Saturday Sharing #3 or #40

So today was the Stroke Awareness 5k an my husband and I decided to be spectators and cheer on the runners. It didn't go as well as we thought it would..
I don't even know why I made this face..

So the first set of runners were the super fast, springy guys. They literally looked at us, didn't even smile, gave us disgusted looks and kept on going. After the fast runners passed we had a group of people who were laughing and saying thank you. One lady said "Aw I run for you!" Since I was holding the injured runner sign. But every now and then there were people who looked like they hated that we were there. One lady even said, "we needed that water station way back there!" (We were close to the only water station..but it was only a 5k..) one guy even dropped the F bomb about our "no crop dusting" sign. I left feeling really unappreciated and kind of like an idiot.  I'm sorry but I don't really want to be a part of that sort of running community. That's the sort of attitude that I never want to have towards anyone, let alone to people who got up early to cheer me on!
Ok rant over.

I got in some retail therapy yesterday and today.

Just me and my sidekick Iron Girl.

She has way too much fun in the clothes racks.

Then grandma taught her how to play catch in Target..

Look! I have a sandal tan!

I made Poppy Seed Chicken Casserole the other night. It came out really good so I'll share the recipe sometime. :-)

I did one round of Jillian Michaels' Killer Buns N Thighs about two days ago..

I thought I foam rolled and stretched enough but I guess not. I'm walking like a penguin..

Since the weather has been warm I've been walking Daniel to school which is about half a mile one way. Getting exercise and saving gas = win-win!

Tell me something completely random!
Liike..what's your favorite kind of cake?

Enjoy the rest of the weekend!


  1. That sucks about the attitude of the people running the 5k :( I'm sorry you had to deal with that. I wonder what was going on because runners are usually so appreciative about supporters. And my favorite cake is probably carrot cake with cream cheese icing.

    1. It's ok. It made some of the runners happy so it was worth it. The people here don't really have the supportive mentality..I can't speak for all but I'm certain almost everyone here has the mindset of wanting to be better than the next person..that's ok though..maybe we can inspire others to be more encouraging.
      Ooh I love carrot cake!

  2. Oh how I miss walking like a penguin after a good workout lol. I love you signs. I'm sorry people were such buttheads. :/

    1. Haha it's ok. I won't let it stop me from cheering at other races. It was worth it since there were some who loved it.

  3. LOL, I love that sign! I bet you made a lot of runners smile that day! I am sorry that people were so rude, that is so weird because you don't really hear that often when it comes to runners in a race. I don't think you should feel like an idiot, I think the people with the bad attitudes should feel like idiots. I'm sorry you were treated that way, when all you were doing was getting out to share some good spirit!!!

    1. Thanks. It was worth it if it encouraged a few! I won'tet it stop me from doing it again. :-)


I enjoy hearing from everyone so please, leave a comment!
