25 Miles, Super Bowl Sunday and Wknd Recap.

Hello and happy Monday to you! It would not be the day after Super Bowl Sunday without a Beyonce gif…right? Right.

Hope you had a marvelous weekend and were able to do all of the fun and relaxing things. I ran all the miles…soaked up some sunshine and am more than ready for this 50k in a few short weeks!! Bring on the ultra already.

This weekend I was able to get some good mileage in…since the New Year’s Double I wasn’t sure If I’d be able to run another 20 miler but typically 3 weeks out I do my longest run. 25 miles total on Saturday morning.

I got creative and ran 20 super duper early before my 5k at 10 a.m. Nothing like a 20 mile warm up. HAHA.

So yeah…legs were tired but I went ahead and ran the Dash for the Beads 5k afterwards. I love this race mostly because Mardi Gras is one of my favorite holidays! The start line was jammin’ and people always get really into it.

This course is also one of the hilliest 5ks in Dallas, winding around the hills of Kessler Park in Oak Cliff. It’s challenging but I really do enjoy it. I finished at a solid pace and was quite proud…thank you strong legs.

And I have no idea how or why but they totally jacked up my name on the race results. Not going to lie I was kind of a diva and pretty upset that this happened but…sometimes you just have to laugh things off and let it go. I guess. It’s just a 5k! I did get 3rd place in my age group so happy happy joy for that.

I finished up with some recovery miles and made it to 25 for the day.

Aside from that my weekend was quite chill. Went to a birthday party, church then Sunday I did 9 miles in my ‘hood.

Followed by some Super Bowl celebrating and mimosa drinking. Perfect way to wrap up a weekend of running and gunning it.

Yeah, this was definitely me during the Super Bowl. The halftime show was rockin’ though! I loved the mix of Coldplay, Bruno and Beyonce. So diverse.

And I got some meal preppin’ in as usual. Purple and orange sweet potatoes for the win. I also riced and roasted some cauliflower in the oven so I’ll be having that for dinner with chicken tonight.

  1. Halftime was the only thing Super Bowl that I watched!! I did get to see most of the game through all the recaps this morning in the news though!! Enjoy your Monday!!

  2. Ahh! What an awesome weekend! Really sweet miles and geez, what a time after your run! You’re ready for that ultra, for sure.
    Sounds like you had fun watching the superbowl, too. 🙂

  3. You are SO ready for your ultra!!! I really want to do an ultra soon but don’t know if I have the actual time to commit to one yet. Maybe once the kids are a little bit bigger….

    I caught the halftime show. Lili just went down to sleep. If I let her stay up, it would have been a bad night for her. LOL

    Hope you have a great Monday!! You are AMAZING.

  4. great job! you’re such a strong runner. love mimosas, def had some with the man on Saturday (sitting on my couch, b/c leftover champagne from NYE still!). we did watch the Superbowl…okay so part of it, while making dinner and basically just waiting for commercials and half time. i love Coldplay and thought Bruno was fantastic but the Beyonce part was just meh for me. i don’t think i’m as big of a fan as everyone else.

  5. Great attitude about your name being wrong. I have to say, I would have been a little upset too after all that hard work. But as you said, you just have to laugh some things off and carry on.
    I loved that half time mix of artists as well. Was fun to watch!

  6. Great weekend of running as always…20 mile warmup before a 5K race, awesome!! SB was a sleeper as far as we were concerned – it was alright and we had it on in the background but didn’t pay it much attention this year. Guess, we’ve enjoyed being spoiled with our ‘Hawks being in it the past couple years, so just wasn’t the same! Next year!
