Happy Monday! My morning started at 5:45 with some spin cycle action…I taught my early bird party class. We rocked it out to some new tracks.
Then of course I got my coffee on. Java in a Starbucks mug makes it feel like you are drinking $8 coffee even though it’s just from the office breakroom. For free. Win win.
Recapping the weekend…Saturday bright & early I ran 9 miles with my Luke’s crew. We still caught some Christmas lights before the sun came up.
We are 1 week away from Dallas Marathon domination! I am running the half marathon and a bunch of my Luke’s friends have been training for months for the full marathon. I can’t wait to cheer them on! Hoping for lots of PR action for them. I am going to race the 13.1 miles too so it will be fun! Another medal on the rack…actually I may be needing another rack soon cuz the one I have is reaching capacity. Maybe I should get another Christmas tree and just hang them there. They make great ornaments, yes?
After Saturday’s run I had lunch with my mom and an old friend over at my favorite spot Penne Pomodoro. Temps were in the 70s all weekend so we parlayed on the patio. I had an arugula salad w/ shrimp & lots of feta…nom nom.
That same night my sweetest friend Ann hosted a wine tasting party over at her house! I made this sangria after my Jen told me how tasty it was I put it to the test. Great party holiday drink! Especially tasty with fresh cut up apples and pears. I had forgotten how much I loved pears…I will be putting them in every drink from now on.
Of course we took 36582 photos by the Christmas tree…and danced the night away with some of my favorite girls.
Me and Ann – hostess w/ the mostess.
Sunday I took advantage of a much needed rest day. I went to church and brought gifts for my angel tree girls. My church is doing a gift giveaway for all of the single parent families. Got them lots of goodies.
After church was brunch on the patio catching up with these hot tamales. Fun fun.
This week I am going to focus on teaching classes, a little bit of running, and getting the legs ready for my upcoming race!
How was your weekend? Do you have a medal rack or something where you hang your race medals?
