After a heavy week, I could finally relax and run in peace. I am still fascinated by the power of running over different states of mind. I felt very tired today and I didn’t feel like running, yet, I went out there and after 3 minutes I was loving it! So worth it!

Camping in Brandywine Meadows this weekend after a fun-filled day on Brandywine Mountain.

It may have been t-shirt weather during the day, but it’s starting to feel like winter in the mountains at night! We’ll be digging snow caves in no time. #brandywinemeadows

A quick 2k then get packing!! Forgot my headband again but didn’t actually notice until I was almost done :) I’ve decided that I NEED to run everyday, unless I have a very valid excuse, or it’s too easy to take so many days off. If I feel icky I’ll just slow it down and keep it short. 😊👍 I LOVED reading all the great posts about your long runs, half’s and marathons! Makes me think about it... 🤔 .

Steveston Icebreaker 8km January 2018. This was my first official chip timed race! The winds this day were unbelievable. Running against almost 50km/hr winds was a feat in itself. I had no idea one of my idols @daynapid ran until I looked at the results later in the day.

PNE 5km Donut Dash 2017 - Fun Run with no chip. This was before I had the slightest clue of what proper training, fuel, and lactate threshold meant in the runners world. I still have a long way to go.

Rounded out the week with some trail time around Lower Seymour, on a route that took us down some fantastic high speed rolling downhill. 
It's always a good time with this crew. 😃

That was unexpected. I thought I was undertrained. I knew I was sleep deprived, and not fuelled properly. But, it was a cold, breezy and I somehow managed to find that sweet cruising pace today at the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront (Half) Marathon to beat my personal best!
.
I was close to delirious in the last 3km and I definitely sacrificed a toenail, but it looks like the running gods were happy with the offerings...

New PB: 2:14:21

W10D7: Well that’s a wrap on week 10!! In this photo- occasionally a rural runner must remove big rocks from the road so nobody has a run-in with them. All that distance covered and I saw only one vehicle - I had the whole countryside to myself. Buck Cherry’s Bring It On Back gave me the drive to finish strong today 🎶I got the speed and I got the power🎶 and I arrived feeling strong. Got my 30 minutes of yoga in plus a nice epsom salt bath. Farmer has gone to help someone else wrap up their harvest so when he gets back it’ll be time for 🍿🍷🎬. Happy Sunday all. Big congrats to all of you who crushed races this weekend 🙌🏼❤️!! #strongerthanyesterday #runfarther #ruralrunning #irunthisbody #runnersofinstagram #runnerscommunity #womenrunning #canadianrunning #lovefaithrun

Had great time out there today in the #6ix at @runcrs Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Half marathon. Been five years since racing these streets and the atmosphere in my return didn’t disappoint. Crowds were fantastic and likely the most stacked field between both the half and full I’ve competed in triathlon or running. Ended up running a big #pb of 1:09:28 (3:17/km pace) and 8th Overall out of more than 11000. It will slow start for opening 5km but still had 1:08:xx in my sights going thru 10k in 32:30 but really couldn’t seem to pick the pace up when the time came 12k into the race and my group of three starting to gap me so ended up solo for final 9k. I kind of expected it playing out like that being that in middle of marathon build, still very proud of the time nonetheless, and so happy I was there to witness some fantastic canadian runners performances including @camlevins breaking the Canadian record that had stood for 43 years. Need to give shout to @csbalestrini with absolutely phenomenal performance in the half - seriously watch out this guy is the next big thing in Canadian distance running. Also @captainmorganruns with fantastic result in the full just amazing and happy got to witness just a little bit of it (wish I could’ve helped you out a little from 14-18 or so when you came on by - next time). Thanks @danieljclarke for the photo. .

5 years later since my first ever running race, never in my wildest dream would I imagine of the running state of where I’m at now. 5 years ago then, just started off with my first daytime post-grad job that I still hold on to to this very day. I also had my convocation the day before. Running has since build new social connections, build newfound confidences, keep things humble especially trying times, and keep you up in times of downs. Looking forward to what’s ahead down the road for the love of running

Well here's a wrap up on what was an amazing day for my son and I! Thanks for all the comments earlier!

My son ran his 1st ever full marathon in 3:25:02! So proud of him as can be seen by the big hug at the finish line. We have so much fun running together so to see him achieve this in a better than goal time was amazing!

The 1st picture was taken by a lady in my run club. Many of them traveled from out of town even though not running to support and cheer on those that were. Amazing groups!

My son was 1st in under 20 and 29th out of 178. I was 3rd overall and 2nd in 40-49!

Cheers and happy running instarunners!

I truly can't believe what happened today. I woke up this morning not wanting to run. I took the train downtown not wanting to run. Waiting an hour downtown in the cold I was miserable and didn't want to run. Waiting in the corral I started to cry. And then I started. Got over it and never looked back. I ran MY race at MY pace. And after all the shit that's happened a miracle happened!
I honestly didn't think that I was going to finish today. Never mind finishing with a PB. BUT I finished with a 10km, half marathon AND new marathon PB. There were nothing but smiles today. And happy tears at the finish line. #STWM you did it again!
Last year I finished in 5:33. This year: 5:08! Next year: sub 5! 
I hope that everyone who ran, walked or rolled their way to the finish line has this winning feeling!

. 
Totally my fault but we started in the wrong corral! The good news is that we ended up seeing a lot of people enroute including @optimismninja @wooitsmelody @whiterabbit8 @luis.a.castaneda @runwithmatt @rockyyravi @philodoxs @bridgetking12
. 
So great to meet other fellow #igrunners today too: @jeffaran @reinyroo @that.runner_brian
.
Thanks for the ninja cheer squad @bensaawn @belugasan @amyredpocket @mrdmshern and all those who stuck around after their half!
.
Both my ankles started hurting at about 21k but @belovedrunner ran with me the entire time and she pushed me to keep going. We ended up finishing 4:10 which is a 14 minute PB for me!!! 😍😍😍 I would not have been able to keep up with our pace if I wasn't running with @belovedrunner. Thanks Lisa! You finished so strong today!! So proud of you! #congrats #solemates #magichappens

I'm so happy I shed a tear in my truck after this...no ITB pain, discomfort or even noticeable sensation today 🎉🎉🎉 I'm not convinced from one run that it's healed of course, but this is a big deal. My War on Sitting is working. #sittingisevil

Beautiful morning (AGAIN) with @pacetrailruns today at Smith Creek. So in love with exploring new places around Kelowna with these guys twice a week. Will be sticking to 2x/week running for now to play it safe... happy last bit of the weekend friends

Gawwwd what a spectacular day 😍! So glad I took my run to the reservoir. I can’t remember the last time I ran there. I thought I underdressed in my short sleeve top but nope- it was so perfectly warm but with a slight nip to keep me comfortable. I felt really good too. Just took it nice and easy and enjoyed the run. I haven’t been running much beyond 10k lately so it felt good to get a bit more distance in. Hope you’re all enjoying your Sunday’s!

I leant her my head band recently, and I don’t think I’ll ever get it back 🤷🏻‍♀️😂👏🏼

2018 Toronto Scotiabank Half Marathon complete! Was so honored to run and pace these 2 incredible ladies today. This was a "B" race for me and was a fantastic training run. It was a cold one; but the course was phenomenal and the energy coming from the crowds was world class. With over 10,000 runners in the Half Marathon alone, this was indeed a beautiful experience. Canada's own Cam Levins made history today, shattering the Canadian record in the Marathon in 2:09:25. It was an incredible experience seeing the elites execute. 
Day not done though! Getting through a quick 4 hr shift and then doing pad work. Grateful every day for the opportunity to be an athlete; and to honor and support this body we are given. @distantwanders

Today’s long run powered by two large cups of coffee, good company, arm sleeves and dese guns. 💪🏼

Congrats to this Stallion. 3rd in the 15-19 age group in the Scotiabank 5k today and Top 25 Overall. Just glad to see Marton running again after so much time off. He’s having a pretty good season. We haven’t had any over expectations and crazy goals. Comebacks require patience and time to rebuild. Considering he had a big workout Saturday morning, I’m pretty impressed how well he did on tired legs. I’m confident he’ll dip into the 16 min range by December 2018. 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻 #iloverunning #running #track #distancerunning #xc #crosscountry #runningfaster #runningtime #runningman #runningday #healthy living #motivation #runningmotivation #ilovetorun #runningtoronto #torontorunning #tracknation #trackattack #trackislife #canadianrunning #runningfaster #runninglonger #kidsrunning #runforkids #runningman #runningday #healthyliving #nevergiveup #trisolutionstoronto

Amazing day at the Scotiabank Marathon today.  The day started off perfect.  Relaxed and ready! Arrived at the race village, aka City Hall just in time to meetup with @runthesix and his group.  Thanks Jonathan!  Then I made myself over to the green race corral.  I didn’t have any real race goals but I knew the cooler temperatures would work in my favour.  I started out at a comfortable race pace and just kept going.  When my second 5km was a negative split, I knew I was feeling strong.  Once I passed the 11k mark, I was on the mark to get some kind of personal best for this race.  It was really just a matter of getting to the finish and not losing pace.  Everything kept together until the last 2km where my feet started to get a little heavy.  It wasn’t going to hold me back from a PR because I knew I’d still get one at that point.  I ended up finishing with a 2:06 and change.  My best for this race was 2:10 in 2016.  I just realized this race is the anniversary of my very first half marathon 10 years ago at Scotia.  That dismal 2:47 performance seems so far away from me now.  Just an awesome day all around.  I mean, if I can squeeze out a race PR at this age, I’m over the moon. 🌙  #run #running #runner #inknburn #inknburnalumni #stwm #torontorunstogether #newbalance @newbalancecanada #toronto #scotiabankwaterfrontmarathon #runhappy #irun #canadianrunning #runnersofinstagram #halfmarathon #personalbest #getoutthere

Today was an absolutely amazing day! I got to watch @camlevins in the homestretch as he crushed the 43-year national men’s marathon record. I also got to see a personal hero, @kristaduchene, run the last leg of the race! ⁣🇨🇦🏃‍♀️🏃‍♂️❤️

The day started with tears of frustration because I couldn’t run in the race, and ended with celebratory pints and pure joy. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣

And with today’s walk, I’ve completed the Nessie virtual race from @yesfitchallenges! Why did I finish with a virtual run with a walk? Well, I hurt what I’m pretty sure is my posterior tibial tendon a week ago so I’ve been going easy on my ankle and foot since then. Today was my first day back into things so I stuck with walking and a gentle session on the elliptical. Better safe than sorry when it comes to your health, right? #fitnessjourney #fitstagram #fitness #fitblr #runningprogress #virtualrun #virtualrace #runstagram #running #runblr #fitbit #weightlossjourney #gettingfit #getfitdontquit #canadianrunning #canadaontherun #healing #walking #fallrunning #fallwalking #fallwalk #fallcolours #autumncolours

3:53:01, a (ahem) 42 minute PB. That number itself isn’t impressive- it just shows you how undertrained I was in my last marathons. This was the difference from having a training cycle that wasn’t complete crap.

That said, it wasn’t easy- at all. I’d rank it as my most challenging effort to date. I had planned to go out with the 3:50 pace bunny, so as not to go out too quickly, but I soon grew frustrated by the inconstant pace in the first kms. So, I started doing my own thing- and of course going way too fast, not far off my best half pace. I’m pretty impressed with how long I managed at this pace- it was about 25k before I started hanging on for dear life. It wasn’t a “don’t slow down” thing- it was “don’t slow down too much.” There was a lot of mental math figuring out what paces would get what finishing  times.

The last ~8k were agony- I was still running (mostly- there were a few walk breaks, but I kept them brief) and my legs weren’t cramping, just very tired. It was a mental battle to keep running as fast as I possibly could.

Still, knowing that I was finally going to get a sub-4 marathon- something all my times in other distances indicated was well within my grasp- kept me moving forward, and knowing that I can take a break from marathons (for now) after ending on a good note was also an incentive. I could barely move my legs and felt on the verge of collapse when I crossed the line, but I can say I gave it my all and hold my head high. This year, I actually took advantage of the post-race photo op, and while I looked rough, I wasn’t crying, either.

Thanks to everyone who had a kind word of support!

Yup. I started including  #sundayrunday into my weekly routine, which is something I wasn't sure I'd be able to do until recently, due to a health issue. At first, I hated it. But that morning run is glorious once you get off your ass. I am now part of the psychopathic bunch who workout instead of lounging in pjs on weekends. Like normal people.

Cameron Levins at about the 33 k mark of the Toronto Waterfront Marathon today. He set a new Canadian record at 02:09:24.9 I believe it was his first marathon, not bad. My first one was a tad slower...

Oh, and he placed 4th over all and Daniel Teklebrhan, seen in this shot, was 6th. .

What a great experience! My first official half marathon felt great. Can't wait to do the full next year and keep crushing!

Second postpartum race in the bag! 🙌🏻 Overall, felt pretty strong but went into the race not expecting to PR. Ended up with a new 5K PR of 24:29.4 - 0.6 secs faster than my old PR. And 10th in my age group! I’ll take it! 😂 Felt like I had a bit left in the tank at the end so next time I really have to go all out in the last km. Still, I’m so happy that I’m starting to see a consistent sub-5 min/km race pace! Never would I have imagined being where I am now at just under #3monthspostpartum ! Thank you again to @runcrs for a great event and for the race entry! ❤️Shout out to @variations.ofheather for killing it in her 5k! So nice to see you at the start and finish. 😊💕 Thank you to my mini cheer squad @jonnyrunderful and Lily for coming out to support me. 😘  #stwm #stwm2018 #5k #torontorunstogether

Today was a great day! 5k + 21k double complete!
.
Saw so many friends out running, pacing and supporting all of the 25,000 runners today! Especially my homies at @portland_runners at the 20km mark cheering us on! Thank you!
.
Thank you to @niketoronto & @marknabeta for giving us an opportunity to start our crew out of Portland Street! Y'all the real MVP!
.
Race Report:
Started the 5k off with @ronny006 freezing our 🌰🌰 off because it was -4 degrees in the AM but we stuck to a conservative pace since we knew we still had a half marathon after this race.
.
We finished right under our personal time goal for a sub 20 minute 5k, and quickly jogged back to the bag check to change and do it all over again 😅.
.
We had 25 minutes until the next race! 😝
.
Since we were warm, we changed right in the middle of the street at bag check and slapped our half marathon outfits and bibs on and went to the meeting spot for the pacing team.
.
We waited 15 minutes with about 5 minutes until the half would start - Couldn't find them, so we decided to run to the 1:40 pacer corrale in case they were in there already.
. 
Met with @jiangjade crushing her first 10k ( I'm sure she set a 10k PB) and ran a little a head since she was confident in running with the 3:20 marathon pacer.
.
A little while later, we ran into @thejakemossop @k19gallo @roopruns crushing the half speeding by and we said we'll see them later as we didn't want to leave anyone behind in case they decided to join our pacing.
.
At around 14k, we saw Jade and @cmasssi hovering at 4:45 pace and said they needed a hand - so we paced them through until the finish and was so happy to see everyone at the 20km mark cheering their hearts out! Thank you!
.
With about 1k left to go , I told Jade to give it all she's got as she was coming close to missing her sub 1:40 goal. She gave everything in the tank and came in so close at 1:40:12! She set a new 2 minute PB and crushed it! .
.
The feeling running with friends vs. running by yourself does not compare! Amazing experiences were had today!
.
Congrats to all the homies @rundigsleep @anthonylam85 @dave.runs @thejakemossop @ohsowong @jesse.jpeg @gsyh and many others!

It’s a good treadmill run when you step outside and you’re steaming. A nice tempo in the middle of the run. Nice and slightly uncomfortable, how it should be😝. It’s more miles in the bank 🏃🏻‍♀️🏦 and I’m happy I got up for it.

Dernière sortie de plus de 20km de la #prepamarathon  , c'est que ça se rapproche tout ça! ...ça me ferait presque un peu stresser didonc 😅. C'est bizarre, se préparer pour ce type d' • • #roadtomarathon  #tcsnycmarathon  J-15 . . . . . . . .
Lots of speedy runners on the streets of Toronto this morning.

I did it guys! Got my PB and squeaked in a sub 2! I’m so happy! 🤗 18 months ago I just wanted to finish my first half. My time for that one was 2:14. Then I ran one in Feb and got 2:05 and seeing that progress was so motivating and it made me want to keep pushing. Sub 2 was always a dream but if you don’t dream and set goals you never know what you are capable of. I’m so proud of my hubby Neil too! We do these races together and I’m so thankful to have him crossing that finish line with me!! Love you so much @irunningdad! Thank you for all the DMs, comments, likes this weekend! I was thinking of them when I just wanted to stop running and walk. I didn’t! 😉💪🏻😘

Absolutely perfect day for a marathon yesterday! Ok, so the wind made it tough. As did the close to 4000ft of vert. And the lack of proper training. Put my head down and proved to myself that I could do it; it wasn’t pretty or easy, graceful or without challenges, but marathon number two, and my first trail marathon, is in the bag!
Thanks to everyone for your motivation, inspiration and support, on to the next one! 
This was my first go in the @mec Trail Series and will not be my last! Thanks to the amazing volunteers who made the day a huge success! The #marathondumontroyal was AMAZING!

Hey, @oiselle, is this how to pocket roga? Zoom for #orangebutt c/o some cute Italians handing out water, chocolate, and clementina along the Arno.

So grateful for @aallenmiller and @marathon.momma.11 who dragged my 🍑 through the @freepmarathon half today. I haven’t really run in like 6 weeks and my quads reminded me of that for most of the 2nd half of the race. Don’t know how I hung with these two after mile 10, but fun to run with them.
Haven’t been in this much trouble after a half in quite awhile. Give me all the ice baths and naps.

Funny story. Originally tomorrow’s race was supposed to be my first postpartum race when I registered back in the summer. At the time I had no idea how I’d be feeling by October. For all I knew, I would barely be able to run a 5k at just under #3monthspostpartum . Fast forward to September: I was feeling surprisingly great and itching to race, so I signed up for the Run for Vaughan.
••
Although tomorrow will now be my 2nd postpartum race, it’s still an important race. I’m proud that I’ve already come this far and able to race a 5k at this point in my postpartum journey. I may be a little battered still from my fall a few days ago but that won’t stop me from giving it my all tomorrow. 💪🏻
••
Special shoutout to @runcrs for reaching out to me back in June and setting me up with one of my early postpartum races! Greatly appreciated. 🙏🏻❤️

P.S. I was tempted to rock my wounds for the race photos tomorrow but the face is still a little raw. 🤕As a compromise, I will be rocking a Hello Kitty bandaid courtesy of @jonnyrunderful 😝 #HelloKittyWarrior #stwm #stwm2018 #5k #torontorunstogether

Racing the Scotia 5k! I’m more excited though to finally be racing in our new @portland_runners singlet gifted to us by @niketoronto , can officially represent the crew now!❤️ A good time to give the new Nike Vaporfly 4% Flyknit’s a test run! Also adds a little pizzazz💥to the black & white colourway of my outfit since my pink singlet is officially retired now. Sadly I had to breakout the winter gear a bit early, Speed tights with a thermal long sleeve🙁. Best of luck to everyone racing! In Toronto & Detroit! 🇨🇦 🇺🇸 .

Couldn’t resist heading to the #STWM expo this morning to pick out one of the designs for custom printing, by friend @rkuchinsky. Made a great choice with this @newbalance striped running tank. Looks AMAZING!🙌🏼😄❤️🇨🇦
I have my signs all ready for cheering on friends & strangers racing tomorrow. Good luck all!

I don’t think this ever gets easier. Dream a dream, achieve a goal, get that PB and  dream an even bigger dream, forever taunted and tempted by future memories. 
Busy this evening with a birthday dinner out (because that’s what you should be doing the night before a marathon!!1! I’ve pre-warned everyone that I can’t stay late and won’t be taking advantage of the AYCE menu) so I had to pick out my outfit this afternoon. I’ve raced in several events in similar temperatures and was fine in shorts. I’m 99% sure this will be the top I wear; it has a zippered pouch in the front so I won’t have to fumble around getting gels and can put my sunglasses in if I don’t need them. After much debate I settled on my Wave Riders just because I feel more confident they’ll be better over long distances (Launch 5, I’ll see you at the Tannenbaum). I could be wrong, but fortunately, it’s a purely psychological choice- I can only wish I was fast enough that an ~ounce made a difference in my speed.

I’m pretty nervous, but I’m equally ready to be done with marathons for a bit. It’ll be my third, and hopefully the one that will make me more comfortable describing myself as a marathoner, but ultimately I’m far more content just saying I’m a runner. My identity as such isn’t tied up in a distance.

My favourite distance. The Half Marathon. Mixed terrain course with a few lumps early on but mostly flat, went pretty much as expected which felt good. 1:30:27, course was a bit short so would have been around 1:34. The sub 90 is on for next year with the right course 👍 Kathy’s Run raising awareness and funds that go towards research into the early detection of Pancreatic Cancer

Race pick up complete. Time to relax in the hotel ahead of the big race in the morning! Hoping to wear the tank top option, but could be a bit chilly in the morning!

Dancing, because my run feels so good! I had an amazing run today, but I went to the fridge after for a post run snack and there was nothing there. *

I am planning to do a ton of meal prep today. I’m off to the grocery store, anyone have any ideas? I’ve got four days worth of plans, but could use some ideas *

Training Day # 1.Training for Tokyo officially begins today. T- 19 weeks till I get to do my 1st official World Majors Marathon.
.....
Total 12ish easy going miles before 9 AM. (forgot to re-start my Garmin after .8 miles into the run).
.....
Long run with some great company. 8ish miles before WRC; then 3.1 miles with @winnipegrunclub. .....
Not gonna lie; I'm tired after that long run. This will be my first time training for a FULL. And while I've done a lot of half marathons, a FULL is a different beast. So hats off to the full marathoners running a minimum half marathon distance each week.
.....
And I'm excited to join the FULL bandwagon. Looks like I'm gonna be a regular for the uber early runs on weekends. Cheers to #runnershirlztrainstokyo. its gonna be a fun ride; so feel free to join along the journey. 
Sidenote- Training without music is gonna be fun when you have awesome conversations while running with run friends!
