Took 3 days off from working out and was back at it today! FELT SO GOOD to be at the gym doing Bodypump over lunch!  Definitely one of my happy places!  #keepingitreal #teamrttf  #runbecauseyoucan #milesandpace #milesandpacefam  #runtheyear2019 #womensrunning #werunsocial #leaveyourlegacy  #forwardisapace #fitover40 #instarunners #run #fitness #womenshealth #bodypump #runalways #yoga #namaste
I know I complained a bunch about the last two weeks not being able to get very many miles in. My daughter had surgery, volleyball tournaments, and we poured cement. Those were of course just the big things. In all reality I think my body needed the rest. I know it's been under 5 miles each time but the miles have been magical and that's all a runner can ask for! • • #magicalmiles #runnergirl #fitrunner #workout #run #runner #running #runlife #runhappy #happyasaclam #runstagram #runnersofinstagram #runforlife #goodliferunning #irunthisbody #ihavearunnerbody #motherrunner #momswhorun #runnermom #momlife #girlsberunning #womensrunning #runningcommunity #inspringwomenrunners #runthefork
I’m not feeling great. Just a little run down with some tummy issues. I pushed my goal pace run back and just did an easy run today with the pup. I walked my warm up and cool down and just kept the pace very slow and easy. And I brought along my  @aftershokz Aeropex (so comfy) and My Favorite Murder to keep me company. I love listening to podcasts on my easy days with my @aftershokz. Heading to bed early tonight to try and get some rest.
Past two days have been so horrible. Like a brick on my chest the anxiety killed me. Hopped on the treadmill for a quick and easy 5 mile run. It’s Halloween time, there’s at least something to look forward to 🎃 . . . #putcanonyourassandtry #stronger #running #womensrunning #runlife #keepshowingup #runningcommunity #womensrunningcommunity #girlswhorun #gorun #iloverunning #happyhour #runnershigh #beatyesterday #runner #njrunner #instarunners #doepicshit #keepfuckinggoing #thisgirlcanrun #neverthelessshepersisted #icandohardthings #finishwhatyoustarted #runnersofinstagram #goalgetter #marathontraining #marathon #baltimoremarathon

I am FEELING BETTER! 🙌🏼🙌🏼 After yesterday’s morning run ended after a mile due to my stomach hurting I did manage to run 3 more miles yesterday evening, but my stomach still hurt a bit and I took it very easy and slow. My legs also felt really heavy and sluggish last night. I think my stomach problem was because I didn’t eat solid food for over 24 hours and during that time I totally emptied my guts out being sick. So any time I ate yesterday my stomach just kinda hurt, in a bloaty gassy way. It wasn’t pleasant but today it’s been back to normal after a full day of eating regular food again. Tonight’s run felt really good and I threw a few short pickups in since I had planned on doing a last workout on Monday before my half this Saturday, which I didn’t do, because #barfing and #fever.  Still holding out hope I can put together a decent race on Saturday even though apparently the universe hates me, lol. I normally take the day off running two days before a race, which is tomorrow, and I think I am still going to do that even though Sunday and Monday were unexpected days off. Might as well ride this taper train allllll the way in, ha.
It was a take all your kids to the rec center kind of night. I even ran into a friend’s husband who said “ah, late start for you”. Nope. This is the actual time I get home, people. . 5 easy miles on the treadmill that actually felt... easy! Also finally got to sport my #akronmarathon #goodyear10k shirt for the first time. . . . #halfmarathontraining #womensrunning #morherrunner #treadmillmiles #5milerun #easymiles #motherrunner #bamr #fitmom #akrun #akrunner #runohio
When they say “taper crazies”, do they mean happily running in the pouring rain? ☔️ . 3 days out! #marathontraining #myfirstmarathon
#ad I am proud to be partnering with @ASICS in their initiative to promote a strong mind and body thru physical fitness.

2 more miles at work to complete a weeklong run streak. It’s crazy to think that this wouldn’t have been a big deal 6 months ago, but since starting over after being sick, it’s almost shocking to me that I actually can get these miles in!
We’ve officially been homeowners for 2 months 🎉 •• I knew I would love living with Q but it’s seriously the best! One of my fav things is how Q makes it a point to sit down for dinner at the table every night. . •• This is so important to me! I grew up with a family that sat at the dinner table and so did he. . •• &&& having @cleaneatzknoxville meal prepped meals for the week gives us more time to do our work and workouts, spend time in the house & together, and the only thing I have to worry about is planning dinner. . •• Does your family sit down at the dinner table?? What’s your favorite thing about living with your significant other?? #ad
I’m about to make your day with a few things about today’s run: • 1. I ended up on the wrong side of the river and had to backtrack only find out that I just didn’t look hard enough for the path that would have gotten me home on time. #directionallychallenged  2. I ended up finishing my run no where near home because of the backtrack so I had to Uber home so I could pick up my kids sort of on time 🤦‍♀️ (hence the pic at my kids skipping) 3. It was a long run. And I had to pee. Thought I was safe under this bridge. I WAS NOT SAFE. Mid pee I turn around and there’s a biker. I kept peeing. He kept riding. No one said a thing. I can only imagine the story he’s telling his friends right now. There’s my white ass hanging out as he turns a corner 😳😳• • 22.71km in 2:12:02, average pace of 5:49. • • • • 🏃🏼‍♀️💨💨💨 #run #running #runner #runhappy #runyyc #instarunner #instarunners #motherrunner #womensrunning #strongasamother #newbalancerunning #nopausesquad #adventuresofpaula
There’s something incredibly special about your first marathon. You never forget it. There’s all the feels. It’s an incredible experience and so so special ❤️ And @relentlessrunners athlete Sarah just ran her first marathon in Chicago on Sunday and did SO amazing! All the coaches were able to see and cheer her on at mile 1 and again at mile 26 and to see her pushing herself through the pain was so inspiring!! She started having muscle cramps in her legs around mile 23, so bad that she stopped and couldn’t bend her legs. A woman ran over to her from the sidelines and started massaging her legs and said to her, “you’re GOING to finish.” Sarah kept telling herself that and then the cramping eased up and kept running to finish in 4:19:51 🔥🔥 Awesome job @sayshow09
Suddenly it’s winter and friggin pitch black by the time I finish my run, so indoor selfie it is.  6 miles! I’m not doing any official speed work during this cycle except for goal pace runs on alternating Saturdays, but I am going to try Hal’s 3/1 method if I have extra left in the tank during the last quarter of some of the runs. I did tonight and kicked this baby up a notch the last two miles, and it felt REAL good.
My running journey is so much richer when I share it with others. Thanks @spotify and my buddy @broncorefitness for letting me lead these awesome runners through the streets of Beantown each month! #iloverunning #runclub #spotify #bostonrunners #broncorefitness #runitfast #womensrunning #igrunners
I’m at the point in training where coffee consumption is at an all time high. There’s always a source of carbs nearby. I seem to always be charging my headphones or Garmin. My bag of running clothes is a staple in my getting ready for work routine. . I don’t have much to say about this one. My legs felt tired for 80% of the workout and the cold, windy, rainy weather didn’t help, but I’ve got a marathon on my mind. I kept repeating “how bad do you want this?” to myself during my repeats and it helped me climb out of those tough points. . 2 miles up 3x 2 miles @ threshold (7:55, 7:57) (7:55, 7:55) (7:55, 7:55) 2 miles down
Fall evening run 🏃🏼‍♀️🍃🍂 Always keep moving forward. Did I have the energy? NO. Was I as fast as I used to be in my 30’s? NO. But I press on, keep on, move on, and carry on. Did you know some toxins only come out through sweat? Well, that includes emotional toxins too, I would guess. Fall is a great time for changes. 💪🏻🍂🍃✝️#motivation #inspiration #runnersofinstagram #womensrunning #itsfallyall #fitnessover40
I’ve been running, but when it comes to posting about it I feel like I don’t have anything to say. No motivational quote. No positive body image story. Insert something about how I ran and I’m just an ordinary person trying to keep up with extraordinary expectations.  #amileaday2019 #womensrunningcommunity #womenrunners #womensrunning #motherunner #runnermom #runningmama #run #runner #running
Late afternoon treadmill run during nap time. I usually hate the treadmill but right now I’m not minding it so much. Maybe it’s because I now have the luxury of just walking to the basement to run on it instead of driving to a gym. But anyway this mama can get her miles in is ok by me! 😊 ••• 4 miles 🏃‍♀️ ••• #run #runner #running #runnergirl #runnergirlgang #marathoner #smds #smdsambassador #sarahmariedesignstudio #halfmarathon #sparklysoulheadbands #sparklysoulambassador #nuuntraining #nuunlife #nuunbassador #teamnuun #phillyrunner #hshive #honeystinger #womensrunning #teamwr #womensrunningcommunity #inspiringwomenrunners #motherrunner #bamr #postpartum #runformyson
Day 3. Flawed in that the ferry sailing we wanted was cancelled due to low tide which meant we lost a good 3 hours of running but we persevered. The most beautiful day in the highlands, travelling from north Uist to Tarbet. Well that was the plan. As we ran into the night the terrain got quite frankly hilarious: more dead sheep than alive. They were everywhere. Pitch black and no trail just bogs, thigh high heather, grasses and super slippery rocks. We were managing 2 miles an hour. We drew a line under it at 10pm. We will have to make up 18 miles tomorrow plus the 37 we had planned. Good news is we’re all healthy, strong and focused and we got 30 miles in the bag today. Total mileage for the week now just under 100 miles. Can we make up the remaining 85?

An old picture, of me and the hubs (boyfriend at the time), in front of my favorite coffee shop back where I grew up, grabbing a coffee after a run. Feeling down today, having a tough mental day. And I found this picture. It made me smile.

This morning's run didn't go down so well. My right knee started to hurt and I had stomach issues 💩! Cut 10 miles to 8 and walked the hills to save my knee during my 2 week taper. Hopefully it was just a funk and tomorrow I'll be back to normal.

Another great run today but my gosh was I sore! Luckily my post workout drink was just what I needed! What are your go to’s for battling soreness?
Taking some time to enjoy running for what it is: an opportunity to be outside, use my body, enjoy beautiful Colorado, and spend time with one of my favorite 4-legged friends. 💕  Post marathon/off-season life has been amazing: the temps have cooled, training isn’t a thing, and I’m able to take the time to just savor this sport I love so much.  Someday, and I’m not rushing it, I’ll know what is next. But for now, it’s removing the (internal) expectations & pressure, not looking at the watch, and not worrying about any finishing time obsessions and just being in the moment.  Putting one leg in front of the other, breathing in, breathing out, and being grateful. ❤️ What about you? Do you like off-seasons from running or not? What do you like to do in your off season? Happy running, friends. ✌️ #offseason #postseason #running #runchat #womensrunning #womensrunningcommunity #runningrecovery #mentalhealth #runforit #marathoner #marathonrunner #runnersofinstagram #runnersofinsta #gratitude #fueled #dogsrunning #runningdogs #runningblog #runningmotivation #runninginspiration #runner #wellness #wellnesswednesday
Favorite gym, favorite corner, favorite thing to do.  I was asked to today if I’m struggling returning to running and lifting. I answered honestly too. Yes, yes I am. I’m not where I was before, but I’m not far from where I know I can go. Comparison is the thief of joy and we all easily fall into the trap of comparing ourselves to others or even our former selves. Be kind to yourself and meet yourself where you are at right now.
I’m not sure what was going on these last few days, but I am glad to be on the other side of it, for the most part. Since Sunday I have been feeling weak, lightheaded, and my stomach was just in knots. I’m not sure if it was a short flu thing, food issues, or some other reaction, but it feels good to feel better! . Now, I do suspect that I have a nutritional imbalance. More so, an iron deficiency and I’ll know more about that after getting my blood results back soon, but whatever it ends up showing, I can’t wait to be feeling 💯 %. . Just a few days out from #rocknrolldenver . Speaking of, who’s your favorite Rock band/artist? I really love it all, but #1 is AC/DC! Happy Wednesday friends!
Why should you consider hiring a running coach? -- 🤓 1. Smarter training -- sure, you could find a free, generic running plan on the internet. But it's probably not specific to your goals or your current fitness level. A coach can create a plan for you that is efficient & tailored to you. They'll give you the right paces, workouts, and recovery so that you're not running yourself ragged with unnecessary and inefficient training. And so that you're not being lazy and neglecting hard workouts. 🙌 2. Accountability -- a big reason why I love having a coach even though I'm a coach myself is accountability. If I skip a run, go too fast/too slow, cut something short early, etc., my coach knows! That's motivation. 📚 3. Expertise -- you're an expert in your field and a trained/certified running coach is an expert in theirs. Instead of spending your time researching the science of running, you can trust your coach and spend that time with your family or friends. Or sleeping. 💆‍♀️ 4. Less stress -- you don't have to think about what your plan should be or count how many weeks you have until your race. Your coach will plan for you and all you have to do is look at your calendar and do the work. 🤸‍♀️ 5. Break plateaus, reach your potential -- want to run longer or faster or both? They can help you get there! A coach can help you dream big and work hard with a clear path forward. -- If you've been thinking about hiring a coach (or even if you haven't thought about it until right now), I'd love to chat with you! Shoot me a DM or check out my coaching page via the link in my bio 👋
