I had a fun race today, and a marathon PB. Looking back, the early part of my training cycle was rough. I was sick several times, which was traced to a protein deficiency. As a result, I learned a lot about proper nutrition this time around. I'm grateful I was able to participate today and continue to improve. Thank you to @calundrigan and everyone else who supported me! #rnrraleigh#rocknrollraleigh
It's a good mail day! I received these @racedots from @notesfromjack! I've been wanting to try them SO bad because I hate putting holes in my clothes for race bibs. Plus, do you see those pirates?! I'm forever a "pirate girl looking for booty." I also received some #MedalMonday from @runrocknroll! I earned the Double Beat medal for completing two RNR half marathons- Raleigh on 4/2 and Nashville on 4/29.
Two years ago today, I started running. Everything about my life has changed in that short time and I couldn't be happier with where I am and where running has taken me. In the last year I ran 1,301 miles. I'm looking forward to adding more miles in more new places over the next year.
New RnR age division plaque from #RnRRaleigh came in the mail today. It's smaller than the #RnRVB one?? Anyway. Happy to add to the collection as it will be a loooooong while before I can start hammering some races down. 😉🤰🏼 It was a great reminder that I am capable of fast, strong times. Slowing down, watching my belly grow and seeing all my hard work unwind is kinda hard. I won't lie. 🤷🏼♀️I worked my tushy off for the past two years to qualify for Boston, place in the larger @runrocknroll races and tone up. But, I'm gaining something even greater: a new LIFE TO LOVE. I chat with her on my runs, tell her to be a strong human, kind and good. 💖 I say 'she'...Hoping my gut instinct is right. 😉 2018....I'm coming for you full throttle!! There's nothing stronger than a passionate mother runner. ❤️❤️❤️ . . . #race#run#motherrunner#bold#slowisthenewfast#pregnantrunner
