At this point in the run, like Cousin Eddy standing next to a microwave, I had forgotten my name...pushed a little harder than I was supposed to...but after today I needed the after work burn and play time to make sense of it all. Thank you Virginia forests, you never fail ☮️🏃🏽♂️🍁💙
My son and I have this running joke about waterfalls. A few years ago, I told him we had a little waterfall by our house. I showed him where it was, though, once he saw it he said it was lame 🙄It may not be Niagara Falls but it’s a little waterfall, right? Well that waterfall was raging after all the rain we got so I sent him this pic to show him. I’m sure you can imagine his thoughts. I think it’s cute 😃 #runswithsole#trailtuesday#findthebeautyineverything
🇧🇷 - (ps: minha cara de quem tava aprontando 😂😂)Ver sua irmã só um ano depois? Tava me doendo até a alma! Orgulho demais dessa pequena (que pra mim vai ser sempre pequena mesmo que ja ta do meu tamanho 😂) que tem tanta maturidade e sabe escutar! Muito mais do que eu tinha na idade dela ainda! Feliz demais por ter ela aqui ❤️
🇨🇦 - After an year apart I finally got to see my sister again 😍 I am so proud of her! She is so young but so mature, even more than I was at her age! So happy to have her around ❤️
’Run to the hills’...😅
Without any further reference to the song, I headed on tonights run for my own 70m high slope, just around the corner. Wanted to take my own ole’ model -72 body out for a spin. In pretty good shape, I must say even though a bit rusty in certain places😝 But, all the vital parts incl gearbox still works!!
300 hm on the 9,5 k run, which also is my unplanned #runstreak day no 31! Yay!💪🏻💪🏻
I wonder if 19/20 year old me running around coconut creek and deerfield beach would believe that this is where I’d be at with running and in life.
Training to push my body to the Max at the 100 mile distance.
Can’t lie some days I miss those 3-5 mile runs in a pair of new balances, basketball shorts and a cotton gym shirt. Just a kid running his heart out. No care in the world.
Before he knew about sports nutrition and tracked his every step and heartbeat. When his only gauge was how hard he was breathing, bent over and heaving or not. Gauging the distance in “around abouts”
Gosh, the things I’d tell that boy. The pain he’d experience with every step and breath, he’d feel many more times and it would only get harder and the miles longer. He’d face failures and bad days but he would continue to get stronger.
Buckle up and hold on kid, the ride is bumpy but so worth It.
This past Saturday, I spent 6 hours and 42 minutes running through the muddy woods of Maryland for 31ish miles. I thought about a lot of things. But really I spent a lot of time with myself.
Running is many things for many people, but the one thing you can’t escape is your own mind. Running is a relationship with yourself. I spent many miles telling my legs that they weren’t tired, that the mud was fun and not energy sucking slime pits, that I could catch that runner just around the bend, that I absolutely could do this. Not that I ever doubted finishing but I wanted to push myself to see how fast I could do a 50k on trails (albeit with intense muddy/snowy/icy conditions). Throughout the race, there were moments of intense self-pride. Doing the first 25k loop just under 3 hours was a dramatic improvement from my first trail 25k that I finished in 3:45.
Then, on the second loop, finding the will to just keep running, even though my ankles were trashed and my legs hurt, there was a moment when I was just so proud of my body for doing what I had trained it for I started to tear up. I’m sure my emotions were just exhausted. But when I finished, I finished with myself, for myself, and by myself. I didn’t have friends or family greeting me, but I still had a deep pride of accomplishment because we don’t run for anyone else...we run for who we can become. #medalmonday#phunt50k
🇧🇷 - Daqueles dias que tinha tudo pra dar errado. Minha panturrilha travou, passei MUITO frio. Mas no final saiu um treino LINDOOO. Mais 30km pra conta. Começando a semana com orgulho de mim mesma 😍
🇨🇦 - One of those days that everything went wrong and I still managed to get a really nice run in! Starting the week so proud of myself 😍

So, running an 11 mile work-out after a 10 hour work day isn't ideal 😑 But, the reality is, this is when it could be done today without counterproductively sacrificing sleep. We are currently working to expand our practice further, now that we've gotten through the first few months of being new business owners. That means a lot of balancing and prioritizing 🗒 So, even though I would have loved to execute this work-out on fresher legs this morning - it was a wildly productive day and I'm choosing to look at it through rose colored lenses 😎 Or should I say, emerald colored lenses thanks to @shadyrays 💚 Each pair provides 11 meals through Feeding America & they have a lifetime warranty on broken or lost glasses. Also, they just look really cool & conceal my tired eyes 😂
And here's what did me in tonight: 11 miles, 6:59 pace - 1x3 mile at 6:22, 1x2 mile at 6:15 (doesn't include an annoying bathroom detour 🙄), 1x1 mile at 5:58 to finish strong 💪🏼

She is so happy! I cannot deny her 4.4 miles and a beach day (even though we have a perfectly good beach in the backyard)...
Gozer, our very energetic 9-month-old foster, came out for a mile of my run this morning. It was...chaotic but successful!

The best way to wrap up a picture perfect winter day 😍
Spent the first 10 miles of my run doing a gentle progression (8:34➡️6:33), finished with an easy paced 4.75 miles on the trails & up in the thin air with @mitchellflippin 🧡 Not pictured: the amount of nose..drainage I wiped on my mittens (honestly, the limit does not exist 😳) & the crazy intervals the pups ran around the soccer fields tonight (catch the ball, 400 m sprint × 75 😂). Hope your Saturday was full of things you love 💫 #dominateyourday

Am I the only one who takes 1 rest day and feels like a slob who hasn’t done anything athletic in ages? I took yesterday off (i re-tweaked my knee doing weights, I think, and I’m babying it) but could not wait to get out for these easy 4.5 miles today!
