Yesterday’s run! Split between running 1.5mi uphill, 1.5mi back down, and then 2mi on a separate trail after being warned about car break-ins at the first trailhead! Pace and effort were all over the place throughout, but it all felt good!
Gratitude changes everything. What are you thankful for today?💕
It’s Thanksgiving week, y’all - and my heart feels full💙
My first half marathon completed!! Over 20 years ago my older sister Candace (Madame) was diagnosed with leukemia (AML) and became a patient at Children's Hospital. I was ALWAYS at the hospital with her and got to meet a lot of really great people from staff to kids! While she may be gone physically, she will always be with me. 😇🤗 #madamemadeadifference
Let me tell you something, those kids have something inside of them that EVERYONE should strive to attain...RESILIENCE. Resilience is your "bounce back", resilience is your attitude, it's how you overcome adversity, it's what separates the "Doers" from the "Ima's".😅 .
WHAT'S AN IMA? : "Ima start on Monday" "Ima do it later". "I can't bc I work too late", "I'm too big to do that", "I'll never be able to do that", "I'm too old", " I hurt my self, I can't", "I wish I could..." (yes, they're IMA's too...and probably couch potatoes) DON'T BE AN IMA!! #nojudgement
🤫 (strive for "I AM" instead😊)
And if you revel in science... studies show that high resiliency can lead to greater life satisfaction. 🤓 😋 So can we all just go on and live our best lives😁

Which one are you most excited about? 🍷 or 🔥?
Yesterday I completed my 3rd half marathon with my best time to date! It was not easy, but there’s no better feeling than crossing the finish line and achieving what you set out to achieve.
Running is a crazy experience. You hit the highest highs and the lowest lows. It definitely challenges you physically, but probably challenges you even more mentally. From those hills that seem like they last forever to running through the woods in the middle of fall, in the end you’re able to use the body God gave you to accomplish your goal.
Set goals, work toward them, and go out & accomplish them!

Sunday’s should come with a pause button ♥️♥️♥️ - late workout...quick 20 min run and a virtual CxWorX class ⭐️
Finally after 4years of mentally preparing for a half marathon, I finally crossed the finish line! Thanks to @rjay1_
for getting me prepared physically. I appreciate you and couldn't have had a better running partner. #norfolkharborhalf #thirteenpointone
There are some days I will NEVER forget, this is definitely one of them! Walt Ware is now a “Half-Marathoner”! 🏃🏽♂️ I had the joy (🤣) of watching him train, prepare and cross that finish line of his first half marathon! 🏁 On the same day I had the privilege of running this half with Dane (his second)! It was simply one of the best days of my life! 💙 Many special memories and a lifetime of happiness topped off with medals for all!🏅This was Dwain’s third half and he set a new PR!💥God is so good! ✝️

Best part of the race: running inside Tropicana stadium - where the Tampa Bay Rays play. I was totally fangirling the whole time, but IDGAF. Little things make me happy.
This is from the Big River Crossing 5K I ran with my friends @wellhousefitness
a couple of weeks ago. I clocked my best time as far as miles go running the first one in 8:41, the second one in 8:23, and the last mile in 7:48. We had a really good race and it was a great way to warm up for my next race...the St. Jude Half-Marathon coming up on Dec 1st. I’m fundraising for St. Jude this year and I am two-thirds of the way to my goal of $1,500. If you would like to support my run and help the kids of St. Jude, the link is in my bio on my home page...any amount would be greatly appreciated. 🏃🏼♂️🏃🏼♂️🏃🏼♂️#stjudeheroes #halfmarathon #thirteenpointone #5k10khalf
Woof. That felt like traaaash. The cold weather has my head feeling like the cabin of airplane...pressurized! BUT, I did something, which is better than nothing. Oh, and don’t ask me about the math on my duration/average pace...that’s all the Apple watch’s doing! Ha!
Anyone else getting hit by a snow/sleet storm?? ❄️
13.1 and done 🙌🏼 First ever half marathon (same for Janera and Teddy) and it was GREAT! So proud of our little run group for training hard and finishing strong. On to the next one 🤔
The Philly FD were the EMTs who were first on scene 11 months ago when I smashed my wrists on melted snow that wasn’t cleaned up at Suburban Station. They were remarkably gentle with me, still in shock and with an arm broken so badly you could see the break even through my winter coat. When they loaded me in the ambulance and took my vitals they asked if I was a runner - my resting pulse is usually about 56- and I thought back on that a lot over those first couple months of recovery. I was in so much pain, for so long, doing anything - even a walk - hurt my arm. So the thought of ever running another half marathon was out of the question. But today, really unprepared (I missed a bunch of training bc I work 3 jobs to make up for the debt from missing work from the injury) I did that thing that seemed impossible. And guess who was at the finish line? Thanks Philly FD, you guys are heroes. #philadelphiafiredepartment @phillyfiredept #runner #thirteenpointone #philadelphiamarathon #philadelphiahalfmarathon
Clermont clay hills for breakfast with the run squad! Had a blast - great way to start the weekend and celebrating Shelly’s half birthday!💕
Coastline 13.1 on deck in the morning at @laceuprunning
Palos Verdes! Running with the Pacific in sight, despite endless rolling hills, is pretty much the best way to start a Saturday morning! ☀️ Who’s running tomorrow?
