The Countdown Begins and Memorial Day Wknd Recap.

Hi there! I’m back after a long and relaxing 3 day weekend! Hope you all enjoyed some time off as well. And now we have a short work week ahead so that’s even better! The countdown begins til my next marathon…Rock n Roll San Diego in 5 days. Bring on 26.2 number 20!

This morning I got in some miles with the Irving Running Club. Lots of humidity but at least we had some cool breeze and cloud cover on our side.

Let’s recap the weekend a bit, shall we? I think this one would be best if we just did a little review in picture form.

Starting out with an awesome 11 mile run on Saturday…legs were feeling good that day. Glad to get some strong miles in.


Followed by yoga at a brewery in Dallas. So fun.

Love this girl. We are starting to make our yoga dates a tradition. She actually brews her own beer at home. How awesome is that?


Watermelon all weekend. With a squeeze of lime, please.

Sunday 10k after the rain.

Thin crust Memorial Day pizza with tomatoes and basil. Pure happiness.


Soulcycle is now in Dallas. I went to the one in DC a couple years back and seriously LOVED it. I’m now hooked.


SOUL TEXAS. Yes, has a nice ring to it.


Winding down Memorial Day with some relaxed miles on the canal. I could live here right on the water and be perfectly fine with life.

  1. I was in Dallas for a hot second last week but thought of you. Next time i’m there, I’d love to try to catch a spin class with you.
    On a different topic, what can you tell me about the Irving running club? Is it tied to a store? Did an individual start it? Feel free to message me privately if it makes more sense. 🙂

    1. IRC is an independent, not for profit organization. A group of people started it in 2012 in efforts to get our community in Irving, TX to be more active and get out there and run!! I have, however, run with a group before at a running store down here by the name of Luke’s Locker. They offer training programs for a cost, while IRC does not. We train together, but everyone finds their own program and kind of does their own thing. Hope that makes sense to you. Good question too!!

  2. So excited about #20 + soul cycle (of course, I have Soul Glo song stuck in my head from Coming to America). I don’t know why I forgot you were running San Diego. That is on my bucket list. One year…

  3. My weekend included a lot of pictures as well!! I had my first watermelon of the season as well, but I’m going to have to try it with lime!!
