I just realized I never posted my finish line photo and time for the #silodistrictmarathon !! Not a PR for me, but I hit my sub 2 hour goal. Not bad considering how hot it was! . . . . .. #xxfitness #runnerscommunity #rungirlrun #runnersofinstagram #womenrunning #womenthatlift #womensrunningcommunity #gorunit #halfmarathon #finishline #sub2half #runner #running #runnergirl #fitlife #texas #runhappy #cardiomakesmyheartsing #womenthatrun #runningmotivation
Just another reason why I’m forever thankful for @chipgaines and the fabulous crew @magnolia because they personally shipped me an item from the #silodistrictmarathon that I needed help with once I returned home. The sweetest package 📦 I’ve received and honestly I needed a lil treat today. 💛 Counting the days until we’re back for next years run, it’s more than a race, it’s an experience.🏃🏼‍♀️#silodistrictmarathon #bravelikegabe #magnoliamarket #tiuteam #tiubikiniseries #tiubikiniseries2018 #tiumom #tiurunner #tiucommunity #100bysummer #grateful #thebestisyettocome @mahnoosh2018
Some of you may recall that, on a morning in March as my uncle was being laid to rest in Ohio, I had to work in NYC. As I got on the train at Grand Central I heard the most beautiful trumpet version of my favorite hymn, It Is Well With My Soul. It moved me to tears. The rest of that story is that after I finished work that day I went back to my hotel room and ordered a custom sign from @jimmydon522 at JDH Iron Designs. The sign arrived today. It’s PERFECT and will always be a beautiful reminder of life, gratitude, and love from my uncle Raymond. ❤️ We had the pleasure of meeting Jimmy Don a few weeks ago in Waco! Thank you, sir, and Happy Birthday! #jdhirondesigns #churchhymns #lessonsaboutlife #fixerupper #waco #magnoliamarket #silodistrictmarathon
After running the #SiloDistrictMarathon , we (of course) had to walk around @Magnolia Market. While looking at the wall decor, I noticed the awesome picture ledges they used for display. . Well, once we got home I asked @doddblog if he could help me make one... and of course he obliged. . Therefore, just as many other pieces in my home are, this beautiful DIY photo ledge is #AllBecauseofChipandJo 🔨 . We had been searching for something to hang on this shiplap wall since January and I think this display is perfect! Plus, it makes it easy to change our decor each season. . I get so excited every time I see it. ❤️
A couple of weeks ago I ran my first ever HALF MARATHON 🎉 This race was a challenge for me in so many beautiful ways, and today on the #blog I’m recapping our whole race weekend, plus sharing a bit of my story and why this run has become such a defining moment in my life. Thank you @magnolia , @chipgaines and @gigrunewald for this challenge and for opening my eyes to running again - to say that I am grateful doesn’t even begin to cover it ❤️ link in profile!! #withlovefromtexas #blog #blogger #austin #texas #silodistrictmarathon #silodistricthalfmarathon #running #waco #texas #magnolia #pcos #dreams #youcandoallthings #youweremadeforthis #challenge #halfmarathon
Life has been crazy these past ✌🏻 weeks since #silodistrictmarathon . Choosing to show grace to a slower pace. There are all kinds of seasons in life. I’m spending time now on refocusing goals and loving myself along this journey. #instarunners #texasrunner #womensrunningcommunity #runnergirl #runhappy #running #runnerscommunity #halfmarathontraining #halfmarathon #nevergiveup #altrarunning #brooks #runtexas #runrestrepeat #runfree #runwild #runforlife #runnersworld #happyhealthy #fitness #runnershoutouts #runforlife #westtexas #sanangelo #roadlizards
Because everyone loves a #mancrushmonday • We crossed the finish line of the first #silodistrictmarathon half marathon 2 weeks ago. This is our 5th half marathon together and we finished holding hands. • So thankful to have someone to support me and help me get through the tough time. Not everyone is lucky to be married to their best friend. • #spreadlove
Sorry I've been MIA the past 2 weeks. Life has been crazy busy since the Silo District Marathon! Last weekend I ran the Run Like A Mother 5K for Mother's Day and managed to place 3rd in my age group. I didn't even know I placed either! My legs felt so heavy the whole time and I finished slower than usual. They apparently weren't ready to run a week after the Marathon. 😅 I found out later that day after the results were posted online and was pleasantly surprised! Since the 5K, the only other day I've ran was last Wednesday. Wanted to give my legs some much needed rest, so I spent most of last week at the gym doing some strengthening training and used the elliptical/stairmaster as my cardio. Going to ease back into running this week. Will probably be spending some quality time with the treadmill. This Texas heat is already killing me and it's not even that hot yet! 😯🔥🌡☀️ (Swipe left for pictures from my trip to Waco) #runnergirl #runnerslife #runningcommunity #runnersofinstagram #runcation #runner #running #runtolive #instarunner #runningislife #silodistrictmarathon #runlikeamother #runlikeamother5k #26point2 #3point1 #wacotx #friscotx
Suiting up for some miles ahead. My last 5 weeks were pretty crazy with racing and overall endurance event HYPE. . April 8, Cap 10k April 16, Boston Marathon April 28-29, MS150 May 11-12, Ragnar Cape Cod . In the span of those few weeks I did also say No to a couple things. I didn’t race the Silo District marathon or half in Waco, even with tons of prize money and a college hometown course dangling in front of me (such self control 😇 very restraint 🐕). . I didn’t ride the Real Ale Ride in Blanco, which I did last year in a bunch of rain and hail and really wanted to check out again on a good day. . And I didn’t race the Daisy 5k in Austin yesterday, even though some people asked me to be on their team—although there was that alleycat bike race in the 5 p.m. heat after running almost 15 miles in the morning 🤭 People were drinking beers and getting off their bikes to do craft projects though, so it wasn’t too serious 😆 . These spring races were definitely fun, but I feel the call to calm down and quit packing my weekends with so many adventures. I’m only signed up for a couple low-key trail races over the next few months, with my next big race being CIM in December. . I want to find out how good I can be at the marathon when I’m really going for it, not just running one to see what happens or see what I can do on minimal training. . I can’t wait to get to work. . @nlfreeman88 this is probably the last one I’m going to post 🙃
Four 5ks in four weeks 💀 I loved every single one of them and enjoyed the time running with friends, family, and one on my own! It was fun to push myself and see what I’m capable of but at the end of the day it comes down to discipline and determination, two things I’ve always needed to work on. I’m so thankful that God pushed my legs to keep going at times when I wanted them to stop. So now, I think it’s time to start training for my next half marathon🏅#skyline5k #silodistrictmarathon #5kontherunway #wickedwinerun #5k #runforrestrun #thirteenpointone
Finally got my second rod up so I could hang my Dopey medals, along with my new #silodistrictmarathon medal!! 😍😍😍 Painting done by @lynaenae ❤️
#fbf to when my #BFF ran the #silodistrictmarathon !! Such a great weekend with our fellas and @mandylw2 and @sha.ylen ! I’m so proud of you @ja.bridges !! Finishing a marathon takes so much physical and mental strength, and you are so very strong. I had no doubt that you could do it! I’ll spare you the video of my screeching through tears as Julie crossed the finished line. So many emotions and so much pride. 💕🏃🏼‍♀️I have no doubt that Brent is so very proud of you, too.💙 Also, right before lunch, I ran into one of my best girls who had finished her first half marathon-. So proud of Brooke too! 🏃🏼‍♀️💕God knew we needed to see each other twice in one week. @lind_say_whattt , @pswear444 loved (okay that’s a stretch-but we had fun together😁) running the 5k! 🏃🏼‍♀️🏃🏼‍♂️🏃🏼‍♀️
One of Gabe’s best friends and biggest #bravelikegabe supporters, @ladiahallie , is giving us all the #FridayFeels with that smile 😁 and her recent post after the #silodistrictmarathon . She will go down as the FIRST to achieve an Olympic Trials qualifier while wearing a #TeamBLG #bravelikegabe singlet. Congrats Ladia! 🎉 Today we celebrate YOU and TWO DAYS 2️⃣❗️until #bravelikegabe5k in St. Paul, MN. Fun Fact: Ladia pretty much coined #BRAVELIKEGABE last year. . #repost from @ladiahallie . The inaugural #SiloDistrictMarathon was a weekend I'll never forget. I got to see @gigrunewald raise $250,000 for rare cancer research and connect with fans from all over the US. I got to see so many new runners (including Chip!) start and finish a race for the first time in their lives. I got to see the smiling faces of volunteers, of friends who drove 5+ hrs (thanks, @strandersoncooper360 !), of my college coach (& man who officiated my wedding) rooting me on along the course. I got to cheer on @justingrunewald1 as he cruised along effortlessly many many minutes ahead of me (so fast, JG!). I got to sprint to the finish (JV kick!) as my best friends cheered me on down the homestretch, ultimately running 2:41 and qualifying for my first Olympic Trials. I got to spend two whole days with people I love, people who inspire me to be the best version of myself, people who love me back no matter what version I happen to be. I got to be part of something bigger than myself, something bigger than running a marathon, something ✨ -- all thanks to a chance encounter between two people with big hearts and a big desire to make a difference. Well, @gigrunewald & @chipgaines , you've made a huge difference. Thank you.
Missed #tbt so #fbf to two-ish weeks ago when I paced at #silodistrictmarathon with #beastpacing . Hot and sunny but the sweet tea and sugar cookies at the end made it all ok. Sort of. 😁 #nailedit #runhou #7run3 #7run3pacing #whattheshiplapwasithinking
I saw my sister finish a marathon. I saw @chipgaines finish a marathon in a tool belt. I saw @joannagaines pregnant and pouring water on racers. I saw @gigrunewald 😯 Wut. Thanks to Wekdeb, @fingerlakesrunning and Red Newt Racing for getting me here 💗✌🏽 #rednewtracing #silodistrictmarathon #fbf #marathon #texas #vacation #run #milestomagnolia
Feeling proud of Leonard on May 6 for running his best half marathon(time) ever! It was a HOT Waco, Texas morning. #silodistrictmarathon

#Hill workouts are like veggies, don’t like them but gotta have them. About 6 years ago I went out for a long run on a path with a lot of hills. A week later I ended up with IT Band issues, I tried to power through the pain making it worse and kept me off running for 6 months. Afraid of hills I avoided them like the plague. This year thanks to our #nationalinstruments coach I put them back in the menu and improved my time greatly. Today I try to run some type of hill once or twice a week. #austin #run #runners #crosscountry #silodistrictmarathon
Sometimes I think cookbooks are like home workout 🏋️‍♀️ equipment, we leave them laying around so that people will see them even though we never use them. 🤷‍♀️ . I got the brand spankin’ new #magnoliatablecookbook for my birthday and was determined not to let it collect dust on my shelf. Not only did I make something from the cookbook but I shared my experience with making Bulgogi from the cookbook AND how I got to actually see @joannagaines at the #silodistrictmarathon . Check out the link in my profile to catch all the details. What about you, are you a cookbook collector? . . . #kansascitymom #cookbook #cookbooklove #kansascityig #kansascity #magnoliasilos #magnolias #bulgogi #lettucewraps #joannagaines #instakc #fixerupper #midwestmom #midwestrunner #momblogger #runningmama #pickyeater #dietitianapproved
#lunchrun brought to you by “I left my garmin, flip belt, and amphipod at home.” Had a speed workout planned, but did not plan. So I ran off feeling, and worked on my breathing and form. Speed workout tomorrow... #noexcuses #NRC #silodistrictmarathon #rundisney #brooksrunning
Texas Road Trip, Day 2: Waco, Texas • We woke up early to participate in the Silo District 5k which raised funds for the @bravelikegabe Foundation. While on our run, we ran across a bridge that went over these tracks...here’s a bit of history behind the railway. Owned and operated by the Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railroad Company - the Gateway to Texas - the “Katy” arrived in Waco in the 1880s. According to wacohistory.org, “One of the most infamous publicity stunts of all time, The Crash at Crush, took place about fifteen miles north of Waco, featuring two M-K-T locomotives intentionally set on a head-on collision course on September 15, 1896. Advertised for months in advance, the event drew more than forty thousand spectators to an event which ended tragically in three deaths and dozens of injuries. The Katy settled all claims with cash and lifetime passes. William George Crush—vice president of the railroad and disciple of P. T. Barnum—was “fired” the evening of the crash, but rehired the following day. Rumor even had it he got a bonus for all the attention he brought the railroad, which curiously saw a surge in business afterwards. He worked for the company for fifty-seven years until his retirement.” 🚂
I still have photos I haven’t posted from #magnoliamarket 💕 We did not set foot into the Magnolia Bakery. The line was over an hour wait. BUT, we did go to the #Airstream and got one of all the flavors they had. (Yes, among the food trucks in the market is a #silosbakingco Airstream.) #waco #silodistrictmarathon #silodistrict

Running is not a beauty pageant 💁🏻‍♀️ by any means... it’s a lot of sweat, tears, and heart ❤️ ☝🏻here is me chasing down that finish line for a new PR last weekend! #instarunner #instarunners #womensrunningcommunity #runner #runhappy #running #runnerscommunity #halfmarathontraining #halfmarathon #silodistrictmarathon #nevergiveup #altra #brooks #marathon #runtexas #beatyesterday #runrestrepeat #runnergirl #runfree #runwild #runforlife #runnersworld #happyhealthy #fitness #fitfam #runnershoutouts #run
I am her biggest fan. Come mile 11, I saw her bend over and pull off. Sometimes those blisters, aches and pains can mess with our head and tempt us not to finish what we have worked so hard for. We ran the last 2 miles together speaking scripture and praising His name. With a newfound drive, she quickened her pace and blazed though the finish line, placing first for females U15. That is how you finish hard things...with prayer and sweat and hurt and praise (and leaving mom in the dust 👊🏻😂) I’m so proud of you @zoie_eserman Way to #runwithpurpose #bravelikegabe #silodistrictmarathon
We were so excited to be a part of the inaugural Silo District Marathon and found some amazing inspiration during our visit to @magnolia !! More great finds at www.magnolia.com #silodistrictmarathon #florals #magnolia #magnoliamarket #inspiration #eventinspiration #eventplanner #ehardtevents
#medalmonday Swipe to see both sides of the #silodistricthalfmarathon medal 🏅 I worked my legs off to earn this one, and I'm so proud of it. My temporary tattoo was my mantra while training for this race. It was perfect to have a visual reminder on race day because sometimes in the moment of pain and exhaustion my mind forgets what to focus on while I move forward. I can & I will! #silodistrictmarathon #tbdracing2018 #toughbydesign #halfmarathon #motherrunner #goaldigger #mondaymotivation
Through the valleys and the victories, my mom will always be the one I run to no matter the season. #throughthickandthin #happymothersday #silodistrictmarathon #magnoliamarket #halfmarathon #wacotexas
To the mothers who wait for us at the finish line. Happy Mother’s Day ❤️
I love you Mother ! You do so much for me ! Like drive me 10 hours to Waco , Texas for me to run a half marathon with @clintharpofficial and @magnolia and @bravelikegabe . Visit Grand Prairie , Texas ( the home town of my all time favorite singer @selenagomez !!!!! ) and cheer me on as I finished the race and you cheered me on when I started !! So far you're my biggest fan ( besides God ) ! You clean the house ( I help ) , cook a lot , drive me to races , concerts , the mall , you buy me things and sacrifice your time for me so much !

As we all appreciate the mothers in our lives, I thought I’d do a Texas-sized fan appreciation video for the #silodistrictmarathon that I ran last weekend!

ICYMI, a chance meeting between @gigrunewald and HGTV’s @chipgaines sparked a friendship that would result in the #silodistrictmarathon , raising $250,000 for cancer research. Gaines, inspired by Grunewald’s fight against cancer and athletic dedication, completed the #marathon with her as his coach in 5:21:54 👏. Who inspires you to push past your comfort zone? • 📷: @gigrunewald

Last Sunday I ran the Silo District Half Marathon in Waco, TX. It was a dream that I worked towards for many months, and I'll always remember this race and the emotion I felt when I finished. I smashed the heck out of my last 13.1 race time by 16 minutes (my last 13.1 had a Mt in the middle 😯), and I pr'ed my solo 13.1 by 3 minutes. (I ran a half distance for fun on my bday one year, and it was also my first time running that distance.) My plan for this race was to start off fast and hold on to that speed for as long as I could. Running in such a large crowd really helped me keep up in the pack until mile 11, and then the heat (almost 90) and some hills wore on me. At mile 12, I found one last reserve of energy, and I pushed the pace. I knew I was coming in with a PR, and that motivated me to run faster. Once I crossed the finish line and saw my family I was overwhelmed. To accomplish something so big while my family cheered me on and encouraged me for months while training, and knowing they waited at the finish line to watch me reach my goal made me so emotional. I fought back tears, but they came anyways while my husband took this picture. I run to show my kids that chasing after a goal isn't easy, but it's so worth it. ❤️🏃‍♀️🔆🏅#silodistrictmarathon #tbdracing2018 #halfmarathon #motherrunner #boymom #silodistricthalfmarathon #goaldigger #toughbydesign #runlikeamother #
This weekend marks my brother's 11th year of not being with us👼...always a sad weekend especially for my mom on Mother's day but she is much stronger than I could ever imagine. After last week's race at #SiloDistrictMarathon my son Tommy asked me to sign him up for a 5k and what perfect day to do it! I can't remember last time I got nervous for a race, but I had butterflys in my tummy on the way to the race cause I really wanted to pr and take a place in my age group for my brother Tom today. Tommy kicked butt out there and I'm so proud of him! We both hit prs and placed in age groups! Tommy got 3rd🥉 in a.g. with a time of 24:15 23rd out of 194🏆 they said I got 1st in a.g. but looking over results looks like might have been 2nd 🥇🤷‍♀️🥈🤷‍♀️ either way I came in 9th out of 194 time of 22:11 😍 I love that he asked me to race and my poor daughter went to the race cheering us on with her shorts on backwards 😂🤣 she has more training to do before she hits another 5k! Love my family😘 #run #running #BraveLikeGabe #family #livelikeyouneverlivedbefore #cheerish #love #instarunners #neverforgetyou #strong #beattomorrow #runhappy #brooks #fitness #raceday #outdoorgym #outdoors #getoutside #cardio #letsdothis
A few comments from @chipgaines on his race and why the heck he wore a toolbelt while running 26.2 miles. . . so inspiring! What special moments....So glad I got to be an incredibly small part of this!! . . . . #silodistrictmarathon @chipgaines @joannagaines #13point1imcomingforyou
