TGIFriday Faves.

Hi there!! Happiest of Fridays to ya. Hope you have some fun in the sun planned. We had a bit of rain here but it cooled things down and this morning’s run was quite wonderful!! I don’t think I’ve run when temps were below 85 in quite a while. Welcome to Texas in the summertime. 

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

The rising popularity of fasted running. I like the topic and find it interesting…personally I do this in the morning if I’m running 10 miles or less. Usually it is because I run out of time making myself things in the morning before I hit the door. But, I do think it has its benefits. Not for everyone though. 

-I’ve been looking at a lot of bohemian and décor type of things on Pinterest. I need to figure out how to do the scarf ties like this. Love it.

Let’s be friends if we aren’t already on there by the way!! 

This for my balcony. Does anyone have any good balcony décor tips? I need some lights up so I can have a summer evening party. 

-My “Takin’ it Back to the Old School” playlist that I kind of made up yesterday. I ran with with is playlist this morning and it was so fun. Highly recommended.

Have a great Friday!!

What are you up to this weekend? 

Running, yoga, lot of pool time. The summer usual.

Happy Friday to ya! Hope you have some weekend fun in store. I am excited for another fun weekend filled with pool time, friends and some long running! Also so happy that these past two work days seemed to kind of fly by. I felt like I was playing catch up since we had the 4th off- so I’ve been rocking and rolling at work and then all of a sudden I look up and it is time to go home. And now it is the weekend again! Love when that happens.

Tips to keep your legs loose during road trips. I like the idea of bringing a foam roller on the road to roll things out! I also tend to bring compression socks when I travel. They work wonders for recovery.

-This bag…can someone find it for me? It is so cute and summery. I’m always finding such fun looks on Pinterest.

Spaghetti squash with buffalo chicken? Sign me up immediately.

10 tips for running in the morning as told by gifs. 8, 9, and 10 all the way.

-And this. Winnie the Pooh…my spirit animal.

Have a great Friday!

Tell me what is on tap for your weekend?!

Hey, hello and happy Friday to ya! Hope you have a fun weekend in store. I’ve got lots of running, fun friend time and sun time on the agenda!!

Anyone know what the above dance is called? I thought it was just the shuffle dance but apparently that is not it?? You know I’m not WITH IT like the kids are these days.

Let’s get to my favorite things from this week!

Can training for a marathon make half marathons easier? Good stuff and yes I definitely think so…actually it’s funny because the same is true about running ultras and then going back to run 26.2. It definitely makes it feel like a short jaunt, so to speak. Funny how that happens.

-Party in the back…loving lightweight tops like this one. I’ve been finding all of the good stuff on Pinterest.

Breaking news…athletes love to EAT. Hahaha thanks Strava.

-Posting my favorite pic on IG on summer solstice & #nationalselfieday (yes it’s a thing)…did you participate? This was actually the night after I ran a marathon a while back. I’ve got that 26.2 glow.

Have a great Friday!!

What’s on tap for your weekend? Anyone going on vacation soon?! Or staycation like me. Ha.

TGIFriday Faves.

Happy Friday to ya!!! Hope you are having a lovely day so far. I am ready for some fun friend time, family time (shout out to the papas out there for Father’s Day!) and such. But first let’s get straight to my favorite things/happenings from this week!!!

I’ve been rocking my gold Brooks Running shades all week long. For some reason they just make my soul happy.

10 ways to make cutoffs, PR or beat a rival. LOVE this for trail races. And YES…it is amazing how much time you can waste at aid stations during trail races. I mean the aid stations are just so fun usually! So very easy to get caught up in that. Great read.

The person you really need to marry. I am sure I’ve posted this TED talk before but you guys it is just so amazing. Even if you are married, it is great thing to watch over and over again.

I’ve been rocking this Essie color on my toes and I don’t think I will wear another color ever again. Love.

Feeling nostalgic today (its one of my friends birthdays in the pic) so thought I would post a flashback Friday…ahh college years were the best.

That’s all for this week! Have an incredible weekend.

What’s on tap for your weekend? Are you celebrating Father’s Day with your papa?

Hey, hi and hello! TGIF and all of that good stuff. Hope you have some weekend fun planned. I’ve got some long running, pool time and friend time on the agenda. Should be a good one!!

Let’s get to this week’s faves!

How the strong survive. Yes, yes and yes. Posting this on my wall at work to remember.

-Throwback tracks. I’ve been jamming to Eddie Murphy’s “Party All the Time” and it is officially on my Spotify playlist. And there is nothing you can do about it. Did you know it was a number 1 hit in 1985? I am just saying. Be a hater if you want.

Longevity tips from running experts. I am all about mixing up the training.

-Currently all about the rompers on the weekends. Um. Wouldn’t it be great if we could wear them to work?! I may have to make rompers at work a thing.

-Wine Wednesday with my ladies this week was EVERYTHING. Makes my soul happy.

Have a fun weekend!

What are you up to this weekend?! Tell me all about it!

HAPPY JUNE and happiest of Fridays to ya! I don’t know about you but I have never been so happy to see May come to a close!! Ha. Totally not exaggerating about this fact. Okay, perhaps I am a little. ANYWAYSSS tons of pool time awaits! I cannot wait for long running, brunching and being with amazing run buds this weekend. Much needed.

Let’s get to this week’s faves, shall we?

-Does anyone still read Reddit? I’m super into the running Reddit so if you read it you need to catch up on the annual tips and tricks for summer running thread. You are welcome.

What makes acceleration so important for runners? I actually love accelerations when I teach my spin classes too. Good stuff.

-Yes way rosé. This was probably the best part of my humdrum week. Cheers to life.

-Catching up all week long on Real Housewives of Potomac. It’s getting so good this season. Dare I say better than RHOA? I know that is crazy talk.

-And this, just because it’s funny and true.

Have an amazing weekend!

What are you up to this weekend?! Any fun in the sun?

TGIFriday Faves.

Hello and happy Fri-YAY!! Hope you all have some fun in store for the long luxurious weekend. I’ve got some running, relaxing and fun in the sun planned!! Should be a good time.

Let’s get to my faves from this week!

How music can help you bust your running rut. I still need to look into one of those Garmins with the music built in. Does anyone have one? Please let me know how you like it.

Columbian breakfast at work this week. Those corn patties have queso fresco in them…absolutely delicious. So thankful for the coffee shop/café at work on crazy days.

Rompers rompers all day long…I kind of need this one in my life. Lovely.

Can we talk about how much I want to run a LEGIT mountain race? I’ve had this one on my mind all week this week. I think it will be a 2019 goal.

This. Because it is oh so true. That’s all for now, off to go listen to Luke Bryan.

Have a great weekend!

What’s on tap for your weekend? Anyone running a Memorial Day style race!?

TGIFriday Faves.

Happiest of Fridays to you! Hope you have some fun in the sun planned for the weekend!! I definitely plan on taking advantage of some Vitamin D. It has been absolutely gorgeous here all week long!

Let’s get to my faves from this week!

For my fellow runners, how to set a PR in every decade. YES. Great read.

Free to be serene tank. Yassss loving this color.

This coffee mug for my desk. I need me a pretty glass mug. 

What to eat before and after running according to nutrition pros. I am always all about the protein and savory as opposed to sweet stuff after getting miles in.

That’s all for this week! Hope you have a lovely Friday.

What’s on tap for your weekend?
Yoga, hitting the trails for some running, enjoying the sunshine.

Hello and happy Friday to ya! Hope you have some fun in store for the weekend…let’s cut straight to the chase and get to this week’s faves!

Love the run you’re in – yes…loving all of these thoughts.

This inflatable drink float. Totally needing to get all of my pool goodies ready for summer. It is already like 80 something degrees everyday lately in Dallas.

How to make a healthy-ish margarita for Cinco de Mayo. I’m here for it.

-And speaking of summer…this sign rings true. So so very true. Thanks Pinterest.

Have a marvelous weekend!

Anyone celebrating Cinco de Mayo?

TGIFriday Faves.

Hey there and happy Friday to ya! The sun is shining here for now in Dallas and I am just loving it! I’m ready for some brunching this weekend, running, and of course counting down the days till my birthday (April 26th) so I will be celebrating for the next week straight. Gotta love it.

Let’s get to this week’s faves!

-Right now I’m reading a busy woman’s spring cleaning guide for a total home refresh. The surface cleaner with essential oils sounds interesting – I think I need to try it.

-This Janelle Monae video – just because it is so darn catchy. The song is not brand new but it is still a bop. And YES bop is my new favorite word. Get on board.

Why running is my meditation. Could not agree more.

-Getting pampered all week leading into my birthday…I got to get my hair done, a blowout for free last night thanks to Yelp Dallas. Yaaaas. Love love love.

-A beautiful morning run this a.m. accompanied by this colorful view. Heaven.

And that is all for this week!! Have a marvelous Friday.
