Long Weekend Friday Five

Oh, the glorious May 2-4 weekend is here! Monday is Victoria Day (celebrating the Queen’s birthday) so I took today off to  have an extra long weekend.

This is one of my favourite weekends as I usually run the Bluenose Marathon but not this year! I might have a little FOMO (fear of missing out) going on but I’m trying to focus on other things this weekend.

May 2-4 weekend

I’m excited that my youngest is doing her Primary orientation today…woah! I can’t believe she’s going to school in September, however she is ready for the change. She is so excited to be going to school today. I, on the other hand am writing this post before I have to take her so I can stay awake! I had a horrible sleep last night – it was well after 3:30 when I fell asleep! I’m hoping for a short nap while she’s at school.

I mentioned the infamous Bluenose Marathon is this weekend. Both girls are running the 2k kids run which means I’ll be running it with them. I love seeing how many people are there as parents can run with their kids!

Last year’s Bluenose Kids Run:

Kids Bluenose Run 2016

I have a 15k long run today and I’m really looking forward to it! I think that’s a good sign I picked the right race (June 18th) for me this spring. I’m hoping to do my long run with my husband which makes it even better. We’ll see if we can find someone to watch the girls.

My ankle is acting up a bit from the increased running I guess so I need to figure that one out. I wish I could find my own cupping set to massage out the pain I’m feeling. I’m not going to let it bother me this weekend. Positive thinking.

The girls have swimming lessons on Sunday (one of the reason I chose not to run Bluenose) but I’m hoping we’ll get out biking! It would be great to get the girls out on the trail but the bugs are just starting up so we’ll see if they’ll been keen.

That’s what I’m looking forward to this May long weekend! Oh and maybe a little BBQing, enjoying some of my Mother’s Day wine (Tidal Bay) and having all four of us home! Monday will be an bonus day with the girls since my husband has to work.

What are you up to this weekend?

Are you taking advantage of the May long weekend (if applicable)?

Anyone have any strategies to avoid FOMO?
