i oto nieprawdopodobne staje się rzeczywistością. nie, nie napisałam wreszcie książki, to znaczy też ale współ. o Szoście Henryku współnapisałam i mam nadzieję, że się sprzedaje, ku chwale rekordzisty oraz rekordu. nie chodzi też o nowy felieton, chociaż to również i poniekąd pośrednio o to. bo oto ja, która się poddała dziesiątki razy i dziesiątki razy podniosła, po walce z pooperacyjną niemocą ciała (o tym jest felieton na @bieganie.pl a link, wiadomo, w bio) będę PRAWIE trenerem biegowym dziś a kto wie co dalej, bo jak mi się spodoba... na razie jaram się jak szczerbaty na suchary, że ja, nie mająca z poważnym bieganiem nic wspólnego (bo umówmy się, że moje bieganie to takie amatorskie śmiechy chichy) będę prowadzić dużą część poważnego treningu a mianowicie dłuższy bieg w II zakresie. będziemy kręcić 2 x 9 kółek po stadionie, od wczoraj obliczam jakie jest tempo okrążenia skoro km ma być w 5’40 i to jest matematyka wyższa, prawie macierze ale ogarnę to, zamiotę stadion i założę nawet nowe legginsy. w każdym razie KAPITAN Marta (!!!) zaprasza na @warsawrunclub na Agrykolę o 18:30. przyjdźcie, przeoramy trochę tartanu. a potem o tym napiszę. #biegaczka#running#runninggirl#bieganie#run#runningwoman#runningwriter#instagirl#polishgirl#warsawgirl#joy#motywacja#inspiracja#nevergiveup#polskadziewczyna#runfree#runhappy#instarunner#blueeyes#instarunners#biegającaliteratka#radość#szczęście#pasja#passion#beatyesterday

I had my first run with headphones in ages today after running without music for 8 months. It’s hard to describe how it felt. But it felt awesome! My energy kind of doubled, motivation too. It was easy, funny and enjoyable!! I have definitely missed running with music. However, as you probably know, running without music is enjoyable and beneficial in other ways. You can listen to your body, to the sounds of nature and it’s safer too... So I am a little bit confused now 😬 What do You think - running WITH or WITHOUT music?
TBT to 11/16/14 @ The Bucky Challenge: a half and a full marathon on Sat and Sun, along the scenic Delaware Canal Tow Path in Bucks County, PA. Five years ago the thought of me having to run 39.3 miles over a single weekend was really intimidating. I kept having to remind myself why I registered and that I was hungry for new challenges. So I trained hard and took 3rd overall with my family waiting for me at the finish line. The week after, I ran my 2nd @phillymarathon and then my first #rocky50k two weeks later. And that's when everything changed for me - when I ran my first ultra! From then on I was off to the races... quite literally 🖤 Moral of the story: Challenge yourself and see where it leads... #rungagzrun#myfanclub
“As runners, we tend to think in exchanges and zero sum games: If I finish this race, I get a medal. If I run 10 miles today, I’ll have earned this burger. I have to hit these splits, otherwise, I failed. But sometimes, the things we get out of a run are far more abstract than a piece of tin to wear around our neck or a set of numbers on a stopwatch. A run can take us to places and people we would otherwise never have the opportunity to encounter”. - Susan Lacke 📸: @_brittrunstheworld_ ... Looking for high quality running gear?

Easing back in!🏃🏻♀️6 miles for me today. It got cold!🥶Summer come back!😂I thought I was going to get all this stuff that I’d been neglecting during marathon training done over the 8 days I took off, but nope! I ended up just eating a bunch of crap and melting into the couch most nights after work and staying there.🙈It really feels good to start being active again! #runbaltimore#runlikeagirl#goals
“Often times, I feel like I have the weight of the world on my shoulders. Dark thoughts and angry feelings. I drag myself out for a run. I do this despite the exhaustion of a long work day because inside I know, I need this run more than anything. I start running and instantly, the world stops. All I hear is the light pounding of the snow covered pavement amidst the quiet streets, with just my thoughts and the sound of my breathing. As time progresses, my negative thoughts seem to wash away and it’s like a jolt of renewal and hope. I run as fast as I want, with not a soul to tell me what to do. Going fast or slow and picking any direction I choose. It’s a certain freedom I cannot explain. This is really a part of my day I cannot live without. When I finish my run. Everything is different. I see things more clearly and in perspective, and that things aren’t as bad as I make them out to be. Running gives me the strength and motivation to battle the internal conflicts that plague me. Truly suffering is the only way to achieve this, and running is the only sport that can do that for me.” -Runners Revolution 📸: @elien_janssen 🏃🏻♀️ ....

Perfection💖 • I didn’t ride Jura today, because I had been with a friend all day🌸 • I really hope that I can get some video of dressage soon😩 But my mom and I can’t really match the things we do with filming😕
Fall 2019, the season of second bests! Some people would be disappointed with that, but I’m honestly more proud of this season than I am of last fall (which holds all of my PRs). The physical and mental struggles I had to deal with earlier this season tested me to the max. Through all of it though, there was a positive. It led me to grow a greater appreciation for running. That I’m lucky to be fortunate and healthy enough to do one of my favorite things. And I fully realized that on Saturday. Even though my legs were hurting (they were probably like WTF lady you told us we were running a half), I was happy during the whole race. And that’s the biggest takeaway from this season, not the numbers. ☺️ • Fall 2019 🏃🏼♀️ 2nd best 5K (22:46) ✅ 2nd best 13.1 (1:46:03) ✅ 2nd best 26.2 (3:55:13) ✅
With flowing tail and flying mane, Wide nostrils never stretched by pain, Mouth bloodless to bit or rein, And feet that iron never shod, And flanks unscar'd by spur or rod, A thousand horses - the wild - the free - Like waves that follow o'er the sea, Came thickly thundering on. — Lord Byron
“The wind lifted me up into the trees where I danced to the rhythm of the evergreen, swaying to the tune of the Northern breeze, frozen in timeless melody” -Christy Ann Martine . . . // Last snowy run with my Maggie pie, who was very wary of the cold white stuff at first, but once able to RUN, went wild and ran free 🥰
"The greatest pleasure in life is doing what people say you cannot do." . or rather, doing what YOU say you cannot do. for the first 22 years of my life, I told myself that I couldn’t run or be a runner or even be athletic. I tried to train for a 5k before, but I always ended up giving up and flunking out of the Couch to 5k program multiple times. but one day, the summer after my college graduation, something just clicked. I downloaded Couch to 5k again and decided to give it one last shot. It took me an extra month, but in August 2016 I finally finished my first “official” 5k (with some walk breaks) in 33 minutes. . since that first 5k, I’ve gone on to cut over 12 minutes off my 5k PR, finish a couple marathons, qualify for the Boston Marathon, finish (and win!) my first ultramarathon, and finish my first 100 mile footrace in under 24 hours. that girl on the left would never believe you if you told her that she was capable of doing those things. she was convinced that she could never do anything even remotely close to that. hell, she couldn’t even run a mile without stopping. . I’m not gifted or talented at running. I’m nowhere near as fast as hundreds and thousands of other runners, and I probably will never be. but I’m sure as hell FAR more capable than I once thought I was, and I’m a hell of a lot physically and mentally stronger than I used to be. and that’s a big fucking accomplishment. . (also, I want to make a point to say that while I did lose ~70 lbs along the way, these accomplishments did NOT necessarily come from just losing some weight. fat people can and DO run 5k’s, marathons, and ultramarathons. you CAN be fat and be a runner, 110%. weight loss does NOT have be your goal & it is not a measure of your success, your ability, or your worth.)
