#NowIRunThisCity

MOST RECENT

Exactly 1 year ago, I set off to give the “5k thing” a try. There was never the “aha” moment of “I’m going to be a runner!” I just wanted to try a new thing that I figured I might be able to do. Little did I know it would turn me into a better version of myself...
_____________________________________
It’s my runnerversary (is that the word? 👀help me out here 🤣) One year later, two half marathons later, countless lessons later, and after meeting many amazing people...I wouldn’t trade running for the world!

13.1 x 2. @charlottemarathon I love me some you! 💜👑😍 Beautiful day for a PR 💁🏽‍♀️.

Huge thank you to @jackieraebae for being at the finish line to cheer me on (the bestest!). And special thank you to @val_dee for sending me @racejoy messages the whole race 😭. And also thanks to @ali_anchors for keeping me humble for the first 4 miles (I was ready to book it 🤣). & also thank you to the @charlottemarathon crew and Ambassadors for being super encouraging and inspirational. You guys are amazing! 💜 Final shoutout goes to @shaedawg0620 for running his first FULL marathon. 1) I would like to be like you when I grow up 🙌🏽. 2) college kids: take note. Glow ups do come true. #WeDidThat 🤣🤣🤣🤣.

Have you ever chased a goal that you didn’t think you were capable of, and dared to fail? I guess you don’t know what you are capable of until you try....
______________________________________

Earlier this year (maybe January-ish?) I texted one of my best friends (@drewskiidrake ) and told him I wanted to run a half marathon. I felt super silly saying it because I had only run a few 5ks at that point. But here we are.....I just finished my first Half Marathon ✅. _____________________________________

I can’t even begin to lie to y’all and say I did it alone. To ALLLLLLL of my friends who have sent me encouraging messages throughout my training- thank you! Y’all kept me focused in my moments of doubt.
______________________________________

Also, a HUGE THANK YOU to @ali_anchors for running miles 11-13.1 with me AFTER she ran the 5 mile race! Lord knows I wanted to quit around 10.5. I was sooooo happy to see her 😩🙌🏽. She literally went through the finish line, turned back around, and came back to get me. 💗 #BetterTogether

“When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.” For instance: I rolled my ankle Thursday and of course, I was planning to run the Novant Health 15k today 🤦🏽‍♀️. Not the most ideal situation weeks into half marathon training 😩. However, I want to give a HUGE shoutout to @ali_anchors for offering to WALK the Novant Health 5K with me! Had an amazing time power walking && catching up ☺️

A little transformation for your Tuesday. Sometimes we get so caught up about the goals we haven’t achieved yet and we forget to celebrate the progress we HAVE made. I’m super guilty of this. 🤦🏽‍♀️🙋🏽‍♀️ Your progress IS worth celebrating, no matter how big or small! Happy Tuesday. 💕✅👑
