you like it ? What are you doing now? Congratulations on the new job?

    Those medals look amazing!

    If I want to remember the whole race, I write two recaps, one for myself, and one to post.

  3. I have a commute to and from work too, but mine is pretty awesome. It's all interstate and no traffic hold-ups. It takes 20 minutes and is great for prep or unwind... not to make you jealous or anything ;-)
