Today's Strong Finish Athlete Spotlight is on Sara from CA! Sara gets most of her weekday runs in with her little guy in the running stroller. She's got the M2B half marathon this weekend and she's training for her 1st full marathon, San Francisco this July!

My Friday night is just on fire. Getting ready for one of my many #longruns in preparation to #beatberlin42 #strongfinishathlete

Proud of our girl, Beata today for her 2 min 19 sec half marathon PR today at the Brooklyn Half, a tough course!! We've been working together since November and I have seen much improvement in this athlete. She has come a long way from having a torn meniscus and stress fracture training for her 1st marathon to shaving time off ALL of her racing distances. She's added in numerous cross training and strength training efforts and figuring out what works for her nutrition. 2015, she ran her 1st full, NYC, 2016, her 2nd in Chicago and now this September, she'll run her 3rd full in Berlin! Crossing marathons off the Abbott World Majors list and then she'll have Boston, London and Tokyo and she'll have them all! We've got big goals and we are going for it! Congrats on your PR today, Beata!!

#tbt to last March 2016 at @bestdamnrace When I first launched my company in August 2015, I teamed up with @babybootcamporlando owner Kirsten to host a local 10k/half marathon training group. We started promoting in October and the program began in December and we had 11 ladies total. We met every Wednesday evening and Sunday morning and we had beginner and advanced training plans for those who were running their first race or going for a PR. It was a great learning experience for me as a coach. All the ladies in this picture are still running! Good times, good memories and good people! ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖

Hydration is one of the most often neglected aspects of running and working out. When I first started running I NEVER paid attention to hydration before/during/after a run. Some runs I'd be ok and some I'd be sluggish and I didn't know why. The answer was that I was dehydrated. Now I run with a handheld water bottle every time. No matter what method you use, make sure you take in water while exerting yourself. Especially in the warmer months. #bettertogether #runchat #runshots #runselfie #instarunners #runitfast #runnersofinstagram #runnerscommunity #runnersrepost #runnersworld #runorlando #orlandorunners #coachkristenscruggs #strongfinishathlete #strongfinishcoaching #thatfitcouplelife #runlong #runhappy #runallthemiles #runningman #igrunners #igrunner #wearetherunners #runnershoutouts #runnerslife #imagearist #couplegoals #marathonfest #goproshot

Today's Strong Finish Athlete Spotlight is on Leah in Washington state! We are not only working on speed and strength, but working on distance as well. Leah's last half marathon was in 2010, but she's signed up to run one in September, 7 years later where she is going to blow it out of the water!!

I had such a fun long run with Celia today. She is coming back from an injury and it was her first long run in the while and she did great. Somehow we found lots of hills that I didn't plan on 😳11 miles went by so quickly! I love being around sweet and positive people like her. Hopefully we get to have a lot more long runs this summer together. #longrun #marathontraining #goals #goalscrusher #workhard #iwantmore #makeithappen #run #runner #running #runners #runnerslife #runhappy #loverunning #instarunners #instarun # #healthy #exercise #fitmom #fitness #irunthisbody #garmin #brooks #ihavearunnersbody #runallthemiles #healthylifestyle #irunthisbody #garmin #brooks #strongfinishathlete #berlinmarathon

I had every excuse today! It's Friday, I'm tired, didn't feel like doing it. I procrastinated as long as I could and told myself just go for 2 miles, you can do 2 miles. It wasn't as bad as I thought did 3 and I found a lost dog! I returned him to his home safely and finished my run! Now I need to find something to do with my munchkin. #goals #goalscrusher #workhard #iwantmore #makeithappen #run #runner #running #runners #runnerslife #runhappy #loverunning #instarunners #instarun # #healthy #exercise #fitmom #fitness #irunthisbody #garmin #brooks #ihavearunnersbody #runallthemiles #healthylifestyle #irunthisbody #garmin #brooks #strongfinishathlete #berlinmarathon

No run today as it's a "rest day" so I just taught all 6 of my classes and now I'm collapsed on the sofa in a big heap. Roll on weekend with Team USA oooop North!

Cheesin' in the wilds of Lindfield after putting 10 miles in the bank. 6 tough, grouchy, bad attitude, HOT, hilly, annoying men whistling, traffic in my way, carrying my damn water bottle miles, and 4 miles where I felt in the zone and good. I'm going to trust my coach, trust the process, trust my legs, and most importantly trust God. Oh, and be bloody grateful to have the time, ability, motivation, and health to run 10 miles. Ungrateful git. .

On a funny note, I had my long run planned for straight after dropping off my mini at school. I was in my running shorts grabbing my keys when Dais looked at me, fear in her eyes: Mummy! You're not wearing that!! to drop me off! Are you?!?Me: Um yeah dude, it's actually hot out there. Daisel: Oh no, you mustn't. Please put on some trousers, you can't take me into school in your knickers!
Y'all know I threw on some trackies. Out of the mouths of babes, I tell ya. 🤷🏼‍♀️😘💜
