It’s finally starting to look like fall in Ohio πŸ‚β€οΈ October means the Marine Corps Marathon is coming up! 19 days! I will be wearing my #altraescalantes and can’t wait to represent #wearblueruntoremember with my Gold Star family.
Running shoe upgrade!!!! After training for and running my first 50k, it was time to get a new pair of shoes! Stopped at @dickpondrunning yesterday and BOTH of us ended up leaving with a new pair of @altrarunning Escalantes πŸ˜‚
Swig of beer for the battle scared and tested Escalantes, Badwater put a hurt on them but they good for another 500miles. First 20 miler since Badwater, thought it appropriate to run in the shoes that got me through much of the race, the beautifully scared Altra Escalante 1.5s...The heat and me kicking something(?) out on the course worked a corner off my shoeπŸ˜‚ but these babies still ride as good as new! Ran up to the Pinnacles NP and back...So many grapes!!! Flag at half staff for J.M. And snapped a pic of some poor fella that lost his pincers😳 #2 .5kverts #altraescalantes #beautifulbattlescars #orangemud #xoskin #driven #mdrive #pinnaclesnp #soledad #insidetrail @altrarunning @orangemud @xoskin @insidetrail @mdrive
Wednesday sunrise run in my new #altraescalantes πŸƒπŸ½β€β™€οΈ I am cautiously hopeful that after 15 years in #brooksravennas that no longer work for me, that these amazing things might be the ones! For the record, it’s super fun to have to switch shoes four weeks before a half iron race... πŸ€”πŸ˜ πŸ˜Ž #keeplearning #zerodrop #wholenewworld #adapt #savageman2018 #savagerousey #allthehills
Torrential β›ˆοΈ today and it felt more like swimming. Loving my new #altraescalantes which performed beautifully thru the massive puddles. (PS... super happy the lightning moved over us quickly, was getting nervous out there!) After all of the heat we've been having, this morning was a refreshing change of pace and glad we made it out to brave the elements πŸ’ͺ#mrtt #njrunners
I started off my Saturday morning doing a fun run with the company, The Running Depot. I ran for about 3 to 4 miles. I apparently beat everyone I ran with back to the store. #runner #running #funrun #forefootrunner #runningtraining #staminatraining #altraescalantes #runningshoes #flashtshirt #runningisfun #runnerslashswimmer #therunningdepot
I am so proud of myself for running in the McHenry County 5k Patriot run. I ran in my Altra Escalantes shoes. I’m holding the American flag with pride. #running #runner #patriot5krun #5k #altraescalantes #runningshoes #runnersofinstagram #runningisfun
This picture doesn't do Enderby Cliffs justice! An absolutely amazing hike. I've been hiking a ton this spring and it's been a really nice complement to the time I've been putting in at they gym lifting weights. . . . I also haven't had any blisters or foot aches at all. Altras are THE best walking/running shoes on the market right now. Wide toe boxes that actually fit the shape of your foot. Feel free to ask me questions if you're looking at getting new/better shoes! . . . #altrashoes #altra #altratorrins #altralonepeaks #altrasuperiors #altraescalantes #altraHIITs #altrarunning #altraCanada #getoutside #getofftheroad #natureisbeautiful #natureismyhappyplace #whatsmovingyou #okanaganlife #exploreBC #exploreokanagan #mountainlife #beautifulbritishcolumbia #britishcolumbia #beautifulbc #okanagan #okanaganlake #enjoytheview #natureinspiredliving #imagesofcanada

Spent the rest of Star Wars day working on my strength training. As the old saying goes, To work hard you have to train hard. #workout #workoutmotivation #starwarsday #maythe4thbewithyou #strenghttraining #strength #altraescalantes #shoeswithnosocks #strong
Warm/windy/recovery 10, stoked to rock the new #Altraredteam singlet totally hyped on how well it shows with the #OrangeMud endurance vest! #Altraredteam #altraescalantes over 1kmiles in these red Escalantes. #insidetrailracing #orangemudelite #mdriveeliteandjointtherapy @insidetrail @altrarunning @orangemud @mdrive
πŸƒOkie dokie!!πŸƒ I'm certain I caused the lady in the shop a fair amount of pain.... at one point she πŸ™ˆ.. and πŸ™Š.. whilst she quietly reflected in horror upon the amount of torture I've put the feet through over the years... But alas, it's over.. Say hello to my new Altras So comfy! I can't wait to run in them πŸ™Œ #running #active #runningshoes #comfyshoes #altraescalantes #altra #roadrunning #happyfeet
New #altraescalantes looking pretty slick in black (used to have blue). I have to wait for the rainβ˜”οΈ to stop before taking these for a spin @altrarunning #instarunners #50ktraining #running
Checked out Rocky Creek Trail to add some vert and see where the climb heads up towards...Scrambled some big rocks(fun), but with the sprinkles in the air and the forecast for hit and miss rain didn’t want to push too far, so saved the rest of that after the first couple of pitches for another time...Went down the Rocky Creek Trail itself but soon grew tired of flicking ticks and crossing the creek so decided to head back to run Indians - Arroyo. Did this run without water or a bottle so I could stuff an extra jacket and 2 pairs of gloves in my pack, and because I like to challenge my body to make due sometimes...The day actually felt pretty warm to start but the temps soon plummeted as a cold front passed through. I got pretty thirsty but found a couple of springs and drank sweet, cold nectar from those. Great day with some snow in the higher peaks, a few showers, only one was heavy, it did get pretty cold, but the sights were enough to counterbalance that sufficiently :) #ventanawilderness #bigsur #springwatersofresh #arroyoseco #5kvertsday #embracethespace #altraescalantes #zerolimits #orangemudpfv #orangemud #orangemuddirtunit #insidetrailracing #mdrive @altrarunning @orangemud @insidetrail @mdrive
From Arroyo Seco, amidst a few showers...I love that I have years and years(Lord Willing) to grow into this place. I could run this same route everyday and be satisfied, thankfully there is so much more to be seen and felt out here, all I have to do is open a map and a whole trail system hidden from much of the world unfurls before me :) right now in the rain I’m enjoying the no sketch route, but there is so much more to come...And you know what The Lord says about life(paraphrasing), it’s not how you started but how you finish! #embracethespace #altraescalantes #3kvertsday #ventanawilderness #lospardresnationalforest #bigsur #arroyoseco #givethanksandpraise @altrarunning @orangemud @insidetrail @mdrive
Big Sur - we got us a bit of snow! Ran Santa Lucia Trail to Indians. Saw trace amounts around 1700’ and then 1” - 2” consistently after 2k stuck really well in the shade, especially with the really cold wind that developed...Big bonus was the tasty brew at the seepage! There were about 5-6 so despite wanting more, I just took 1 :) hit the spot! Tremendously neat day, with great views all day and the unique wonderland feel that snow brings to an already special and spectacular place :-)# #4 .5kverts #bigsurtrails #ventanawilderness #bigsursnow #embracethespace #altraescalantes #orangemud #insidetrailracing #mdrive @insidetrail @altrarunning @orangemud @mdrive
First run off the bike of 2018 at a moderate zone 3 effort in my Escalantes! Now it feels like I'm in triathlon training mode 😊
A 10k with a little resistance. Range of motion exercise with ankle weights attached. No I didn’t run in them. πŸ˜† #train #trainhard #conditioning #breathingexercises #runfast #plantbasedathlete #veganrunner #vegan #altraescalantes #form #goodposture #runlikehell #distancerunning #livingandrunningwithraybing #traintowin #tiptop
I set out this year with one goal, to find the joy again. I wanted to change the way I trained. Try new things, focus on strength and speed over endurance. Put in fewer miles and make the ones I do run count. . I wanted to added in free cardio workouts where I got to choose what i do based on honest self evaluation of how I feel. . I wanted to find what works for me. I wanted to come back and STAY free of injury. . I'm amazed how many people have opinions on how I train. It's cool, they need to validate their own training by tearing mine apart. . Today's 4 miles were short, sweet and full of sweat. You do you, I'll do me. Stop comparing, stop judging... Or at least do it silently where I can't hear you please. . #onedayatatime #comeback #runnersofinstagram #igrunners #runnersofig #trailtime #trailrunning #trailrunner #trails #mbtrails #ultraislife #ultratraining #crosstraining #ultra #dothework #noexcuses #teamswagger . #Garmin #runtights #donuttights #donuts #altrarunning #altraEscalantes #tracklife
I overheard a nasty comment about my body today. Never judge a book by its cover. This body has done epic shit. . My belly is flabby, my arms have loads of jiggle and my thick thighs/legs are powerhouses that can carry me anywhere I want to go. . I don't look like a magazine cover. Few people do. . I am strong. I am fierce. I work hard. Every damn day. I own this body. I've worked very hard for it. Stop judging. Stop comparing. Start loving. πŸ–– . #onedayatatime #comeback #runnersofinstagram #igrunners #runnersofig #trailtime #trailrunning #trailrunner #trails #mbtrails #ultraislife #ultratraining #crosstraining #ultra #dothework #noexcuses #teamswagger . #Garmin #runtights #starwars #beyoutiful #ownit #stop #frysaucehats #nevergiveup #momentumjewelry #tracklife #altrarunning #altraEscalantes
12 days of grinding! Looking forward to Running the Rose January 27th! πŸŒΉπŸƒπŸ½β€β™€οΈ Shoutout to my favorite road running and training shoes that feel amazing and keep my toenails happily intact: #AltraEscalantes #EmbraceTheSpace #100MilesInTheBank #BlueMoonShoes #GoalGrind #PRsOverERs #AltraRunning #ZeroLimits #TeamTROT #TROT
Taking Joey @Stoneridge out to a few cool spots and on a bit of a fun hike/little scramble/some running, and all around sweet little bit of adventuring in the Pinnacles NP. Plenty more to see and do. #almost5kverts #altraescalantes #embracethespace #altrarunning #orangemud #insidetrailracing #mdrive #pinnaclesnationalpark @altrarunning @orangemud @insidetrail @mdrive @stone_ridge
There is a lot of Christmas spirit going on in my house! Treadmill run in my new groovy Christmas Zensah socks! 'Tis the Season Friends! β˜ƒοΈπŸŽ„β˜ƒοΈβ€οΈ #teamzensah #ATY #ivegotgoals #altraescalantes #smiledaily
Winter Tip: Wool socks help keep your feet & legs warm through the fall and the snow. I got these from Costco and they are fantastic!
These are currently my favorite shoes! The Escalantes by @altrarunning. They are the perfect combination of zero drop, toe box, not too high of a stack height, but still nice a coushiony. What are you favorite running shoes? Tell me in the comments below!
10 years later and a little bit faster! It was an awesome day catching up with old friends and making new ones.

A decade ago I ran my 1st race the half marathon at the Baltimore Running Festival! Tomorrow I will celebrate by running it again and see if I can run better than the 1:47:44 I did back then on legs still recovering from a 100miler πŸ˜‹ #runhon #baltrunfest #altrarunning #altraescalantes #patagoniarunning #springtribe #myspringenergy #garminfenix3 #garminproveit #injinji #baltimoreroadrunners #runhardliveeasy #medstarsportsmedicine #runlife
2 miles may not be a long run for most, but it was our first long run of half marathon training and we definitely pushed it! I am so out of shape and getting my endurance back is going to be a lot of work! So glad to have you there to push me again today @badweber11 πŸ˜ŠπŸƒπŸ½β€β™€οΈπŸƒπŸ½β€β™€οΈ#halfmarathontraining #nucmrtt #badmotherrunners #longrunsaturday
Long ride Saturday and a cruiser ride Sunday pacing a long run. Saved a baby turtle on the way out and saw momma turtle poking her head out on the way back. 🐒 🚴 πŸš²πŸƒπŸ½
Got my pair of #bostonmarathonedition of the #altraescalantes today. Most likely I would never wear them due to being a limited edition shoe. #altranerdlife
I've had the opportunity to run in my new #altraescalantes a few times now and I LOVE them! They are some of the most comfortable running shoes I've ever had. Thanks @altrarunning !
