Hello Fall, Sweet Spot and Wknd Recap.

Hiya there! Hope your Monday is going great! BTW it feels awesome outside…finally sorta feels like fall in Texas! Today is a little crazy in my world but I thought I’d stop in for a quick update from the weekend. Let’s recap!


It’s actually pretty funny because looking back on my previous weekend recaps I noticed I usually always start my recap with Saturday as opposed to Friday night? I’m actually not sure how much you care about my Fridays though because honestly they are so freaking uneventful. They usually consist of me being in bed by like 7 or 8 pm since I get up so early on Saturday morning to run. Hashtag the life of a distance runner during marathon training season. I kind of love it though.


So fast forward to Saturday morning I was up early for a 14 mile run in the ‘hood. Quick cutback week before I ramp back up to my last 20 miler of the training season. It was crazy humid, but not as hot thankfully since we started around 5 a.m. Got it in and it felt good to get this run out of the way.


Post run eats…acai bowl with kiwis and bananas on top. I’m experimenting with different fruits. This is one of my favorite acai bowl combos so far.


Saturday night I stayed out way too late with friends so I slept in and went out for a lunch run after the rain. So thankful for the rain we’ve had lately because it is really cooling things off. Finally I think fall is paying us a visit down in Texas. 10k Sunday.


61.4 miles last week and I’m feeling like I’m in my sweet spot for weekly mileage. I may try to max out at 70 something miles again this training season before the Marine Corps Marathon in October. Then I have a couple of smaller races to knock out before the Dallas Marathon in December. Oh yeah baby! Fall and winter racing season is the absolute best.


How was your weekend? Are the leaves changing in your neck of the woods?
Haha…barely. We still have a lot of green down here.

  1. Your acai bowl looks delicious! Kiwi is a recently new obsession of mine – love making Kiwi infused water! Super tasty 🙂

  2. I’m with you on low-key Fri nights (and jealous of the 8pm bedtime!) — Ty and I usually just stay in and get food and try to crash around 10 to get up early to workout also. Fridays are meant for chill time at this stage in our lives! 🙂 Love acai bowls as well and I’ve been making them myself several times a week lately, buying the organic frozen bases and blending with soy milk, or even adding those to smoothies. Amazingness.
