Having two babies in 14 months took a toll on me physically and emotionally. Don't get my wrong, I was beyond blessed to have two healthy babies and get to witness all their milestones. But going from working full time and training 6 days a week, to staying home with a toddler and a newborn, I could feel the old Christina start to slip away.

It was with my incredible husband's support and encouragement that I started running consistently again. It had been 3 years since my last marathon so I felt as if I was completely starting over, plus I lacked the time and energy I had pre-kids. Needless to say, I had greatly lowered my expectations heading into this new season of my life.
.
At first, it seemed impossible and I would never get back to my pre-baby running and body.  I wish I could say I was one of those awesome double stroller mamas out there killing it, but TBH, it was a damn struggle.  My schedule revolved around everyone but me, squeezing in workouts on my hubby's lunch break, while the babies napped, or if I could get them to cooperate in kids care at the gym.  But I kept at it, I was determined to prove to myself I can still do this.
.
So it was to my surprise when I PR'ed that first post baby marathon by almost 40 minutes!!! I never knew I was capable of this and it unleashed something in me. I was a mom on a mission.
.
PR after PR I felt unstoppable. But I was over training, practically starving myself and becoming so completely obsessed that I began to lose myself in the process. I ended up burnt out, hurt, with my new ambitious goals slipping away.
.
But I'm actually grateful for my big ole slice of humble pie. It really put things in perceptive for me. It forced me to re-evaluate my training and I became not just a stronger, healthier athlete, but a much better coach. It helped me find a much better balance with my fitness, work and of course family. And most of all, it made me see the wonderful opportunity I had to share this journey with my boys.
.
PR's may be harder to come by these days, but that just makes them all the more special, especially when these two are there. And PR or not, no one is ever more excited.

fucking intervalos! pero los vencí #garmin #intervalos #imarunner #healthylife

#RunHappy
Correr es mi momento feliz porque es cuando vuelo sin tener alas. Vuelo en cuerpo (porque en cada zancada se vuela unos centímetros) y en mente, porque es mi momento de meditación. Porque es el tiempo conmigo, donde suelo agradecer 🙏🏼 por lo que soy, por lo que tengo, por lo que recibo y a veces, es mi forma de catarsis, donde como terapia, busco endorfinas en cada kilómetro que recorro.
Es mi momento feliz porque es cuando he conocido las mejores personas, excelentes amigos, y sobre todo porque es cuando me supero a mi misma y donde siempre, a pesar del cansancio extremo que tenga, sonrio si me encuentro una cámara 🙈😜📸#ColombiaRunHappy @brookscolombia #BrooksColombia #soycorredora #Brooks #corrermehaenseñado #imarunner #brooksrunning #runninggirlscolombia #instarun #instarunner #running #runninggirl #irunlikeagirltrytokeepup #runlikeagirl

10 easy morning miles -- and it's all down hill until Saturday!! Eek, I'm getting that 'excited/nervous' feeling for my 1/2 marathon!! Got to run the first 5 miles this morning with my husband, which was great company! Then finished the last 5 solo and listened to a great @rambling_runner podcast with @nebraskarunner -- and can I just say that it totally made my day!! I still have like 20 minutes on the podcast to go and I seriously wanted to keep running this morning just so I could finish it!!😀 I had a HUGE smile on my face my entire run listening! Thanks for the good stuff guys!!
I can't believe it's already Wednesday!! Make it a good one guys!!

Totes forgot to record the miles on the treadmill this morning. So 3ish miles haha. Also I’m trying to win a “fitness” bet with a friend, so I signed up for the #tightertogether program to help with the progress/win in the next few weeks. 😝 🏃🏻‍♀️ ------

Trying to get it all in meant a 2,000 yard swim 🏊🏼‍♀️ and a 5 mile rainy run commute home this morning 🌧🏃🏻‍♀️ Wednesdays are kinda packed around here: I still have an hour on the bike to look forward to in the evening 🚴🏻‍♀️ But I’m kinda stoked about being off to a productive start 🙌🏼🌟 Happy hump day, #fitfam!!! 🐪 #riseandgrind #morningrun #runcommute

I’d call this rain “refreshing” but it really started to come down as I was on the back loop of my out and back. 💚💚 Wore my Launch again today. I don’t usually wear the same pair 2 days in a row. Getting really wild here. 💛💛I saw 3 swans this morning, but I didn’t want to stop or get my phone out, so just imagine them sitting there in the Mystic. Helpful, I know. 😂😂 #imarunner #iloverunning #hillsforbreakfast #garmin #brooksrunning #tracksmithrunning #allthebrands #greensmoothie #stuffilike

3 miles on the tread. Did some speed work - 10k in 5 days 😁 #riseandrun #motherrunner #momswhorun #5amclub #10ktraining #imarunner

Run an “easy” 3, she said. Just a warm up she said...... I feel great. I do speed work tomorrow to start practicing for my new marathon training plan. I’m excited to push myself and get faster.
Happy Wednesday!

Nöter på med intervaller. Åter igen 4x4min i sub 4-fart. Fick slita för att hålla farten i lömsk vind som blåste mot mest hela tiden 🤔 Märkligt.. 😬💀

Running releases more than just sweat 🤪

Dessa blåsiga backar var betydligt lättare än förmiddagspasset med kidsen. Tre timmar lek på noll sömn. Det tar 😅 #motherrunner

Just doing some reading while working overnights this week. #imarunner 🏃‍♀️ #illbeawesomeoneday #ilovefitness #overnightssuck

Det var inte mycket folk på hotellets gym iallafall. Nu efter 60min träning ska det bli gott med frulle. 🥐😋
Ha en bra dag på er!

No gymshark.... 😆 but in the early morning I’m all alone in the gym 🔝😍 Enjoy your day! 💖

First outside run of the year for me. I backed off on pace to make sure my breathing was in check. Feeling good!! Next half marathon is in June. Time to knuckle down and focus!

Saw the weather in advance and used my lunch break to pack the car and layer running shorts and tops under my work clothes #thankgoodnessforac so when I was done ✅ I scooped Maddie up from school and we went running 4 miles :) and then after we had dinner at home, mommy got in some #aaaworkout at the gym! Busy day! 😋 #justrun #runlindsayrun #momintolivingfit #runningischeaperthantherapy #irunforcoffee #irunforfood #highonlife #liveloverun #fitnessfreak #fitlife #ilovetorun #runnershigh #runningismytherapy #girlswhorun #momswhorun #fitnessaddict #gymmuch #girlswhoworkout #momswhoworkout #irun #imarunner

By far the hardest workout, mostly because I came in with a bad attitude!! I didn't feel like running, and my mind was set on quitting. Glad I didn't though, because as bad as it feels, not finishing always feels worse😌
