A beautiful run this evening, humidity was down and sun was covered by the clouds. Felt really strong on this run, not by my speed but my mental game. Head and Heart were in synch today, which was a recipe for a great run. Gotta maintain and ride it further into my weekend of long running. 🙏🏾
8km #run tonight. Sometimes it is about getting out and not giving up. Tonight was one of those runs. Happy I did it!
#ntrc I was thinking of you guys as I ran past this :) I was hoping to get out for a crew run next week but my schedule may not allow :( see you in YVR instead for the #eastside10k ?
BE PATIENT- BUT NEVER LET DISAPPOINTMENT ROB YOU OF THE OPPORTUNITY TO DREAM BIG! ☺️
These were my last three marathons and ones that I worked super hard for - but left me extremely disappointed. (My times ranged from 10-19 minutes off my marathon PR.) It takes so much out of you to keep having bad races. Taking a breather was literally the best thing I could do for my running. It was so healing physically and emotionally for me. My psyche and confidence were completely beat up by those huge disappointments one right after the other. I was just so broken and hopelessly discouraged. Such a poor way to have to view your running.
I'm really grateful looking back at these tough races and knowing I'm finally out of the woods. I'm a totally different runner - physically & mentally- after having recovered from those races and rebuilding my body. I'm grateful going into this next marathon cycle that I was wise and patient enough to give my body the time it needed off so that I could come back stronger & faster. Sometimes the hardest thing you can do is take a step back and regroup but it can be the most important and necessary thing. It's easy after a disappointment to want to do all of the things possible to get better and faster when sometimes the best thing to do is rest & wait.
I'm excited to train for CIM and with God's grace and help, I trust I will blow these races out of water and get that long awaited redemption race. I know it will all be worth it.
6 slow recovery miles- legs are feeling more normal and I'm hoping they feel fast on Sunday!! 🤞🏽

The women I love and admire for their strength and grace did not get that way because shit worked out. They got that way because shit went wrong and they handled it. They handled it a thousand different ways on a thousand different days, but they handled it. Those women are my superheroes. – Elizabeth Gilbert
I'm sure we have all become victim to this at some point... You know, the "I'll do it later" or "I'll do it tomorrow" phrases. Sign up for that marathon TODAY. Decide to lose weight TODAY. Sometimes, we don't get a "later" or "tomorrow" 🏃

Rest day! Two uneventful, easy miles for runstreak day 574. 1 year, 6 months, and 27 days. Where the hell has that time gone? It's flown by and I've apparently loved being lost in the miles. 🖤✌🏼 #nevernotrunning#nevernothungry 🌮🍕
