Community. Connection. It’s why most of us say we love social media, yet we quickly scroll and tap without getting to know each other.
I want to get to know you!!! I want new folks to get to know me and I think you’ll find others you connect with here too!!
Day 1 let’s kick it off with a super easy one: where do you currently live??
See someone who lives near you, check them out! You might find your new running buddy (it’s how I did it!!!)
I live in Denver now! And if you share more on your feed, use #teamrttf and I’ll come say hi!!
Op 10 februari zijn onze Nederlandse topatleten te bewonderen in Gent. In de indoorhal zullen o.a. Schippers, Sedney, Hovenkamp en Pluim in actie komen.📸: @sangarciacorre

It was a #runcommute Wednesday. Run numero uno: 6.8k in 37:45. Pretty happy with this; it was cold and windy and I was wearing many layers (probably more than I needed, but I was having an ‘I just don’t want to be cold’ days). Thought about taking transit back (it was cold, I’ve already ran a fair bit this week, I’d worked much of the day...), but...I dunno, I knew I could do it, even if it’s not necessarily the best thing for my training. I’m not good at doing things in halves- particularly when it comes to a) feelings, b) running, and c) feelings about running. There is no ambiguity. Thus, my debating hoping on a streetcar vs. the foot train lasted about 20 seconds. Run numero dos: 6.9k in 39 minutes. Glad that I didn’t slow down substantially.
I may choose to scale down my typical long run tomorrow, just because I want to have enough energy to go to the gym for a bit!

That time @willscitylife really didn’t want to run hills. The rest of us were pretty excited about it. 🤗
It's only Wednesday but I've already trekked almost 40 miles this week. I'm loving my @yaktraxtraction ❤️🏃🏽♀️❤️

Poem number 17 (One of my favorites): When You Are Old
By: William Butler Yeats "When you are old and grey and full of sleep,
And nodding by the fire, take down this book,
And slowly read, and dream of the soft look
Your eyes had once, and of their shadows deep;
How many loved your moments of glad grace,
And loved your beauty with love false or true,
But one man loved the pilgrim Soul in you,
And loved the sorrows of your changing face;
And bending down beside the glowing bars,
Murmur, a little sadly, how Love fled
And paced upon the mountains overhead
And hid his face amid a crowd of stars."
9.3 miles on foot
Poem number 16:
By: Edgar Allan Poe "Oh! that my young life were a lasting dream!
My spirit not awakening, till the beam
Of an Eternity should bring the morrow.
Yes! tho’ that long dream were of hopeless sorrow,
’Twere better than the cold reality
Of waking life, to him whose heart must be,
And hath been still, upon the lovely earth,
A chaos of deep passion, from his birth.
But should it be—that dream eternally
Continuing—as dreams have been to me
In my young boyhood—should it thus be given,
’Twere folly still to hope for higher Heaven.
For I have revell’d when the sun was bright
I’ the summer sky, in dreams of living light,
And loveliness,—have left my very heart
In climes of mine imagining, apart
From mine own home, with beings that have been
Of mine own thought—what more could I have seen?
’Twas once—and only once—and the wild hour
From my remembrance shall not pass—some power
Or spell had bound me—’twas the chilly wind
Came o’er me in the night, and left behind
Its image on my spirit—or the moon
Shone on my slumbers in her lofty noon
Too coldly—or the stars—howe’er it was
That dream was as that night-wind—let it pass.
I have been happy, tho’ [but] in a dream.
I have been happy—and I love the theme:
Dreams! in their vivid colouring of life
As in that fleeting, shadowy, misty strife
Of semblance with reality which brings
To the delirious eye, more lovely things
Of Paradise and Love—and all our own!
Than young Hope in his sunniest hour hath known.
This poem is in the public domain."
↠ And every day,
the world will drag you
by the hand, yelling,
“This is important!
and this is important!
you need to worry about this!
and this! and this!”
↠ And each day,
it’s up to you
to yank your hand back,
put it on your ❥ heart
and say “No, this is important.” 🙏🏼🏃🏽♀️

Sometimes i just love an uneventful run where nothing of note happens. It may make for a boring IG caption, but it's good for the psyche. #seenonmyrun#irunoutside

Stick to the streets today, no sidewalks. Too icy 🏃 #nikeplus Ran 3.24 miles with Nike Run Club
Tonight, as I nearly rolled my ankle a thousand times in the sloppiness that covers our roads, I tried to imagine I was on a beach in SoCal and that the two pounds of slush weighing down my shoes was perfect, white sand 🏝The snowblowers humming were just motorboats jumping waves 🌊, and the drivers blinding me with their high-beams were the sun’s rays shining on my windburned, errr perfectly tanned face ☀️ I mean, a girl can dream right!? 🤷🏽♀️ At least it took my mind off winter for a few miles! Hey @sstephhayy - we may need to come visit you sooner than August! 🤣
And the story begins! Qu!

Dat kan, stuur dan even een mailtje naar [email protected] * Op de foto’s zie je een heren maat M, natuurlijk voor de gelegenheid ook even gedragen door Marsha xxx
Saai kan altijd nog! Binnenkort meer.

Passion is when you put more energy into something than is required to do it.. It is more than just enthusiasm or excitement.. Passion is ambition that is materialized into action to put as much heart, mind, body and soul into something as is humanly possible.. And running is my passion and therapy✌️

Good evening all, hope you had a good day!
I had a wonderfull liss during lunchbreak... my head didn’t want to go but I did my liss and I enjoyed it. And I had so mutch energy afterwards!!!! Whats your less favorite and at the same time most favorite bodypart?
Is this even possible?
I must I think it is... I have it with my feet... I don’t know why but I realy have a love/hate relation with them. Hate because they don’t look pretty but love love love because those 2 have never let me down! They support me every day, they bring me where I want to be, they let me jump, run,... even when I overdo them, when I give them broken nails, blue nails, no nail, blisters,... they keep being there for me 😉
So thank you feet for everything
