If you run, you are a runner πŸƒβ€β™€οΈ 9 years ago, I set out on my first run/walk around the block to lose weight. I had never ran outside of high school gym class. I was slow. I couldn't go further than a half a block without walking. 90% of the time I felt defeated... But I kept coming back for more. For the first 3 years of my running journey, I was afraid to call myself a runner. I was afraid to sign up for a 5k race because I thought I wasn't a "real runner". Today, I'm a 16x marathon finisher & running through pregnancy. I would have laughed in your face 6 years ago if you told me this would be my life in 2017. My message to everyone: if you run, you are a runner. It doesn't matter how long you've been with it. It doesn't matter if you take walk breaks. It doesn't matter if the furthest you go is .25 miles. What matters is that you run & you have that fire πŸ”₯ within you to keep coming back for more! If you want to be a runner- RUN! It's as simple as that! We all started somewhere πŸ™ŒπŸ»

Same side braid, still rocking the @spibelt but ditched the tunes and the tights. The girl in the flyknits never would have considered a marathon but she teared up that morning running through the streets of San Francisco in disbelief that she could take a goal, add a plan and work her tail off for a chance at success. My goal that morning was a 1:45 but getting so close kept me working. What a ride.

The Great Alaskan Running Cruise continues! A nice easy run for Greg and me along the water with beautiful mountain views. My favorite running weather: overcast and low 50's! #runalaska #runningvacation

It's gorgeous out today!! Got a little run in-hamstring felt ok-not great. But that's ok because I moved up my PRP injection and I'm getting it on Thursday now. So I basically have two more days of an active life before not using my legs for 2-3 weeks. I'm trying not to get too bummed about it even though I love working out. I'll survive. And it's all for #boston2018!! I know when I stand on that start line all these struggles will be worth it. I'm off to PT. Have a great day!!

Where to begin. This training cycle for me has been anything but impressive. Who's fault? Mine. It's hard to remember to enjoy the process while pounding the pavement with expectations you've only placed on yourself. I get so caught up in where I "should be", where that girl on Instagram "is", and the worst; "but last year I was...". Today is all that matters. And today I gave it all I had. My splits were solid and right on. I can tell you is that this process should be exhilarating, motivating, draining, freaking hard, and yet the best damn part of your life because you are giving the most energy and time to it. If it's not, change. You don't HAVE to do anything. You can do whatever it is in your heart you want to do. Don't let the journey of others take away from your HERE. And your NOW. I've got good things up my sleeves. I'm taking the reigns. And I can't freaking wait. πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ’—πŸƒπŸΌβ€β™€οΈ

#TransformationTuesday Marathon 1 (2006) vs Marathon 12 (2017)! I think the smile on my face alone speaks volumes to how my relationship with running and marathoning has changed over time. .
.
After marathon 1, I hated it so much I swore off running for about 4 years. That's right! I was OUT. I'd only been running a year and a half when I tackled Marathon 1. .
.
But since back surgery in 2011 I rekindled my love of running and the next 11 marathons have happened since November 2012. .
.
My biggest piece of advice for those tackling their first run or Marathon: live in the mile you are in!!!! Celebrate every damn step... oh and stop for a pic or two! ;)

First day of kindergarten ~vibes~ but tbh less cool than my light up, velcro sneaks πŸ‘Ÿ 🌻#BrooksRunning #WalkHappy ➑️ #RunHappy

I'm not a fan of trail running, but this run changed my mind. The rainforest was amazingly beautiful and I enjoyed the challenge of the crazy hills. We really lucked out with the weather: upper 50s and hardly any rain! #runalaska #runningcruise #trailrun

EXTENDED! 😱
cleanses are still buy one get one!! πŸ’šβœ¨
i stocked up.. what about YOU?! πŸ€”

I was not looking forward to this run this morning. I slept terribly and didn't feel that great. Plus, speedwork is my least favorite workout of the week. 😝
But, I forced myself to the track and gave it my all. This Yasso 800 workout definitely scared me, but after the first rep, I was spot on with my splits.
2.22 miles up
6x800, 400 recovery (splits: 3:36, 3:30, 3:25, 3:26, 3:21, 3:20)
2.6 miles down

My goal time for each split was 3:30, and I hit it or did better 5/6 reps! πŸ’ͺπŸ‘Š 9.3 miles, 1:18:23, 8:25/mile
