Happy Friday! Can you believe there’s only 11 days until Christmas? Have you finished your Christmas shopping? Because I sure haven’t. Ha! Hopefully in the next few days I’ll be all done.

1. Mount Dora Half Marathon. My last race of 2018 is this Sunday. I will be running the Mount Dora Half Marathon. This is the second time I’ve done this race, as I ran it last year as well. It’s a fun race, just very hilly. Yes, we do have SOME hills here in Florida. LOL!

2. Toby Mac bird. My sweet budgie bird is doing so well! After dealing with some kind of infection back at the beginning of November, and then another feather molt, he is back to his happy self! He is singing, talking and dancing around like crazy! He also looks super cute right now, of course, I know I’ve a bit bias on his good looks. If you’d like to follow him online, Toby has his own Instagram account! 🙂

3. Weight loss journey. This week has been going well. Yesterday was a rest day, and so my calories were lower, and I was more tired, but I pushed through it. It’s only been five days (going on 6 today), but I am feeling better already.

4. Plantar Fasciitis. My PF in my left foot has been acting up a bit lately. As I write this blog post, I’m soaking it in an Epsom salt bowl bath. Time to give it more TLC again. I wear my PF sleeve every time I run, but I’m going to start wearing it when I go workout at the gym as well. If anyone has any suggestions, I’m open to hear them. Thanks!

5. Zwift. Have you heard of Zwift Running? It’s an app that allows you to virtually run with other runners on virtual roads and courses all over the world. I’m going to be doing a couple of virtual runs/races with it through BibRave, and think it’s looking fun from the posts I’ve seen so far from my fellow BibRavePros.

  1. Good luck on the half this weekend. I did not know there is anywhere in Florida whose name begins with “Mount”! Your Toby Mac is so pretty! He deserves his own Insta page! 🙂

  2. Have a great race!

    Toby is adorable. Not long ago I took some video of the birds at the pet store, because they just really brightened my day. I’ve never had a pet bird — probably because I’ve always had cats.

  3. That Mount Dora race has been on my radar for a few years! I hear it’s beautiful there. The timing is the issue for me–it’s so close to the holidays and getting away would be hard. I’m anxious to hear how you like it. Good luck!

  4. Thanks, I’m looking forward to having fun at this one.
    Birds are so amazingly smart and beautiful. I hear ya on being a nogo with cats.

  5. I am SO glad you mentioned that Zwift thing! I saw it a while back on IG and was interested in it but of course forgot what it was called!
    Glad your birdie is doing better.

    Thanks for linking up with us Shannon!
