Forever and always, my baby you'll be โค๏ธ

The face when you're just ready to be done ๐Ÿ˜ฌToday was about competing, and I wanted to go for the win bc I'm just too dang competitive. Well, turns out trying to keep up with @seechelsearun wasn't the best idea because girlfriend had an awesome race and I ran a great first mile with her in 5:50 then it just got ugly for me ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ #ByeFelicia ๐Ÿ‘‹๐ŸผI ended up third female. My first Bardog in the books though! Fun race and very well organized by @breakawayrunning . Super proud of my runners too who all did great in tough conditions! 85 degrees at 9 am in the sun ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜ฉ Gah 5ks hurt so bad and I'm over this distance ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜ฉ

Backyard or rainforest? ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ Okay so real talk. Every few months I love to take 10 days to really focus on putting quality food into my body, and shredding a few habits that don't serve me, so I can feel my best.
Y'all, the caffeine addiction in my life is real and I need to reeeign it in ๐Ÿ˜‚Some call these 10 days the #Shred10 ๐Ÿ’ฅI'm doing my next one in a few weeks!

This is not about weight loss, fasting or any other extremes (Although some do lose weight!). My personal success story is I actually ran my fastest half marathon and snagged a new all time 1 mile personal record while doing the shred 10 this year ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ Anyone else have a cool Shred10 experience?
Okay, who wants to join me?
Give yourself the gift of 10 days to reset your habits and jumpstart your way to better health. Simple, healthy steps that we really should be doing anyway! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Focused nutrition + accountability + 10 days = NEW YOU! #Shred10 #eatcleangetlean #fuelyourbodywell ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŽ๐Ÿฅ™๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘Ÿ๐Ÿ’ฅ

Can you hear her laugh? โ˜บ๏ธโค๏ธ

10 miles in the bank ๐Ÿค‘๐Ÿค‘Having fun building fitness, and grateful to be feeling lots better than I was a month ago when I was dealing with some weird viral-like symptoms we still don't know exactly what it was. I don't think I'm completely out of the woods, but it's improved dramatically. Some things I've focused on in case any of you aren't feeling 100% either. I'm sleeping lots, taking double JP (yes, I eat TONS of fruits and veggies already if you've seen my insta stories, but sorry, no one eats 15-19 servings every single day...which is what's recommended for athletes who are breaking down their bodies and more susceptible to injury/illness/etc, so I supplement with this rather than a multivitamin bc our bodies absorb FOOD better than isolated vitamins๐Ÿคž๐Ÿผ), and I've also added in a food based b12 in the form of spirulina and chlorella since I'm mostly eating plant based. I'm feeling GREAT heading into week 3 of marathon training! Thanks to @breakawayrunning for the supported long run, as always!

Just dropping in to post this grainy photo we took a few min ago ๐Ÿ˜Š Jon and I are both training for our first full marathons (his is next month & mine is in December!). Hanger levels are high, fresh granola is in the oven, and it will prob be consumed in its entirety within 24 hours (it's just sooo good๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜†), and a family run is on deck later this evening. #TodaysAGoodDay

I doubted we'd even make it 6 months bc I didn't think breastfeeding would be my thing, but here we are, still, somehow. This has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life, and one I don't take for granted bc I know it's not possible for everyone. I exclusively pumped for the first 8 months bc she completely refused the breast and I was working full time, then one day out of the blue she latched and we haven't looked back. It's definitely been an interesting journey. Not sure how much longer we will go, so I'll soak this time up. โค๏ธ #nationalbreastfeedingweek #normalizebreastfeeding #18months

Boo took me out tonight and we celebrated the end of an adventure and the beginning of a new one. He is good to me โค๏ธ#PharmacySchoolHereWeCome !

She is such a daredevil with boundless energy I sometimes have a hard time knowing how to help her channel. But this week I've seen another side of her. Calm, gentle, kind. Curls up with me and wants to tell me all the things. She'll bring me a book and pretend she's reading, but can't say sentences yet so it comes out as: "Mama dada potty apple dnskxndkdkxndjskwalaanxbxkss" ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ #TheBest

Sure, there are those rare occasions when a race feels effortless, but more times than not, you have to really dig deep into the pain cave to run your best. Honestly it comes down to how much discomfort are you willing to endure? Sounds a bit dramatic, but it's true. And pretty synonymous with life ๐Ÿ˜ฌPacing one of my dear friends and athletes to a huge PR in the 5k today looked like this. I am SO proud of you, @mommiesrun . Favorite quote of the day was when she looked at me at mile 2 and said: "Katie, I can't do this." I then thought for a second : "I wonder if I'm pushing her too hard? ๐Ÿ˜ณ." Then I responded , "I mean are you going to die?" ๐Ÿคฃ she gasped "No." so we continued on ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ

Happy 3 year anniversary, @j_taylor0 ! I find it hilarious we wrote out our "5 year plan" shortly after this day and then absolutely none of it came to fruition ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ Year 3 has been a year full of many tests for us, and the year I think we both had that pivotal moment when we realized "Oh, gosh, this isn't the person I thought I married ๐Ÿคฃ." #RealTalk #SurpriseImNotPerfect ๐Ÿ˜‚ If you're married, what year was that for you? The beauty of it all is that we have this amazing gift of grace, and we know that the testing of our faith produces endurance, so we lean into that. Here's to the amazing times and the trying times. Love you so much, babe. #HappyAnniversary

If you constantly feel like you're fighting an uphill battle, unable to reach your potential, or struggling to get faster, this post is for you. Stop with the negative and complacent thoughts โœ‹๐ŸผFor real! If you think you're a slow or middle of the pack runner, you'll always be one. This works for everything. If you say , "I'm fat" or even think you are, then you'll stay that way. Am I an elite runner? Not on paper, but in my head I totally am! And I'm working toward the on paper part ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿคž๐ŸผIf you say things like, "I'm always injured, I'm just not good at racing a 5k, I cant be a morning runner," then that's what you'll be. Whatever it is you say or think, that's going to be your reality. End of story. I used to think this type of hokey stuff was totally ridiculous. Until it wasn't. "You are beautifully and wonderfully made." Start changing the way you think of yourself and things will start changing. Watch it happen and then come and share your story with me when it does ๐Ÿค—โค๏ธ
