TGIFriday Faves.

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.

Hey there happy Friday! Hope you have some fun in store for your weekend. I am looking forward to getting some running in and fun with friends!! Plus the weather will actually be decent this weekend. This morning’s run was pure perfection! I love the sneak peek of springtime temperatures. THANK YOU, Texas. You are there real MVP.

Let’s get to this week’s faves!

Bringing the curls back this week. The weather has been so pleasant that I just couldn’t help myself. Actually it was funny the other day cuz I was all set on wearing my hair straight but my hair was all rebellious on some “nah Imma do me” type of situation. So I just let it do its thing. Wild and free.

Runners – How to find your perfect training strategy. Yes to all of this.

I am digging the new Cardi/Bruno track?! Sorry not sorry. It is a BOP.

RHOBH is back! And I am here for all of it. Beverly Hills is probably my favorite of all of the housewives just because I feel like they are truly housewives! That and I just love all of the fashions and ritzy things. A girl can dream.

And there you have it! Have a wonderful Friday.

What’s your weekend looking like? Any fun in store?

Happy Friday to ya! Hope you have some fun plans for the weekend. I was able to get up and get in a rather CHILLY run!! It was 25 degrees out, y’all! Yes, in TEXAS! Talk about a cold snap. If you’ve been reading you know we have some serious up and down temperatures lately! Just wow. Nice sunrise this morning though while I listened to a podcast.

Let’s get into this week’s faves!

The best gloves to wear while running. I definitely could have used some of these for this morning’s run. Especially the ones with wind protection.
Wine walk night with my ladies!! We had so much fun and it was a nice little break from the hustle and bustle of the work week. Basically you pay $10 for a glass and they give you checklist of stores on the block to go into and you shop while you sip. And it happens once a month. Love love.

This OPI color – “It’s Sheer Luck”. Very natural yet shimmery and girly. Love.

Run safe in the dark – LED beanies!! Now that I can get behind.

That’s all for this week! Hope you have a marvelous weekend.

What are some of your faves this week?

Hello and happy Friday to ya! Hope you have some fun planned. We’ve got a little rain in the forecast but mostly we are in for some pleasant temps!! So I’m excited for that.

Ahh yes, take a look at that below. Sorry for you Chicagoans and other peeps dealing with the winter weather. Just another reason why I love living in Texas. Yeah I’m rubbing it in just a bit.

Let’s get to this week’s faves!

What runners should know about the North Pole Marathon. Insane. Could you imagine running across the frozen Arctic Ocean?! That is major craziness right there.
This chalk art at a winery I went to on my Monday off with friends in town. So fun. I have to go to downtown Grapevine and explore more often.

Jalapeno Popper Dip from What’s Gaby Cooking. I may have to make this happen for Super Bowl Sunday.
SNOOZE– My new brunch obsession. They’ve been opening up a few of these in the Dallas area. You must go if you’re local.

Winter blooms at the end of a 20.2 mile run this morning. It was a great run…a little rainy but nice chill in the air. Heaven. Fridays are quickly becoming my new Saturday long run days…hmm.

Have a great Friday!

What are you up to this weekend?
More running, friend time, Super Bowl celebrating.

Hi there and happy Friday to you! Hopefully you have some fun in store for your weekend. I am excited to have some relax time, good time with friends and of course running. But let’s get to my faves from this week!

A killer 22 mile run this morning. Honestly Fridays are quickly turning into my new favorite days to run long. It feels so…what shall I say…rebellious haha. Actually the weather tomorrow is supposed to turn crazy cold/rainy/windy so a few of us decided to get up mad early and switch the super long run to today. Super happy I did that. Pow.

4 foam rolling exercises for runners. I’m actually putting this here really as more of a reminder that I need to do it. LOL. Ya know, when I can’t get to my massage therapist and stuff.

California roll in a bowl? I’m feeling it. I bet it would be amazing too with real crabmeat. Hmm…

“You” on Netflix. Don’t spoil it for me because I’m on the 2nd episode but I think I will quickly get hooked to this one. Actually I really don’t like thriller type shows but something about this show makes me feel like I may get hooked. Ha. We shall see.

Have a great Friday!

TGIF to ya! And all that jazz. Hope you have some fun in store for your weekend. I am definitely ready to let loose a bit!! And by “let loose” I mean run, relax and have enough free time to fully clean my apartment. I know, I lead wild lifestyle.

Let’s get to this week’s faves!

-An insane sky after one of my morning 10 milers this week. See above. Heaven.

How to plan a DIY running retreat. I am actually really digging this idea. Great way to get your favorite running buds together and have a good time.

-Speaking of running buds…here is a great site if you are looking for training groups and/or track clubs! The directory on there is pretty massive and it looks like they have a link to the websites of various clubs. Win win.

30 vegan dinners you can make in less than 30 minutes. I’m actually not vegan but I love exploring different foods and some days will make meatless dinners. These are perfection.

-My fridge magnets and photos. Just because they make me happy. Here is just a snippet. Loved getting me meet Sanya Richards Ross many years ago. Such down to earth lady.

Have a wonderful Friday!

Hey there and happy Friday to ya! The sun is shining down in Dallas and I am feeling oh so good!! I hope that you are too. I’ve got some running, Netflix and chillin and other items on the agenda for this weekend! It should be a lovely time.

Let’s get into my faves from this week!!

My adult bevvie of choice this week. Dark cherry cider from Locust Cider (which they now have a tap room in Ft. Worth! Yes). This stuff is dangerously awesome. And hey they say that dark cherries are good for runners so, ya know, that makes this runner girl happy. I’m just saying.

Speaking of Ft. Worth, I love everything about the Japanese Gardens. I went here recently and took a to of pics. Such a peaceful place.

Expressing gratitude can help you run better all year long. I can get behind that.
All of the fun Snapchat filters. How cute are we ringing in the 2019. Love it love it.

And this. Makes me giggle. EXACTLY why I don’t do it. Thanks.

Have a great Friday!
