Toss-back Tuesday!? This deserves it!.
Last THURSDAY was magical. I ran a 6mi tempo (8:12, 8:04, 7:57, 8:15, 8:07, 8:20) and then joined @heartbreakrunco
for a 1mi fundraiser race called the #adriannestrongmile
in honor of @adriannehaslet
- and this girl is so strong!.
Her running journey began at the Boston Marathon finish line during the 2013 bombings and it now continues across the world to not only bring prosthetics to children in need but to also inspire people to not let mobility (or really anything) define their limits.
Was so honored to chat with her during our warm-up and meet an awesome new running buddy @yo_adriennnnnne
here too. At that point, I was unsure if I was actually going to race the event; but, once we lined up, I knew I would give nothing less than everything I had! Thanks @tuanh89
and everyone else for the encouragement! Ran a 6:47 - the fastest full mile I've run since last September (PR 6:40, so far) Thought I was going to die... then was perfectly fine after. Aka lessons learned! 😂🎉🏃♀️.
It's a GIFT to be able to run and I hope I can share that with YOU like this event did for me!.
Definitely look forward to training more with these amazing girls and the rest of our #heartbreakers
