Turning into Slush and Wknd Recap.

You will have to excuse my absence over the last few days. It has been a mad house in my little world! We had a fun ice storm roll on through here and I am happy to say it is all melting today and turning into slush.

Yep, that’s Texas for ya.

I ended up having to bust it out on the treadmill this morning along with some weights. 5 mile progression run.

I am oh so thankful temps are getting back to normal towards the end of the week though…leading up to my very first 50K on Sunday, March 1st. Game on!

Let’s recap the weekend, shall we?

For the most part my Saturday and Sunday were both real low key. I went out to sushi with a friend guy of mine and curled my hair. I am getting better at curling my hair with the flat iron. Work in progress.

Saturday morning I had a 12 mile run scheduled in the park. Nice run just enjoying my feet hitting the pavement.

My neighbor Camillia and I also hit up this swanky new cocktail bar called Parliament. Super cool spot! Check it out if the next time you’re cruising Uptown Dallas. Crafted cocktails, jazzy bluesy music and a good time.

Sunday I ran 8 miles and stumbled upon some colorful flowers. Thankfully I got this run in right before the freezing rain hit. It was an easy, slow run but glad to get the miles in.

Then it was brunch with my mama at Coffee House Café. Crab cakes benedict for the win.

What are the temps like today? High of 42.

  1. Your hair looks fab, and I’m getting super stoked for your ultra (I feel like I’ve been following the story for awhile now, and I’m pumped for you!!!). Happy Tuesday! And, it’s not currently snowing in Boston, but we will get 2 – 4 inches tonight. Joy! Haha. It’s 16 degrees here (feels like 6 degrees) – yikes.

  2. I’m so excited for you to run your 50K on Sunday – you are going to kill it. I ran one this morning as my last long training run and thought of you!!!

  3. Your running right now is making me realize what a fail I am in training for this half I’m supposed to run in a few weeks! Great job with the miles, girl. The cocktail bar sounds fun! It’s soooooo cold in NYC lately. Brrrrr.

  4. LOVE that pink top selfie. You look gorgeous. I hate when the weather is bipolar. Today feels like a heatwave and that’s just 32-degrees. I was like, “damn, why didn’t i pack shorts today for my run?” Hope you are having a fab week.
