Friday's Fret, Fact, and Fun - Birthday Edition

Fret - I am getting nervous about my long run tomorrow with stitches. I managed 6 miles on Milles the other day, but I need to run outside. I will be alone and I am afraid if I run close to my house, it will be easier to quit. My plan is to go slow and I will be bringing my iPod in case I do want to quit too soon. I will be going early too because the temps in MD have been brutal!

Fact - Today's my birthday (and my twin sister's) and there wasn't much planned. As a mother, birthdays tend to be more subdued. My mother-in-law created a tradition a while ago that we each HAVE to wear this birthday hat on our birthday celebration as we blow out the candles. It was fun for the kids, but as adults we always complain about it. This year, I embraced it and do you know what? The hat looks much better when the person wearing it is smiling!

Fun - Instead of having the traditional cake/ice cream celebration for my birthday, I have requested a trip to 16 Handles, a frozen yogurt place. This way, we all can enjoy a special frozen treat to our liking, but only one serving.... no extra cake calling me from the fridge. I typically have ice cream cakes for my birthday because they are just AWESOME, but really... it is the center crunch that I love the best. Not sure if this will become a tradition, but I am hoping for the best.

"run with stitches" sounds dangerously close to "run with scissors" --- you rebel!!
