Let’s get right to this week’s Weekly Wrap 55 Racing and Fighting. I wonder did the fighting get your attention? No, I wasn’t doing any fighting, and my husband is fine. In case you missed it the fighting part came in the way of UFC202 and the racing part was my daughter competing at a barrel race in Jackson, MS.

I’m so proud of her, look at this beautiful buckle she won and she won a check for all of her entry fees back plus a little gas money!

Top 20 Buckle

First off this was another very active week for me, my runstreak is still going strong and I made both my scheduled training sessions and classes AND I have no more FOMO with the StepBet Challenge. Yup, I’m in, I’m on over my head but I’m IN! 6 long weeks!!! Woo, wee!

weekly wrap 55 racing and fighting

I’m not training, for anything right now. I won’t start building my mileage back up until mid-September in preparation my first Half Marathon of the Fall/Winter season. I’ll go into more detail on my upcoming schedule on next week’s Tuesday On the Run post. I still have to pull this together but hopefully putting it out here will make me do it! I’m sorry Marcia for missing TOTR lately πŸ™

This weekend was a busy one even though we were not officially traveling (a few more weeks). After my morning run, we did take a road trip Saturday to Jackson to see my daughter compete in a barrel race. We stayed there until 9PM then drove to our favorite sports bar just in the nick of time to see the UFC202 main event. I waited up for her to get home and it was like 2AM before I got to sleep. With a 5:55 alarm to 2AM this mama was spent!

Oh, I almost forgot, I got a new phone! I sooo needed one and it just so happened I was able to pre-order the Samsung Note 7 and it came in Friday. Now I won’t have to keep adding and deleting apps to use my phone, it was really getting frustrating.

Here is my week in pictures.

That is going to put a wrap on this week’s Weekly Wrap 55 Racing and Fighting. I slept in this morning and got out later to get my one mile in. I knew there would be a price to pay but I needed the rest and with a weak cool front it really wasn’t bad. It even looks like our forecast is lower to mid 90’s this week. Not fall but I’d call it a break in the heat!

How about you, getting any breaks in heat yet?

Do you use your phone like a mini-computer or just for talking and texting?

Coming up

Thank you to those who helped me with crowdsourcing last week. I have that post coming up this week so look out for it.

Here’s a teaser to what’s coming up for us travel wise:

    Kim Hatting recently posted…Keeping It RealMy Profile

    • Oh I do get my sleep! I can’t stay up late like I use too all the time. Getting too old for that! I had a scare about my streak yesterday I had to walk a bit. But after several good stretch sessions it was all fine this morning. Fingers crossed it was just a fluke!

    • I am going to Orlando for Labor Day weekend! πŸ™‚ There will be no Disney involved as I could not get reservations at the Fort but I hope it will allow us to see more of the downtown part of the city. I’m crossing my fingers I get to meet up with MaryBeth too.

  10. Congrats to your daughter, I’m sure that makes her Mom very proud:) So nice you don’t need to increase your mileage until mid-September, it’s unbearably hot right now. But you still have your running streak going – so you ease right in. Thanks for the link-up! You and HoHo are doing an AMAZING job!
    Heading over to HoHo now and I’ll be back tomorrow linking up my post!

However, you know things are going to be a bit touchy now with Davis being in rebel territory and us wanting to be in bulldog country! πŸ™‚ HoHoRuns and I are considering one of the bike rides from the Alabama Backroads Series…we want you in!! We’ll find you a road bike! What do you think????

  12. Congrats to your daughter! I don’t follow fighting so I have no idea what that was that you were watching..lol

    Can’t wait to see what’s on your racing schedule for fall!

    • It’s Ultimate Fighting Challenge (UFC) Meranda. It’s ok, I didn’t follow until recently. Although I still think I look at it more from the athlete side rather than just two people fighting. It amazes me how you can train your body to handle blows and all.
      Speaking of my racing, I’ve gotten slack this summer and I’ve enjoyed shorter runs!
      Tricia recently posted…Weekly Wrap 55 Racing and FightingMy Profile

  13. I am so excited for college football to come back! USC starts over labor day and am I even more excited for home games as I have student football tickets! πŸ™‚

  14. Super congrats to your daughter!

    It looks like you had another awesome week of activity – I love that you are doing the runstreak. I so wish that I could do one but my body rejects running daily, lol.

    Sooo ready for college football! Our team has their first game Sept 1, and we are going to their first home game on Sept 10 and the next day I run my marathon!
    We had a divine break in the heat last week and got over an inch and a half of rain (huge deal here where we get about 13 inches a year and we were about 3 inches behind for the year) The rain soaked in and closed up some huge cracks in the ground, things might even green up! It got hot again yesterday and today and then another cold front is blowing in! YAY! and my kids go back to school tomorrow
    Christy recently posted…Weekly Wrap: Last blast of summerMy Profile

    • I know your excited about your marathon! Your training has gone great too Christy!
      Glad yall got rain, I know getting enough rain is crucial for yall and the livestock!
      It’s warmed back up here too but we are still getting pop up afternoon showers pretty much daily!
      Tricia recently posted…National Waffle DayMy Profile

  19. I’m so ready for college football. We are devoted USC Gamecock fans but I love football in general. Carolina always plays really early in the season, on Thursday night, so it’s a nice way to kick off the Labor Day weekend. Glad you guys have tickets too and hope you love the game!

    Hooray for your daughter winning the buckle and some cash!
    Amy Lauren recently posted…Weekly Rundown: August 15-21My Profile

  20. I don’t watch football anymore, but I am ready for fall. It’ll start warming back up here, but I hope not too bad. I got a hint of fall weather, especially yesterday morning, and it was wonderful. It wasn’t muggy yesterday, and the breeze felt great while I was finishing up my errands.

  23. I would be running in this heat if I didn’t have to too! LOL This morning was the first time the humidity has broke here and I needed it! I hot enter too fast on my comment lol so you get two from me.
    Great job on keeping the streak alive.
    Karen recently posted…No Crying Over a Few Missed MilesMy Profile

  24. Congrats to your daughter – that’s a really cool belt! This week we are finally getting some relief with high’s in the low 80’s but of course it’ll be back to 90 by the weekend. Love that you’re still streaking!
    Janelle @ Run With No Regrets recently posted…Philly Marathon Training Week 3 RecapMy Profile

  25. Congratulations to your daughter! We had a cooler day yesterday with low humidity and it was glorious! I don’t want to wish summer away (I love the sunshine and longer days) but I could do without 90 degrees and 90% humidity. I’m looking forward to some aspects of fall, including football! We live about a mile away from Ohio State’s stadium and it’s fun to soak in the football Saturday excitement on campus!
    Elizabeth recently posted…Weeks 9 & 10: Birdcamp and beyondMy Profile

  26. That’s a really cool belt buckle. I know you are a proud mama. College football? Heck yeah. It’s so hard to believe it’s just around the corner. You’ll have a blast at that game. I’m proud of YOU for streaking. It shows such a level of commitment! It’s almost time to start training for cool weather half marathons. Yippee!

  27. congrats to your daughter!!!!!!!
    when football season starts, I don’t see much of my husband until February– UNLESS I join in on the games. Lol!

  28. Congrats to your daughter, and for the great success for your WW posts! I will admit I am not a big fan of the link ups sometimes, but I’ve definitely always been a fan of yours!!! I think because I’m not reading the same thing over and over because everyone’s week is different. <3

  29. Your daughter’s horse is BEAUTIFUL! And they make a fine team πŸ™‚ Tell her congratulations from all your blogging friends! Nothing beats a big belt buckle – dare I say they are even cooler than race medals?! In my opinion at least.

  32. I love football but it is an American sport… so I never get to watch any. Congrats to your daughter !
    I have a 6,6K race mid Sept with my colleagues and then the NYC marathon. Besides that, no races on my calendar. It becomes a little overwhelming. I wanted to do the Disneyland Paris half end of Sept. but we have a wedding. Oh well, next year !
    Karen @ Fit in France recently posted…Back in the saddleMy Profile

  33. Congratulations to your daughter!!! Yay for your new phone, too!!! I do love football season, although I went to a school (the University of Illinois) that doesn’t have a very strong football team. So I’m more into NFL football than college football. Either way, though, it’s a really fun time of year!!!
    Emily @ Out and About recently posted…Weekly recap: August 15-21, 2016My Profile

  34. I definitely use my phones as little computers, frequently looking things up on one phone (I have a work & personal iPhone) to text someone an answer on the other. Sometimes it makes me think of that line from Christmas Vacation where the boss tells his secretary to “Call somebody, anybody and get me someone while I”m waiting” because I’m always multitasking with those phones. Congrats to your daughter!
    Jessica S recently posted…Weekly Wrap Up: First week of school!My Profile

  35. Love the picture of your daughter on the horse! Awesome that she won a prize in the race! I just got my new phone in the mail but haven’t used it yet. My old one was about 5 years old and barely worked! I’m happy to have a new one, but now I feel like making the switch over is just one more thing I have to do, which is why my new phone is still in its box!

  36. I am ready for some college football! I’m half way in my Step Bet challenge- it is borderline crazy- LOL! Congrats to your daughter- nice job on her competition! Be prepared to sweat some more when you come to Florida!

  37. Your daughter is incredible. You must be so proud!!

    And way to go on your running streak.
    Last week we had some cooler temps here in TX with all the storms. I even wore light long sleeves a few days!
    My phone is basically my back-up computer. And now that my computer is having issues, it’s my main way to blogging right now. A bit of a pain, but it works! Haha

  41. CONGRATS to your daughter! So awesome! It also looks like you’re crushing it with your steps! Way to go!! I’m not a huge college football watcher, but I’m pumped for my Cowboys to get back in gear!
    Nicole @ Fitful Focus recently posted…Leg & Ab Superset WorkoutMy Profile

  42. Congrats to your daughter! That’s awesome she also got a check to cover her expenses. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a UFC fight and may not be something I could really watch. As far as my phone, yes it is my mini-computer. It’s actually used more for social media and browsing the internet rather than text/calls.

  43. Congrats to your daughter!! We had a great break in the heat last week and this week isn’t starting out too bad either (low 90’s, but I’ll take it for August!).

    I’m looking forward to college basketball! I do try to keep up on football, maybe this year will be the year KU wins more than a couple πŸ™‚
