Emmie & Marcus Hiersche  Run, TRI, Happiness & Great Beer πŸƒπŸ» PDX 🌎 OSU Alum Mama to 🐝 09.2017 Team Betty 2017 πŸ’€πŸ’– 1 X Ironman CDA 140.6 πŸŠπŸš΄πŸƒ 2 X 50K 6 X 26.2

Sometimes the hardest part of my day is just walking up the stairs or bending over to put my shoes on πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Today I got in a 2 mile walk and that was the best I could do (especially since we had another 90 degree day)... But I do give myself extra credit because after work I ravaged up enough energy, or craziness 😜, to do a $300 grocery trip (that's the most I've spent in one trip in YEARS... bought everything in the store to get ready for Brewer and just about every single person who passed me in the isles either stared or stopped to comment on how I was going to pop any minute πŸ˜….. Also the first time I've ever taken the grocer up on help to my car πŸ€“ #bigday), followed up by putting everything away and organizing the kitchen, cooking dinner, cleaning the house, then finishing it off with a couple loads of laundry 😴😴😴 Thank goodness I have such an amazing husband who treated me to a frosty afterwards...✌ peace out world, I'm as zonked as it gets. #PregnantLife #36WeeksPregnant #OhBaby #PositiveVibes #NestingIsReal #runninghoppy #homestretch #thirdtrimester #babytime #pregnancy #babyonboard #pregnant #pregnantrunner #36weeks #fitpregnancy #fitbump #fitmom #walk #2miles #getactive #run #runners #running #runlife #happiness #enjoytheride

Today marks one year since I became an #ironman at CdA 😊✊ It was a day I'll never forget because for the 6 years I knew what it was, I never thought I'd be able to finish one! I just kept chipping away one step at a time... First 5k runs, then 10k runs, then marathons (big jump I know, but I met the right people to train with and support me that the timing just worked itself out), then eventually short triathlons (when I met the OSU triathlon club president in my senior year summer physiology class and he invited me to a swim practice... I didn't even know how to swim πŸ˜‚ I had never done a triathlon before that then ended up doing my first sprint just 3 months later). I still haven't even done a 70.3 because eventually I just got so tired of being scared to do Ironman after all those years, I just decided to pull the trigger and go for it!! I also met one of the most inspiring people I've ever met that same year, @trialsoflifeloveandfitness. She gave me the courage I needed to face my fears and lift me UP! So many other support contributors as well (husband especially) ❀ you know who you all are. Truth is, we will never know what we're capable of until we just decide to JUMP!!

Having the dream is just the first part... but you have to be willing to DO something about it to actually make it happen! We all start somewhere!

Do things that make you happy πŸ’™πŸŒŠπŸƒ If you're passionate about it, you'll find a way to make it work πŸ˜™ 2 BEAUTIFUL coastal miles to kick off Sunday runday! Ain't no better way to start the day than with views, sunshine, wind in my hair, my bump, my boo, and running in my home town. Feeling like a champ and it's not even 9am πŸ‘Š #WINNING #CoastalRunning #Home #36WeeksPregnant #RunningFor2 #Motivation #Runspiration #RunHappy #SundayRunday #runninghoppy #babymiles #mamamiles #ohbaby #fitpregnancy #fitmom #fitbump #pregnantrunner #babybump #run #running #runners #runlife #triathlete #teambetty2017 #ironman #ironmom #runhappy #adventure #enjoytheRUN

3 RUN DAYS IN A ROW πŸƒπŸƒπŸƒ I cannot believe we are 9 months in and I'm still going 😊⚑ So thankful for a healthy pregnancy (and baby) and my ability to stay active and continue doing what I love through this journey. It hasn't always been easy... It definitely is a lot of hard work, but the payout is 1000% worth it!

So crazy to think this might be one of the last runs I have with @jwackattack and Boo before Brewer comes πŸ™ˆβ€ It's a mystery πŸ™ˆ Both of us have been so busy with positive things lately, we haven't had as much time together as usual but we're making the MOST of it when we do. Today was kind of a stretch --- 3 days in a row I've got some good run mileage in! I'm definitely starting to feel it lol πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰ Tomorrow will be a rest day haha, but 2 miles today puts me at 8.6 since Monday, which is right where I want to be πŸ‘Š #WINNING #RunFriends #36WeeksPregnant #9Months #RunningFor2 #Motivation #Runspiration #RunHappy #runninghoppy #babymiles #mamamiles #ohbaby #fitpregnancy #fitmom #fitbump #36weeks #pregnant #pregnantrunner #babybump #run #running #runners #runlife #triathlete #teambetty2017 #ironman #ironmom #runhappy #adventure #enjoytheRUN

Your potential is endless when you believe YOU CAN! Don't let life pass you by... stay in the moment, follow your dreams and don't let anyone ever talk you down!!! If you want to do something, make it happen! 10 days till Hood to Coast and 2.5 run miles with this special lady on the PDX waterfront ⚑🌍😊#OwnYourGreatness #ReachForTheStars #35WeeksPregnant #RunningFor2 #Motivation #Runspiration #RunHappy #runninghoppy #runfriends #babymiles #mamamiles #ohbaby #fitpregnancy #fitmom #fitbump #35weeks #pregnant #pregnantrunner #babybump #run #running #runners #runlife #triathlete #teambetty2017 #ironman #ironmom #runhappy #adventure #enjoytheRUN

You don't have to have a cape to feel like wonder woman 🀸✌ β€’β€’β€’
I CAN DO THIS!!! As I prep for Hood to Coast in 11 days (yes, I will be 37 weeks pregnant πŸ˜…) and labor that could happen anytime before or after, I'm focusing on all the positives and keeping my mind & body healthy~ For one, I just ran 4 miles πŸƒπŸ˜„ SO STOKED!!! I've mostly stuck in the 2-3 mile range the past few weeks, so this feels so good to my run soul! Was it easy? No... I'm running with a 24 lb. bowling ball in front of me!! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Am I happy I did it? Heck yes! Every time I'm able to run right now @ 9 months pregnant, it's a HUGE WIN! Especially when the weather is 70s all week and I'm able to run comfortably outside again! So. Much.
