Random Thoughts Thursday.

I got my day started with a quick 13 mile spin cycle ride followed by a RUNrise. Just running around the gym and the beautiful neighborhoods. Look at that pretty sky. 78 degrees which was a nice change of pace from the 90+ degree heat I’ve been running in on the daily.

Although I have been running during the humid (cooler) mornings I still have love for the drier heat in the evenings. It is something about that after work burn that I really love. Plus I guess it can’t hurt that my tan is looking pretty sweet. So hence the reason for changing it up a lot.

Dallas County is back with the mask mandates. Thank you Next Door for always keeping me posted with the latest and greatest news.

I still do not think I will wear a mask when I run. I need to freaking BREATHE. This is only for indoors/buildings and for the kiddos going to school. Of course everyone under that Nextdoor post is at it with the back and forth.

I actually am pretty ready for fall. I love Halloween, Thanksgiving and all of the festivities that go along with that stuff. Plus the crisp cooler weather and all of the flavors of fall. I’ve already started putting Pumpkin Spice creamer in my coffee. Feel free to judge. No shame…

The State Fair of Texas is about a month AWAY! Oh happy day. They’ve already announced top fair foods (which is a state fair tradition) I don’t know if I will be partaking but for some reason brisket brittle is a little intriguing.


I will be teaching a class at the gym tonight which is always fun because usually it is the last little bit of energy I have left in the day (after work and teaching class this morning). So lots of iced coffee will be had today. I’ve already had 2 cups of java and just about a gallon of water. Hydration game freaking on point.

Share some randomness with me today!

  1. Putting on my immunologist hat. I do not think it’s necessary to wear a mask outdoors while running if you are not in a huge group. There have been some reports that have confirmed this. Maybe I feel this way because I sweat a lot and with indoor, treadmill running I got through a mask every 10-15 minutes. However, for races, I think folks wear masks in starting corrals.

    Random thought: Yesterday, we cracked open a bottle of champagne but did not finish it. I wonder if it would be ok to run the champagne through our soda stream to make it fizzy again.

      1. After giving some thought to my random thought, maybe I’ll let the champagne go flat for one more day. I remember “refizzing” a bottle of water and the soda stream sprayed water everywhere.

        I love my soda stream. I gotta say it has been the best random pandemic purchase.
