I’m running my first 5K on Saturday and I’m super-nervous and excited. I know you don’t come here to talk about exercise so don’t worry that I’m going to get all whole wheat on you {nothing against whole wheat}.

Because I’m such a dork I thought that it would be a fun goal to reach 5,000 Facebook fans by the time I run my 5k. Unfortunately I thought about his last night and my 5k is this Saturday May 5th…that’s only a few days away! EEEEEEeeeeeek! So stop by my In Katrina’s Kitchen on Facebook page if you haven’t already and check out what’s going on over there. Oh and tell your friends if you want to help me reach this silly goal. 🙂 Or not. I’ll still love you. I’m loyal like that.

Also I’m over at Rachel Cooks today sharing my super-exciting-over-the-top-wild daily schedule. Come take a peek at what I do every day. It involves this:

Finally, I’m playing with this little gem in the kitchen this week. Yes.

What are you doing this week?
- Katrina

    Way to go, you runner! I get all excited if I do a mile, so this would scare me spitless.

    Can't wait to see what you come up with for the cotton candy syrup!

    I did my first 5K last year (and my second, too)! It was hard but so awesome – the feeling of accomplishment was amazing, especially since I am SO not a runner! Good luck, Katrina – and I'm off to post on FB to help you reach your goal.

    Good luck with your race!! You will kick butt, I am sure of it! Next up you will be training for your first 1/2 marathon 🙂 At least that is how I did it, ran my first 5k in October, and my first 1/2 in May.

    I can't believe I've never liked your Facebook page! That's been corrected. And good luck with the 5K marathon!

    Just did my first 5K this last sat. It was amazing to finish. I was so happy I didn't walk once, can't wait to do another one in June. Remember to stretch after or else…ouch shin splints! Good luck, you'll do great.

    I clicked the Facebook link just in case I hadn't liked but it gave a checkmark on the liked.
