My friend Lupe ran the Austin ATT marathon this year. I'm just so unbelievably proud of her and the fact that she trained for this on her own and did so great! The most I have ever run is a half marathon and Lupe's great accomplishment has inspired me, once again, to attempt the feat. Did you know that less than 1 percent of the population completes a marathon? Go Lupe!
Vanessa, Brent, Ahsan, and myself had a great time tracking Trish and Lupe along the marathon route. V appropriately coined us as "storm trackers" and that is exactly what we were! Thankfully Brent was quick in figuring out where we needed to be at what time and we got to see them on at least four different points. It was great and I was so impressed when I saw these girls crossing the finish line.
Afterwords we all headed over to J Blacks for a bite and I was pleased to see they were trying out a new Bloody Mary bar. I was also impressed to try their new serrano infused vodka, mmmm. I love a spicy drink!
I've raved about J Black's brunch before here. Honestly, the brunch wasn't as good as what I've had in the past. I know my hubbie is an investor there and all and hope he doesn't get upset but the portions were smaller and the flavor burst that I'm used to from there in my migas just wasn't there. I'm hoping that maybe they were just busy and it was an off day.

My friends contributed greatly to my wonderful marathon experience! From ongoing encouraging text messages (even from my out of town loved ones) to homemade pasta meals from Vanessa…
