It's so easy to get caught up by someone running by you. Or seeing someone run a faster time. But always remember it's about the runner inside you. That's your competition.

It's so easy to listen to those thoughts telling you you've gone far enough. But if you give into them you'll regret it... In that instant when you choose instead to keep going, you smash all chance of regret. So just keep going. You won't regret it 😉

I remember back in 2002 when things between my parents seemed to be the worst they had ever been. I hated going home. I loved getting out of the house, away from my Mom’s phone convos about how terrible of a person my Father was. I loved getting away from a space that I desperately wanted my father to be in. I think back to my fondest moments as a teenager and college student and they were all related to sports. For years I have felt this way; sports have always been an outlet for me. A means of expression that stretched far greater than any playbook could. For me, sports served as an outlet that provided the kind of power that I desperately yearned to possess.
In my adult years I would have battles with depression. I was always an athlete, but those days were long behind me. I had no idea who I was, where I was going, and the slightest clue as to navigate these nuance feelings of life. I found running. I found Knox Robinson. I found Black Roses NYC. I rediscovered my purpose. I don’t attend every session, and I am certainly not one of the fastest members in the squad. My career has pulled me in directions that i have never imagined. But when I think back to what keeps me going, what moves me deeper than inspiration, and into a space of purpose and peace, it comes back to Black Roses NYC.
Knox’s journey is one that I personally identify with because it’s layered like mine. You can’t just say he’s a runner or a coach because his impact on both the concepts coaching and running are ever evolving. You can’t simply say he’s a writer because his passion for communication/dialogue spans deeper than 25cents a word pieces in the New York Times. He is a boyfriend and a father. He is a Black Man. He is a leader and a learner. He is both the founder and the founded. He is flawed and simultaneously profound.
I don’t often say much in practicebecause Im always in my own thoughts. I deal with a lot on a day to day. But today, I just wanted to express how thankful I am for your presence in my life. I’m a better person because I became a runner. I’m a better runner because of Black Roses NYC.
Yours Truly. Truly indeed.

Merci @cydplaygrounds pour cette découverte... faire des pompes la tête en bas... Quelle idée 😏
Yesterday’s Run! As we sit here looking at the ice storm coming down in Houston, it’s hard to imagine that just yesterday it was 60s and sunny, warm enough for me to run in shorts and short sleeves smh! 😔
TOGETHER // “We definitely had tough days and we were like: no I can't walk, but more importantly we were able to share the excitement about being there. We stopped and Olivia got into a swing set because there was a swing set half way up a hard mountain! Why not get on a swing set?! I think it’s just that mentality was kind of really nice to have because I think if it was just one of us we would have felt a lot of pressure to think differently about what we were doing. You know, everyone trains differently and when you’re prepping for a 100-mile race which Olivia is doing or prepping for a multi-day project which is what I am doing you can’t afford to take yourself or anything else too seriously or you won't be able to get yourself through it mentally.” — @faithevebee on running with @iareolivia during our 10-day @blackrosesnyc Training Camp down in Mexico.
Sat down with two of my incredible teammates and talked about the highs and the lows, the friendship, the ultra running, the mental toughness — link in bio. #rosestrainingcamp

⭐️ TRANSFORMATION TUESDAY ⭐️
We know Rome wasn’t built in a day, and nor is a strong body. It takes time, dedication and persistence. I don’t usually do these transformation-type posts but I felt it was a good time to
On the left was me this morning & on the right was me in September 2017 when I’d finally got my ass in the gym after a whole year of being injured and depressed. I was 10st, size 12, couldn’t fit in ANY of my clothes and was miserable with the way I looked, miserable at the fact I couldn’t get past the 1mile threshold, let alone 3miles. I had absolutely no upper body strength & lacked motivation to run or exercise
i joined two gyms. One at home, one at work and started to put in the effort. But I didn’t do it alone. Thanks to my amazing father, who, at 60, puts me to shame, and also my good friend @shahussain who has pushed me to my limits each session. Both believed in my strength & potential and convinced me to believe in myself
I’m now 2 stone lighter, toned, can do three unassisted pull ups, five proper press ups, can swim front crawl (thanks @yasminebenafia), eating healthily (minus the mini eggs I had last night) and can see some amazing results & definition in my body. And despite my poor mental health being an obstacle at the best of times, exercise & keeping myself fit & healthy has proved to be a lifeline for me. There’s nothing else that makes me feel this good. I’d just like to thank everyone who has been with me throughout this journey, I couldn’t have done it without you. It takes a village, you know
So, if you ever feel like your goal is unattainable, just think about the steps it takes to get there and create a roadmap. It doesn’t happen overnight. You must be patient & have courage. You can do it. Grab a friend (cheerleader) and lace up. Make it happen. Get those goals.

“I wanted to show that women could run, but I also wanted to kind of inspire the idea that ordinary people can run. I was like, boy, I feel so good when I run, if everybody could feel like this, this sense of joy and physical well-being and strength and autonomy you have when you run, how much better the world would be, you know?” -Bobbi Gibb, first woman to run the Boston Marathon #letskeepmoving#runningculture
