Five Things for Friday

by Meghann on March 22, 2013


I got the results from my colposcopy this morning.

Thankfully It was all good news. The abnormal cells were mild dysplasia so I will not need a leep procedure (three cheers for that!). However, I will have to return for another pap test in 6 months – a fact I am a-okay with!


I love my new job.

Like really, really love it. I pinched myself after leaving a really productive meeting this morning because I simply couldn’t believe this was my real life. I get to take part in making some really cool decisions. Most days I just spend my whole time in the office smiling.


I’m running a race in the morning.

You know that sub-48 10k I’ve been training for? It’s, umm, tomorrow. I don’t feel prepared at all. My training runs haven’t been what I’ve wanted them to be and I haven’t been hitting my goals. Sigh. I guess whatever happens, happens.


Always double check your race registrations at least a week before race day.

My super cheap $25 10K turned into a $40 10K because I thought I had registered when I really hadn’t. I tore my inbox apart last night trying to find an email confirmation when there wasn’t one. I could have sworn I registered for this race back in January! Even if I had realized that I hadn’t actually registered for the race on Wednesday night instead of Thursday, I could have saved $10. Registration was kept open until 10am on Thursday for $30, while onsite registration was hiked up to $40. #fail

Oh, well. At least they had onsite registration tonight and I was able to register without a problem. AND my registration fee went to a good caught (Pancreatic Cancer Foundation).



I made killer burgers for dinner tonight.

Bacon, avocado, mushrooms, and onions – oh my!


It was pretty epic. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Now I’m crossing my fingers this rain outside disappears before race time!

Good Night!

My first 10K race is tomorrow! I am so excited. My goal is a sub-50:00 10K, but I won’t be disappointed if it doesn’t happen…I just want to race my best with that goal in mind!

It makes me feel all happy inside to think of you being so happy at work! Even if we don’t know what it is yet, there’s no better feeling than loving where you’re at professionally. Good luck with the 10K – can’t wait to “hear” all about it in your pictures!

Glad to hear that your results came back good! I was not so lucky and have actually had the leep procedure to get rid of the pre-cancerous cells. It’s really not fun.

That had to suck about the registration. Oh well, it is what it is, when you really want to do something. Good luck. ๐Ÿ™‚
