Wake n’ Shake / Wknd Recap.

Happy Monday! My alarm went off at the lovely hour of 4:45 am this morning. Wake it and shake it! I had to be at Channel 8 for the Danceaton flashmob on their morning show! I boarded the DART rail with my mom and her friend (lucky teachers with their summers off!) and we jetted off downtown.
We did a tribute to Michael Jackson and danced to the song ‘Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin’.…it was SO much fun! I enjoyed our last little TV performance so I decided I would participate in this one as well. The dancers rocked it…they posted tons of photos and video footage online. I really enjoyed watching us rock it out!

Now, I will have my IV coffee drip hooked up to me all day while I plug away at work. Great way to start the morning!

This weekend was filled with lots of fun things – running, pool time with friends, and brunchin’. I ran 10 miles on Saturday with my marathon training group and then had mimosas at Penne Pomodoro with my girl Natalie. Always a good time with her.
I ordered an arugula summer salad with grilled asparagus, tomatoes, onions and lots of yummy goat cheese. I had never had asparagus in my salad before, but it was delicious!
After running and brunch I went to a pool party with BF at our friend’s place. The boys had fun playing volleyball while the girls parlayed and got our tan on.
The volleyball game got pretty intense and went on until the sun went down! Thankfully the pool was nice and lit up and the party continued late into the night.
On Sunday I went for another morning run with Team Luke’s. We did an easy, but hilly 5 miler. Having good friends to run with always makes it more enjoyable!
This weekend I focused more on running and I will definitely be doing more of that in the coming months leading up to the Marine Corps Marathon! It is going to be a fun summer of training mixed with teaching lots of dance classes! I am looking forward to logging lots of miles and having fun while doing it.
How was your weekend? What is your favorite kind of salad? Favorite MJ song?
