Fort Worth/Dallas Trip!














Traveling with dogs is an adventure in itself! Samson loves car rides. He slept most of the way. I caught him yawning! He's so sweet. She-Ra, on the other hand, does not travel very well. She ended up whining most of the time. I finally did catch a pic of her while she was sleeping, on the floorboard, on my foot. She can be sweet...when she's asleep! :) 

We got to Fort Worth to stay with our friends, Jackie and Brad, on Saturday evening. We went and ate at a good little Mexican Restaurant. I didn't even think about getting pictures. I was so hungry! 
Sunday we went and had lunch with my little brother (who is over 6 ft tall and not so little) and his 2 roomies, Isaac and Keith (who are both fellow runners!) We ate at the Twisted Root Burger Co. It's actually been featured on Diners, Drive Ins, and Dives on the Food Network. I had the Peppercorn Bacon Ranch Burger (yes, not healthy at all) and it was soooo good! They give you a name card when they take your order and call it when your order is ready. We were Stevie Wonder. :)

After Lunch we all went to a coffee shop called Opening Bell.


I had the Caramel Mocha Frappe made with Ghiradelli Chocolate. Can we say YUMM! 
 It was so good that I forgot to take a pic before I started drinking!

After the coffee, Brad, Jackie, the hubby, and I went to the movies to see The Expendables. I have to admit that I am a strange girl and actually enjoyed the movie! I loved all the characters! :)
That evening Jackie made us some delicious Baked Zitti!


One had meat in it and the other was Veggie! I ate the one with mean, tried the veggie one, and they were both delicious! Nice and cheesy! :)

Sunday night we all decided to go for a run. I wrote all about that HERE
It was great to finally finish week 3 and be able to do it with the comfort of friends!
 I had half of my very first Luna Bar post-run.
It was pretty good! I will be getting more of these in the future! :)

Now, as I have promised, I have a pair of Compression socks OR sleeves to giveaway from PRO Compression!

This is what PRO Compression has to say about how they work:
"PRO Compression socks are designed specifically to deliver both maximum comfort and speedy recovery times. The science is complex, but benefits such as improved blood flow, stability and comfort are universally understood.  The moment you put these socks on your feet and incorporate them into your game, you will feel and understand the difference."
I have 4 pairs of PRO Compression Marathon socks and I LOVE them! They have been wonderful for recovery after my last two halfs and after my long training runs!
I didn't own any after my first half, and it took me almost 2 weeks until I could …

Big News!

One of the reasons I haven't been blogging much is because we just bought our very first house!!! Isn't it beautiful!
We don't move in until next week, but buying a house has taken a lot of time! I've been packing our apartment up a little at a time, but we still have A LOT to do!
It's hard to move with a toddler, because you don't want to shake their world up too much. They need their usual toys and to be able to find their favorite shoes amongst the boxes. Taking it slow and moving a little at a time just seemed like the best option.
We are going from a 2 bedroom apartment to a 4 bedroom home!  With a backyard! Down the street from a park! We are going to have so much space!  Being able to go outside in the back and down the street to the park is a huge deal for me!  Sophie and I LOVE being outside! I am so excited! I just can't even describe it! lol :)
And that's not all of the big news!
I also got a job!
It is an office job, where I will be doing t…

Some of my Favorite Things!

I just wanted to share some of my favorite Running gear right now! :)
I'll start with the one thing that everyone knows I already love...
My BOBRevolution SE!
I've been using it for a a few weeks now and I'm still in Love! I'm not sure how I've lived without it these past 15 months! You can read my BOB "review" here! :)

My newest favorite thing are my hotpink Locklaces!

They are elastic shoelaces that  tighten by a "lock". They make it easy for me to just slip my shoe on and go! They are also wonderful because I have had issues with my shoelaces being too tight on the top of my foot and these fix that problem! No more pain! I wish I had known about these forever ago! I will have them on all of my future running shoes!
I love their moto!
Now onto something that I think every single person who is active outside should own. Pepper Spray.
In this case the Personal Saver and the Wrist Saver.
This i the Personal Saver I carry it on my keychain everyw…
