Five things Friday, ep. 11

  1. The weekend looks like it will be nice running weather (for February in upstate NY) -- partly cloudy, highs in the mid-to-upper-20s. I will be out there! I've got a long run on tap that I'm really looking forward to.
  2. I have been busy writing all kinds of articles over at Examiner.com. Many are local and some should appeal to runners everywhere, like the one about NYRR's upcoming Run for Haiti (you in?).
  3. I'm finally comfortable with where I'm sending my son for preschool next year. How can something that should be so simple and easy become so tough? Oh, right, it's that special brand of mama-insanity. I'm glad I got over it. For now . . .
  4. Side steps -- you know, stepping from side to side -- work wonders for the hips. I started doing them about a month ago and my hips feel much stronger during my runs. A simple little exercise that yields results! I like those.
  5. I still have the book giveaway going on here. And a fun gear giveaway starting on Monday!
Have a great weekend, everyone!

Glad you're going to have nice weather! We're going to get the snow storm down here in the city. For once upstate has better weather!
Good to know about the side steps. I've been meaning to start doing those and now this is a great reason to do it!
Have a great run!

Running a long run in the 20's sounds tough! But choosing where your little boy will spend a good deal of time - even tougher! Glad you found a place you like.

I wish out weather would get better! 12-19 inches of snow predicted for tonight/tomorrow!!

Side steps...I think I'll check em out!

MCM Mama said...

Sooo jealous of your weather (as we have 16-24 inches falling from the sky).

I'll have to try the side stepping as one of my hips has not been enjoying long runs lately.

I'm thrilled the weather in upstate NY is going to be good for the Polar Cap tomorrow. I need to go see what book you are giving away. That is exciting.

Thanks for the reminder about the side lunges. I do front lunges routinely, but forget about the side steps. Thanks!

oh man, we are just starting to look at preschools...and I'm freaking out!

Meg said...

Any type of education or care for your kids can be a concern, that's so natural. I'm happy you found a nice pre-school...pre-school teachers rock. They do SO much and get paid so little. It's a job of the heart!

Heather said...

Yes, that mama-insanity and its evil stepsister mama-guilt are ever present!

Have a great weekend.

Anne said...

Enjoy your weekend run! ...preschool is their first experience with "school", so of course we want it to be good. Glad that the decision is made :)

Jocelyn said...

Glad you are having decent running weather! I am still hoping no snow will actually hit NYC so I can go out and run too

Jill said...

I hope you have an excellent run tomorrow and the weather holds out til you're done! Yea for the preschool - seems like eternity that I was there but I remember sitting overnight practically to land a slot for a preschool; it's such a hard decision! Happy weekend to you!!

Oh I need to start thinking about preschool but we are moving so I will check once we move... Totally avoiding it.. Oh gear giveaway.

I truly believe that we have reached the point where technology has become one with our lives, and I am 99% certain that we have passed the point of no return in our relationship with technology.


I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Societal concerns aside... I just hope that as the price of memory drops, the possibility of copying our memories onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's one of the things I really wish I could experience in my lifetime.

Hope you have a great run this weekend!

Denise said...

No nice outdoor running around here today...buried under 2 feet of snow! it's pretty, though!

Lisa said...

figuring out preschool is a good thing. you'll sleep better now.

J said...

It seems like every weekend is cold here and the weeks are warm! I wish we just had a nice warm weekend! I am hating the windy, low 20 temps! I have been doing those side steps as well because of PT from last fall and you are right they work wonders!!

Roisin said...

Sidesteps with an elastic band either around my ankles or around the bottoms of my feet (MUCH harder) are one of the things I've been doing in PT.

Hello.

A banks is a financial institution that accepts deposits and channels those deposits into lending activities. Bank primarily provide financial services to customers while enriching investors. Government restrictions on financial activities by bank vary over time and location. Banks are important players in financial markets and offer services such as investment funds and loans. In some countries such as Germany, bank have historically owned major stakes in industrial corporations while in other countries such as the United States banks are prohibited from owning non-financial companies. In Japan, banks are usually the nexus of a cross-share holding entity known as the keiretsu. In France, bancassurance is prevalent, as most banks offer insurance services (and now real estate services) to their clients.

The level of government regulation of the banking industry varies widely, with countries such as Iceland, having relatively light regulation of the banking sector, and countries such as China having a wide variety of regulations but no systematic process that can be followed typical of a communist system.[url=http://projectcontrol.v3host.nl]CLICK HERE[/url]
