Today has been UGH. So of course my workout was UGH. Goal was 7:17 pace for mile repeats {which I changed cause I was being a wimp and was scared of 10 min repeats} 2 mile warm up then 6:38, 6:31, and then 6:29 avg for .5 of a mile. My stomach hurt and I thought I was barely running sub 8 so I said eff it {and quit} and then looked at my paces and literally πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ Thankfully my @garmin Forerunner 235 arrived today so I will now know what pace every repeat is during the workout....hopefully helping me get out of my own head....cause apparently now that my pace is improving I don't know what paces feel like anymore. Also it's a thousand degrees out and the humidity is poop and if I'm honest I don't even give a you-know-what about whether I ran well or didn't because my πŸ’™ is hurting today after spending way too much time researching and learning about war monuments in my town and who put them there and why. Caring about my workout kinda feels selfish when the world is hurting....#runningthoughts #cantodayendpleaseandthankyou #irunthisbody #ihavearunnersbody

My #bostonmarathon πŸ’›πŸ’™ magnet looked a little lonely on my car and since magnets have feelings πŸ˜‰ I HAD to add the 26.2 πŸ˜† are you a magnet or sticker person or do you just say βœ‹πŸΌπŸš« to putting junk on your car?! #irunthisbody #jeeplyfe #runrocknroll #rnrvb #instarunners #run

Celebrating 10,000 years - 7 days early but what's 7 days when your have been married 10,000 years?! πŸ˜‰ #thisis10 p.s. Outtakes are always better. The power went out at the bar. That happened. I haven't drank since Chicago. Oh man wine tastes good. Heeeeyaaaa. @4realsbeals didn't enjoy my 10,000 joke - it's actually 10 YEARS - that's a lot right!?! #marriedlyfe #roseismyjam #818 #holycow10years #beal #wineme #irunthisbody #thatsalongtime

I had allllll these things I was gonna say in this caption but they legit would have made me sound like a rambling fool so I'll save them for a blog post {cause less of you read over there πŸ™ˆπŸ˜œ} 9 miles this morning that included 10 x 1:30 at a fast for me pace...The run killed me & made me feel bada$$ at the same time. HARD strength workout tonight after Chloe's soccer practice ⚽️ First picture I had no idea what I was in for {it was a new-to-me strength workout} and I was all smiles crushing on my @saucony tank 😍 second pic I've just dropped the F bomb about 10 times because stability ball planks are straight from hell....like as if a plank wasn't hard enough then you have the added pressure of making sure you don't actually roll off the stability ball so you tighten your abs like none other and say a little prayer that you survive πŸ˜‚ At the end of these strength workouts when I'm done killing myself a little - the endorphins start to kick in and I look at my growing muscles and they make me feel STRONG and feeling strong makes me feel capable of doing anything I want in life....and doing what I want in life makes me happy ❀️ but yeah pretty sure @paceofme {my coach} is either trying to kill me or get me in the best shape of my life 😊 #endorphinhigh #irunthisbody #girlswholift #runyourworld #ihavearunnersbody #whstrong

#tbt to the marathon I ran because P. Diddy {AKA Puff Daddy} was faster than me 😜 This picture is from Philadelphia Marathon 2003, my 2nd marathon. A month earlier I ran #marinecorpsmarathon - my first marathon in 4:20 minutes. My B. goal at that race was to finish. My A. goal was to beat @oprah 's time cause isn't that what everyone strives for at MCM!? πŸ˜‰ After MCM I was bit hardcore with the running bug so I went and spectated #nycmarathon 🍎 It was an absolutely amazing race to watch and made me fall in love with the running community as a whole. While spectating I happened to see P. Diddy run past with his MTV camera crew and his personal trainer who was helping him roll out his legs in the MIDDLE OF THE DAMN COURSE/ROAD πŸ™„ He needed water so they handed him a plastic water bottle. He took a swig and then literally tossed it over his head behind him without looking 😑 It was so inconsiderate and rude....when I later learned he ran a 4:14:54 😱 I was like THAT'S IT - I have to run another marathon NOW and beat his time....cause when you are 21 these are the types of things you care about. So I signed up for Philly and ran a 4:14:49 --- I promise you I have never mentally pushed harder in a finish chute than I did that day 🀣 and thank goodness cause 5 seconds man....I was cutting it close 😝🀣 and duuuuude those printed split shorts πŸ™ˆ WHAT WAS I THINKING!? #irunthisbody #ihavearunnersbody #runphilly
