16 Miles, The Music Run and Wknd Recap.

Hello there! I am dancing at my desk after drinking coffee and getting the day started right! Hope you all had a marvelous weekend!

Yes, looking a little bit like Ashley from The Real Housewives of Potomac. Minus the wild curly hair.

Let’s do a quick recap…and yes it will be a super quick one. Busy Monday over here.

I am ramping the miles back up once again for a few races coming up this spring…so Saturday I set out for a 16 miler with my Irving Running Club clique. It was also my friend Valerie’s very FIRST 16 mile run! A bunch of us will be running the Irving Marathon, and a couple will be running their first 26.2. So it was great to share some miles with them.

We had a few bluebonnet sightings…took some pics, stretched it out and drank a couple of mimosas after. It was a good day.

The sun came out a little bit later and I had a 5k to run that night…The Music Run out in Fair Park. Beautiful sunset with the massive ferris wheel.

This race was sponsored by 24 Hour Fitness, which is the gym that I work for…so I was lucky enough to score a free entry. It was also an untimed/non competitive race which was cool because I wanted to just enjoy it and represent the gym. All for the love of the run. 🙂

The course goes thru several zones of different genres of music which was fun. I enjoyed the Hip Hop zone of course because they were playing lots of Flo Rida. Haha.

I was so happy because the course was flat and fast and although I ran on some tired legs I felt pretty good the entire way. I still did time myself, and I was able to keep it all under an 8 minute pace which I wasn’t sure if I could do. Woot woot!

Sunday was a pretty chill day and I was able to sleep in a bit because of daylight savings. I’m usually not very good at sleeping in but my body really needed the wonderful rest! I waited til the afternoon and then did an hour long run with a couple of my buddies.

Later on I caught up on some tv and watched a little bit of Kocktails with Khloe. Yes…of course, they would spell cocktails with a K. Has anyone seen this show? I actually think she is my favorite Kardashian (if I had to choose one…lol) she is actually pretty funny and makes a decent talk show host. I love my trash tv/mindless guilty pleasures.

How was your weekend? Did you get some long running in?

  1. had to pass on my long run this weekend…had to work through the night Sunday night until 6 in the morning or so, which left me wiped out, so just ran short to keep the run streak going. One weekend without a long run shouldn’t hurt too much. Sounds like another great weekend for you…nice on that 16 miler – right back to where you left off before the 50K!!

  2. I have missed my long runs the past two weekends from judging. I will just count yours as mine and not feel guilty lol – I have seen so many good things about Khloes new show but havent watched yet… Might be my new jam 🙂
