Was going through a box of old running stuff and found my gear bag for @bostonmarathon 2011 folded up in the box. I'd say I'm a weirdo for keeping a gear bag BUT that race meant SO SO much to me - seeing the bag brought back the feelings. I qualified for Boston 2011 by running a BQ 6 months after Miles was born. I took my marathon time from a 3:59 to a 3:36 {BQ's were slower then} πŸ’™β­οΈπŸ’™ This bag reminds me of a lot of sleepless nights with a newborn and mornings where I made zero excuses and would get up and run anyways pushing both Miles and Chloe in my double running stroller. They say the years are short and the days are long when you have kids. Running had helped me appreciate those long days and all too quick years πŸ’š now to get back some of that speed so I can go to Boston again! Is there anything kinda weird that you have saved from races!? ⭐️

#tbt Army Ten Miler 2007: Photo description - a baby with a baby, pregnant with another baby. It's amusing/sad to me to look back at pictures where I was soooo worried everyone would know I was pregnant....because I looked soooo huge. Hahaha. I know it's a pregnant thing to feel huge when you are NOT in fact huge but sheesh...there's a thing or two I'd like to talk to my younger self about. 😝😜 also how is this little peanut going to be 11!? #timerunson #irunthisbody #loveyourbody #ihavearunnersbody

Want to get crafty with your race bibs? Grab a canvas {I buy mine at @michaelsstores} and some Mod Podge!! I laid out the bibs before I painted over them with the MP. That way I could decide on a placement I liked before making it permanent. I trimmed the sides once everything was dry. I also like to do a couple of coats of the MP to give it a textured painting look. I paint it on in half circle brush strokes so it looks πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ up close ⭐️ Tell me - what do you do with your bibs? When I first started running I threw them away 😩 still annoyed at myself for that haha. #irunthisbody #run

Up up up ⭐️ My usual out and back 10K has 220 feet of gain - most of which is in the first 3 miles. It isn't a crazy gain but it's enough to make me feel completely out of shape every single time. But for every step up I am rewarded with a step down. The downhill makes me feel fast and fit even on the slowest of days. πŸ’š .....a couple of months ago I was REALLY ready to move on from marathons, from blogging, from social media....I'm realizing though that I was just I climbing a hill....a hill where sh*t felt WAYYY harder than I wanted it to....but life was just testing me and preparing me to fly on the downhill ❀️ don't give up when the going gets tough - tough may be exactly where you need to be in order to FLY down the road. Xoxoxo #irunthisbody

Medals motivate me πŸ’™ #irunthisbody #runhappy

πŸ’š You know those runs? The runs that remind you why you fell in love with running in the first place? The runs that make you feel alive? The ones where all negative thoughts and worries cease to exist? The runs where your body moves through the air and for a brief moment, maybe a mile or maybe just in fact a single moment, you feel weightless physically and emotionally? The runs where you find yourself singing out loud and then laughing out loud because you know how silly you may appear to a passerby but you really don't care because you are so happy in that moment that it doesn't matter that you possibly look like a crazy person running - cause you are ALIVE - and being alive feels pretty dang good....πŸ’š yeah those runs are my favorite...... #irunthisbody

Added my Boston bibs to my wall πŸ’™πŸ’› love looking at these when I do basement workouts! All of these remind me where I've been and where I want to go in both running and life ❀️ #irunthisbody
