Kind of a #throwbackthursday and also a recognition of mine (and I just finally acquired my photos from the @rundisney #expeditioneverest race a few years ago, so it gives me an excuse to post them). Facebook reminded me today that, exactly three years ago, I started running. I posted something similar last year, and the year before, but I figured I'd keep it going.

I started running because I told myself I wasn't a runner; that I could never be a runner. Now, approximately 2,800 miles later - or the distance from Miami to San Diego, with about 150 miles to spare - and 30 races, including a pair of marathons, a bunch of half marathons, and an assortment of other races, I'm still not done. In fact, I have a long ways to go to meet the goals I have set for myself. Sadly, further than where I was last year (but I'm working on it!). There's never an end goal with fitness. You're always trying to do better. Be better. Be healthier and live longer. And despite all of the success I've had in the last three years, I want to keep pushing myself. Thanks to everyone who has supported me these past few years; I hope I've done you proud and continue to do so!

I've been struggling with my runs for the past week, so this is sort of a #motivationmonday post for me. Hopefully with a few months until my next big race, it'll inspire me to keep training and pushing toward that finish line. #runner #running #run #race #exercise #fitness #halfmarathon #halfmarathontraining #marathon #marathontraining #florida #floridarunner #rundisney #orlando #disney #disneyworld #wineanddinehalf #training #starwarshalf #princesshalf #darksidechallenge @rundisney #finishline

Last one from the Hulk Hogan meet and greet yesterday. Guy in line in front of me was getting this world title signed. And this wasn't a cheap replica - this was the real thing. When he offered to let me hold it when I asked about it, there was no way I could say no. It was huge and incredibly heavy, but awesome to hold a legit, real world title. #wrestling #wwf #wwe #worldchampion #hulkhogan #hulkster #clearwater #florida #title #belt @hogansbeachshoporlando @hogansbeachshop

I've been a fan of the Hulkster's for literally more than 30 years. Some of my earliest memories are of my grandfather and I watching Hulk Hogan wrestle on TV. So it was finally cool to be able to meet the guy yesterday and cross that item off my bucket list. #wwe #wwf #wrestling #hulkhogan #hulkster #rocky #thunderlips #clearwater #florida #hogansbeachshop @hulkhogan @hogansbeachshop @hogansbeachshoporlando

Getting ready to see the Hulkster. Lifelong dream. @hogansbeachshoporlando @hogansbeachshop #hulkhogan #hulkster #clearwater #florida

Thrilled to be an uncle.

When you want to play in the mirror but you have to keep an eye on your sister to make sure you're doing it right. #love #daughters #prouddaddy

View of the massive new @theedisonfla complex from the water @disneysprings. One of the places I'm most excited about opening up down there later this year; being there opening night is definitely a goal of mine! #disneyworld #disney #waltdisneyworld #orlando #florida #disneysprings #theedison #thelanding

Another *big* thanks to @thechefartsmith for treating us so we'll @homecominfl @disneysprings this past weekend! Definitely a fun, pre-birthday trip! Thank you, Chef! Homecoming is definitely one of my favorite restaurant at Disney Springs! #food #disney #waltdisneyworld #disneyworld #disneysprings #orlando #florida #friedchicken #hushpuppies

It might feel like 95 degrees outside, but I managed a respectable 3.3 miles on my last day of being 33. Looking forward to my mid 30s...which is something I never thought I'd *ever* say. #birthday #birthdayrun #runner #running # fitness #exercise #training #halfmarathon #halfmarathontraining #floridarunner #florida #itsHot #itsflorida #rundisney #rundisneytraining #wineanddinehalf

Beautiful day today with a Pleasure Island throwback at Dockside Margaritas @disneysprings. The drinks are available all week long, not just on the #throwbackthursday they've been advertising! #disney #disneyworld #orlando #florida #pleasureisland #funmeister #kungaloosh #waltdisneyworld #disneysprings #drinks

Special thanks to @thechefartsmith for making today's visit to @homecominfl @disneysprings awesome! And the food was amazing; for someone who doesn't like jalepenos in his hush puppies, I ate at least six of them today! #disney #disneyworld #disneysprings #orlando #florida #food #southernfood #bbq
