Winner, whining and wine would sound better, but we all know I drink beer. ;o)
1. I’ve been really lucky lately. I won a Gas Cap from Dash a couple of weeks ago. I haven’t stored gu in it yet, but I did run in it on Tuesday and I really like it. This week, I won an Anne Franklin Designs necklace from Shut Up and Run. I love scrabble tiles and totally can’t wait to get it.
2. I’m supposed to run 10 miles today. It’s rainy. And chilly. And I’ve not been in a running mood this week. And I woke up with a headache. And… you name it, I’ve got the excuse. I’ve made plans to run with my friend, so I’ll probably do it, but a huge part of me just wants to curl up with a cup of coffee and a good book. Maybe I’ll do that after the run…
3. Last night one of my closest friends was in the area for a conference. She spent the night at our house and she and I went out for dinner alone. I haven’t done a “girls’ night out” in ages and this was just the two of us chatting over dinner and a beer, but I so needed it. It’s always nice to spend time with someone you can talk to about anything and everything and not have to worry about what they might think.
Did you write a “Three Things Thursday” post? Link up!

it's rainy and chilly here too, good thing you have scheduled to run with a friend. Leave the cup of coffee for after the run and then you'll have it to look forward to! That's great that you were able to have a girls night dinner out with your good friend. Things like that are so importnat!
G and I braved the rain. It was cold and we only did 4. Not sure I would have made it 10. But the coffee sure is good right now …linked up. I tried it last week but wasn't really sure how to do it and didn't want to mess it up.
It was chilly this morning and I just wanted to curl up in bed and stare at the ceiling. One of two running partners just had surgery, so I HAVE to run with the other one. Just doesn't seem right to skip out on him. Glad I did it. Yay to girls' night with a good friend that you can just be totally yourself and say whatever you want, do whatever you want without fearing being judged. I love that. Glad that you have a friend like that.
Love "girls night out" :)Motivation is definitely hard to find with this weather…having a friend to run with will hopefully make it easier to get out there.
You will not regret getting your run in and the relaxation afterwards will be even sweetre!
Dinner and a beer with a girlfriend is superb! Sounds like you have been a lucky lady!
A GNO is the best; don't do them often enough. Since I'm under the weather, running in the rain sounded pretty stupid, so I opted to stay in bed!
Linked up! Thanks for doing this linky linky thing again. Congrats on your wins! I won the RLAM book 2 weeks ago and still am thrilled about it. I've got a new giveaway going right now, check it out!
think about how amazing that coffee will taste after a cold rainy run….!
I hope you find some nice motivation and everything else you need/want for a good run.
yay for #3! 🙂
Girls nights out are the best! Go out for that run – you know you'll feel better!
I was just thinking that I need a girls night – so glad yours was good!
Yay!! Its so fun to win giveaways :)I bet girls night was lovely and great job on your 10 miles! I saw your fb post! I did 10 yesterday and although they were not my best, I still was glad I ran them.
Girl time with no guilt is the best!!!
Wah wah wah! I don't mind the whines, it makes me feel like I am not alone! Great wins, congrats!!!
Don't shoot me, but I am HIGHLY jealous of your cold weather and rain! It's UNseasonably WARM here – 87 right now! WTH? I'll take cold over HOT any day ;)Glad you had a nice time out, those are the best evenings 😉
Hope you got that relaxing time in!
Rainy and cold here too. Which is why I ran inside. Nice job getting outside today!
Girl time with beers is the best. Hope the rainy run with a friend went well!
