β€œDon’t aspire to be the best on the team. Aspire to be the best for the team.” Another year, another Akron Marathon Relay (minus 3 legs) for STDF! The temp and conditions were a little tougher than usual but both teams finished. #weranforJoJo #akronmarathon #relay #strongertogether

I'm going to qualify, even if it kills me! #marathontraining
Ok, today was just way too warm for me. And since I decided to sleep in this morning (absolutely no regrets there) I ended up running at sundown. It was surprisingly comfortable! I've definitely felt a shift in my running lately. There was a time where I wanted to be faster...always faster, but lately I just want to run. I'm not saying speed doesn't matter or that it's not a great goal, but I'm coming to believe that the type-A, constant push for more more more can become detrimental. Sometimes you need to step back and say, "hey, whatever I can get done...that's good enough". Relax and refocus and know that you will be stronger when you decide to jump back into hard and heavy training. When will I get back to that full throttle, get faster/do more type training? I'm not sure, but I'm going to enjoy every mile until then! Hope you all had an amazing day and enjoyed your run, fast, slow or somewhere in between! #myrunstreak day 1,033 #run #runner #running #runhappy #embraceyourpace #justrun #runohio #runnergirl #runnerscommunity #motherrunner #teamfitfam #beyourbest #getoutside #gorun #justkeeprunning #runforfun #iloverunning #positivevibes

Definitely still living on a post-marathon running high. While I can’t say the last 4, or even 9 miles, were enjoyable, Akron Marathon was very memorable! Here’s a recap: 1. In the corral, I realized I was standing next to Kara Goucher. She signed my bib. πŸ™ŒπŸ½ 2. Ran the first 3 with her and within eye shot for the next 10. 3. Knew I had been pushing my pace, but decided to hold on. 4. Ran/walked during the last 4 miles. πŸƒπŸ½β€β™€οΈ 5. Finished in 3:25.. similar to my most recent marathon times, but definitely did not negative split. πŸ˜‚ 6. Got pizza from volunteer, Bridget Franek. πŸ• β€’ β€’ Big thanks to Akron Marathon, all the volunteers, and all the featured children! Those high fives put a smile on my face and fueled me to keep doing my best as it got tough.
Two puppy pictures from today, because she was obsessed with my medals (the clinking I think) and she discovered that air conditioning vents are awesome.
Finished my second @akronmarathon half this morning! Despite the warm temp and humidity and some long hills, I shaved 7 minutes off last year's time! Oh, and one of my best friends ran, with our wives and another best friend cheering us along! A great day it was. #akronhalfmarathon #personalrecord
Hey all! I'm sad to say, my Instagram takeover is now ending. I'm about to celebrate with a few glasses of wine, so it's probably safer to end now before I start posting post-wine 😜. Thank you so much for joining me the last two days. This has been so fun having you all with for for my 5th Marathon! Please join me on my page @elee818 while I document even more of my running journey! I have 5 more Half Marathons this year and would love to have you all come along for the run! Thank you so much again for such a fun experience! 😘😘😘 * * * * #runohio #run #runner #runhappy #runnerscommunity #instarunners #halfmarathoner #marathoner #runnersrepost #runlife #lovetorun #igrunners #runnerland #runnerslife #runchat #iamarunner #womensrunning #runnersofig #runners #runnersofinstagram #womenrunning #runlikeagirl #girlswhorun #marathontraining #running #mmathlete #womensrunningcommunity #mindovermatterathlete @mind.over.matter.athlete
Today, I walk away with so much. A nice September sunburn (but only on the front since I was running directly into the β˜€οΈ), a brand new PR during tough conditions, a bigger heart by seeing how much support I have and overall an amazing personal achievement. These 16 weeks of training were filled with emotion, not because of the hard runs or the 6 days of running per week but the fact that we faced our biggest loss during this cycle. Today would have been the exact day of the beginning of the second trimester, it hit me hard today as I thought of what it would have been like to share the news with the world. Of course I don't think we would have completed 26.2 together in this heat but finishing this marathon was exactly what I needed. I'm not saying I'll forget it forever after this day but it was as if the door closed on such an emotional time for me. I know I say it often, but I will forever be grateful for running. Those days that I couldn't talk to someone about how I was feeling, I could lace up and run. I can't imagine what I'd do if I didn't have this. Thank you again for all of the support, I am happily overwhelmed by the outpouring of love. I will respond to each and every one of you shortly! πŸ’™ * * * * #runohio #run #runner #runhappy #runnerscommunity #instarunners #halfmarathoner #marathoner #runnersrepost #runlife #lovetorun #igrunners #runnerland #runnerslife #runchat #iamarunner #womensrunning #runnersofig #runners #runnersofinstagram #womenrunning #runlikeagirl #girlswhorun #marathontraining #running #runrunrun #runakron #womensrunningcommunity #akrun
I know, I know, I'm overloading your IG this weekend. I'm very sorry, but it will end soon, promise 😊. Today, I walk away with so much.

Saturday is Cross Country day! Our varsity girls took 2nd place at a hilly, sweltering hot meet. Love this picture they took! Both of my kids ran solid races, my daughter getting 19th place in varsity. Way to get it done in tough conditions! πŸ’ͺ🏻.......... #crosscountry #runstrong #runohio #maumeebaystatepark
Ran up and around dimondhead today and was really pushed up those hills. I love the comnaradery and support of the lanikai juice run club! Won some awesome prizes too! . Congrats to everyone who ran the #akronmarathon and #akronhalfmarathon today!
