Team bonding on this beautiful Sunday✨Not only are we medical professionals, but we also are professional golfers...ok, the second one isn’t true🙃Happy Sunday, Funday Beyond Beauties💙
I am a marathoner!!!! I am sore and tired and waiting for the hunger to set in, but I have now run my longest distance and my first marathon! I don't want to run another anytime soon, but in a couple months I know I can seriously get my time down with more training. Hope everyone who raced had a great time!
#catfacts : contrary to popular belief, the cat is a social animal. a pet cat can respond and answer to speech, be trained in complex tasks, and enjoys human companionship (how they are treated when they are kittens can greatly direct their personality for the rest of their lives) #adventurecat
When you're hungry, undecided about what to eat, and catch a sniff of @cjs_bbq smoker going.
I had no specific goal in mind going into the @venturamarathon half marathon besides testing current fitness for my upcoming marathon. Simply show up and see what my body can do. — this has been my approach lately. 🤷🏻♀️ I started off the year struggling and feeling intimidated by racing which was something new for me. As the half was quickly approaching I caught myself saying “there is no way I am in PR shape. No way I’ll run below a 1:23.” At the end of the day I am human and I have to constantly fight negative thinking. . . I am proud of effort today...Despite all the barriers I faced this morning...bus arriving less than 10 minutes before the start time, long bathroom lines (still waiting in line when the race started), no warm up miles, and starting behind the 2:00 pacer. I am proud of myself for staying strong and controlled. I rarely glanced at my watch and focused on on passing the 1:50, 1:40 and 1:30 group (It almost became a game.. how many pacing groups can I pass?! This reminded so much of Ragnar)☺️ It was difficult to predict time considering I started a bit late...but darn had I known I was 12 seconds from a PR I would have stepped it up. 🤷🏻♀️HA! There is always a next time! . 19 miles total (6:58 avg.) for the day—I was able to run some cool down miles with a few IG friends 😍|61.5 mile week | 6 weeks until CIM & more work to do. Congratulations to everyone who raced this weekend! 🎉 . . . #laceup#ventura#halfmarathon#roadtocim#runningcommunity#sundayrunday
