5 On Friday

FRIDAY!!! Finally. Although, I must admit, this week has kind of flown by for me. There are all kinds of things going on around here, so lets do a little 5 on Friday!


I'm back on prednisone. For the third time this year. Lucky me, right? Hopefully I'm breathing easier come Monday, and able to start getting my workouts and runs in. As much as I hate ballooning up with every round, I'm grateful that it does help me when I need it.


If you've been reading here very long, you probably know that I dedicate all my runs and workouts to Dakota. If you're new here, you can read more about the program HERE. Quickly, Dakota is a 17 year old boy with cerebral palsy, and also suffers from frequent seizures, among other things. He rolls where he needs to go and is such a light in my life. He's my heart, and I'm his legs. Together, we're a team. I love him and his family dearly, even though we have yet to meet in person.

Last night, I received word that Dakota is not doing well as of late. He goes in tomorrow for some testing and hopefully they will get some answers. Dakota has endured far more in his 17 years than I could ever fathom. He is so incredibly strong and always has a smile on his face.

If you pray, please keep Dakota and his family in your prayers this weekend. They really need some answers and comfort right now.

If you don't pray, please just keep them in your thoughts or even consider dedicating a run or workout to Dakota. If you do, please email me any pictures or messages you would like to share with him.

Wyatt's birthday is the end of May, and I'm already in full party planning mode. The theme will Teenage Mutant Ninja turtles (of course). I've been pinning ideas like a mad woman! 

If none of my other ideas go according to plan, it will all be okay as long as I can pull this off:

I am no artist, so it will be interesting to say the least. I think it would be so much fun to get all the guest's pictures taken though.


I shared this on IG this past weekend, but it was too funny not to share on the blog. Wyatt and I went on a 2 mile walk last weekend. The sun was out and snow was actually melting. So exciting, but snow melting in Wyoming has a downfall: 4 months of dog crap thawing in the sun. It's not pleasant. Wyatt starting flipping out the second he caught the scent. He was yelling at the top of his lungs, "Yuck! STINKY, Mama! STIIINKY." Hopefully the neighbors got the hint to get out there and clean up. 


Last but not least: The Weekend!

I'm headed out after work to meet Brad up in Casper for his State Pool tournament. (He's been there since Wednesday). I am looking forward to a fun weekend! However, I've only left Wyatt over night twice. And never for more than one night. I may be a basket case being away for two nights in a row. 

Sunday will be a fun, but crazy day. I will be making the 2.5 hour drive back home, bright and early. Once I get back to Laramie, I pick Wyatt up from Grandma's and take the hour drive down to Fort Collins, CO for his second cousin's first birthday. A lot of driving! The party is Superman theme and Wyatt and are all ready to get all decked out in Superman gear. There will definitely be plenty of pictures on IG this weekend! 

Happy Weekend Everyone!

  1. So heartfelt! I will definitely keep Dakota in my thoughts and prayers. And so cool that you "are his legs". That puts such a different and more meaningful purpose to fitness. Love it! -Stopping by from 5 on Friday.
