Today is National #kisscancergoodbye day! For those who don't know I've been training for the #SiloDistrictMarathon that will take place in Waco and all the race profits will benefit cancer research. I'm so excited to take on this challenge and complete my 4th half marathon and support an amazing cause (I’ll be running in honor of my mom and MIL). That being said--where are my runners at? I desperately need new running shoe and am looking for recommendations! ! I used to have a favorite little running shop in CA but have no idea where to start now. Clearly it’s been a while 😬 Help! What should I get? . . . #waco #halfmarathontraining #marathon #silos #joannagaines #chipgaines #cancersucks #cancerrun #runforacure #marathontraining #nike #brooks #neednewshoes #tennisshoes #runningshoes #runningshoesnike #shoes #marathonmom #marathonrunner #marathoner #runner #runnerintraining #runnertraining #wacotexas #magnolia #magnoliamarathon #screwcancer #curecancer
Officially signed up to run the 2nd annual Silo District Half Marathon 🏃🏼‍♀️
6 months until the #silodistrictmarathon and this shirt will say Half Marathon instead of 5k. Boy do I have a LOT of work to do 😳 PS- I don't run with my shirt tied... it was windy and looked really weird 😂 #wannaberunner #momswhorun #silodistrictmarathon2019 #silodistricthalfmarathon #transformation
No art without a viewer, beautiful shot at @silodistrict by @ammaarahabd . . .

So I’ve been SUPER MIA lately because...it only took me 10 weeks after my #silodistrictmarathon injury to actually go to the doctor (nurse problems) and find out I have a stress fracture in my hip 😱 Oops. Even my doc was surprised 😂 Only fourish more weeks of “rest” until I’m back in that running game! And I’ve got big goals in the next few months 🏃🏼‍♀️ (But being smarter about it this time!)
Well friends, today is the day I’m officially back to work! I was having some serious mixed emotions until I walked into my kitchen and spotted my favorite little souvenirs. These gorgeous cake stands from @magnolia signify a lot, and I love the daily inspiration they provide me each morning when I walk into my kitchen. Of course because they’re from Magnolia Market, I think of Chip and Joanna, and that in itself is inspiring for all the reasons you already know. They are also a reminder of THE BEST girls’ trip I’ve ever taken with some of the greatest friends a girl could have! Last but not least they remind me that with hard work comes opportunity. I work hard because I love my job- my students, my colleagues, and everything that comes along with it. But I also work hard because I love my family and my friends and I want to be able to have these experiences with them. So while I may be wishing for a few more minutes of sleep or an extra cup of coffee, I’m extremely thankful this morning for a career I love and the opportunities it provides! Happy Friday Eve friends!!! #gaschenave #liveloveinspire #teachingismypassion #worknowplaylater #magnoliamarket #girlstrip #silodistrictmarathon #kitchenreno #farmhouseinspiredkitchen #magnoliacakestand  #mycountryhome #countrystylemagazine #bhghome #yourhandmadehome #countrylivingmag #familycirclemagazine #inpiredbyjojo #ilovechipandjojo #wacotx
I love me some sunshine, but my soul craves crisp air, pumpkin spice everything, and nights by the fire pit. • 🎃🔥Whose ready for Fall?! • We are only a few hours away from the eighth month of the year; August, the month of new beginnings! I am believing that August will be a month of new opportunities, new beginnings, and open heavens in your life! I’m claiming that harvest is coming early!
Got a run in today!! 🙌🏻 First trimester was not easy for me. Coming off the high of #silodistrictmarathon and a PR 👉🏻 to not feeling well and tired all the time — was not what I hoped for to say the least. I’m really hoping to turn it around this 2nd trimester. Want to do better bout working out in the morning and try to get least 3 workouts in a week. Any words of encouragement or positive words are welcomed! #instarunners #texasrunner #womensrunningcommunity #runnergirl #runhappy #running #runnerscommunity #halfmarathontraining #halfmarathon #nevergiveup #altrarunning #brooks #runtexas #runrestrepeat #runfree #runwild #runforlife #runnersworld #happyhealthy #fitness #runnershoutouts #runforlife #westtexas #sanangelo #pregnantrunner #pregnantworkout #15weekspregnant
Continuing to rebuild and repost to this new account the things that have deep meaning for me and to remind and encourage you. I am so grateful for @noodleandlou to capture this very hard moment for me during the @magnolia #silodistrictmarathon where I had to actually question and remind myself out loud: Q: do your feet hurt? A: no Q: do your legs hurt? A:no Q:do your hips hurt? A:no Q:does your back, arms or shoulders hurt? A:no THEN KEEP GOING and STAY FOCUSED ON THE GOAL. . . . Remember that not everything you “think” is true or right. Your mind may try and tell yourself something that you have to got question and then remind yourself of. #deepthoughts #wecandohardthings #thanksnoodle #teamdoodle
This was the last and definitely most difficult mile for me on my half and somehow I forced myself to jump into the air and smile. Reminding myself that we all have a little more strength inside of us than we think and we are more capable than we give ourselves credit. So if you are in the thick of things, just keep putting one front in front of the other. It doesn’t matter your pace, only the direction you are headed. #silodistrictmarathon
In honor of Medal Monday and Chip & Joanna’s new baby- here’s a little #latergram from the Silo District Half! Can’t wait to head back to Waco! 🏃🏻‍♀️🏅#SiloDistrictMarathon #halfmarathon #waco #texas
Finally found an awesome piece to display my medals. Made from a French oak barrel by @beirnemarkwoodworking. Can’t wait to add more. 😊#medalsfromthepast2years #supportsmallbusiness #chicagomarathon #silodistrictmarathon #soldierfield10mile #napervillewomenshalf #longbeachhalf
Tonight was “favorite team” night at Vacation Bible School tonight! Mama represented team “Cure Cancer” and Izzy represented “Team Upward”! No matter what team shirt we wore, we are all on “Team Jesus”! • My heart is so full because 2 of the 16 Kids in our 3rd grade class made public professions of faith tonight! They responded immediately to the invitation and got out of their seats to go to the front and pray! We prayed with them and talked with them and they spoke with such assurance about what Jesus was doing in their hearts! • The joy I feel for these kids that have trusted Jesus with their life is unexplainable! I can only imagine the way the angels are rejoicing at this moment! I also imagine Camp is up there rejoicing alongside those angels as he watched his cousin, Ryder, and his best buddy Hayes give their life to Jesus! • Even though I was raised in a Christian home and was at church every time the doors were open, I didn’t feel God tug on my heart during a regular Sunday service, it was during vacation Bible School at 6 years old! God reminds me of his goodness and restores the joy of my salvation each year when it’s time for VBS! • If you’re working with kids at church, please be encouraged and know your labor is not in vain! God is building his kingdom and body of believers through each of these little children! • So tonight, my heart is full and I’m so thankful for the ministry he has called our family to! We want to see a cure for cancer, but we especially want to see souls saved for Jesus! I know that because He began this good work in me, he will carry it out all the way to completion! Thank you, Jesus, for the privilege to serve you, you don’t need me, but you want me and love me! . . #VacationBibleSchool #TeamCureCancer #CureRareCancer #CureChildhoodCancer #UpwardSports #FindACureWithCampground #GameOnVBS #SiloDistrictMarathon #silobration #Magnolia #TeamChip #SweatMemorialSelfies #ServingAtSMBC #AustynStrong #ChaseBraudasPrayerTeam #ForeverCampStrong #MoreThan4 #BoyersBeatCancer
6.10.18 Comeback Kid “I wanna go back” or “I’ll never go back”….these are two statements that seem to run through my head when I think about a place that holds many memories (good or bad), especially concerning Camp. • There are many places that have so many happy memories (Disney World, the beach, Memphis, local parks, church, favorite restaurants, etc…) that are difficult to return to now that Camp is in heaven. There are also a few places that have very hard memories (including my own home) that make it very hard to think about being in those places without thinking about the pain we endured while we were there. • Exactly 2 years ago I was in Waco, Texas (1 month before Camp was diagnosed with a very rare brain tumor). Exactly 1 month ago, I was back there again. Waco is one of those places that has changed so drastically for me. When I visited the first time in June of 2016, it was for a 10 year anniversary trip for me and Brent. We went alone, just the two of us, and did all of the touristy things concerning Waco now that Chip and Joanna have made it a bucket-list destination for so many. When I went back in May of 2018, I revisited this city for very different reasons. • On my first visit, I was at a place in my life where I knew God was about to start making some major changes, I was not at peace in my soul and I just didn’t know why. I was begging God for answers and direction for my life, but He just wasn’t giving it to me. I prayed over and over again for Him to show me His will and let me know what He wanted me to do with my life, but the answers just weren’t coming. I remember so vividly standing in the Magnolia Market by myself (and with hundreds of strangers) when I felt a tangible touch from the Lord. I heard Him whisper to me (not audibly, but very loudly in my heart)… He said, “Sarah, just wait. The answers are coming, I just can’t tell you yet. Be patient and wait on me.” • Remainder of post in comments... #ForeverCampStrong #FindACureWithCampground #ItIsWellWithMySoul #Silobration #Psalms28v7 #CampRocks4Kids #MagnoliaMarket #SiloDistrictMarathon #MoreThan4 #CureRareCancer #CureChildhoodCancer #ChildhoodCancerAwareness #Magnolia #HarpDesign
Late on my monthly miles and under my monthly goal miles booo😣 I took a week off after the kids got out of school to hang out with them and do cool stuff😎 and I'm sure my body appreciated the break too. Then I got sick. Been sick since May 31st and today finally went to Dr for some medicine😷 to get this body better and back to running again! I'm about 12 weeks away from my first ultra marathon which means I def need to start putting in the miles and figure out a summer schedule with the kids home 🤔 anyway May was a great month 96 miles and hit new 5k pr and my 2nd Marathon was like the best day ever at the #silodistrictmarathon in #waco and met some incredible runners💓 @gigrunewald @justingrunewald1 #chipgaines #bravelikegabe #letsdothis #summer #summersickness #running #run #ultramarathontraining #marathontraining #instarunner #motherrunner #momrunner #garmin #brooks #runhappy #runchat

My race shirt came in the mail today. I was in awww ❤️❤️❤️❤️. My guy @cliffordfriesen & I were late to the race on 6th Of May due to driving from Dallas. One ☝️ of gals had taken my home 🏡 address since, I didn’t get a shirt which I was ok 👌. This was 1st annual Silo District Marathon @magnolia @cityofwaco with @chipgaines for a cancer fundraiser. I was running 🏃‍♀️ in memory of my dad, Dan. Jesus love 💗 all I can say! Thank you 🙏 @chipgaines @magnolia @joannagaines ! “Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one receives the prize?

Finally getting around to posting some pics / videos from the big day #silodistrictmarathon @magnolia @chipgaines chips speech and his crossing the finish line in a tool belt. #hugerespect don’t know how he did the full marathon wearing that toolbelt but he did. 😆👌 It was a fantastic and well organized day they managed to raise $250k for the charity @bravelikegabe first marathon I’ve ever done and won’t be my last, I’ll definitely return next year for the next one #silodistrictmarathon #running #charity #runforsomething #bringchange #irishfitfam #waco #silos #overcome #nothingventurednothinggained #sunburn #farmerstan 🤣
#tbt to that time when I ran in the #silodistricthalfmarathon earlier this month. It was a dream of a run. I set a new PR Yay! And I enjoyed my first trip to TX with my husband and boys. Hopefully we can go to Waco again next year. ❤️🏃‍♀️ #silodistrictmarathon #tbdracing2018 #toughbydesign #motherrunner #runlikeamother
Taking it back to my last half in Waco, TX! Summer is a time for me to focus on training rather than racing. While these last few weeks have felt repetitive, I am excited to focus on speed work and endurance looking ahead to crush my races this fall. Whether you are tackling small distances or big goals these next few weeks take time to envision the end result if you are feeling lost. I know I’ll come to appreciate my schedule this month as opposed to back to back multi-run weekends come September and October! Even if it takes more of a bribe such as an email from Seawheeze stating that @lululemon race specific shorts are en route, let the little things ignite and fuel your goals. Happy running 😎🏃🏻‍♀️
Did this virtual 5K after work last night with @coda1965 and it was slow and hot and now I’m sore and more sure than ever how amazing @gigrunewald is. Go girl! #bravelikegabe #silodistrictmarathon
But like can I relive this day?? This was one of my favorite race days, and I still can't believe I ran a freaking marathon 3 weeks ago. P.S. If you look reallly close on the left side you can see me. 😃#wewerebuiltforthis
Running with your Heart (and your Mom & Sister) Come read our story today over at the @momentumjewelry blog. Filled with inspiration, determination, and a whole lotta love. I felt honored to write our running story. This is written for others to know you can DO it, don’t ever give up, and know your worth. That finish line may seem far, but if you run with your 💙 and not your legs, you’ll find the strength to finish strong.

Take me back to driving for 25 hours after running a marathon with @l_pell 🤠❤️🚐 #silodistrictmarathon #texas #vanlife #gazzellie
It’s taken me a while to share my thoughts, and I know this will not come close to conveying my feelings, but... The original plan was for my daughter and her friend to run their first half marathon together, and I’d tag along, because after all, it was going to be @chipgaines ’s first marathon, we’d visit the Silos, Magnolia Table, and hopefully see @chipgaines and @joannagaines in person!! So as I thought about the trip - a dangerous thing - the idea of walking the 5k emerged. After all, what was I going to do while I waited for them at the finish line?! About 6 years ago I had huffed and puffed through a 5k in 1 1/2 hrs. Maybe I could do it again. So I tried my ❤️ phone app and went on a fast walk close to my house. I did my 3.1 mi in 1 hr. 10 min and didn’t die!😁 With 30 days before the race, I decided to register for the 5k. But... here it goes... only AFTER I had registered did I realize there was a 1hr time limit! For many, this race was/would be a piece of cake. For me it was an opportunity: • to share an amazing experience with my daughter • to prove to myself that I can still set goals and feel a sense of accomplishment, even in small baby steps • to go (a little bit 😉) beyond my comfort zone - that’s where growth happens • to have faith: “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” • to put into practice how my husband lived his life - do not waste opportunities - live life to the fullest • to realize that although my current life situation does not look anything like we planned (now a widow), I can continue (most days) to live a life that has meaning, purpose, fun, and not take for granted! PS I was able to finish the 5k under 1 hour! My daughter and friend finished their half marathon strong. I got to meet & walk beside @jimmydon522 And we saw the family, including @joannagaines waiting as @chipgaines crossed the finish line with his daughter - how emotional!! #lifeisajourney #blessed #silodistrictmarathon #wacotexas #yougotthis #ilovebeingmom #5k #halfmarathon #bravelikegabe #livelifetothefullest #icandoallthings #planetfitness #jimmydon
Its been a few weeks since the #silodistrictmarathon . I've allowed myself to heal from some postpartum issues and so far I haven't had any more pain! Jake and I started up @80dayobsession last week (this is my 3rd time starting all the way over. Maybe this time I'll go ALL the way through 😂) And today I got in a slow 2.5 miles! 🙌 I'm hoping to run ONLY 3-4 times a week, although that gets hard because I want to always run!! . . . . . #withoutlimitz #zensahnation #teamzensah #houstonchevronmarathon #houstonrunningcommunity #houstonrunner #strongforme #strongforjune #strongwithgod #tailwindnutrition #nuunhydration #gunutrition #mizuno #nordictrack #80dayobsession #runlikeagirl
5 Miles + Business Talk + Lauren Pratt Encounter ⠀⠀ Today, Carlee and I ran a few miles together in order to connect and talk shop a bit. The last few months have been super busy with @bostonmarathon , @okcmarathon , #silodistrictmarathon , @solidrocktraining running clinic, and a #Vegas trip for Carlee. It was good to talk about some things while sweating. It’s proven that when people walk or run together with elevated heart rates, they are more open and honest. I think this is why running buddies become some of the best friends you will ever have. Speaking of friends, we ran into @lv_pratt during our run. She always adds a dose of speed and fun to every run. 💚 See, running buddies are the best! ⠀⠀ TODAY is the LAST DAY to enter our @tierrasunglasses GIVEAWAY. See Monday’s post for details.

One of the best race courses I have run! My 10th half marathon in the books. #silodistrictmarathon
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.

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
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 🙃
