Where is your favorite place in Dallas to take friends for a run?
Definitely White Rock Lake! It’s easy to get to, beautiful, water fountains aplenty and you can get some amazing views of downtown from the north side of the lake!
Run, bike or lift? What workouts have you been loving this summer?
Ok this is a hard one. I think I was built to be a multi-sport athlete and missed my calling. Since all my spring races have been cancelled, I’ve just been doing easy runs and it’s been great not having any pressure with that. Definitely loving my bike and I recently did my longest ride, 50 miles, and I’m already itching to go further! I love cycling because I can go super fast (finally topped out at 30 mph on a downhill and that was such a thrill!) and far without getting as tired and beating up my body like what happens on long runs.
Of course, as a part-time fitness instructor I also love lifting weights and core work. There’s something about curling 15+ pounds, knocking out push-ups, and planks that just feels empowering in a totally different way than running.
The bonus of doing all these other sports and workouts has been that I’ve gotten a lot faster on my runs. Whenever the winter comes and things cool down, I’m going to be ready to rip on some 5ks!
