I'm really not crazy about running in the dark alone, but when it's still dark at 6 and you have to be at work by 8 you do what you have to do.

So is a work selfie a thing? I took a moment between clients to snap this because today I'm talking about personal training #ontheblog . Not workouts or fitness itself but how fitness professionals like personal trainers, coaches, etc. can use social media marketing to grow their business. Hint: It involves more than just posting a #workselfie (<-- yes! Almost a million! 😁).

Fitness pros! Do you use social media to market your business?

Happy National Puppy Day! And another #throwbackthursday to the very first time we saw Johnny at a Pet Smart rescue event. He caught my eye because he looked so much like a dog we had recently lost. Almost 3 years later he's not a puppy anymore (though he still frequently behaves like one!). He is also the only one of our many dogs that we adopted as a puppy. The rest of them were already adults when we rescued them.

#tbt to that day many years ago (17!) when @lindafavuzzaklein and I ran the @lamarathon in the freezing rain. β˜”οΈ ❄️ It was so cold and wet that our shoes were soaked through before we even started. We kept our throwaways and trash bags on for the whole race! So cold that I had hypothermia when we finished and my soaking sweatshirt must have weighed 5 pounds. .

I'm not quite sure how I did it, when my exercise induced asthma was so bad I actually kept my inhaler in my hand for the second half of the race, but I do know that if it hadn't been for my friend and running partner I would have given up. πŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸƒβ€β™€οΈWe ran 3:33 together that day, one of my proudest accomplishments as a runner.

Seventeen years later, I may not be as fast, but I am happy to still be running. Check out my blog post for things you can do now, while you're young, to achieve longevity as a runner.

My first early morning run since the time change! With @knuckle.lights and @sabresafety pepper spray in hand, I actually finished before sunrise! .

Today I added my first tempo run of this training cycle. It wasn't very long or fast, but it felt good to move my legs a little quicker than usual. .

On the blog today we're talking about how to prepare when you're young to keep running when you're old. What can you do to keep your body healthy and strong so you can keep running and not become one of those former runners who "had" to stop running. .

Periodization, or cycling your training is one of the best ways to stay healthy and uninjured. In other words, don't run all out all the time. Check out the post #ontheblog .

Join @the_suzlyfe, @running_onhappy, @loramarie03, and me and share your running related posts at the linkup!

Taking a cue from @runningonthefly and taking a step challenge! How does she make this look so easy? Stairs are HARD!!!!

Such an amazing sunrise on the first day of spring deserves a salutation! How are you celebrating the spring equinox?

We spent a fun day with the grandchildren (and their parents)! Dang, kids grow so fast!

A 4 mile recovery run brings my weekly mileage to 25! Nice to start seeing results. We were both a bit tired this morning. @alantwoodruff had ridden his bike 3 days in a row and I was on my 4th running day in a row. Now off to visit the grandchildren!

8 miles today! My longest run since...well, since I can't remember when! The last mile was tough, but, since it's all uphill that's to be expected. This gives me more confidence about the #allday20k at the Carlsbad 5000 in a couple weeks! Hey SoCal peeps, will I see you there?

The wildflowers aren't the only things that are popping right now. #nofilter on these gorgeous bougainvillea. I thought I'd go for the match in pink today!

To be honest, I felt like crap this morning. I woke up with a migraine, took my medication, which helped the headache but left me feeling lethargic. So what do you do when you feel like you can barely put one foot in front of the other?

You run faster.

Yep, as I was slogging along this morning, I remembered a tip from my #RRCA coaching class instructor (Randy from @runtucson). We were talking about slowing down during a marathon. You get tired you slow down , right? His suggestion was to speed up! Do a burst of higher speed to help get out of that low point.
.
.
Guess what? It worked! I did several fartlek intervals, just focusing on form and pushing myself a little. And while I certainly didn't set any speed records, I felt and ran much better! #runningtipoftheday
