TGIFriday Faves.

Hello and happiest of Fridays to ya! Hope you have some fun in store for the weekend. I’ve definitely got running, some tailgating and fun with friends on the agenda. But first let’s get to my faves from the week!

Post run sauna time this week at 24 Hour Fitness was much needed after slightly chilly morning runs. Seriously a great way to get rejuvenated after getting up crazy early. Love.

Have you guys heard about the EARNIN’ app? I am pretty sure this sounds like an ad but I promise you it is not. I personally think it is nice option to have every once in a while. Apparently you can cash out part of your paycheck BEFORE you get paid and they send it to you instantly? And then they just deduct whatever you cashed out, once you actually get paid. I can get on board with that.

8 running documentaries to get you inspired this winter. There are a couple on here that I actually haven’t seen. Love me some Spirit of the Marathon.

Back to wearing the straight hair for fall and winter and I’m actually loving that all of my summer highlights are gone! I think I’m going to keep the dark non chemical look for a while. My hair is actually totally au natural now, I don’t put any straighteners/keratin/Brazilian or craziness in it and it feels so good to have options. It’s super curly when I want to be and then I can just straighten it on a whim with a good quality flat iron and wear it however. I think I’ll be rocking it straight for a little while since the weather is cooler.

Hope you have a marvelous Friday!

What’s on your agenda for the weekend? Who is running the NYC MARATHON?!? If so best of luck!!!

TGIF and happy Friday and all of that good stuff. Hope you have some fun times this weekend in store!! I definitely am looking forward to some Texas sunshine (yes the sun is back after the rain finally), friend time and long run time!! Let’s get to this week’s favorites.

Some Halloween social run fun. Okay if I can be honest it was more of a power walk since I ran that a.m. & we were handing out candy but I have not gone OUT out on a Thursday night in so freaking long. Hey, YOLO.

Um…excuse me…CROCKPOT CRUSTLESS PIZZA?! All the cheese though. Where do I sign up.

Running a Halloween race? Check these tips first.

3 creative ways to redefine your phone habits. I actually really like the phone box idea.

Friday sunrises. Aren’t they always magical? Yes and yes.

-Oh and it is NATIONAL PUMPKIN DAY. So please go celebrate and enjoy something yummy. You’re welcome.

Have a great weekend!

What is on tap for your weekend?!
Running, Halloween festivities and doing some adult-ish things.

Happiest of Fridays to ya! Hope you have a great weekend in store. I’ve got lots of running and fun friend time on the agenda! Plus it looks like the sun will come out to play after the rain all week so should be a good one.

Let’s get to this week’s faves!

Preventing a kick in the gut. Someone asked me about this issue not long ago so I found the perfect article. Honestly for me, not overloading on the GU and excess calories is what does the trick. Also caffeine tends to mess with my tummy so I do it but in smaller doses. It definitely takes time to nail the nutrition stuff down with training and running. Trust me, I’ve been running marathons and ultras for nearly 10 YEARS. And I’m still freaking learning.

This Ciara song. HOT. My peeps in the spin classes that I teach love it.

Lovely Friday solo miles in the rain. It was everything.

STAY WILD. Love this coffee mug. Love all of my Pinterest finds.

This about Texas weather. It is OH SO TRUE especially this week. Man, I wasn’t really ready.

That’s all for this week! Have an awesome Friday.

What’s on tap for your weekend? I know a lot of you have your last longish run before NYC!! Excited for all of my blog friends and their training.

Happy Friday! Hope you have some fun in store for the weekend! This week has been absolutely so super busy on the work front so I’m looking forward to a weekend full of running and r&r! Let’s get straight to my faves from this week.

Friday early RUNrise. What is funny about this run is that I jacked up my alarm for this morning and ended up missing the 5 AM group run (oops)- soooo I just ran at 6 something, solo by my favorite lake. And you know what? It was JUST WHAT I NEEDED. Like I wouldn’t have had it any other way. Especially the way this week has been. I needed the solo time. So, thank you baby Jesus for letting me slow down, sleep in a bit. And not rush off to the next destination. Just step outside my door to run and reflect. Good looking out.

Hold Fast to What is Good. Love this so much.

Mexican zucchini? Where do I sign up.

French woman share what they eat in a day. I mostly just like the fact that they don’t shy away from carbs. All the good things in moderation. All about it.

This post- It takes a village- my stupid crazy solo hundo. Um…could we talk about taking DEDICATION to a whole ‘nother level. And the cool part is that I know some of the pacers and that paced this lady. Freaking awesome. I love my trail running/ultrarunning community.

Have a great weekend!

Running, play time, relax time.

Hey there and happiest of Fridays to you! Hope you have some fun weekend plans. I have a busy day (and weekend) in store so just thought I’d stop in. I did a big 20 miler this morning which was FANTASTIC. Hey…Friday long runs may be the new thing for me? You never know. I will be doing a longish run on Saturday too. Hashtag ultra training.

Anyway let’s get to this week’s faves!

21 things we all need. Actually this is an old article but still rings true. LOVE 1, 6, 12, 15.

-Right now I am on a Sade kick. I have no idea why. I just get enamored with certain artists at times. Her Love Deluxe album is where it’s at.

-Just the weather this week in general. Temps were AMAZING for my 20 mile run this morning. It was a bit of a chill run with a chill type of pace but just what I needed for today. Love.

-I am thinking I will be needing this “Sundays are for Football” tee from Express. Because people keep inviting me to football related events on Sunday fun day. Granted I could not have a care in the world about who the heck is playing but ya know the top sure is cute.

-And this. Just because it’s oh so true.

Have a great Friday!

Happiest of Fri-yays to ya! Hope you have some fun weekend plans in store. It has been a long week of work and I’m definitely ready to let a little loose! Let’s get to my faves from this week.

The thought of ALL THINGS FALL. Oh, and it is the day before the fall solstice!!! A.k.a. “fall eve”. So, even better.

Although it is basically fall, I’m still not over summer clothes. And I don’t think Texas weather is either. We may have a little cool down next week so I think I’m going to pull out my maxi dresses. I am a girlie girl at heart.

Running is a relationship with yourself. Could not agree more.

YES…I know I posted this yesterday but I’m going to post it again. Because it deserves recognition. Wine Wednesday with neighbor friends by the grill. Oh. And chicken jalapeño sausage is EVERYTHING.

-And this. Because it is a big mood. Today.

Have a great Friday!!

What is on tap for your weekend?
Running, friends, good times, repeat.

TGIFriday Faves- Pinspirations.

Happiest of Fridays to ya! Hope you have some fun weekend plans in store. Here are my faves from this week!!

-Hello my name is Chelsea and I’m obsessed with poke bowls. Have you hopped on board the poke bowl train? I love all things ahi tuna & salmon. Plus, a local spot just opened up in my ‘hood. This could get dangerous.

This song. In love. And on repeat. As well as this one.

-All of the Big Cottonwood Canyon pics. Cant wait to be there oh so soon!

-Have you peeped the Brooks trail run collection from REI?! I am needing me a new pair of Pure Grit kicks right about now.

Hi there and happiest of Fridays to ya!! Well the sunshine is back down here in Texas so you’d better believe I will be spending LOTS and LOTS of time outdoors this weekend! Simply cannot wait.

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

The best running shorts of 2018. Ladies I don’t know about you but the right shorts for me training in the summer is just oh so important. I mean truly it can make or break a run, am I right?! I’ve really liked Under Armour’s athletic wear (not their shoes but absolutely their leggings and shorts/tops/etc) so I’ll have to check those out. Lululemon’s speed shorts remain to be my fave.

This DO ANYWHERE abs workout. Yes, I’m getting back to doing my Russian twists. Oh so good for ya.

Rompers are still rocking my world. I tell you I have been oh so close to wearing them to work lately. Maybe one day I’ll try to get away with it, on casual Friday. Ha.


Friday RUNrises. Just because they just have a special magic to them.

That’s all for this week! Have an amazing day.

What’s on tap for your weekend?
Long running it with friends, coffee date with a good buddy, pool time and whatever other mischief I find myself in.

Happy Friday to ya! Well the end of the week is here again and I’m ready to kick back max and relax!! I have a few ADULT-ish things to do but definitely enjoying some down time as well as running Is absolutely on the agenda after a long work week!

Let’s get to this week’s faves!

I had the most incredible chicken fajita salad the other day and I kid you not it was the highlight of my day. I know, my life really is so very exciting. For some reason also I really like to eat in my car while watching youtube videos on my lunch break. It is my little slice of peace on earth.

So obsessed with sunflowers this week and I have no idea why. I’ve been pinning them a lot on Pinterest as of late.

I really also am feeling this lately about people in general. Because it is oh so true…

Summer skincare essentials for runners. I need to invest in those lavender wipes.

Ghostrider vino. I had a glass of this last night at a friend’s birthday gathering. It is incredible. Perfect bold red to enjoy with friends.

Hope you have an amazing Friday!

What’s on tap for your weekend?
Running, mimosas…rinse and repeat.
