TGIFriday Faves.

Hey there! Hope you are having a marvelous Friday so far! Let’s get into my favorites from this week, shall we?

-A 12 mile early morning run this week with crazy colors in the sky. Crazy beautiful that is.

-Sparkling Italian water from one of my favorite places. I am simply hooked! It fact I think I will have some more today.

9 things that runners can only say to other runners. Yes, yes and yes some more.

-Dates stuffed with goat cheese. Bake then serve, done! Good gracious they are scrumptious. I have my neighbor to thank for making me these.

That’s all for this week! Have a great weekend.

What are you up to this weekend?
Long run fun, Beyonce yoga (yes it will be as amazing as it sounds), Easter celebrating with the famalam.

TGIFriday Faves.

Hey there! It’s Friday, and I’ve got my coffee. So clearly all is good in the world. Hope you have a fun weekend in store! I definitely do. Running, yoga, and plenty of time outside enjoying the sunshine is on tap!

Let’s get to the Friday faves, shall we?

-Enjoying my runs this week in my new Brooks Ghost 9s. Yes, I am on a quest to get these shoes in just about every color.

-Frozen mimosas? How genius is this idea…please someone sign me up. I’ll meet you with one of these on the patio.

-Discovering new coffee shops in my ‘hood. Society Coffee is where it’s at. Can we please just put fancy coffee shops inside of every gas station now? Specifically with kombucha on tap as well? Thanks in advance.

-Spending a little more time with the kettlebells as of late. Yes, all I need in life is kettlebells and coffee. Okay, and maybe a run. Guilty as charged.

-And this, because shenanigans are wonderful. That is all.

Have a great weekend!

What are you up to this weekend? Doing anything fun in the sun?

TGIFriday Faves.

I don’t know about you but it’s Friday and I’m feeling like that surely calls for a celebration! Hope you have some fun in store for your weekend!

Let’s recap this week’s faves!

-Bell pepper nachos. This made for a fun little dinner project for me this week. They actually turned out fantastic! The more goodness you add in there the better. I made these vegetarian style but you can add chicken or turkey too. They are also amazing with goat cheese and/or avocado!

The secret language of runners. Oh my goodness. It’s like they think they know me or something.

-This runner’s must do strength workout. I have been all about the planks lately.

-“Coffeeology” from my favorite little coffee shop. Yet some more lango that I speak very well.

-Spring and summer sundresses with fun prints. I just want to wear dresses all day long (when I’m not wearing running clothes, of course)

Queens are born in April…yes, that would be me. My birthday month begins tomorrow and this makes my soul happy.

-Current mood. A beach view and coffee. This will be me on my birthday weekend when we go to Galveston for the Divas race. April 26th is the actual day in case you like to buy presents! I’m just saying.

That’s all for this week! Have a great weekend.

What are you loving about today? Favorite things this week?

TGIFriday Faves.

Happy Friday! Hope you all have some fun in store for the weekend. I have running and relaxation on the agenda, of course! I have some races coming up including a trail marathon and an ultra (WOOT) so lots of miles are being put in at the moment! I am loving it. All about it.

Let’s get to this week’s faves!

-Paint leggings? I kind of want them…they are so super cute.

Create your own wellness retreat at home. Ahh…yes, which reminds me I have a heated foot spa thingy at home that I need to use. Maybe this weekend.

-This ’Mimosa Sundays’ shirt I bought. How cute is this? Me and a friend are doing a wine run/relay on Sunday which will be fun. It will be a mimosa Sunday indeed.

-My pics came back from Rock n Roll Dallas…I am telling you, I usually don’t like my race/running pics but these turned out kinda decent! Thank you Lululemon shorts for making my legs look awesome. Ha. I’ll have to order some pics soon.

Answering the loaded question…’why do you run’? Great read and I can relate. Running is so powerful.

That’s all for this week! Catch you on the flip side.

What are you up to this weekend? Have you ever done a wine run?
Yes, we drink AFTER the run, not during. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been asked this question.

TGIFriday Faves.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day to you!! Another wonderful weekend is upon us. Hope you have a little celebrating in store!

I am running the Rock n Roll Dallas half marathon on Sunday! As most of you know I’ve done this race for several years…actually I ran the inaugural race back in the day! It’s one of my favorite half marathons and thanks to Brooks I’m able to run it again this year.

Let’s recap this week’s faves!

-Chia pudding from Green House Market at the DFA yoga event on Wednesday. I must recreate this stat! It was actually so good and refreshing. It would totally make a perfect on the go breakfast.

The importance of easy run days. Yes, yes and more yes.

20 things that only runners know to be true. 3, 4 and definitely 19.

-I know I never really talk about beauty stuff but I’m absolutely loving Hask Argan Oil shampoo and conditioner. All natural and just makes my hair so happy. Ulta, Target and so many places have it…get you some!

-This, because it’s oh so true.

Have a great Friday!

How are you celebrating St. Patrick’s Day? Are you wearing your green?
But of course!

TGIFriday Faves.

Well hello there! Hope you all are having a wonderful Friday. I am back with my favorites from this week! Very much looking forward to some fun this weekend. I’ll be long running it and doing some St. Patrick’s Day celebrating with friends! Good times.

On to my faves from the week!

Which type of coffee best describes your running personality? Oh goodness…hard to pick just one. I think I’ll have to go with iced.

The cutest pool floats for adults…thank you Pinterest. Yes I am already ready to be by the pool in the hot Texas sun. Hey, you gotta get ready, right? Just give me a watermelon floatie and I’m good to go.

-Crazy beautiful flowers at the end of my 10 mile route the other day. It’s looking like springtime is finally starting to make its way to Texas.

-Fiona Apple…I know, so random, right? I’ve had a crazy obsession with playing her Tidal album all this week after playing around on Spotify. She just makes my inner hippie soul happy.

These leggings below courtesy of Brooks…aside from these crazy colorful ones they are absolutely one of the most comfortable ones that I own. Perfect for both running and gettin’ your stretch on.

-Seeing all of the awesome posts on International Women’s Day the other day. Such an awesome day to celebrate ladies and be supportive of one another.

That’s all for this week! Enjoy your weekend.

What are you up to this weekend? Is it finally starting to look like springtime where you are?

TGIFriday Faves.

Well, we did it…we made it through the work week. Happiest of Fridays to you! Hope you have some fun and relaxation in store, ladies!! (and gents! No I’m not leaving my men out. I know I have some male readers! Ha.)

Let’s get to this week’s faves!

-Hello beautiful bluebonnets. Yes, there was a Texas bluebonnet sighting on my run yesterday afternoon. It was so marvelous. This time of year our state flower starts popping up everywhere and it makes my soul happy. It’s the most wonderful time of the year.

-All of the amazing sunrises (and sunsets) by the water this week. I just wanna play outside in the sunshine all day.

20170301_074045

-Seeing my monthly mileage progress over the last few months. It has literally taken me years to get to this point, ya’ll. Started from the bottom now we’re here. Thank you, strong legs for getting me through.

-Getting excited about fun girls trips I have coming soon. Galveston for a half marathon on the beach in April and we have already rented a condo. Then the Rock n Roll San Diego marathon with my runner girls in June. California always has a place in my heart and I’m ready to get back to run in SoCal! Bring it on.

-And I’m going to end with a quote I am loving this week…so relevant to life! Love it love it. Thanks Goldfish Kiss.

Hi there and TGIF! Hope your Friday is off to a fantastic start. I’m ready for some relaxation, running (shocker), and also fun friend time!

Sheree from RHOA knows what’s up. BTW who has been watching this show lately? So freaking juicy this season.

Let’s get straight to this week’s faves!

-Bright and beautiful colorful leggings courtesy of Brooks Running. Get you some! They are oh so comfortable too…I need them in every design imaginable.

20170216_175046

The importance of self love as a runner. Could not agree more.

Sweet potato nachos! Need to make. Someone have a party so we can share.

-All signed up for the Rock n Roll Dallas Half Marathon. I’ve been doing lots of ultras and longer stuff but honestly I’d like to PR the 1/2 distance this year and have signed up for a few races to get me there. Should be fun.

-A fantastic Wine Wednesday…this week it was merlot. Merlot and a sunset can’t be beat.

Hey there and happiest of Fridays to you! This weekend we are supposed to have some pretty incredible weather. I mean really, 80 degrees!? I’m thinking the pool sounds good right about now! But I’ll settle for brunch and a patio, thank you very much.

Let’s get to this week’s faves!

2017 swimwear…I have my eye on some of these halter top bikinis. WANT.

-Quinoa salads…greek style with lots of cucumbers and red onion. I could eat this all day every day.

20170210_105929

-A stunning sunrise Friday run. I rarely run on Fridays but since I took a rest day earlier this week it was the most perfect day for it. The weather was crisp and cool too. Love.

My new Uplift Crossback sports bra. I need one in every color. Thank you, Brooks Running.

Hey there and happiest of Fridays to you!! I don’t know about you but I’m ready to ride on into the weekend! Let’s talk about this week’s faves real quick, shall we?

Hello sweet new trail AND road shoes from Brooks! I haven’t really discussed this with you all because some things were in the works but I’m happy to announce I am now partnering with Brooks to introduce some exciting new swag!!

img_20170201_194236_237

I can’t wait to share more about this sponsorship. I’m totally already in love with the Ghost 9s and my Pure Grit 5s for the trail. Seriously…like running on clouds.

Mash ups – honey caramel and feta popcorn I found at the Sunflower Shoppe. Talk about snack heaven. It’s quite dangerous really.

20170131_163213

My running totals are in for the month of January. Totally blew right by that 300 mile mark! That’s the most mileage I’ve probably done ever in 31 days. Proud mileage mama over here.

GIFs that accurately explain the necessary evils of foam rolling. Oh yes.

Currently dreaming of beach weather and being able to wear cute bohemian maxi dresses like this one. Tell mother nature to chill out on this cold weather and bring my sunshine back.

That’s all for this week! Next week I’ll have some more fun stories to tell. Catch you on the flip side.

Anyone else ready for some beach weather? Let’s plan a vacation.
