I had an incredibly busy week, all planned by me, but still crazy busy. I was not able to get my usual workouts in, so I did my best at getting in what I could. I did run and I was able to go to Friday CrossFit! I had an awesome partner that I tried to keep up with, she killed her five rounds! It is important to try your best even when life is busy. Try to still keep that body moving and work towards those goals. I have hit goals and I have made more to strive for! I have had setbacks and comebacks and it will continue that way because well, life! Life happens and plans can change in an instance. You have to keep working and don’t sweat the small stuff. #crossfitfriday #getyourbuttunderthebarprincess #thecomebackisgreaterthanthesetback #crossfiteasttucson #cfet #motherrunner #momstrong #momstrength #noexcuses
8-ish tempo miles at gmp-ish... My garmin watch only had about 5% battery left, so used mapmyrun on my phone too. My headlamp stopped working for a few seconds when I was in the darkest part of my run (sidewalk in the woods), thankfully only for a few seconds, but scary!! The light was dull to begin with, so I kept checking to see if it was even on a few times. Around mile 6.5, took that fantastic sunrise pic! Forgot to actually stop my watch, so when I went to restart it, it actually stopped my watch. I’m guesstimates for about .25 miles, maybe a minute or so. But I didn’t stop mapmyrun. So time wise, mapmyrun is probably closest to accurate time, but I believe overshot the distance. I was at 7.69 when I got to my house, so ran up and down my street to get to 8 miles on my garmin. But was already at a little over 8 when I got to my house in mmr. So thinking actual distance was 8.3ish miles and time minus the pic stop was probably 1:06-ish. Not bad!!! Tomorrow is a rest day and Sunday is my last big long run... 20 miles!!! Aaahhh!!! Not looking forward to the taper weeks... Bought a new headlamp at Marathon Sports today because there is no way I’m running 20 miles in the pitch dark morning without a visible light! So thankful it was on sale! #viviansroadtobq #viviansroadtohealing #jumpforjoyrunning #marathontraining #baystatemarathon #motherrunner #runnergirl #temporun #waylandrunners #natickrunners

Have a specTACOlar weekend. 🌮🌮 I feel like manhusband doesn't understand the versatility of this costume. I would literally wear it...all. the. time. Perfect prenatal AND postnatal wear. Annnndddd....now I want tacos. Good thing tomorrow is leg day, so I can eat all of the tacos. #runningfortwo #sumontherun #liftingfortwo #slcsolesisters #tooprettybrandambassador #iifym #fwtfl #wasatchrunner #motherrunner #veganpregnancy #empoweredwomenempowerwomen #investinyourhealth #investinyourself #fitmomsclub
Hey everyone! This year we will be participating in the CIBC Run for the Cure on September 30th. I think it's important to get involved and am thrilled that some of my friends and my family, especially my boys, will be joining me in support of all affected by breast cancer, including myself. . 1 in 8 women will develop breast cancer and it is with contributions from amazing people like you and me that we can continue to raise the funds needed to continue life saving research. I personally have received such amazing care already and the resources would not have been available without our continued support. . If you would like to donate, please follow the link in my bio to my fundraising page. If you are unable to donate - no worries! Your positive thoughts are priceless and I will gladly take those. ❤️ . Thank you all so much for your support! Together we can make breast cancer beatable! . #cibcrunforthecure #breastcancer #fuckyoucancer #cancer #runningmom #winnipegrunner #winnipeg #support #staystrong #running #motherrunner

Marathon pictures! The photographer evidently wasn’t until the last 1-2 miles because I look like I’m dying in all of them 🤣 I don’t even care though because I ran a f*cking marathon 🤷🏼‍♀️ #montanamarathon #marathonmama #runningmama #motherrunner #runmontana #montana #thesemotherscanrun #crazycompression #brooksrunning #nathanhydration
My 80th parkrun at #greenwayparkrun this morning. Been whinging about my tired legs all week but felt fine this morning! #running #motherrunner #parkrunau #loveparkrun
Tried to get my 8 mile run in between downpours. Got through 6 feeling great and then it started flooding again. I’ll have to tack those 2 miles onto my recovery run tomorrow 🤷🏼‍♀️ #motherrunner #longrun #rainyrun #atleastitwascool #soaked #rainraingoaway
I finally decided that I wouldn't be able to run in the Mount Rushmore half this weekend. I am still dealing with some foot pain, and even though running on it wouldn't hurt my foot anymore, my gate is off so I might actually cause an injury elsewhere. Also why you haven't seen any workout post lately. 🤷‍♀️ Anyway, I am able to defer my entry to the race next year! Plus, we get to have a fun weekend away with Grandma and Grandpa to enjoy the area. Thank you for all the well wishes! It is greatly appreciated. I will be back on the road soon and cannot wait to get back to my regular routine because my anxiety is so much better! There are some fun new programs coming in the next few months, and I'm so excited to share them with you! . . . #motherrunner #bamr #halfmarathontraining #mountrushmorehalfmarathon #womensrunning #momwhoruns #thisis39
Stopped by @runners_hi Aiea to check and see if they received their new Wave Riders shipment. I thought about calling, but you know my affinity for #runningerrands 😁 so I stopped by on my comfy 10 miler this afternoon instead. Stoked they are in and boy are they bright! The brighter the shoe the faster you go, right???🤔😂🏃‍♀️ Ps, it was HOT out today! Guess what flavor of @skratchlabs I had in my pack today? Hint, it has 🍋 in it. 💛 #jbergruns #motherrunner #momswhorun #rockingmotherrunners #skratchlabs #fueledbyskratchlabs #hawaiirunninglab #strollerwarriorspearlharbor #runnershiaiea #goalgetter #betterthanyesterday #runstrong #runstreak #runningstreak #runnersofinstagram #shoplocal #runhappy #runaloha
#flexfriday • Bring on the weekend! I don't know about you, but I am ready for the weekend! It has been a long busy week and this mama is tired 🤣 • Time for some time with my boys 🤗🤗
So excited to be running the @chicagohalf marathon this weekend! The last time I ran it was in 2015 and then I ran the 5k event the following year at 7 months pregnant! I’ve come a long way and learned so much in the process, but I’m not done!!! Good luck to all the runners this weekend!! 💕 • • • #fbf #halfmarathoner #preggierunner #motherrunner #chirun #halfmarathon #chicagohalfmarathon2018 #chicagorunner
#flatrunner for tomorrow’s #SeaWheeze half marathon. It may be more of a swim than a run, but it will be fun regardless (and can’t be any wetter than last weekend’s half). Salty.

Episode 34 is out with @annmariekirkpatty ! I have been following Annmarie for awhile now on Instagram from afar (kind of creepy I know), but we all do it guys, so don’t judge. AnnMarie, her husband and their two boys live in Fort Collins Colorado where they both work for a super cool non-profit called Mountains and Plains. The Mountains and Plains Institute for Lifelong Learning and Service is a non-profit corporation committed to providing high quality and affordable educational courses, travel, and service learning opportunities for adults- to give people an idea of how amazing these trips are, AnnMarie has helped people over 80 summit #14ersofcolorado (HIGH altitude mountains for those who aren’t aware). AnnMarie is also a very speedy runner- like OTQ speedy. To make her more impressive, while she did run in high school she didn’t start seriously running until after the birth of her two boys- both of whom were 9+ pound babies (this woman is a hero). She is coached by her husband, and something they are doing is working, as Annmarie has impressive PR’s of 1:14 in the ½ marathon, and is going for the A standard OTQ qualifier of 2:37 this fall. AnnMarie is down to earth, loves the earth, is so talented in many areas, and was a pleasure to speak with. I am sure that everyone will enjoy this episode as much as I loved recording it. Thank you again @annmariekirkpatty for being a guest on the podcast. #chasingbraverypodcast #chasingbravery #womenempoweringwomen #olympictrials2020 #motherrunner #mountainsandplains #colorado #fortcollinscolorado #lovethearth #runlikeagirl #chasebigdreams
#dayoffvibes kids off to school, play with baby (aka let her crawl all over me), bake brownies, finally get baby to sleep so I can swim, home for a quick trainer ride (using the baby jail I gave my hubs such a hard time for buying) off to the #ewu women’s soccer game, into town to pick up my packet for tomorrow’s #happygirlshalfmarathon then home to make dinner, bathe baby, drink all the wine and eventually go to bed! I don’t know why I’m tired!!!! #ironmomtraining #ironmom #trimama #imaz #postpartumcomeback #triathletesofinsta #motherrunner #womensrunningcommunity #ironmantraining #imaz2018
It's going to be something tomorrow, my first 50 mile race in fascinating conditions. Here's to badassery and a little crazy town. Really I'm just doing it for the candy.
Decided last minute to get this run in tonight instead of tomorrow. Happily enjoying more wine than I would have if I was running in the morning. 👌🏽🍷🔥First weekend night that it hasn’t been a million degrees, gross humidity and all the bugs on our deck. Bring on fall weather... especially next weekend 🤞🏽🤞🏽🤞🏽🤞🏽🤞🏽🤞🏽#slamdcrunsragnar #slamrunrepeat #ragnartraining #rundc #runthedistrict #ragnardc #motherrunner #momswhorun #womensrunningcommunity #runnersofinstagram
5 miles on a Friday and possibly the most consistently negative splits I've ever done. If you couldn't tell, these were #solomiles . I love pushing my girls but it's amazing how much faster you can feel (and GO) when you're not pushing 80# 😬.

This week I've seen my mom and dad 3 times, my sister twice, my mil once, my coworkers once, and lots of friends throughout the week. ♥️ As runners, we tend to always have a strong front and handle discomfort really well. 🏃‍♀️ But having a baby is kind of a big deal, and keeping a toddler alive at the same time is an even bigger feat. 😊 I'm so blessed to have so much love showered on our family before I even realize how much I need it. 🙏 _ We visited a local farm with my mom today and had such a good time with Cadence while Callie snoozed in the carrier. 👩‍🌾🚜 _ Then I left the girls and went for a solo hike near my parent's house.🍃 Ended up getting lost and did about 6.5 miles. 😬 And a yellow jacket stung me and chased me down, so I had my first postpartum "run" escaping his wrath. 😂🐝 But it was just what I needed to get a little space and solitude (even though nature chased me down and attacked🐝 🤣). _ #motherrunner #postpartumfitness #fitpregnancy #newborn #trailrunner #hiking #3weekspostpartum #womenrunning #womensrunningcommunity

I wish I had half the spunk, personality, and character of this little peanut. She made her Friday Night Lights debut tonight and crushed it. I'm looking forward to 10 years from now when this is our regular fall Friday night.
“Forget a helicopter. A good parent is a standby fighter jet.” Moments after this picture was taken, a big black SUV came charging at our driveway, but what happened next completely surprised me, shook me to my core, and inspired me to be a better mom. Catch the story (and happy ending) on my blog (link in bio 😘). And for the love of all moms everywhere, let’s build each other up, ladies.

I feel like I’ve hit that point in summer running when I’m just over it. The heat is oppressive and it is zapping all the fun out of running. Luckily I think we’re getting a reprieve soon (like tomorrow), but I think it’s all early mornings or night runs for me from here on out. Do you ever hit a heat breaking point? Like when you aren’t sure if you are actually in hell or not? 😈🔥
When he told you you're not good enough When he told you you're not right When he told you you're not strong enough To put up a good fight When he told you you're not worthy When he told you you're not loved When he told you you're not beautiful That you'll never be enough Fear, he is a liar He will take your breath Stop you in your steps Fear he is a liar He will rob your rest Steal your happiness Cast your fear in the fire 'Cause fear he is a liar When he told you were troubled You'll forever be alone When he told you you should run away You'll never find a home When he told you you were dirty And you should be ashamed When he told you you could be the one That grace could never change Fear he is a liar He will take your breath Stop you in your steps Fear he is a liar He will rob your rest Steal your happiness Cast your fear in the fire 'Cause fear he is a liar -Zach Williams * * * These lyrics were so timely today.

#fbf to last years Seawheeze. We had such a blast! I got in this year but at the last second couldn’t make it work. But it panned out cause now both Kati and I get to hang out together in Mexico this weekend instead! 🙌🏼
It has arrived✨ Get ready for some photo spam. My wrist also got a little update so I am all set on the tech front for a while. Delivery day makes unapologetic Apple nerd very happy 🤓
Scenes from tonight. Tough race, wasn’t much faster than my July 5K time, but this course was very hilly and I’m at the end of a long day (and week!) On the plus side, my legs felt pretty strong 💪🏼 just couldn’t get the breathing under control. Avg heart rate of 177 bpm means I pushed it hard, so I’ll take it as a small victory/step towards where I want to be. Now for bed!! . #momlife #eatruntravel #oisellevolée #altrarunning #gofarfeelgood #cantstopwontstop #motherrunner #bamr #flystyle #boymom #nuunlife #nuunambassador #5K #tgif #race #headupwingsout
My crazy mileage-cramming week is over 😅😅 I won’t be doing that again anytime soon. Snuck 5 miles in while my daughter did her soccer ⚽️ thang. A fellow parent was going for a run as well, so we just ran together 🏃🏻‍♀️🏃🏻‍♂️ Have I ever mentioned how much I love runner pals? Now, it’s time to relax and enjoy my parents! They’re coming to the Springs at such a beautiful time and I cannot wait to show them the city I have fallen so in love with 😍 If my kids let me get five minutes, that is 🤪 #runcolorado #coloradorunner #motherrunner #strongasamother #soccermom #runnerfriends #memaandpapa #guesswhoiscomingtotown #ihavecoolsocks
"You will get through this season. This too shall pass. Don't set the rest of your life up on a downhill slope because of one hard season." - Rachel Hollis . . I read this quote today and it stopped me dead in my tracks. This hasn't been our year or season. It truly feels like we are asking "ok, what else do you want to throw at us?" It was exactly what I needed to read. It was exactly what I needed to say out loud! It is exactly what I need to keep reminding myself every day until we come up on the other side of this! Goodness, @msrachelhollis thank you for this! This book has been amazing to really dive into this week. It has helped my perspective and ease some of my anxiety about the way I have been feeling. If you haven't read Girl, Wash Your Face go get it!

Beautiful (and hot 😰) night to run in downtown Winston-Salem 🏃🏻‍♀️ if I hadn’t missed it last year, this would be my seventh #moonlightmadness5k 😱 Do you have any races you run year after year?

A little 3 mile fun #run with my baby girl. We made a pit stop to visit some goats 😃 #running #ilovetorun she rode her bike 🚲 and I followed. #motherrunner
From double fisting drinks to double fisting babies... how my Friday nights have changed! But I wouldn’t trade it for anything (ok maybe for one night every once in a while... 🍷 🍷). Happy Friday friends!
Nothing like trying to do a home yoga workout and then you become a playground... 😂 How was your morning workout? #yogamum #athomeyoga
To everyone running @runsheisbeautiful SB tomorrow, have SO MUCH FUN!!!! #fbf #sheisbeautiful10k (also shoutout to people running #SeaWheeze !!)
Hard runs make us stronger. Though I have to admit, I told myself if I crossed paths with my husband while on this run I was going to pawn the bob off on him! Lucky for him, that didn't happen 😂. I didn't realize til I got home I was moving faster than I thought I was so then all the struggling made more sense, and I felt proud for pushing through the 5 miles! • • • Pic inspiration comes from channeling my inner @chelseylovestorun for this pose! • • • • • #injuredrunner #fitmom #postpartumfitness #postpartumdepression #runner #runningmom #realmotherrunner #thesemotherscanrun #thesweatlife #happiness #runtheday #inspiringwomenrunners #womensrunningcommunity #explore #runtheday #bamr #smile #sportsbrasquad #ihavearunnersbody #motherrunner #irunthisbody #strollerrunning #strollermiles #run #fortheloveofrunning
The road to good nutrition is paved with good intentions 😂😂 So took healthy food to my work convention... which to be honest is more fun than work should be....but instead got Sugar Bear Pecans and have every intention of eating the rest of the bag all by myself tomorrow! But we took the stairs everywhere and walked everywhere. Also I offered to carry my sisters bag which was just as heavy as mine so probably about 15lbs each. May be indulging but still trying! 💪💪 #gettingfit #trying #faiwillnotwin #motherrunner #runnersofinstagram #irunthisbody #iamme #myfitnesspal #myjourney #weightloss #doterradream18 #depressionwillnotwin
Did some Friday speed work since I wasn’t feeling too great yesterday. 1 mile W/U 5 sets of 800m with recovery jog/walk in between And cool down to end the this session. So happy I squeezed this workout in and I must admit it was hard to do on my own but lassoed this yasso(800) 🤣 * * * #yasso800s #countdowntomarathon #ces #chicagoendurancesports #runnersofchicago #chocagomarathon2018 #taperweeks #runningcommunity #womenwhorun #motherrunner #marathontraining #speedworkout #thatshitwasrough
Day 5/80 done! Leg workout... my legs are on fire right now and it hurts to squat and sit down! 😂 Sammy was alert and happy during 90% of my workout and was only fussy twice (easily remedied) and then he fell asleep as I was finishing up. He slept for about 20 minutes which gave me enough time to squeeze in a quick shower too! #momwin #8weekspostpartum
So much humidity today. Had to run based on heart rate, which made me miss my target paces. I am so excited for the possibly of cooler weather next week!

Day 3️⃣0️⃣2️⃣ - 3.02 miles - Sometimes while I’m running, I’m completely zoned out and then I realize that my hands are doing their own thing. It reminds me of the Ricky Bobby “I don’t know what to do with my hands” scene from Talladega Nights. Cracks me up every time! Anyway, 3 miles done in the glorious Florida morning heat. 🙌🏼🌴 * * * #motherrunner #streaking #streaker #runeveryday #runstagram #igrunners #runstrong #runnerscommunity #runner #progressnotperfection #runhappy #lululemon #runningstreak #garminfenix3 #garminconnect #beatyesterday #runstreak #nrc #strongnotskinny #nikeepicreact #zensah
Lululemon Seawheeze 2018! So far, this has been such an amazing experience and I haven’t even run the actual half marathon yet 😜 Yesterday was a long day of approx 9 hours of flying 😐 but worth it to join 10,000 other runners in this experience! Rain is on the radar for tomorrow morning so I’m hoping I can stay warm.
I’m a runner, but you’d better believe I lift!! Why lift? -> to be a more well-rounded & versatile athlete -> to protect my bones, which were greatly compromised during my almost-decade of ED -> to be truly strong & feel like a total BA (being strong & fast gives me confidence to look every man I pass by dead in the eyes, a tactic of pre-self-defense I’ve learned... I want them to see, “Don’t F with me” in my eyes! 💪🏽 And if they do, I not only have pepper spray, but I also have my own strength) -> to get overall muscle tone, which isn’t a terrible thing at all 😉 -> to be strong on trails, which require full body efforts a lot of the time! . Do you lift at all? If so, why? If not, why not? (E.g. My reason used to be hating the gym + not feeling confident to know what to do!)
Those aren't the friends you're looking for... #RunEatRepeat
