TGIFriday Faves.

Hey there and happy Friday! And HAPPY long weekend! Hope you have some lovely things planned. Of course I kicked things off with a 12 mile run this morning. Felt good to get out and get it done. I have another double digit run planned tomorrow as well with friends. Hello breakfast tacos and mimosas after. Oh how I’ve missed you so.

Without further ado let’s get to this week’s faves!

I know yesterday we talked about B.S. (haha- bikinis and sandals) so while we are still on the B.S. – right now I have a fave podcast. Housewives fans- must listen. Weekly Dose of B.S.! Gotta love my Dallas girls Brandi and Stephanie. Fun fact I’ve seen Stephanie’s husband walking my neighborhood lake a few times. I’m too star struck to say hello! Fun though when your favorite TV people are basically your neighbors- so close to home.

The Senita swift shorts. Okay so my real life (and gorgeous) blogger friend Jenna (p.s. Go check out her blog! She’s bomb) mentioned these and I’m totally getting some now. Plus, those prices! Move over lulu, you have competition. 

Practice your balance with these moves. Huge fan of split squats.

Also this just to add a little funny to your Friday. I am meme obsessed.

Have a great weekend!

What’s on tap for your holiday!?!
Running, pool time, a ridiculous amount of sunshine and bliss. You know, the usual.

Hey there! Happiest of Fridays to you!! Hope you all have a fun weekend in store. This morning I stepped out for a Friday long run! Check out that sky. It’s funny because right now I’m not really training for anything immediate – but just kind of felt like running long. All Forrest Gump – like. Ha.

Let’s get to this week’s faves!

Molly Bookmyer. Holy motivation. I mean really what is your excuse now after reading that?? Amazing.

-Hello my name is Chelsea and I am romper obsessed. Also obsessed with this website. So excited to get this in the mail oh so soon.

-Grocery shopping at my favorite place yesterday whilst drinking rose. Yes my neighborhood Whole Foods is basically my new Cheers. I just love it.

-This because it is so me. The more espresso shots the better.

Have a great Friday!

What do you have fun planned this weekend?

Running, fun friend time, maybe hitting up a festival or two. Love this time of year.

Happiest of FRI-YAYs to you! Hope you have some weekend fun in store. I have lots and lots of running (and perhaps a little Cinco de Mayo celebrating) planned! Should be a good one.

Let’s get to this week’s faves!

A run retreat?! Now I could surely get down with that.

Pina colada infused black tea. Goodness gracious this really powered me through my workday yesterday. Plus made me feel like I was in the Caribbean. A win win.

Beyonce’s version of Before I Let Go. Instant mood lifter.

This amazing scent- Endless Weekend. Ladies you must try it as a Bath & Body Works wallflower too. Great for a home scent and great girly scent in general.

And there you have it! Hope you have a beautiful weekend.

Tell me about your faves this week!

HAPPY GOOD Friday!! I got a long run in this morning and I am feeling all of the good feels and endorphin rush feelings. It seriously is amazing how a long run changes your entire outlook on life. I have been in a cloud of weirdness all week. Mood wise. Anyone else? Anyway that is over now all because I ran long. Maybe that is why I am an ultra runner. I like that endorphin rush and want to feel it basically all the time. YAAAS.

I also thought the above Eva the diva from RHOA gif would be fitting there. I just love her also.

Also I am getting oh so excited for the Hachie 50 miler! My 5th 50 mile race is in 2 weeks. Countdown is on!!

Anyway, today is a day for my Friday faves! Let’s get right to it.

Practicing bravery in my sneakers. Love Sabrina Little. She is for sure my ultra runner girl running inspiration.

6 life lessons from the pioneers of women running. Breaking the rules is my jam.

Although my birthday is still a week away (1 WEEK exactly!) I am getting all of these random freebie foodie emails. Don’t you just love that?

Pretty blooms at the end of my 15 mile route this morning. Definitely the icing on my long run cake.

Have a great Easter weekend!!

What’s on tap for your weekend?
More running, celebrating Easter with the fam bam.

Happy Friday to ya! It is a beautiful day in the neighborhood and I am overjoyed for sunshine!! I got in a 20 mile run and that always feels good when you can do it on a Friday, before the workday! So woohoo for that.

I also want to give a shout out to kombucha…and DARK CHOCOLATE ALMONDS. 2 things that are rocking my world this week.

Let’s get to all of my Friday faves!

-20 mile sunrise. I swear lately we have been getting lucky with how amazing the weather is on a Friday. Literal perfection and the sunrises have been quite picturesque. And me and this girl got our miles in. She will be running Hachie 50 coming up too. Love.

Get moving with a spring cleaning workout. OMG taping this to a wall somewhere. Hello super productivity.

My blogger friend’s recipe for my weekend dinner. You had me at scallops, girl.

-This because it makes me giggle. The pollen count has been craaaaazy high in Texas this past week. Pray for me, y’all.

Have a fabulous weekend!!

What’s on tap for your weekend? GOOD LUCK to my Boston runner friends!!

Hey y’all!! (Imagine me saying that in the most TEXAN of accents) Happy Friday to ya! You will have to excuse me because I am riding the runner’s high from my 20.1 mile run this morning. Yep that point 1 is pretty important. Ahh yes, it always feels so good to get it done on a Friday, right? Hope you have some fun weekend plans in store.

Here are some of my faves from this week!

-I am obsessed with everything on SHEIN– has anyone ordered from here? I can’t believe how crazy cheap it is. I want all of the swimwear in every color on there. Especially this one.

Skinny funfetti cake batter dip. Where do I sign up…seriously thinking about making it this weekend.

2019’s best gels, bars and drinks for runners. I may have to look into that Amazing Grass.

-Ya’ll have probably already seen this but I came across it the other day on IG. I love her dad’s coaching skills from back in the day- super cute. Super inspiring for the runs and all of your athletic stuff this weekend.

And there you have it! Have a lovely Friday.

What’s on tap for your weekend?
More running, teaching a class at gym, relax time.

Hey there! Finally Friday!! I celebrated the start of a fun weekend with a 21.3 mile Friday run. Check out those colorful rays.

Let’s get to this week’s faves!

-I guess I’m a little late on this one but I’m loving the HEATED city sidewalks in Holland Michigan. I kind of want to go there now just to run! Never mind that we really haven’t even experienced snow all winter in Texas. But that looks crazy fun.

-In non COLD weather news. Spring is starting to blossom – I am seeing blooms everywhere on the run now. Love love love.

Lululemon speed socks- fun fact I actually am obsessed with their socks and think they are perfect for running. Definitely need to re-up my collection.

-The WILD hair is back for the weekend. I am obsessed with my curls lately. And just letting my curls do their thing. Woohoo for that.

Have a great Friday!

What’s on tap for your weekend?

St. Patrick’s Day celebrating, fun times with friends, brunching. Getting my run on.

Happy Friday to ya! Hope you have a lovely weekend planned!! I started my morning with a long run. Fridays are quickly becoming my most favorite days to run long!! It puts a whole new energy into the day. Love love.

Oh and friendly reminder it is Daylight Savings this weekend!! So set your clocks to SPRING UP for Sunday. Haha…I mean in this day and age we all have cell phones and gadgets that change themselves. But hey, just in case.

Let’s get to this week’s faves!

Use these 5 simple workouts to get faster for spring training! Yaaas to hill repeats!! Oh, and a 20 minute tempo sounds interesting. I will have to look into that.

Lululemon’s Mist Over Windbreaker. NEED. OMG…and that pocket in the back?! Double need.

Bagels and Lox EGG-WICHES?! Why on earth have I never thought of this. Genius. Good party treat.

-And this. Oh so true. MOOD.

Have a great Friday!!

What’s on tap for your weekend?!
Great weather, great friends, more running. Maybe a little productivity. Woot woot.

Happiest of Fridays to you! This post will be short and sweet since it is a rather busy day on this end. But I definitely have some much needed fun in store for this weekend!! Fun mixed with a little bit of relaxation is always my favorite. 

Let’s get to this week’s faves!

Top Running Shoe Picks for Spring. I see Brooks made the list!! I also love Altras more so for trail running but may need to look into some of these. 

Loving this slow cooker black bean chicken chili. This week it has been downright CHILLY in Texas so I’m having to bust the crockpot back out. I love making turkey taco soup in there so adding this to the rotation. 

-Confession I have become somewhat of a race medal hoarder after doing 329784675 marathons over the years. I also need about 5 or 6 racks just to house these things so they’ve ended up in a big box. Anyways I found my last 2 medals from Cowtown (after pacing 50k on Sunday) and they make a pizza pie! From the last 3 years of pacing the marathon and ultramarathon. Fun.

-15 mile Friday run this morning! This was fun running in super cold temps. I had a friend that met me for the last few miles so it was fun having girl talk to start the day. 

That’s all for this week! Be good or be good at it. 

Any fun plans for the weekend? 

More running, breakfast tacos, mimosas…and so on.

Hey there and happiest of Fridays to you! Hope you have some weekend fun in store. Busy day over here so let’s get straight down to business with my Friday faves!

This new Katy Perry/Zedd song. In fact the song is on this week’s spin playlist! But it has been on repeat even on the run. Love it.

My favorite new Bath and Body Works scent. Champagne Toast. The wallflower version of this is incredible. I have this scent in my living room right now.

This crawfish dip was a hit at my mardi gras party. I think I need to make it again just because. Glad I had a little bit of leftovers this week too.

Just the fact that today is National Margarita Day!! Yaaas. Let the church say amen.

And there you have it!! Have a marvelous Friday.

Anyone doing any mardi gras celebrating coming up?
I celebrated early. But I may celebrate again. They do have mardi gras races around here. Oh yeah! And St. Patrick’s Day is fast approaching. Woohoo.
