Whenever I travel, I'm quickly reminded of how flat Columbus is... 5 hilly and windy miles (8:46 min/mi avg) to kick off another 60* February day in Ohio πŸ™ŒπŸΌ @bendactive

44 miles this week = lots of sweaty clothes. Waiting for the laundry to dry so I can pack my overnight bag... and fill it with running gear πŸ’Ό #truth #weekend

Totally raw, unflexed, not posing, and unflattering... This is awkward πŸ˜³πŸ™„ On Monday I'll be beginning my first round of Whole30. My doctors have recommended I try an elimination diet for years to pinpoint which foods trigger flare-ups, but I've had hesitations. I'm nervous to try it in the midst of marathon training, but I've done my research and will stop if I begin to experience any negative side effects. I hope to figure out which foods my body dislikes and toning up for bathing suit season will be an added bonus πŸ˜‰ I'd love to hear your best tips and favorite recipes! #whole30day0 #whole30

Sitting on the couch in my pjs at 7AM on a Friday, sipping coffee, watching the news, and daydreaming about a few of my favorite things πŸ’­πŸ’™ Only 63 more days until summer break!!! {regram from @irunthisbody} #TGIF #FriYAY #Friday #qotd #teacherlife #teachersfollowteachers #motherhood #weekend

4 miles followed by abs, which turned into more of a wannabe nap 🌚 One more night of parent-teacher conferences and just over 4 hours until I'm kicking off a 4-day weekend!

Looking forward to a date tonight with this hunk to celebrate 6 months of adventure, laughter, and love πŸ’‹ #tbt #happiness #love

Running short on time, but making the most of what I've got! Hustled home, threw up my hair, and squeezed in 4 miles before driving around town to drop off E with a friend while I'm at parent-teacher conferences πŸ’© Looking forward to settling in later and digging into Valentine's Day chocolates... The darker, the better! #teacherlife #motherhood #teachersfollowteachers

Valentine's Day with this sweetheart included frosted sugar cookies, a hugs + kisses bean bag toss, and crafting heart shaped caterpillars ❀️ #ValentinesDay #myforevervalentine #loveher #motherhood

We had a great time exploring, running, and slipping around the muddy trails at Highbanks over the weekend πŸ’• We could hardly keep up with our curious, trail loving toddler!

"You have this one life... Be brave. Believe in yourself. Discover the things that make you happy. Surround yourself with the people who make you happy. Do what feels right. Take risks. Make yourself proud." πŸ¦‹ This weekend I did just that... I did the things I love with the people I love and my heart is full. Now, I just need to make it thorough a tough 4-day week to get to a 4-day weekend!

15 miles of consistency πŸ‘ŠπŸΌ 10 weeks from today I'll be toeing the start line in Toledo... And hopefully it'll be less windy than this morning.

On the couch with a bowl of banana peanut butter oatmeal + coffee and watching "Fixer Upper" before heading out for a long run β˜•οΈ I love having a later start time, so I'm not rushing out the door in the dark! #SundayFunday #SundayRunday
