4.5 miles today...in the rain. 7:40 pace. Today was one of those days I wanted to stay home and snuggle on the couch with my kids. BUT, today is also a day I needed to get out because I felt that way! There is plenty of time for snuggles after running.
I'm constantly amazed at how what we do with, and to, our bodies affects our souls. For me, often the best thing I can do for my soul is to move my body!!
“If it doesn’t challenge you, it won’t change you.”
Let’s talk about the GYM.
I love it. Yes it said it.
The gym has completelyyyyy changed my running.
Check out my blog post (🔗 in bio) to read some goods and bads about the gym! . -
Like, how you have sooo many muscles in the human body. You can alwayyys work on something.
And hello it HELPS make you a stronger runner!
Or, how awful it is to look up from a machine and see a guy doing only 3 reps on a chest machine. I mean I’d rather see a wide open trail and soak up some vitamin D.
How about you?
What do you LOVE about the gym?
What do you HATE about the gym??

After a rest day yesterday, I was hoping today I’d feel much more energized and ready to run. Wrong! I knew that if I was going to get my run in today, I needed to listen to my body and take it VERY easy - which I did. The miles dragged out and my hips were tight the entire time, but I got it done. Kicked off week 18 👶🏼 with 4 miles @ 10:23 pace. It hurt, it wasn’t fun but I finished and didn’t stop once - I’d call that a win. Here’s to hoping my next run will be a better one, because giving up isn’t an option. 💚

5 months ago the adventure #tokyomarathon2018 started.
Now it’s less than 36 hours to go until the most exciting part of this adventure starts.
A fun little throwback to my first ever marathon in 2016. I attempted a full back in 2015, but had major knee problems that got in the way after an ACL reconstructive knee surgery. In 2016 I was able to finally climb that mountain ⛰ and fulfill one of my biggest dreams! After that race I felt HORRIBLE though. The worst stomach cramps ever and nausea for 2 weeks straight. After feeling so crappy for several weeks I decided to test and see if maybe I was pregnant... the tests came back positive and I quickly realized why I had felt so sick! 🙈 That little baby growing in my belly was/still is such a huge miracle. She survived a 26.2 mile race, but not only that - I was able to get pregnant naturally without needing surgeries and treatments like I did with my first. ♥️ It’s taken me a lot of time to build up courage to run a full again, but soon I’ll share some news! 😁👌🏼 I’m so blessed that that little baby in my tummy survived and that she is here and is a light in my life today. *side fun fact* I was sponsored by Alaska airlines to run that race. They made that day extra memorable for me! ✈️ #miraclesdohappen#miraclebaby#marathonbaby#marathoner#26point2#slcmarathon
