have you got your hands on the all new Mizuno Wave Inspire 14’s yet 😍 ... what’s not to love 👌🏼
throwback thursday ... that day I finished New York City marathon ... the emotional roller coaster of finishing a marathon ... one minute you’re smiling the next minute you’re in tears ... well that’s me anyway 😃😏☹️
as if friday could have got any better ... thank you @mizunorunningaus for the delivery of the new Mizuno Wave Inspire 14 👌🏼
No Turkey Trot, and NO running at all for me today. Running hasn’t felt good for the past two weeks, and I haven’t even run since last Friday. 😭 I haven’t really done ANY kind of exercise since then. It SUCKS and has been driving me totally crazy, but I have to keep reminding myself that my body is telling me I need to back off for a bit. I’ve been in training mode essentially nonstop since last August. In the past 15 months, I’ve completed 5️⃣ half marathons and my first 2️⃣ full marathons!!! I love running!!! It is my drug of choice!! I’m a better me because of running. My head and my heart want to run FOREVER, but this body is telling me to take a break, RECOVER. Today, I’ll just be thankful that I’m not completely broken, there are many things I can still do, and that I will be able to run again soon. ____________________________________________________________ #marathoner #marathonrecovery #marathonerlife #lifeofarunner #embracethesuck #embracethejourney #wisconsinrunner #runwisconsin #wisconsinrunning #inspiringwomenrunners #womeninspiringwomen #momsinspiringmoms #goalchaser #runjunkie #runhole #crazymotherrunner #notrunningsucks #runnernotrunning #selfcareeveryday #strengthtrainingforrunners #thankfulanyway
had some fun reflecting ... there were some teary moments working through these ... made me realise even if I never run again I can still be proud of some big milestones and achievements ... some I loved ... some I hated ... and some just happened along the way ... running ... it's awesome 😍🏅🏅🏅
seriously mom ... what's all the fuss about ... my collar is much prettier 🙄 ... 🦏
I could be sulking over the ugly weather... I could be throwing a pity-party-for-one over being a deer hunter’s widow and a single mom of 3 boys for 4 days... But, I’m CHOOSING not to! Ok, maybe I will just a teeny tiny bit deep down, but NO! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I went grocery shopping alone! I hand-picked all of the fresh, delicious goodies that are going into my “Thanksgiving-in-a-Jar salads next week! I can still run, and run outside! I didn’t have to pack any school lunches this morning! One boy will be away at basketball practice tonight! I’m hosting a team meeting for 13 awesome mother runners tomorrow morning! My oldest and I are watching Kimberly High School football together!! Keep the streak alive, GO PAPERMAKERS!!!! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ CHOOSE to see the good in life! I may also choose not to cook and enjoy an adult beverage tonight!!!😉 ___________________________________________________________ #marathoner #marathonrecovery #marathonerlife #lifeofarunner #embracethejourney #wisconsinrunner #runwisconsin #wisconsinrunning #fvtctrails #inspiringwomenrunners #womeninspiringwomen #momsinspiringmoms #goalchaser #runjunkie #runhole #crazymotherrunner #momof3boys #boymomlife #lifeofaboymom #aspiringentrepreneur #hunterswife #choosetoseethegood
We weren't kidding about the #MarathonerLife 🏃 #MADMarathoners #GoHeritageRun
Easy miles should feel GREAT, right?!?!! This did not feel great... 😞 The gloom, the wind, the rain, the lack of waterproof and wind-resistant clothing, the aches and pains... It all sucked! Even breathing felt hard today! From the moment I stepped outside, I wanted it to be over. I turned around to go back inside, but then turned right back to the road to just get it done. I did it anyways for the #mrttappleton November Challenge. 😂 I did it anyways because these are the types of runs that are good for mental toughness. I did it anyways because it was NOW or NOT AT ALL. I did it anyways because I knew I’d feel better afterwards. And, I do!!! Lunch and a hot shower are going to feel great now, too. 😉 ___________________________________________________________ #marathoner #marathonrecovery #marathonerlife #lifeofarunner #embracethejourney #wisconsinrunner #runwisconsin #wisconsinrunning #inspiringwomenrunners #womeninspiringwomen #momsinspiringmoms #goalchaser #runjunkie #runhole #crazymotherrunner #runningsucksdoitanyways #mentalflexibility #runformentalhealth #mentaltoughnesstraining #runforthehealthofit
resilience is accepting your new reality, even if it's less good than the one you had before ... you can fight it, you can do nothing but scream about what you've lost or you can accept that and try to put together something that's good ... elizabeth edwards
Yes I Can-berra 2of3 | I had always thought "one day". "One day I'll climb a mountain, one day I'll be on a stage in front of thousands, one day I'll volunteer in africa". Well I am proud to have said "today" I achieved my goal of running my first marathon. Here's to changing all those "one day goals" to today. ___________ Marathon vlog live at the link in my bio 🤗 ___________ 📸by my good mate Con. Thanks for the support you legend
After three days of NO running, I couldn’t take it anymore!!!! 😫😭😱 I mean, I REALLY needed the break! My right hip and knee needed the “rest.” They need new shoes, too, so I’ll get around to that SOON. 😉 But, I answered the call to the pavement right away this Monday morning!!! Cool, clear, crisp, and even frost-covered ground. 4.4 miles ✅ ___________________________________________________________ #marathoner #marathonrecovery #marathonerlife #lifeofarunner #embracethejourney #wisconsinrunner #runwisconsin #wisconsinrunning #inspiringwomenrunners #womeninspiringwomen #momsinspiringmoms #goalchaser #runjunkie #runhole #crazymotherrunner #mondaymiles
didn't realise how much she'd grown until I put them next to each other 😳 ... wonder how big she will be in 2020 🏅🏅🏅

early days ... when you're still on that runners high & the fact you have to get through 42.2kms hasn't quite set in 🙌🏼
still smiling ... that's 20,622 seconds of pain for some pretty awesome bling I will have forever 😍
I'm home safely & unpacking ... reflecting on an amazing trip & experience ... you have a few more NY posts to endure so I hope you're not sick of them yet 🤣
I don’t know what’s going on this week... But, my boys have been absolutely crazy and driving my husband and I crazy!!! I am sooooo thankful for this time I can steal during the day to enjoy the peacefulness, the quiet, these beautiful surroundings, and to do something GOOD for this body (and mind). It was a chilly 27 degrees with 20mph winds and a feels-like temp of 15 degrees. But, you know what?!?!! I never felt cold (thanks to some awesome layering), didn’t hate it, actually loved it, and just couldn’t get enough of this trail!!! I wanted to take so many more pictures, but my phone wasn’t having it (it hated the cold)! 😄 I even got to run through the first snow flurries of the season (swipe to see the video)!!! 😍 This REALLY is my happy place and what I’m meant to be doing!!! 🏃🏼‍♀️💜 ___________________________________________________________ #marathoner #marathonrecovery #marathonerlife #lifeofarunner #embracethejourney #wisconsinrunner #runwisconsin #wisconsinrunning #runningforsanity #runforthehealthofit #inspiringwomenrunners #womeninspiringwomen #momsinspiringmoms #goalchaser #runjunkie #runhole #crazymotherrunner #fallismyfavoritecolor #wearalltheclothes #wearallthelayers #runningonfaith #thisismyhappyhour #thisismyhappyplace #momof3boys
New York City Marathon 2017 ... I know I haven't really talked about my day and that's because it's so tough for me to accept that I had to walk New York this year ... and don't get me wrong walking a marathon is much tougher than running one on a whole lot of levels - I think I'm qualified enough to know ... Starting at the back of the pack is never fun ... the drink stations are a challenge ... I slipped a handful of times coming through them even though I was super cautious ... finishing in the dark takes away a lot away from that finishing moment ... the crowds have thinned and the buzz is just not the same ... However - I would do it all again if I had to ... because to me completing a marathon (regardless of whether I ran, jogged or walked) is the ultimate achievement ... you are tested on so many levels both physically & mentally ... working through those challenges is something you can only do for yourself & by yourself - nobody can make this process easier on you ... I always knew I was going to be out there for a very long time on Sunday ... a whole 5:43:42 in fact ... my biggest issue was staying focused after the 25km mark & still trying to have fun and take everything in once it started to get dark, crowds had thinned & I was cramping badly in my feet ... Somehow I did pull everything together though & crossed that finish line ... proud that I still gave it a crack knowing it would be my slowest marathon ... This photo captured moments after I crossed the finish line sums up just how I felt ... broken ... after working so hard to come back from last 18 months of significant injuries and falling short 6 weeks out ... once again having to refocus & accept that I would not run has been a tough journey. ... Now I have to take 6-8 weeks off running and then have more scans on my hip to assess where to from here ... At this stage I have no plans to run a marathon next year ... I have no doubt I will run a marathon ... who knows where that journey will take me though ... you will just have to stay tuned to find out 😚 ... Thanks once again for all the tremendous support you have given me through the highs & lows ... always makes this my happy place 🙂
almost forgot ... 5th stop ... Grand Central Station
Because it seems like the cool thing to do - today's #tbt is to when I got this beautiful email 2 weeks ago 😍 #chicagorunners #ChicagoMarathon #chicagomarathon2018 #marathoner #marathonerlife #iloverunning #womensrunning #womenrunning #training #improving #itsawayoflife
goodbye New York City ... it's been grand ... but I'm really looking forward to seeing my boys ... 📷 @runnin_rach

4th stop ... a little New York City ❤️
3rd stop ... manhattan skyline 😍
All throughout today’s run, I asked myself “Why couldn’t I run like this a few weeks ago?!!!” “Why does running feel so easy today when it felt so much harder during my marathon?!!!” I even messaged and shared my splits with my best running friend afterwards. I did what I could, and am proud of what I did throughout training and finishing Marine Corps Marathon 2017. But, this also leaves me hungry for more and proves that I’ve got more in me than what I’ve seen. “Faith sees the invisible, believes the unbelievable, and receives the impossible.” Faith dares. Faith believes. Faith speaks. Faith sees. Faith goes. #runningonfaith ___________________________________________________________ #marathoner #marathonrecovery #marathonerlife #lifeofarunner #embracethejourney #wisconsinrunner #runwisconsin #wisconsinrunning #inspiringwomenrunners #womeninspiringwomen #momsinspiringmoms #goalchaser #runjunkie #runhole #crazymotherrunner #fallismyfavoritecolor
2nd stop ... lady liberty 🗽
took her on a tour of the city today 😍 ... 1st stop ... brooklyn bridge you are one of my favourite spots on earth 👌🏼
that day I walked New York City Marathon ... those bridges 🙄
when you're cheeky enough to stop and ask a NYPD officer for a kiss 15km's into a marathon 🙊
there she is 🗽 ... so beautiful and worth every step of the way 😍
Marathon recovery - Week 2 Just over 15 miles of running logged... Two days of strength training left me SUUUPER sore... My right TFL is still cranky... 😣 This body is telling me I need to get back to work with my foam roller, resistance bands, and GOOD stretching in this week ahead!!! But, my heart is happy and incredibly excited to start work with coaching my very first athlete for her very first marathon!!! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 ___________________________________________________________ #marathoner #marathonrecovery #marathonerlife #lifeofarunner #embracethejourney #wisconsinrunner #runwisconsin #wisconsinrunning #inspiringwomenrunners #womeninspiringwomen #momsinspiringmoms #goalchaser #runjunkie #runhole #crazymotherrunner #fallinwisconsin #fallismyfavorite #fallismyfavoritecolor #runcoach #runningcoach #marathoncoach
the harder the struggle the greater the rewards ... I finished 🏅
My only goal is to improve. Finally I made it, my new PB for 32k (☝︎ ՞ਊ ՞)☝︎
Happy NYC Marathon Day!!! Rocked my Brooklyn Half tank on my run! I ran 5 miles this morning through 98% humidity! Felt like running through a sprinkler the whole time! Now I’m relaxing and watching the NYC Marathon! So excited for the runners today! Good luck to Kristine, Jenna, Nancy and Allie today! So cool to see Allie with the elites! Can’t wait to see Kevin Hart Finish! And go Shalene!!! So wish I was there! #run #runner #running #runnergirl #runnerlife #runnerscommunity #runnersofinstagram #instarunners #igrunners #marathoner #marathonerlife #halfmarathontraining #rnrsanantonio #runtexas #rundelrio #runlaughlin #nikerunning #sundayrunday #justdoitsunday #jdisunday #5miles #sundayisforrunning #nrc #whorunstheworldgirls

Closing in on 10K kms 🏃🏽‍♀️🏃🏽‍♀️🏃🏽‍♀️. 2018 I’m coming for you! #nikeplus #runnersofinstagram #marathonerlife #marathontraining #road2hope #cantstopwontstop
found my name on the wall 😍
It’s certainly not getting any warmer, our time in daylight is getting shorter, and my wardrobe is quite sparse when it comes to cold weather running apparel. None of this will be an excuse, though! I will run outside for as long as I possibly can! I will run on a treadmill ONLY when it is too dangerously cold to be outdoors. Temps in the 30s... I can still do this and LOVE it! 4 miles on a Friday with negative splits and the sunshine... #thisismyhappyhour ___________________________________________________________ #marathoner #marathonrecovery #marathonerlife #lifeofarunner #embracethejourney #wisconsinrunner #runwisconsin #wisconsinrunning #inspiringwomenrunners #womeninspiringwomen #momsinspiringmoms #goalchaser #runjunkie #runhole #crazymotherrunner #fallismyfavoritecolor

Good luck to everyone racing in Indianapolis and NYC this weekend!! #huskerwifeirishlife #chasethebirdchallenge . . . . . . #oiselle #oisellevolée #indianavolée #runsouthbend #indianarunner #runnergirl #runlikeagirl #runner #runnersofinstagram #nurserunner #marathoner #marathonerlife #runlife #5ktraining #brooksrunning #runhappy
