So long sweet summer…

Why does summer ALWAYS fly by so quickly?! It’s been a good one, though, filled with sunny days, time with friends and family, and a wonderful trip we called “Friendcation”. I have officially one more week of summer break before heading back to campus, and I’m going to make the most of it!

We tri’d at the Harlingen Triathlon Festival in mid-July and took “sweeps” (meaning: everyone in my crew placed!) it was HOT but a lot of fun!

A week after that we took our “Friendcation” which was one of my most favorite trips to date! We started off with one night in San Antonio where we went to lunch at the Pearl Brewery, Top Golf (my first time), then a night out on the Riverwalk.

Next morning, we drove into Gruene and went tubing (such a blast) and then had lunch at The Gristmill (my fave) where we got to meet up with Lexie, Kash, and Korben <3. I was so happy to get to see them.

That afternoon we checked into this AMAZING house we rented (totally felt like I was on The Real World when we got there) and we hung out at the house that night. The guys grilled and we started up a game of beer pong (I have definitely lost my skills since college). Overall, a chill but very fun night.

Next morning we all got our workouts in; some went bike riding, some went to Orangetheory, and some went on a very hilly run.

After that we all met back up, cleaned up, then headed to Gruene shopping area for lunch at Mozie’s and some shopping. Turns out it was like 107 degrees out so we didn’t last too long!

Back to the house to rest, clean up, and get ready for the Roger Creager concert that night. We caught the beautiful sunset off our balcony and had to take a photo op!

Went to the concert in Gruene Hall and had a blast! Such a fun way to wrap up an amazing trip.

The weekend after was my BIRTHDAY! It was a wonderful day that started off with me COACHING my Orangetheory class. Yup, I’m finally an official OTF coach!

The theme that day was “Slogan tees” so it was fun to see what everyone showed up in.

Afterwards I headed out to the beach with Gracie and her son Adrian and we went paddleboarding and floated around on a huge unicorn float.

Finally, finished off the day with dinner at Dodici’s Pizza & Wine with all my loved ones. Definitely a birthday to remember.

Tomorrow is the Tri Girl Sprint in Harlingen. I’ve always enjoyed it and am looking forward to having some fun out there. Hopefully we won’t melt! Next week Cris and I go on an exciting trip to SA for a convention we’ve been looking forward to since January (stay tuned for that).

 

TRI WITH JOY!
