Marathon Maniacs, Running, Trail running, Weekend

Picnic in the Park, Sunday Trail Run and Wknd Recap.

This past weekend was pretty packed and filled with fun!! Long run, good times with friends and even some trail running! Let’s do a quick recap.


Saturday I was up early for a long run…watched the sunrise from start to finish. 14 miles done and 2 weeks til my 20th full marathon! San Diego, I am coming for you. Should be fun, I am feeling great after my 50 miler not long ago and ready to get back on the 26.2 train.


The rest of the day was chill…power nap and then the Irving Running Club had a picnic in the park. Folks kind of went all out and brought lots of goodies. The club itself is VERY diverse so whenever we have food events it’s a international food festival of sorts. Lots of yummies.


Love this crew…the festivities went on into the evening and I was spent at the end of the day.

The next day some of us ventured out to Cedar Ridge Nature Preserve for a Sunday trail run. The trail itself is quite hilly with lots of rocks and roots but made for a great workout. The legs are feeling it at bit today.

Feels so good to get off the beaten path once again.

Some of the crew just doing a little exploring.


After our fun galavanting through the trail it kinda got me pumped up to sign up for some more trail races in the near future! I have my eye on a couple items…will keep ya posted.

How was your weekend? Are you training for any upcoming races?
