  18. I just read that you did 10 miles at an 8:20 pace. I thought back to the run I did yesterday (11 miles @8:50) and the first thing I thought was “hey, I’m not that far behind an elite runner!”

    No offense or anything but you made my day!

  19. EXCELLENT RUN! Way to start the week on a good note! And I looove a delicious chicken recipe! THanks, my love!

    ~best part of my weekend=12k Race, followed by a HOT-Tub partay with my 2-best girlies and my MOM&POP…hehe LOVE the parents!
    ~xoxo!

  26. My favorite part of this weekend was my bike ride! 20 miles through a very nice forest.

  27. The best part of my weekend was the fact that I actually had a weekend day off to spend with my lovely boyfriend! Have a fantastic Monday girly!

  28. Hey Rockstar Runner!! Good morning to you…and it’s Monday…blah. 🙂

    Question, have you ever tried to bake the chicken in that recipe? I have no grill. 😦

    The best part of my weekend was the end of my 55 mile bike ride, I felt like I could go at least 10 more…which is good considering I’m riding 95 in two weeks! Yikes.

    • Well what makes this recipe so good is the carmelization of the margarita mix on the grill…plus continuing to baste it with the marnade! I haven’t ever baked it but I think it would probably lose something. You and T don’t have a grill?!? Really!

  29. The best part of my weekend was AFTER my long run on Saturday- ice bath (which I just discovered is the best thing ever) and then BBQ dinner!

  30. The best part of my weekend was totally my run yesterday!! Its been awhile since Ive felt so good about a run, and not had any pain afterwards (other than the good, my butt is sore from the hills kind of pain)!

  31. That is my happy place on a Monday morning too! COFFEE! 🙂
    And you’re right…the song DOES help just a little!

  32. I’m teaching the chest track to that song tonight at our Body Pump launch. I’ve been listening to it all day. lol

  33. BEST part of my weekend was spending Friday night celebrating my parents 29th anniversary with some delish food!! 🙂

    Love that coffee is your happy place…mine too!!

  35. 🙂 Youre so sunshiney! Happy Monday!

  36. Best part of my weekend was the massage I got last night from the hubs! And that song always puts a smile on my face too. It’s just such a “feel good” tune. 😀

  37. That coffee has inspired me to put on an afternoon pot!
    My weekend was blah b/c of pink eye and fever BUT your morning post has put a smile on my face!
    Kudos on the early morning run! 🙂
    Can’t wait to check out your recipe!
