By the end of it, I was red faced, sweaty, and my hair was a hot mess. Whew.

After my running group’s bridge run/boot camp on Tuesday night, I went to Wendy’s and tried their Asian Chicken Salad for the first time.

It was delicious – I give it two thumbs up!

Fitness Friday (5)

Last but not least, Lance posted this to his fb on Monday and I just had to share because I think it’s hilarious! (Monday was Cinco de Mayo incase you didn’t notice…..) Good one, Lance!

Tomorrow, I’m running in a 5 mile race in my hometown. I haven’t run in this race since my IT Band injury, so I’m intrigued to see how it goes!  My main concern is the heat and humidity (the humidity was at 100% yesterday morning…sigh).

We also have our 15 year class reunion this weekend an I’m super excited to see everyone! (I graduated with a small class of 19 so we were all very close.) Yesterday, I called to order a cookie cake and asked for it to say c/o 2000. The guy on the other line said “TWO THOUSAND?” (like OMG you’re still alive?) Yes, thanks for confirming that I’m getting old, dude. Appreciate it.

Hope you all have a great weekend! What’s your plans?


  1. Great week Karen! Have a great race tomorrow! Hope the humidity stays away!

    1. Thanks so much, Mindy! :) Hope you had a great weekend!

  2. Good luck tomorrow. I know all about the ITBS :-/ I graduated in 2003 so I'm almost there for the 15-year.

  3. Good luck at your race this weekend! I'm going to a concert with one of my favorite bands tonight, so I'm pretty excited.

    1. Ooooh how exciting! Hope you had a great time!! :)

  4. Happy Nurses Week & good luck in your race!

  5. No big weekend plans here, just still getting settled in after being out of town. LOL to the NSYNC pic!
