Monday Mentionings: August 31

When I was younger, I never believed people that said “time flies.”  Now, I can’t believe how fast time truly does fly.  August is over.  Wow.  Lots of fun through this past week, including the first of 4 back to back weekends of races.

Tuesday was speed night at KC Running Co, and we did 1k repeats.  The weather was gorgeous; this weather is not August-like at all.  It’s been a beautiful start to fall, even though it should still feel like summer outside.  Thursday night’s run was lots of fun too.  I’m getting super good at runfies (running selfies), by the way.  I love this group so much.Photo Aug 27, 6 09 44 PMAfter the groupies run, we met up at Barley’s Brewhaus for some Thirsty Thursday fun.Photo Aug 27, 7 52 46 PMI’m titling this picture: Kitty Kontemplates.Photo Aug 28, 6 16 37 PMAnd this one: Mr. Fuzzy Feet.Photo Aug 29, 8 24 48 PMSaturday morning, I ran the Dot to Dot 10k, you can read my race recap here.  After the race, Amy and I spent most of the day together, hanging out, eating pancakes, and running errands. I have races the next 3 weekends, including the final 2 races in the Heartland 30k series, but first, the Labor Day 5k next weekend (Monday), with Mom! Sunday morning, Amy and I ran 5 miles with the group, then met up later for the Weekly Squeeze Yoga class at Lululemon.  Lululemon has a weekly FREE yoga class, every Sunday, at the Leawood location., in case you are in the area and want to give it a try.  Michelle joined us for yoga, and I was beyond excited for Amy and Michelle to finally meet! My two very favorite best friends, together at last.  Yay!  Talk about a fun yoga class!!  After class, Maylo, Amy, Michelle, Renee (another Renee from yoga, I’m not talking about myself in the third person!) and I went to lunch at Spin! Pizza and had a great time together.Photo Aug 30, 1 58 17 PMPhoto Aug 30, 1 34 05 PM

I’m looking forward to a week of work, then a nice long 3 day weekend! Mom is visiting next weekend, and we are doing yoga on the outfield of the K, catching a Royals game, running a 5k, and doing a wine/painting class.  FUN!!!  Have a beautiful week, friends!
