Friday Favorites: 10/24/14 Edition

Friday Favorites | Lil Mys Ninja

It’s been a few weeks since I’ve posted a Friday Favorites. Actually, I’m now in my busy season with work so my days are a little longer which makes my evenings shorter. I wish there were more hours in the day. Wait…I wish the days were longer! One thing I don’t like about the upcoming winter is the short days. The sun sets so quick. Ugh!

So enough of my woe-is-me. Let me share some fun stuff from this past week!!


You’ve Got Mail!

Rock Encore Heavy Medal

Who doesn’t love getting mail?! I’ve been patiently waiting for my Rock Encore Heavy Medal to arrive and it finally did! I earned this after completing the VA Beach RNR half marathon. I should be receiving the Triple Crown Heavy Medal in a few weeks since I did the Philly RNR half marathon. Can’t wait!

Momentum Jewelry

I was lucky enough to win this workout friendly jewelry from Momentum and Lea who blogs at Running with Ollie. She recently held a Virtual 4 Mile Run and Scavenger hunt to celebrate her birthday. She had tons of great prizes and I love this one! It really is nice and soft. It doesn’t feel too tight and I love the mantra I chose. Thanks Lea!!


Elijah’s Pouty Faces

Elijah

I couldn’t resist sharing this photo I snapped of Elijah earlier this week! I haven’t been running much but I have been trying to get in my daily mile for the Virtual Old Glory Coast to Coast challenge for Team RWB. Long days at work make for late evening walks. Instead of going outside in the dark, it’s been easier for me to jump on the treadmill to walk the mile or so. Poor Elijah has pouted every single time I was on the treadmill this week. Talk about a guilt trip, eh?!


Here We Come to Save the Day!

kitten

This adorable little kitten was a stray in the parking lot near British Bulldog Pub. She or he came trotting along meowing away after pub run Monday night. This little one was bold enough to rear back and hiss at Elijah. But she followed everyone. She was all over the parking lot. Normally I would leave a kitten in case mama cat is close by. You don’t want to separate kittens from mama cat too early. However, I felt that if we left this little one, she would get run over by one of the many cars that fly around this parking lot. Needless to say, my friends and I spent about 2 hours trying to catch her. She would even eat out of Laura’s hands but by the minute you try to touch her, she darted off. She finally crawled into the wheel well of a van and I saw my chance. I had to get her quick before she got too far up under the van and into the engine. Luckily she is rescued and now has a home!!


Snuggle Time!

Pawmetto Lifeline

I met little Quaid on my Feline Care Shift at Pawmetto Lifeline on Wednesday. He is a snuggly one! The minute I sat down, he crawled into my lap and settled in. And oh my, what a purr-box! That was definitely a great stress reliever that day!


Reminder!!

Elijah

And don’t forget…if you’re in the Columbia, SC area, be sure to come out to the Fleet Feet Pub Run this coming Monday night at 6pm to meet Pawmetto Lifeline and some doggies that are waiting for their furever home! You may even take one for a walk!

What are your highlights of the week? Share your favorite moments!

See you on the road!
