1. First reason life is so crazy, my sister, Alesha, and her husband are here from Utah for the weekend b/c my other sister (her twin, Erica) is getting sealed in the Portland Temple on Saturday. I love that they are here, but we have tried to pack a month's worth of activities into a few days. Totally worth it though! She just got married this summer and we don't know our new bro-in-law very well, so it is always great to get to
2. Reason two-I am throwing a grown ups only Halloween party next Friday! In a sadistic way, I love stressing about hosting a good bash. I may be shy, but I love throwing parties so I can make cute decorations and sinful food! Here is some of the stuff I have made so far...
3. Couch to 5k is reason 3. Still loving it, but with the company and baking it is becoming hard to find the gym time. I WILL get all 3 runs in both weeks. That is my ultimate goal!
Tuesday's run was fantastic. The plan called for 90 sec running/ 2 min rest, but since I had already been doing a 90/90 split, that seemed like a step back. Coach had me choose between 90 sec run/ 60 sec rest, or 2 min run/ 90 sec rest. I chose to run for 2 min. I feel like I need to cheat and get ahead a bit in case it gets really hard, I will have a little edge. I really never thought I would love following a plan this much. Any beginners out there, find a plan, it is fantastic!

4. So, this isn't really stressing me too much now, but since I had intended to make this a 3 Things Thursday post ( yep, Thursday got away from me) I only had 3 items in mind and needed a fourth! Both Jesse and I are signed up for Seattle RnR, the half of course. My distance PR to this point is a 10k, and I only went that far once, so I definitely have a long way to go! Jesse is going to be my pacer, but I don't have any grand allusions of a great time, just finish decently and alive! Although, I have started stressing about where to stay. I just don't have the time to put in the Internet research just yet!
So, what is great or stressing you out this weekend?
