20 Miles, Chandelier Love and Wknd Recap.

Happy Monday! I got in my run today as well as some coffee. It was tough to get up this morning but running with friends makes it all better! So I have to say I am a happy camper.

So this past weekend I did my first 20 mile run of the training season! I have a couple of marathons to knock out before the end of the year so I am ramping things back up. As you know down south we have been getting hit with a ton of rain so Saturday was pretty much a downpour. Because of this I was basically ready to call it a day by about mile 18. Jumping through puddles and mud was not really all that fun! But I have some awesome runner friends who would not let me. I’m so thankful for them for motivating me to get it done!

After the run I got some good stretching in with a little yoga at the brewery. Getting my namaste on before sipping on a mango IPA…sheer heaven.

Followed up with some awesome lunch at this new place, Pie Tap. We ordered a bunch of items for the table. That prosciutto pie with arugula on top was quite delicious I have to say.

The next day…fabulous recovery miles and all smiles with a sky that resembles artwork. Love.

And mama daughter day…my mom is actually doing real estate now and I joined her for her 2nd ever open house. It was actually so fun! I love going into people’s houses and just kind of looking around especially when the house is furnished. I have a thing for chandeliers.

Cheers to yet another 60+ mile week of running last week. It feels good to get some more high (for me) mileage in.

  1. I can’t imagine that it’s hard for you to wake up. I picture you springing out of bed, doing a few Kenya twirls and lacing up! Running in the rain! That is true grit.
    Best wishes to your mom in real estate. My niece-in-law is writing the real estate exam soon.

  3. you’re putting me to shame! i was planning on marathon training for an early October race but it’s been SO hot and humid here and i haven’t been able to do the long runs, so 20 miles sounds ridiculous to me right now. great job! ps also love chandeliers!
