Friday 5: This Summer I Will...

Happy Friday!  I'm linking up with Mar, Cynthia, and Courtney again today.  The theme this Friday is
"This summer I will...."  I'm looking forward to reading what other people are up to so I can get ideas on what to do when I am bumming around this summer!  I already shared a few of my running goals, but I'm excited for a lot of other things this summer, too!

This summer I will....

1.  Play with my family!  I have so many family visits this summer and I cannot wait!

Does it get any better than this?

2. Check out a few more places from our Doggin' Maryland book.  One of my new year's resolutions was to visit 5 new places, and so far we're only at 1!  My sweet boy is on some hip supplements now, so I'm hoping we can take lots of long walks.  There are several trails I've been meaning to check out for a while now and this summer it's going to happen.



3.  Foam roll.  I need to do this more.  Maddux really hates it though and he even attacked it once.

Who me?

4.  Join a running club!  I'm really excited about this one.  A couple of weeks ago I wrote about my debate on whether I wanted to join a running club or a training program, and I think the running club is the way to go this year.  I just have way too many days out of town to justify spending big bucks on a training program.

5.  Relax.  I am more than looking forward to reading and lounging by the pool.

What are your summer plans? Big and exciting or low key and relaxing?  Both sound good to me!

  2. I joined a women's running group when we moved to NY. While I don't run with them every week, it has been a very positive experience to run with new people. Also, it pushes me a bit more!

    1. I'm looking forward to having someone to do my long runs with! And getting my butt out the door in the morning during summer will be easier to do if I have people to run with :-) Glad you've had such a good time with it!

  3. I thought about getting us these ridiculous sequined ball caps to wear to the Indians game when you visit, but then decided they might not be us--after seeing this oh so fashionable picture, I might have to rethink that decision.

  5. Always wanted to join a running club as they sound perfect for training and such, however, there are none in the town or area that I live in and I'd have to travel to get to them so the cost and travel just doesn't warrant it for me.

    I'm surprised they don't have a running club in my town though, there's LOADS of runners about.

    1. No running store or anything that does group runs? :( Maybe some of the runners will get together soon and change that for you!

    1. I'm really excited, BUT I also made this decision at the worst time because I have to wait a while until I can actually go. I hate when my mind is made up and I have to wait haha!
