TGIFriday Faves.

Cheers to Friday! Hope you are having a wonderful day so far. I’ve got lots of fun planned this weekend – some trail running at this race, brunching and a whole lot of kicking back!! Simply cannot wait.

Let’s get to this week’s faves!

Simple southwest tofu scramble. I had something similar to this at our trail run breakfast last weekend (one of the vegan runners made it) and I was instantly hooked. Did not miss the eggs at all! I may have to do some experimenting and make some this weekend.

-My ‘happy camper’ coffee mug. Just because it is cute and colorful and makes me blissful.

This ‘Everything But the Bagel’ seasoning from Trader Joe’s. Seriously, put it on everything. Veggies, potatoes, the possibilities are endless.

4 practical tips for powering through a long run. Good stuff here. Appreciate the journey.

-My unicorn bracelet! Yes one of my friends had a unicorn birthday happy hour the other day and it was the best. I think the bracelet is giving me all kinds of superpowers and good mojo.

What’s on tap for your weekend?

Happy Friday, TGIF, good vibes and all of that jazz! Hope you had a marvelous week. This weekend will be a good one as I’ll be running, brunching, and YES the State Fair of Texas!! I am so flipping excited. Let’s do a secret handshake to celebrate. This one’s just between you and me.

Perfect. Let’s get to this week’s faves!

14 hilarious spectator signs to make for race day. 6, 8 and 13. Hands down.

-Dried kiwi. I have a feeling these may become long run fuel. A coworker let me try these this week and now I’m obsessed. Must track them down pronto.

11 surprisingly chic Halloween décor ideas. Pineapple jack o lantern? Genius.

The absolute best gifts for introverts. The ‘go away’ welcome mat LOL. I think I’m a little bit of both introvert and extrovert since I’m an only child. But that welcome mat is a must have.

-Spiced butter rum coffee. I have been obsessed with this coffee post run at Java Me Up. Gotta get more soon.

Yes! It’s funny because it’s true.

Have a great weekend!

What are you up to this weekend? Have you carved a pumpkin yet?
It’s on my to do list.

Hello and TGIF to you! I definitely am ready to have some fun free time this weekend. My weekend is going to consist of some running, playing with friends and brunch time!!

Let’s get to this week’s faves!

-The fact that my fall/winter race calendar is quickly filling up. I am running this Oktoberfest 50k trail run, the Rock n Roll San Antonio half (Thanks to Brooks Running!!) and then the BMW Dallas Marathon 26.2 in December! It feels good to get back to running shorter races again. Well, anything feels short after running 100 miles. HA.

Campfire proof mugs. I want these in every color!! Love love.

10 reasons NOT to run trail marathons and ultras. HAHA. Cracking me up. My feet will never be the same.

12 celebrities running the NYC marathon. Kind of a fun fact thing to know. My NYC marathoner readers, please take pics if you have a celeb sighting.

-Lunchtime running this week. It felt so good to get miles in again on my lunch break. Loving these Brooks Running Pure Flows.

That’s all for this week!

Bonus points if you remember where the above gif is from.

What are you up to this weekend? Is anyone else running a fun festive fall race?

Happy Friday AND it is National Coffee Day!! If that is not a reason to have a celebration then I don’t know what is. Hope your day is getting off to a good start. I’m looking forward to running, brunching it and perhaps a little yoga this weekend!

Let’s get to this week’s faves!

-Getting the legs moving again this week after my win at the Piney Woods 100k. Feels good to be bouncing back and hitting the ground running. I’ve also signed up for the BMW Dallas Marathon in December so lots more happy miles to come.

Maple honey crisp margaritas!? Wowzers. Sign me up.

Energy punching pumpkin bars. Yum. Must make these pronto.

8 useful running hacks. All about that.

Hello there and happy first day of FALL!! This is without a doubt my most favorite time of year. Give me cooler weather, give me pumpkin flavored things, give me SCARVES!! Ahh I just love it. I know, I am so basic. But fall is just where it’s at.

I am definitely looking forward to some fun this weekend! I am road tripping it to East Texas for this wonderful trail race with good buds! Can’t wait to be immersed in amazing nature.

Let’s get to this week’s faves!

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

3 key hill workouts that will improve your running. I don’t know about you but I kind of like hills and suffering on them? Call me a glutton for punishment. It just makes the run that much more rewarding when its over. Plus it makes you a stronger runner hands down. So DO THEM.

-Crazy clouds in the sky on my Monday morning run this week. Getting up early on a Monday for some miles, hashtag so worth it.

36 websites that will change your life. I need to bookmark the ‘do nothing for 2 minutes’ one.

-A snazzy Yelp event outing this week to Cedars Social. This cheese board makes my soul happy.

That is all for this week! Have an amazing weekend!

Definitely running and my fave the Grapefest wine festival with friends – bring it on!

Mediterranean sweet potatoes? Sign me up. Cool spin on one of my favorite foods.

Running acronyms to know. Brush up on your lingo.

Is social media helping or hurting your running? Love it. That is real talk right there.

Friday Friday Friday! Time to do a little long weekend happy dance. Who is with me?

Let’s get to this week’s faves!!

Hitting a whopping 414 miles in the month of August. HOLY CRAP!! I am one proud mileage mama. High mileage hard work pays off and I am so ready to rock the 100k in September. Also I am so ready for fall weather it is not even funny. It is getting cooler though in the mornings which I love.

There is just something about doing sunset runs lately (I am still a bonafide morning runner, morning runs FTW) but especially after a stressful work day. Running is like my pint of Ben and Jerry’s in the evenings. HA. I just love it.

This Grenache red wine from Times Ten Cellars. It’s like heaven in a bottle. If you’re local to DFW check them out, you will fall in love.

Yoga with Adriene. Do this post run yoga stretch and thank me later.

My peaceful runs on the trails. Can’t wait to get back out there this weekend.

That’s all for this week! Have a great Labor Day holiday!!

What are you up to this weekend?
Trail running, long running, yoga, followed by lots of R & R.

Happy Friday and hope you’re having a good one so far! I am ready to enjoy some of the somewhat cooler weather here in the Dallas area!! Running and relaxing are surely on the agenda.

Let’s get to this weeks faves!

-A few evening runs on double run day this week enjoying pretty skies. Although it has been quite muggy this week I am starting to enjoy some nice miles after the busy work day.

-Very excited about the new hydration vest I’ll be getting in the next few days. Fashionable, right?!  LOL. I have always loved my Dora the Explorer hydration backpack but I’ve decided to switch it up. Can’t wait to rock it on the run soon.

New trail shoes for spring/summer 2018. I’ve always loved Brooks Pure Grit but now eyeing those Mazamas.

-Simply hammock obsessed. How pretty is this look I found on Pinterest? I need to recreate it soon.

-Americanos from the café at my job this week all week long. Espresso, I do love you so.

That’s all for this week! As for my friends down in south Texas, be safe with this weather…sounds like Harvey will be no joke. Thankful we are too far inland up here to be affected. Yes, driving to south Texas is basically like going to another state. Everything is bigger down here.

What’s on tap for your weekend?
Running (of course) and lots of relaxation time.

Can I get a high five for Friday? Y’all I am so ready for the weekend and to let my hair down after a busy work week. Let the running and brunching begin!

Let’s get to this weeks faves!

Parmesan zucchini. Oh so simple and oh so delicious. Love me some crispy fresh veggies.

The simple technique that will help you run longer. Oh yes, it’s all about the breathing for sure.

-The fact that my absolute guilty pleasure The Real Housewives of Dallas is back on Bravo. It’s just so awful and so good at the same time.

The Fast As Light Muscle tank. Love this. I know it would look good with my new lululemon energy bra. Anything to keep cool in these hot summer months of training.

-Still loving my Brooks Uplift Crossback sports bra. It offers such great support and you simply cannot beat the hot colors. Love.

-Last night’s sunset after the rain. Simply amazing hues in the sky.

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