Undressing Runners, Trespassing Yoga & (not) Passing up Tacos!

Sup kiddos? Keep it real? Rock n rollin? I hope so. As for me, I’ve just been tryin to stay gold.

Chi Marathon training is in full wreckx n effect. It’s goin good so far. This weekend’s long run was with WRRC’s Run My Hood series. And it was hot.really hot.and humid. But crushed a 14 miler…Followed by a pool party!!!

Get me in that pool!

If that wasn’t a salt water pool to start with, it is now.

This run started bright dark and early with a smaller group of folks who needed the extra miles.

We got in a quick 6 miles before heading back to meet up with the sleeper-inners.

This group is known for running in various states of undress.

I’m not gonna lie, I had a really hard time on the second part of this run. The sun was up and it was really really hot. I struggled. It was just one of those bad runs we all have from time to time. As soon as we finished I started to cramp up a bit and had to bust out an impromptu yoga sesh in a stranger’s yard.

I CANNOT believe my "friend" took this photo of me. At least a passing car gave me a honk doe!

I CANNOT believe my “friend” took this photo of me and put it on the internetz. At least a passing car gave me a honk doe…I still got it, baby!

Even though it wasn’t the best run, I’m thankful I had friends who helped me through it – especially the last few miles!!!!

And afterwards, of course was the funner stuffs! Woot wooot!

Oh, and we couldn’t wrap up the morning without one last mandatory group photo.

See, various states of undress.

See, various states of undress, I told ya.

Double oh, this may have also happened…

Don't judge us early morning taco eating margarita drinkers. I mean, I'd been up since 4am for crying out loud.

Don’t judge us early-morning-taco-eating-margarita-drinkers. I mean, we’d been up since 4am for crying out loud. It was like afternoon to us. It’s 5am somewhere, #amiright?

Other than that, the mileage is starting to ramp up. 45 big ones this week. Stay tuned for updates…and more taco pictures.

How bout you? When is too early for tacos/margs? Ever down-dogged someone’s yard? How undressed do you get (when you run)?

  1. Oh Scott, I’m over here on the bike at the gym giggling at Smashmouth #neverforget jajahaja!

  2. Smashmouth. You kill me. If ever I move to Texas, you can bet it’s within running distance of You and Your Clan. Such fun you fools have!

    It is never, EVER too early for ‘cos and ‘margs. Ever. And salt those rims. I have no idea how you handle that heat. #crampsbegone

    • Thank you – that was my fave part of the blog by far! You are welcome to join our clan anytime! Just don’t be funnier than me!
      Nice – I like that – ‘cos. But then shouldn’t it be ‘tas?
      I’m not handling the heat, but it’s definitely fondling me!

  3. Never too early for tacos and margs.

  4. Oh my god you and your pool parties. And food. I need to join your running community. End of story. You guys know what’s up!

  5. Love how big that running group is! And the pool party afterwards? Sign me up!
    I obviously don’t like the hard runs, but when you get them out of the way at least you shouldn’t have another one for a while!

    • You have an open invitation, come down from Canada!!!
      Thank you, I hope you’re right. It’s been a tough summer so far. Hopefully Saturday’s 16 miler will go better!

  6. Pretty awesome post-run routine. 🙂

  7. Taco intervention time! Is that all you eat? lol

    • Hahaha! I actually tweeted at Torchy’s that I need rehab. They wrote back, “There is no cure because there is no problem”

      • Haha, I love that!!!!! Seriously though, I don’t know anyone else that eats as many tacos as you do!

      • Ha, thank you!!! And yes, I tweeted at Torchy’s that I might have a problem, they assured me that it’s no problem! 😉

  8. Sue @ This Mama Runs For Cupcakes

    That is one thing I miss about living in Texas, you can get a taco and a marg at ANY time of the day!! Texas is the best.

  9. Never too early for margaritas – you need to replace lost salts when running in the heat 😉
