TGIFriday Faves.

Hey there! It’s Fri-YAY and I’m here with some favorites today! I started this day with some glorious miles in my ‘hood.

It was an especially beautiful sky!! Maybe because it is Friday the 13th?! Spooky.

Let’s get to this week’s faves!

Advice for runners of all ages from a 71 year old world-record holder. Great stuff here. It is all about the mental.

This new local coffee shop is everything. It is the little things I tell ya. Also if you are a coffee lover you should be following the hashtag #coffeeaddict on IG. It has all of the coffee lover’s porn and I am so here for it.

I could literally look at pictures like the above all day. I am starting to think I have a problem. haha.

Apple Cider Punch!? Fall in a glass. I am ALL IN.

Also I am thinking that I need a new door/welcome mat for fall. This one is just perfect.

And there you have it! Have a marvelous weekend.

What’s on tap for your Friday the 13th and/or weekend?
Lotsa running, and maybe buying a pumpkin candle or 5.

TGIFriday Faves.

Happiest of Fridays to you! Hope you have some fun in the sun planned for the weekend. It is shaping up to be another HOT one down here in Texas!! I’ve got lots of running, pool time and fun on the agenda. Definitely trying to squeeze out the last bits of summer while I can!

Although every day I dream of pumpkin. And the State Fair. I’m counting down the days til the start of crisp air and FALL LEAVES. Yaaas.

Let’s get to this week’s faves!

-My coffee of choice this week – Americano. Honestly I am slowly getting away from things like lattes and just going for black coffee and/or espresso. You know, it’s like I just want to get straight to business with the caffeine lately! No wonder all of my running buddies call me the COFFEE QUEEN.

Inspiring reads for post race recovery. Lots of good selections on there. I want to read more ultra-runner stuff. I’m actually still working my way through Scott Jurek’s Eat & Run.

If you like EDM and/or dance type of music (hey what can I say I am a white girl at heart) this is a GREAT station to keep you rocking and rolling and knocking out work all day long. Believe it. Yes, I have CRAZY variety of music tastes. Or, just pull up a Weds Spin Playlist of mine. That will keep you going too,

-I am nail obsessed lately and finding all of the IDEAS on Pinterest. This is not good honestly because the more I get into nail stuff the harder it is to type on my keyboard and do normal things. Like dishes. Haha. The things we do for beauty.

-And this. Gotta have a little bit of Friday humor.

Have a great weekend!

What’s on tap for your weekend? Any last chance summer fun??
Can’t wait to be back at the pool in the sunshine.

TGIFriday Faves.

Happy Friday to ya! I got my day started with a marvelous Friday LONG RUN. The sunrise was simply splendid! Feeling good, feeling great.

Let’s get to this week’s faves!

Ultrarunning helps keep her going – that one almost brought me to tears. Wow.

For some reason I was playing Beyonce on repeat during my run this morning? I actually love this song – need to get that throwback on the spin cycle playlist. But I’m not even really a Beyonce super fan like that! But sometimes you just need a little bit of that in your life if you know what I mean.

This chart. SO MUCH TRUTH.

And also this. IS THERE (really) SUCH A THING as Yoga wine?!? Someone look that up for me please and thank you.

That’s all for this week! Have a wonderful long holiday weekend.

What’s on tap for your Labor Day weekend?!
Run time, friend and fam time, and getting my hair done. I’m fancy, huh?! Yes.

TGIFriday Faves.

Hey there and happiest of Fridays to you! The sun is shining here and I am feeling pretty good!! Definitely ready for some fun this weekend. Oh, the sunrise was quite lovely too on the run this morning.

Let’s get to this week’s faves!

8 new rules of summer hydration It’s really amazing how important electrolytes have been on the run for me lately. I will do an electrolyte drink or even salt tabs and that is just the thing that gets me though these long runs in the heat and humidity.

I’ve gotten so many compliments on my summer nails. Honestly I used to be strictly a french manicure gal but changing up my nail color has been a game changer. So fun.

Mismatched bikini tops + bottoms. So fun to mix and match and be colorful.

Getting my monthly mileage game back up. 290.6 miles total of running last month!! Habanero 50k I am so coming for you.

Happy Friday!

What’s on tap for your weekend?
Friend time, run time, fun in the sun.

Hey there and happy Friday to ya! Hope you have a fantastic weekend planned. I got my morning started with a 20.1 mile run before the workday. Feeling quite productive at the moment! I had to start EARRRRLY early though. But so glad to get that run done before some fun festivities this weekend. It was a HOT run for sure as the sun came out blazing but finished feeling good.

Let’s get to this week’s faves!

Equifax settlement – go get your money!! Apparently you can get $125 check in the mail if you were affected by the breach. I actually checked on the site and it looks like I was! FREE MONEY baby. I will take it.

Can I just tell you this was one of the busiest, most hectic work weeks I’ve had in quite some time. (AND my vacation days re-UP in August! Woohoo counting down the days) But I’ve been running like a maniac and so thankful for the miles! Thankful for social runs with good pals to get me through this life.

Post 20.1 mile run EATS. Cuban chicken fresh off the grill, beans and rice, mango salsa. Plantains. AMAZING.

And finally this. Fridays are especially good for laughing.

Have a great weekend!

Pool party, friend’s birthday shenanigans, plus running of course.

Hey there and happiest of Fridays to you! The sun is shining bright here and it is shaping up to be quite the balmy day! I was able to get in some double digit miles this morning. Always a lovely way to start the weekend.

Now I am poolside ready.

Let’s get to this week’s faves!

Avocado toast. Oh yes, my new fave breakfast. Also, why don’t I do sriracha and eggs more often? That combo truly rocks my world.

OK…”ROZAY” (my favorite new way to spell it- after my friend spelled it this way on accident in a text) in a bag. You guys this is so perfect for the pool. Also, it says on the front “You Are Marvelous”. Bring it to your next social run. Everyone will love you.

3 running recovery strategies from around the world. Thai yoga…I need to get into that. Side note I’ve been doing lots of yoga in my living room lately post run. Definitely feeling the difference.

Tropical Moringa Endless Moisture Restorative Spray. So good for those summer curls. Love the all natural look for summer.

That’s all for today!! Have a marvelous Friday.

What’s on tap for your weekend? Anyone doing a hot summer race!?

Hey y’all! (Yes, imagine me saying that in the most Texan of accents) Happy Friday! Hope you have some fun planned this weekend. I kicked things off with this majestic beauty of a Friday RUNrise. It was a good run for sure and of course having girl talk while running makes things all the more better. Thankful for running buds.

Let’e get to this week’s faves!

Summer skincare essentials for runners. I’ve tried those lavender wipes they are everything.

24 budget friendly recipes for summer. Eyeing those key lime strawberries.

Iridescent nails. This will probably be my next nail color. Obsessed.

Unicorn floatie for the pool. So basic right? Basically I need one though. Like right now.

Have a great weekend!

Long running / 50k training, likely brunching, working on my tan.

Happy FUN Friday to ya!! Hope you had a lovely July 4th and are coming up on an even better weekend!! I definitely have some fun planned up my sleeve. But first let’s get to this week’s faves!

All things off the shoulder. I will be wearing stuff like this all freaking summer long. Believe it.

My brand new SUMMER scent. Onyx by Sage. I have been getting compliments on it nonstop. Just love it.

Western States 100 Victory. Can you imagine BLACKING OUT during a race!?!? Wow. Crazy determination right here.

Watermelon season is back. Just love this, it is probably my favorite thing to eat by the pool for summer.

Have a great weekend!

Pool time, fun time, run time, all the time.

Hello and happy Friday! I definitely kicked things off in a grand fashion this morning with this lovely RUNrise. It was a great run indeed.

Long Friday miles- always better with friends.

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

My new meditation app! I absolutely love listening to some Headspace before bed. It’s good stuff. Plus, it reminds me to start getting ready for bed at a certain time of night. I kind of like that…unless I am on a date or happy hour or something. Ha.

Finding a gift card to the HAIRSTYLIST in my purse the other day! That I completely forgot about. So you know where I am headed this weekend. After running, of course.

How much do you need to hydrate to go the distance? Good tips here.

Hibiscus margarita for the win.

Have a great Friday!

Running, pool time, fun times. I heart summer.

Well hello Friday! Nice to see you again. It will without a doubt be a good weekend full of running, friends and fam, rest and relaxation! Simply cannot wait.

Let’s get to this week’s faves!

-I am loving the new patriotic Launch 6 kicks from Brooks! Speaking of which I’ve totally got to get my 4th of July gear ready. Probably will be doing a long run then at the pool with friends all day on that day. These would be a great buy.

Things to keep in mind if you want to be a better conversationalist. Love this. And also love the name of the blog. Ha.

Best long run hydration habits. Basically need to keep this on my refrigerator. Especially because the humidity on these Texas runs (plus we are in TRIPLE digit temps already) insane.

-My new swimmy suit from Shein. I’m obsessed with all of the bright colors right now. Really need to order this in every color.

And there you have it! Have a great Friday.
