20 Miles, Grapefest Fun and Wknd Recap.

Happy Monday…hope your weekend was all of that and then some. Let’s do a quick recap, shall we?


Saturday started off in a grand fashion with a lovely 20.1 mile run. I took it fairly easy for most of these miles…it felt so good to get out there, pound the pavement and think some things through in my head. Sometimes a long run is all you need to come up with solutions for issues in your life. It’s like a moving mediation of sorts.


Later on I celebrated with a trip to Grapefest with my bestie Natalie. This is hands down one of my favorite festivals that I go to all year! Yes, I am a vino girl at heart. We got to sample all of the Texas wines and some delicious food as well.



We celebrated all night long and of course I slept in before doing a quick recovery run out on the trails. Check out this gorgeous view.


I ended the weekend watching a little football, eating some BBQ and resting. And hello, check this out. 71 miles total last week. I am so proud of the strides I’m making with my weekly mileage. My body feels pretty good too and I’m ready to knock these next few weeks of training out leading to 26.2 number 21 in October.


How was your weekend? Did you attend any festivals or do anything exciting?

  1. Moving meditation… yes! And 20 miles give one the space for a lot of it! Awesome miles and looks like a fun weekend. I visited a seminar and did work, so not as much fun, but next weekend I get to volunteer at the Berlin marathon!

  2. Sounds like a great wknd. Mine was as low key as possible. Two long runs, some football and a visit to one son at college while the other son came home for a visit. Now I stress over potential injuries during taper.
