Not everything is always as it seems...take a peek in my stories to see what I’m talking about ya’ll. To all the women out there...if you haven’t heard it in awhile —YOU ARE AN AMAZING AND CAPABLE CREATURE and you should feel like a badass in your every day accomplishments. +
Sometimes I feel like we are literally juggling so many moving parts in life. It’s important to take a moment and give yourself some credit. Not every day is going to be amazing and there will be struggles. I showed up today and pressed play not because I wanted to...because I didn’t...but because I have developed certain habits and routines to help me go after my goals. It’s on the days that I don’t want to show up that I rely on these habits to do it anyway💪
Palabras muy ciertas en este mundo en que vivimos.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
A veces dudamos del poder que tenemos como individuos pero no hay pero pecado que quedarse callado ante la injusticia. A veces tomarse el tiempo de dar tu opinión, apoyar a un candidato que comparte tus principios (o oponerse a que sean reelectos) hace una gran diferencia. Es difícil estar 100% seguro de que sea la mejor decisión pero siempre y cuando sea para el bien común y te mantienes fiel a tus valores estas en el camino correcto. Creo que el "laissez faire" de los últimos tiempos ha creado las situaciones irracionales que vemos mundialmente. Como parte de tu bienestar total, mantén tu mente activa, participa, y ante usa el poder de la intuición.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Große Ziele erscheinen am Anfang immer unerreichbar. Das Geheimnis liegt darin diese großen Ziele in viele kleinen Zwischenziele zu zerlegen. Dann macht das große Ziel plötzlich keine Angst mehr! 😎
Durch Ausdauer und Durchhaltevermögen lassen sich bekanntlich Berge versetzen. Man muss nur sein Warum finden. Wenn das stark 💪 genug ist, wird euch NICHTS und NIEMAND von eurem Vorhaben abbringen. Es wird immer jemanden geben der an dir oder an dem was du tust zweifeln wird. Sollte die Zahl dieser Menschen zunehmen dann bist du auf dem richtigen Weg!
Those nights where you’re tired and just can’t be arsed but you go and get it done and it makes everything better.
So pleased I went to @crossfittooting tonight - it looked so simple on the board but boy was was I dying by the end.
Have been feeling a bit despondent really - jogged for 8 minutes a week ago and my knee is still letting me know about it.How much more time does it need?!It’s so easy to just give up especially after seeing so many people smash epic runs this weekend.
But I won’t.Because running is bullshit and I love it.
Currently we are sitting at 5 weeks out, well more like 4.5 weeks but who’s counting 🤷🏻♀️ I struggled over the weekend a bit, and then that lead me in to having a rough day yesterday. I’m doing the things you shouldn’t be doing, especially on prep. Comparing myself to other girls, getting down on myself, negative self talk, turning to food when I need to use it as fuel. Grateful for my teammate who I’m also lucky to call a friend who reached out to me to check in on my day 💜 Today is a new day and I’m doing my best to get refocused, because there is NOT much time left, and that’s scary. I don’t want to have regrets when I hit the stage. ✨

People can think what they want about you but the only opinion that matters about you is the one you hold for yourself. Don’t let the negativity infect your mind because all people will ever do is hate. Jealousy is a disease that eats away at people’s hearts. So let the haters rot away and you just live your life. Cause they don’t deserve you. #dontgiveafuck#dontgiveup#dontbitchout#justbeyourself#liveyourbestlife
Back in routine, time with my favorite baby.
Life is gonna happen, time is gonna pass anyway why wouldn't you want to be as happy as possible no matter what?
No matter the final situation I can and will work through it. I won't stop, I cant quit, it's not in my DNA to give up. I want to be the reason even just 1 person sees and decides if she can do it so can I
Transformations arent always physical, it all starts with the mentality and how you think and talk to yourself.
Life no matter what is to be LIVED not just passing you by. It's a choice you must make every single day especially when the curve balls come...and they will
“It’s not about perfect. It’s about effort. And when you bring that effort every single day, that’s where transformation happens. That’s how change occurs”- Jillian Michaels
I don’t post transformation pics often, but after last week’s race and having a huge female following, I felt like my story of transformation should be told again. If I can inspire or help just one person, then I truly feel that I have accomplished what I set out to do when I created Stiletto Running a little over 2 years ago.
In 2011 I ran my first race, a half marathon. I was not a runner, although always athletic. I grew up as a dancer and gymnast with some dabbling in swimming. I was turning 40 and thought training for a half marathon as a bucket list would be fun 😁 Needless to say, I crossed that finish line and was hooked! 29 half marathons, 5 marathons, 4 Ragnar Relays and numerous short distance races, I fell in love ❤️
Running transformed my life in so many ways, but the biggest transformation is the confidence that it gave me to be happy in my own skin. I battled anorexia and bulimia in my late teens and early 20’s throughout college and for a few years after...along with that came depression, poor self body image and lack of confidence.
Running gave me the strength to believe in myself and find comfort with who I am.
I’ve mentioned vaguely over the past 6 months having surgery back in January.
Without too much detail, but knowing this could help other women out there, I ended up needing a full hysterectomy due to some complications and high risk of uterine cancer. As hard as the physical recovery was, the mental and emotional recovery was 10 times harder.
My hormones plummeted, leaving me constantly exhausted, I couldn’t stop crying and lost half my hair.
To get out of bed each morning was a chore.
7 weeks after surgery, I got the clearance to run again. I knew running would make me feel better, but I had a really hard time each morning getting out of bed and out the door.
Slowly, I started to add the miles again & by May I was able to run 2 half marathons. Once again, running saved me.

We all have a reason to get up after we fall and not to give up . We all want to live life to the fullest. Are you living your best you?What’s holding you back?! My main source of hope and peace is God. Can’t imagine a wold where He is not in it . My reason not to quit ? My husband and my children . I believe in them , their dreams and goals . I will fight for my dreams and theirs . When life seems dark there is always light . Don’t give up.
I think that’s a pretty fair statement! When you want something bad enough, you will put in the work, no matter what it is or what you’re striving for!
Do work! Be an example. You have to believe in something.
