Running and ultrarunning is a fairly solitary sport. you spend miles upon miles alone out in the wilderness. for the most part it’s just you, your thoughts, and maybe some wild animals out there. it can be monotonous and lonely at times. but... oddly enough it has also brought the best people into my life. all those miles alone out in the woods led me to not feeling so lonely after all. as much as i enjoy my own company, finding other people with the same passion for life and running as you is invaluable. running has given me the best things in my life.
i am so thankful we “ran” into each other. here’s to many more miles, and smiles. ☺️
Resting up tonight. 😴 its a six hour journey to maryland tomorrow! 🚗 then expo, dinner, && sleep! cant believe im running my fifth marathon on sunday!! so crazy && surreal! 😁 i am definitely nervous going into it but i know i have to trust myself && my training. 🏃🏻♀️💜 ive totally got this! 💪🏻
Friday’s run was suppose to be a 3 mile tempo run but it ended up being a 3 mile progression run. i had to work for it probably because i wasn’t as hydrated as i should have been but felt good to push it. get uncomfortable (still working on that)! side note; it feels great to run injury free. 😁🏃🏼♀️happy freakin weekend✌🏻

Orangetheory never fails to give that "hurt so good" soreness the day after....that my legs felt very heavy during my medium-long run today. so, i intended on running 12 miles, but i had to stop at 10 due to some sharp shooting pain around foot and knee. of course, both my arms and shoulders also being sore didn't help my posture and running at all. truthfully... i initially didn't even want to run... but i pushed myself. i thought...if i don't do it today, how will i get stroner? 🤷🏻♀️i may not have clocked in 12 miles today, but i'm so happy i just went out to run. see...running always puts a smile on my face! 🤗 #justkeeprunning#nopainnogain#justdoit#alwaysrunning#runnergirl#runnersproblems#running#runchat#beatyesterday#strongereveryday#alwayssmiling
