20 Miles, Mini Bites of Artwork and Wknd Recap.

Hey lovely people! Hope your Monday is getting off to a great start. I got things going with a spin cycle & strength session that I taught at the gym then headed over to Starbucks. Someone in the drive thru paid for my breakfast and iced coffee! So I paid it forward and bought the next person’s drink. Feels good to do that sometimes! Spread love as much as you can. You never know when someone needs a little cheering up.

Anyway…let’s backtrack to the weekend! There was lots of running and some fun in the sun of course. I had my longest run of the marathon training season on Saturday…20 miles…I got carried away and almost did 21. Haha…oops…I guess I was having a little too much fun.

I hydrated with electrolytes and tons of ice cold water. Oh and of course I had to take a dip in the pool afterwards to cool off.

After the run I met up with my girl Camillia and we explored a new area of Dallas called Trinity Groves. I am loving the new restaurant scene in this area! They have lots of fancy new chefs who make speciality cocktails and what not. We went to Sushi Bayashi and got down on their spicy ahi tuna tower. All kinds of awesome.

And yeah, sometimes you have to treat yourself to some chocolate. I am in love with this lady’s chocolate shop. It is more like mini bites of artwork. LOVED the truffle honey and salted caramel! Can’t wait to go back.

Sunday I went to church and then a run/hike reunion with some of my favorite runner girls! I have not done some miles with these ladies in forever. We just did a few very easy miles talking and catching up on life and such.

That night I had a date night at home with the man friend…dinner and a movie…oh and I bought myself a new welcome mat! I am trying to spruce up my apartment a bit! Yes it is very colorful.

  1. That pool water though… awesome. And I’m still totally waiting to get that “I could run forever” feeling and run over 20 for fun 🙂 haha. Hope you have a fabulous week!

  2. That mat is too cute! And I love that you somehow accidentally almost tacked on another mile to your 20 miler. When I run 20 miles I’m pretty much just watching my Garmin for the last two miles. Love that you’re at a place with your endurance that you can do that. 🙂 Have a wonderful Monday, my friend!

  3. I love that you just got carried away. I am more like, “UGH… are we almost there?” Sometimes the mental breakdown comes in around mile 17. I mean, I haven’t trained for a marathon in over a year. I still am not adjusted after that ankle injury last Oct. I’ll get there.

    Wonderful run and I love that you met up with some fab runners for a trail run the next day. 🙂

  4. Love the pics from your run! It looks like you had some great scenery to keeonyohvebtertsined for your long run. Congrats on crushing your 20-miler!

    I didn’t have any somebody-pinch-me-because-this-is-too-good-to-be-true food over the weekend, but I did have some pretty tasty chocolate dipped pretzels at a “party”.

  5. Sounds like a good weekend! I went skating at a birthday party for one of my friends daughters, I helped the kids sing at church and watched the new N.W.A. movie! It was an awesome time!
