Anyone else have those days where you're just going through the motions and not quite sure what your purpose is? Story of my life today. •



I feel like the older I get the more I look at people/situations/relationships and ask myself "why?" WHY am I friends with this person? Why is that person doing something that doesn't make them happy? Why can I not stop eating ice cream?! •



I feel like over time everything will work itself out. It always does. Some days I wonder why people leave shopping carts in the middle of the parking lot. But I know eventually all the shopping carts find their way back inside. Balance, I guess. •



Point is...whatever "why" you're struggling with right this second....know that the "ohhh, I get it" is coming. Know that soon-maybe not tomorrow...maybe not the day after...but soon- you'll take a step back in life and see that every small detail...every roadblock, every question you've had about a situation will all add up to a wonderful, fantastic result that will leave you grinning from ear to ear--with plenty of eye wrinkles. And here's a secret, friends. It's closer than you think (I'm not there yet--but this journey of life sure is fun). The universe is your biggest fan. •

Jumping with excitement because I kicked this runs ass!! Because of work and my sleep schedule getting messed up I wasn't able to get 16 miles in last week so I was nervous about doing 18 today (I know, excuses, excuses). My body felt good during the 18 (2 mile warm up included) and I just went with it! •


Training for marathon #2 and sticking to a training plan from a coach who is awesome is SO MUCH different than training for my first marathon. During THAT training the longest run I did prior to racing was maybe 13 miles once...because I kept skipping the long runs. The marathon sucked, OBVIOUSLY! This time, I'm following workouts, getting in the long runs and speed workouts and it's paying off! My goal seems attainable! •


I may not be the fastest runner but I'm out there grinding away like everyone else. Thankful for a healthy body and legs that aren't TOO sore! If you'd like to donate towards my $1250 fundraising with MDA for the Marine Corps Marathon, the link is in my bio! Have a great Saturday, friends! •

This time last year I hiked all the way to the top of Mount Washington. It was 40 degrees with 50 MPH winds and ZERO visibility. Talk about disappointment. TODAY, however, I sat in a car and made the 8 mile drive to the summit and it was BEAUTIFUL. 55 degrees, sunny, low winds and 100 miles of visibility. It's amazing how HUGE those beautiful mountains are and how small we really are. •



Eight (much needed) days off from work started today! 18 mile run scheduled for tomorrow and I'm ready to CRUSH IT. Happy weekend, friends!

Oakland, you are beautiful. Thankful for time spent with the trees, marveling at their beauty . 🌲🌿🍃 📷: @c_lynne01

Back to the skies and I've got lurkers following me around. Why is my scarf a hot mess? 💁🏼✈️💙 📷: @jamesbrown4

Retro jet livery, America sunglasses and still not knowing what to do with my hands. Ah, I've missed flying so much!!! 😍💙🛩

When you hear someone talking about food......



Was supposed to run a 4.47 mile road race this morning buuuuut stayed in bed instead 🤷🏼‍♀️. Moving yesterday and two long days of work really kicked my butt BUT I still got my run in---and ran the fastest I've run this marathon training! It's really amazing when you see the plan working. @mamabear_runs_marathons you are a genius! •


No tacos today but I'm going to stuff my face with some burger and fries. Happy Fourth of July to all of y'all! Have a wonderful day!

Happy Father's Day, daddy! Thanks for being the best dad out there ❤️❤️

10 hot, sweaty miles this morning. This run is dedicated to the people may not be the fastest (🙋🏼), but they are still out there grinding along towards their goals 💪🏻. Long runs are getting easier, despite the God awful humidity!

27 years + 1 day old. Thank you for all the birthday wishes via text, Facebook and Snapchat. Every single one was appreciated. 9,856 days on this Earth and I'm still not totally sure what I'm doing...but that's ok! I know one thing is for sure and it's that I'm thankful every day I have here. •


I'm thankful for a mind that has taught me to think before I speak and to never judge anyone, because we never know what someone is going through. I'm thankful for a body that has run a marathon (training for #2), half marathons, 5ks and hiked mountains I only dreamed about. I'm thankful for a spirit that is young at heart and allows me to laugh at myself. I'm thankful for a family that handpicked me 27 years ago and continues to show me how loved I am. I'm thankful for friends who make me giggle and go on amazing adventures around the world with me. I'm thankful that I'm healthy. I'm thankful for all the people that I love deeply-which is pretty much everyone. My heart is happiest when I'm helping others. I'm thankful for a job that has sent me to breathtaking places. •


Even on the days where I'm tired, sore, emotionally and physically exhausted I'm able to keep pushing forward. I've got air in my lungs and that's awesome stuff. For those of you who are young and wishing you were older...the journey is sometimes even better than the destination. To those of you who sometimes wish you were younger (me included!)...be thankful for the knowledge you've gained over the years..and share that with those around you.



Most importantly, I want to say thank you to the reader of this post. You have impacted my life in SOME way and for that I am eternally grateful. Don't forget-love always wins. ❤️

I'm truly thankful for each and every day I get to spend on this beautiful Earth...and for not having a desk job. 🌴🌎🌞

First day of pre-marathon training! This was my first workout in three weeks and one day...and I went out in the Florida heat at 4 pm and busted out 4 miles 😂. This wasn't easy; my body hurt so bad. I was supposed to do 5-6 miles but the heat got the best of me today. That's okay; tomorrow is a new day! // I'm so excited--I'm training for the Marine Corps Marathon and I'm going to be working with Coach Kristen! She knows her stuff...and I'm pumped for someone to hold me accountable and kick my ass!
