WEATHERPROOF. It means that when the temperatures drop, when the rain pounds down, when the wind blows, when the sun shines, we’re here. We’re never cancelled. 6 am at the Bean. Every Friday. Join us for this one. #justshowup
All of these people know the drill (and are getting HYPED) for Saturday: meet us at the YMCA on 33rd street for the best cheer station of the @baltimorerunfest - we will be up there from 9:00 AM! 💥 🔥💥🔥 💥
STEP 1: TONIGHT, join us tonight for drinks and arts and crafts, making signs for all the runners! We will be at the @readyroombmore from 7PM onwards! We will have some supplies but feel free to bring some extra posters to share!! #np_bal#justshowup#raceeverything#cheereverything#brf2018
My reaction when hearing people discuss proper running form: "NOONE runs like that. Except maybe Marinello" which then turned into channeling my inner Marinello & wanting a Run Like Marinello shirt. Lol. Dreams do come true.
Big up to the RLM Crew. Antonette we missed you. Nick we REALLY missed you.
Big up to @nmisabella doing pro bono work capturing our pic. Lol
In less than 5 weeks I’ll be racing my second 50k, and I’ve set a pretty big goal for that race. Today’s onion was a 20 mile run through #griffithpark and it did not disappoint. From the #greektheater to the #wisdomtree, down to the merry go round that inspired #Disneyland, and everywhere in between. Are you going to get your #onions today?
Let’s talk about 13.1. 🏃🏻♀️
You see, we have a history. It was the distance I never thought I’d crack. I’ve done 7 half marathons as of now, and I’m not done yet.
Number 2 was the slowest (3:45ish), cause my stubborn, injured self was going to finish that race if it killed me.
Numbers 3 and 4 were almost identical and both times I hit the wall at 10 miles.
Number 6 was my first sub-2 and I thought it was a fluke.
And number 7 was faster because my competitive ass was not going to let that 1:55 pacer out of my sight. And I didn’t.
Moral of the story: consistency and practice are valuable. And the patience is worth it. This victorious feeling is the best.

I only ran 10 miles today. I was tired and my left achilles was tight. And I'm worried about it. I can still add on miles next weekend but I don't want to overdo it. I'm so excited to run this marathon.
And I didn't get into London so I feel like I need to rock NYC.
Anyway...I'm resting, foam rolling and cooking dinner for my friend and I. So life is still very good ♡
Oh and have I mentioned I love running in this city so much?
Two years ago it was 50 degrees, rainy, and so muddy. But it was also my first sub 2 half so I HAD to run the next year... when it was 70 degrees, humid, and so much rain it was hard to see. ⠀
A different person might have said “I’m done going to Staten Island at 6am”, but of course I had to sign up for this race again, and today (FINALLY!) was the definition of perfect running weather. ⠀
And because of that, this is no longer a story about how I’m crazy and can’t say no to a race, but rather about perseverance. ⠀
Never give up, even when it rains. A lot. 🏃🏻♀️💫 #StatenIslandHalf
Wrapping up the race season last Sunday at the #grizzlyultra
The conditions were definitely tough this year on the course for me and lots of others. But that just made it more wonderful to see all my friends complete the ultra or crush a leg or two on their relay team. Seeing you guys cross the finish line with smiles on your face or having fun passing me on the course with cheers and looking so strong just made this race so special and one of the best races of the year for me.
A big thank you goes to @s.e.balla for being a fantastic relay partner. You made the race and the weekend so much more amazing. 📸@rebeccajsmall#twogrizzliesmissingtheirkoala#morethanmiles#raceeverything#explorealberta#ididntgeteattenbyagrizzly
