Moving right along its another 1 mile evening for day 65 of #100DaysOfRunning ... 72 days is my current record. I can't wait to surpass it! I also really need to focus on being more dialed in with my nutrition and being better about planning when I will run. Eating bad makes for sluggish and hard runs. And failure to plan means a day when I planned to run 4 miles becomes a 1 mile night because I'm tired and I don't have enough time. I am totally celebrating the fact that my streak is still going and I've managed to get 1 mile in every day, but I can do better and I have bigger goals!
Day 14: Super slow run/walk on the treadmill today because this cold is kicking my butt. I also had an unplanned dip in the pool tonight. A little tot followed his dad into the pool and the dad forgot his kid couldn’t swim... whoops!😐 #100daysofrunning
Oops. 😂😂 So you know... I haven't been coming to the gym much anymore because I prefer to either run outside or on my treadmill at home. I considered cancelling my membership, but then I thought... Hmmmm I can't really get Panera bagels, coffee, and Dominoes pizza for less than $10. So really as long as I take advantage of those days I can justify keeping my membership. 😆 We use Pizza Monday as a free date night 🙌 ANYWAY yesterday was day 61, 1 mile, and today was day 62, 2.4 miles! #runstreak#100DaysOfRunning

Yesterday was a rest day spent at work...😒 Day 11: 45 minute swim, 30 minute run, and an hour at the gym before work. My new running shoes finally arrived... I can’t believe it’s been three years since I got my last pair of running shoes. #100daysofrunning#runningchallenge#brookslaunch5
1 mile. 5 AM prayer meetings every day this week are wrecking my energy levels 😆 Used my last rest day for Run Bet this week.. So tomorrow I'm going to have to put in some work. What's cool though is I am so beyond dedicated to getting to #100DaysOfRunning . I was telling Michael last night as we got into bed that dying is the only thing that will stop me from reaching this goal. 😂 Today was day 57.. 43 days to go!!
Two firsts for me this year:
Investing in myself and my body by getting my first (two) pair(s) of proper running shoes. (Bank account is not happy, but my feet are!) Also, committing to the 500 miles this year with signing up for the Gold Challenge and a handful of virtual races. I hope to get in 500 miles on my bike as well.
I've let work and life get in the way the last few years, but I'm realizing this "me time" is what I've been missing. Even if it is only a mile after work, my recent running is helping clear my mind, relieve stress and remind me that my health and wellbeing is a higher priority then I've been letting myself think the last year or so.
My knees have been acting up, maybe it’s the weather. But I get out everyday, though this past week, I have only been walking (and not running)...
#TMKrishna was my walking companion today :)
First race of the year, new PR, and earned myself a new corral this morning (H -> G) 🎉
I was hungry during the entire race and inhaled this finish line bagel 🥯 🙏 thanks for keeping me alive #nyrr#joek10k#100daysofrunning

Well dang it. Haha. I planned to get a really long run in. But my phone froze and restarted which obviously stopped my tracking. But I was already over the required 30 minutes so it automatically counted toward my run Bet, even though it wasn't near the amount of miles I wanted. Oh well. Still a BEAUTIFUL day for a run... Cannot believe how mild the weather is in Michigan January. Normally I want the SNOW but I gotta admit for my running purposes I kinda love it 😛 Day 52 of #100DaysOfRunning
Celebrating the halfway point of #100DaysOfRunning tonight!! 1 simple mile and just like that we're over the hill of this thing.
I don't intend to stop at day 100 but it's been a huge mental milestone from day 1! Let's finish strong 💪 #runstreak
Today marks my first run of the new year and the last run of my #100daysofrunning challenge. I didn’t get in as many miles as I had hoped and I definitely wasn’t able to run literally every day (sickness, work, life happens) but I finished this round just in time to start a #2019challenge 🏆

Trying to get earlier starts in 2019. Coffee, devotions, then cranked out 8 miles this morning for day 49 of #100DaysOfRunning
Feeling good! 🏃💪🙌❤ #runstreak
I got to run next to this amazing project in progress tonight... So happy with how it's turning out! Unfortunately, since the resin we just poured needs warm temperatures to cure, I was running in a basement that is MUCH warmer than I am used to. I was sweating buckets tonight. BUT! Got 3.5 miles finished, a good solid run for #runstreak day 48 of #100DaysOfRunning and the first day of 2019!
by @ninamcc23. Biggest difference between Day 14 versus Day 79... I’m actually starting to like it! #100daysofrunning • • • • •
This whole #100daysofrunning thing went from just a silly challenge between me and some friends to seriously rocking my world. As I’m nearing the end, I’ve started writing my experience down as well as some advice/tips I’ve learned (the hard way) along the way. So stay tuned for that if you’re interested in hearing about the journey.
