So here are my #bestnine2017 and it’s not surprising to see that the @abbottglobal @wmmajors feature heavily: from the über high of completing the iconic @bostonmarathon & meeting Kathy Switzer in April, running the @berlinmarathon with friends in September to the lows of another ‘Sorry’ from the @londonmarathon ballot in October. It’s been great year and your support has been much appreciated, I know the mileage has been well down of late and will continue to be until the spring but I look forward to restarting #marathontraining ahead of @chimarathon next autumn. #runner #running #Instarunner #runnersofinstagram #Marathon #Marathoner #marathontraining #abbottWMM #Lifetothefullest #UnicornForLife #wherechampionsrun #StrongerBetterFaster #StrongereveryDay #womenrunners #inspirationalrunners #inspiringwomenrunners #runtoinspire #thisgirlcan #ThisMumRuns #RunMummyRun #stravarun #runtoexplore #runtheworld

When you leave it in the hands of the husband... #elfontheshelf
A veces, algo que está fuera de tus planes te acaba llevando a tu deseado destino. Algo que no tenías previsto puede ser un soplo de aire fresco, lo que active en tí el interruptor que te permitirá alcanzar tu meta, quizá para encontrar otra distinta que colma tu vida aún más. Y dejar que la vida te sorprenda. Tal vez su plan es aún más apasionante de lo que imaginas. . ❄️🔥🏔⛏🤸🏻‍♀️🏃🏻‍♀️💃🏻☀️🍁❤🦋 .

What a year it’s been 🙌🏼 From finishing my first marathon to an over 21 minute PR! Thanks to the great training from @chielgee and motivation from @movinshoes squad 💙 I’m beyond grateful the hard work, LOTS of sweat, and the many tears paid off and I’m excited to keep working and growing! #transformationtuesday #runtoinspire #inspiringwomenrunners #tiurunner
Day 20 of #rwrunstreak was an awesome 5.2 mile run through the resorts in Wailea spreading holiday cheer. I am so grateful for @valleyisleroadrunners and my running ohana. Nothing like sweating with a big group of friends in December! We looked like we had all run through the sprinklers but of course it was worth it to see a gorgeous sunset in paradise. 🎶 Mele Kalikimaka is the thing to saaaaaay!🎶
When the halfway mark of the #RWrunstreak and a great 3.21 mile run with the @noc_runcrew occur on the same day, the hills don’t stand a chance!!! That’s not to say they weren’t a challenge, but I held true to a goal I set for myself shortly after I began running, and ran every step of every hill, no matter the pace. 🏃‍♀️💪😀 Thanks to Marlon and Leah for the company out there tonight. • • Day 20/40 of Awesome Running - ✅ (Thanksgiving ➡️ New Year’s Day.) . . . #teacherrunner #runstreak #nightrun #grouprun #hills #ivegotthis #findyourstrong
#transformationtuesday 3+ months before baby vs 3+ months after baby ... It’s been and it still is an incredible and empowering journey! Conquer all the miles! The best part is getting to look back and think ‘WOW, I did that!!!’💪👊 Baby, of course, came out strong and healthy and totally handsome 😆 . . . . . . . #motherrunner #momontherun #momlife #run #runner #runnerlife #runlove #running #runningmotivation #runnersofinstagram #runningcommunity #womenrunning #womensrunningcommunity #marathonmama #inspiringwomenrunners #rockingmotherrunners #thesemotherscanrun

👇🏽👉🏽 i love bridges. it’s metaphorically, and literally how you get from here.........to..........there.
I wanted to be able to relax and study this morning before finals, so I didn’t actually run today, instead I practiced yoga 🧘‍♀️😌 2 out of 5 finals finished 👍🏻 😄 and 8 more days till my birthday 🎉😆 • • • #runner #runnergirl #running #runhappy #yoga #workout #instarunner #instarunners #finalsweek #runningcommunity #runnersofinstagram #inspiringwomenrunners #fitness #run #yogi
. . . Hit the trails today in the midst of a chaotic day of non stop go, go go and I really think by the time the last kid went to bed, the name Mommy was ringing in my ears. 😂 . Hot today. HOT. I'm seeing all the magical, serene pics of East Coast snow covered Christmas bliss and I'm like 😍😢 - can we have a piece of that. It's really not natural to live in 80+ degree heat in December - that is unless you planned and paid a lot of money to purposely fly somewhere, lie on a beach and do nothing. 😄 . Alas, it is what is and as much as I love living here (so much ❤), I'm hoping my kids choose a college in a cold climate so they can have a dose of reality... and the beauty of 4 seasons. ❄🌱🌞🍁 . So fun running this week - I'm just doing my thing - no agenda, just running, shaking out the legs. . I hope you guys are good and had a great run today! 💖🖐 . . . . . . . . . . #thatsall #randomthoughts #trailrunner #trailrunning #teamwr #marathoner #runnergirl #mountainlife #LAmoms #larunner #lalife #inspiringwomenrunners #socal #optoutside #livejoyfully #findfaster #justrun #runhappy #runshots #beatyesterday #mileschangeyou #yourworldtorun #thesweatlifeLA #training #fitness
It’s so easy for me to go into hibernation mode during the holidays and the cold. I’m thankful for friends who log runs/walks with me in the wee hours of the morning to keep me out of hibernation mode! I’m also thankful for tasty, quick & easy vegetarian meals to eat for lunch while wrangling my class of 5th graders. Did someone say, “Christmas break is coming?!” 😜 Happy Tuesday friends! 💕 • • • #bibchat #bibravepro #luvofood #luvobowl

That evening run view though
Finally got our tree up!! And I got to hang up my medal from this past Saturday (yes...I was lazy and missed #medalmonday 😂). I got this medal for being a top 50 female finisher. And as it turns out, I finished 6th out of over 700 females and 32 out of over 1000 total people! This race made me so ready and excited to start marathon training in a few weeks! 🙌💪 • • • #stayactive #behappy #findyouractive #pushyourself #5k #pr #runner #runnergirl #run #ihavearunnersbody #iamarunner #runstrong #runohio #womenrunning #goals #fitfam #workoutsnap #instarunners #runnersofinstagram #runhappy #inspiringwomenrunners #igrunners #runnershoutouts #runfast #runnershigh #runningcommunity #getoutside #stayactivebehappy
I’ve had this as a screenshot saved on my phone for about the last month. Tonight, my mother-in-law blessed my husband and I with a night out while she watched little britches. I’ve had a rough day trying to square away daycare (which is much harder than I anticipated). There have been plenty of tears today. Torn between going back to work or staying at home. (The latter probably won’t happen, but it really does tug at the heart strings). Anyway, I set out for a three mile run and it was a rough one. I think I’m getting shin splints, yay...But I persevered and finished the distance I set out for. What I guess I’m trying to get at (in a very strange way, sorry about that) is I want my son to look up to me as exercise is a way of life. Not a chore. That it’s just something we do as part of our routine. I want him to grow up healthy and strong. I want him to see me set goals for myself and how we can still continue to thrive regardless of our setbacks. Tonight was a small setback. But it sure as hell isn’t going to stop me. Dream big, Scott. Mommy’s got your back ❤️
30 mins elliptical, run-1 mile-9:13 pace, leg press, biceps, triceps & butterflies 🦋 was able to increase weight on the leg press by 10lbs, biceps & triceps by 5lbs❤️nice to see some actual strength happening ⭐️ My friends funeral is tomorrow- see you Thursday Insta... or Friday. .. #RunSquad #inspire #fitspiration #lovefitnessapparel #RunYourWorld #GoBeyondPace #strongwomen #dothework #strength #cherisheverymoment #s2factionistas #teamlfa #ihavearunnersbody #runlove #runnergirl #Werunthisshit #runnershoutouts #runhappy #fitmom #momontherun #iam1stphorm #fiercewomen #inspiringwomenrunners #monitorthebeat #nogivingup #BadassWomen
Got out for an easy recovery run today. 🙌🏻 Cuz fresh air is always a good idea! ☀️👏🏼🏃🏼‍♀️ My leg is continuing to feel better and hopefully I’ll be able to get back into my marathon training soon... bc time is ticking!! 😬😂Happy Tuesday everyone! 💗😜
If this is what you get after 5 miles and 3,220’ elevation gain...I’ll take another! 🙋🏻‍♀️ #FeedYourAdventure #glacierpoint #yosemite #hiking #runnerscommunity #hikehappy #runstagram #womenwhohike #nps #naturesbeauty #OptOutside #inspiringwomenrunners #womensrunningcommunity
How I crossed that finish line at Run Like A Diva 2017 Half Marathon in Punta Gorda this Sunday! This is when I realized I did get my sub2; that my #garmin time matched the official clock. My arms went up in pure gratitude and joy, thanking God for letting me be strong, to push through, to put my best foot forward, to achieve what I came for. #happiness #lovethispic #praisethelord #runlikeadiva runner #divashalfmarathon2017 #racepics #finishline #gratitude #sub2 #halfmarathon #runnergirl #runnersofinstagram #runnerscommunity #inspiringwomenrunners #womensrunningcommunity #womenrunning #divasrunning #motherrunner #instarunner #floridarunner
There’s no side-by-side, but a HUGE transformation happened this day. 5/9/2015 Fargo Marathon. •• @katie.dougherty recently asked me on a run about my journey to my first BQ. I had never thought of it before, but my brain changed this day. •• I had never followed a training plan or heard of speedwork. I ran as therapy but was bound and determined to break 4 hours for marathon no. 3. I came in with ease at 3:49:49 and was on top of the WORLD! •• The day was cold. It never got above 39 degrees the whole race. 😐 We ran into a bitter wind for at least the last 6 miles. I never even got to sport my wine tank! 😫😆 •• Before this day, I didn’t believe in myself. I just wasn’t “fast” and I’d never be fast. I wasn’t good enough. I’d be lucky to break 4. •• After I crossed the line, I changed my thinking to “why NOT me?” I knew my next marathon would be hard, but I was going to throw all caution to the wind and go for it. •• The following year, I trained my ass off for my BQ attempt (3:35) and I did it, shaving another 18 minutes off my time (3:31:19). •• Guts and hard work. Ugly, gritty stuff. It makes the dream work. Go after it. Chase it. The biggest limitation on you is YOU. 👊🏼 #transformationtuesday #bostonbound
Happy #TransformationTuesday!❤ These are my finish line photos from the Running of the Elves 5k 2016 and 2017. It amazes me that so much can change in only a year.🏃 I started with worn out shoes, sweats, and poor form and I'm a completely transformed runner now! Plus I improved my time on this course by 5 minutes and 38 seconds - with my 2 year old in the stroller!💪 2017 has been the most amazing ride with running and I look forward to even more fun and positive change in 2018!❤. . #finishline #runningoftheelves #movemorefitness #sweatpink
Track Tuesdays with Nike Run Club is back!!! Walked into today’s workout as the first runner to show up this morning and got the best greeting from @coachdanbos and the pacers!!😂 (Also that kind of sounds like a new band name?) This morning’s workout was the best I’ve ever felt with the A team too! Today’s workout was... 12 x 400 @ 10k, 5k, 5k, and mile pace sets. + 1 x 400 for good luck! Can’t wait for next weeks workout 💪🏼💔 thanks to our coach and awesome pacers! #HeartbreakersRun #NikeRunClub #NikeRunning . . . . . . #nike #justdoit #nikerun #nikewomen #runboston #runhappy #inspiringwomenrunners #womenrunning #instarun #instarunners #instarunner #fit #fitfam #fitspo #healthyrunner #marathon #marathoner #trackworkout #training
Just some thoughts about my life on the run. Because what the world needs is another running blog. Link in profile.
What’s a girl to do when she’s bummed about getting rejected from @chimarathon? 😥 Sweat it out @fhittingroom!! 💪🏼💚 Starting to pick up heavy weights again and learning kettlebell tips from the kettlebell queen @laceelazoff definitely lifted my spirits tonight! 🙌🏼 ➖ . . . . . #beatyesterday #strongisbeautiful#runnershigh #runtoinspire #runitfast #runstrong #inspiringwomenrunners #runnerscommunity #runforlife #runnersworld #womenrunning #runlikeagirl #girlswhorun #worlderunners #runnerspace #runnersofig #distancerunner #runningaddict #runnershoutouts #wearetherunners #happyrunner #nevernotrunning #stravarun #garminfitness #tiuteam #bbgcommunity #mindbodygram #whyirun #ilovetorun #irunthisbody
Anxiety. Depression. Therapy. All things that probably aren't talked about enough and definitely have a stigma with them. I can't say enough about how therapy has helped me these past few months. I LOVE it. I look forward to going. I get excited making new connections in my head to old things. I get to know myself on a deeper level and I'm continually learning. The type of therapy I've been doing is called EMDR and I've told a lot of people about it. It stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. It's a therapy that encourages the patient to briefly focus on the trauma (doesn't need to be a big trauma just a memory that you may not have realized affected you even) memory while simultaneously experiencing bilateral stimulation (typically eye movements), which is associated with a reduction in the vividness and emotion associated with the trauma memories. I don't feel like I go to therapy necessarily because something is "wrong." I go to IMPROVE my life. Learn more about myself. Learn how to handle life's curveballs. And really just to have an overall better life ❤ If you're reading this and ever need anyone to reach out to or ask questions, I'm here ❤ I want therapy to be known as a GOOD thing and no one should be afraid to go. Really, it's freaking awesome haha.
Not sure if I'm ready to let go of Fall weather just yet, hence those leaves in the pic!!!🤣 The plan called for a 5 mile strength run, but that sounded a little *boring* to me, so I did 1 mile w/u, 12x 200's, 12x 200 recovery, 1 mile down. Those 200's were anywhere between 6:40-7:20. Overall average pace of 7:34 made me a little giddy! This wasn't an all out effort, I was on my trail on uneven ground, so going all out scares me a bit. Yaaaaayyyy for progress!!! I also had time for 35 minutes of strength, core work, and a bit of stretching!!!🙌👊
It took me a LONG time to realize that I am in control of how I feel & how I live my life. Lots of reading, podcast, & opening my eyes to new things. It's been the greatest blessing ever 💕

Today at #tracktuesday “You have to wonder at times what you are doing out there. Over the years, I’ve given my self a thousand reasons to keep running, but it always comes back to where I started. It comes down to self satisfaction and a sense of achievement.” #runchapina
Yesterday was a much needed complete rest day for me but I got back to it this morning! Ran past these GIANTS 🙀...I’m mean I’ve never seen such ginormous blowups so I had to stop for a picture to document the insanity 😝 It was cold and windy 👎🏻 and I only had time for a run but got in the Booty + Double Abs workout this evening!

4 mile progression run this morning (7:35, 7:24, 7:10, 7:06) Anyone else despise running by bus stops? I try hard to avoid all the bus stops in my neighborhood, but this morning I managed to run by one that had at least 20 kids at it 🙄Haha! Oh well, I still had a great run #runlikeagirl #sweatpink #instarunners

Plan was to run some faster paces tonight but my legs said 🙅🏼‍♀️🤷🏼‍♀️. Instead some easy miles while watching #criminalminds. 📷: taken exactly 1 month ago today when we were FL for a kid-free weekend 😍 #latenightrun #runningmom
My only window to do speedwork yesterday was dark 🌑, cold ❄️, and windy💨....I opted for a sweaty 'mill sesh again....💦 Not sure if that makes me a weenie 🌭 or smart 🤓.....🤔 Cranked out 8x800s and 1x1600 though ✅🤗 * * * #inspiringwomenrunners #womensrunningcomunity #runnerscommunity #zerolimits #embracethepace #goalgetter #getitdone #POWERYOURPASSION #everymilematters #runobsessed #marathoner #imamarathoner #marathontraining #igrunners #instarunners #mileschangeyou #beatyesterday #chaseyourdreams #runyourworld #fueledbyisagenix #isafueled #fueledtothrive #findyourfinish #rundonna #runlikeamother #treadmill #trainingforlife
Guess who got in? Still can’t believe it, got into #chicagomarathon on the first try, year is not over yet and already getting a look at what my 2018 is going to look like 😍, just found out some of the #run4lifeusa ambassadors will be running the same one, can’t wait to meet them. This #marathon was on my list, God willing and I’ll be there in no time.

I haven’t run it yet.🏃🏼‍♀️💨 • My 2018 {and remaining 2017} goals are all about that pace👊🏼 And chipping away at my half-marathon time! I’ve never focused on a specific distance for longer than 1 training cycle...I’ve always just ticked the box and switched to something entirely different...like a 5k to a 50k and from road to trails🙈 But not this time, not this year! This time I’ve decided that I’m going to focus on my favourite distance and see what I can do💪🏼 I don’t have a specific goal in mind, but I know faster times are in my future🎉 SKIES THE LIMIT RIGHT?! • 📷: from today’s crazy fog that has settled on Vancity...you can leave now 🙋🏼‍♀️ // Get inspired with a fresh set of running clothes!

My first ever #transformationtuesday! From my first half in 2015 to my 11th half the other day. I cut almost 20min off my total time. It definitely didn’t happen over night. Actually it took 2 years for 20min but ya know what... I’m super pumped about it!!🎉 You don’t reach your goals overnight. It takes hard work over time to slowly creep toward that goal. Hey maybe in 2 more years I’ll be closer to the 2 hour mark or maybe not, but 1 thing I know for sure. I WILL NEVER GIVE UP! 1 day at a time and 1 mile at a time. Always be creating new goals and challenging yourself! First marathon in T- 26 days!😳🙌🏼🏃🏻‍♀️ #runstreak day 200!!!💪🏼 ______________________________ #goals #goaldigger #transformation #runchat #run #runners #runner #rundisney #WDWmarathon #marathontraining #runninggirl #womensrunningcommunity #instarunners #inspiringwomenrunners #flexitpink #halfmarathon #werunsocial #holidaySTREAK #streakingwiththecoolkids #runningwiththecoolkids #irunthisbody #teamsparkle #runhappy #running #runnerscommunity #workoutmotivation #fitness #beatyesterday
