Last night I did yet another at home strength session. I am starting to turn my living room into my own little mini gym.

A happy running moment and lazy girl meals.

Wednesdays are the days I like to meet up with my buddy Elyse for a sunrise run- the miles go by while we chat and catch up on each other’s lives. We met at 6 a.m., just before sunrise. We ended up covering a little over 5 miles. I always enjoy getting out with friendsContinue reading “A happy running moment and lazy girl meals.”

Sauna running and my latest obsessions.

6 sweaty miles this morning in the Texas summer heat, like running through a sauna. The humidity was thick, the sun was blazing and thankfully the wind brought a cooler breeze.

Snapbacks n Tattoos.

This morning’s run – Easy 7 miles, relaxed run, no music It felt so great to run without music this morning. The tune of birds chirping and the breeze blowing was music to my ears.
