8 minute 5k to start the day with @elsaisfit
🐾 — now I am off to @jabzvoorhees
for a quick session before work.
1. Find time — you either find time or find excuses.
2. I have dreams so big — I am chasing them all because we only get one life.
3. Life is too short to take any day for granted.
4. Find what gets you out of bed in the morning and drown your life in it.
Happy Monday — don’t dread Monday’s .. celebrate them — remember how lucky you are to have another Monday.
M E D A L M O N D A Y 🏅 ( Niet de mijne). Maar van deze knapperd ( swipe voor volgende foto)! Mega mega trots op mijn lief! 1:59 en een klets 👊. ❤️Love you @stef_timex
en mega trots!
It is better to take many small steps in the right direction than to make a great leap forward only to stumble backward.
This half marathon training is keeping me honest. 😝 Sent myself home early(ish) from a night out with the girls and was able to wake up and get in a little 4 miler along the Santa Monica beachfront this morning. 🙌
One week to go!
What a beautiful day for a race! This weekend and everything leading up to this race did not go as planned but we managed to have a great run and pull off a half marathon personal record- 1:50:44. Huge shout out to
for being an absolute trooper and running in Toms (yes the flat canvas shoes) because she accidentally left her shoes ready to go for the race on her stairs (so she wouldn’t forget them). Hearing “go swifts” throughout the race was so much fun! I am beyond happy with how we did today despite all of the “things” and all of those HILLS. Proof that all the training really pays off. Thank you @kourtneythebakerswife
for always supporting me, attempting to deliver shoes, cheering us across the finish line, and delivering us coffee at the finish! 💕🏃🏼♀️💕 #halfmarathon #spokanehalf #runspokane #thirteenpointone #personalrecord #beautifulday #runnergirls #pr #allthehills
I am blown away by my girls!! Let me start by saying that my KINDERGARTEN daughter legit beat me in a mile race today. True story. 🏃🏻♀️
Emma not only killed it in her quarter mile race, coming in first place today and second overall for the season, but she ran the parent mile “with” me and BEAT me. And believe me when I say, I was trying. I kept thinking she’d gas out and she never did! Emma is such a natural runner. She makes it look easy and effortless. I was honestly more out of breath than she was at the end. Not sure what all of this says about me, but it sure says a lot about her! I am beyond proud.
And Addy had an AMAZING season as well, coming in 2nd place today and 2nd overall for her half mile race for the season. She too ran the parent mile with me and had a bit of a blow to the ego witnessing her little sister beat her. There were a few tears at the end, but I am SO proud of Addy because she finished strong, DIDN’T quit, and pulled herself together pretty quickly and was happy for Emma. 🏃🏻♀️
And then theres Izzy. Poor thing was the only Hetrick that didn’t get a trophy and she wasn’t shy about expressing her displeasure. She learned a tough life lesson today that not everyone wins. But Izzy had an awesome season with her bestie, and her look of determination while she’s running can’t be beat 😂. 🏃🏻♀️
Congrats to my three girls and ALL of the kiddos on a stellar running season. We’ll see you in the spring!! 🏃🏻♀️
This smile is a result of a day filled with all of my favorite things; family, friendship and community! We got outside, enjoyed this gorgeous day, and helped spread the gift of health & wellness with kids and adults of all ages at #smyrnastreetsalive
! I absolutely love all that this event stands for and look forward to the next one! 🏃🏻♀️ 🚲 .
Today also reminded me that our children are watching our every move. Active adults=active kids. It is absolutely free to get outside with your family, get some fresh air, and get moving! .
Last night in Cleveland before we head back to the mitten! So naturally I ended it at Olive Garden with @am_smith3013
- what a sweet friend I’ve found in you💓
I knew I missed Cleveland. But now that I’m here I’m just like 😭 all the feels. Miss this place. Miss these people. All I know is I’ll be back, and hopefully very soon.
Lots of love in this photo 🐾

Jan 👉 NOW! Just completed a recharge post race and I’m pumped to get back in my running this week!
So excited to get several ladies started in a Free 7 day group to get healthy!
It starts with fear
It starts with doubt
It starts with struggles
Are you ready to feel better and do something different?
No gym fees
No gas $
No more racing to a schedule
Let’s end the year strong instead of feeling defeated when the new year starts! Holidays and food pushers are hard but let’s lock arms and do this together 💪
Drop a ❤️ below and I’ll send you the deets..
Don’t you think you are worth it? I do! Rooting for you 💋
Today was a day I did not give up. I kept at it and finished, in less time than I thought too. We’ll see how I’m feeling tomorrow, but for now I’m very happy I stuck with it. And I’m thankful for my friend, @rainbows4runners
who was by my side the whole way.
Happy Sunday! Originally I was going to run the full, but life happened this summer and I decided I could manage to keep my fitness for a half marathon instead, so I downgraded. It was an awesome weekend girl trip, and I went into it thinking I might be able to PR, but at mile 6 my stomach had other plans🤦🏻♀️💩😫 Sorry, TMI, but this is my runner account, so Runner’s know what I’m talking about 😜 Anyway, I tried to make up for my time loss in the potty, but just missed a PR by 11 seconds. Despite just missing a PR, I had an amazing race and experience with my friends. I still managed to snag 5 Overall in women and first in my age group😎👍We had a ton of local runners representing, and it was perfect running weather! So no more complaining from me 😂 #runnersmakethebestfriends #runningbesties #runrevel #runrevelbigbear #pavementtherapy #fitmoms #runnergirls
I had plenty of reasons this week to not get some miles on these legs, but I did it anyway. I’m hoping for some kind of miraculous 20-degree drop in the temps for next weekend’s 10 miler but let’s face it, Florida gives zero Fs about this thing we call “fall.”
Beautiful Fall Run 🍁
It’s been 2 weeks since my marathon and my legs felt really good today, but my hands felt empty since my mid week runs I’ve been bringing my pup with me.
I only looked at my watch once to figure out how much further I had to decide on a route to finish up. It’s been nice to have my legs feel like this and have a pace like this. After having struggles with getting miles in for marathon training, it’s nice to run just to run not with any official training. I still have a goal to finish 2018 with 1000 miles and I’m still on track to reach that while still fitting in 4 days of strength training.
It’s fall y’all! Waiting for the Snohomish River Run runners to break through the fog.
