Post 8 miles with every other mile at race pace.😳 WHEWWW happy thats over! 😂 I paced much better than I expected so I’m PUMPED!🙌🏻😬 Cooling down for 20...or 60 minutes and getting ready to enjoy tomorrow’s off day ☀️👍🏻
L’infinito è la’ dove si perde lo sguardo,tra il blu del mare e l’azzurro del cielo. Ma è anche dentro di noi. Credo che la corsa alleni non solo il corpo,ma anche lo spirito, a guardare oltre l’orizzonte: quello che solo il nostro occhio interiore può vedere; capacità che esclusivamente attraverso un alto livello di concentrazione e di equilibrio possiamo raggiungere. È in quel momento che scopriamo le nostre doti nascoste, forze che non sapevamo di possedere, emozioni che non credevamo di poter provare ❤️è un ricongiungimento con noi stessi,ed è bellissimo.

You can buy all the pretty coffee mugs in Anthro. You can screenshot every motivational quote you see. You can pin every inspiring quote card on Pinterest. You can do all of these things and more and still feel unmotivated. Motivation isn't about *wanting* to do something...motivation is about having a WHY strong enough that you'll do things you don't feel like doing. Why THIS dream? Why THIS goal? Why THIS need to get healthy? Why do you NEED to get out of debt? Why do you NEED to go back to school? Why do you NEED to reach a new revenue goal? Why do you NEED to grow your team? WHY? You have to know! Your goal is a fire in your belly...your WHY is the gasoline. And guess what? YOU can be your own reason why! In fact, you should be! You matter! None of us are promised tomorrow. Get up and make the most of today while you still can! After chatting with a friend who was lacking motivation today, you can bet I found a way to get 20 minutes in on the #dreadmill today. I hate the treadmill. I had a ton of excuses. But thank God I am ABLE to run on the treadmill. I will not squander this *one* life or this *one* body. I’m so glad I did it. I’m worth it. And on the treadmill I always get to work on pace to keep my mind interested. #twentyminutesnoexcuses#dream#believe#achieve#dreambigger#motherrunner#runnermama#runinspired#runhappy#runnersofig 🤗👊♥️

Day 30. Wow. I am so proud to be a member of this team. The inaugural team Boston sure will be hard to top by teams in years to come. Today I had the pleasure of running with the other “washed up” college runner on the team, Justin. It’s so fun to talk about running, push each other, and challenge each other to keep ourselves from being anything but washed up!!
Last night he talked about running for those who cannot. My health, my life, and my running ability are things that I never thought I was taking for granted prior to 4k. Now after 30 days of reflecting on the miles through national parks, dirt roads, small towns, and big cities these amazing teammates of mine have helped me to truly appreciate everyday for the little things.
Today my miles were dedicated to Courtney and my teammate Ryan’s Uncle Steve. Courtney was such a warrior. She never complained when anything got hard, but instead looked within herself to find strength. I wanted to channel that memory of her into my miles today. I also wanted to dedicate my miles to Ryan’s Uncle because today he’s running home/to his family!! There’s something really special about running to see the people that raised the friends I’m lucky enough to call my teammates. #cancersucks#runningforacure#runinspired#everymilematters#runforthosewhocant#runinspired#makeadifference#4kforcancer#teamboston#eatclean#strongereveryday#getoutside#explore#runforacure#4000miles
W4/R14: Track Monday! Well, sort of. Last time I did strides I was on hilly roads and my foot/ankle was NOT happy about it. So today I ran 5 easy miles on the road and then finished up with 3 miles on the track, with 100m strides and 300m jog. It seemed to do the trick, no pain at all! Everything was great until I tried to go home and my car battery was dead. 🤦♀️ Thank goodness my friend was there to help. Now my Monday plans include putting a new battery in my van. 🚙 Happy Monday everyone!
Fun morning with these amazing women! My friend @jenniferwemstrom hosted the most beautiful and thoughtful run this morning that she called a “Thank You” Run. She planned a 4 mile route that stopped at 4 different places. Each one of those places reminded her of one of her friends in this photo. She strategically placed a bag at each location with a beautifully written personalized note for each one of us and a @momentumjewelry wrap with a custom message for each one of us. It was so special and brought each one of us to tears. What an amazing and special friens, and it was truly a wonderful and memorable morning. Thank you Jen for being you! Love you! 😘
