Running and Beer...Yes Please!

This weekend we had another race. This time is the Fort Bliss 10 Miler in the Heat. We ran this race last year, it was actually my first official race that was a significant distance.

It started at 7am and to be honest it was perfect weather, it was overcast somewhat humid (it got worse as the race went on) and we even got a few sprinkles along the course.

I was happy with the pace that I was running at, I was not going in to break any records haha. I was keeping a slow and steady pace and still managed to best my time from last year by a few minutes so I was happy. After the race we had our traditional Starbucks which there happens to be one right across from the gym the race was held at.


We got home and showered then headed off to Las Cruces for the Tour de Beer festival. I am normally not a beer drinker but I did find a few that I enjoyed. We had a blast, we got our commemorative glasses, beer tickets and listened to live music. It was a great way to end the day.


Sunday was a bit more low key, I made homemade cinnamon rolls for breakfast, we did some shopping and looked at new dining room tables. We are toying with the idea of getting a new one but we will see.


I hope you all had a great weekend!

  12. Neither running nor beer sound too enticing to me. Give me a fruity cocktail any day. ;-)

  13. Oh my goodness, those cinnamon rolls look delicious. Have you ever shared the recipe? Glad you found a beer you like. My favorite is still Corona, which is heresy here in beer country :-) Congrats on finishing the race and even breaking your own time from last year! Have a great week, dear Jen!

  16. We have a high top in our dining room, and I so miss a traditional size. Hubby loves the high top though, so I don't say anything. ;)

    Glad you finished your race and had a fun festival to attend. :)
