Well hello! Hope your week is getting off to a great start. This past weekend was full of fun…running, relaxing and a trip to the State Fair of Texas!

Saturday morning I was up to watch the sunrise and get in some happy miles. Temps were darn near perfect hovering right around the 50s so I was excited for that. Hello, perfect running weather. Nice to see you again. Last double digit run before the marathon.
I’ve really been getting into podcasts lately and so I listened to some Runner’s Connect. Great little resource to keep those miles going. Love the host Tina Muir (and her accent!) She’s also a blogger/elite marathoner/go getter. Love it. Check her blog out too whenever you get a moment.
After that it was just a lot of rest, I had some down time so I went to Saturday night church, and then had a date at the Gipsy Lime Taco Lounge. Perfect way to end the evening, right? I thought so. Cool place with some cozy couches, tv screens to watch the games and good food so I can’t complain.
Sunday I got in some quick easy miles in the morning…after I slept in of course. It was nice and hot out by about 9 am but it felt still felt good to be out and about and keeping the legs moving.
Then a little visit to the State Fair of Texas! Of course I had to get some cotton candy. We walked around a bit and did a little shopping.
Followed by some more relaxing at the wine garden under these lovely umbrellas. I kind of want to do this on my patio…not sure it would look as awesome as this though.
And now this week will be fairly chill leading up to next Sunday’s race! Bring on the Tyler Rose Marathon…6 days til 26.2 number 15!
How was your weekend? Did anyone check out a fall fair/carnival/festival?
