TGIFriday Faves.

Hey y’all. It is freaking Friday!! I don’t know about you but I need me some weekend. Just some work-free FREE time to unwind and such! Of course I will be getting out for some running. And I’ve got recipes I will be trying in the kitchen! Quarantine and chill style. Trying to make the most of it all.

Let’s get to this week’s faves!

The best virtual cooking classes for every budget. Loving this concept.

How one essential stretch can improve your running. All about this.

Of course I’m all about the virtual happy hours. Already planning the next one.

The highlight of my week was of course getting into the Marine Corps Marathon for the 5th time in a row. Hoping fall marathons will even happen after all of this crazy. At least I will have a 26.2 on deck and be ready.

And here’s your Friday funny. If you’ve not seen Tiger King yet you’d better get to it.

Have a great one!

Do you have any virtual happy hours planned this weekend? What’s your favorite running stretch?

Hey there and happy Friday to ya! Hope you are staying well and running happy!! This has been quite the challenging week for me so I am definitely loving that the weekend is near! It is so close I can taste it.

Let’s get to some Friday faves!

Fun fact, did you know Dr. Anthony Fauci is an AVID RUNNER?! Even after working all of those crazy long hours? I knew I liked him for a reason.

Yesterday’s 10 mile run after work (yes, I’m still having to work since my producer job in TV media is considered an ‘essential business’ – thankfully I keep my office door closed and work from home when I can). It was absolutely soothing to my mind body and soul. Plus I found a ‘LOVE’ fence. Gotta love that.

Friends (and fam) checking up on each other. Oh so needed. Check up on your people y’all. And tell them you love them. Everyday.

Desi Linden on recovering and recalculating.

All of the virtual races!!! I am loving the idea of that. Plus I dig the virtual idea cuz I really love to run alone (blaming my only child/ambivert self) All about it.

Plus of course a little funny for your Friday.

Have a good weekend! Do something that makes your heart smile. and LAUGH. For God sakes. 

I’m going on a hearty long run tomorrow.

Hey there! Happy Friday to ya. Hope you have some weekend plans on deck. Or nah??! You all stay safe and healthy out there!! I know they are canceling races left and right. But hey, we can all still RUN…am I right? Thankful for my health and my strong legs right about now.

Let’s get to this week’s faves!

Lauren Fleshman’s tweet this week! Truth or no?

How to cope if your race gets cancelled due to the CORONA! Reflect and appreciate. Love that.

This is how running impacts your immunity. Great things to always remember. Train smarter, not harder.

My beloved TEXAS BLUEBONNETS ARE BACK!! This my little glimmer of happiness and bliss in this crazy time. I was so excited when I saw the “wildflowers growing” sign on my run earlier this week that this route is quickly becoming a new favorite. And every time I run by this area the flowers just keep getting more and more abundant. Best time of year hands down.

Have a great weekend! Be well.

What’s on tap for your weekend?
Running, all of hydrating, eating my greens. Rinse and repeat.

YES. Baby Jesus is blessing us once again.

Let’s get to my faves this week!

I have a new favorite carrot, ginger, turmeric fresh juice! This place has my heart. I had SO much energy and bliss yesterday. I may have to make this spot a weekly trip.

How to turn FOMO into JOMO. I tell you what ‘jomo’ is kind of my favorite acronym right about now.

How to relieve tight hamstrings. Yes to glute bridges!! Get that rear in gear.

Hello there and happy Friday! Y’all this morning’s run was absolutely EVERYTHING I needed it to be. Sunrise RUNrise vibes for sure. And it is going to feel like springtime all weekend with temps in the 70s. Ohmygoodness. Thank you Texas. Bring. It. On!

Let’s get to this week’s faves!

Gifts for women who are always on the run. I would buy some of these for myself! That wrap bracelet is everything.

Enjoy the process. Could not freaking agree more.

Tyra Banks on The Breakfast Club. Um seriously Tyra has not aged since the Fresh Prince days. Incredible.

Running (shocking, I know) brunching and being in the sun (with sunscreen of course) as much as possible.

Hey there and happy Friday! Hope you have some fun and (maybe sun?!) in store for the weekend. We’ve got some solid weather coming for running, brunching and good times!! It has been a long week of adulting so I simply cannot wait.

Let’s get to this week’s faves!

Tips for getting outside in the morning when it is ridiculously freezing out. Have an early spring GOAL. Yes, that definitely helps. Trail marathon + 50 miler on deck…check.

Vinyasa Scarf. I feel like I kind of need that in my life.

Also, this collapsable bottle. GENIUS.

Savory king cake?! I did a double take.

Hi there and happy Friday! And VALENTINE’S DAY if you celebrate!! I am enjoying the day so far– especially since I started the day with some very chilly miles. The sun came out though and all was well in the world so that made my soul very happy. Oh yes.

Let’s get to this week’s faves!

Sweet texts from my dad which I get on the daily. He is like me in that he thinks every day is a day to celebrate. We are cheesy, I know.

Why athlete’s need a ‘quiet eye’. So very interesting.

What are you wearing? I never really think about that seriously but our running gear does play a crucial role.

Cookies and coffee to celebrate love today. AKA carbo load for tomorrow’s long run.

And there you have it!

Have a great LOVE day!

Happy Friday to ya! Hope you have some fun in store for the weekend!! We’ve had nothing but crazy gloomy weather all week long but just in time for the weekend, here comes the sun. I could not be more cheerful. Well…maybe I could! But I can’t complain not one bit. The sun makes my soul happy.

I mean I even have a tattoo of the sun (fun fact) on my back so the sun making me very happy is to be expected, right?!

Let’s get to this week’s faves!

These roasted baby carrots. And that sauce is everything. Must try pronto.

5 reasons to run outside all winter. I never thought about it strengthening your immune system – I can dig it.

The fact that they’ve already got St. Patrick’s day swag in the store. My favorite time of year (besides my birthday DUH). Freaking bring it on.

And this. I definitely had these on my ceiling. Let’s bring ‘em back.

And there you have it! Enjoy your Friday.

What are you up to this weekend?! Anything fun?

Lotsa running in the sunshine, doing some adulting, and a little playtime.

TGIFriday Faves.

Hey there and happiest of Fridays to ya! Hope you have some FUN planned this weekend. I am in dire need of sunshine! Thankfully this weekend looks to be promising that and more. Simply cannot wait!

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

The best accessories for winter running. Even though we have a warm weekend ahead it has been downright frigid and gloomy! So I have a feeling I will be busting out the gloves again. I am all about keeping the extremities happy.

Calming the monkey mind. All about that.

-Dinner date this week with greens and mango margaritas. Quite lovely.

-Plus, your Friday funny.

What’s on tap for your weekend?
Running, yoga and all of the sunshine.

TGIFriday Faves.

Hey there and happy Friday! I am feeling pretty good this morning because I got a run in plus I’m sipping on a steamy HOT espresso. Well, Americano to be exact. I actually feel like dancing in my office but I’m pretty sure that would be a tad inappropriate. So I’m dancing in my head. Maybe I’ll add a dancing GIF for good measure.

Snoop GIFs are the best GIFs.

Let’s get to this week’s faves!

13 beauty products for super active women. I like the idea of a tea mask. Hashtag treat yo self.

Have y’all tried the Umami Seasoning Blend from Trader Joe’s?! It is everything. Actually the cashier ended up giving it to me for free because I was going to put it back– but he INSISTED that I must try it (!) and just tossed it in my grocery bag! He was right. I’m a fan now. Thinking of making these turkey burgers with it sometime soon.

I am all about these 25 tiny habits.

Plus, a little funny for your Friday.

Have a great weekend!

Running, yoga, wine time, friend and family time.
