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.


How was your weekend? What are you looking forward to this week?

  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.

  2. 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!
