TGIFriday Faves.

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!

What’s on tap for your weekend?

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.

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.

You guys…this week has been crazy insane busy work wise. Who is ready for some weeeeekend?! I sure as heck am.

Let’s get to my faves from this week!

Here’s a feel good routine for self-care. This is also a reminder to me that I need to invest in a new robe. Don’t you just love robes? I don’t there there is anything better to just be lazy around the house with.

Speaking of feel good…for some reason this is like the TRAP version of my feel good song. I just never get tired of it. Thanks Tyga.

3 speed workouts and warm ups for runners. I love me some high knees.

This skirt. It speaks to the gypsy in me.

And this. Oh so true.

Have an amazing Friday!!

Running with a bunch of crazy ultrarunners. And so on and so forth.

Hi there!! Happiest of Fridays to ya. Hope you have some fun in the sun planned. We had a bit of rain here but it cooled things down and this morning’s run was quite wonderful!! I don’t think I’ve run when temps were below 85 in quite a while. Welcome to Texas in the summertime. 

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

The rising popularity of fasted running. I like the topic and find it interesting…personally I do this in the morning if I’m running 10 miles or less. Usually it is because I run out of time making myself things in the morning before I hit the door. But, I do think it has its benefits. Not for everyone though. 

-I’ve been looking at a lot of bohemian and décor type of things on Pinterest. I need to figure out how to do the scarf ties like this. Love it.

Let’s be friends if we aren’t already on there by the way!! 

This for my balcony. Does anyone have any good balcony décor tips? I need some lights up so I can have a summer evening party. 

-My “Takin’ it Back to the Old School” playlist that I kind of made up yesterday. I ran with with is playlist this morning and it was so fun. Highly recommended.

Have a great Friday!!

What are you up to this weekend? 

Running, yoga, lot of pool time. The summer usual.

Happy Friday to ya! Hope you have some weekend fun in store. I am excited for another fun weekend filled with pool time, friends and some long running! Also so happy that these past two work days seemed to kind of fly by. I felt like I was playing catch up since we had the 4th off- so I’ve been rocking and rolling at work and then all of a sudden I look up and it is time to go home. And now it is the weekend again! Love when that happens.

Tips to keep your legs loose during road trips. I like the idea of bringing a foam roller on the road to roll things out! I also tend to bring compression socks when I travel. They work wonders for recovery.

-This bag…can someone find it for me? It is so cute and summery. I’m always finding such fun looks on Pinterest.

Spaghetti squash with buffalo chicken? Sign me up immediately.

10 tips for running in the morning as told by gifs. 8, 9, and 10 all the way.

-And this. Winnie the Pooh…my spirit animal.

Have a great Friday!

Tell me what is on tap for your weekend?!

Hey, hello and happy Friday to ya! Hope you have a fun weekend in store. I’ve got lots of running, fun friend time and sun time on the agenda!!

Anyone know what the above dance is called? I thought it was just the shuffle dance but apparently that is not it?? You know I’m not WITH IT like the kids are these days.

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

Can training for a marathon make half marathons easier? Good stuff and yes I definitely think so…actually it’s funny because the same is true about running ultras and then going back to run 26.2. It definitely makes it feel like a short jaunt, so to speak. Funny how that happens.

-Party in the back…loving lightweight tops like this one. I’ve been finding all of the good stuff on Pinterest.

Breaking news…athletes love to EAT. Hahaha thanks Strava.

-Posting my favorite pic on IG on summer solstice & #nationalselfieday (yes it’s a thing)…did you participate? This was actually the night after I ran a marathon a while back. I’ve got that 26.2 glow.

Have a great Friday!!

What’s on tap for your weekend? Anyone going on vacation soon?! Or staycation like me. Ha.
