Running by the Palm Trees and a Summer List.

I logged a few miles this morning by the pretty palm trees…it’s amazing the things I discover in my ‘hood! Legs are feeling good after running Sunday’s half! I sure am thankful for these strong limbs of mine.

I did one of these summer lists last year and since the summer solstice is just around the corner I thought I’d jot down a few things I’m looking forward to during this sunny season.

Eating/ Green smoothies, salmon sashimi, huge pretty salads, and mangoes…I like to cut them up all fancy.

Drinking/ An abundance of H20. I love it ice cold especially in the middle of a long summer run. OK…and maybe some homemade sangria with fresh fruit.

Practicing/ The art of being in the present moment.

Mastering/ Being organized…I’m getting better at this but still a ways to go.

Learning/ From every individual that I meet. We can always stand to learn something new from or about someone.

Trying/ An aerial yoga class. Because it just looks super fun to hang around like that!

Playing/ More with some of my favorite people. What would life be like without girlfriends honestly? I do not want to know.

Finishing/ A juicy beach read type of novel. Suggestions, anyone?

Reading/ Lots of running magazines. Yeah I’m a nerd like that.

Remembering/ To tell my mama and daddy that I love them everyday.

Wearing/ Shorts, bikinis and flip flops!! And keeping my tootsies pedicured because they tend to get out of hand with all of the running that I do.

Cooking/ Some more BLUE APRON dinners. Nom nom.

Working/ A little bit less in order to get out and enjoy the sunshine. Work smarter, not harder.

Traveling/ to Austin, Houston, Galveston and then Las Vegas in the fall.

Wanting/ to spend more time by a body of water…enjoying looking at a beautiful sunset.

  1. Wow – palm trees look great! Beautiful scenery. Congrats on getting back out there after the half marathon – you rock!
    I’m looking forward to more patios and more outdoor drinks and being outside with friends and beaches and water. So many summer things to look forward to! Great post idea – I may steal it 🙂
