I Finally Mastered Yoga & Ran Hilly Miles & Ate Tacos

Nuther krazy weekend, kids…But good news, I finally mastered yoga!!! After yesterday’s hilly 7 mile run, my elf friend and I totally nailed chair and tree poses.

Boom, nailed it.

We finally found the Keebler tree.

The day before that, I had woked up early for a long run. This time the WRRC and DRC teamed up at White Rock Lake in Dallas. I ended up running 13 really HILLY miles in the neighborhoods East of the lake.

Yes Virginia, Dallas hills are real.

After those two days of hilly runs, (plus the previous 4 days of runs), my legs were feelin it. I had to help them recover by eating many many tacos. My fave of the weekend was from a farm to taco joint called Good to Go Taco.

Local chorizo and mashed taters in a taco? Yes, they went there.

And some more good news – we got a warm front this weekend, so we had a very nice 75 degree day. We took advantage with a patio brunch and attending a big Christmas tree lighting ceremony.

All in all a pretty good lil weekend. And there’s more! I got some big news over the weekend, but you’ll have to wait for that. Stay tuned!

How bout you? Have a good weekend? Have you mastered yoga yet? Who wants tacos (besides our friend over at Walk to Rio 2016) who was taunting me on Instagram over the weekend with his Mexico City tacos)?

Yoga Anus Strengthing Part II

This past Sunday I continued my recent pattern of going for a morning trail run followed by yoga.  The trail run was hot, but fun.  I was especially stoked because my GPS watch actually latched on to the satellites!!!  It usually has some issues under a thick tree canopy.  It’s good to know exactly how far I’m actually running!

After the run I met up with some friends for yoga at Lululemon.  They took a couple pics of us yogaing.

More bonus points if you can find me.

We had the same instructor as last week.  And if you saw my post about it, then you know she occasionally encouraged us to tighten our anuses.  Her words, not mine.  She said it helps with injury prevention.

This week she said it again.  She said it’s how real Yogis are able to fly.  Again, her words, not mine.

Learnin to fly.

Learnin to fly.  Can you find me?

I’m not sure exactly how clenching your anus helps you fly uninjured, but she’s the expert I guess.  Anyway, after two sessions of anus-tightening yoga, I’m really feelin the burn!  Oh wait, that may be the hot wings I ate last night.

How’s everyone doin?  Can you yoga fly yet?  Have you been practicing your clenching technique?  Do we need to create a run/yoga duathlon? 

PS.  Bummer – I forgot to write down the yoga name for it, but I’ll try to get it.
