Happy Monday Everyone! It is a travel week for me so I started the day early with a 70 minute run and 30 burpees. The Burpee Challenge is almost complete. Katherine continues to impress me and I’m so happy that we decided to do this together. She learned a new exercise. Believe me she did. It was funny/awkward watching her the first week. And now she can do 20 quick burpees with great form! I have a good friend to thank for inspiring me to join her in this challenge. Thank you @dryheatwriter This experience reminds me of when I was little and my Dad and I would do his exercise tapes together. Moms, Dads... they are watching. As you make healthy choices for yourself do not forget to invite your kids. They may deny you over and over but when they say yesβ€” stay committed. It is worth it πŸ’― #motherof3 #mondaymotivation #mondayinspiration #ilovemydaughter #burpees #burpeechallenge #crossfit #fitfam #fitness #exercise #runningmotivation #running #fitnessmotivation #instarunners #runnergirl #motherrunner #run #runningmotivation #running #womenrunning #inspiringwomenrunners #runnersofinstagram #runningcommunity #fitgirl #fitness #fitnessmotivation #marathon #marathontraining
Happy Weekend Everyone! I noticed something... I was tired! Fortunately today I got some rest before I need to travel again all next week. I have had very little desire to get a long run in this weekend so I decided that back to back 75 minute runs will have to do. If you have followed me even a little bit you will have noticed that I run nearly every day. That makes moments like this easier for me. Body is tired so I just back off on the ideal plan and just focus on keeping on running. πŸˆπŸˆπŸˆπŸ™πŸ™πŸ™ An update from last week. The young man that was injured required heart surgery but he will be ok. It could have gone very bad but fortunately God had other plans and the incident happened under ideal conditions. As a mother of soccer and football players it is increasingly hard for me to attend their games. Those close to me will have noticed something about me. The LOUDEST pro/college football spectator has become the QUIETEST spectator as a mother on the sideline. But friends, I know God wanted myself, my kids and the school there that day. It scared me but it did remind me that God is always present. #godisgood #motherof3 #womenrunning #inspiringwomenrunners #running #run #runner #instarunners #runnersofinstagram #runnersworld #runnerslife #runhappy #runitfast #runnergirl #happyrunner #runnerscommunity #exercise #cardio #fitness #fit #fitfam #fitnessmotivation #workoutsnap
Happy Tuesday everyone. I started my day early so that all my breaks today could be active ones. It is a beautiful day before the chilly weather comes and I’ve enjoyed it! The result is a two workout day! I had a tough but fun WOD at #crossfitsyracuse today followed by an afternoon 60 minute run. As you will see I got a ton of burpees in- 60 plus the warm up. 🀣🀣🀣 + 20 min WOD 250m run holding 10# plate 20 burpees + box jump 250m run X 3 with 2 minute rest in between I hope everyone has a wonderful day. Take time to enjoy the final days of summer. 🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞 #burpees #burpeechallenge #wod #crossfit #boxjumps #running #run #runner #instarunners #inspiringwomenrunners #runnersworld #runnerslife #runnergirl #womenrunning #runitfast #runhappy #happyrunner #runnerscommunity #exercise #cardio #fitness #fit #fitfam #fitnessmotivation #marathon #workoutsnap
Happy Monday everyone. I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. I have 4 weeks of busy coming up at work but at least I’m working πŸ˜‰ I am hoping for a little less crazy to be honest. I figured I better get a hard workout in so the rest of the week can be easyπŸ˜‰ warm up, speed workout and cool down done in 60 minutes βœ… then some burpees βœ… Katherine is staying strong on our Burpee Challenge and I’m really excited that we are over half done. It’s inspiring to watch her at age 10 take on the challenge. πŸŽ‰ I wish you all a great week! #burpees #burpeechallenge #mydaughterinspiresme #running #run #runner #instarunners #runnergirl #runnersworld #runnerslife #womenrunning #inspiringwomenrunners #runitfast #runhappy #happyrunner #runnerscommunity #exercise #cardio #fitness #fit #fitfam #fitnessmotivation #workoutsnap
Life can change is a second. Last night was one of the scariest things I’ve experienced with my kids. Football, school and faith can be places we describe as FAMILY. Last night our family experienced a serious injury on the field of a fellow teammate, classmate - FAMILY. My oldest was dressed and on sideline and the other two kids were with me spectating. I wasn’t even planning to be at this game as I was running around watching my daughter’s games. But I ended up there. Today I am grateful I was there. The school staff, team, fans were amazing and we all prayed and cried together on that sideline. Life can change in an instant. Surround yourself with those that will help you navigate through life. Thank you for listening. What a crazy week! πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™ #motherof3 #family #godisgood #brothers #football #highschoolfootball
Hello everyone!! Long postβ€”β€” I have been super busy and everything has felt very chaotic. Sometimes it amazes me how I get everything done in a day and I admit my life can consume my time and energy sometimes. I am so fortunate to have completed my run and get my burpees in. I am enjoying my Burpee Challenge and especially that Katherine is staying strong with me. I’ve been so busy that this is my first opportunity to let everyone know that I am so happy for all those who BQ’d and have started registering for the Boston Marathon. You have been in my thoughts. Several have asked about my plans for Boston Marathon next year. My day for registering was Wednesday. I remember my first BQ. The decision to apply was an easy Yes. Each subsequent BQ has not been that easy. Every no decision left me questioning and feeling like I was missing out. Every yes decision resulted in logistics nightmares for this Mother of 3 - including figuring out Easter with race day being the next day. Let me tell you without a doubt that Boston is my favorite race of all time. It is special. I am full of gratitude that I BQ’d with my first marathon and continue to have opportunities to run in this amazing marathon. I am fully aware of the struggles people make to get to that starting line. The unknowns of next year consistently flood my mind and with that I am not mentally in a position to be committed to running Boston next year. I have thought about registering so I have my spot in case by next year my thoughts change but that is not fair to those who are on the bubble. So next year I will be at home listening online and cheering you all on. I really love the Boston Marathon- every time the race has taught me something about myself and the strength of the human spirit. πŸ’™πŸ’›#bostonstrong #bostonmarathon #womenrunning #inspiringwomenrunners #running #run #runner #instarunners #runs #runnersworld #runnerslife #runhappy #runitfast #marathon #happyrunner #runnerscommunity #exercise #cardio #fitness #fit #fitfam #fitnessmotivation #workoutsnap
Happy Monday Everyone!! What a way to start the week- Did you see the Green Bay Packers game last night??? Friends, I must warn you all that my brain is all over the place the past week. So many things to share but I want to leave everyone with this today. Life is difficult. Everyone has their story. You are never alone if you don’t want to be. Life is a roller coaster ride and that is part of what makes life so amazing...feeling the lows with the highs. Happiness (and success) on this roller coaster ride is often contributed to one’s mindset. Make no mistake, I am dealing with difficult things but I choose to focus on the positive. Nothing good can come from negativity. Try to not linger there and focus instead on the positive. *** Today’s positive 1. Amazing Packer win 2. Katherine is doing amazing on her running and burpees 3. My daughter said she enjoys having me work from home. 4. We made someone’s day today ... and many made my day 5. I got a great run in today and am blessed to have the gift of running #mondaymotivation #mindset #choosehappiness #burpees #burpeechallenge #consistencyiskey #womenrunning #inspiringwomenrunners #running #run #runner #instarunners #runchat #runnersworld #runnerslife #runhappy #runitfast #training #happyrunner #runnerscommunity #exercise #cardio #fitness #fit #fitfam #fitnessmotivation #workoutsnap
It was a long week and my Fitbit sleep shows how badly I needed 8 hours sleep. We got a lot of progress on our deck but looks like 2nd cost will have to wait until next weekend. This is the first full week of routine- after school activities, homework and lunches. I hope it goes smoothly 🀞 I got a run in and Katherine and I both completed our Burpee Challenge for the day. I am so proud of Katherine. She is really embracing this challenge!! Tonight is the Packers Season opener against the Bears. Should be a great game. I’m of course cheering for a Packer Win😊#gopackgo #packerowner #burpees #burpeechallenge #running #run #runner #instarunners #inspiringwomenrunners #runnersworld #runnerslife #womenrunning #runitfast #runhappy #happyrunner #runnerscommunity #runnergirl #exercise #cardio #fitness #fit #fitfam #fitnessmotivation #workoutsnap
Today started off early and is ending late. Somehow I managed to get a full days work in, my workout and get kids to each of their after school activities. My middle son was so worried that he would have no school supplies for tomorrow as he never saw me go shopping. Little did he know I’ve been school supplies shopping all summer. Today I told him to sit down and I opened a closet and asked him to take items off the list and put into his bag. He was amazed. I just laughed and thought as a mom of the Kathie Lee / Hoda @todayshow and thought... yes, how do we mom’s do it day after day! 😊 I am looking forward to the weekend. I hope you all had a great day!! #burpees #burpeechallenge #motherof3 #running #run #runner #instarunners #womenrunning #inspiringwomenrunners #runnersworld #runnerslife #runchat #runitfast #runhappy #happyrunner #runnersofinstagram #runnerscommunity #exercise #cardio #fitness #fit #fitfam #fitnessmotivation #marathontraining #marathon #workoutsnap
Hello friends. This is the first week of school and I can’t tell you how many times I asked out loud β€œHow am I supposed to stay employed and run my kids everywhere they need to go” But this sunset... God sure painted a beautiful sky for me to enjoy. I did find time to get a run in and Katherine and I are staying strong on the 30 day Burpee Challenge. I guess I’ll just continue to take it one day at a time 😊 #burpees #burpeechallenge #running #run #runner #instarunners #womenrunning #runnersworld #marathontraining #marathon #runnerslife #runhappy #runitfast #runchat #happyrunner #runnerscommunity #runnersofinstagram #exercise #cardio #fitness #fit #fitfam #fitnessmotivation #inspiringwomenrunners #workoutsnap
Happy Labor Day! We had planned to work around the house all day but we changed our minds. Last minute we are going out to the New York State Fair. I got an early 7 mile run in and 100 kettlebell swings. Katherine has joined me on the 30 day Burpee Challenge. There is nothing more exciting as a mother than encouraging your kids to complete a new goal. I’ll keep you updated but thus far she is going strong! Tonight is the return of college football in our house. Go Hokies! I hope everyone is able to enjoy some family time!! #motherof3 #family #goals #burpeechallenge #burpees #virginiatech #football #running #womenrunning #inspiringwomenrunners #run #runner #instarunners #runnergirl #runnersworld #runnerslife #runchat #runitfast #runhappy #happyrunner #runnerscommunity #exercise #cardio #fitness #fit #fitfam #fitnessmotivation #mondaymotivation #workoutsnap
Happy Saturday everyone! It feels like it has been a long day and we are not done yet. We have a lot to do this holiday weekend and so I had to be up early in order to get a workout in. I ran an easy 5 miles and I started a 30 day burpee challenge with my friend @dryheatwriter I thought she was crazy but I am all in because there are only 2 people that have gotten me to do burpees ever and that is the coach staff @crossfitsyracuse during a WOD and now my friend Carolinne. No matter how much I hate burpees, I will always do burpees for a friend. This will be a tough 30 days but I plan to stick to it! **Note- the best way to stick to something that is hard is to have your friends hold you accountable. Thank you IG Friends 😊 Rest Break over... now back to list of work this weekend... kids sport activities, car searching, DIY basketball hoop and the deck. Making progress even if it is slow progress. #motherof3 #burpeechallenge #burpees #friendsinspiringfriends #friends #run #running #runner #inspiringwomenrunners #womenrunning #runnergirl #fit #fitness #fitgirl #fitnessmotivation #runitfast #runchat #runningcommunity #igrunners #runnersofinstagram #marathontraining #marathon
Thank God it is Friday! It has been a long week and I’m exhausted. It’s been a roller coaster kind of week.

Happy Tuesday everyone! Today was a beautiful summer day in Syracuse. I heard a lot of people complaining about the heat and all I was thinking was how I really hoped I would get a chance to enjoy a run outside today. Amazing how different one can view the weather! Several great things happened today but I have to say that the best thing was when my 10 year old daughter said she was ok with me running outside today as long as I agreed to run with my phone. This is huge because she has not wanted me to run outside since she heard the news about Mollie. I told her that all week I’m dedicating each run to #milesformollie and that I really wanted to run the neighborhood again. Katherine being ok again with me running outside is a huge win. I don’t want her living life in fear. Facing our fears and things that make us uncomfortable is what makes us stronger. πŸ’›πŸ’™πŸ’›πŸ’™πŸ’›πŸ’™πŸ’›πŸ’™ #motherof3 #ilovemydaughter #runningcommunity #running #run #runner #instarunners #womenempowerment #runnersworld #runnerslife #runchat #runitfast #runhappy #happyrunner #runnerscommunity #exercise #cardio #fitness #fit #fitfam #womenrunning #inspiringwomenrunners #fitnessmotivation #marathon #marathontraining #workoutsnap #charitymiles
Happy Monday everyone! I have been feeling a little behind lately and so if I am slow to respond I want everyone to know that I’m drowning in life right now and I promise to catch up. I have no idea how we are getting things done lately. I’m writing this post while in the parent pickup lane for football. And I know that my last 4 months at work will fly by as I am drowning there too. I wanted to run outside but it caused anxiety with my daughter so I ran on treadmill again today. It actually let me get some things done during my run so I think it was a blessing. Run inside or outside this run was still dedicated as #milesformollie I hope everyone has a blessed Monday and a beautiful week. Thank you for listening to my stresses and for being part of my Monday πŸ˜ŠπŸ’™πŸ’› #running #run #runner #motherof3 #instarunners #mondaymotivation #runnersworld #womenrunning #inspiringwomenrunners #runnerslife #runhappy #runitfast #runchat #happyrunner #runnerscommunity #exercise #cardio #fitness #fit #fitfam #fitnessmotivation #workoutsnap #marathon #marathontraining
Happy Wednesday everyone!!! Today I scheduled myself a two workout day and it felt great!! I completed a WOD of squats and kettlebells. This is a favorite workout of mine that only takes 20 minutes. 1 minute of 25 squats followed by kettlebell swings until end of time 1 minute rest X 10 I then recovered with an easy 60 minute run. Curious?? Give the workout a try and let me know what you think πŸ‘ I hope everyone is doing well. I’m thankful for a great workout and I got 1 kid ready for school today. I only have 2 to go. πŸ‘πŸ‘ #doubleworkout #crossfit #crossfitter #kettlebell #squats #wod #womenrunning #inspiringwomen #run #running #runnergirl #runningcommunity #instarun #runnersofinstagram #runchat #marathon #marathontraining #inspiringwomenrunners #exercise #cardio #fitness #fit #fitfam #fitnessmotivation #workoutsnap
Happy Monday everyone. Today was a busy day but a day filled with gratitude. ▢️I didn’t have the time to do the workout I wanted but I got a run in. ▢️I can’t see a day in the near future that I can make it to a Crossfit workout- but at least I am healthy and have a gym in my house. ▢️I feel so busy that I fear not spending enough time with the kids but I learned today that the time I spent recently has left a positive impression on them. ▢️Feel stressed as next year we lose the wonderful insurance through my company but at least the husband has his job and our family is overall very healthy ▢️ fear the unknown but know God is with us on the journey positive mindset- one of gratitude πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’› #run #running #runningmotivation #mindset is everything #godisgood #runnergirl #runningcommunity #instarun #runchat #womenrunning #runnersofinstagram #inspiration #motivationmonday #inspiringwomen #marathontraining #marathon #cardib #workout #fit #fitness #fitfam #workoutsnap
Happy Friday Everyone!! Well we made it through the end of the work week! I am looking forward to relaxing tonight. Today was a planned long run and all I really wanted to do was take a nap.😴 But I got into work early today so I could be home early. Katherine joined me for 20 minutes of my run today which helped distract me.😊❀️ We watched Friends today during our run so I decided to wear one of my favorite shirts πŸ’™ I hope everyone has a great Friday. #pivot #friends #tgif #longrun #running #run #runner #instarunners #instarun #runnersworld #womenrunning #inspiringwomenrunners #runnerslife #runhappy #runitfast #runchat #happyrunner #runnerscommunity #exercise #cardio #fitness #fit #fitfam #marathon #marathonrunner #marathontraining #fitnessmotivation #workoutsnap
