Yesterday’s trail race is no banana. It’s a 15K loop of roots, rocks, and 1234 ft elevation gain. After the 1st loop, I was asked if I wanted to do another. Hmm, not today, thank you. Didn’t eat enough Thanksgiving turkey to power another loop 😃 no medals for me but I did gobble up this banana. #lifeafter50
I'd been joking around about how tired and cranky I'd probably be on the way home from this run but turned out to be completely wrong. While I do feel like the old course needs to still have a place as a PCS event (maybe just retitled now) the new course was perfect for the longer distance options. Could not have asked for better weather and the Altras worked wonderfully leaving me with zero foot issues. Eating like an asshole for the past two weeks gave me plenty of energy and I feel like I'm finally ready to jump to a new running distance. Bring on a 40 miler. #dirtybird50k#pretzelcitysports#trailrunning#ultrarunning#gobigorgohome#altrarunning#50k#finisher#thanksgivingweekend#medalmonday
Over 2 years ago, when I weighed my heaviest, I was depressed and kinda just over it. I used the scale as a way to gauge my happiness. Luckily, I found @fitgirlsguide and learned how to get off the scale, be me, live life, and get healthy. Over a year ago, I finally got up the courage to go to my first group run with @cityfitgirls and learned that it didn't matter what my pace was. As long as I was there and happy, everything was fine!! Thru running I have met some of the best people!! ▪️ I have been struggling lately with motivation and eating habits. I've noticed the scale number climb. But instead of get depressed and throw everything I've learned out the window, I have kept going -- ▪️ today was the day I LAUGHED in my weight's face!! I came in TOP FEMALE in the CLYDESDALE division in #dirtybird15k trail race! The division was for women over 160 and men over 200. Yep, us normal weight people can run too!!! In a time of 2:04:18, (not my best) I crushed my goals of just being me!! ▪️ cityfitgirls #run215#runphl#pretzelcitysports#progressnotperfection#weightisjustanumber#moveoverskinnybitches#trailrunning#fitgirlsguide#fitgirlrunning#fitgirl#run4allwomen
The Ghouls and Fools is no match for Zuber and Wolf! Back at it again, Zuber took fourth overall (2nd in his divison), and I took second in the Clydesdale divison (heavyweight) lol. Six miles of woods, mountains, beautiful sights, and pure hell. All at night!
