5 on Friday- Rant & Rambles

*2013 I spent most of my life behind in everything I do from running to daily life in general. I said 2014 I WAS going to do better. It started out good but here we are at almost half way point of the year and I am slowly falling behind more and more every day! I'm beginning to get stressed about it and not liking it at ALL but who is its up to me to make things different I know.

**Part of my problem- Last week a man that I know, a man that I saw on Friday eating lunch with his wife then came back to work and waited on him, a man that I knew fairly well committed suicide Saturday night. This man is someone that I would never think could or would do something like this. I am still in shock and just can't really believe it. Of course working in a public office there was lots of chatter going on about what may or may not have happened and things about his life, all that left me wondering about myself. Would people miss me? What would people say/think about me? Would there be good things said? Does it really matter any way? OK TIME TO SNAP OUT OF IT!

***I think Gerard felt sorry for me being all down and out plus he's had a lot of junk going on at his work that is stressing him so he asked me if I could take off and we went away for a quite weekend together! If only I was a millionaire and could afford "Cabin Life" every day.
We went to Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg, TN its about a 3 hour drive from our house and we have found a couple of cabins we enjoy staying in. For just the hubs and I there is so much "free" stuff we can do but for families this area can be extremely expensive. My most favorite thing to do there is walking the strip in Gatlinburg and bouncing back and forward from the Ole Smoky Moonshine and Davy Crockett's Whiskey place for samples! I am totally not a drinker only a social drinker if everyone else is of course I am:) Now they have another moonshine place Sugarlands Distilling Co.which has a brand made by one of the men from the moonshiners show on TV(darn it I was not thinking and was a bad blogger I didn't take any photos!!) Going to these places are so much fun because they have a presentation that is usually funny and you get to sample anywhere from 4-12+ different kinds of moonshine and whiskeys! Needless to say for someone that never drinks 12 samples at one time will have you feeling pretty "Happy" when you walk out, LOL! This trip we was with some bikers (motorcyclers) from Canada besides their fowl talk they was really fun to be taking shots with and I was out drinking one of them! I think I made Gerard proud LOL!! #Goodtimes

****Back to normal everyday life.....I am not a selfie kind of person I just don't like pictures of myself and I'm horrible at taking decent pics of myself. That's the beauty part of having kids they help you stay up to date on all the "cool kid things" even though they think I'm old
Do you think we look alike??
I had to let the youngest take the selfie I couldn't figure out how to get us all in it. Now they are teaching me "How To" love their hearts:)

*****I have several race recaps to do and a few products to review maybe even a giveaway. I hope to start putting all these out soon. As soon as I can put my head back together and get out of these crazy thoughts! Please stay tuned:)

What are you training for now? Or getting ready to train for? 
Got any Happy thoughts to share? Send them my way PLEASE!

Run Happy:)

Sounds like that getaway was just what you needed! Hope the past couple of weeks have been better for you.
