Life is too short to simply walk the beaten path. Nurture what moves you. ✌🏼

Reason why this is not a photo of a mountain, trail, or me running 😅, it’s because I noticed something today when glancing over my @strava profile . . .
.
During the start of this year, I made a commitment to myself — to train full-time, to get serious, to go all in, and to dream big. At that time, I also set a random goal of running 1,000 miles by the end of the year. Well, here I am, with 3 months remaining, and I have already surpassed that goal 😁. Seeing this brought me joy, excitement, and even shock, considering I’m still fairly young into my running career (<2yrs). But what makes this special, is that it reminded me that it has never only been about achieving a certain goal or objective. Rather, it has always been about the journey. While goals are important and necessary, the most fulfillment I have found has been through the process to get to where I am today. That is — the daily grind, the challenges and sacrifices, the long hours, the trial and errors, the risks and adventures, the new friends and places, all the food 😋 and sleep, and all the smiles, pain, and laughs in between. And while this process may seem lonely at times, by no means have I achieved my success without all those involved behind the scenes (you know who you are). So, thank you. 👏🏼
.
Now, at the end of the day, this milestone will soon fade and be but a small piece of my overall journey. Hence, I always remind myself every morning to embrace the process, keep moving, and have fun.
.
Cheers to 1,000 miles and counting 🙌🏼. And let’s not forget that progress isn’t linear . . .

Even though I’m drifting away from OCR to focus primarily on ultrarunning, that doesn’t mean I can’t have some fun and challenge myself at the local mud run. Great morning racing with my S&C coach @iron.bubbles! While I can’t brag that I beat him to the finish line, I walked away with a smile and some good laughs. @terrainracing Tarzan Swing 🐒 obstacle is no joke by the way.

Surround yourself with like-minded people, who push you, bring out the best in you, and is not afraid to crawl in some mud with you. 🙌🏼

There is something magical that comes from standing on top of a mountain among the clouds. Even though I was not able to see the horizon, I was gifted with a sense of serenity and excitement unlike any other.

Sometimes it can be easy to get caught up with the day to day routine of life, resulting in times when things get unclear and you may start losing sight of your goals. It is during those times that relying on things you trust is important. For me, these things—adventure, the outdoors, the gym, running, spontaneity, my family, close friends, a warm cup of tea, dark chocolate . . . they ground me, bring me back, clear my mind, help me regain focus, and keep me moving forward. Stay present and mindful. Find and do more of the things you trust in life.

With every mile and every foot climbed, nothing seems impossible or unattainable. Run far. Run high. Be free.

With summer just around the corner, there are endless adventures to chase. Let the good times roll! 👍🏼

#tbt to my first road marathon earlier this month. A PR, a division first place, and a top 25 overall finish. Anything is possible if you stay in the race. Believe, stay present, keep pushing, and most importantly, enjoy each moment you can. Now let’s go have some fun! #goodvibes #summer #adventureawaits #havefun #marathon

As I went out for a run to explore the City of Austin, I came across four simple words that reminded me how important experiences are. Whether it’s traveling, taking on challenges, spending the weekend with your closest friends, swapping stories over dinner, meeting new people, or taking a back road home, the more experiences I collect, the more meaning and purpose I find in my life. Collecting experiences has given me a bigger sense of fulfillment, and in return, it has inspired me to continue to work on becoming the best version of myself.

Keep moving, keep writing your own story, follow your own journey, and fill it with experiences. #liveagreatstory #goodvibes #experiences #collectmoments #weekend #austin #austintx
