What a beautiful Saturday here in Central NY! I enjoyed a run using the Charity Miles app followed by yard work. So blessed with beautiful weather!! Thank you to everyone for the prayers and messages this week. I feel so blessed to have such support. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! #standup2cancer #su2c #cancersucks #imagineaworldwithoutcancer #blessed #gratitude #run #runners #running #ilovetorun #runnergirl #fitfam #fitmom #fitness #runitfast #runchat #womenrunning #inspiringwomenrunners #inspireothers #marathon #marathontraining #charitymiles
Happy Friday Everyone!! Today was stressful. Last night I prayed and talked things over with my husband and I came in prepared to make my decision for work. I decided that it was in my familyโ€™s best interest if I declined the relocation offer. The future is unknown but I know that was the right decision so time to see what unfolds. To deal with the stress I decided I needed to go for a run ๐Ÿ˜Š I am so happy to have my running- it maintains my sanity ๐Ÿ˜Š I wish everyone a wonderful weekend #wonderwoman #runningismytherapy #weareingodshands #run #runningcommunity #runnersofinstagram #runners #running #runchat #runhappy #runnergirl #longrun #womenrunning #inspiringothers #fitness #fitfam #marathon #marathonrunner #marathontraining #workoutsnap
Today is my easy run day and I also decided it was a good idea to give my feet some TLC. I canโ€™t believe I ran early and I am glad I did because it allowed me time for a massage. And I really felt that I need to take care of myself today. Friends, I am really stressed out this week. I have returned to work and there is a pile of issues to address there but there is a big one on the top and that is a big decision I need to make by Friday related to work. I have prayed about this for months and I know the right decision but I am nervous of the unknowns that come with it. And Iโ€™m sad. I came back to work and started to hear everyone elseโ€™s decisions and the reality that 2019 will be a year of significant change (regardless of my personal path) has begun to really set in. Some have decided to relocate and some have decided to not accept the relocation and find new employment. Regardless, the goodbyes have begun. Some of these people I have known for 21 years and by January we will have all gone our separate ways. So lots of stress, lots of tears and praying that God has great things in store for 2019. * I wish all of you a very happy Wednesday and I want to thank you friends for listening. * And I want to thank @ulissy_lee for making my day. I am so grateful to you and many of the friends Iโ€™ve met here for being so supportive. I hope that I continue to inspire you because your message today inspired and uplifted me. ๐Ÿค— #changeiscoming #sadgoodbyeshavestarted #mylifeisingodshands #takecareofmindbodysoul #reflexology #massage #takecareofyourself #run #running #runningcommunity #fitfab #fitness #runnersofinstagram #training #marathon #marathontraining
Happy Tuesday everyone! Iโ€™m not kidding, today was tough. My body is tired. Today was a scheduled speed day. I had to make a choice and I decided tired or not keep to the schedule. Iโ€™m so happy I did. Now tomorrow can be an easy run ๐Ÿ˜‰ I hope you all have a great day!! #run #runchat #runners #running #runningcommunity #runnersofinstagram #instarun #runitfast #runhappy #fitmom #fitbit #fitness #training #fitfam #marathon #marathontraining #womenrunning #TheseMothersCanrun
How do you tackle jetlag? I say the answer is getting up at 6am and starting my routine. As a bonus, make it a 2 workout day. I enjoyed getting my easy 10K run in and seeing everyone at @crossfitsyracuse today. Call me crazy but 2 workouts today gave me energy and made me feel good and that is exactly what I needed coming back to work after a 2 week vacation! Happy Monday everyone! #mondaymotivation #crossfit #wod #boxjumps #kettlebells #powerclean #womenrunning #running #run #instarunners #runs #runnerslife #runhappy #runitfast #runchat #runnersofinstagram #happyrunner #runnerscommunity #fitness #fit #fitfam #fitnessmotivation #marathontraining #marathon #workoutsnap
We got home at 12:30am and everyone got a good nights sleep. It feels good to be home, see our cats and sleep in our own bed. I am so thankful for our successful family road trip and to be home safe and sound. Todayโ€™s run was fun and felt great as my longest since leaving for vacation. #timetogetbacktoroutine #gratitude #homesweethome #running #run #runner #instarunners #runs #runnersworld #runnerslife #runchat #runitfast #runhappy #happyrunner #runnerscommunity #exercise #cardio #fitness #fit #fitfam #runnersofinstagram #runningcommunity #fitnessmotivation #marathon #marathonmom #marathontraining #workoutsnap
Tomorrow we head home from our beautiful dream vacation. We have seen some beautiful parts of the the West Coast as well as some historical places. Last night was for the kids as we spent yesterday at Disneyland. This morning I was exhausted but I got my run in. Today I was thinking about how grateful I am we could have this time together as a family and I thought about some of my friends and family at home struggling with things. This run is dedicated to everyone touched by cancer. Imagine a day without cancer. #su2c #standup2cancer #cancersucks #gratitude #blessedbeyondwords #familyvacation #familytime #run #runchat #runners #running #runitfast #fitmom #fitgirl #fitbit #fitness #runningcommunity #runnersofinstagram #marathon #marathontraining #marathonmom #motherof3
I enjoyed my longest run while on vacation today. I canโ€™t believe how quickly time has gone by and that I only have a few days left of vacation. Beautiful run in beautiful Santa Monica. Time to go to the beach! #runningwhilevacationing #roadtrip #familyvacation #santamonicabeach #travel #blessedbeyondwords #motherof3 #run #runchat #runners #runitfast #running #runnergirl #fitmom #fitness #fitgirl #marathon #marathonmom #marathontraining #runningcommunity #runnersofinstagram
Enjoyed 5 miles of hiking among the Giant Sequoia Trees today with the family. It is unbelievable how huge these trees are as well as how old they are. Hiking today was so peaceful. #godscreation #nofilterneeded #experiencinggodscreation #blessedbeyondwords #gratitude #sequoianationalpark #generalshermantree #gianttree #beautiful #majestic #hiking #hike #familyvacation #travel #fitfam #theadventurecontinues #roadtrip #makingmemories
My everything โค๏ธ Two amazing days with spotty at best cellphone/WiFI access in beautiful Yosemite National Park. How many bucket list items can you check off in one road trip? I donโ€™t know but this trip is one big dream come true. The kids loved the experience of the mule ride in the trails of Yosemite and Glacier Point was simply amazing. So blessed to have this time with my family. #blessedbeyondwords #gratitude #makingmemories #motherof3 #familyvacation #roadtrip #yosemite #yosemitenationalpark #muleride #beautifulnature #travel #hiking
Today was simply AMAZING and a bucket list item. Iโ€™m tired but it is worth every bit of the 33,000 Fitbit steps! The Grand Canyon is breathtaking and we completed a lot of hiking including down into the Canyon. The whole family handled the hiking like champs! #fitfam #hiking #exercise #familyvacation #gratitude #breathtaking #grandcanyon #motherof3 #dreamvacation #blessed
Today is Day 2 of a family vacation that I have dreamed of giving my family for many years. My posts may be less during this time but I will add to my IG story if you wish to follow. Words cannot describe how I feel tonight โ€” as I am blessed beyond words. My kids described it often very simply as .. โ€œbeautiful.โ€ Sedona was everything I dreamed it would be and more. We enjoyed a nature hike. We saw the mule deer and javelinas. I have read about the javelina thanks to @puntiff and today we saw one on the trails with our very own eyes. We enjoyed the Chapel of Holy Cross and an off road jeep tour which gave us additional views of the red rock and a deeper understanding of the vortexes. I canโ€™t believe this is only day 2....๐Ÿ™ #blessesbeyondwords #makingmemories #roadtrip #educationthroughexperience #sedona #familytime #familyvacation #nature #godisgood #gratitude
Today is an exciting day for me. My 14 year old son and I ran a 10K today during his sisters soccer practice. This was the farthest he has ever run (previous longest was 5K) and he did it without stopping! I am so proud of Kieran. And I am so grateful that I was able to help my son complete something he never imagined being able to do. #gratitude #motherof3 #motivatingouryouth #ilovemyson #10k #goals #runwithmyson #run #runchat #runitfast #running #runners #runningmom #fitness #fitfam #familythatrunstogether #runningcommunity #instarun #runnersofinstagram #marathonmom #training
Happy Monday everyone! I hope your week has started off well! I know I have a busy week as we prepare for a special vacation. We marked an item off my bucket list this weekend. Flights were canceled but we were able to at least get tethered balloon ride (that counts in my mind) which gave me a taste of what a balloon ride would be like. โค๏ธ So on this Monday I want to leave everyone with this thought- reach for the sky when it comes to your dreams. Write your dreams/goals down and chase them. Somethings take longer to achieve but never give up trying. That chase for the dream and the achieving of those dreams- that is living life. ๐Ÿ˜Š Dream Big Achieve Repeat #goals #mondaymotivation #dream #dreambig #livelifetothefullest #godisgood #gratitude #balloonride #balloons
Happy Friday everyone! I hope you all had a great week! I feel so grateful for a beautiful day. I have a lot of work to do before we go on vacation but I managed to get 2 workouts done today. I got a good 8.5 mile run in AND I went to #crossfitsyracuse It felt good to be there and I absolutely loved the workout (it included hill runs ๐Ÿ˜€) But what I really enjoyed today was that todayโ€™s WOD included double unders, which frustrate the heck out of me and I generally avoid doing because I would rather jump rope 5 times singles than do the programmed number of double unders. TRUTH. Well, I walked in today and used the WOD to work on those double unders. I canโ€™t tell you how good it feels that I did that! I wish everyone a wonderful weekend!! #youcanteachthisolddognewtricks #2workouts #crossfit #exercise #wod #doubleunders #run #hillrunning #runner #longrun #runchat #runners #running #crossfitrunning #fitmom #fitgirl #fitfam #fitness #runnergirl #marathon #marathonmom #marathonrunner #marathontraining #runitfast #runningcommunity #instarun #runnersofinstagram #workoutsnap
Happy Wednesday everyone! Today is a beautiful day in Syracuse and I managed to get a run in during my kids soccer practice. Happy to use #charitymiles to dedicate my run to StandUp2Cancer!

Hello friends! It is a beautiful day in Upstate NY and a big day for my baby girl. She had her moving up ceremony at school. 5th grade and Middle School here we come. I am thrilled for her but it is tough. Her every accomplishment feels like the end of something as she is my youngest. ๐Ÿ˜ญ I deal with emotional stress by going for my run. Today was speed day and it was much more difficult because of the stress and getting woken up at 1am to a child having nightmares. ๐Ÿ˜ด Friends, today was tough and todayโ€™s run was not perfect but I got it done and that is really all that matters. ๐Ÿ˜€ Sound familiar? I hope so because if there is anything you have learned about me, I like to be consistent. Perfect ... no ... but I got it done- a win for my physical and emotional health. #consistencyiskey #ilovetorun #runningismytherapy #running #run #runner #instarunners #runs #runnersworld #runnerslife #runhappy #runitfast #runhappy #happyrunner #runnerscommunity #exercise #cardio #fitness #fit #fitfam #runchat #fitnessmotivation #marathon #marathonmom #marathontraining #runnergirl #womenrunning #workoutsnap
